This morning, December 13th, the following was released by AP …
The U.N. climate chief warned Thursday that a deadlock between the United States and the European Union over emissions cuts threatened to derail talks aimed at launching negotiations for a new global warming pact.
”If we don’t get wording on the future, then the whole house of cards falls to pieces,” said Yvo de Boer, as a two-week U.N. climate conference entered the final stretch. Washington has refused to accept language in a draft document that would allow negotiations for a successor to the Kyoto Protocol to consider asking industrialized nations to cut emissions by 25 percent to 40 percent by 2020. The EU favors inclusion of specific targets in the document.
To negotiate for cleaner air is a good thing, but articles in the Kyoto Protocol treaty are about global warming alarmist policy. The present treaty has not been adhered to by certain nations that signed it. So it is another UN endeavor that costs certain participants while others don’t pay their share, and with the past record of scandals, it is wise for the US or any other nation to balk at a policy based upon junk science. If nations are serious about cleaning up air and water pollution than that is what they should address – not some consensus that later, after trillions of dollars are wasted find out that it was all hype.
Problem is that logical voices are being snuffed out as the media and science groups join the alarmist clamor for something that is a natural occurrence in Earth’s history. Nations are on the road to putting themselves in economic stress over something that if was occurring as fast a rate as they claim – there would no way to stop it and the only thing we could do is prepare for it. Ice and snow in the pole regions of Earth have receded on several occasions, but no one is mentioning that once the Antarctica was green land, as well as the place we now know as “Greenland”. Once dinosaurs roamed through vast green grasslands, forests and jungles, in a world where the Earth was truly globally warmed. But it changed, and those that didn’t change with it, died.
By all means – we should endeavor to clean up pollutants around our planet and ensure that large forests exist everywhere to perform the remarkable process of using carbon dioxide to generate oxygen. Plant life, like water, is important to life on Earth and we should treat it like the treasure it is. But we have to stop listening to those whose interests are other than what they claim. We have to meet challenges with logic and purpose that benefits all in whatever actions a body of governments or a single government undertakes.
One question may be asked: Is this gradual change just a swing or is it “permanent” – lasting for a long period of geological time?
Records show that the average Earth temperatures, specifically in certain locations, were warmer than they have been in the last decade. So what’s with that? Let’s approach this with reasoning and real scientific endeavor – not panic-stricken, politically motivated alarmist responses.
This is one of my major arguments against the global warming consensus.
What is the primary tool of socialist/communist/statist governments? Using fear of something in their propaganda is one of the ten points of Marxism. Here is a recent statement from the British foreign secretary Jack Straw, who said:
…skeptics should be treated like advocates of Islamic terror and denied access to the media.
This is another example of a tool using political tactics of Marxism – withholding information and forbidding disagreement of the “facts” disseminated by a government. In other words, keeping the truth from the public and not allowing any other idea to form or be presented. This sort of Marxist behavior exists in places where government controls the education system, so this is nothing new.
Every time someone drowns as a result of floods in Bangladesh, an airline executive should be dragged out of his office and drowned.
Another rule of the ten planks of Marxism – corporations and commercial entities are operated by evil wealthy people, it is called class warfare [more like jealousy] – creating animosity between the natural economic differences amongst the people of a civilization. Should we bite the hand that feeds us? No. Should we regulate commerce and corporations to ensure that fair business practices exist and they are not polluting our planet? Yes. Should we advocate fair business practices and fair employment? Yes.
The leadership behind this and their militant followers want you to believe that our planet’s very existence is threatened because some ice is melting in traditionally cold regions and the temperature has been fluctuating (less than one degree).
And, by the way, these are the same people who rammed evolution down our throats, and now tells us that life on Earth cannot adapt to change and will be totally destroyed. Hmm. The same people who cannot predict weather accurately within a one week period. Hmm.
… While intoning these demands, often in the language of fanatical true believers, what global warming militants seldom discuss is the real cost of their proposals – both in terms of dollars and in terms of human lives.
Just radically curtailing use of refrigeration would result in millions of human deaths from food spoilage and contamination. Restrictions on use of cars, airplanes and other means of transportation would wipe out much of the progress of the last 100 years. And drastically curtailing industrial activity would result in global depression, disease and death.
Like it or not, industrial society has made possible long lives and prosperity for billions of people who otherwise would have died at a young age from poverty, disease and starvation.
Mr. Wollstein goes on to discuss reasons why the global warming effects are taken place, et cetera. Go to this link and check it out.
That means that less than 2/1000 of all CO2 is produced by human activity. So even if we wiped out every car, power plant, jet liner, and human being from the face of the earth, there would be no noticeable effect on global CO2 levels.
The most important greenhouse gas by far is water vapor, which evaporates from oceans, lakes and rivers. Water vapor accounts for up to 90% of the earth’s greenhouse effect. …
To put it another way, the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere is the result of changes in solar activity, not the cause of it.
Climate change is natural, continuous, and caused by changes in solar emissions. Over hundreds of thousand of years, the earth’s average surface temperature has varied within a narrow 4-degree temperature range. That variation causes both “warm periods,” like we are now living in, and “cold periods” accompanied by ice ages, which periodically destroy most life on earth.
And Mr. Wollstein basically states what I have written:
Yes, the world has real environmental problems caused by man, including pollution of the seas and destruction of rain forests. But the “global warming crisis” is largely a myth.
For example, while the UN’s 1995 “Global Temperature Chart” clearly demonstrates that the earth was much warmer than today during the Medieval Warm Period, more recent UN temperature charts have eliminated the Warm Period altogether.
