Readers' Views: Global warming is a myth

Global warming is a hot issue, to say the least. President Barack Obama said he will concentrate on global climate change in his second term.There always seems to be global warming to global climate change and back again. We had a major alarm back …

Readers' Views: Global warming is a myth


What is the main source behind the global warming alarm? It is a scientific organization known as the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Control), the scientific organization of the United Nations. Has the U.N. ever been honest about anything?

Do you remember the U.N.’s Oil for Food plan that went astray with scandal? That was headed by Maurice Strong, who now lives in China. He and Mikhail Gorbachev were the main proponents of the global warming hoax.

The reason for the global warming alarm has nothing to do with weather. For some reason, a very important person at the IPCC came out and told the truth – Ottmar Edenhofer, a German native who was the lead author of the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment. Edenhofer  tells what the environmental alarm is really all about: “Basically, it’s a big mistake to discuss climate policy separately from the major themes of globalization. The climate summit in Cancun at the end of the month is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War. But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy.”

You’ve probably heard of the carbon footprint. A company was formed called the Chicago Climate Exchange. The largest shareholder is Goldman Sachs. One of the members of the board was Obama, who helped get the Chicago Climate Exchange funding. Two of the people who made large amounts of money were Al Gore and Strong.
We now see an alliance between our fellow American elite and the U.N. That is not a good combination for us freedom-living Americans.

Between the 16th and 19th centuries the earth experienced the Little Ice Age. This resulted in a dramatic increase in sea ice. The main areas affected were Iceland, Russia, North America and Greenland. Greenland used to be inhabited by Norse colonies before the sudden drop in temperatures. At that time, Greenland was habitable and wasn’t completely covered by ice. This cooling period caused a food shortage among the Vikings because of the shorter growing season.

We now hear an alarm sounded because the ice is melting in Greenland. I’m sure what the global warming alarmists don’t want you to know that the temperature in Greenland is approaching what it used to be. Greenland will become habitable again.

A leading proponent of global warming is Dr. James Hansen. Hansen recently retired from NASA. He was in charge of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies. Hansen and his friend, Gore, launched a campaign stating that the Bush administration was concealing global warming threats. It was Hansen who was concealing information.

NASA data had been influenced by a Y2K bug that adjusted data and made it look as though 1998 was the warmest year on record.

Here are the actual results: The warmest decade on record was actually the 1930s. The warmest year on record was 1934. Half of the warmest years were in the 1930s. Even though we have gone through a warm period, it doesn’t compare to the 1930s.

Dwight Eisenhower warned us: “In holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific technological elite.”
