Global warming: Shut the corrupt IPCC down and prosecute key individuals for fraud

Never in the history of the world have we seen such a global hoax, perpetrated by a malignant political entity for magnifying its power and securing its funding. A hoax that succeeded because it appeared to have scientific validity and conveyed power, position, prestige and profits on those who went along for the ride.

From the United Kingdom’s Telegraph, we find a tale of subverted science and self-serving political motivations … 

“A perfect storm is brewing for the IPCC: The emerging errors of the IPCC's 2007 report are not incidental but fundamental, says Christopher Booker”

“The news from sunny Bali that there is to be an international investigation into the conduct of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and its chairman Dr Rajendra Pachauri would have made front-page headlines a few weeks back. But while Scotland and North America are still swept by blizzards, in their worst winter for decades, there has been something of a lull in the global warming storm – after three months when the IPCC and Dr Pachauri were themselves battered by almost daily blizzards of new scandals and revelations.”

“And one reason for this lull is that the real message of all the scandals has been lost.”

The chief defence offered by the warmists to all those revelations centered on the IPCC's last 2007 report is that they were only a few marginal mistakes scattered through a vast, 3,000-page document. OK, they say, it might have been wrong to predict that the Himalayan glaciers would melt by 2035; that global warming was about to destroy 40 per cent of the Amazon rainforest and cut African crop yields by 50 per cent; that sea levels were rising dangerously; that hurricanes, droughts and other ‘extreme weather events’ were getting worse. These were a handful of isolated errors in a massive report; behind them the mighty edifice of global warming orthodoxy remains unscathed. The ‘science is settled,’ the ‘consensus’ is intact.”

Truth-be-told, the science was never settled and the consensus was among a very small group of co-conspirators who were advancing their institutions’ and their own self-interests. 

You cannot evaluate these mistakes on a numerical basis – as these were serious intentional errors, knowingly made to produce a specific political result. A result which would have been devastating to the economy and social fabric of the United States, if not to the greater world itself.

The basis of the media campaign to panic people and nations into taking action is now suspect …

But this completely misses the point. Put the errors together and it can be seen that one after another they tick off all the central, iconic issues of the entire global warming saga. Apart from those non-vanishing polar bears, no fears of climate change have been played on more insistently than these: the destruction of Himalayan glaciers and Amazonian rainforest; famine in Africa; fast-rising sea levels; the threat of hurricanes, droughts, floods and heatwaves all becoming more frequent.

The triumph of environmental activism over science …

“All these alarms were given special prominence in the IPCC's 2007 report and each of them has now been shown to be based, not on hard evidence, but on scare stories, derived not from proper scientists but from environmental activists. Those glaciers are not vanishing; the damage to the rainforest is not from climate change but logging and agriculture; African crop yields are more likely to increase than diminish; the modest rise in sea levels is slowing not accelerating; hurricane activity is lower than it was 60 years ago; droughts were more frequent in the past; there has been no increase in floods or heatwaves.”

Deliberate mistruths or exaggerations to create media attention and funding opportunities …

“Furthermore, it has also emerged in almost every case that the decision to include these scare stories rather than hard scientific evidence was deliberate. As several IPCC scientists have pointed out about the scare over Himalayan glaciers, for instance, those responsible for including it were well aware that proper science said something quite different. But it was inserted nevertheless – because that was the story wanted by those in charge.”

In addition, we can now read in shocking detail the truth of the outrageous efforts made to ensure that the same 2007 report was able to keep on board IPCC's most shameless stunt of all – the notorious "hockey stick" graph purporting to show that in the late 20th century, temperatures had been hurtling up to unprecedented levels. This was deemed necessary because, after the graph was made the centerpiece of the IPCC's 2001 report, it had been exposed as no more than a statistical illusion. (For a full account see Andrew Montford's The Hockey Stick Illusion, and also my own book The Real Global Warming Disaster.)

Socialist control and wealth redistribution?