Remember what I told you about progressives, socialists, communists and tyrannical leaders – they don’t want you to know truth, only what they choose to reveal to you. The tyrannical leadership wants you to believe that they are the only ones that can keep things in order and that you cannot be an individual and stand up and take charge of your own life. Those who insist upon the Big Government ideology put themselves above the average citizen and want the public to believe that government must control virtually every aspect of our lives.
And the information reported is not the same as the reality …
These “continuous warming” graphs contradict thoroughly-documented periods when the earth was getting cooler, including the “little Ice Age” from 1450 to 1850, and a period of record cold from 1940-1970. In fact, the 1940-1970 cooling period resulted in a frenzy in which the media claimed that human industrial activity (particularly our old friend, CO2 emissions) was about to cause by 1995 a new ice age which would threaten all life on earth. Popular magazines, like Popular Science, even featured terrifying pictures on their covers of major U.S. cities covered by ice.
But the folks at the UN are not including this information in their “talks” at their “conferences”. And you know why. Isn’t about time to defang the UN or at least withdraw our support until it either reforms or reinvents itself? Shouldn’t aggressive/tyrannical nations not be allowed to participate in UN activities? What better incentive to encourage leadership of nations to form a democracy? What better way to defang rogue nations that cause so much trouble in the world – like North Korea and Iran, for example? But I digress …
The bad news is that the climate model on which so much effort is expended are unreliable because they still use fudge-factors rather than physics to represent important things like evaporation and convection, clouds and rainfall.
What is evident here is that we must not panic over something that isn’t true …
The bottom line: Don’t worry about global warming. It is not caused by human beings or by our CO2 emissions. The amount of warming that is occurring is normal and modest, and does not threaten the earth or human life. The estimated one degree increase in the next 100 years isn’t going to melt the ice caps or put London and New York ten feet under water.
What we DO have to worry about are the leftist elites who are trying to push this on the world’s nations. One must query why? Do they really believe this bad scientific examination/research – or do they have other, underlying reasons? Remember that the EU promotes Big Government. A government that is designed to take over the lives of their citizens from cradle to grave, is a government who insists that they (those in power) can run your life better than you can. And every time we do not take care of our own personal life and insist that government “do something” – we are asking those in government to take over. Freedom and liberty is then thrown out the window. Socialism has been progressively popular in Europe, with some groups insisting that a democratic republic is better.
Reviewing Al Gore’s political record, one should have been suspicious of the global warming advocacy from the start. Instead, he has won an Academy Award for a “documentary” on the subject, sold books on the subject, and now has won, of all things, a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in the global warming scam. And now, he is preparing to become even wealthier by joining a business venture that is based upon the global warming hype. Can you see the big picture here?
And, Wollstein agrees as well …
If global warming is not man-made, not an impending disaster, and actually good for the earth, why are so many prominent people claiming the exact opposite?
The answer in two words is: money and power.
Those who promote the popular global warming disaster myth are rewarded with promotions, large grants, big book and video sales (like Al Gore’s bestselling An Inconvenient Truth video), and more political power. The ideology of “impending global warming disaster” is indeed a very convenient lie for would-be power-seekers. Literally billions of dollars (particularly from government) are pouring into the coffers of environmental groups which repeat the “global warming disaster” party line. All of this money has resulted n the public being constantly bombarded by ever-more shrill forecasts of global warming doom and gloom. And it’s getting worse. Schools are now indoctrinating children as young as five about the impending “global warming disaster.” Posters in schools warn, “Your mommy and daddy are destroying the planet.”
”Global warming” has become the new, politically-correct truth, and those who question it are increasingly denied access to the media, refused jobs, or are stigmatized as evil “destroyers of the earth.”
In fact, the claimed “scientific consensus on global warming,” is largely a fraud. …
Skeptics include some of the world’s foremost scientists: 85 climate experts who signed the 1995 Leipzig Declaration … 4,000 scientists from around the world (including 70 Nobel laureates) who signed the Heidelberg Appeal … and the 17,000 American scientists who signed the Oregon Petition denying that human activity was the cause of global warming.

In any event, scientific fact is not established by opinion polls, but by science.
Scientist Peter Doran confirmed in 2002 that the Antarctic has been cooling while climate models all predict a strong warming.
The world’s best meteorologists using the most advanced computers cannot predict local weather two weeks in the future. So how can global warming proponents predict the entire world’s climate 50 or 100 years in the future? The answer is they can’t. …
There are those who want to return to the horse and buggy days, forgetting that urban areas would be polluted with another disease-carrying pollutant: horse manure (even with the use of manure catching bags for horses drawing carriages, carts, and wagons) – Catherine Bennett of The Guardian in the United Kingdom writes:
In short, if we can rise to the challenge, the permanent abolition of the wheel would have the marvelously synergistic effect of creating thousands of new jobs – as blacksmiths, farriers, grooms, and so on – at the same time as it conserved energy and saved the planet from otherwise inevitable devastation.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed – and thus clamorous to be led to safety – by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
Global warming hysteria matches that statement.
And, isn’t it utterly convenient for the proponents of global warming hysteria that they do not invite or forbid any scientists who disagree from attending meetings and conferences? Are you not suspicious yet?
A presidential election is coming up. Please include in your issue considerations (and insist that candidates discuss it) the matter concerning global warming. This president, one of the few things he has done that I agree with, has been persistent in combating the doom and gloom advocates to prevent further waste of taxpayer funding on events and entities such as the Kyoto Protocol treaty.
A final question to you: Remember photosynthesis in high school science? Plants use CO2 (carbon dioxide), sun and water and in return produce oxygen and other byproducts. I rest my case. Global warming, as the alarmists present it – is a MYTH. Don’t fall for it, and don’t elect any public official who promotes the consensus.
