Four events during the past two months have exposed anthropogenic climate change as the twenty-first century’s Piltdown Man or Cardiff Giant, the latter being the hoax that led P.T. Barnum or one of his associates to proclaim that a sucker is born every minute. Global warming is probably the biggest junk science scam of all in terms of its ambition to transfer money from working people to speculators and similar parasites, manufacturing firms in China and India, and the United Nations. Had carbon taxes and cap-and-trade mandates actually gone into effect, the trusts of the 19th century would have rolled in their graves with envy. We refer specifically to:
FACT: Disposal of raw data by the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit, admitted openly by same. This makes it impossible for other scientists to reproduce the CRU’s results independently, so any conclusions from that data are null and void according to the generally accepted standards of scientific research.
FACT: Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) wrote a letter to the Wall Street Journal that says openly that the real purpose of cap and trade is to enrich Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan Chase (both of which bundled more than half a million dollars to elect Barack Obama), along with the Green Exchange and New York Stock Exchange.
CREDIBLE ALLEGATION: A supervisor at Barack Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency allegedly committed scientific misconduct and academic dishonesty by ordering a subordinate to suppress information that did not support Team Obama’s cap and trade agenda. Kimberley Strassel’s column in the Wall Street Journal names the supervisor, who could probably sue the WSJ for libel if the accusation was false and reckless. The WSJ must therefore be sure of its ground to publish something like this.
ALLEGATION: Admittedly stolen (through computer hacking) E-mails suggest a widespread conspiracy to commit academic dishonesty and scientific misconduct by, among other things, suppressing data and findings inconsistent with anthropogenic global warming. We note that much of the climate research is funded by the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which has a vested interest in “proving” that American industry and power generation–Chinese industry and power generation is ignored–causes global warming.
Now, good men, Earth forgive you each trespass,
And keep you from the sin of greenhouse gas.
My carbon offsets cure and will suffice,
So that it gains me gold, or silver brings,
Or else, I care not- brooches, spoons or rings.
You must embrace fully Al Gore’s line of bull
While o’er your eyes we will pull the wool!
An offset certificate I’ll give you, anon,
And into environmental bliss you’ll go, each one.
For I’ll absolve you, by Kyoto’s special power,
You that send me money, as Green this hour
As you were born.
And lo, sirs, thus I preach.
And the United Nations, who is our souls’ great leech,
So grant you each his offset to receive;
For that is best; I will not you deceive.
But, sirs, you must swallow my whole tale;
I’ve carbon credits in my pouch that cannot fail,
As good as Kyoto Treaty ever saw, I vow,
The which I got by kindness of Al Gore.
If dollars your change of heart and mind reveal,
You’ll get my absolution while you kneel.
Come forth, and send me your lucre bright,
And quickly I’ll set your consciences aright;
Or else receive a carbon credit as you wend,
All new and fresh as every mile shall end,
So that you offer me each time, anew,
More gold and silver, all good coins and true.
It is an honour to each one that’s here
That you may have a competent pardoner
To give you carbon offsets to you acquit,
For all greenhouse gases you may emit.
