Amazing Science of Global Warming Politics

Coronado

If you abandon the scientific method, introduce the subjective element into scientific practice, apply your culture and rely on instinct then perhaps – for you – AGW (human-induced global warming) really exists…

It wouldn’t be very scientific to claim humanity is causing the present global cooling trend. The Western mania about global warming also is not ‘scientific.’ Claims that there is a consensus of opinion among scientists about the hypothesis that climate change is human-induced is genuine snake oil: humanity’s impact is local not global, to wit:

The globe has many serious environmental problems. Most of these problems are regional or local in nature, not global. Forced global reductions in human-produced greenhouse gases will not offer much benefit for the globe’s serious regional and local environmental problems. We should, of course, make all reasonable reductions in greenhouse gases to the extent that we do not pay too high an economic price. We need a prosperous economy to have sufficient resources to further adapt and expand energy production. ~Wm Gray

Saying humanity has caused global warming is a p0litical statement: the latest Gallup poll shows that global warming believers are mostly Democrats. While not scientific it is good politics to defame scientists like William Gray who are skeptical of human-induced global warming (the AGW hypothesis) and call them, deniers.

The attacks were ferocious and nasty, which has become a measure of proximity to the truth. ~Dr. Tim Ball

The Left’s political propaganda campaign against deniers, skeptics and unbelievers of AGW has been more than intellectually dishonest. To re-label fear of global warming to fear if ‘climate change’ was deceptive but it also was ineffective: as a political means to raise taxes and control the masses it has been a social engineering failure because everyone knows climate changes whether or not Eurocommunists approve.

Is it really any wonder an insider at CRU (the Climate Research Center) back in 2009 decided to blow the whistle on the global warming alarmists? The CRUgate whistleblower obviously did not feel he was working with real scientists. Honest scientists don’t use fudge-factors to generate politically-correct results that are scientifically baseless.  (See e.g., The Amazing Story Behind The Global Warming Scam Jan 29, 2009)

…one ugly manifestation of absolute certainty in near-theological movements is their approach to dissidents. Dissidents in these absolutist groups are outlawed, condescended to, pressured, bullied, lied about, trashed, slandered, and distorted out of any recognition. (See, : To exact vengeance on individuals whose views you disagree with is dogmatism.)

Can we trust a system that awards PhDs to those who believe their mathematical climate models are reliable providers of accurate, global temperature information 50 to 100 years into the future? Sure, sure it was innovative of Michael Mann to create ‘hockey sticks’ out of white noise but it wasn’t hard. People like Al Gore and the climatists of Western academia have only proven they have no shame.

Ten years ago I simply parroted what the IPCC told us. One day I started checking the facts and data – first I started with a sense of doubt but then I became outraged when I discovered that much of what the IPCC and the media were telling us was sheer nonsense and was not even supported by any scientific facts and measurements. To this day I still feel shame that as a scientist I made presentations of their science without first checking it. ~Klaus Eckert Puls

CO2 was given a bad rap, like coffee, alcohol, chocolate. People know better — remember when the food Nazis said eggs were bad for you? Global warming is the new cholesterol! The time has come for the people to embrace pragmatism and admit humanity needs less government-funded AGW research and a lot more energy.

A reconsideration of what equitable energy access means for human development and the environment is needed. As this paper demonstrates, a massive expansion of energy systems, primarily carried out in the rapidly urbanizing global South, in combination with the rapid acceleration of clean energy innovation, is a more pragmatic, just, and morally acceptable framework for thinking about energy access. The time has come to embrace a high-energy planet. (See, Our High Energy Planet — A Climate Pragmatism Project)

To all the religious fervor of global warming alarmists, add Leftist politics and a pinch of government science and you have the makings of a not so benign despotism.

    Thanks for the exaltations. There can be power in a sentence and hopefully my next post will take that idea to a new level. Happy Easter.

  2. Eric Simpson says:

    Thanks Wagathon for your reply, and I’ll look forward to your next post. Right now I’m going back and reading all your old posts (well, I’m back to March 10th). I realized something, that the brilliance I find in your work is in the impact or insights of the individual sentences and paragraphs, not so much in the grand design of the entire post, though I don’t discount that either. I do wish comments would stay on beyond one week, as now I’m checking out older posts and who knows whether I may have a comment. But, I assume there’s a good reason for the prohibition, maybe technical or administrative.
    Anyway, I have a wordpad file with all kinds of quotes from the warmists and stuff, and I’m reading through your posts and I’m finding many snippets and quotes that I’m pasting over to wordpad for reuse whenever.
    For example:
    “This is the mildest catastrophe ever. What a mellow devastation…”
    It sounds like it could be a movie: “The mildest catastrophe!” And it’s a phrase that I want to reuse myself in my own comments. Because, in reality, it’s just a bunch of hype and puffery. They say that right now we are greatly suffering from “climate change,” but you know what, nothing has changed as far as I can see, things are just fine, if a bit humdrum. If this is a catastrophe, then I’d love to see something a lot worse, by fifty-fold, just for the fun of it.
    “There is nothing wrong with the planet. The planet is fine.” -George Carlin (a quote fished out of wordpad)

    And:
    “The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970′s and 1980′s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now.” -Paul Ehrlich, 1968
    “Western academia has become the Vladimir Putin of science. They believe if us folks only knew and were capable of understanding climate change as they do we’d all be just as alarmed; but, since we don’t get it, academia will take it upon themselves to simply tell us what we must think… for our own good.”
    “For a brief moment Western academia nearly succeeded in driving the price of energy beyond the reach of humanity …but nature snowed on their parade.”

    Hello Eric: Thanks for visiting (comment blocks are the default but only active for a week). Drop by for my next post… probably Monday:

    Hi, Wagathon, I clicked over from your comment at JCurry, but I’ve liked your comments that I’ve seen at wuwt or wherever. And, now I see, you have a very good blog. In fact I referenced and used an excerpt from your previous post (Proof of global warming… alas) at Real Science: http://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/2014/04/18/global-warming-without-the-warming-part/#comment-340691

    A problem is, though, that I wanted to leave a comment at the “proof of global warming” post, but, for the life of me, I couldn’t find any comment box or whatever there. But there is one here, obviously. So? Maybe it’s my system.

    The Pulitzer committee has awarded American journalism’s highest honor to Britain’s The Guardian and to The Washington Post for their ongoing coverage of Snowden’s bombshell revelation of the scope of domestic and international U.S. government spying:

    That is an encouraging indication that the Climategate scandal, and perhaps sixty-eight years (2014 – 1946 = 68 yrs) of deceptive propaganda disguised as consensus science, will also be coming to conclusion too.

  6. bhatmahesht says:

    The climate changes might be natural, but they are to certain extent accelerated by humans too. As the politicians across the world try their best to people in fear or anxious state to get votes, the chances of politicizing global warming are there. The facts mentioned by you supports that. The pollution of the rivers is rampant in India, which is a major issue here than global warming.
