Led off with stirring speeches from the Czech President Vaclav Klaus, the acting head of the European Union, and Professor Richard Lindzen of MIT, perhaps the most distinguished climatologist in the world, the message of this gathering was that the scare over global warming has been deliberately stoked up for political reasons and has long since parted company with proper scientific evidence.So, when the real climate change experts discuss climatic trends and discover that there's no man-made climate change whatsoever - the governing elite denounces them as "deniers" and ignores their message. But when politicians and celebrities tell us that greenhouse gas emissions resulting from human activities (less than 0.001% of the atmosphere) cause the temperature to go up, block the sunlight or otherwise responsible for a global climate change - we should accept that as science.
Nothing has more acutely demonstrated this than the reliance of the IPCC on computer models to predict what is going to happen to global temperatures over the next 100 years. On these predictions, that temperatures are likely to rise by up to 5.3C, all their other predictions and recommendations depend, yet nearly 10 years into the 21st century it is already painfully clear that the computer forecasts are going hopelessly astray. Far from rising with CO2, as the models are programmed to predict they should, the satellite-measured temperature curve has flattened out and then dropped. If the present trend were to continue, the world in 2100 would not in fact be hotter but 1.1C cooler than the 1979-1998 average.
Yet the terrifying thing, as President Klaus observed in his magisterial opening address, is that there is no dialogue on these issues. When recently at the World Economic Forum in Davos, he found the minds of his fellow world leaders firmly shut to anything but the fantasies of the scaremongers.
The Global Warming hoax depends on its success on only one thing ... fear. No matter the science, no matter the proof, no matter how right or wrong ... there will be no War on CO2 and a massive transfer to wealth to government institutions if the public at large doesn't buy into the hoax.According to the Investor's Business Daily the tide is turning and there are more people willing to consider scientific facts rather just go with the panicking crowd. Having two coldest winters in a row also helps the people realize that what is being promoted as an "inconvenient truth" could in fact be nothing but a profitable lie.
As a result, green organizations and prophets of doom like Al Gore make no hesitation in departing from truth in their quest to scare carbon taxes out of the pockets of gullible citizens. The battle is not one of science, but one between fear and logic. So far, fear has been winning ... but possibly not for long.
