The Greatest Scam In World History

 

Video of Heartland Institute Science Director Jay Lehr at the AM 560 Freedom Summit in suburban Chicago on October 29, 2016. Lehr’s thesis: There is not now, nor has there ever been, any scientific evidence proving mankind has affected the climate on a global scale. Our media and “scientific community” tell us otherwise. But here’s the truth: The hypothesis of man-caused global warming is based almost entirely on computer modeling that are, quite simply, a bad scientific joke. However, that has not stopped politicians from pouring hundreds of millions in taxpayer-funded grants to unethical scientists to keep the scam going. The result is continued impoverishment of the poor, a declining standard of living for the middle class, and greater empowerment of the ruling class.

Las Cruces Sun-News reports:

Liberals bamboozle public into believing global warming

A recent headline in the Community section of the Sun-News touts “Global Warming: Educated on climate change” and “Survey data shows more than half of New Mexicans understand its risks.”

The public is being bamboozled into thinking that some liberal eggheads, like Al Gore, are the smartest people in the world, and we willingly give them ever more control over our lives. It seems we have forgotten how to use our own God-given common sense. We’re like Chicken Little and her barnyard friends, so sure that the sky is falling that we end up being eaten by the fox, aka the federal government.

A 2012 op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal and signed by 16 scientists debunked the connection between global warming and carbon dioxide. The article states that CO2 is not a pollutant, but a “key component of the biosphere’s life cycle.” The column also notes that the alarmism over climate is of great benefit to many “providing government funding for academic research and a reason for government bureaucracies to grow.” It’s the old “follow the money” theme.

To quote Lord Christopher Monckton of the Science and Public Policy Institute when referring to the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, “In the 19th century, British prime ministers used to say there were ‘lies, damned lies, and statistics.’ In the 21st century, we may say there are frauds, serious frauds, and IPCC Assessment Reports.”

The Earth is an amazing organism. It is not as fragile as the radical environmentalists claim. It has amazing powers to clean and heal itself. I do not mean to imply that we should squander natural resources or fail to protect our water or air. We all want clean water to drink and clean air to breathe, but this has nothing to do with man-made global warming or climate change. When I was growing up, it was simply called conservation. It has now morphed into radical environmentalism.

 It just seems to me to be the height of narcissism to believe that we, as mere human beings, in the short time we have been on this Earth, could have the power to melt polar ice caps, cause the oceans to rise or fall, and cause extreme weather. I remember the warnings of “the coming ice age” back in the 1970s. That has not yet happened and, if it does, it will not have anything to do with humans.

It has been estimated that the Earth has been around for about 4.6 billion years, the modern form of human beings have been around for about 200,000 years, civilization is about 6,000 years old, and industrialization started only about 200 years ago. In that time, the Earth has gone through warming, cooling, rising oceans, earthquakes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions and other forms of climate disruptions. Species have come and gone. It is estimated that over 90 percent of species that once walked the earth are now extinct. And more are becoming extinct every day. By the same token new ones are being discovered all the time. And human beings, as much as we may like to believe we are that powerful, have nothing to do with any of it.

You can call me a “denier,” if you wish. But I prefer to think of myself as an “affirmer.” I affirm our God-given gifts of natural resources, such as oil, gas, and coal, contained in the Earth, were put there for our use — responsibly of course. But just leaving them where they are is to squander that gift.
