which is why they have had to manipulate, throw out, make up, or invert data to keep their theory alive.
Yesterday a leading science academic, Professor Ian Plimer, of Adelaide and Melbourne Universities, called the manmade climate change consensus a “load of hot air underpinned by fraud”. According to the UK Express:
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.”
The recent discovery of scandalous climate change research has rocked the real world. Sadly, many in the “scientific” community refuse to admit there are any problems beyond “poorly chosen words” and emails that were sent in the “heat of the moment”. But if, as Professor Plimer asserts, there is no solid proof that carbon emissions are causing manmade global warming, then the implications for the “climate comrades” are huge.
Climate science has become nothing more than a massive lobby for government research grants. And government officials — worldwide — are using the fabricated data as scare tactics to increase taxes and control over individuals. Both groups have a lot of money and power to lose if global warming is exposed as a made-up hoax.
Professor Plimer stated: “If you have to argue your science by using fraud, your science is not valid.”
The timing for these new developments couldn’t be better as the UN gears up for its climate change summit next week. Of course the dirty data will have no effect whatsoever on the leaders at the summit, but it may have an effect on public opinion, which in turn (hopefully) will have an effect on government.
Last June the U.S. House of Representatives passed a jobs-killing, economy-busting, punitive cap-and-trade bill which now has to make it through the Senate. But on a lighter note: today Australia’s Parliament defeated a cap-and-trade proposal. Here’s hoping the U.S. Senate follows suit.
Oh, yeah — on a completely unrelated topic — northern Texas woke up to snow this morning.
