'Global Warming’ Fear is about Money Not Science

The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) is spending $1.5 million to defeat five of the most outspoken members of the House of Representatives who believe man-made global warming is a hoax.

The campaign, called "Defeat the Flat Earth Five" will focus on running TV, mail and phone initiatives to spread the message that the members are ignoring science and out of touch with what most Americans believe.

Equating these anti-global warming congressmen with a belief in a flat earth shows how the folks at the LCV are as out of touch with the history of science as they are with the science behind climate change (it changes every day) since no one of any reputation ever believed in a flat earth.

In the end, it’s not about science; it’s about government (tax-payer) grant money.

Scientists live or die by grant money. A long time ago universities began to realize that there's big money to be made in doing research for the government.

Campus protests in the 1960s and early 1970s were often directed at schools that were doing work for the "Military-Industrial Complex." The Sterling Hall Bombing that occurred on the campus of the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1970 was committed by four young people as a protest against the University's research connections with the US military during the Vietnam War. It resulted in the death of a university physics researcher. The bombers were after the Army Math Research Center (AMRC) that was housed in the building.

The Manhattan Project, which began in 1939, was led and developed by university professors. The Project eventually employed more than 130,000 people and cost nearly $2 billion ($22 billion in current value). The majority of the money came from the Federal government.

Research is big business that is most often driven by ideology. Those who know how to write the grants get the money. A 2005 study in the journal Nature surveyed 3247 US researchers who were all publicly funded by the National Institutes of Health which is an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services and is the primary agency of the United States government responsible for biomedical and health-related research. It consists of 27 separate institutes and centers. Out of the scientists questioned, 15.5% admitted to altering design, methodology or results of their studies due to pressure of an external funding source.

With this very brief background study, should we be surprised if scientists who are pushing Global Warming as a man-made disaster would be reluctant to criticize the claim if they knew their funding would be cut? There are big bucks in Global Warming. Those who are pushing it are mostly ideologues with a larger political agenda.

Most Americans have an idealized opinion of scientists, that they are somehow detached from the mundane world of power, prestige, and fortune. If you believe this, then you also believe that Tiger Woods only cares about golf and the purity of the sport. Evolutionist Stephen Jay Gould has written:

“The stereotype of a fully rational and objective ‘scientific method,’ with individual scientists as logical (and interchangeable) robots, is self-serving mythology.”[1]

Scientists are just like everybody else. They want the same things.

We shouldn’t be surprised that climate scientists might fudge the evidence to keep the grant money coming in. Who’s really getting harmed? Anyway, the kids need new shoes and an investment portfolio so they can get into the best universities so they can work for a university that gets grant money.

If these scientists and politicians were really concerned about Global Warming, would 15,000 delegates and officials, 5,000 journalists, and 98 world leaders meet in far way places for a Climate Summit?[2] Why not set up a teleconferencing system? Really show the world what can be done to “save the planet.”

More than 1200 limos were called into service for a meeting in Copenhagen in 2009. Majken Friss Jorgensen, managing director of Copenhagen’s biggest limousine company, said that there weren’t  enough limos in the country to fulfill the demand. “We’re having to drive them in hundreds of miles from Germany and Sweden,” she says. This does not count the huge carbon footprint that was created by the number of private jets (more than 140) that were used. The eleven-day conference, including the participants’ travel, created a total of 41,000 tons of “carbon dioxide equivalent.”

It’s all a scam. Newsweek “did a cover issue warning us of global cooling on April 28, 1975. And The New York Times, Aug. 14, 1976, reported ‘many signs that Earth may be headed for another ice age.’” In 1974, the National Science Board announced: “During the last 20 to 30 years, world temperature has fallen, irregularly at first but more sharply over the last decade. Judging from the record of the past interglacial ages, the present time of high temperatures should be drawing to an end . . . leading into the next ice age.” Gary Sutton, writing in an online article for Forbes, makes the point:

You can't blame these scientists for sucking up to the fed’s mantra du jour. Scientists live off grants. Remember how Galileo recanted his preaching about the earth revolving around the sun? He, of course, was about to be barbecued by his leaders. Today’s scientists merely lose their cash flow. Threats work.[3]

Of course, they can be blamed when they (1) claim that they are doing real science, (2) there is no contrary evidence, and (3) what contrary evidence they do find they suppress it. So the next time someone dogmatically asserts that the majority of scientists believe in Global Warming, ask your antagonist how much grant money he’s getting?

    “The stereotype of a fully rational and objective ‘scientific method,’ with individual scientists as logical (and interchangeable) robots, is self-serving mythology.”
    .....Stephen Jay Gould, evolutionist.

