President Trump Set to Expose Government Climate Science Fraud
Written by John O'Sullivan
President-elect Donald Trump has made it clear that he regards man-made global warming as “a hoax.” Climate scientists worldwide are greatly concerned that Trump’s presidency could unravel 30 years of UN climate change work.
Trump has already appointed Myron Ebell of the Competitive Enterprise Institute to oversee the dismantling of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Ebell is expected to root out corrupt practice allegedly centered around a core of “elite” government researchers involved in an international conspiracy of climate data mishandling. The allegations erupted after more than 30,000 leaked (or hacked) emails hit the worldwide web during the Climategate scandal (2009). Skeptics claim evidence in the emails exposed unethical practice by scientists at NASA, NOAA and other government departments in the U.S. linked with those in the UK Australia and New Zealand. Half a dozen self-serving official “investigations” determined there was no wrongdoing (think: Hillary Clinton’s latest email scandal).
On Twitter, Trump has called the science of global warming everything from a “hoax” to “bulls—” to a scheme “created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.” (He later said he was joking about the China tweet).
Indeed, Trump has long been damning of the entire Big Green narrative and said as much in an interview with talk show host Hugh Hewitt last year. The incoming US President also told “Fox & Friends” earlier this year that climate change “is just a very, very expensive form of tax. A lot of people are making a lot of money.”
News of Trump’s victory has triggered great concern at the latest UN climate talks (COP22) in Marrakech, Morocco, where delegates from almost 200 countries – including the US – were meeting for the first time since last year’s Paris ‘Treaty’ entered force.
“A third of the people here are walking around like zombies, like the walking dead, not sure what to do,” said UC Berkeley Professor Daniel Kammen, speaking from Morocco.
The specter of Myron Ebell being Trump’s enforcer in the climate science arena has drawn much dismay among establishment figures. Here’s how Energy & Environment Daily describes him:
“Ebell is a well-known and polarizing figure in the energy and environment realm. His participation in the EPA transition signals that the Trump team is looking to drastically reshape the climate policies the agency has pursued under the Obama administration. Ebell’s role is likely to infuriate environmentalists and Democrats but buoy critics of Obama’s climate rules.”
Ebell has already indicated that the root cause for the growth of junk climate science has been the incessant government demand for a solution to a non-existent problem simply for the ulterior purpose of raising taxes. Ebell has called the UK’s Chief Scientist David King “an alarmist with ridiculous views who knows nothing about climate change”; he added that since all scientists in Europe and in other countries outside the USA were funded by governments, none of them could be seen as independent.
Prominent skeptics of man-made global warming have been unanimous in expressing delight that President Trump has a powerful electoral mandate from voters to dismantle the climate alarmist “industry” . Efforts to restrict ‘greenhouse gas’ emissions costs taxpayers “YUGE” sums. The Small Business Administration estimates that compliance with such regulations costs the U.S. economy more than $1.75 trillion per year — about 12%-14% of GDP, and half of the $3.456 trillion Washington is currently spending. The Competitive Enterprise Institute believes the annual cost is closer to $1.8 trillion when an estimated $55.4 billion regulatory administration and policing budget is included.
Respected Canadian climatologist and prominent international skeptic, Dr Tim Ball says he is “thrilled” that Trump won. Other nations, such as the UK and Australia (with “Brexit and Clexit” rising) are also seemingly headed on a path of political reform away from climate alarmist policies premised on the “97 percent scientific consensus” – another narrative increasingly disbelieved by voters in deepening mistrust of establishment “experts.”
Currently, Dr Ball is in Australia working with Senator Malcolm Roberts on implementing his plan to challenge all national weather agencies to produce empirical evidence of human CO2 caused global warming. Ball’s latest book, ‘Human Caused Global Warming. The Biggest Deception in History’ identifies for laypeople where skeptics perceive the science is awry.
Senator Roberts is a prominent skeptic in Australia known for his relentless exposure of alleged climate fraud (see CSIRoh!) by Australian climate researchers at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). Readers can access Senator Roberts’s maiden speech on YouTube.
Energized by events in America Dr Ball, Senator Roberts and others are gathering in Australia to build on the momentum given by Trump to climate skeptic movement.
Dr Ball told Principia Scientific International earlier today, “I am presenting along with Tony Heller whose dissection of NASA GISS, NOAA, and CSIRO data manipulation is truly devastating. You can look at Tony on YouTube as well look for his 2016 presentation.”
With public antipathy towards junk climate science policies worldwide Dr Ball is feeling bouyed ahead of his own personal legal battles into alleged climate fraud. Ball is set to appear in the British Columbia Supreme Court, Vancouver, Canada to defend a multi-million dollar epic libel law suit brought against him by Dr Michael “hockey stick” Mann in February 2017.
