CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY (UPDATED FOR WINTER 2016-2017)
THE GREAT GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE 1:13:33
by Michael Rivero
"One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It's simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we've been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back." -- Carl Sagan
"The real deniers are people who think our climate was and should remain static and unchanging." -- Paul Driessen and Chris Skates
"Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket." -- Eric Hoffer, The Temper of Our Time

Photos of the March 13 blizzard from my relatives in New England.
Colorado ski resorts close ? too much snow Too much snow has actually made skiing and traveling conditions too dangerous. Due to perilous avalanche concerns, Arapahoe Basin announced they closed all skier services Tuesday at 1 p.m. Meanwhile, Monarch Mountain announced its closure early Tuesday, and Crested Butte ski area was closed Monday.
Deadly icy spell grips much of Europe, including Greek islands Icy temperatures across Europe have left more than 20 people dead and blanketed even the Greek islands and southern Italy in snow. Italy saw ferries and flights cancelled and schools in the south are expected to close on Monday. Turkey has also been badly affected. The Bosphorus was closed to shipping as a heavy snowstorm hit Istanbul. At least 10 people died of cold in Poland. Night temperatures in Russia plunged to minus 30C.
Montana - It's too COLD to ski!

Aleppo: Heavy snow slows evacuations of civilians and rebels Heavy snowfall and rickety vehicles have slowed the evacuation of thousands of civilians and rebel fighters from war-torn eastern Aleppo, the International Committee of the Red Cross said Thursday, as Syrian regime forces stood poised to take control of the key city.
ARTICLE STARTS HERE!
Let me preface this by saying I come from a science background myself, but all too often science gets hijacked and distorted for political or economic gain, or simply makes goofs which are perpetuated by arrogance!
Why should we not just blindly trust science?
Alchemy, for one.
Phlogiston Chemistry, for another.
Prior to the 14th Century Astronomers thought the Earth was the center of the universe, because, well, that's what the church wanted, and spent hundreds of years of scientific research on the theory of Epicycles, trying to reconcile the Earth centered model with the observed motions of the planets. Epicycles hold the record for longest running scientific goof in history!
17th Century doctors thought rubbing chicken dung into your scalp would cure baldness! They also thought leeches sucked disease out of patients.
18th Century Geologists thought the Earth was 6000 years old, because, well, that's what the church wanted!
Prior to the 1950s, scientists thought proteins carried our heredity.
Until the 19th Century, doctors thought infection was caused by bad air, from which we get the term "Malaria."
Scientists claimed cigarettes were good for you up until the 1950s. They even had a machine to pump tobacco smoke into your anus...
... the origin of the phrase "blowing smoke up your a**!"
In 1948, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine went to the discovery of DDT. A few years later it had almost collapsed the food chain.
In 1949, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine went to the discovery of the "therapeutic value" of lobotomy! Patients had their brains butchered by having what was essentially an ice pick shoved up their nose into their brains!
Until 2005, doctors thought ulcers were caused by stress.
National Geographic ran an article in 2015 whining why people don't believe science. But science is not about belief but about facts! And National Geographic should not be questioning why people do not trust science after its own 1999 "Piltdown Chicken" scandal!
Science is not perfect. Science does make mistakes. The beauty of science is supposed to be that they admit it, not use the label of "science" like a modern religious icon to push agendas onto people! Anyone who says the "Science is settled" is not being scientific, they are being propagandistic!
You are witness to one of the greatest frauds perpetrated on the people of planet Earth, to trick them out of their money and into obedience under the guise of the fight against Human-Caused Global Warming (now rebranded "Human Caused Climate Change" to explain away the icicles we were told were not going to happen). The global warming scare was concocted out of outright lies, purchased science, and scare mongering to trick you into being willing to pay carbon taxes to solve a non-existent crisis you were told was all your fault. And, of course, to lull you into accepting the dictates of a global government that needed to save the Earth from you icky-poo human beings.
It was all a lie. Here is how it happened.
1: Climategate: The Mother of All Deceptions
"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary." -- H.L. Mencken (1918)
"Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have."
-- Richard Salent, Former President CBS News.
The 2009 exposures of fraud coming from the Hadley Climate Research Unit, then followed by similar exposures at New Zealand's NWIA, Australia's climate center, NOAA, the Climategate emails, and now Climategate 2.0, have only confirmed the doubts arising from the obviously NON-scientific methods employed by the Anthropogenic Global Warming supporters, hereinafter called the "Global Warming Cult". I call them a cult because of the abandonment of scientific method by many of the acolytes, together with a recent British Court decision that declared belief in Global Warming was accorded the status of a religion.
Then there was the admission by NOAA that the temperature data provided by their NOAA-16 satellite, on which the claims for a warming planet were based, were in error. A problem with the satellite meant it was reporting temperatures from 10 to 15 degrees hotter than they actually were. NOAA erased the data from their servers, but global warming propagandists still cite it in their claims of a warming world! It is interesting to note that NOAA did not detect the problem themselves, but only checked the data when outside observers pointed out that it was not consistent with ground observations.
Human Caused Global Warming is not being researched; it is being promoted. Al Gore and his fellow investors have spent over a hundred million dollars in creating a crisis of human-caused global warming out of (quite literally) thin air. They are not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. They expect to reap billions in profits from the trading of Carbon Credits, a "license to pollute" available for a price and subject to brokerage fees. One of the people Al Gore relied on to create this scheme was Ken Lay, late of ENRON, aka the Crooked "E". Al Gore plans to use Carbon Dioxide to do to the world what Ken Lay did to California using electricity; loot the people!
