We are being increasingly bombarded with news of extreme weather events across the world and politicians and the mainstream media have latched onto these to bolster their agenda that global warming/climate change apparently caused by man’s activities is exacerbating these events. One must have to conclude that these claims are fraudulent if the most simple facts about the atmosphere and climate as set out below are taken into account.
The world’s climate is one of the most complex, non-linear, chaotic systems known to man. To ignore chaos is fraud. To claim that extreme weather events are caused by man’s activities is fraud.
A sample of dry air consists of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen with the remaining 1% being mainly argon. Just 0.04% is carbon dioxide and methane is 0.000175%. Hence the latter two are trace gases in the atmosphere. Consequently, to claim that increases in carbon dioxide is drastically affecting the climate is fraud.
Carbon dioxide is a tasteless, colourless, odourless, non-toxic gas essential for all life on earth. Plant growth increases with higher levels of CO2 and horticulturists pump more of it into greenhouses to enhance crop yield. Plants have been found to be more drought resistant with higher concentrations.
About 96% of carbon dioxide comes from natural sources with the remainder coming from man’s activities. Of the latter 4%, the UK contributes about 2% which is 0.08% of the total!
Most of the carbon cycle occurs at sea since the oceans make up for 70% of the total world’s surface.
The largest ‘greenhouse’ gas is water vapour at some 96% of all ‘greenhouse’ gases. Life on Earth as we know it would be unsustainable without this blanket of gases. In a desert where the humidity is very low, you fry by day and comparatively freeze by night. In a tropical zone, you bake by day and suffer oppressive heat at night due to high humidity.
Despite the above information, politicians across the world have been mesmerised by junk science pumped out primarily from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) whose main remit was to examine the role of carbon dioxide in global warming. Since there hasn’t been any global warming in recent years, the emphasis has changed to climate change.
IPCC reports became politicised from the start. For instance, in Chapter 8 of the 1995 IPCC Report, wording agreed to by fellow chapter authors was modified considerably. For example, the group wrote:
“None of the studies cited above has shown clear evidence that we can attribute the observed [climate] changes to the specific cause of increases in greenhouse gases.
“While some of the pattern-base discussed here have claimed detection of a significant climate change, no study to date has positively attributed all or part of climate change observed to man-made causes.”
“There is evidence of an emerging pattern of climate response to forcing by greenhouse gases and sulfate aerosols … from the geographical, seasonal and vertical patterns of temperature change … These results point toward a human influence on global climate.
“The body of statistical evidence in Chapter 8, when examined in the context of our physical understanding of the climate system, now points to a discernible human influence on the global climate.”
So we can see that initial conclusions were corrupted from the very start. What we can now clearly gather is that all the stuff being spewed out about climate change being the biggest threat to the world is just a big scare story for the great unwashed. No, the issue is being used as a lever to force the developed world to distribute its (our) wealth to the undeveloped world.
In Britain, we have a Parliament which is totally signed up to this scam because it is all to do with power, control and money. But whatever we do to reduce our emissions will not have the slightest effect on the world’s climate – not least because hundreds of new coal-fired power stations are being built across the rest of the world which will replace several times over the cuts that we are being told to make.
The Climate Change Act is the biggest economic suicide note ever written in our history and must be repealed. It is already costing us an absolute fortune – money which could be put to so much better use on other essential services.
The fundamental art of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with a whole series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. – H L Mencken.
