Climate Change: The Greatest-Ever Conspiracy Against The Taxpayer

manbearpigManBearPig, aka Al GoreClimate change is the biggest scam in the history of the world – a $1.5 trillion-a-year conspiracy against the taxpayer, every cent, penny and centime of which ends in the pockets of the wrong kind of people, none of which goes towards a cause remotely worth funding, all of it a complete and utter waste.

Here is an edited version of a speech on this subject I gave last week to the World Taxpayers’ Associations in Berlin. (excerpts from here)

(snip) So has the planet ever been as warm in human history as it is today?

Well, only in the Minoan warming period and the Roman warming period and the Medieval warming period.

Just those. Right. And presumably back then all that CO2 heavy industry was burning was a real problem? No just kidding…Out of interest how much has the planet warmed in the last few years?

About 0.8 degrees C since 1850.

Right so since the end of the Little Ice Age (so called because it was characterised by unpleasant cold) and years like the infamous Year Without A Summer (1816), the planet has heated by less than the temperature increase you’d get on a spring day between say breakfast and mid-morning coffee time?

Ah yes but the computer models…

Indeed the computer models. Those amazing models which have been predicting catastrophic, runaway warming, when there has been no significant warming since 1998 – so for eighteen years there has been no global warming?

Ah yes but the temperatures of February 2016….

Look I could go on like this forever. I’ve been listening to these increasingly desperate excuses for decades. Perhaps some of you here believe them – if so, there’s a bridge I’d like to sell you…

But it really doesn’t matter whether you believe in global warming or not because here’s the reality:

All that money we’re being to spend on the global warming industry – that $1.5 trillion I mentioned earlier siphoned straight out of taxpayers’ pockets – it isn’t going to make the blindest bit of difference. (end snip)

    Not only is this epic generational [b]theft[/b], it is intended to directly fund a [u]political movement[/u].

    Socialists of every stripe have relied on diversion schemes for revenue since Marx wrote his Manifesto. This however takes diversion to a whole new level.

    With this scam they have created a self-funding hypothesis that is [u]non-falsifiable[/u] – that is, the hypothesis is never rejected but instead constantly modified in an attempt to accommodate the data. Meanwhile, the demands for funding and leftist political reforms only increase.

    Heads they win – tails you lose.

    Brilliant.

    Let’s hope the long term trend of warming continues till we figure out what to do when the next ice returns .
    The promoters of the largest scam in history try to sell the fear that humans are causing the earth to have a fever . No doubt humans have some miniscule effect on everything we do but the simple fact is warming is a very good thing and as everyone knows it has
    been much warmer in the past without
    Hollywood actors flying around in their private jets lecturing everyone about the dark side . (Them )
    The one percenters promoting scary global warming aren’t selling their waterfront mansions and moving up hill.
    People are onto the scam and when the World Tax Payers Association asks James to speak they already know the jig is up .

    Scientists and the Pentagon rank climate change as their number one concern. Do you expect anyone to take you seriously if you call climate science a hoax?

    @BillD

    What scientists ? Name them.
    There are more than 31,000 scientists who say it’s not reliable at best and without foundation.
    And don’t repeat the debunked 97% lie.

    The pentagon ? They do what they’re told.
    That’s why so many senior officers have retired in disgust in the last seven years.

    But of course none of this should make any difference to some one as brilliant as yourself.

    [quote]Scientists and the Pentagon rank climate change as their number one concern. Do you expect anyone to take you seriously if you call climate science a hoax?[/quote] Strangely this so called “science” has yet to make even a single skillful prediction.

    How do YOU expect anyone to take a model based “science” seriously, that failed testing by the Scientific Method 100% of the time?


    [quote] I’m not sure if everyone appreciates just how piquant, complete and utter the failure is here. There are no excuses left. This is as good as it gets for climate modelers in 2013.[/quote]

    Bill D , climate science is no doubt a noble profession but it is time it acknowledged the inexact and climate science toddler it is instead of some oh so scary absolute without question psychic forecast of climate Armageddon .
    Humans no doubt have an impact how ever miniscule , the earth continues to gradually exit the latest ice age ,climate change is constant and over which we have virtually no control .

    The notion that some on board humans are going to adjust CO2 to their liking so as to maintain earth’s temperature within 2 degrees is preposterous and a con .

    Climate scientists are not even close to understanding the vastly overriding influences of natural variables that are in a constant state of flux . We are going to adjust a trace gas helpful to nature so as to set the earth’s thermostat ? Dream on .

    Should we conserve energy and work on
    alternative energy options ..of course but the earth doesn’t have a fever and the faster we get on to the practice of science instead of political science the faster we move forward . Climate models are at best a work in progress because of the massive uncertainty of natural variables which shape the earth’s climate . The latest tactic to change actual readings to more closely resemble failed model predictions is shameful if not criminal .

    The global warming fear industry is a massive con job done for political reasons
    and to pay the scam artists hoping to be making a buck through tax payer subsidies and out right green guilt tax predicated on one gross and misleading lie .

    Politicians say all kinds of incredibly stupid things to get votes or to create a dependency crisis . Hillary proclaiming she is going to shut down fossil fuels for example . Building a wall to separate the USA and Mexico is an equally bizarre statement from the Trumpet .

    Warming if it continues to happen is better than cooling so if we help a bit Yahoo . A global cooling crisis was tried in the 1970’s and some so called scientists were pitching that fable . Where are they now ?

    This is a legitimate question. Someone with a limited technical background or limited exposure to data would trust in what the “scientists” are saying. This is no different than going to a doctor and taking their advice because they are the experts.

