Global Warming/Climate Change Hack Al Gore Tries To Sell Global Warming Scam At U.N. Event Using Nuclear Bomb Explosion Sound Effect (Video)Topics: Climategate
This man, and others like him (Barack Obama, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, among other similar-thinking Democrats) needs serious help ... there should come a point at which the Global Warming/Climate Change/Climate Disruption/Etc. cult is recognized for what it indeed is ... a cult and a hoax for political and financial gain.
Even top climate scientists have admitted that their global warming forecasts are wrong, yet Al Gore just keeps on keeping on the same old worn out scam.
On the other hand, one has to give some credit chatzpah to a man who has the balls to stand up at the UN and tout climate models that are now reported to have been 95% wrong.
For the record, I am not a global warming believer. And like Charles Krauthammer, neither am I a global warming denier. While one can't seriously believe that it's good for humanity to be spewing tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere a seriously-thinking person can't really believe that those scientists and politicians who pretend to know exactly what this will cause in 20, 30 or 50 years from now are anything other than propagandists.
As Krauthammer has aptly noted:
"The debate is settled," asserted propagandist in chief Barack Obama in his latest State of the Union address. "Climate change is a fact." Really? There is nothing more anti-scientific than the very idea that science is settled, static, impervious to challenge. Take a non-climate example. It was long assumed that mammograms help reduce breast cancer deaths. This fact was so settled that Obamacare requires every insurance plan to offer mammograms (for free, no less) or be subject to termination.Much more, well worth reading, here...
Now we learn from a massive randomized study -- 90,000 women followed for 25 years -- that mammograms may have no effect on breast cancer deaths. Indeed, one out of five of those diagnosed by mammogram receives unnecessary radiation, chemo or surgery.
So much for settledness. And climate is less well understood than breast cancer. If climate science is settled, why do its predictions keep changing? And how is it that the great physicist Freeman Dyson, who did some climate research in the late 1970s, thinks today's climate-change Cassandras are hopelessly mistaken?
They deal with the fluid dynamics of the atmosphere and oceans, argues Dyson, ignoring the effect of biology, i.e., vegetation and topsoil. Further, their predictions rest on models they fall in love with: "You sit in front of a computer screen for 10 years and you start to think of your model as being real." Not surprisingly, these models have been "consistently and spectacularly wrong" in their predictions, write atmospheric scientists Richard McNider and John Christy -- and always, amazingly, in the same direction.
Settled? Even Britain's national weather service concedes there's been no change -- delicately called a "pause" -- in global temperature in 15 years. If even the raw data is recalcitrant, let alone the assumptions and underlying models, how settled is the science?
But even worse than the pretense of settledness is the cynical attribution of any politically convenient natural disaster to climate change, a clever term that allows you to attribute anything -- warming and cooling, drought and flood -- to man's sinful carbon burning.
As Krauthammer has so aptly posited, "If climate science is settled, why do its predictions keep changing?"!
Speaking in regards to Massachusetts' new $50 million climate change proposal, MIT Professor Richard Lindzen, a leading figure in the climate change movement, pointed out the absurdity of blaming every weather event on global warming and climate change.
"The changes that have occurred due to global warning are too small to account for," Lindzen told WBZ-TV. "It has nothing to do with global warming, it has to do with where we live."
Although supporting the theory of man-made global warming, Lindzen admitted that rhetoric from the political class and green movement has been nothing more than over-the-top "catastrophism."
"Even many of the people who are supportive of sounding the global warning alarm, back off from catastrophism," Lindzen said. "It's the politicians and the green movement that like to portray catastrophe."
Even more surprising, Lindzen goes on to point out the government's obvious use of climate change alarmism to push greater state control, even warning over politicians' use of "crony capitalism."
