The UN global warming hoax is slowly dying!

Major media like Business Week and The New York Times are trying to keep the hoax alive, but people are not buying it any more!

In 2007 Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner was interviewed on the subject of sea levels. He is the head of the Paleogeophysics and Geodynamics Department at Stockholm University in Sweden. He is past president (1999-2003) of the INQUA Commission on Sea Level Changes and Coastal Evolution, and leader of the Maldives Sea Level Project. Dr. Mörner has been studying the sea level and its effects on coastal areas for some 35 years.

“You have VanuatuVanuatu [see [photo], and also in the Pacific, north of New Zealand and Fiji— there is the island Tegua. They said they had to evacuate it, because the sea level was rising. But again, you look at the tide-gauge record: There is absolutely no signal that the sea level is rising. If anything, you could say that maybe the tide is lowering a little bit, but absolutely no rising.”

The most recent edition of Bloomberg Businessweek features a cover that says, “This entire country is about to be wiped out by climate change. It won’t last.”  It is devoted to Kribati, a Pacific island chain, and it is a total lie.

The media has been a co-conspirator to the global warming hoax and I take this latest example as one that reveals its utter desperation to maintain the greatest hoax of the modern era. The facts mean nothing to them. Real science means nothing to them. But reality is intruding on theirs and the United Nations environmental program just wrapped up Conference of Parties-19 in Warsaw, where more nations are now in open revolt.

ruckerberlin Writing from the conference was Craig Rucker, Executive Director of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), a think tank that has helped organize the Poles to protest this travesty. “Poland has been bullied for decades and they are not about to cede their energy independence to Russia, the UN, or anyone. Nor should they.”

On November 21, Rucker reported that “COP-19 was shocked when China led a block of 132 nations in a walkout over ‘loss and damage.’ Loss and damage is a completely bogus concept that developed nations should be legally liable when natural disasters strike developing nations. There is of course no meaningful scientific or historical link that Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda was abnormal and with no global warming link.”

We owe a debt of gratitude as well to The Heartland Institute, a Chicago-based free market think tank, that has sponsored eight international conferences on global warming since 2008 and recently released a report,“Global Warming Reconsidered II.” Like CFACT, Heartland has been on the forefront of those seeking to educate the public regarding the phony science claims put forth.

COP-19 was one more UN conference leading up to a new version of the Kyoto Protocol that required nations that signed onto it to reduce their so-called greenhouse gas emissions. The final push will come in 2015 in Paris.

Nations that did sign on—the U.S. Senate unanimously refused to ratify the treaty when the Protocol was initially introduced in 1997—are realizing the economic harm that it imposed on them. The same afternoon of the China-led walkout, Poland announced that it had fired its environmental minister who is also the president of the UN conference, two days before the conference was supposed to end!

The Protocol, as is the entire global warming aka climate change hoax, is based on the lie that carbon dioxide (CO2) in the Earth’s atmosphere is causing it to warm. In recent years CO2 has increased in the atmosphere and the Earth, some 15 or more years ago, entered a cooling cycle. It is getting colder.

“Never underestimate what a gathering of bureaucrats and carbon profiteers might accomplish when after your money”, warned Rucker.

A November 20 article in The Daily Caller reported, “It’s worth noting that U.S. diplomats were specifically instructed by the Obama Administration to oppose any attempts to create an independent fund for climate reparations from rich countries to poor countries.”

Three days later, the Administration announced that it now supports all nations declaring their targets for reducing CO2 emissions before 2015. Rucker warns that this now clears “the path for the UN to adopt a full climate treaty and successor to the Kyoto Protocol in 2015.” If the Senate is not controlled by Republicans at that point, it would permit the administration to sign onto a treaty. The harm to the economy would be incalculable. abbottvictory

Australia’s Prime Minister Tony Abbott, elected recently to undo the damage of a carbon tax, told the Washington Post: “Despite a carbon tax of $37 a ton by 2020, Australia’s domestic emissions were going up, not down. The carbon tax was basically socialism masquerading as environmentalism and that’s why it’s going to get abolished.” Australia did not send a representative to COP-19.  Canada dropped out of the Protocol in recent years. Japan is abandoning the UN’s greenhouse gas emission reduction levels by allowing them to grow by 3%.

Nation by nation, the UN global warming hoax is being abandoned for the obvious reason that it is a lie perpetrated to transfer wealth from the developed nations to those less developed. It was never about saving the Earth from a global warming; that was a lie from start to finish.

