Notes on the Topic of Global Warming (Page 1 of 3)

To Page 2, To Page 3

 

For those who care about truth, and the integrity of science!

This is a very important topic because many people, including me, believe that on the topic of global warming, we are witnessing both massive scientific fraud (诈骗) and large-scale, organized public brainwashing!

 Introduction to these notes (for IELTS students)

Although it is important to have at least some knowledge of this topic for the IELTS test because it is a commonly used topic, it does not matter what you believe to be true – you can still get a good score in the test no matter what you believe. I have gone into some detail on this topic simply because I personally feel strongly about it. (People tend to have strong feelings when they realize they have been deceived.)

IELTS students should understand that the English in these three pages of notes is at quite an advanced level. If you don't understand the English very well, use a translation service such as http://translate.google.cn/?hl=en#en|zh-CN| to help you read these pages. (Google translate does not give a perfect translation but it will help you.)

Be warned: A large number of the IELTS examiners would probably be strong believers in the theory of man-made climate change, some of them believing it with an almost religious passion.

 

What is this, "Global Warming" Topic All About?

The following famous 8-minute video, "Give Me a Break!" might help answer that question for you.  It was produced in 2008 and features well-known U.S. television journalist, John Stossel.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHCJ-UhZFT4

The topic of "global warming" is complex, very controversial and very political. It is not easy for the average person, a non-scientist, to seek out and evaluate the scientific arguments for and against man-made global warming but, to some extent, it can be done with effort.

It is equally as difficult to gain an understanding of the political ideology that is driving the man-made global warming movement, an ideology that goes much deeper than a simple concern for the environment.

Not all climate scientists agree that "man-made global warming" is actually taking place, or will take place, as a result of the increase of man-made CO2 in the atmosphere. In fact, very many scientists vehemently disagree with this theory, but we are told by the media that only a few scientists disagree.

However, even with this high degree of strong disagreement among scientists, this concept of "man-made global warming" has been heavily promoted in the media and in educational institutions and is the basis of major new government policies.

This is quite unprecedented – we are more accustomed to seeing scientists in agreement and not engaging in name-calling of each other, which is definitely not the scientific way.

We are told that there is "consensus" among almost all scientists on this question, that the argument is "settled" and that the degree of this global warming is predicted to be "catastrophic" for mankind.

This is all obviously some kind of political indoctrination!

Perhaps most significantly, the United Nations officially endorses this unproven theory of "man-made global warming". The fact that such an important political body endorses it, a body that has a lot of influence on the governments of all nations, does not, in itself, add credence to this theory. Instead, it simply shows how enormous is the scale of this fraud and brainwashing and how powerful are the interests behind this agenda.

One of the Best Ever Environmental Speeches

In late November 2009, just after the infamous 'Climategate' data release, the internet political commentator James Corbett made the following speech:

"A Message to the Environmental Movement"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEggt0ldQUI

In 2010, on the one-year anniversary of Climategate he made the following video:

"Climategate is Still the Issue"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-uzNBtdYOo

That video has several examples of the fraud found in Climategate.

A New CO2 Study

August 11, 2017

Dr. Ed Berry has written an abstract of his new study of atmospheric CO2 modeling, which he will be publishing in a few weeks. This abstract is clear and easy to read for the average educated non-expert in this field.

The title of the abstract is, "A Model for Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide: Abstract by Edwin Berry, PhD, CCM"

After a short preamble, the abstract begins with:

"The critical questions about climate change are not about whether climate has changed or the impacts of climate change. The critical questions about climate change are about cause-and-effect:

1. How much does human-emitted carbon dioxide increase atmospheric carbon dioxide?
2. How much does increased atmospheric carbon dioxide change climate?

This paper focuses on the first question."

He then explains the errors or weaknesses of previous atmospheric models and how his model corrects these weaknesses.

The abstract finishes with the words, "To answer the first question above: human emissions are insignificant to climate change."

The abstract can be read HERE.

Major Climate Scientists Jumping Ship

August 24, 2016

Several well-known scientists who support the "man-made global warming" theory are now agreeing that a period of major global cooling is just about to start or has just started.

See this short video on the Youtube channel, Adapt 2030 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=n3K74tvYoPs or see my copy of the video here.

The Words Of Professor Lindzen

If you are genuinely interested in knowing the truth about this matter, I urge you to read, and consider, the following statement from Professor Richard Lindzen. He is the Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Sciences (Emeritus) Massachusetts Institute of Technology. (MIT is the best science university in the USA.)

Lindzen made this comment in the online Comments section of the Wall Street Journal in 2006.

Why are climate-change models so flawed?

[Before you read this article, keep in mind this quotation - "The data doesn't matter. We're not basing our recommendations on the data. We're basing them on the climate models." -- Prof. Chris Folland, Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research. That quotation tells you how much they based their predictions and IPCC reports on computer "models".] 

