Stupid facts keep getting in the way of Global Warming Alarmists. Global Warming, now called climate change because for the past dozen years there hasn't been any global warming, is being used as an excuse to concentrate power in the hands of ruling elite, and is not based on solid science.
Stupid facts not matching what the statists, who want power over every aspect of our lives, wish to portray are having problems like polar bears, the very image of global warming, are doing very well actually. WattsUpWithThat.com reports noted that the image of a stranded polar bear doesn't jive with National Geographic's longest recorded polar bear swim of 426 miles or recent Canadian survey which found a 66% higher than expected polar bear population. "The (polar) bear population is not in crisis as people believed. There is no doom and gloom," according to Drikus Gissing, director of wildlife management for the Nunavut region in Canada. Note that it is reported that the scientist for the Canadian Department of the Interior, whose 2004 research concerning drowning polar bears which inspired Al Gore and others has been placed on administrative leave for unspecified wrongdoing.
Speaking of Wrongdoing, don't forget that Professor Peter Gleick, who was chairman of the ethics committee at the American Geophysical Union, and a supposed ethics expert with the Pacific Institute. Was caught and subsequently admitted to stealing documents from Heartland last February. It appears that he also forged other documents to attempt to make the think-tank look bad. MSNBC reported that "In the field of climate science, when someone - especially skeptics - did something ethically questionable or misrepresented facts, scientist Peter Gleick was usually among the first and loudest to cry foul. He chaired a prominent scientific society's ethics committee. He created an award for what he considered lies about global warming." I wonder if he'll get his own award this year, since the forged data exposed in Climate Gate was out last year, the field of new exposed liars in global warming is smaller. He will have to compete with NASA but he might win.
Down in the Antarctic, new satellite survey technology has resulted in finding that there are about twice as many emperor penguins as previously thought. Again facts don't support global warming alarmists.
Glaciers are actually growing not shrinking. A Nature study using satellite imagery, showed that higher glaciers have been adding ice, specifically the Himalayan Karakorum range, has added significant mass over the past decade. This of course does not match the UN IPCC 2007 prediction that "Glaciers in the Himalayas are receding faster than in any other part of the world and if the present rate continues, the likelihood of their disappearing by the year 2035..." Yes the IPCC retracted that and said it was based on an old 1999 media interview, but then the actual science is not important to global warming alarmists, and they only retracted the finding when exposed.
What global warming alarmists don't like or want to talk about is that some glaciers are melting because of unseen volcanic activity releasing massive amounts of heat. Volcanic activity in general is not considered or counted in any of the global warming alarmist models. Spewing massive amounts of pollutants and nothing to say of the huge amount of heat, excluding volcanic activity from climate models only makes those models less reliable.
How could anybody say that this affects climate?
Even media darling and doomsday author James Lovelock who's works include hysterical titles like "Revenge of Gaia: Why the Earth Is Fighting Back - and How We Can Still Save Humanity," and "The Vanishing Face of Gaia: A Final Warning - Enjoy It While You Can" has even changed his tune. Lovelock, agrees with IPCC acknowledging that although CO2 levels are still rising the result is not an automatic and direct rise in temperature. In an April 23, 2012 MSNBC interview he says, "The world has not warmed up very much since the millennium. Twelve years is a reasonable time... it (the temperature) has stayed almost constant, whereas it should have been rising -- carbon dioxide is rising, no question about that now". "The problem is we don't know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books - mine included - because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn't happened."
Earthlier this year 49 Prominent NASA Scientists and Astronauts have publicly spanked NASA for supporting global warming alarmism without supporting scientific evidence.
The UN 62nd General assembly in July 2008 said: "...it had been estimated that there would be between 50 million and 200 million environmental migrants by 2010." Oops, they were wrong, populations in coastal areas like the Bahamas increase and environmental migrants never appeared (LINK, but the UN did try to cover up its mistake. (LINK
It's simple look for power and money. Like everything else follow the money, when an environmental study concludes we need more government control or more centralized control, or more regulations, look at who paid for the study. If the study was paid for by the government and it concludes or is used to further increased government regulation, or more power with the government, then just like a study paid for by Monsanto which says genetically modified food is better than food grown organically with from heirloom seeds you might want to consider the source.
The truth is that any "scientific" study which empowers who ever funded it should be questioned, especially if it is government funded and is used to limit individual liberty and empower government. The truth is that ".. we don't know what the climate is doing." Truth Hurts! Especially the truth that statists are using "climate change" to further erode individual rights and concentrate power in a few elite. This is the truth that must be exposed and addressed.
