People who use the environment as a vehicle for political control have not quite destroyed environmentalism. They are running out of exotic scares; a sign of desperation is the shift to much larger targets, but they pose the problem that people know a little more, and basic questions raise immediate doubts.
Control of the science and content of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Reports was planned from before it was officially formed in 1988. Exposure of manipulation to achieve desired results also began early.
Several factors prove the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and all those pushing global warming or climate change have a political agenda. Most of these factors are driven by the obsession with temperature. It’s a narrowly focused obsession because they effectively ignore the Sun, the main cause of temperature variation.
CO2 (carbon dioxide) is not causing global warming or climate change. I can’t say it more boldly, but it doesn’t seem to matter; the belief persists that CO2 is the cause and therefore a problem.
The political whitewash of Michael Mann, Phil Jones, the Climatic Research Unit (CRU), and the IPCC was stunning. They did not listen to anyone who knew what the accused had done, examined only a few papers carefully selected by the Royal Society, only spoke with the defendants, only considered a fraction of the evidence, and the judges were carefully selected for their prejudice. It bypassed every basic element of jurisprudence.
Manipulation of global temperature data to prop up claims of current global temperatures being the warmest on record due to human production of CO2 continue. Meanwhile, nature ignores the false science.
You can summarize human history in one word – hunger. History books tell us a major human advance was the shift from hunter/gathering society to sedentary agriculture. It makes little sense from a dietary perspective.
Barack Obama was forced to challenge the cardinal rule of stealth politics: Don’t do anything too extreme or too quickly. This prompted him to bypass the legislative process and use executive orders to achieve his revolution. Given more time, he could have relied on gradualism, the process by which people slowly drift into bizarre patterns of behavior.
For an Italian documentary on climate I was asked, “Why do you think we don’t all share the same theory about global warming, particularly so far as concerns its causes?” The simple answer is because there <em>is</em> no general climate theory.
Growth of bureaucracies is a hallmark of totalitarianism. As Mary McCarthy said, “Bureaucracy, the rule of no one, has become the modern form of despotism.” The power behind Barack Obama doesn’t care if he is a one-term President. Total government control is a far more important agenda than any individual political career.
