Global Warming Hoax

Is there really a shortage of oil and natural gas, or is this just hidden from the public because of political agendas? Are the ice caps really melting, polar bears disappearing, and the earth warming because of manmade CO2 emissions?

Kyota Agreement

According to Piers Corbyn, the founder of the Weather Action Foundation, “carbon dioxide is controlled by world temperatures rather than the other way around.” Corbyn states that solar activity, not carbon dioxide, is behind climate change. He again stated, “Carbon dioxide has zero effect, I repeat: zero effect, no effect whatsoever.” Corbyn says that solar activity, not carbon dioxide, is behind climate change.

“I don’t believe in man-made climate change because there is no evidence for it. In fact, carbon dioxide is controlled by world temperatures rather than the other way around,” he told RT. “Climate change is going on, and the key aspects of the big, very extreme events that happened in the last 18 months were predicted by us, the Weather Action, using solar activity.

Canada pulled out of the 1997 anti-global warming Kyoto Protocol saying the treaty is not working.
Corbyn believes the Kyoto protocol is a semi-fraudulent scheme aimed at wasting public funds, which could otherwise have a better use.

“It is a complete waste of time. It’s a waste of public money. It’s a gravy train for so-called scientists looking into things that don’t exist, and, of course, for the governments to impose taxations, and oil companies to increase oil prices on the back of increasing energy prices – which is the thing demanded by the global warming’s nonsense lobby,” he explained.

“So, frankly, I’m glad that Canada has left the Kyoto Protocol process and I hope it heralds the collapse of the whole thing," Piers Corbyn concluded.

Noted science writer, Matt Ridley, explains in the Wall Street Journal how “the scientists’” climate models may be way off base because they are putting the cart before the horse. From “When Scientists Confuse Cause and Effect:”

“When in 1999 Antarctic ice cores revealed carbon-dioxide concentrations and temperature marching in lockstep over 400,000 years, many—including me— found this a convincing argument for attributing past climate change to carbon dioxide. (About 95% of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is natural, coming from the exhalations of living things. In the past, carbon-dioxide levels rose as the earth warmed at the end of ice ages and fell as it cooled at the end of interglacial periods.)

Then four years later came clear evidence from finer-grained analysis of ice cores that temperature changes preceded carbon-dioxide changes by at least 800 years. Effects cannot precede their causes by eight centuries, so temperatures must drive carbon dioxide, chiefly by warming the sea and causing carbon dioxide dissolved in water to “out-gas” into the air.”

The Arctic Ice Returns?

After just recently watching yet another large glacier break off and nearly kill three people who were paddling nearby, I thought the glaciers were all but a thing of the past. The media shows one chunk after another falling, while making claims of global warming, rising seas, and impending doom.
Meteorologist Mark Johnson reported the story:

“Good news from the Arctic. Sea ice extent (area covered by ice) is at a seven-year high. It’s nearly back to within one standard deviation of the 30 year normal at 14.25 million square kilometers. This year’s ice extent is the highest since 2006 at this point in the year. Temperatures in the arctic remain well below freezing and should remain there through March. So, more ice should be added in the next few weeks. We are nearing the peak of sea ice in the Northern Hemisphere…I bet you didn’t expect to hear that, especially after the record melt a few years ago. Back in 2007, sea ice extent dropped to its lowest point in the satellite history. Since then, arctic ice extent has increased.

Top 10 Myths on Carbon Dioxide and Global Warming

H. Leighton Steward, a geologist, environmentalist, author, and retired energy industry executive dispels the top 10 myths about Carbon Dioxide's contribution to Global Warming.
Steward's Myth 1: The planet Earth will be healthier with lower CO2 levels.

He says: More CO2 is needed to bolster plant life, which turns the gas into oxygen while also providing food.

Steward's Myth 2: Rising CO2 levels cause temperatures to rise.

He says: Temperatures over time have fluctuated while CO2 levels have remained steady. What's more, temperature increases have historically led increases in CO2 levels.