Coincident with the desire to reap huge profits from the general population of the world is the agenda to promote a global government. Currently, the push for a global government rests on three pillars, Global Warming is one of them, leading to a surrendering of national sovereignty attempted at the Copenhagen Conference December 7th, 2009 (but temporarily delayed when the conference was hit with a major blizzard). The other two pillars exploited to create the "need" for a global government are a global swine-flu pandemic, requiring a global health organization, and a global financial crisis, requiring a global bank. The political power behind this push for global government is immense; enough to win Al Gore an Academy Award and a Nobel Peace Prize for his film, "An Inconvenient Truth", despite a court ruling pointing out the numerous provable lies and distortions in it.
To any real objective observer, the methods employed by the Cult are not those of science and research but of salesmanship and propaganda. Scare tactics are well in evidence. To anyone of an age enough to recall previous scare campaigns, the hue and cry for Anthropogenic Global Warming is reminiscent of "Killer Bees" and Y2K scares of yesteryear.
To put it bluntly, Anthropogenic Global Warming is a load of government-sponsored bovine excrement. Its purpose is to trick you out of money and into obedience. And despite the shrill cries of those who insist that government would never conceive or let along execute such a monstrous fraud upon the people, the fact is that Anthropogenic Global Warming has a very long pedigree of deception behind it.
2: Scaring The Public For Fun And Profit"News is what someone wants to suppress. Everything else is advertising".
former NBC news President Rubin Frank
Manufactured rumors of imminent doom have been around as long as religion itself. Predictions that the world is about to come to an end appear at regular intervals throughout the history of humankind, usually followed by demands of money and obedience to avert disaster, or guarantee salvation.
But in the modern age, where fewer and fewer people are blindly religious, doomsayers have had to eschew the trappings of the religious prophet and don the garb of the scientific prognosticator. However, their track record of success in predicting the end of the world had fared no better than that of their clerical brethren!
The Killer Bees
One of the fastest ways to get attention and funding is to announce the imminent doom of the world, then ask for money and/or obedience to study and perhaps "solve" the problem.
|In the 1970s, alarmists warned that a deadly strain of African Killer Bees, accidentally released in Brazil in 1957, were slowly moving towards the United States. The media was filled with lurid stories of vengeance-minded bees slaughtering innocent humans. Movies and TV were filled with killer bee horror films (or comedic skits such as the Killer Bees on Saturday Night Live).|
Starting in 2002, the Killer Bees did in fact arrive in the United States. And contrary to the warnings, they do not attack people at random. Like any other bee, they will act to defend their hives when attacked, but since most Americans are smart enough not to do that with ordinary bees, the prophecies of doom and death never materialized.
As a side note, Apiculturists already knew that the Killer Bee alarm was overblown. Worker bees, killer or otherwise, can only sting once, and usually die afterwards. Only the Queen Bees, which never leave the hive after their mating flight, are able to sting multiple times and survive. So bees, killer or otherwise, do not sting unless they are provoked to the point of a Kamikaze suicide attack on the enemy.
As the 20th century wound down, concern was raised over the fact that most calendar functions inside computers were "hardwired" with the leading "19", and that as of midnight, December 31, 1999, computer date functions would leap backwards one hundred years to Jan 1, 1900.
The media was filled with dire forecasts of passenger jets falling out of the skies, banks unable to operate, a stock market crash, power grid collapse, etc. etc. etc. etc.
Now, while it was true that some dedicated clock and calendar chips did in fact have the hardwired "19" problem, the reality is that most calendar functions were already being handled totally in software and for those that were not, a changeover to software calendars able to deal with the year 2000 was a trivial exercise.
But so convincing were the scaremongers that the public started pulling their money out of banks in anticipation of a crash. As a result, corporations had to spend far more money on demonstrations to convince the public that Y2K was fixed than they spent fixing Y2K. In the end, Y2K turned into a 6 billion dollar enterprise that reaped huge profits for the scaremongerers-turned-software patch and "assurance testing" entrepreneurs.
Y2K came and went, and none of the doom-and-gloom prophecies came to pass.
Global Warming in 1817
"It will without doubt have come to your Lordship's knowledge that a considerable change of climate, inexplicable at present to us, must have taken place in the Circumpolar Regions, by which the severity of the cold that has for centuries past enclosed the seas in the high northern latitudes in an impenetrable barrier of ice has been during the last two years, greatly abated.
(This) affords ample proof that new sources of warmth have been opened and give us leave to hope that the Arctic Seas may at this time be more accessible than they have been for centuries past, and that discoveries may now be made in them not only interesting to the advancement of science but also to the future intercourse of mankind and the commerce of distant nations." President of the Royal Society, London, to the Admiralty, 20th November, 1817
Global Warming in 1922
"The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consul Ifft, at Bergen , Norway . Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared. Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts, which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds." -- AP as published in the Washington Post, November 2, 1922

Then, in 1975, having exhausted the funding to study how global warming was going to destroy the Earth, climatologists did an about-face and started warning of a new coming ice age, requiring new funding to study and of course, more attention from a media totally bored with global warming!
|In the 1970s, NEWSWEEK reported that climatologists were warning that Earth was headed into a new Ice age.|
|In the 1974, BBC repeated the warning that Earth was headed into a new Ice age.
That prophecy didn't work out either.
... a claim echoed by TIME magazine.
|In 1977 The TV series "In Search Of", hosted by Leonard Nimoy, did an episode on the coming Ice age.|
In 1983, Global warming was back, with the EPA already arguing that a carbon tax was the only solution to the problem.
NBC News Digest With Jessica Savitch warned that Catastrophic warming would occur by the 1990s.
If there is a lesson to be learned from all of the above, it is that governments, religious leaders, TV Networks; con men of all persuasions, are constantly warning you of something you really ought to be afraid of, or are possibly the cause of, and in any event are able to avoid/atone for with enough cold hard cash.
3: What is Global Warming?
Let's get something straight; the climate is supposed to change. In 4 1/2 billion years, there has never been a time when the Earth's climate remained exactly the same. Careful study of the geological and paleontological record shows that the climate is always changing; that the Earth is always getting warmer or colder in long hundred thousand year cycles.
