|UN scam exposed!|
The Great Global Warming Swindle 21:00, Channel 4, 2007/03/08 made a good start.
This is what the programme had to say; with a few added comments and opinions
Global warming isn't science; it's just propaganda and it's really all about the money.
It's a matter of established fact that elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide levels occurred in cooler periods of the Earth's history. This is known from examining the gas content of samples of ice from cores drilled deep into ancient deposits.
In 2005, a House of Lords committee looked at the climate change 'evidence' and found the science weak and uncertain.
Temperatures were much higher one thousand years ago, during the mediaeval period, which was a time of prosperity when there were vineyards in the north of England. There was a 3,000-year period during the Bronze Age when the Earth was much warmer than it is today; but the polar bears weren't wiped out.
There is no correlation between human (industrial) carbon dioxide production and global temperatures.
Carbon dioxide is just a minor component of the Earth's atmosphere; some 0.054%; and it is a relatively minor greenhouse gas. 95% of the greenhouse effect, when it occurs, is caused by water vapour.
If not carbon dioxide, then what controls the climate?
The Sun. There is a close correlation between solar activity (which can be monitored in terms of the number of sun spots formed) and global temperatures over the last 400 years. Graphs of both show matching peaks and troughs. In times of high solar activity, the blast of particles expelled from the Sun (a.ka. the solar wind) blows cosmic rays away from the Earth.
In the 1970s, the big climate scare story was that the world was getting cooler and the planet was heading for a new ice age.
Then a Swedish scientist suggested that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere might help to delay the big freeze.
The only way to get on at the extreme end of the environmental movement is to be more extreme than the next person.
It's a new guise for anti-capitalist, former communists; the sort of people who were rampaging around Europe in the 1970s. And it's all about funding. Huge amounts of cash are being hurled at computer climate models. So if such a model assumes that carbon dioxide drives climate change, then its results will always be rubbish. But the more dramatic the scare story that comes out of the model, the greater the certainty that it will be published.
Ice breaking off glaciers in spring is as natural as leaves falling off trees in autumn, and the polar bear population is RISING!
Greenland was much warmer 1,000 years ago but there was no dramatic melting of the ice; but that doesn't make the headlines. Big chunks of ice breaking off polar glaciers make dramatic pictures but this is the way things have always happened. The only difference between past times and today is that we have satellites which can show it happening.
The IPCC report was censored of negative and inconvenient paragraphs.
Perhaps the worst element of the fraud is the censorship, which was performed for political reasons, and the UN's dishonest assertion that the IPCC report was backed by 2,500 of the world's top scientists. People who do not agree with the reports conclusions are listed, quite cynically, among its supporters.
George Bush the Younger has fallen for the con job.
The Precautionary Principle; cut carbon dioxide production just to be on the safe side; is his new religion, even though this policy impacts heavily and negatively on the poorest parts of the world's population by stunting development.
What the programme left out is that the rest of the Solar System is also warming up.
If the Sun is causing the Earth to get warmer, and it's not due to the effect of man-made carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere, the same effect should be evident on other planets. Surprise! This is exactly what NASA and ESA have found happening on Mars, the moons of Jupiter and Saturn and even on Triton, the moon of distant Neptune.
What the objectors said.
The programme's critics said that it should have included a 'new' graph on temperature changes, which was used in former US presidential candidate Al Gore's dodgy film on climate change. This graph was conjured up in 2001 by the UN's IPCC. It is known as the 'hockey stick' because it creates the impression that global temperatures have suddenly shot up at an alarming rate.
The graph somehow loses both the Medieval Warm Period and the Little Ice Age. Unfortunately, the red 'hockey stick' shape at the right-hand end is still obtained when random data is entered into the computer programme which created the thoroughly discredited graph.
The objectors said that the programme's graph showing a close correlation between solar variation and temperature change was inaccurate. Not so, the programme's director, Michael Durkin, replied. That data still stands. As does the data from ice cores, which shows that temperature changes always take place several hundred years before big changes in the atmosphere's carbon dioxide content.
What the objectors can't explain.
1. Why global temperatures went down and there was a global cooling scare in the 1970s at a time when carbon dioxide levels were going up. The Carbon con-men make noises about increased sulphur dioxide pollution in the atmosphere from industry causing a global cooling effect. But they can't explain why temperatures aren't plummeting today, when China and other expanding nations are shoving record amounts of it into the atmosphere.
