Readers of this blog should not be surprised that Global Warming is nothing more than a hoax. The lack of any real scienceinvolved in Global Warming was obvious by its absence. The aggressive silencing of dissenting views was equally persuasive. But the final nail in the coffin was the clear flow of money to certain Global Warming advocates: Al Gore, Goldman Sachs, et. al. Global Warming was, is, and always will be, a hoax.
For a chronological list of articles just this year alone on the Global Warming fraud can be found here.
For those that were duped by the media uproar of Global Warming over the last 15+ years, do not beat yourself up too badly. The take away from all this is something of great value: Always, always, always, always consider the source of what you read, hear or see. Everyone has motive, everything is opinion.
Let me reveal my motivation. I do not want to pay higher taxes, or see jobs flow out of this country to India or China just because Al Gore says so. I do not wish to watch my beloved country sink into an under-developing morass, trading our ingenuity and pioneering spirit for the approval of other nations.
And what about the motivations of the mainstream media? Strangely, they are eerily silent after Professor Phil Jones’ admission that there is no truth to Global Warming, especially given how strident they have been on this issue year after year. But is that really so strange? I don’t think so. Not when you consider that media stations like NBC and its sister stations are owned by GE. GE stands to make billions off of you and your fear of Global Warming. Michael Walsh has a great article on this media silence. Remember, this is the same mainstream media that blamed the blizzard that buried the east coast last week on Global Warming. In fact, they also blamed a lack of snow for the Olympics in Vancouver on Global Warming too. As the Heritage Foundation article put it, “Global Warming – Is There Anything It Can’t Do?”
If confronted by a Global Warming follower, you might hear that somehow the onus is on you to prove that Global Warming is false. They’re sort of right, but not really. Science works by putting forth a theory and then working hard to find evidence that disproves your own theory. So the onus is actually on them, the Global Warming advocates, to seek evidence to the contrary; this is the point of the white swans thought exercise (i.e., if all swans are believed to be white, finding one black swan disproves the theory). And then remind the Global Warming adherents that every time someone has compiled hard evidence that disproves Global Warming, they have been aggressively silenced or ignored by the mainstream media. And also remind them of Al Gore’s statements on this issue: “The debate is over.” That is not how science works.
Finally, do your own research. With today’s access to information, this is relatively simple with just a few minutes of time. Read both sides of any issue and always follow the money.
