“The reason con artists get away with what they get away with is, their victims are ashamed of their own blindness and their own gullibility, and they tend to just quietly go away.” Walter Kirn
Global warming alarmists like to claim that the world is being destroyed by the actions of mankind on our planet. These global warming alarmists then seek to impose massive regulations on individuals, companies and communities to “stop” what they claim are dangerous activities. Lately, the global warming cabal has called for international law to impose the will of the U.N. on communities through “agenda 2030”. Even Pope Francis has joined in the call for international law to replace subsidiarity and local law – effectively ending freedom, representative government and defying basic human rights of self-government. Again, all of this is based on what is essentially a con job that man is causing so-called global warming. Debunking these global warming myths are becoming increasingly easy. The Sunbeam Times offers some of the more obvious ways to debunk global warming propaganda. It is hoped that those who have been conned by the global warming hoax will take a moment to reconsider their positions so as not to cause the rest of us to be hurt by the massive policy implications.
Natural historic fluctuations – Ice ages, mini-ice ages, natural warming.
One of the most powerful ways to debunk the global warming alarmists is to point to the natural history of our planet. The fact is that warming and cooling periods are a natural part of living on earth. There was in fact an ice age on our planet. The last major ice age occurred 3 million years ago and we are still emerging from it to this day!
According to the Utah Geological Survey we are in an “inter-glacial” period and with the most recent period of “glaciation” being about 20,000 years ago. You know, when woolly mammoths roamed the earth and “cave-men” hunted them. Certainly, these humans from 20,000 years ago weren’t driving Ford Explorers and causing global warming – natural warming occurred to melt the glaciers then just as it is happening now. Also of note is the “little ice age” that froze over the Thames in London, creating a reliable place for commerce from the 1500’s to early 1800’s. It is unlikely that the coal-fire electrical plants in Europe were causing the Thames to be frozen in 1677.
Disproven Predictions – Ice Caps, floods and 50 million Refugees, oh my!
By now, several things were supposed to happen due to Global warming. These global warming predictions all failed according to a great summary in the New American. Cities in the Bahamas, China, St. Lucia and all over the world would be emptying creating 50 million “climate refugees” from sea level increases at coastal cities by 2010. Entire nations would be wiped from the planet by 2000. The California valley was to have an inland sea by now. Arctic Ice was to have been gone in the summer – since 2013. Antarctic Ice was to be shrinking. As it turns out, 2013 and 2014 were record years for ice volume on the north and south poles. The ice cap data only goes back to 1979, so using it to predict melting is not scientific and fraught with statistical problems. It is noteworthy that the more valid “moving average” data that once was routinely reported by NASA, now stops at 2005. The better data to look at is that which stretches back hundreds of thousands or even millions of years. As shown above, ice comes and goes naturally. Other failed predictions included loss of snow in Britain in 2000 and 2004. Yet there were record snowfalls there and elsewhere from 2013 onward. The 2001 prediction of loss of snow globally by IPCC (U.N.) failed as well when 2013 had the fourth highest amount on record. President Obama in his second inaugural address in 2012 complained of the devastating impact of droughts, wildfires and raging storms. Yet in 2015, wildfires were at 65 year lows, the scientific journal Nature indicated that droughts were unchanged in 60 year by 2012 and it has been about 3,500 days since a category 3+ storm him the US Mainland with a quiet stretch unseen since about 1990. Further, the temperature predictions are also proven wrong (see below). Oh, yes, one should never forget that the same climate community was predicting a new global ice age in the 70’s.
No global warming in over 18 years.
The global temperature of planet earth has not warmed for 18 years and 7 months. This is despite an increase in the atmospheric C02. This has been dubbed the “pause” by more rational scientists. More importantly, the actual recorded temperatures are well below the warmer temperatures predicted by 33 different climate models.
In other words, garbage in-garbage out. The computer models are being shown to be wrong because they have been programmed and created by people with a vested interest in so-called global warming (scientists seeking grant dollars and politicians seeking tax dollars (and control of people’s freedom).
Science Fraud, Shoddy Computer Models
Mathematician and climate scientist Dr. David Evans of Australia has exposed major flaws in the computer models used to incorrectly predict global warming. He pointed out that “There is no empirical evidence that rising levels of carbon dioxide will raise the temperature of the Earth’s surface as fast as the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) predicts. The predictions are entirely based on models and calculations.” He then went on to debunk the computer models and their assumptions about C02, dismantling the models down to their cores and reconstructing them. The end result is that the models are shown to be too simplistic and don’t account for a host of unknowns to which man is blind. The result is seen above with 33 climate change models foiled by 18 years of actual temperature data. Dr. Evans used his Ph.D in Fourier mathematics to riddle this out for the science world. Naturally the alarmists remain – well – alarmingly unconvinced by actual failures of their models. There are also stories of multiple countries manipulating temperature data to provide the illusion of warming.
Many Unbiased Scientists Disagree with Global Warming
In September of 2015, a list of notable scientists sent a letter to Pope Francis informing him that he has been misled on climate change. They pointed out that the “Pope Francis appears to believe poorly supported global warming theories that have been strongly and repeatedly contradicted by real-world observations.” Many global warming lies are routinely debunked. The blog “Watts up with that” also provides outstanding analysis of global warming alarmism and is run by a climatologist/meterologist. The myth that 97% of the world’s scientists agree with global warming has also been disproven. Many, many scientists disagree with the so-called “consensus” who offer “settled science”. The Heartland Instituted leads the way sponsoring multiple climate change conferences and producing analysis from the Non-governmental International Panel on Climate change (NIPCC). This author is a brain surgeon and research scientists who can attest that science is hardly ever “settled”, especially when it is as incredibly complex as climate change. More importantly, true science is not based on consensus, but cold, hard facts. The facts above prove that the global warming alarm has been one big con job designed to promote other agendas.
The climate alarmists will never admit they were wrong. They will always find excuses to explain away their shoddy predictions, falsified data, and poor models. The climate alarmists have a conflict of interest. First, they rely on the government for millions in research dollars – the same government that is perpetrating the climate change myth for political purposes. Secondly, their reputations are on the line. They have gone out too far on the limb and have even conned themselves into believing their own propaganda. As an informed citizen, you need not get stuck in the ice with them. See the global warming alarmists as the politically and financially motivated propaganda artists they are. Dismiss them and suggest they climb off their marooned ship and cross the ice to rejoin reality.