    I think this is the only time I've ever agreed with Gould.

    Like DeMar said...Global warming is all about the money and alot of people (can you say Al Gore) have gotten filthy rich from it. And the scientists behind it are savvy enough to know when they have a cash cow in their lab.

    The love of money is the root of all evil. (1 Tim 6:10) and we seeing it in academia is no surprise.

    • The__Bobster

      The scientific method was never used for AGW because the warmers knew it would never pass the test. Instead, they demonize and siilence those who would question it.

      • JoJo58

        Exactly. Also, if you ever noticed who the players were at the Kyoto Protocol weren't even scientists, but a bunch of professors with degrees that had nothing to do with earth science. Being lefties, they managed to bully scientists into validating their theories, and if they didn't, they would ruin their careers. And they say conservatives are haters. Go figure.

  • deeme

    I can not believe I just read we sent billions to other countries for global warming research..They will say anything you want them to say for the billions..The biggest scam ever used. to transfer money and we are threatening to not paying our military..This is shameful..The priorities of these people never include the safety and well being of America.

    The global warming conspiracy needs to be put in perspective to be properly understood. This far-left attack by government-paid drones started in the 1970′s with the global cooling scam: we should disarm our nuclear bombers and fill them with soot to be spread over the poles and so prevent those new glaciers from descending south and crushing the New York skyscrapers to dust. When that did not work the same fakers invented the global warming hoax in the 1990′s; we should nationalize all industries and organize a UN-sponsored world socialist government based on “social justice” with the fakers in charge. What with 12 years of substantial cooling the fakers switched to the climate change flimflam in the 2000′s; so whatever happens we should…see above under the global warming hoax. And now we are faced with the cap & trade power grab – but the aim is the same as above. Our socialists, Marxists, communists, Hollywood stars, university professors in social and political “sciences”, and environmentalists are all clamoring for action while spurring President Obama ("Tomorrow the oceans will stop rising and the planet will start healing") and his 35 czars/commissars to undertake immediate measures to save the planet – with the same aims as described above.
    It is evident from the above quote that our President believes himself to be either Jesus come back to Earth, or at least the 12th Imam so ardently desired by that jihadist terrorist Ahmadinejad. …see above under the global warming hoax. And now we are faced with the cap & trade power grab – but the aim is the same as above. Our socialists, Marxists, communists, Hollywood stars, university professors in social and political “sciences”, and environmentalists (i.e., eco-Nazis) are all clamoring for action while spurring President Obama ("Tomorrow the oceans will stop rising and the planet will start healing") and his 35 czars/commissars to undertake immediate measures to save the planet – with the same aims as described above. Like to the Pinocchio in the fable, Obama’s nose grows longer with every lie he pronounces, while jumping up the steps to his teleprompter like a marionette.
    Another thing ignored is the “Global Warming Petition” (see Internet) where 31,487 independent US scientists (including 9,029 of them with PhD degrees) dispute decisively the findings of the UN-sponsored panel; also ignored is the “Manhattan Declaration on Climate Change” (see also Internet) where a smaller number of competent world scientists, about 712, including 142 pure climatologists, state the same – i.e., that the man-caused catastrophic global warming is a farce. The books by Christopher Horner, Robert Carter, Patrick Michaels, Lawrence Solomon, John Berlau, Steven Milloy, Ian Murray, Christopher Booker, R. C. Balling, D. Avery, S. F. Singer, Brian Sussman, and AW Montford describing the lies, fakes, phony data, opposite conclusions, redacting by UN political hacks, reverse graphs, etc., have exposed this far-left propaganda in painful detail. In the case of the above mentioned Petition, several "environmentalists" had submitted phony names with phony credentials in order to sabotage that effort. It took several years of painstaking and expensive effort (that effort cost us more private money, no oil money there) to clean up the list from those saboteurs and verify all academic and professional data of the signatories.
    To put this whole conspiracy in terms of numbers, let me say that the projected world-threatening increase of carbon dioxide of 100 ppm (parts per million) by the end of this century would increase thermal absorptivity of the atmosphere by one-eighth of one percent; that is the definition of something totally negligible. On the other hand the sun cycles of cooling and heating are many thousands of times more powerful with regard to the carbon dioxide in the air; when the sun is in its cold cycle the oceans absorb billions of tons of it; and when the sun heats up the oceans release the carbon dioxide in quantities many thousands of times bigger than anything the mankind could produce. To illustrate this point in more accessible terms to somebody who is not a climatologist or a scientist or an engineer; the argument of catastrophic anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming issued by our panic driven socialist/marxist government-paid hacks is like saying that a burp of a lonely wolf in Alaska will transform Florida into a Sahara-like desert - tomorrow! Perhaps an even better example would be to argue that the Pissing Boy in Bruxelles will inundate the continents by the end of the week. As for that bloviating gasbag and “climatologist” Al Gore, Dr. James Hansen with his tirades designed to get him more taxpayers’ money and who started his career by the global cooling scam in the 1970’s, as well as for Dr. Mann who inverted cause and effect in his "studies", for Phil Jones who destroyed faked data, and for the corrupt Maurice Strong who started the whole affair - they should be brought to the International Court in The Hague on charges of crimes against humanity.

