The Global Warming Fraud; Politics Above Truth

Most people, including the fifth columnists in Washington D.C., know that Global Warming is bunk.  It is not even junk science.  It is a pack lies designed to tear down the United States and remake it into a police state; void of any individual liberty or economic prosperity.

Why do some people think the planet is warming because of air conditioners and bar-b-q grills, without a shred of credible evidence?  David Deming author of Death of a Civilization, provides some insight in his post Global Warming Is a Fraud, posted at Lew Rockwell dot com.

One reason is that the temperature data from weather stations appear to be hopelessly contaminated by urban heat effects. A survey of the 1221 temperature stations in the US by meteorologist Anthony Watts and his colleagues is now more than 80 percent complete. The magnitude of putative global warming over the last 150 years is about 0.7 °C. But only 9 percent of meteorological stations in the US are likely to have temperature errors lower than 1 °C. More than two-thirds of temperature sensors used to estimate global warming are located near artificial heating sources such as air conditioning vents, asphalt paving, or buildings. These sources are likely to introduce artifacts greater than 2 °C into the temperature record.

To validate their idiotic claims, eco-Nazi’s cook their data in a manner some Wall Street financial firms would be envious of.

Another cause of global warming hysteria is the infiltration of science by ideological zealots who place politics above truth. Earlier this month, the Obama administration issued a report that concluded global warming would have a number of deleterious effects on the US. In 1995, one of the lead authors of this report told me that we had to alter the historical temperature record by “getting rid” of the Medieval Warm Period.

Deming goes on to provide an anecdotal history lesson of climate change hysteria that dates back to the early 1900’s.

If we had an appreciation for history, we would not be fooled so easily. It has all happened before, albeit on a smaller scale in an age where people had more common sense. On May 19, 1912, the Washington Post posed these questions: “Is the climate of the world changing? Is it becoming warmer in the polar regions?” On November 2, 1922, the Associated Press reported that “the Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the waters too hot.” On February 25, 1923, the New York Times concluded that “the Arctic appears to be warming up.” On December 21, 1930, the Times noted that “Alpine glaciers are in full retreat.” A few months later the New York Times concluded that there was “a radical change in climatic conditions and hitherto unheard of warmth” in Greenland. About the only thing that has changed at the Times since 1930 is that no one working there today is literate enough to use the word “hitherto.”

He ends his post with an appropriate quote from H.L. Mencken, “the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”

I’ll end only with,

God help us!