Steward's Myth 3: Sea levels will rise 20 feet by the end of the century.

He says: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts only a 17-inch rise, and "most climatologists predict a rise of only 7 or 8 inches."

Steward's Myth 4: Scientists unanimously say that CO2 caused by humans is the dominant cause of global warming.

He says: Not so. "Many, many reputable scientists believe that natural factors overpower the current influence of CO2 on global warming."

Steward's Myth 5: The United States is the largest contributor of human-caused CO2.

He says: China, which has no CO2 restrictions, has recently exceeded the United States. Plus, it is "opening a new coal-fired power plant every week, and its production of automobiles is growing at a much more rapid rate."

Steward's Myth 6: Storms are more frequent and intense because of global warming.

He says: "According to the National Hurricane Center, storms are no more intense or frequent worldwide than they have been since 1850. Temperatures were high in the 1920s and 1930s when there was much less CO2 in the atmosphere. Constant 24-7 media coverage of every significant storm worldwide just makes it seem that way. Insist on the facts, not just what some individuals or reporters say to support their cause."

Steward's Myth 7: Polar bears will go extinct if this warm period continues through the 21st century.

He says: "A jawbone of a polar bear has been found that is 120,000 years old, a time during the previous interglacial when temperatures were 5 degrees Celsius warmer and sea level 19 feet higher than today. They adapted then; why not now?"

Steward's Myth 8: CO2 is a pollutant.

He says: "CO2 is a great airborne fertilizer, which, as its concentrations rise, causes additional plant growth and causes plants to need less water."

Steward's Myth 9: As Earth warms, the climate will become much drier and windier.

He says: Ice cores prove the opposite. The colder times were both windier and drier.

Steward's Myth 10: Higher levels of CO2 than the current 385 parts per million in the atmosphere are harmful to humans.

He says: The warning level of CO2 in submarines isn't reached until the atmosphere has 8,000 parts per million of CO2.

H. Leighton StewardLeighton Steward is a geologist, environmentalist, author, and retired energy industry executive. He has written about the reasons for the loss of much of the Mississippi River Delta (Louisiana's national treasure) and has given advice on how the nation can achieve "no net loss" of wetlands in the future, advice that has been accepted by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers. He was lead author on a book about nutrition and health (Sugar Busters) that gave advice on how to lose weight and prevent and or treat diabetes. The book became a No. 1 New York Times bestseller for 16 weeks and made a significant contribution to the changes that have occurred regarding the availability of no-sugar-added, higher fiber, and low-glycemic products in the supermarkets. More recently, Steward has written a book (Fire, Ice and Paradise) that is an endeavor to educate the nonscientist about the many causes of global climate change so that readers will be better prepared to understand what they hear, see, and read about in the media and from the politicians. He has received numerous environmental awards, including the regional EPA Administrator's Award for environmental excellence. He is chairman of the board of the Institute for the Study of Earth and Man at Southern Methodist University, was chairman of the National Wetlands Coalition, and was twice chairman of the Audubon Nature Institute. He currently serves on the boards or boards of visitors of the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, EOG Resources, the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, and the Southwest Research Institute and is an emeritus member of the Tulane University board. His current interest lies in helping to educate the public and politicians about the benefits of carbon dioxide (CO2) as it relates to the plant and animal kingdoms and their related ecosystems and habitats and to the general health of humanity.

Carbon Dioxide has Zero Effect on Global Warming

Carbon Dioxide has Zero Effect on Global Warming
The U.S. government is complicit in its media propaganda on the effects of Carbon Dioxide on global warming.    This helps sell the "green energy" agenda rather than pursuing cheaper, more efficient fossil fuels.  Instead they tax, place government controls on emissions, and renounce business in its name -- and who pays for it all in the end, us taxpayers.

Enough with the phony science, political agendas, and funneling of wealth on the backs of American citizens -- all done in the name of "feel good" reasons they sell to the unwitting public.