    Yes we continue to waste our money supporting a concept that has been proven wrong time and again. Stop the waste target these funds for cutting. Nature has been cycling through various climates since time began and mankind will not be able to have any appreciable influence as long as they do not attempt to destroy the planet through a nuclear war.

It named names, listed sources told how Al Gore made millions off of stupid people, how the "hockey stick" theory is a joke (they left out data that didn't correlate with their agenda) how they omitted using weather stations in the polar regions, etc, and how none of the "proof" cited by the greens could be replicated in ANY lab, ANYWHERE in the world (that's necessary in order to be considered a scientific law) so all the greens are doing is huffing and puffing over THEORY and what THEY think (and their stupid theories have been proven to have so many holes in them it's stupid). The book also mentioned how global warming was a power grab, and a conspiracy...then lo and behold two years later the email scandal occurred.

    Global Warming: But Not as They Say

    February 2012
    If evolution is the mother of all lies, some of her daughters are strange. And all contain elements of truth. So it is with global warming. True science documents that climate cycles have existed for centuries. That is the element of truth. But Satan tries to fit it into his agenda.

    Since man is the apex of evolution’s process, then he must be to blame for this “climate change.” “At least,” reasons Satan, “if we can convince the world that this is so, we can stop progress that promotes the spread of the gospel and expand worship of the creature rather than the Creator. (See Romans 1:25.)

    The industrialized nations have become wealthy beyond any other time in history. Much of that wealth has been used by Christians to spread the gospel, through foreign missions, home missions, millions of inexpensive bibles and other literature, TV and radio, and most recently the internet.

    The devil has watched helplessly as Matt. 24:14 is being fulfilled. His only response is to push more lies. Global warming may be happening as part of the natural cycle of the universe. But the idea that man is causing it is far from proven. In fact, new research and the exposure of the “climategate” emails seriously damages that claim.

    And Satan’s fingerprints are all over it. If successful, the move to “alternate energy sources” will severely limit the “developed world’s” ability to promote the gospel.

    One of the quirkiest twists to Satan’s lies is just beginning to show up in the “rights of nature” movement. The logic is: since we all evolved, man is just another creature along with all the other animals —and plants. One is no better than the other. To illustrate the point Wesley J. Smith of tothesource.org paraphrased the Declaration of Independence from the rights-of-nature viewpoint: "We hold these truths to be self-evident," Thomas Jefferson wrote, "that all flora and fauna are created equal, that mountains are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights."

    As ridiculous as this seems, the goal is the same: to limit development of natural resources so that man is poorer and less able to promote the gospel. The movement has gained enough clout that “rights of nature” are written into the constitutions of Ecuador and Bolivia. Several municipalities in the U.S. have passed laws that allow citizens to sue in court for the protection of the rights of trees and other ecosystems against development of the land by the owners.

    Of course, another big lie that underlies this whole thing, is that, since the earth “evolved,” over millions of years, then we must develop a “sustainable” planet for infinite future generations. Satan has persuaded the Western World to abandon the Bible and its teaching that the earth is young and will soon be replaced.

    To understand the nature of the lies that we see, we must understand Satan’s main goals: to kill, steal and destroy. (See John 10:10.) Kill as many people as possible, steal as much wealth as possible to limit spread of the gospel and destroy everything else.

    As believers, we are obligated to refute Satan’s lies at every opportunity with the truth of God’s word. The new Chick tract, Global Warming, presents this truth that God is really in charge of the planet. The nations that forget God and try to fix things themselves are swallowing Satan’s lies and will deserve His soon coming judgment. This is a solemn warning to anyone who is not on God’s side on these issues. For anyone who will listen, it is a strong call to repentance. For those who reject, their “warming” will be eternal, not just “global.”