At present the earth is far colder than the Cretaceous but far warmer than the ice ages. Given that the Earth has only recently come out of the Little Ice Age, it stands to reason we should be getting warmer. It is this idea that the Earth can or should be locked into a particular configuration that is artificial and unnatural. And who is to decide what the ideal temperature of earth should be? What is ideal for people living at the equator is hardly ideal for people living in the polar regions.
Global warming cultists like to talk about the balance of nature. This is a very romantic term, and sounds worthy of preservation. But there is no balance of nature. Nature is change. Nature is chaos. Nature is one life form going extinct while another evolves into being. Nature has never been in balance; it is in fact careening through time colliding with the landscape.
Is there really a crisis? Would it really be a bad thing if the Earth were getting warmer?
Warmer temperatures mean longer growing seasons. Longer growing seasons mean more food. And at a time when much of the world's population are going hungry, more food is a good thing.
Is carbon dioxide really such a bad thing? Carbon dioxide occurs naturally. The major sources are volcanoes and respiration from animal life on Earth. As carbon dioxide increases plant life which uses carbon dioxide for photosynthesis will grow more abundantly. Again, producing more food. There are even companies which will install carbon dioxide enhancement systems for commercial greenhouses because it has been proven that increased carbon dioxide stimulates plant growth and larger crops.
Is carbon dioxide a greenhouse gas? Yes, it is. But it is not the only one. Water vapor is by far the most abundant greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. Methane is also a greenhouse gas, more potent than carbon dioxide. But you cannot tax water vapor, and methane is produced by termites and deep-sea microbes, which are far too intelligent life forms to submit to carbon taxes, so the global warming cultists have settled on carbon dioxide as the villain because a tiny portion of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, about 3% including breathing, can be traced to human activity (Al Gore claimed humans are responsible for over 50% of atmospheric CO2).
How much atmospheric carbon dioxide comes from human activity? Not including respiration, human contribution to atmospheric carbon dioxide is .28% of the total atmospheric carbon dioxide.
A closer look at the numbers
Now this may not seem like very much, and indeed it isn't. With volcanoes producing far more carbon dioxide than humans, one wonders what all the fuss is about regarding our cars and industry. But the global warming cult has a handy explanation. The global warming cult likes to claim that natural sources of carbon dioxide are already balanced out by natural sinks for carbon dioxide. Volcanoes are offset by trees. The carbon dioxide emitted by sea life is absorbed by seaweed. By claiming that there is no natural counterpart to human caused carbon dioxide the global warming cult tries to claim that .28% of atmospheric greenhouse gases contributed by human activity is upsetting the balance of nature. But as we pointed out before, there is no balance of nature. It is a romantic notion, but simply not reality. Experiments with enhanced CO2 in greenhouses confirms that as CO2 levels rise, plants will grow larger, absorb more CO2, driving levels back down again.
4: The Global Warming Fraud
So how do we know we are dealing with a fraud? As noted above, climate change is something that is supposed to happen. The world is always getting warmer or colder. The promotion of a change in the climate as a threat to humankind requiring the paying of taxes and submission to authority is a manufactured construct.
How do we know an agenda is involved? Simple. If the global warming alarmists were really only interested in the welfare of the Earth, one would expect them to be delirious with joy that the threat of anthropogenic global warming doesn't really exist after all. But quite to the contrary, those whose paychecks are dependent on the global warming industry are in a total panic to reassure us that, yes, there is a real danger, and it is all our fault!
Another reason we know Anthropocentric Global Warming is a hoax is that Scientific Method is supposed to allow for others to double-check the work leading to the theory. In other words, starting with the same data and applying the same methods, I should get the same results. But in the case of Anthropocentric Global Warming, this is impossible. The Hadley CRU, in response to Freedom of Information Requests for the raw data on which they based their dire predictions of doom, first stalled, then admitted they had destroyed the raw data! We mere mortals are expected to simply take their word their conclusions are accurate. I have to wonder with all the tens of millions of dollars in funding CRU enjoyed, why they could not purchase an extra hard drive to save that raw data!
In ancient times rulers ruled by whatever lie would convince the people that they needed to be ruled. One very common dodge was rule by divine right. I am your ruler because God said so. But as mankind has evolved and become more sophisticated, and understands that the idea of God is more a metaphor than reality, rulers intent on using deception to rule their people have had to come up with more convincing myths. Obey me and I will save you from the Communists. Obey me and I'll save you from the terrorists. Obey me and I will save you from global warming. And so forth...
So the push to sell global government on the basis of human caused global warming is just another variation on the theme of I am the ruler because the gods hath decreed it so.
Maybe it's time for humans to evolve past this latest deception.
As for the actual evidence calling into question the claims of human caused global warming, we can start with the very small percentage of atmospheric carbon dioxide actually created by human industry. The attempt by the global warming cult to claim that natural carbon dioxide is not a problem because nature balances it out, but human caused carbon dioxide is a threat, betrays the agenda of of taking something that occurs naturally and focusing the blame for it onto humans in order to guilt them out of money and obedience.
Temperature monitor next to incinerator
|We have previously documented that temperature sensors used to generate the data that supports the claim of human caused global warming have been placed in the outflow of building air conditioners and in one notable instance right next to a trash incinerator. Clearly given that these are all sources of heat, the readings from these temperature sensors cannot be used to assume that we are measuring the temperature of anything other than air-conditioning outflow and the incineration of trash.|
Coming from a science background myself (former NASA), I value the scientific method for discerning the truth. But I also understand that individual scientists are just as corruptible as individual politicians and clergy. Just as the witch-hunters in the middle-ages who were paid to find witches saw witches everywhere they looked, so too do scientists paid to find global warming see warming everywhere they look.
