Hoax , Myth or Fact!

We face a scientific dilemma of mammoth proportions.  Are we, as a human race on this earth, in danger of catastrophic erosion of our habitat because of the ongoing global warming?

Proponents of this theory prefer to call it “climate change” now, since “the world is currently experiencing some of the colder weather in decades”.

Scientists are bound by a sense of duty to seek and record truths, honesty and integrity. What if it is not always so?  When science is mingled with politics and politics by nature is deceitful, shifty and self-serving, the result is no longer pure science. 

The alarm bell of extinction has been ringing for decades led by the United Nations, which has put it in centre stage with its Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, (IPCC), the American Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the EU, the UK and an army of heads of state around the globe. 

It became the cause célèbre of the Western media, vehement believers in this calamitous threat. The IPCC involved 2,000 scientists from over 10 nations. However, 1,700 basic and applied scientists signed a petition negating the IPCC, Why were they ignored? And when the IPCC turned around and admitted it was not certain about its own conclusions. Why was that hidden under the rug?

Even National Aeronautic & Space Administration (NASA), has shifted gears from global cooling to global warming, back to global cooling. Strange.

Naturally, we cannot dismiss the influence of Al Gore, once vice-president of the US. He made a film about global warming concentrating on warmer spots where ice was melting, titled The Inconvenient Truth. Miraculously he won an Oscar and a Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. That is not all. Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007… and for what? Oh, it made him rich.

This could well be the biggest hoax in history.

Shortly after the global warming mania, scientists at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unity (CRU), the leading centre for reconstructing climate and temperature, admitted throwing away much of the original temperature data on which their predictions of global warming was based. Why? That was inadmissible. What were they trying to hide? 

Scientists and other sceptic academics were demanding the data, unable to check basic calculations that claim to show a long-term rise in temperature. Hidden or lost, why reveal such a scandalous error? It is the law in Britain.

 The “Freedom of Information” legislation forces such organisations to reveal their information on request. Sceptics, universities and institutes were unable to examine how the data was compiled. It was known as the “climate-gate” scandal.

How embarrassing to all global warming devotees — the head of the CRU stepped down and investigations were unending.

Now, here we go again, swinging with the climate change pendulum.

What kind of bogus science are we being fed? Is global warming a reality or a convenient political theory?  

Comparisons of historic global climate warming and cooling, show a strong correlation with sun spot activity and the Pacific Ocean temperatures. The Pacific Ocean switches back and forth between cold and warm temperatures every 25-30 years, known as the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO). Similar cooling of the North Atlantic Oscillation virtually assures decades of cooling.

Solid evidence negates the presence of global warming, therefore it is not surprising that more scientists are publishing books claiming the theory as a hoax. Senator James Inhofe authored a book titled The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future. Writer Larry Bell’s Climate of Corruption: Politics and Power: Behind the Global Warming Hoax again brings politics in the formula, leaving us lost and confused. Who, what, when and how are making us dizzy. 

Perhaps we can find an answer to why they have chosen global warming as a universal concern without conclusive proof backed by scientific evidence.

The powers that be, who have gained tens of millions of dollars off the global warming scare, stand to gain more through investments in alternative fuel and green energy industries.

By the by, Gore just sold his house for $100 million, probably to buy a bigger one and he is a big investor in solar, wind, corn or any other energy than the oil we are now using.

We can accept Gore lying, but the UN’s IPCC, series of quasi-scientific reports by 1,500 quasi-scientists who emphasised fears, falsehoods and fraudulent data. Shame.

What is this world coming to? Global warming — we guess.

Scientists make our world today. Everything we use or own was invented or discovered by a scientist. We trust them and hold them in high esteem.

Just look around you — telephones, lap-tops, radios, automobiles, trains, planes, rockets, vaccines, antibiotics, X rays, MIRs, etc. Look in the kitchens…the oven, the microwave, the washing machine et al.         

Why, even our foods are guided by nutritionists to keep us healthy and fit. 

They have contributed immensely to our lives and our comforts, our well-being and our longevity.

Who then are those scientists manipulating data, changing numbers, hiding evidence, spreading lies and totally disregarding cyclical historic changes in the earth’s climate.

It is obvious we are not convinced of this global warming, not because we refuse to, we need conclusive, indisputable scientific evidence from our scientists.

It could all be true… and truth is all we seek… no myths, no plots, no conspiracies, no politics.

Our politicians lie, not great statesmen or great scientists.


“Truth has no special time of its own. Its hour is now —always.”

Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)
