CLIMATEGATE, PART DUH!
By Alan Caruba
It would appear that no amount of the evidence of fraud is sufficient to convince these environmentalist ideologues and radical Leftists that they have either participated in or been taken in by the greatest hoax of the modern era.
Perhaps, though, the latest release of thousands of emails between the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) perpetrators may push them toward a rational conclusion and release the rest of humanity from the penalties and costs imposed by the global warming hoax.
It’s not that the IPCC is not relentless in this ugly business. A report released on November 18, 2011, by these reprehensible liars predicted “more extreme weather events.”
Well, duh! There isn’t a day that goes by without an extreme weather event occurring somewhere on the Earth. One might consider the weather at the northern and southern poles extreme. Or the heat of the Earth’s deserts? Then throw in the usual blizzards, floods, and droughts — and you have a non-stop variety of “extreme weather events” to which to point.
To put it another way, the whole hoax was working just fine until the Earth began to cool around 1998. So, naturally, the IPCC had to (1) change the terminology from global warming to climate change, (2) deny that its “scientists” were lying, and (3) continue the pathetic prediction scheme by pointing to “weather events.”
As reported in the Wall Street Journal, “The scientific link between climate change and extreme weather, however, isn’t uniformly clear, according to the report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, established in 1988 to assist policy makers with climate change.”
That’s right, this whole farce has been going on since 1988. At what point will the “enablers” of global warming accept defeat? Not soon, if one considers that the IPCC is laying on another climate conference to be held in Durban, South Africa from November 28 to December 9, 2011. It will be the 17th opportunity for these deceivers to gather to wine and dine, while taxpayers from the many nations they represent pick up the tab.
Here’s the kicker. “Christina Figueres, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, said “the report also underscored the need for governments to take action to reduce emissions.”
What emissions? Carbon dioxide? A trace gas in the atmosphere (0.038%) that has no effect whatever on climate or weather?
Does anyone grasp how costly all the lies about “emissions” have been and continue to be? The Christmas tree to be erected at the Capitol in Washington, D.C. comes complete with the purchase of socalled “carbon offsets” to pay for its transport 4,200 miles across the country from California. Eighty million tons of “carbon credits” were purchased.
Bear in mind, that tree and all others depend on carbon dioxide in the same way humans and other creatures depend on oxygen! CO2 is vital to the growth of all vegetation on Earth. Without it, we all die.
But what is one Christmas tree, compared to an entire nation, Australia, whose government just imposed a carbon-emissions tax on everything? The tax will drive from the country existing heavy industry and other generators of CO2 that can afford to leave and make those who cannot leave less competitive with global manufacturers and other businesses. Some business will just shut their doors.
This kind of deception is global. The International Energy Agency announced in early November that “dangerous climate change will be essentially irreversible within little over five years.” The news report concluded saying: “The IEA uses conclusions from research collated by the United Nations. Most climate scientists agree with the UN conclusions, although recent polls show a growing proportion of the public in many countries is skeptical of climate change.”
No, most climate scientists do not agree with the UN data because they know how flawed and frequently fraudulent it is. This kind of casual journalistic reference is a lie, along with all the rest of the global warming and/or climate change data from “official” sources like the IPCC, IEA, et al.
In early November the U.S. Department of Energy published “estimates” of global carbon dioxide emissions for the year 2010. Writing in Forbes, James Taylor of The Heartland Institute, took note that the Department concluded that “emissions rose by 6% from 2009 to 2010. This constitutes the largest rise yet recorded.” And then he added that “global temperatures have not risen during the past decade.”
There is no correlation. Never was.
Whether it is the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the International Energy Agency, the U.S. Departments of Energy and Interior or the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, all depend on people being too ignorant or indifferent to grasp the truth that everything done in the name of global warming, climate change, or carbon dioxide emissions is a costly, evil deception.