    BillD may not have even been aware of the Oregon petition where over 31,000 America scientists have disputed disastrous anthropological climate change. Included in the 31,000 were over 9,000 PhD’s and hundreds of climatologists.

    Not only is the military doing what their commander and chief has ordered, this is also true of NOAA and NASA. It is note worthy that many retired NASA employees are disputing the stand of their agency.

    There is still the question of the universities and other groups that have been studying climate change. I have mentioned this recently but it is worth repeating here. There is quite literally billions of dollars to be had from the federal government and radical environmental groups to study climate change. However, it is well know among researchers that they will have their money cut off if they come to a conclusion that isn’t politically correct. In addition, universities tend to be liberal and there are multiple agendas supported by the climate change movement.

    In going for the money or support of causes these institutions have deviated from the standard scientific process. This is to compare the theory to the data, and when they don’t match, modify the theory. As the last web site in amirlach’s post shows, the data is not matching the theory. The UN IPCC models are running much hotter than real world data. Yet, all of these institutions remain mute on to why the theory hasn’t been modified to fit the data.

    Trying to determine how much the average global temperature is changing using global climate models is a bit like trying to determine how fast a car is going by analyzing loses and what is going on in the combustion chambers. Its theoretically possible but not very accurate, especially if your model is faulty.

    Objective analysis (not funded by government grants or energy companies) reveals that change to the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere (and thus burning fossil fuels) has no significant effect on climate.

    A simple conservation of energy equation, employing the time-integral of sunspot number anomalies and an approximation of the net effect of all ocean cycles achieves a 97% match with measured average global temperatures since before 1900. Including the effects of CO2 improves the match by 0.1%. http://globalclimatedrivers.blogspot.com

    Wow! What utter tripe from yet another completely unqualified hack — James Delingpole. And the usual gang is here to make the manure pile even bigger (31,000 scientists — LOL).

    Anyway, I had to interrupt my service to the Justice League in order to bring you the latest climate record (as I promised).
    “Arctic sea ice appears to have reached a record low wintertime maximum extent for the second year in a row, according to scientists at the NASA-supported National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) and NASA.”
    http://phys.org/news/2016-03-arctic-sea-ice-wintertime.html#jCp

    No doubt I will be back with another climate record before you can finish your latest TV Guide crossword puzzle. Now I must return before Wonder Woman begins “wondering” where I have gone to.

    Up up and away!

    @ 196

    Well, welcome back Drewski.
    Here I thought you were dead.
    But enough of wishful thinking.

    If I were Mr. Delingpole, I’d be honored that jerk like you thinks so little of me.

    Lawyers say that when the facts are on your side, argue the facts. When they are not on your side, argue emotion. Being cynical and name calling is a form of arguing emotion.

    When 196toZero made the statement “make the manure pile even bigger (31,000 scientists — LOL)”, he was being cynical and name calling. This does nothing to reduce that fact that so many scientists don’t buy into man made climate change and indicates he had no facts to argue on this point.

    Perhaps he thought that breaking a record on ice was a fact that countered so many scientists signing the Oregon Petition. However, the Oregon petition says nothing about the earth not getting warmer. It says that man isn’t causing the warming. Almost all scientists acknowledge that the earth has been naturally getting warmer since the end of the mini ice age. If man isn’t causing the warming, then the very expensive agenda to reduce carbon dioxide emissions is not justified.

    Dan Pangburn’s post also shows that carbon dioxide isn’t warming the earth. This is also shown by the fact that 40% of the warming blamed on man was in the time period of 1910 to 1941 when carbon dioxide levels were much lower and fairly stable.

    The last two paragraphs are also cynical. As far as myself, I don’t do cross word puzzles and for much of my adult life didn’t own a TV.

    Yet another reason for the UK to leave the EU ….. in recent years the elderly across the UK have already been dying likewise, luckily this winter was mild…if we stay in the EU we will be heading for starvation as well as hypothermia. If you doubt my comment about starvation go to amazon uk and the link to twilight of abundance in books, click on the book and read the preview of chapter 3 pages 43/44 etc ….. for those too poor due to EU taxes to buy the book you can preview any pages for free …. Mike

    PS just watched this lecture by Nigel Lawson which is the most concise I have found yet …. he is of course, the founder of the GWPF which is another voice for reason on the climte debate. There is also a series of short sharp Brexit for vs against debates on youtube sponsiored by the FT.
    Note Jonathan, my winter fuel payment bought logs for the woodburner as we can’t afford enough gas because of green levies and political ineptitude on fracking!

    Green Europe Lets Its Poor Freeze To Death
    The Devastating Impact Of Germany’s Green Energy Transition

    The latest story on “green energy” here at the German online FOCUS magazine actually shocked me. Europe’s energy policy is, under the bottom line, costing the lives of tens of thousands of citizens – all at the holy altar of “climate protection”. FOCUS reports: In 2014 in Europe there were about 40,000 winter deaths because millions of people were unable to pay for their electric bills – the so-called energy poverty currently impacts about ten percent of all Europeans. In the past 8 years the price of electricity in Europe has climbed by an average of 42 percent. The consequences of energy poverty are profound: tens of thousands of deaths every year, millions losing their power. –Pierre Gosselin, No Tricks Zone, 29 March 2016

    If this is all about science then why does the list of proposed solutions to AGW have nothing whatsoever to do with science?
    Instead [b]it’s essentially the 100-year socioeconomic [u]wish list[/u] of of world socialism![/b]

    Coincidence?

    Sorry, science doesn’t allow me to believe in those kinds of odds.
