Global warming: Fake news from the start

“The climate scare is the biggest deception in history.”
– Dr. Tim Ball and Tom Harris_________________________

“Climate alarmists insist that manmade carbon dioxide emissions are the primary or even sole force driving global warming and climate change,” says Paul Driessen. “They refer to carbon dioxide as “carbon” emissions and “pollution” – knowing these terms are false and misleading, but also knowing they help drive the “dangerous manmade climate change” narrative and campaigns to end fossil fuel use.”

“In fact, as Tim Ball and Tom Harris note in this perceptive review of the history behind the climate change movement, the entire global warming narrative has been junk science and fake news from the very beginning.”

Global warming: Fake news from the start

Senator Tim Wirth, scientist James Hansen and others manufactured the climate “crisis”

By Dr. Tim Ball and Tom Harris

President Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change because it is a bad deal for America.

He could have made the decision simply because the science is false. However, most of the American and global public have been brainwashed into believing the science is correct (and supported by the faux 97% consensus), so they would not have believed that explanation.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and indeed the leaders of many western democracies, support the Agreement and are completely unaware of the gross deficiencies in the science. If they understood those deficiencies, they wouldn’t be forcing a carbon dioxide (CO2) tax on their citizens.

Trudeau and other leaders show how little they know, and how little they assume the public knows, by calling it a “carbon tax” on “carbon emissions.” But CO2 is a gas, the trace atmospheric gas that makes life on Earth possible. Carbon is a solid, and carbon-based fuels are solid (coal), liquid (oil) or gaseous (natural gas).

CO2 is an invisible, odorless gas essential to plant photosynthesis

By constantly railing about “carbon emissions,” Trudeau, Obama and others encourage people to think of carbon dioxide as something “dirty,” like soot, which really is carbon. Calling CO2by its proper name would help the public remember that it is actually an invisible, odorless gas essential to plant photosynthesis.

Canadian Environment Minister Catherine McKenna is arguably the most misinformed of the lot, saying in a recent interview that “polluters should pay.” She too either does not know that CO2is not a pollutant, or she is deliberately misleading people.

Like many of her political peers, McKenna dismisses credentialed PhD scientists who disagree with her approach, labelling them “deniers.” She does not seem to understand that questioning scientific hypotheses, even scientific theories, is what all scientists should do, if true science is to advance.

That is why the Royal Society’s official motto is “Nullius in verba,” Latin for “Take nobody’s word for it.” Ironically, the Society rarely practices this approach when it comes to climate change.

Mistakes such as those made by McKenna are not surprising, considering that from the outset the entire claim of anthropogenic global warming (AGW) was built on falsehoods and spread with fake news.

A plot to deceive the world

The plot to deceive the world about human-caused global warming gathered momentum right after the World Meteorological Organization and United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) created the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 1988.

After spending five days at the U.N. with Maurice Strong, the first executive director of UNEP, Hamilton Spectator investigative reporter Elaine Dewar concluded that the overarching objective of the IPCC was political, not scientific. “Strong was using the U.N. as a platform to sell a global environment crisis and the global governance agenda,” she wrote.

The political agenda required “credibility” to accomplish the deception. It also required some fake news for momentum. Ideally, this would involve testimony from a scientist before a legislative committee.

Riding the global warming issue even if the theory is wrong

U.S. Senator Timothy Wirth (D-CO) was fully committed to the political agenda and the deception. As he explained in a 1993 comment, “We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing.…”

In 1988 Wirth was in a position to jump-start the climate alarm. He worked with colleagues on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee to organize and orchestrate a June 23, 1988 hearing where the lead witness would be Dr. James Hansen, then the head of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

Wirth explained in a 2007  2007 interview with PBS Frontline:

“We knew there was this scientist at NASA, who had really identified the human impact before anybody else had done so and was very certain about it. So, we called him up and asked him if he would testify.”

Hansen did not disappoint. The New York Times reported on June 23, 1988: “Today Dr. James E. Hansen of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration told a Congressional committee that it was 99 percent certain that the warming trend was not a natural variation, but was caused by a buildup of carbon dioxide and other artificial gases in the atmosphere.”

Specifically, Hansen told the committee, “Global warming has reached a level such that we can ascribe with a high degree of confidence a cause and effect relationship between the greenhouse effect and observed warming…. It is already happening now.”

Hansen also testified: “The greenhouse effect has been detected, and it is changing our climate now…. We have already reached the point where the greenhouse effect is important.”