By "data" he means real-life measurements of climate factors such as temperature. As any scientist knows, the data DOES matter! Data is supreme!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Key Point

Lindzen and others say that a doubling of the current atmospheric CO2 content (regardless of how much is contributed by mankind's activities), will result in a 1 to 2º C increase in the global temperature as a result of the Greenhouse Effect. Furthermore, at the current rate of increase of atmospheric CO2, it will be 200 years before this doubling will be achieved!

From the graph below, that would take us back to the climate of the Medieval Warming Period or the Minoan Warming Period of about 1000 BC, both of which were balmy periods of prosperity and cultural advancement in human history!

Fig. 1 Average Global Temperatures for the Past 3,000 Years    

(From http://www.petitionproject.org/gw_article/Review_Article_HTML.php. A graph that appeared in early United Nations IPCC reports.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No Increase in Warming Since 1998

Virtually all scientists, whether they agree with man-made global warming or not, agree that global temperature data, especially satellite data, shows no statistically significant increase in average global temperatures since about 1998. That is why they changed the name from "Global Warming" to "Climate Change", which is a safe name because, of course, the climate is always changing. The idea that climate is a static situation that never changes over the years is an idea that some uneducated people might hold but climate does change over the decades, hundreds of years and thousands of years, just like, on a longer time scale, the continents of the world have shifted their positions over millions of years and just like the evolution of living species.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Global Cooling, not Global Warming

Some scientists are now predicting that we have started to enter a period of global cooling, caused by changes in the sun's cyclic activities, which will last for several decades. This is quite a contrast to the prediction of global warming on a scale that would threaten human life on this planet!

In fact, a slight warming of the planet would be good for food production but even a slight cooling would cause large-scale starvation because so many people are already living on the edge of starvation. But where in the media do we read that governments or the United Nations have expressed concern about this very possible future global cooling? Nowhere!

June 2016 Australian Storm – Perfect Example of Global Cooling

June 11, 2016

On June 5 and 6, 2016 Eastern Australia experienced a once-in-30-years (or more) storm. This storm extended all the way from the coast of Queensland to Tasmania, a distance of more than 2,500 km.

The main feature of this storm was the incredible amount of rain. For example, the village of Robertson, south west of Sydney, experienced 617 millimetres (24 inches) of rain in two days!  Link, Screenshot

Severe flooding was experienced all down the east coast of Australia. In Tasmania, every river was in flood at the same time, something that has never been recorded before in history. Some dairy farmers in Tasmania lost their entire herd of dairy cows, herds composed of hundreds of cows.

The Misleading Use of the Words, "Green" and, "Carbon"

We even have people describing "low carbon" technology (i.e., human activity that results in low emissions of CO2 to the atmosphere) as "green" technology. Obviously this term is being used for propaganda purposes because everyone has a concern for the environment and everyone appreciates nature, including greenery. They are trying to convince us that if we have a genuine concern for the environment then we must adopt "low carbon" or "green" technology.

In fact, it is ridiculous terminology and very incorrect science because plants, which provide greenery, love CO2! Greenhouse keepers know that if you feed extra CO2 into a greenhouse, (for example, three times the current atmospheric level of CO2), the plants will grow stronger, bigger, quicker and greener! Yes, burning "fossil fuels" such as coal and oil produces air pollution, but it is not the released CO2 that is the pollutant – CO2 has been recognized for hundreds of years as an essential part of life on the planet. So, why are we being told this erroneous science about CO2?

Furthermore, I have always thought that there was something suspicious about the use of the term, "low carbon" when talking about the atmosphere because it is ambiguous. That is, the term can be used to trick scientifically unsophisticated people who are concerned about the environment.

The fact is that air pollution is a serious health problem in places such as cities (especially in China) and the vast majority of this pollution consists of fine particles called particulates. When we see smoke we are actually seeing these fine particles floating in the air. And what do these fine particles consist of? They consist of very small unburned particles of carbon. So the term, "carbon pollution" really means pollution caused mostly by soot. But now the pushers of the "man-made global warming" propaganda are trying to confuse scientifically unsophisticated people into thinking that, "carbon pollution" is mostly CO2..

The following video is a good example of how some apparently well-educated people don't know the difference between "carbon", "carbon dioxide" and what actually constitutes "pollution". It's an interview on the website Russia Today of Lord Christopher Monckton. The interviewer, Oksana Boyko has always impressed me as being very politically astute and she obviously has excellent English. But I was surprised by her scientific ignorance because I thought all Russians received a good grounding in science at school, even if they specialize later in English or politics.

I must add that, although I disagree with some aspects of Lord Monckton's overall political ideology, on the question of man-made global warming, I think he is spot-on. He has done excellent work on this topic and is one of the most active spokesmen against the fraud. http://rt.com/shows/worlds-apart-oksana-boyko/global-warming-taxes-politics-023/. The video is also on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C61fERtD1LQ

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How Much Is Man's Activity Heating the Earth?