"Politically correct climate change orthodoxy has completely destroyed our ability to think rationally about the environment." -- Richard Tol
This has led to massive fraud on the part of what I call the "Carbonazis", from placing temperature measuring stations next to trash incinerators to the emails and computer codes from Hadley CRU that proved intentional deception to "Hide the decline." This latest IPCC report continues that fraud.
BBC report on the computer codes leaked from Hadley CRU.
Here is another fraud. On May 4th, 2014, a record high temperature was reported in Wichita, Kansas.
Here is a photo of the weather reporting station.
Now, let's pull back for the wide view to see exactly where this record high temperature occured.
Here you see the part of the story you were not told. This particular weather station that captured a record high temperature is located in the middle of the Wichita airport, surrounded by passenger jets burning tons of kerosene and belching out hot exhaust gases from their engines, all day long.
Think it might be a bit warmer there than the rest of the world?
The United Nations IPCC released their 2013 report reasserting that global warming is real and that they are 95% certain humans are to blame. The preliminary report that was leaked admits there has been no warming at all for the last 15 years, but that climate scientists were being ordered not to reveal that fact. Der Spiegel reported that governments were pressuring the IPCC to delete the absence of warming from their report which is what appears to have happened with that report and with the more recent (and unsubstantiated) claims by both NASA and NOAA that human-caused global warming is continuing without any interruptions.
Now, I don't know if the Carbonazis really view the general public as that gullible and that stupid, or they are simply reinforcing this particular deception to protect all the other deceptions, but that it IS a deception is inescapable.
One would think that if stopping global warming were the real agenda, the governments and institutions who had signed on to the global warming screed would proclaim the data as proof of success in dealing with the problem, declare victory, and move onto other projects. But the real agenda all along has been to trick the public into buying carbon credits (from which Al Gore profits handsomely) and carbon taxes (which Obama is pushing for now that Obamacare has cratered and that expected tax windfall has evaporated), which is why the failure of the real world to match the draconian predictions of the global warming cult is being concealed from the public. And that alone proves the global warming issue is politics, not science.
The foreign media has reported on NASA and NOAA exposed for intentional manipulation of temperature datam, including the removal of sensors from colder areas and the artificial inclusion and emphasis on warmer data often from wholly inappropriate remote regions.
It has been documented and ruled in a British court of law that Al Gore's film and inconvenient truth contained numerous factual errors. In one notable case, a film sequence showing the destruction of the polar caps, turned out to be a fake; a computer-generated sequence from the science-fiction movie "The Day After Tomorrow." (By coincidence I had worked on that film and had several "intense" discussions with the producers regarding the many scientific inaccuracies shown in the movie.)
Much of the sensationalist media coverage of the issue of human-caused global warming has been exposed as a fraud. A story which claimed Polar Bears were drowning because of global warming was exposed as a fraud in which pictures of summer melt were presented as mid-winter scenes, along with the ludicrous claim that polar bears could not swim to shore to save their own lives.
Then there was the recent video-taped admission by the head of Greenpeace Gerd Leipold that the claim he made on July 15, 2010 that Greenland would lose its ice in 20 years was merely a propaganda hoax!
The actual ice core data from Greenland shows not only that the ice has survived much warmer periods without melting, but also that 9,099 out of the last 10,500 years were warmer than 2010!
The major problem that the global warming cultists have faced is that the Earth has actually been cooling for more than 13 years now. The global warming cultists attempted to re-brand by avoiding the term global warming and saying their agenda was to deal with climate change. Not just any climate change of course but sudden climate change, again the fault of humans, again requiring taxes and obedience to a global authority to solve. But re-branding as the climate change cult did not erase the fact that the predictions for a warming globe were simply not panning out. It was at this point that institutions dependent on funding to study human caused global warming began to adjust their data in order to, as CRU put it, "conceal the decline". Otherwise, trust in the climate scientists was going to be undermined by the fact that they had obviously totally blown which way the temperatures of earth were going, predicting that they were going up when in fact they were demonstrably in decline.
IPCC predictions in yellow/orange, real world in blue/green
Blue line is the raw data. The red line is the "value added" data the IPCC is using.
In one of the CRU emails leaked by a whistle blower, Dr. Phil Jones, head of the CRU (until forced to step down) openly admits the Earth is getting cooler!
"This is from an Australian at BMRC (not Neville Nicholls). It began from the attached article. What an idiot. The scientific community would come down on me in no uncertain terms if I said the world had cooled from 1998. OK it has but it is only 7 years of data..."
Clearly from the above Dr. Phil Jones is well aware that the Earth has been cooling for 7 (now 14) years and is clearly biased against allowing that information to be made public. Ultimately, Phil Jones did admit on the record that there has been no warming since 1995.
In the end, the most obvious evidence that the global warming cultists got it wrong, is to look out your doors and windows this winter. Snow has come early to much of the Northern Hemisphere this winter. Ski resorts have opened early, and it looks to be a very hard winter. On December 11th, 2009, 50% of the United States was under snow. On the same date the previous year, only 29% of the United States was under snow. The same global warming cultists who would point to temperature extremes 10 years ago as proof of their claims, now insist that early snows and frosts and ice should not be construed as evidence of global cooling. Clearly there is a bias at work here.
5: What is Really at Stake Here?
As I mentioned in the previous section, politicians seek to gain wealth and power and authority by taking something that occurs naturally, transforming it and promoting it as a crisis, and then selling the population a solution in exchange for higher taxes and increased authority over their lives.
Al Gore and his investors have created a crisis called human caused global warming. They have created a product, literally out of thin air, called the carbon credit. This is essentially a license to pollute. And as experience in Europe has already shown, polluters will simply buy the license, and pass the cost on to consumers. The pollution will continue, has continued; the only real change is that goods and services cost more than they did before.
