Agenda 21: UN driven goal of worldwide control and governance.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is claimed to be THE greenhouse gas villain. Al Gore, and many others, including the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), governments, industrial leaders and, of course, countless “NGOs” (Non Government Organizations) have proclaimed it for years.
Well, that proposition is becoming eroded even faster than your savings.
Ever since the 1980s or so, mainly under the auspices and guidance of the United Nations’ Program on Climate Change, the news about “Global Warming” (later on re-termed to “Climate Change”) became more dire each year. Finally, in 2007, the main perpetrators of the claim, Al Gore (former Vice President of the USA), and the IPCC were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their important work in disseminating and publicizing this earth-shattering news.
And the news was anything but good—in fact, it was outright disastrous. Whole cities were going to be inundated by rising sea levels in a few years, entire island nations were going to be wiped off the earth, the Arctic and Antarctic ice masses were going to melt faster than the hot buns leaving a baker’s shelf, the polar bears were all going to drown in short order, and so forth. The proclaimed global warming menace, supposedly caused by CO2, was going to kill untold millions of people, as portrayed—almost overnight (or, at least by 2012).
A couple of months ago, we celebrated the beginning of year 2012 in the Gregorian calendar, also known as one of the Years of the Water Dragon, which recur every 60 years according to Chinese mythology.
Despite the numerous claims by Gore and followers, the World is still intact. The atolls in the Pacific are still atolls (with some actually experiencing rising land or, relatively speaking, lower water levels), the polar bear population is about double or triple of what it was in the 1970s, the Antarctic’s ice cover appears to be growing (rather than shrinking) and the king penguins—supposedly on the brink of extinction (present population approximately two million) are increasing in numbers, New York City has not yet disappeared in the Atlantic’s water (as far as I can tell), and Al Gore and the NGOs are wondering when their doomsday reports will come true— if ever.
Even the IPCC has started to have doubts about their own prognostications from just a few years ago. The latest revelations are that Projected changes in climate extremes under different emissions scenarios generally do not strongly diverge in the coming two to three decades… In other words, the expected increase in atmospheric CO2 may not have any effect at all on the climate.
Carbon dioxide was widely claimed to be the cause of it all—whatever it was that was supposed to happen. Warming or cooling, frequent hurricanes or their absence, penguins disappearing or not, etc. It all was the fault of atmospheric CO2, more specifically not the large amounts added annually by volcanoes to the atmosphere, but the small fraction added by mankind. In short, anything but normal natural climate was due to mankind’s emissions of CO2 and its sinister spell. Unfortunately—for the proponents of that theory—some unexpected problems kept creeping into their forecasts and predictions, and making a mockery of it.
First, in late 2009 and again in 2011, several thousands of emails became widely available which were not known before. These emails, between the IPCC’s “lead authors” and other scientists on the IPCC teams were never meant or thought (by their originators) to become widely known. So, the writers had no reason to hold back. Well, these emails make for interesting reading. Collectively, they show a distasteful arrogance, abrogation and subversion of standard scientific principles, and outright criminal behavior by some. Despite recognizing the discordance between observations and models’ outputs, there appeared to be no need to reconcile the discrepancies. If any reconciliation were deemed necessary, they “massaged” the observational data to fit their theories. After all, their models and theories had to be right.
Second, despite the use of the best super computers running the latest models for disaster-minded minds, the Earth’s climate decided to give them a run-out. For the last decade or so, the average temperature in the Arctic went down – not up. Of course, the model(s) may not have been perfect, we are told. Naturally, if one omits the most important model variable (which is water vapour, not CO2), it will not give you good predictions for very long. It is bound to fail; the only question is when. If you’re lucky, your model may be proven in wrong in a decade or two (after which you may have retired anyway), but if you are unlucky, perhaps as soon as next year (probably a bummer for your climate modeling career).
Third, neither the Arctic nor the Antarctic have experienced any significant changes in the last few decades. A recent paper by Lenaerts et al. (2012) concludes that there were no discernible changes in the Antarctic snow and ice mass between 1979 and 2010. In the Arctic, the ice has no intention of disappearing either. Comparing the perennial ice cover in the Arctic, as published by the Department of Natural Resources in 1973, with today’s ice cover shows that there is no significant change.
Another “effect” ascribed to CO2 is “ocean acidification”. Well, nothing could be more wrong, as I have described in more detail previously. The simple fact is that the oceans and (most) freshwater lakes and rivers are alkaline (the opposite of acidic) because of CO2 in the atmosphere— not despite of CO2.
The real truth behind the entire CO2 myth is a totally different one. As described eloquently by H. Bachmann in his book Die Lüge der Klimakatastrophe — der Auftrag des Weltklimarates, the CO2 hysteria and, in fact the entire global warming hysteria (pardon me, climate change hysteria) initially was a machination by powerful financial elites. Their goal was simply financial gain. And the UN aided and abetted that scam, and still does. Therefore, in order to keep it going, that goal morphed recently into an all-encompassing (now UN driven) goal of worldwide control and governance. That is also why “global warming” gave way to “climate change” which is now giving way to Agenda 21 and its prescriptions.
