Shouting from the Rooftops

IPCC authors acknowledge that a solar mechanism (the Sun) seems to be at work. 

Shouting from the Rooftops

By Alan Caruba

For years, decades actually, I and others have been shouting from the rooftops that global warming was a hoax. We were called “deniers” and “skeptics.” A lot of time has passed since the late 1980s when Dr. James Hansen, the director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, kicked off the global warming hoax with testimony before Congress.

Global warming gained momentum because the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seized on it as a means to redistribute the wealth from developed nations to those that have lagged behind and because the media love stories of imminent danger. The media remains largely committed to global warming despite ample evidence it is (a) not happening and (b) a complete lie.

While many regard former Vice President Al Gore as the poster boy of global warming, it has been the IPCC that has been the main culprit in advancing the hoax, issuing reports of dire consequences if nations do not reduce their “greenhouse gas” emissions (mainly carbon dioxide abbreviated as CO2) to avoid a dramatically increased warming in ten, twenty, or fifty years. As time went along, global warming was coming any day now, but it never seemed to arrive.

The problem the lead scientists providing the bogus data to support the IPCC reports encountered was the perfectly natural cooling cycle the Earth entered about sixteen years ago. In 2009, a leak of emails between them was dubbed “Climategate” as it revealed how these conspirators were panicked by the cooling that began to occur around 1998. It also revealed their efforts to smear scientists who dissented from their claims as “deniers” and “skeptics” and plotted to deny them access to leading science publications.

The primary claim made by the IPCC and other “warmists” was that there was a “consensus” among the world’s scientists, but anyone familiar with science knows that it does not operate on consensus. Instead, each new hypothesis or theory is always challenged, often for decades, until it is proven to be reproducible and resistant to alternative interpretation.

John O’Sullivan of Principia Scientific International, an organization of scientists and others battling the global warming hoax, recently reported to its members, interested parties, and science writers like myself of the leak of data by one of the IPCC researchers, Alec Rawls, who no longer wanted to be a party to its reports.

O’Sullivan reported that “Up till now the role of the Sun, referred to as enhanced solar forcing, received only scant mention in prior IPCC reports (AR3 and AR4) being glibly dismissed. But this is the first time IPCC authors have acknowledged the evidence that a solar mechanism seems to be at work.”

“The source of the leak, Alec Rawls, said, “I participated in ‘expert review’ of the Second Order Draft of AR5 (the next IPCC report), Working Group 1 (“The Scientific Basis”) and am now making the full draft available to the public. His reason for taking this action, a break in the confidentially agreement, was the “systematic dishonesty of the report” which he said was corrupted by “bad faith” and “fraud.”

It might seem obvious to most people that the Sun is the most powerful factor in climate change, given the records of the gains and reductions of solar radiation, the Earth’s many ice ages, and the simple fact that it gets colder at night than during the day!

The solar mechanism is, of course, the Sun.

The global warming—now called climate change—hoax depends on convincing people that greenhouse gases, the exhalation of carbon dioxide by humans and mammals, and emissions based on the use of coal, oil, and natural gas pose a threat to the planet’s temperatures. In a very real way, hard core environmentalists favor reducing the world’s population by any means possible and the reduction in all the modern technologies that use energy, coal, natural gas and oil, to enhance life around the globe.

“The (IPCC) admission of strong evidence for enhanced solar forcing changes everything,” said Rawls. “The climate alarmists can’t continue to claim that warming was entirely due to human activity over a period when solar warming effects…were acknowledged to be important.”

In other words, humans play a very small role in the Earth’s climate, especially when compared to the power of the Sun.

This is what some very brave climate scientists and meteorologists have been saying for decades! They have been ignored or derided by the mainstream media who are wedded to the global warming hoax. It had the power of the federal government behind it (and still does) because it remains the justification for costly programs. From the Environmental Protection Agency to the Defense Department and all federal agencies in between, they continue to pump out propaganda and regulations based on this Big Lie.