These so-called carbon credits will be bought from those who have too many, and resold to those who need more. This will require a brokerage, of which the first one is owned by Al Gore and his investors, who stand to make billions of dollars from the trading of carbon credits. This is not unlike the manner in which Enron made billions of dollars off of the people of California by trading imbalances in electricity. It is not a coincidence that Enron's Ken Lay assisted Al Gore in setting up the structure for the trading of carbon credits. Al Gore is doing with carbon dioxide to the world what Ken lay did to California with electricity.
There is a huge amount of money at stake on convincing the people of the world that the Earth is getting warmer, that it is all their fault, and atonement is attained by submitting to carbon taxation.
Those people still supporting AGW (anthropogenic global warming) are dependent on funding to support their current positions. That funding is in turn dependent in the continuation of faith that AGW (anthropogenic global warming) is correct. After all, when Galileo proved that the Earth Orbited the Sun, funding for continued research into epicycles vanished abruptly, along with tenures and the value of every degree issued in the field of Epicycles.
The same applies here. With precious rare exception, every academic whose degree and funding is based on AGW is looking at a stark unemployment picture. In their minds, they are not fighting for scientific truth; they are fighting for their livelihood, and the proof is very simple. If their primary concern was really the long term welfare of planet Earth, one would think the Global Warming Cult would be delighted to find out there really is no danger after all. But, as is clearly evident, the goal is to support the orthodoxy even against the revelation that their core scientific foundation is based on a fraud.
Quite a few people, including President Obama, are financially invested in the Global Carbon Credit scheme, in which licenses are issued to pollute, with the surplus units bought and sold through brokerages. Al Gore and his fellow investors have already spent $150 million to "sell" anthropogenic global warming. They will not walk away from that investment easily.
Beyond the researchers whose degrees and funding are dependent on the continuation of a perceived public threat, the media outlets and government officials who signed onto this campaign are now realizing that they have wagered their entire credibility on AGW (anthropogenic global warming) at a time when their credibility was already strained from Saddam's "nookular" bombs, the economy, 9-11, Obamacare, etc. etc. etc. Climategate could well be the final nail in the coffin of the public's trust of corporate media and government.
Over and above the financial incentive, there is another agenda at work. There has been a push forward for the emergence of a global government for many years now. The plan to sell this new global oligarchy to the people the world rests on three pillars. The first pillar is human caused global warming, requiring submission to a global environmental authority. The second pillar was the global swine flu pandemic, requiring submission to a global health authority. The third pillar was the global financial crisis, requiring submission to a global banking authority. All three pillars are in serious trouble. If the pillar of human caused global warming collapses, no doubt it will pull the other two down with it.
Clearly there's a tremendous amount of political and financial power behind the selling of anthropogenic global warming to the people of the world. It is this political power which was able to provide Al Gore with an Academy award for his documentary film "An Inconvenient Truth" even though that film has already been exposed as containing multiple factual errors. It was this same political power which obtained for Al Gore a Nobel peace prize again for his documentary film and again awarded even though the deceptions had been exposed in a British court of law.
So much money and political power has been invested in the myth of human caused global warming that if human caused global warming becomes exposed to the general population as a lie and a hoax, many well-known institutions of government and media will likely collapse from the scandal. The establishment is literally fighting for its life. And we should expect them to take any and all desperation measures to prolong and preserve their power and prestige and privilege.
6: This is a Street Brawl for Truth and Freedom
It is clear that government, the media, corporatized science, have quite literally bet the farm on selling the illusion of human caused global warming as justification for global taxes and global government. In order to bring about global government simultaneous with creating the illusion of a need they have to destroy the credibility of the regional governments and we have seen a great deal of this lately. Now the oligarchs face an awkward choice. They have set the stage for a collapse of the national governments, but the global government they wish to install in its place may be collapsing right along with the myth of global warning.
Various governments and the media are so heavily invested in selling the illusion of human caused global warming, that if that hoax is exposed, if the public becomes aware of the monstrous fraud involved, those institutions of government and media could very well be destroyed and by their own hands.
Already we are seeing the organizers and perpetrators of this fraud trying to limit the damage from this exposure in several ways. The media is already hard at work attempting to dump the blame and scandal solely on the climate scientists, who after all were only doing what they were paid to do. This is not to say the scientists are not guilty. Quite the contrary, they deserve to be pilloried publicly and humiliated for their betrayal of the public trust and the scientific method. To say that their careers should be ended is an understatement. But in our haste to punish the scientists who assisted in the lies to the world, we must not forget that the scientists were working for somebody; for politicians such as Al Gore, for an agenda called global government, and for those who wanted to get rich by selling an imaginary product called the carbon credit.
Yet another tactic being employed to limit the damage from climategate, is to insist that even though the scientist responsible for the climate warming data have been exposed as holsters that the validity of the data itself must remain above question above reproach. This of course is nonsense. If you hire a contractor to build a home, and discover afterwards that the contractor has a history of using substandard materials and sloppy workmanship, do you continue to believe the home he has built you is solid and durable and safe? Of course not. And yet the global warming cultists are demanding exactly this kind of naïveté from the public at large.
The latest spin is that if one questions the dogma of Anthropocentric Global Warming, then one must be in favor of destroying the Earth. There is no middle ground. Another common propaganda tactic is to accuse those who question the veracity of the Global Warming Cultists is to accuse them of receiving paychecks from oil companies. When one points out that the proponents of Anthropocentric Global Warming are being paid for their work, one gets a "hurrumph" of indignation. It's apparently acceptable for their side of the argument to be well-funded, because in their eyes they are the "good guys." Finally, there is the much-ballyhooed "Precautionary Principle" which states that one should never take any action that might cause harm even if that potential harm cannot be demonstrated or proven. In theory such a prohibition should extend to any actions undertaken in support of the Precautionary Principle itself, but such suggestions get the usual "Hurrumph" of indignation. The cultists are really good at that.