Some journalists are trying to tell the truth, but magazines like BusinessWeek and newspapers like The New York Times continue to keep the hoax alive. An informed population, not just in the United States, but increasingly worldwide, will ensure that it dies a long overdue death.

    Doesn’t the House have to vote on any such international agreement in addition to the Senate?

    • HansMengis

      No. Only the Senate needs to approve treaties. That’s because the Senate is supposed to represent the state governments. We know of course that it doesn’t though. If it did, it would be under Republican control. I think we should return the selection of senators back to state governments for a number of reasons. This just being one of them.

      • Christopher Hausen

        You are correct that only the U. S. Senate needs to approve a treaty, before all parties involved ratify it. However; that approval requires a two-thirds majority vote in the Senate.

    This hoax can’t die fast enough.

    My comment on: http://www.cfact.org/2013/11/25/the-un-global-warming-hoax-is-slowly-dying/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+cfact+%28CFACT%29 is as follows: A long time ago I already wrote in a “comment” that in my 80 years ‒since more than 70 years‒ I lived and observed in two European countries that NO sea level rise had happened!
    So it is not only the left-leaning press which gives malevolent information, but as well the most stupid liar ever to have entered the US White House.
    Barry Hussein Obama is still telling the world population that CO2 is a dangerous gas which causes Global Warming and Global Climate Change, although even slightly informed people know that CO2 is absolutely indispensable for all life on earth.
    But Barry the clown doesn’t know that!
    Or should I say: doesn’t want to know, because it interferes with his stated goal to destroy the US and bring his communist and islamist ideologies to the world.
    It might be useful to reproduce the following once more: Earth’s GLOBAL CLIMATE is for at least 95% decided by our sun’s activity (solar flairs changing the earth’s magnetic field) and the quantity of cosmic rays (nano particles) entering the earth’s
    atmosphere ‒producing more or less cloud cover, which causes global temperatures respectively to fall or rise‒ and consequently is not influenced by whatever quantity of CO2 there might be in our atmosphere.
    CO2 ‒natural and manmade (only 0,001152% ≈ nil)‒ is an inert, colorless, tasteless, innocuous, very beneficial and indispensable “GREEN” gas.

    Money is a side issue. It is power they want and the facts will not stand in their way. Keep pushing or they will call it something else and try again and again.

    • Jane Wegener

      Money is not a side issue it is in fact the main and only issue. Money is the reason that “Scientific Studies” were supported to push global warming in the first place. Al Gore as well as others have made millions on junk science and Obama is still pushing it. Trading carbon credits is a huge industry and is being pushed as many including the Clintons are banking on huge financial benefit. However the truth is coming out but don’t think if will effect Obamas “green energy” agenda. I expect his EPA to push regulations that will kill jobs and do great harm to the middle class and the economy…as they have been doing for the last 5 years. Obama has filled his cabinet and agencies with radicals and we the people will pay dearly for years to come. All of his agencies operate with impunity and congress has no authority over them. What ever he can’t get thru congress he used Executive Orders to put his agenda in place. Now that Reid has invoked the Nuclear Options his judges will be pushed thru and any future lawsuits will be in vain. America is no longer a free country.

        DIDOS,
        I would only add that “EXECUTIVE ORDER” is a euphuism for “DICTATOR”. The word dictator
        comes from the root word dictate by which a leader needs only to write-out
        whatever law he wants, then sign the law and therefore eliminates democratic debate
        or to use another progressive (also a euphuism) catch phrase….GRID LOCK! All of
        the great DICTATORS throughout history have seized power using this excuse!

  • Solardiamond

    You will not like Al Gore when he’s angry!

  • Concerned citizen

    Not to change the subject..but all of this seems like chasing fleas in a flea circus..ha ha. I am no expert and like most of you I want what’s best for the sake of future generations. My education started in engineering at Purdue Univ. IN. We engineers are trained to approach every task by listing all the variables and related variables of a
    given problem. CO2 is merely a result. Its cause and effect to climate change
    can be demonstrated in simple experiments with few variables, but the earth is
    not a simple model and doesn’t lend itself to such simplification. Also, don’t forget
    the sun which affects the whole model in ways we still do not fully understand.
    I think the real elephant in the room is the population explosion. I have read many
    articles and no one addresses this key factor. I think the reason they don’t
    mention it is because it has no simple solution, humanly, and must be
    voluntary. Many things we do as human beings are contrary to natural selection
    or nature itself. I myself am not advocating changes to this paradigm, but if
    we are going to solve these very complicated problems, we must start being very
    frank in our discussions. In a time of extreme political correctness that
    discussion gets harder each day.