The United Nations program exists to redistribute billions from developed nations to those who have lagged behind. The recently concluded IPCC conference made the transition from global warming to climate change to “sustainability” with the demand that less developed nations receive funding if they are affected by natural weather events such as hurricanes, heat waves, floods, droughts, and tornadoes.

As Ralph B. Alexander, a physicist and the author of “Global Warming False Alarm”, recently noted, “The link between extreme weather and global warming has as much scientific basis as the pagan rite of human sacrifice to ensure a good harvest.”

Alexander noted that weather events “show no long-term trend whatever over more than a century of reliable data. Weather extremes have occurred from time immemorial, long before industrialization boosted the CO2 level in the atmosphere.”

Indeed, the increase of CO2 has not induced or deterred the current climate cycle; cooling. Since the length of interglacial periods between ice ages is about 11,500 years, the Earth is on the cusp of a new ice age. Ironically, the CO2 increase may be delaying it.

I love the quote from Ralph B. Alexander, physicist and the author of “Global Warming False Alarm”: “The link between extreme weather and global warming has as much scientific basis as the pagan rite of human sacrifice to ensure a good harvest.”

  1. CO2 will neither increase the temperature not lower it to any significant degree. Therefore it will not delay a coming iceage if indeed we are on the cusp of one.

    • Precisely, all the intense periods of cooling of the last minimums of the last 1500 years (Sporer, Mauder, Dalton, etc.) are a clear indication that the present interglacial is ending, and probably reaching it’s final moments just now, when so many of these cycles are converging.
      No connection with CO2 whatsoever, no delay, no intensification, nothing.
      Just the normal cycles going their normal ways as in previous glacial periods.

  2. And all the Pope’s horses and all the Pope’s men could not forever make the world believe doctrine VS the scrutiny of truth.

  3. Cicero once said something to the effect that when you don’t have a case, attack your opponent’s character. When any debate strays from the facts and the name calling starts, i.e., “climate change deniers,” it’s a good indication that the people doing the name calling don’t have a case, or at the very least, they don’t have nearly as strong a case as they would have you believe.

  4. I suspect the body heat from the 7 billion souls on the planet have more ‘global warming’ effect than the trace gas CO2.

  5. The only change that humans have caused in climate is the increase in heat islands in and around cities over multiple decades as cities grew thruout the last century and more recently airports where most observations are kept,the heat island expanded and the airports have seen major expansion over even the last 20 years,especially major travel hubs,so that has more of an effect on temps compared to the same airport circa 1960.

    • I agree it’s a local effect, not a global one, which is more than compensated by global trends caused by solar radiation, air circulation, ocean cycles, volcanism, etc.
      If the cities are well taken care of with lots of trees and parks, even this “heat island” effect becomes not so pronounced.

  6. Want to bet the people at the top of this redistribution will be lining their pocket$ with million$ per-month. So what does funding poor underdeveloped countries have to do global warming. It would seem to do so would run counter to the agenda would it not?

  7. As for The Sun probably being the main driver of weather and climate, someone ought to tell the I.P.C.C. “No shit, Sherlock”

  8. The trouble is – Global Warming and Global Cooling are not a Hoax, they do exist. To tag man with the responsibility for causing them is a LIE. A Lie contrived to Dupe People/Governments out of money and to CONTROL Peoples Lives.

  9. And yet, “everyone” is still reporting that last year; no matter which year; was the hottest one on record or in the top five/ten. Even the comedy hour that passes for the local news in Duluth is singing the IPCC song of “We’re All Gonna Die, ‘Cause of Global Warming”. Really hard to educate people when your running up against that sort of crap all the time. Most people can’t be bothered to actually read up on stuff and get educated so they know garbage when they hear it.

    • We cannot educate people but the facts can, and they mounting more and more every year, at an increasing rate, because the cooling trend seems to be accelerating.

  10. Maybe CO2 is going up due to deforestation and the depletion of minerals in the soils making plant growth suboptimal. Nothing to do with human activity to any great degree and it is not the end all be all cause of ice ages but it may be a contributing factor. I still think there is something to the sun spot and milankovich cycles being a causitive factor.
    No doubt we have an excelent opertunity to study the onset of an ice age in our time.