So is climategate a fraud? Is climategate a scientific scandal? No. climategate is first and foremost a political scandal. More than that it is a global political scandal that involves governments, media, institutionalize science, the banks, universities, indeed a vast cross-section of our ruling classes. It is more than a scandal; climategate is a crime against humanity. And this is not an exaggeration. The goal of climategate was to extract money from every human being on planet Earth in exchange for a nonexistent salvation from a nonexistent threat. The goal of climategate was to trick every human being on planet Earth into accepting the yoke of a global oligarchy with no more legitimate claim to power than those who ruled by divine right.
We are at a watershed moment. We may well see a transition to a new and better political structure for the entire world. But it will not be the one that has been designed for us. If nothing else, the ability for government and media to lie to the population of the world on such a vast scale is forever destroyed. Climategate will relegate all of the official stories of the governments of the United States and Great Britain and indeed every government that took part in the human caused global warming hoax to the same level of credibility as Ramses carvings showing his victory over the Hittites (he actually lost that war). It will be seen as an historic joke by future generations.
But we are not there yet. The forces that have enslaved us with deception and fraud and hoax are desperate to hang onto their power and authority. They are busy coming up with new hoaxes and frauds to scare us back into obedience. And the media well aware that they cannot report on the lies of climategate without reporting their own complicity are working hand in glove with government to reassert their ability to control what you think and when you think it.
So, what we, the free people of planet Earth, need to do in the coming years is become the new mainstream media. The TV networks and other corporate media have been handed their marching orders to resell the illusion of human caused climate change in any way shape or form that will convince you to accept new taxes and the loss of your freedoms. The only way the rest of the world is going to find out about climategate is if you tell them. Because the TV and news magazines won't. If it's mentioned at all, it will be to trivialize and dismiss it and assure the world it really doesn't matter. BBC is still reporting climategate as just another computer crime. This is like reporting Watergate as just another burglary!
We have collected together a vast body of evidence calling into question the legitimacy of the claims of human caused global warming. We have collected together a vast body of evidence proving fraud and deception on the part of the global warming cult. Please forward this information to everybody you know. Time is of the essence. Barack Obama as already indicated that he will not be swayed by the exposure of the fraud in the CRU/NWIA data, and fully intends to go to Copenhagen to sign away our national sovereignty as "penance" for our contribution to global warming.
Other observers have commented that the moment president Obama signs that Copenhagen Treaty his credibility as president of the United States will be destroyed. For him to sign away sovereignty of our nation on the basis of a known lie should enrage all Americans and make it clear that the federal government is not working in the interests of the American people any more, but in service to this emerging globalist socialistic empire. Remember; global government is what Hitler wanted. Global Government is what Napoleon wanted. Global Government is what Alexander the Great wanted. Global Government is what the Roman Caesars wanted.
Climategate may well prove to be the final fight in the war between those who would rule us with lies and those who wish to live with truth. Climategate makes it clear that yes, there really are massive conspiracies between government and the media to mislead the general public. You cannot pretend they don't exist; one is right there before you staked out naked on the ground, exposed for all to marvel at! I leave it as an exercise for the reader to decide how many other such deceptions form what we think we know of the world and of history.
There are two paths into the future. Along one lies freedom and truth and prosperity for the people. Along the other lies a socialist dictatorship, born in deception, unable and unwilling to tolerate dissent, and dedicated to robbing the poor to give to the rich.
You need to decide which future you wish to live in.
And you need to decide what you will do about it.

By now you have probably read the hilarious story about the MV Akademic Shokalskiy, a ship filled with global warming researchers funded to "prove" that global warming was melting the Antartic ice shelf. So they sailed down to Antarctica for the start of the summer season in the Southern Hemisphere, because summer is a great time to get lots of photos and videos of melting ice. Or so they thought. In 2014 the Antarctic ice sheet was 26% larger than 2013 and "unusually thick" and the ship got stuck in ice. An icrebreaker was sent to save the global warming researchers; it too became trapped. A third icebraker rescued the global warming researchers by helicopter.
Despite a record-setting sanowstorm in Janurary 2014, the corporate media was still trying to claim that global warming is accelerating!
Obviously, it is reckless to be pushing the global warming agenda in the middle of a harsh winter, but I suspect that with Obamacare having failed to generate the expected flood of new tax revenues that Obama will go back to calling for a carbon tax as soon as the snow starts to melt, and is desperate to keep the public from thinking about how cold the winter of 2013-2014 was and how much colder the winter of 2014-2015 is likely to be.
12/16/2013: Snow falls on camels!

I do not care how many scientists traded their honor for global warming funding. Science is not a democracy where the majority rules. In 1633, virtually every scientist was in agreement that Galileo was wrong when he concluded that the Earth moved around the sun. Motivated by peer pressure, the church, and fear of losing their jobs, all those scientists went along with the desired agenda, and history eventually showed they were all, down to the last man, flat-out wrong.
Scientists need funding, and scientists know that if they say, "I found this phenomenon, but it doesn't really seem to do anything" that there will be little funding and no media attention. But if they say, "I found this phenomenon, and it's the END OF THE @#$%ING WORLD!!!!!!!!", media attention will skyrocket, followed by more funding to study the problem. From this simple economic mechanism we get fed stories about killer bees, computers freezing up on Y2K, catastrophic global warming in 1817, catastrophic global warming in 1922, catastrophic global warming in 1947, a coming ice age in 1975...
... and back to catastrophic global warming in the 2000s.
On March 30, 2000, the UK Independent reported that "Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past." UPDATE: As of October 1, 2015, the UK Independent pulled this page from their website.
Back in 2007, the Canadian reported that "Over 4.5 Billion people could die from Global Warming-related causes by 2012"
It is now 2015, and we are all still here (except for the people who froze to death last winter).
Click for larger image Another "Snow will be a thing of the past" epic fail, this one from the New York Times in 2012!
