Global warming settled science? - commentary

If your child attends a government school, he or she is being taught the world is heading toward catastrophe because of global warming caused by human activity on the planet and resulting in increased levels of carbon dioxide.

If you get your news from the government-friendly news media, you have heard or read similar assertions. If you watch entertainment programming produced by the same corporate interests who spoon-feed you your news, you may be biting your nails right now because of high temperatures this summer. In short, our culture has bombarded you with scary scenarios of looming climate-change disaster. Your children have been manipulated to urge you to change your light bulbs, turn the thermostat up or down, drive less and make your lifestyle 'greener.' You have been told this is no longer a matter of conjecture or theory, but that catastrophic global warming is a matter of settled science. All the experts agree. It's just a few radio talk-show hosts and Internet news sources like WND that suggest otherwise. If a government scientist gets out of line and expresses the smallest degree of skepticism about the impending calamity, he is forced to apologize and bend his knee to the high priests of the global warming gods.

What you haven't heard from any of those sources, however, is the following:
In 2001, more than 17,000 scientists signed a petition asking the US government not to agree to the Kyoto Treaty. These reputable and highly qualified researchers said: „There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate.”

Two-thirds of these scientists hold advanced degrees. They include 2,660 physicists, geophysicists, climatologists, meteorologists, oceanographers and environmental scientists. They include 5,017 scientists whose fields of specialization is chemistry, biochemistry, biology and other life sciences. The costs of this petition project have been paid entirely by private donations. No industrial funding or money from sources within the coal, oil, natural gas or related industries has been utilized. The petition's organizers, who include some faculty members and staff of the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine, do not otherwise receive funds from such sources. The institute itself has no such funding. No funds of tax-exempt organizations were used in this project. This petition was sent to Congress six years ago. Since then, many other eminent scientists have emerged to challenge the doomsayers of global warming. But you don't hear from them because there is an agenda behind global warming.
Global warming is quite simply a power grab – perhaps the biggest and most audacious in the history of the world. It is an attempt by big government – local, state, national and global – to get more control over the lives of ordinary people, to restrict freedom, to change fundamentally the way we interact with one another, buy and sell goods and services and earn a living. The only scary thing about global warming is the way so many people have bought into the massive hoax and fallen prey to this gigantic fraud.

Here are a few key facts to remember about global warming:
Temperatures have risen and fallen throughout history, before industrialization and after;
Just 30 years ago, many of the same shrill politicians and their government-paid scientists who are pushing the global warming scare-mongering today were promoting the idea the planet was headed for a deep freeze;
Cycles in solar activity represent the major factor in warming periods of Earth, not increased levels of carbon dioxide;
There is no evidence higher levels of CO2 cause warming of the planet; however, there is evidence that warmer temperatures increase levels of CO2.

And one more thing: Government, at all levels, has a vested interest in scaring you into giving up your rights and freedom in favor of population control and tyranny. That, quite simply, is what 'global warming' is all about. (