“In other words, in crucial respects the IPCC's 2007 report was no more than reckless propaganda, designed to panic the world's politicians into agreeing at Copenhagen in 2009 that we should all pay by far the largest single bill ever presented to the human race, amounting to tens of trillions of dollars. And as we know, faced with the prospect of this financial and economic abyss, December's Copenhagen conference ended in shambles, with virtually nothing agreed.”

What say you Al Gore as you dismiss the errors as mere mistakes that do not change the central thesis of global warming and the urgent need to embark on radical policies in order to save the planet?

Climategate: fraud, manipulation and the covert subversion of the “peer review” process which was formerly the basis of all good science …

“What is staggering is the speed and the scale of the unravelling – assisted of course, just before Copenhagen, by ‘Climategate,’ the emails and computer codes leaked from East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit. Their significance was the light they shone on the activities of a small group of British and US scientists at the heart of the IPCC, as they discussed ways of manipulating data to show the world warming faster than the evidence justified; fighting off legitimate requests for data from outside experts to hide their manipulations; and conspiring to silence their critics by excluding their work from scientific journals and the IPCC's 2007 report itself. (Again, a devastating analysis of this story has just been published by Stephen Mosher and Tom Fuller in Climategate: The CRUtape Letters).”

One of the chief perpetrator’s cops a public plea … perhaps before he is prosecuted for malfeasance, the destruction of valuable climate data and outright fraud …

“Almost as revealing as the leaked documents themselves, however, was the recent interview given to the BBC by the CRU's suspended director, Dr Phil Jones, who has played a central role in the global warming scare for 20 years, not least as custodian of the most prestigious of the four global temperature records relied on by the IPCC. In his interview Jones seemed to be chucking overboard one key prop of warmest faith after another, as he admitted that the world might have been hotter during the Medieval Warm Period 1,000 years ago than it is today, that before any rise in CO2 levels temperatures rose faster between 1860 and 1880 than they have done in the past 30 years, and that in the past decade their trend has been falling rather than rising.”

Why has nobody mentioned that the most significant climate models used by governmental and private institutions could not replicate nor account for the current temperature trends which deviate from the continual temperature rise in an almost straight line?

Why has nobody mentioned that the basic data may have been cherry-picked to produce a foreordained result?

Why has nobody mentioned that there were significant programming and statistical issues with the data manipulation?

Why has nobody mention the significant manipulation of raw datasets and that the original data may have been lost forever?

Perhaps because that would have introduced doubt into the central thesis: global warming requires massive wealth redistribution among countries and a political realignment of forces to achieve “social justice.”

Dirty dealings and self-interest?

The implications of all this for the warming scare, as it has been presented to us over the past two decades, can scarcely be overestimated. The reputation of the IPCC is in shreds. And this is to say nothing of the personal reputation of the man who was the mastermind of its 2007 report, its chairman, Dr Rajendra Pachauri.

It was in this newspaper that we first revealed how Pachauri has earned millions of pounds for his Delhi-based research institute Teri, and further details are still emerging of how he has parlayed his position into a worldwide business empire, including 17 lucrative contracts from the EU alone.”

The socialists and special interests want to continue the charade …

There are any number of people who are now fighting to preserve the reputations of prestigious institutions who profited from going along with the global warming scam, not to mention the individuals who have found their personal integrity and ability to honestly pursue scientific inquiries in question. Also, the special interests who were so looking forward to billions in profits from government grants, subsidies and monopolistic positions.

But we should not expect the truth to break in too suddenly on this mass of vested interests. Too many people have too much at stake to allow the faith in man-made global warming, which has sustained them so long and which is today making so many of them rich, to be abandoned.”

Can we trust the United Nations and Pachauri to be honest brokers in any investigation?