Since Al Gore started this nonsense, we have had 17 years of provable cooling. So NASA, NOAA, HCRU, IPCC, etc. etc. etc. can scream global warming all they want, to justify the theft from the people under the rubric of "saving the world", but the public will simply look out their doors and windows in the coming months and realize that human-caused global warming is no more real than Saddam's nuclear weapons or Assad's Sarin gas.
Scientists who bet their reputations on the global warming craze are trying to explain their way out of this mess. Some, unable to admit their fraud, have gone as far as to claim that global warming causes cold weather.
This stands in direct contrast to the claims made by these same scientists back in 2000 that snow would be a thing of the past. Indeed, Al Gore himself repeated the claim that snow would be a thing of the past in 2009! Al Gore also predicted that summer of 2014 would see an Arctic entirely free of ice. In fact this summer there was more ice in the Arctic than previous years.

In Chicago, it was so cold last winter that water coming out of the hoses of firefighters froze against the side of the burning building they were trying to save.
NASA confirms that we are seeing a "mini-Maunder" event, a repeat of the "Maunder Minimum"; an observed decrease in solar activity which triggered the "Litte Ice Age" that chilled Europe from the mid 1300s to the mid 1800s..
The reality is that climate on Earth always changes. It was changing before humans were here and will go on changing long after we are gone. The dominant controls over climate are solar activity (as demonstrated when the Maunder Minimum triggered the Little Ice Age), and the shape of the Earth's orbit, which slowly oscillates from circular to more elliptical and back over roughly 100,000 year cycles. When Earth's orbit is circular, Earth is warmer. When the orbit is more elliptical, Earth spends more time further away from the sun at the far end of the ellipse (Kepler's laws of orbital motion) and we get the ice ages. So until the global warming crowd can influence the sun or change the shape of Earth's orbit, they cannot really stop climate change. All they can do is trick the public out of money by screaming about it.
AFTERWORD: About Al Gore
Al Gore claims the temperature of the Earth's interior is "millions of degrees". It is actually only 12,000 degrees.
Al Gore claims to have created the internet. (50 seconds into the video)
Al Gore posed for a photo paddling a canoe. But in order to make sure the canoe would float for the photo-op, 4 billion gallons of water was released from a New Hampshire dam and allowed to escape down the creek. New Hampshire was in the middle of a record drought at the time.
10 mins to Expose the Global Warming Scam
Fox RIPS Global Warming Advocate! 1000's of Emails - Documents Reveal FRAUD
The academic at the centre of the ?Climategate' affair, whose raw data is crucial to the theory of climate change, has admitted that he has trouble ?keeping track' of the information.
Colleagues say that the reason Professor Phil Jones has refused Freedom of Information requests is that he may have actually lost the relevant papers.
Professor Jones told the BBC yesterday there was truth in the observations of colleagues that he lacked organisational skills, that his office was swamped with piles of paper and that his record keeping is ?not as good as it should be'.
The data is crucial to the famous ?hockey stick graph' used by climate change advocates to support the theory.
Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now "suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon. "
And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no ?statistically significant' warming.
?NOAA-16' was launched in September 2000, and is currently operational, in a sun-synchronous orbit, 849 km above the Earth, orbiting every 102 minutes providing automated data feed of surface temperatures which are fed into climate computer models.
NOAA has reported a succession of record warm temperatures in recent years based on such satellite readings but these may now all be undermined.
World-renowned Canadian climatologist, Dr. Timothy Ball, after casting his expert eye over the shocking findings concluded, ?At best the entire incident indicates gross incompetence, at worst it indicates a deliberate attempt to create a temperature record that suits the political message of the day."
Chart of Earth's Temperature When we open up the scale of a chart of Earth's Temperatureto a much longer period of history, we see that there is nothing at all abnormal about the current climate. We are warmer than the ice ages (one of which we just came out of) but colder than the Cretaceous. And ignoring the effects of the Chixulub Asteroid Impact, life on Earth seems to have survived quite well at far warmer temperatures than we have now.
Chart of Earth's Temperature versus CO2 over Geological time In prehistoric times CO2 levels were much higher than they are today without producing an increase in global temperature.

Quotes from the Carbonazis
"One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole." Ottmar Edenhofer -- Co-chair of the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015.
Warming fears are the "worst scientific scandal in the history...When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists." - UN IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning PhD environmental physical chemist.
"It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don't buy into anthropogenic global warming." - U.S Government Atmospheric Scientist Stanley B. Goldenberg of the Hurricane Research Division of NOAA.
"I am a skeptic...Global warming has become a new religion." - Nobel Prize Winner for Physics, Ivar Giaever.