The bottom line to this complex controversy seems to be this: Apparently the Earth's atmosphere currently contains historically high levels of CO2, some of which has been undoubtedly produced by human activity. However, in geological history, which spans millions of years, CO2 levels have been, at times, as much as 30 times greater than they are now.

Some scientists claim that the Greenhouse Warming effect of the current level of CO2 will lead to catastrophic global warming while other scientists claim that the warming effect of this level (and future increases in this level) of CO2 will only be in tenths of a degree or just a couple of degrees if the atmospheric CO2 level is doubled, which will take about 200 years to happen if the current rate of increase is maintained. As Richard Lindzen, Professor of Meteorology at MIT says, it all comes down to the question of which scientists you choose to trust.

Personally, I choose to trust those scientists who have not been shown to have engaged in fraud, as you will understand when you read about "Climategate" on Page 2. Not only that, and very importantly, the estimated increases in CO2 attributable to mankind's activities are relatively insignificant compared to the contributions from natural sources. To attribute all of, or even a significant part of the rise in CO2 to man is itself scientific fraud when there is no evidence for that.

Man's Insignificant Contribution to Global Warming

See here for calculations showing that mankind's contribution to the average temperature of the earth, as produced by the Greenhouse Effect, is most probably somewhere between 0.07° to 0.46°, which is almost impossible to detect on most thermometers.

Not many people know that the theory of man-made global warming does not dispute these 0.07° to 0.46° figures.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Whole Basis for the Man-Made Global Warming Theory

The theory is ALL based on another theory, that of a cascading series of "positive feedbacks" (like a domino effect), which they say will magnify the greenhouse effect of all CO2 in the air, (not just human produced CO2) to create runaway global heating.

This theory is absolute speculation, completely unproven. Such a phenomenon has never been observed in natural systems before. As Dr. Lindzen says, if such a phenomenon existed in reality, the earth would not have lasted as long as it has.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Conclusion

You should try to familiarize yourself with both sides of this controversy, not just the side provided by the mainstream media, and ask yourself why this topic has become so political. Hint: political power and big money, especially concerning the introduction of a new "financial instrument" called "carbon trading", which will generate billions of dollars in dealer commissions and will be susceptible to large-scale speculation and fraud.

We have already seen what "financial derivatives" did to the global economy in 2008, the so-called "global financial crisis". Overall, there are plans to generate hundreds of billions of dollars from various forms of "carbon taxes".

In fact, people have been talking in terms of trillions of dollars being spent worldwide to combat a supposed, "future catastrophic global warming produced by mankind's emission of CO2 into the atmosphere" when, in all likelihood, all this expenditure would reduce the global temperatures by only a fraction of a degree.

Let the whole of humanity benefit from our global financial system, not just a few.

And let scientific truth reign, not lies.

The old view of climate still holds true – it is the sun that overwhelmingly controls climate on earth, not the trace gas CO2 (0.04% of the atmosphere), and certainly not mankind's contribution to atmospheric CO2.

    Al Gore  (Title inspired by the Church of Scientology, another fraud.)

This is a separate topic from the genuine issue of environmental degradation caused by man, such as air pollution, water pollution and the problem of the conservation of natural resources. (See: "Taking Back the Environmental Movement".)

People who oppose the concept of "CO2 as a pollutant" are not opposed to renewable and clean forms of energy such as solar and wind power. They just don't like the slogan of "low carbon" being mindlessly parroted instead of the truth being explained. If the truth took the place of this "low carbon religion", renewable energy research and usage would still progress, but based on rationality rather than on pseudoscientific deception and the ineffective financial system called, "carbon trading".

Obama Laughed at in Congress when he says, "... the overwhelming scientific evidence on climate change ..."

Those are Obama's own "deputies" behind him. They don't seem to be taking the topic too seriously.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The basic message of this video is this – The major governments of the West (e.g., of the U.S.A. and Britain) knowingly tell us blatant lies on various important topics. These governments are supported by the mainstream media, which represent and are the mouthpieces for these governments – they are not "independent" and "truth-seeking" as some people naively believe.

Video, "Lies https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=62C3lYSiHvw

(You might also be interested in this video, and this one in connection with the supposed "victims" of the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013. There is considerable evidence that the Boston Marathon bombing was a hoax, as with almost all cases of so-called "Islamic terrorism" in the West. See also here and here.)

An Important News Article

Leading Science Journal Editor Claims 50% of Scientific Research Today is Fraudulent  (April, 2016)

If you think about it, this is a very significant development especially considering the standing of the person who made this claim, but we won't see this news in the mainstream media.

There is a lot of discussion at the moment about the corruption of science today, not just concerning climate, but all science.

The Editor of Lancet, the leading medical science journal in the world, which reports on medical science research, is not just referring to medical science here – if you carefully read his statements, you'll see that he is referring to all scientific research today.