I say that the current record of United Nations’ corruption and false reporting makes them the last non-governmental agency in the world to investigate the IPCC. The UN has been known to curry media attention and funding by overstating things like the rate of population growth and the disaster that will befall the planet; the impact of the avian flu and the disaster that will befall the planet and the swine flu and the disaster that will befall the planet. These are the people who told medical personnel to stop testing for aids and simply accept any person that was emaciated, malnourish and feverish to be considered an aids victim for the purpose of racking up media-worthy body counts. Ditto with the swine flu; where the UN said to consider everybody that is presenting with flu-like symptoms to be counted as a swine flu victim. Truth be told: the population explosion did not occur as a straight line growth function; normal seasonal flu infection and mortality greatly outweighed the avian and swine flu “pandemics.” And the lack of sanitary facilities in Africa caused much of the dysentery that led to problematic patients. And who can forget the United Nation’s stonewalled investigation into the oil-for food program. The UN appears to be comprised of politicians and fat-cat bureaucrats living the “high life” on other people’s money. Dishonest and cowardly, they do not act well in preventing genocide or distributing disaster relief supplies. So why should anybody believe this corrupt excuse for an international forum?

“The so-called investigations into Climategate and Dr Michael ‘Hockey Stick’ Mann seem like no more than empty establishment whitewashes. There is little reason to expect that the inquiry into the record of the IPCC and Dr Pachauri that is now being set up by the UN Environment Programme and the world's politicians will be very different.”

They need to demonize carbon dioxide to assert control and make money …

“Since 1988, when the greatest scare the world has seen got under way, hundreds of billions
of pounds have been poured into academic research projects designed not to test the CO2 warming thesis but to take it as a given fact, and to use computer models to make its impacts seem as scary as possible. The new global ‘carbon trading’ market, already worth $126 billion a year, could soon be worth trillions. Governments, including our own, are calling for hundreds of billions more to be chucked into absurd ‘carbon-saving’ energy schemes, with the cost to be met by all of us in soaring taxes and energy bills.”

It is easy to prove the corruption within the scientific community…

One, we can see that carbon dioxide is a life-sustaining  gas rather than a pollutant.

Two, the balance between carbon dioxide dissolved in the oceans and the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide is somewhat fixed and forms a self-regulating feedback loop.

Three, the rise in carbon dioxide lags the rise in temperature so it can’t be considered causal.

Four, there is a simple explanation for the increase in the carbon dioxide levels: as the oceans warm more carbon dioxide comes out of solution and enters the atmosphere. Somewhat like opening a cold beer on a warm day.

Fifth, there are gross inputs to climate change such as the Sun’s output, our planet’s orbit, the planet’s rotational dynamics, volcanic activity, ocean currents and the greatest of all greenhouse gasses, water vapor, which greatly outweigh the influence of carbon dioxide on global warming.

And sixth, the world has been hotter, colder; with more carbon dioxide and less carbon dioxide in periods not affected by man and industrialization.

No one is explaining these issues to the public or considering that an increase in carbon dioxide may be beneficial to the planet’s ecosystem. 

Will the special interests win out over the citizens and taxpayers remains to be seen?

“With all this mighty army of gullible politicians, dutiful officials, busy carbon traders, eager ‘renewables’ developers and compliant, funding-hungry academics standing to benefit from the greatest perversion of the principles of true science the world has ever seen, who are we to protest that their emperor has no clothes? (How apt that that fairy tale should have been written in Copenhagen.) Let all that fluffy white ‘global warming’ continue to fall from the skies, while people shiver in homes that, increasingly, they will find they can no longer afford to heat. We have called into being a true Frankenstein's monster. It will take a mighty long time to cut it down to size.”

Bottom line …

The United States is facing the clear and present danger of a perfect storm of governmental corruption, special interest deals and a toxic “command and control” socialist political agenda. All aimed at enlarging government, increasing tax revenues, changing our political and economic structure and limiting the freedoms of all Americans.

We need to do more than deal with dishonest brokers and global warming, we need to take back our government from those who believe they have the right to own and operate our America for their self interest.

Remember these people when you vote. If I had my druthers, I would vote every incumbent out of office and replace them with my neighbors. For those who claim that there would be a wholesale loss of institutional knowledge, I say there would be more honesty and openness – and they could hardly do worse than the present group of corrupt and complacent politicians, their bureaucratic supporters and the special interests which subvert our government with the fiction of legal bribery in the form of campaign funds and voter support.
