“We have all been victims of a scam so vast and all-encompassing it makes Enron look like a model of modesty and integrity” – James Delingpole
How much longer are our global ‘elites’ going to get away with this? A little longer? In our lifetimes? Forever?
This year, the western world celebrates the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, the document that set a template for governmental accountability, crafted by a band of fed-up English barons who forced King John to sign it.
As historians praise its strengths, however, nobody seems to be noticing how many of our elected leaders are acting like bad kings – unaccountable as long as the media supports, distorts and/or conceals their lies and scams.
Earlier this month, the UK was agog over a column by environmental guru Christopher Booker in which he called the recently discovered fiddling with temperature data “the biggest science scandal ever.”
“When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically ‘adjusted’ to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.”
Booker was referring to the findings of Paul Homewood who, on his notalotofpeopleknowthat.blog, exposed how the world is being tricked by systematically manipulated data on global warming. It began when Homewood checked the published temperature graphs for three weather stations in Paraguay against the originally recorded temperatures. In every instance, the actual trend of 60 years of data had been dramatically reversed, so that a cooling trend was changed to one that showed a marked warming. He found the same suspicious one-way ‘adjustments’, when he checked a swath of other South American weather stations around the original weather stations. The results were the same as well when he checked weather stations across the Arctic, between Canada and the heart of Siberia, where he found the same one-way adjustments had been made to show warming up to 1 degree C or higher, thus raising an ever larger question mark over the entire official surface-temperature record.
All of this suggests that if the guardians of the world’s land-based temperature records have been adjusting the raw data to exaggerate ‘global warming’, this is a crime against the scientific method unparalleled in history and affecting everyone on the planet.
Whether it’s a working couple in Ontario finding it impossible to sell their property because of a wind farm nearby; or scientists hounded out of their jobs because their research doesn’t fit the ‘global warming’ narrative; or science teachers obliged to lecture students on the dread perils of climate change; or politicians targeted as ‘deniers’ by a green attack dog campaign financed by the radical environmentalist billionaire, Tom Steyer. All are victims of the same global scam perpetrated by a tiny group of individuals whose junk statistical manipulations of the global climate records have transformed the interpretation of routine weather patterns into the world’s biggest and most influential ever science scare story.
According to Booker, contrary to the warmists’ propaganda, the raw weather station data appears to show in many cases that the 1930s was the warmest decade in the last 100 years (not, as activists have insisted, the period since the late 1990s). Yet this data has been ‘adjusted’ – without any convincing explanation so far – to make the 1930s look cooler than they were and recent periods warmer.
And the lie has been repeated like a mantra again and again, by no less than U.S. president Barack Obama who, last fall, told the UN the summer of 2014 was the warmest on record when it was not! And who, just two daysbefore Booker’s explosive column, released a national security strategy claiming rising seas, worsening droughts, melting Arctic ice and extreme weather events rank among the most potent threats to U.S. national security.
The net effect has been to make 20th century warming look much more extreme than it actually was – creating panic among the scientific establishment which has been using this ‘adjusted’ data to support its claim that the world is currently experiencing an unprecedented phenomenon known as Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming. In other words, the earth is becoming catastrophically hot and it’s man’s fault.
Neither of which is true. But when, in recent years, has that mattered? According to Telegraph investigative reporter James Delingpole, the common defense used by alarmist ‘experts’ to shore up their shaky theory is the claim that lots of different scientific institutions have reached the same conclusion independently of one another. But that isn’t true either. They are not independent, Delingpole says. They’re all in cahoots and pushing the same narrative, using the example of the ‘suspicious’ one-way adjustments as proof of ‘global warming’.
“If the temperature records on which the entire edifice of the international global warming industry is based are a busted flush, then we have all been victims of a scam so vast and all-encompassing it makes Enron look like a model of modesty and integrity,” Delingpole charges. “It also raises the question – and I speak here, of course, metaphorically rather than literally: when are heads going to roll?”
As Al Gore was ramping up his demands at Davos last month for spending $93-trillion (yes, with a T) to remove all cars from major cities, Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne was inching towards imposing a carbon tax on Ontario, threatening further harm to the province’s lagging economy – all in support of a bogus theory.
Does she know the truth? Does it matter?
Never mind that her former boss Dalton McGuinty impoverished this province with his bankrupting green schemes.
Does she realize that, once involved in a sting, it must be kept going? As in the 1973 hit film The Sting where Paul Newman’s character says the key to the con is that it’s never over; that you can never let the people you’ve conned know they’ve been conned. Never.
So the con goes on as a coterie of con artists continue their political justification for picking taxpayers’ pockets even deeper and for controlling them more than ever before.
Which may be why the global-warming-elite are continuing to perpetrate this giant fear-mongering con game and why every major snowstorm is turned into an unprecedented ‘progressive’ polar event and why you can expect to see a campaign to discredit Homewood’s findings. Why? Because they can’t admit there’s anything wrong with the entire doctrine of ‘global warming’.
Instead, they must continue to promote the belief that got them where they are today, and on their belief that voters are too dumb or too busy to figure it out.
To admit otherwise would be to cut off their gargantuan funds – be it generated by tax revenue, charitable gifts or scientific grants. And it might lead to criminal charges.
Like Bernie Madoff.
