Translation: Nothing can be allowed to get in the way of global carbon taxation and massive reductions of individual liberty and quality of life for us peasants.

An Associated Press article has stunned some readers by suggesting that an ongoing global cooling trend is actually indicative of how quickly the planet is succumbing to man-made global warming.
The bizarre statement appeared in a panic-inducing article that emphasizes man-made warming fears and highlights how president elect Obama must tackle them with new laws including a carbon tax “cap-and-trade” system.
“Mother Nature, of course, is oblivious to the federal government’s machinations.” writes Seth Borenstein.
“Ironically, 2008 is on pace to be a slightly cooler year in a steadily rising temperature trend line. Experts say it’s thanks to a La Nina weather variation. While skeptics are already using it as evidence of some kind of cooling trend, it actually illustrates how fast the world is warming.”
The article goes on to state:
“Since Clinton’s inauguration, summer Arctic sea ice has lost the equivalent of Alaska, California and Texas. The 10 hottest years on record have occurred since Clinton’s second inauguration. Global warming is accelerating. Time is close to running out, and Obama knows it.”
Chief global warming propagandists the World Wildlife Fund released a report earlier this year claiming that Arctic ice was shrinking at an alarming rate, leading to forecasts that the “North Pole may be ice-free for first time this summer”.
Such predictions were debunked after it emerged that Arctic ice had actually expanded 30 per cent, an area the size of Germany, a fact conveniently overlooked by the WWF.
This has little to do with a “weather variation” and everything to do with the fact that the chief climate driver throughout eons of natural climate change – the sun – has exhibited a record barren spell of sunspots, which is causing the global cooling we are now witnessing all over the world. Conversely, throughout the 1990’s and in the early years of this decade, during which global warming reached its peak, the sun was more active than it had been at anytime in the previous 1,000 years.
The most recent period during which solar activity massively decreased was between 1645 and 1715, known as the Maunder Minimum, which also coincided with the geological period known as the Little Ice Age, when temperatures plummeted all over the world and the Thames in London was frozen solid.
The fact that the corporate media has openly abandoned any pretense of balance and fully thrown its weight behind the religious fervor of global warming – an orthodoxy that refuses to allow anyone to question its supreme and absolute dogma – again highlights how desperate the climate change PR assault has become in the face of over 650 scientists signing their names to a US Senate Minority report that challenges the contention of the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change that there is a scientific “consensus” on the causes of global warming.
Now that the real catalyst behind climate change, the sun, has dealt a blow to the global warming propagandists by daring to produce less sunspots, the climate change lobby will now merely claim that global cooling is a part of global warming, and that we must still lower our living standards and pay carbon taxes, while all the real environmental problems are ignored or actively made worse by the same power brokers demanding that we make sacrifices in the name of fighting a non-existent threat.
Let me get this straight. Although carbon dioxide emissions have been rising, the global temperature has not. It has either stayed static or fallen, and this is since at least 1998. You can’t state that quantity 1 is proportionate to temp 2 if temp 2 falls while quantity 1 rises. If there was any real connection between the two, the FACTS indicate that the relationship is inversely proportionate. Two factors that does match global temperatures is solar output and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, which has recently shifted into its cool mode.
Addressing the Washington Policymakers in Seattle, WA, Dr. Don Easterbrook said that shifting of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) from its warm mode to its cool mode virtually assures global cooling for the next 25-30 years and means that the global warming of the past 30 years is over. The announcement by NASA that the (PDO) had shifted from its warm mode to its cool mode (Fig. 1) is right on schedule as predicted by past climate and PDO changes (Easterbrook, 2001, 2006, 2007) and is not an oddity superimposed upon and masking the predicted severe warming by the IPCC. This has significant implications for the future and indicates that the IPCC climate models were wrong in their prediction of global temperatures soaring 1°F per decade for the rest of the century.
For fun one can actually look at the proportion of atmospheric co2 that is ‘made by man‘.
Joseph D’Aleo, the first Director of Meteorology at The Weather Channel and former chief of the American Meteorological Society’s Committee on Weather Analysis and Forecast, says that “carbon dioxide (CO2) is 0.000383 of our atmosphere by volume. . . Only 0.0275 of atmospheric CO2 is [man-made] in origin. . . We are responsible for 0.00001 of this atmosphere. If the atmosphere were a 100-story building, our [man-made] CO2 contribution today would be equivalent to the linoleum on the first floor.” Do we really want to spend a trillion dollars on linoleum?
And that is just for the United States. Also, one would think that these green fingered fascists would like co2, being an essential part of plant food. One would think that an increase in co2 would equal an increase in the amount of vegetation, which is has. From Watts Up With That:
Why the increase? Their 2004 study, and other more recent ones, point to the warming of the planet and the presence of CO2, a gas indispensable to plant life. CO2 is nature’s fertilizer, bathing the biota with its life-giving nutrients. Plants take the carbon from CO2 to bulk themselves up — carbon is the building block of life — and release the oxygen, which along with the plants, then sustain animal life. As summarized in a report last month, released along with a petition signed by 32,000 U. S. scientists who vouched for the benefits of CO2: “Higher CO2 enables plants to grow faster and larger and to live in drier climates. Plants provide food for animals, which are thereby also enhanced. The extent and diversity of plant and animal life have both increased substantially during the past half-century.”
The truth is though, that these so-called environmentalists are actually pushing the AGW agenda for their world government sponsors. This is not about saving the planet. This is about suppressing and controlling the human race, using various international agreements (none of which you agreed to) such as Agenda 21.
AGW is merely a selling point, as with all Hegelian dialectics, a problem must be sold to the masses for the controllers to be able to then sell a solution. That there is a ‘problem’ is more important than a true scientific investigation of it. They use just enough pseudo-science to convince the throng of idiots out there that it exists.
It’s like a chemical company releasing termites into a neighbourhood and then sending one of their subsidiaries in to offer the residents the solution to get rid of them. In theory it would be the same with viruses and so called ‘security software’. Same thing with smoke and a bee hive.
You get populations to follow your agenda by convincing them that your plan is the solution to their problem (which you created without their knowledge). Problem, reaction, solution.
This isn’t even complicated, all you need is logic and some time away from the television. Sit there in the dark with a beer and just think about things. You will be surprised at how many things in government and life don’t actually make sense.
By the way, there are plenty of scientists disputing the IPCC AGW dialectic.
