Why Climate Skeptics Say What They Do
Written by Hans Schreuder
With almost all media outlets “sold” on subscribing to the “man-is-evil and causing global warming and/or climate change and/or climate disruption” meme, what do you expect kids and ordinary folk to “know” about “global temperatures”?
The latest alarmist propaganda piece by Bloomberg typifies the pattern, as penned by compliant (unthinking) author, Alex Nussbaum with his question to schoolkids: “Boys and girls, are global temperatures rising or falling?”
Bloomberg isn’t letting on about all those cherry-picked temperature stations – with no less than 806 inconvenient ‘cold’ weather stations dropped from climate scientists’ official sampling. So it’s no wonder Nussbaum can disingenuously claim “scientists almost universally agree the world is warming.” His assertion, itself, is doubly misleading because science has also never depended on consensus.
Specific historical proof of the fallibility of this is the 1,400 year “consensus” that the sun revolved around the earth, as well as all the planets and stars – a position enforced by the Papal seat no less. There are many other examples, although none so extreme as to have lasted 14 centuries.
In those days scientists who went against that consensus were either burnt at the stake or confined to house arrest. Nowadays they lose their government funding an/or university tenures. No denial can be tolerated!
We have an identical situation now with the hype over human produced carbon dioxide (CO2), with even the current Pope adding his name to the charade and no debate is allowed – after all “the science is settled” – nothing is further from the truth!
To date there has not been one single scientifically verified piece of evidence to link any warming with an increase in atmospheric CO2 despite no less than 4,000 peer reviewed (pal reviewed?) papers screaming alarm.
Oceans are not fast rising; neither North nor South Pole is melting unusually – both have had record HIGH ice extent during their most recent respective winters; Polar Bears are not becoming extinct – quite the opposite. Indeed, for every alarmist assertion based on statistics skeptics point to contradictions in the evidence. It just goes to prove the old adage, ‘there are lies, damned lies, and statistics.’ Science is hardly ever settled and the refusal of any scientist in the climate alarm field to debate the science behind any and all of the scare stories fed to the eager media is abhorrent to a proper scientist like myself.
It is absolutely impossible to supply empirical evidence to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that an increase of atmospheric carbon dioxide causes an increase in the averaged world temperature.
Ordinary citizens have neither the time nor inclination to vet each and every official pronouncement. All they can rely on is their common sense and pose to the alarmists a few telling questions. Questions that needs answering include:
Are you aware that to get a climate science paper peer reviewed in established (government-sanctioned) journals, the authors have to, de facto, agree to the basic premise that any warming is due to humans?
Are you aware that any climate science academic who needs to raise funds for his institute has to agree that any warming is due to humans?
Are you aware that despite a constantly increasing level of atmospheric CO2 there has been no constantly increasing world temperature?
Are you aware that there is in fact no such metric as a “world temperature”; that temperature readings are routinely adjusted to fit a pre-determined agenda?
As mentioned earlier, we are seeing an increase of weather stations in cooler zones being routinely shut down “due to costs.” Is it more than mere coincidence that the temperature stations being lost are in colder areas? So, with this backdrop of apparent mendacity the alleged “warming” being claimed is a mere few hundredths of one degree, which is (a) well outside the accuracy of most thermometers, and (b) hardly stuff of a catastrophic meltdown. Indeed, when perusing our planet’s historic temperature records, slight variations of the order we’ve seen in the last hundred years or so are entirely within natural variation.
But let’s talk a little about that ‘evil’ gas – carbon dioxide – the supposed source of all this ‘dangerous’ temperature rise.
Please bear in mind that there has never ever, as yet, been presented any empirical evidence that can be interpreted as proof that the totality of atmospheric carbon dioxide has any influence upon the climate – quite the reverse – climate influences the level of atmospheric carbon dioxide! The man-made proportion of the total amount of atmospheric carbon dioxide is only around 3%, that’s three percent and is the figure detailed in several UN IPCC reports.