Wirth, who presided at the hearing, was pre-disposed to believe Hansen and told the committee. “As I read it, the scientific evidence is compelling: the global climate is changing as the earth’s atmosphere gets warmer,” Wirth said. “Now the Congress must begin to consider how we are going to slow or halt that warming trend, and how we are going to cope with the changes that may already be inevitable.”

More than any other event, that single hearing before the Energy and Natural Resources Committee publicly initiated the climate scare, the biggest deception in history. It created an unholy alliance between a bureaucrat and a politician, which was bolstered by the U.N. and the popular press – leading to the hoax being accepted in governments, industry boardrooms, schools and churches all across the world.

Hansen embarrassed NASA

Dr. John S. Theon, Hansen’s former supervisor at NASA, wrote to the Senate Minority Office at the Environment and Public Works Committee on January 15, 2009. “Hansen was never muzzled, even though he violated NASA’s official agency position on climate forecasting (i.e., we did not know enough to forecast climate change or mankind’s effect on it). Hansen thus embarrassed NASA by coming out with his claims of global warming in 1988 in his testimony before Congress.”

Hansen never abandoned his single-minded, unsubstantiated claim that CO2 from human activities caused dangerous global warming. He defied Hatch Act limits on bureaucratic political actions, and in 2011 even got arrested at a White House protest against the Keystone XL pipeline. It was at least his third such arrest to that point.

Like Trudeau and other leaders duped by the climate scare, Senator Wirth either had not read or did not understand the science. In fact, an increasing number of climate scientists (including Dr. Ball) now conclude that there is no empirical evidence of human-caused global warming. There are only computer model speculations that humans are causing it, and every forecast made using these models since 1990 has been wrong – with actual temperatures getting further from predictions with every passing year.

President Trump must now end America’s participation in the fake science and fake news of manmade global warming. To do this, he must withdraw the U.S. from further involvement with all U.N. global warming programs, especially the IPCC, as well as the agency that now directs it – the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. He should also launch a “Red Team” exercise that lets non-alarmist scientists examine climate cataclysm claims and the purported evidence for them.

Only then will the U.S. have a chance to fully develop its hydrocarbon resources to achieve the president’s goal of global energy dominance and long-term prosperity for America and the world.

Dr. Tim Ball is an environmental consultant and former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg in Manitoba.

Tom Harris is executive director of the Ottawa, Canada-based International Climate Science Coalition

  1. The only part that is missing from this article is an understanding of the monies being made from this scam. Big industry, universities and government have teamed up in order to fleece the public. When the public’s money is gone their freedoms are next as the One World Government performs it’s magic.

    • The last number I saw was $79 billion spent in the US on research and papers promoting AGW and that was several years ago. I would think it is probably over a $100 billion by now. Global warming is a cash cow for universities and researchers, that is why they violently suppress any dissention from the party line.

  2. I read a remark of a dutchman who stated that CO2 is regulating the rhythm of breathing. Assume that is true, then governments are taxing already breathing of vital organisms? Why do governments need to tax almost everything? In the mean time one is talking about climate change related to an economic boost

  3. I always say, if you hear a woman spouting nonsense about “carbon” – check and see if she’s wearing a diamond .. then if she is point out to her what it is and ask if she doesn’t want to reduce her carbon emissions.

    Might shut her up for once on that one!

  4. As an earth scientist, this is exactly what I’ve been saying for 25 years. Somehow this article has to be read by everyone on the globe so that the Climate Change Farce…. mankinds biggest boondoggle and waste of resources ever, can be STOPPED before more damage is done!

  5. As he explained in a 1993 comment, “We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing.…”

    You might as well make that statement the universal template for all Ruling Class/democRAT/RINO/libcult decisions, because functionally, it already is.

    To wit:

    As (Ruling Class operative) explained in a 2017 comment, “We’ve got to ride the Russkie Collusion issue. Even if the theory of Russkie Collusion is Fake, we will be doing the right thing.…”

    “Doing the right thing” just means protecting themselves and preserving their power, natch.

  6. I think you miss the point completely. You keep saying global warming when it got changed to climate change. You say global cooling but completely dismiss the chemtrailing and the cooling it brings. Yes the sun creates heat. Yes CO2 increases this. And yes chemtrails counter this. If they didn’t SRM there wouldn’t be enougj cooling to create an ice age. You have it wrong.

    • I think you have it wrong:
      Yes the sun creates heat. Yes CO2 increases this.