    It's a shame that the earth is suffering from what we call a greenhouse effect. Crap- I don't know how we're going to deal with the extra vegetables, and vegetation in general that come similar to a greenhouse. I mean- Canadians shoudl not be able to grow vegetables- they should have to buy them from Mexico just like we do. And if Greenland were to become Green again- why that would just screw up the world economy.
    Please show me one shred of evidence that the earth is warming. And don't use the old "it's warmed up by 1 degree over the last 100 years" crap- I happen to know that thermometers were not accurate enough, nor placed in enough spots on the earth to make that claim. And don't then try to fall back on the ice-melt samples. Those are only accurate to about +/- 10 degrees.

    Since we have not warmed in over 15 years while CO2 continues to increase at a rock steady rate and the oceans cool, there clearly is no CO2-caused warming. Add to this the thermodynamic FACT that CO2 at triple current levels would cause no detectable warming and you have defined a scam.

    It is time to dry up the gravy train and tell all of these money-hungry "scientists" to go find new projects in real science, if they can. The sad part is that we have so many scientists willing to flush their integrity down the crapper.

    No one can take your integrity. Only you can give it away. Once given away it is nearly impossible to recover.

  • TexasOlTimer

    Back in the really ol' days leading up to about 1310 A.D., the weather was considerably warmer than it is today. Northern England was growing grapes for wine that had the French whining about the competition. Greenland was named for what it was - green. The Norse were settling there, farming and raising families. Ships came from Norway bringing supplies. Then a strange thing happened about 1310. The climate began to change. By 1350 there was so much ice and snow in Greenland and the sea in between it and their homeland that ships could no longer navigate the waters to bring supplies. The Norse died out because they refused to eat the .. ugh!.. blubber and other foods that the natives ate. This lasted for a number of centuries. In the 1800s they had annual winter festivals in London on the frozen Thames (note our old-fashion Christmas cards showing them ice skating on it). This whole period of time did not fit into the theory of "global warming" so, conveniently, the so-called scientists simply left it out. They also apparently left out the cooling trend of the 1970s!

    Temperature regulates the amount of the minute amount of CO2 in our atmosphere (thus it is called a "trace element") not CO2 regulating the temperature. The sun and sun spots have more to do with our climate than we ever can. Our EPA has already named CO2 as a hazardous material. We breath out CO2 and the plants take it in, releasing oxygen. Scary?

    It is the UN that has been pushing the global warming agenda. It's the scientists and universities that are doing it for the money. Those that would want to implement Agenda 21 know that to control countries, first control their environment.

      15-20 years later, these same organizations - if not the same people that testified before Congress in the early 80s were testifying again that we need to cool the earth - right at the time the earth started cooling again!!!

    Global Warming has become the religion of Geocalorianism. While we do have freedom of religion, we have separation of church and state, so the government should be prohibited from funding Geocalorian studies and projects.
    Geocalorianisms chief doctrinal structure of "revealed truth."
    Mankind exhales carbon dioxide. it is a sort of original sin, since this is an inborn genetically controlled trait. The God Geocalorus is angered by this, and will turn the world into a burning hell as vengeance for sin against his divine majesty. In order to escape total destruction, all humankind must seek atonement through the mediation of Geocalorian priests, who charge handsomely for absolution, and who are exempt from any of the penalties of sin that the rest of mankind suffers. That's how religion works.
    PRAYER FOR ABSOLUTION
    O Great Geocalorus, we come to thee,
    Trusting not in our own righteousness,
    But in they manifold and great mercies.
    Thou, who hast sent thy son, Al Gore
    For to save us from our eternal sin.
    We vouchsafe to thee our lives, and all our money
    And property for the worship of thy holy name.
    Again, and again, there is no end.

    They travel in private planes and use ridiculous amounts of fuel, will they tell us we need to get 'more fuel efficient cars'.
    They are a bunch of hypocrites!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This whole fiasco is just more evidence that government must get out of extra-constitutional activities.

    There's no constitutional provision for the federal government to do research or any of a host of things it does. Since it does them all poorly, it would be far better to let private entities (not necessarily "private enterprise, but it could be) handle them.

    Government does everything poorly, but there are things it should do. By diverting resources away from these thing, it does them even more poorly than otherwise would be the case. Drop the extra crap and get back to defending the rights of citizens and the borders. That would be a good start.

    Mr. O'bama, where are the Jobs?

    Why don't these guys stop saying that "scientists suppress opposing evidence" and actually show what this evidence is? It's always the same story. They just want to get the spotlight, but sorry: no hard evidence, no credibility. Pointing out that the climate summit had a rather large carbon footprint does't disproof anything.
    -What evidence did they forge?
    -What evidence did they ignore?

    Major questions left unanswered... i wonder why...
