The Mother of All Hoaxes … Alan Caruba
J.D. Longstreet | July 18, 2012
There was a brief flurry of stories in the media at the beginning of what has become a historic summer of hot weather across the U.S. that global warming was to blame. They faded swiftly because the public has concluded that global warming is the mother of all hoaxes, because we are in the midst of a failing economy and the political campaigns that will decide if the nation literally lives or dies.
This has not stopped the Public Broadcast Systemâ€™s News Hour from airing a new series â€œon how climate change in the Pacific Northwest is affecting the regionâ€™s Native American Indian tribesâ€”flooding their reservations and threatening the regionâ€™s salmon fisheries.â€ Climate change is shorthand for global warming.
While the nationâ€™s media continues to propagate the hoax, what hope is there for the TRUTH?
Significantly â€œthe NewsHourâ€™s year-long Coping with Climate Change series is funded by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation.â€ The nationâ€™s leading foundations have been funding the global warming hoax for decades and continue to do so.
So one more article about the deception and duplicity of global warming may seem superfluous and it would be if the U.S. Air Force wasnâ€™t spending $59 per gallon of â€œgreen biofuelâ€ and the U.S. Navy wasnâ€™t doing the same for its Great Green Fleet. The justification for this is the utterly false assertion that â€œalternativesâ€ are needed in the event we canâ€™t produce or import petroleum.
The U.S. is floating on an ocean of oil, but for now it can only be extracted from lands owned privately because the Obama administration has done everything in its power to restrict access to it on federally owned lands and, of course, the billions of barrels locked up off-shore.
In exactly the same way that the Obama administration has presided over the loss of billions in subsidies and loan guarantees for the solar panel companies or the ridiculous costs of wind power industry compared to a single coal-burning plant, at the heart of it all has been the claim the global warming is caused by â€œgreenhouse gasâ€ emissions, carbon dioxide, that imperil the Earth.
Recently, my friend Joseph L. Bast, the president of The Heartland Institute, wrote an article, â€œIPCC Admits Its Past Reports Were Junkâ€, posted on AmericanThinker.com.
It struck me that very few people even know that IPCC is the acronym for the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Few people know that the entire global warming hoax was generated by the IPCC, let alone know what it is.
Most people associate global warming with Al Gore who has been among its most prominent advocates, warning that â€œthe Earth has a feverâ€ and that we were doomed if we didnâ€™t stop generating carbon dioxide. Gore and his collaborators wanted to sell â€œcarbon creditsâ€ in exchanges around the world and for a while he greatly enriched himself.
In Australia, the government has imposed a tax on carbon dioxide which it likely to destroy its manufacturing base along with the extraction of coal and other minerals.
Here in the U.S. the Environmental Protection Agency continues to assert that carbon dioxide must be regulated as a â€œpollutantâ€ under the Clean Air Act and, if successful, will likewise destroy what is left of our manufacturing base and all other industries that generate or use energy to function.
And the man in the street remains completely clueless about the impending ruin of the nation based on the reports of the IPCC which the Inter-Academy Council (IAC), a group created by the worldâ€™s science academies to provide advice to international bodies, has long since concluded were utterly false and baseless.
On June 27, the IPCC issued a statement saying it had completed the process of implementation of the recommendations that an August 2010 IAC analysis had made after examining who was contributing to their reports, who was reviewing their content (the same people!), and the astonishing, utterly false, claim of â€œa consensusâ€ that global warming was happening.
As Bast points out, â€œIt means that all of the â€˜endorsementsâ€™ of the climate consensus made by the worldâ€™s national academies of scienceâ€”which invariably refer to the reports of the IPCC as their scientific basisâ€”were based on false or unreliable data and therefore should be disregarded or revised.â€
â€œIt means that the EPAâ€™s â€˜endangerment findingâ€™â€”with its claim that carbon dioxide is a pollutant and threat to human healthâ€”was wrong and should be overturned.â€
It is a terrible thing to live in a nation governed by falsehoods, spending the public wealth on useless technologies, living under the tyranny of government departments and agencies pursuing those lies for their own agendas and political masters.
Unless the harm perpetrated in the name of global warming is reversed, we shall all remain the victims of the United Nations IPCC, the EPA, and all other entities seeking to control every aspect of our lives.
The poles are not melting, the glaciers are growing, the oceans rise mere millimeters over centuries, and right now planet Earth is cooling.