      CO2 dosent provide heat, the primary GHG is water vapour at over 1% of the atmosphere. Even that GHG doesnt provide heat, it does retain iradiated solar heat from the oceans and the surface of the Earth.
      The chemtrailing or (Contrails which they realy are) and the cooling it brings you refer to; are in the main, hydrocarbon oxides and water vapour, those oxides are recycled by the atmosphere chemistry interactions with UV and EUV.

  7. Sorry Julio but “Man” is actually guilty.

    Governments led by “do-gooders” have mandated and approved all of the impetus in the desire to switch to feel good “renewable” energy sources.

    This has lead to large negative environmental consequences far more disastrous than anything ever likely to occur from insignificant warming from CO2 – if such a consequence is even possible.

    Clearing the Amazon to grow sugar cane and other “biofuels”, cutting down American forests to ship to the UK to burn in a power plant that used to burn coal, etc etc !

    These are just a couple of stupid decisions made by insane people who believe the climate is broken and at least 50% of the population have been hoodwinked into supporting this insanity.

    So, sorry Julio but “Man” is actually guilty.

    • hi Rosco
      didya catch the big ideas broadcast on abc this week?
      unsure if it was a xmas repeat event from earlier..but it WAS a massive anti sceptics savaging
      of course the D word was in full spate
      the amusing thing was the utter refusal BY the “honored guests” to actually DO as they say and that was??? actually checking the data and being critical in any way shape or form
      its all OUR fault..seems we Aussies really are annoying them by not falling into the globalists plan.
      cheered me to hear them griping about that 😉

  8. [ DON’T “EVER” BE CONFUSED ] !!!

    These already have “SOLD-THEIR-SOULS” know EXACTLY what they are doing, whether Prime Ministers, NOT-EVEN-CLOSE-TO-SCIENTISTS, U.N. (United in the name of “WHAT” ???), “Internationalist” – Socialists (Workers Party) or Statesman/Woman/Transsexuals’/Hybrids/Freaks what ever they are have declared “War” on the Human Race riding the CO2 farce straight into Hell “pursuing” eradication of as many (Billions if possible) people as possible !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    And to Canada, “your” Leader is-EVIL-to-his-CORE, shave this “things” HEAD and lets just see what exactly is there ??? !

    Canadians, YOU VOTED INTO POWER A “BEAST”, you the Canadian People are responsible, and now you deserve what you get…

    LiveOn President Donald Trump

    • RickS It appears that there are 4 groups of people in the world. The programmed, the programmers, those in actual control and the few that know what’s happening and are really upset. I think that you and I are in the last group.

  9. It’s always good to remember the genesis of the AGW argument.

    In 1970 a group of well meaning scientists from several specialties Believed they should make an announcement to warn the world about the coming extreme cold. They went directly to the United Nations and asked to make their presentation.

    After they made their request they were told no. For the record their science was based on long term cycles, Ice, archaeologic and solar sciences.

    They continued to seek an audience but it wasn’t until another group of scientists supported by a third organization that went by an acronym I don’t recall, that they received approval to show what they had to prove their thoery in support of their warning.

    The Other group of scientists presented the Global Warming thoery. The third group was a well funded secrete non profit that supported the depopulation of the earth and the scientists promoting Global Warming.

    After both sides made their presentations the Global warming side was accepted and the Global cooling side lost and was put into media joke columns and cartoons.

    I was in school when this took place and my science teacher whom I had thought a great deal of lost my good vibes after weeks of bringing in cartoons mocking the Global Cooling scientists and their science.

    I would like to remind everyone who reads this post that the Global Cooling scientists warned we had 50 years from 1970. What year is it right now? Today we who follow this area of interest know we are seeing a transition into cold. As we follow it we are learning it IS getting colder and by 2019 we should see some extreme cold that will wake up the world to the truth.

    I would like to thank those scientists who put their reputations on the line not knowing that they were doing so. I thank them for their science, integrity and desire to warn the world while time was available.

    May GOD Bless this scientists.

  10. We might as well be back in the 17th century, when they blamed Witches for casting spells making it so cold during the Little Ice Age. Over 600 hundred women were murdered in vEurope alone for it.

    • The Antarctic Ice Sheet is growing. Glaciers in the Himalayas are growing. Glaciers in Washington State are growing. So yeah, I’d say that you did miss something.

      • Best to step away from the media and get the real facts as you’re never get real facts from the so called media.

  11. Carbon is not only a Plant food, all life is carbon based. Every human has on average 18.5% of body mass as carbon. every known organic molecule has carbon in it.
