Climate Fraud -- As If We Didn't Know

Where does falsified data always lead? To the Money. Every scientist on the planet is motivated -- in the spirit of discovery and by the money -- to explore the issue of Global Warming.

Technology is not cheap. It takes a lot of funding to get some programs off the ground. Literally. As Tom Wolfe showed us in The Right Stuff, when the first astronauts began to learn about their future in space, they came to understand the phrase No Bucks, No Buck Rogers.

Global Warming has inspired huge emotional concerns among millions. For reasons that cannot be explained, these millions are terrified by the tales of atmospheric changes that might occur in a hundred years. Remarkably, the same people have no concern for the Five Million Deaths that occur every year because people in some parts of the world drink polluted water. They die because their governments cannot -- will not -- provide clean drinking water.

These callous people, obsessed with the abstract notion of Global Warming and it impact 100 years hence, cannot concern themselves with people dying from problems easily solved Today. Outrageous.


CLIMATE CHANGE: Many experts claim man-made global warming is melting sea ice

THE scientific consensus that mankind has caused climate change was rocked yesterday as a leading academic called it a “load of hot air underpinned by fraud”.

Professor Ian Plimer condemned the climate change lobby as “climate comrades” keeping the “gravy train” going.

In a controversial talk just days before the start of a climate summit attended by world leaders in Copenhagen, Prof Plimer said Governments were treating the public like “fools” and using climate change to increase taxes.

He said carbon dioxide has had no impact on temperature and that recent warming was part of the natural cycle of climate stretching over ­billions of years.

Prof Plimer - author of Heaven and Earth: Global Warming, The Missing Science - told a London audience: “Climates always change. They always have and they always will. They are driven by a number of factors that are random and cyclical.”

His comments came days after a scandal in climate-change research emerged through the leak of emails from the world-leading research unit at the University of East Anglia. They appeared to show that scientists had been massaging data to prove that global warming was taking place

The Climate Research Unit also admitted getting rid of much of its raw climate data, which means other scientists cannot check the subsequent research. Last night the head of the CRU, Professor Phil Jones, said he would stand down while an independent review took place.

Professor Plimer said climate change was caused by natural events such as volcanic eruptions, the shifting of the Earth’s orbit and cosmic radiation. He said: “Carbon dioxide levels have been up to 1,000 times higher in the past. CO2 cannot be driving global warming now.

“In the past we have had rapid and significant climate change with temperature changes greater than anything we are measuring today. They are driven by processes that have been going on since the beginning of time.”

He cited periods of warming during the Roman Empire and in the Middle Ages – when Vikings grew crops on Greenland – and cooler phases such as the Dark Ages and the Little Ice Age from 1300 to 1850.

And he predicted that the next phase would cool the planet.

Climate change is widely blamed on the burning of fossil fuels which release greenhouse gases such as CO2 into the atmosphere, where they trap the sun’s heat.

The talks at Copenhagen are expected to find ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions globally.

But mining geology professor Plimer said there was a huge momentum behind the climate-change lobby.

He suggested many scientists had a vested interest in promoting climate change because it helped secure more funding for research. He said: “The climate comrades are trying to keep the gravy train going. Governments are also keen on putting their hands as deep as possible into our pockets.