"The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself." - Club of Rome, premier environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations
"We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public's imagination... So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts... Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest." - Prof. Stephen Schneider, Stanford Professor of Climatology, lead author of many IPCC reports
"We've got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy." - Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation
"No matter if the science of global warming is all phony... climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world." - Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of the Environment
"The data doesn't matter. We're not basing our recommendations on the data. We're basing them on the climate models." - Prof. Chris Folland, Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research
"The models are convenient fictions that provide something very useful." - Dr David Frame, climate modeler, Oxford University
"I believe it is appropriate to have an 'over-representation' of the facts on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience." - Al Gore, Climate Change activist
"Humanity is sitting on a time bomb. If the vast majority of the world's scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet's climate system into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced - a catastrophe of our own making." - Al Gore, An Inconvenient Truth, 2006
"It doesn't matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true." - Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace
"The only way to get our society to truly change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe." - emeritus professor Daniel Botkin
"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis..." - David Rockefeller, Club of Rome executive member
"By the end of this century climate change will reduce the human population to a few breeding pairs surviving near the Arctic." - Sir James Lovelock, Revenge of Gaia
"Climate Change will result in a catastrophic global sea level rise of seven meters. That's bye-bye most of Bangladesh, Netherlands, Florida and would make London the new Atlantis." - Greenpeace International
"This planet is on course for a catastrophe. The existence of Life itself is at stake." - Dr Tim Flannery, Principal Research Scientist
"Democracy is not a panacea. It cannot organize everything and it is unaware of its own limits. These facts must be faced squarely. Sacrilegious though this may sound, democracy is no longer well suited for the tasks ahead. The complexity and the technical nature of many of today's problems do not always allow elected representatives to make competent decisions at the right time." - Club of Rome, The First Global Revolution
"The emerging 'environmentalization' of our civilization and the need for vigorous action in the interest of the entire global community will inevitably have multiple political consequences. Perhaps the most important of them will be a gradual change in the status of the United Nations. Inevitably, it must assume some aspects of a world government." - Mikhail Gorbachev, State of the World Forum
"I envisage the principles of the Earth Charter to be a new form of the ten commandments. They lay the foundation for a sustainable global earth community." - Mikhail Gorbachev, co-author of The Earth Charter
"In my view, after fifty years of service in the United Nations system, I perceive the utmost urgency and absolute necessity for proper Earth government. There is no shadow of a doubt that the present political and economic systems are no longer appropriate and will lead to the end of life evolution on this planet. We must therefore absolutely and urgently look for new ways." - Dr Robert Muller, UN Assistant Secretary General
"Nations are in effect ceding portions of their sovereignty to the international community and beginning to create a new system of international environmental governance as a means of solving otherwise unmanageable crises." - Lester Brown, WorldWatch Institute
"Regionalism must precede globalism. We foresee a seamless system of governance from local communities, individual states, regional unions and up through to the United Nations itself." - UN Commission on Global Governance
"Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level." - UN Agenda 21
"The goal now is a socialist, redistributionist society, which is nature's proper steward and society's only hope." - David Brower, founder of Friends of the Earth
"If we don't overthrow capitalism, we don't have a chance of saving the world ecologically. I think it is possible to have an ecologically sound society under socialism. I don't think it is possible under capitalism" - Judi Bari, principal organiser of Earth First!
"Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsiblity to bring that about?" - Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Programme
"A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation." - Paul Ehrlich, Professor of Population Studies
"The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can't let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are." - Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund
"Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control." - Professor Maurice King
"We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land." - David Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!
(My comment: What do you plan to do with all those humans already living there?)
"Complex technology of any sort is an assault on human dignity. It would be little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy, because of what we might do with it." - Amory Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute
"The prospect of cheap fusion energy is the worst thing that could happen to the planet." - Jeremy Rifkin, Greenhouse Crisis Foundation
"Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun." - Prof Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University
"Our insatiable drive to rummage deep beneath the surface of the earth is a willful expansion of our dysfunctional civilization into Nature." - Al Gore, Earth in the Balance
"The big threat to the planet is people: there are too many, doing too well economically and burning too much oil." -- Sir James Lovelock, BBC Interview
"My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it's full complement of species, returning throughout the world." -Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!
(I guess that answers my above question what they plan to do with us mere mortals!)
"Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class - involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, air-conditioning, and suburban housing - are not sustainable." - Maurice Strong, Rio Earth Summit

"The Earth has cancer and the cancer is Man." - Club of Rome, Mankind at the Turning Point
"A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions.'' - Prof Paul Ehrlich, The Population Bomb
"I don't claim to have any special interest in natural history, but as a boy I was made aware of the annual fluctuations in the number of game animals and the need to adjust the cull to the size of the surplus population." - Prince Philip, preface of Down to Earth
The above few quotes make it clear that the elites' idea of an ideal world is one they have all to themselves!
"A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at the present North American material standard of living would be 1 billion. At the more frugal European standard of living, 2 to 3 billion would be possible." - United Nations, Global Biodiversity Assessment
"A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal." - Ted Turner, founder of CNN and major UN donor
"... the resultant ideal sustainable population is hence more than 500 million but less than one billion." - Club of Rome, Goals for Mankind
"One America burdens the earth much more than twenty Bangladeshes. This is a terrible thing to say. In order to stabilize world population,we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it's just as bad not to say it." - Jacques Cousteau, UNESCO Courier
"If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels." - Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, patron of the World Wildlife Fund

"The extinction of the human species may not only be inevitable but a good thing." - Christopher Manes, Earth First!
"The extinction of Homo Sapiens would mean survival for millions, if not billions, of Earth-dwelling species. Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on Earth - social and environmental." - Ingrid Newkirk, former President of PETA
"Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing." - David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club
"The fate of mankind, as well as of religion, depends upon the emergence of a new faith in the future. Armed with such a faith, we might find it possible to resanctify the earth." - Al Gore, Earth in the Balance

In June 2007, Tim Flannery warned Brisbane that its ?water supplies are so low they need desalinated water urgently, possibly in as little as 18 months". Last month Brisbane recorded the wettest December in 150 years.
But of course, who could forget the Australian BOM which predicted that "The national outlook for total rainfall over spring (September to November), is neutral for most of the country" which was promptly followed by record downfalls and widespread floods with some areas getting 400% of the average rainfall. The only part of the country the BOM predicted ?a wetter than normal spring" was in South West WA (which recorded one of its driest springs since measurements began). -- The Australian Bureau of Meteorology, Aug 2010
Within a few years "children just aren't going to know what snow is." Snowfall will be "a very rare and exciting event." Dr. David Viner, senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, interviewed by the UK Independent, March 20, 2000.
"[By] 1995, the greenhouse effect would be desolating the heartlands of North America and Eurasia with horrific drought, causing crop failures and food riots...[By 1996] The Platte River of Nebraska would be dry, while a continent-wide black blizzard of prairie topsoil will stop traffic on interstates, strip paint from houses and shut down computers." Michael Oppenheimer, published in "Dead Heat," St. Martin's Press, 1990.
