Climate Science – The Abuse Of Science For A Global Political Agenda
Posted by Tory Aardvark
Science is never settled.
Science is never determined by a consensus.
Science is determined by observation, experimentation, and measurement, which as technology and human understanding progresses means that nothing can be taken for granted and, perceived understanding must be continually questioned in the light of new evidence and new emerging scientific methods.
The warmist meme that 97% of climate scientists agree that Anthropogenic Global Warming is real, demonstrates the way these people manipulate data to prove their point, the real truth is that 99.27% of climate scientists do not agree.
The much hyped consensus was actually 75 out 77 cherry picked scientists agreed with a 2 minute online anonymous survey, hence the 97% consensus lie.
Climategate no matter how hard the Greens and ecomentalists try to play it down, did significant damage to the Global Warming scam, although climate scientists were already jumping ship before the Climategate story broke.
It is the best of times, it is the worst of times — for science. Over the past several years, the world has been spectator to an alarming meltdown as one serious scandal after another has publicly exposed many of the world’s most prestigious scientific organizations, institutions, and publications as being captives of rigid ideologues who employ rigged computer models, fraudulent “evidence,” censorship, and intimidation to advance a radical “green” political agenda and to squelch genuine scientific inquiry and debate.
Some of the preeminent scientists involved in promoting global-warming alarmism have been disgraced and discredited, after being caught in flagrante in unethical and illegal activities. Even before the 2009 “Climategate” e-mail scandal, many leading scientists who had earlier been true believers in man-made global warming (anthropogenic global warming, or AGW) had begun jumping ship and joining the AGW skeptic side. Since then, the defections have turned into a veritable flood, making this one of the great untold stories of the major establishment media, which continue to trumpet the alarmist propaganda.
In the past year notable defections from the junk science of AGW have included Fritz Vahrenholt, Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore, the AGW scam took another body blow when just before the Rio+20 summit started James Lovelock, also jumped ship and accused the whole warming alarmist and environmental movement of spouting meaningless Green drivel.
“All agree that climate change is an existential threat to humankind,” stated UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, before the UN’s 2009 Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. “All agree”? “Existential threat”? In this statement, the chief UN bureaucrat took the false “consensus” claim a quantum leap beyond even Al Gore’s lurid assertions. The Gore choir has been declaring for years that there is an overwhelming “consensus” among scientists that catastrophic AGW is real and imminent. According to Ban Ki-moon, we’ve gone beyond consensus to unanimity, and not just among scientists but “all,” presumably meaning every person on Earth agrees that global warming is a dire threat to humanity’s very existence. That, of course, is nonsense.
Ban is talking complete nonsense, if there were a consensus, let alone a unanimity, then a global agreement on limiting emissions would have been agreed at COP15, COP16,COP17 or Rio+20, instead all 4 UN conferences ended in failure, a failure compounded by each successive meeting as the divisions between countries over Agenda21 have grown . Still if you believe that is a consensus then you will have no problem buying into the Great Global Warming Scam.
Aside from the fact that science is not determined by consensus, but by observation, experimentation, and measurement, the truth is that the AGW “consensus” involves a relatively small coterie of climate scientists who have been placed in key gatekeeper positions, enabling them to co-opt the claim of “scientific consensus” on AGW, while squashing dissenting voices and branding all dissenters as “cranks,” “outliers,” or, even, “deniers.” The use of the “denier” label is an especially odious tactic, intentionally aimed at smearing fellow scientists who dissent from AGW theory as equivalent to Holocaust deniers. The Climategate e-mails showed top climate activists at major universities and other institutions conspiring to punish scientists with opposing viewpoints and to prevent them from being published in the scientific literature. It also showed that they were going to great lengths to doctor their evidence to make it “prove” their preordained outcomes. What’s more, they have refused to make their data publicly available to scientific peers for independent review — as genuine scientific procedure demands — and when pressed on the issue, have claimed that the evidence has been “lost.” Some of the top names in climate alarmism — Michael Mann, Phil Jones, Kevin Trenberth, Rajendra Pachauri, Stephan Ramsdorf, James Hansen, Peter Gleick — demonstrated repeatedly that they are engaged in abusing science for a global political agenda.
The lack of Global Warming was worrying junk scientists Kevin Trenberth with his suspect tree ring data, so much so, he emailed Hockey Stick creator Michael E Mann on October 12th 2009:
The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment an it is a travesty that we can’t. The CERES data published in the August BAMS 09 supplement on 2008 shows there should be even more warming: but the data are surely wrong. Our observing system is inadequate.
Internally the climate scientists (sic) were discussing the lack of warming yet publicly, they have continued to spread stories of rising temperatures, temperature records being broken and just about every year has become the hottest year ever. How this can be called credible science beggars belief.
A large number of noted climatologists, paleoclimatologists, meteorologists, atmospheric physicists, geophysicists, oceanographers, geologists, and scientists in virtually every field has been challenging the claims of the UN’s IPCC and vigorously denouncing the politicization of IPCC “science” to promote costly and draconian global policies. Some of the IPCC’s most severe critics are scientists who have served as lead authors and expert reviewers of IPCC reports and have witnessed from the inside the blatant bias and politics masquerading as science. Former and current IPCC experts who have spoken out against the IPCC’s abuse of science include such prominent scientists as:
Dr. Richard Lindzen, MIT climate physicist and Alfred P. Sloan Professor of meteorology, Dept. of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences;
Dr. John Christy, a climatologist of the University of Alabama in Huntsville and NASA;
Dr. Lee C. Gerhard, past director and state geologist with the Kansas Geological Society and a senior scientist emeritus of the University of Kansas;
Dr. Patrick J. Michaels, former Virginia State climatologist, a UN IPCC reviewer, and University of Virginia professor of environmental sciences;
Dr. Vincent Gray, New Zealand chemist and climate researcher;
Dr. Tom V. Segalstad, geologist/geochemist, head of the Geological Museum in Norway;
Dr. John T. Everett, a former National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) senior manager and project manager for the UN Atlas of the Oceans.
Doubtless all of these scientists are in the pay of Big Oil or the Koch Brothers.
Again, the aforementioned experts represent but a small sampling of the distinguished company of international scientific heavyweights who dispute the so-called AGW consensus. This is important to note, as the climate alarmists have gone to great lengths in using the logical fallacy of “argument by authority” to convince us that only right-wing whackos and illiterate wingnuts reject Al Gore’s “the science is settled” trope
Global Warming, Climate Change, whatever they will call it next, is not based on real science it is based on manipulating data to fit the UN scenario, suppressing dissent with smears, lies and a religious zeal and above all continually repeating the same lie on the historical precedent, that if you repeat a lie often enough people will eventually believe it.
The problem is that sometimes you can brainwash yourself, just like Ban Ki-Moon and his unanimity lie.