As an increasing number of independent scientific studies are showing (such as those at Principia Scientific International) it is not even physically possible for any amount of CO2 to cause warming of the planet. In fact, CO2 is a cooling gas, by whatever means you look at it. Even NASA, now admits that CO2 helps to keep our planet from over-heating – http://www.principia-scientific.org/the-four-known-scientific-ways-carbon-dioxide-cools-earth-s-climate.html
To simplify the technical jargon it is mainly cooling that occurs in earth’s atmosphere by the actions of gases convecting. It can be said that re-radiated energy, in any case, never makes the emitter of that same energy warmer, else we would have found an unlimited source of energy! So few climate scientists, let alone policymakers, realise that all-important issue.
All talk of so-called atmospheric “feedbacks” is scientific gobbledygook as there is never any mention of where the extra energy to “cause” the feedback is coming from, a vital detail that escapes all but the most thorough expert.
As a scientist I could go on and on, backed by at least 30,000 scientists from all over the world and by at least 6,000 papers and articles that were not accepted by the mainstream publishing journals – for political reasons.
Please be advised that when anyone claims that any one year is “warmer” than any other year, when the difference over the past 18 years is barely 0.5°C, they are clutching at straws in their bias towards scaremongering. And keep in mind, during this same period the atmospheric level of CO2 has kept on rising, all due to perfectly natural causes.
To many who have followed the global warming debate, it is becoming increasingly clear that the true agenda, hidden in plain view, but kept from the public due to lack of media publicity, is the UN’s highly-political Agenda 21 – a route map to an unelected world government controlled by the rich elite (that nefarious ‘one percent’)
For lazy journalists, the politically motivated or plain stupid, it is so much easier to just go along with the consensus, to not rock the boat, to appeal to the authority of government-approved ‘experts’ etc. etc.
The truth remains, regardless of what you read in the newspapers or are told by these so-called experts.
The truth is that the minor warming period during the latter part of the last century is more likely than not perfectly natural and driven by a highly active sun, the same sun that has since gone into a much quieter mode – quieter than in the past 100 years – and may even be heading for hibernation. For the future of mankind let’s pray that does not happen!
Study of our planet’s evolution of the species in and out of ice ages tells us it is cold, not warmth, that is the enemy of life. So there is less reason to be scared about a bit more warmth when more cold is shown to be substantially more harmful.
During the last two documented and widely acknowledged warming periods, two thousand years ago when the Romans ruled the world (Roman Warm Period), and one thousand years ago (Medieval Warm Period) there was prosperity, abundant harvests and life was good. Moreover, neither did the ice caps vanish nor the seas rise alarmingly and only the extreme edges of Greenland were colonised.
To repeat myself, the answer is hidden within that UN’s Agenda 21 – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agenda_21 which hammers out the message that are too many people and not enough resources. It is the classic Malthusian meme many of us learned in our schooldays and which has been proven wrong time and time again. The Iron Age did not stop when the world ran out of iron, neither did the Bronze Age or the Stone Age stop, etc. etc.
The climate alarmists (modern day Malthusians) scream inexorably “we’re running out of fossil fuels!” –so let’s all panic! But, oh dear, geologists keep discovering new natural sources of these hydro-carbons that appear to be able to last us at least another 1,000 years. And so on and so forth it goes. Indeed, hydrocarbons are being discovered elsewhere in our solar system, thereby casting doubt on the very notion of fossils in ‘fossil fuel.’ Indeed, it appears increasingly likely that earth makes this marvellous natural source of energy on a 24/7/365 basis and long may we continue to enjoy it!

Here is proof, one of many, that there is no magical greenhouse effect on earth, keeping earth warmer that it should be and being enhanced by the increase in carbon dioxide Lunar cooling/heating disproves Greenhouse Effect on earth
The scientific truth about atmospheric carbon dioxide is that is causes atmospheric cooling and no warming at all is even possible; quite the opposite of what you have been told thus far: http://www.principia-scientific.org/the-four-known-scientific-ways-carbon-dioxide-cools-earth-s-climate.html
Please immerse yourself in this letter to Aussie Climate Minister Greg Hunt and decide if you have been shown any evidence that would stand up to scientific scrutiny.
