Carbon dioxide today commands a global free market trade value of some $126m per annum with an estimated future value of some 10 trillion dollars, all this money for an odourless, invisible naturally occurring non-polluting gas and the western world between its self is set to trade over 5.9 billion metric tons of HOT AIR for a lack of a better word in 2009, absurd isn't it?
Over the past 10 years, after investing over $5bn in intensive scientific research, what did the world actually get for its money; it got absolutely nothing, there's still no empirical data and no conclusive measurable result and NONE of this billions went into research to determine whether climate change was actually a natural event driven by climate itself! So what it did buy? Strangely enough a lot of dummies who can't follow or even understand the science but believe in it blindly via a well orchestrated visual media machine that doesn't require or demand thought, this clearly comes to the fore in a recent News24 voting booth which saw 78% of viewers seeing global warming as a real imminent threat.
The sad story about this debate is when realists even dare suggest there is no reason for panic, it is not greeted with "thank goodness tell me more" or even sighs of relief or a wipe of the brow, it is instantly and aggressively greeted with antagonism, insult and verbal abuse, it begs the question why?
Today the dummies are so indoctrinated that without question, study or a genuine understanding endorse the hypothesis that CO2 causes anthropogenic climate change categorically believing there is scientific consensus throughout the world. In reality the scientific world has no consensus in favour of anthropogenic climate change, although opinion polls do not determine truth, when more than 31 000 scientists of whom over 9 000 have PhDs sign a petition drafted by the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine clearly stating "There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide is causing or will in the foreseeable future cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere", not a single dummy sits up and takes note.
It repeats itself again at Pozna in Dec 2008, a further 650 scientists from across the world stood up and recanted the Global Warming theory as man-made ill, criticising the IPCC, UN and Al Gore equally. Summing up their collective comments "global warming is the worst scientific scandal in history" and again nobody gets excited. That is almost 32 000 more than well educated minds - and the list grows every day - who question the science and say NO, but the people still run with Green Peace WWF, NG,D, AP and a host more claiming these organisations truly represent the science.
It is a worrying global trend and clearly as the science languishes in books and research papers the visual propaganda machine stimulates the uneducated asking nothing more of them than the required emotive response which demands no thought, only the belief in what we show you.
This propaganda machine is driven by an unscientific organisation called IPCC, a fact that it concentrates its self only on external forcing (energy imbalance) and makes no references to internal natural forcing (natural climate) and spends no money researching natural variability of or within climate systems, this clearly results in circular reasoning and the conclusions drawn cannot be called science.
How do we know this? Read chapter 9 of the 4th IPCC report titled "Understanding and attributing climate change" which discusses external forcing 91 times and has absolutely no entry with the words internal forcing? As a result CO2 is labelled a toxic pollutant, when it is neither a pollutant nor is pollution part of the anthropogenic climate change saga, so dummies don't use it in an intelligent debate it merely shows ones ignorance.
But educated reasoning doesn't give easy, welcome real ice core data science covering a period of some 900 000 years of earth's temperature record showed something very interesting indeed. A rise in temperature preceded a rise in CO2 every time the earth warmed, exactly what the naysayers were saying all along, effect leads cause concluding CO2 is not a primary climate driver and with it finally out goes Mann et al dodgy hockey stick graph which really started the whole debacle off in 1998 and was the UN's, IPCC and of course Al Gore's big poster until recent depicting proof of man's contribution and he the cause of climate change. This poster, graph and science was officially dropped by both the IPCC and UN in 2007 and now it too pines away in the annuals of debunked science, but the dummies don't know this and joyously plod along flogging the poster.
So believe all you will, if you the dummy want your apocalypse, your day of reckoning or your rapture before reason, hey your choice. All I can then end with is fear more for the dawning of a new religion when the created becomes the creator and thinks he can control the weather. God help us and you then can only blame yourself.
I leave you with this thought: "Environmentalism has, in a mere fifty years, attained the hegemony, political influence and moral authority formerly accorded to the church. We have come the full circle to a pre-Enlightenment society, ruled by an officially sanctioned religion that is as dogmatic, inquisitorial and eschatological as medieval Christianity, where environmental scientists are the clergy, Green is the colour of purity and the central icon is not Jesus suffering on a cross but the image of a tortured planet dying for our sins."
