The April 28th , 1975 issue of NEWSWEEK proposed solutions to climate change in an article that included outlawing the internal combustion engine. At that time their concern was Global Cooling not Warming

The January 31 , 1977 cover of TIME magazine featured a story “How to Survive The Coming Ice Age. It included ‘facts’ such as Scientists predict that the temperature of the earth could drop by 20 degrees Fahrenheit due to man-made global cooling. Dr. Murray Mitchell of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration warned, “the drop in temperature between 1945 and 1968 had taken us one sixth of the way to the next Ice Age temperature.”

Global Cooling gained considerable traction with the general public, but instead of cooling as predicted by climate change advocates, the average temperature of the Earth started to increase. Clearly something had to be done to rescue the climate change agenda from utter disaster. Enter Al Gore to the rescue.

Al Gore Sr., a powerful Senator from Tennessee saw to it that his son was elected to the House of Representatives serving from 1977 to 1985 then on to the Senate from 1985 to 1993. The issue that carried him forward was the conviction that the Earth would perish were we not to eliminate fossil fuels. He advanced to Vice President under Clinton where he was able to enact policies and direct funding to ensure the climate change agenda became a top priority of the United States government.

A cornerstone of Gore’s strategy was to insure that all high ranking officials in any government agency, having any intersection with policies of funding relating to climate change, were in line with his vision. These agencies included the Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Education, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The nation has suffered as a result.

An example of his power was shown when Dr. William Happer, Director of Energy Research at the Department of Energy, testified before Congress in 1993 that scientific data simply did not support the hypothesis of man-made global warming. Gore saw to it that Happer was immediately fired. Fortunately, President Trump has brought him back to the Whitehouse as Senior Scientist for the National Security Council

Al Gore leveraged his high visibility, his movie awards, his so-called Nobel Prize, into a personal fortune. When he ended his tenure as Vice President in 2001, his net worth was $2 million. By 2013 his net worth, calculated in the the 2015 book “Government Zero”, exceeded $300 million..

Gore’s movie. An Inconvenient Truth, provided a series of graphic images showing the apocalyptic consequences that have been predicted if man-made global warming, based on the combustion of fossil fuels, continues. Images include the melting of glaciers, dying polar bears, inundation of coastal cities by massive floods, cities wiped out by hurricanes and tornadoes, food supplies wiped out by droughts.

After watching this compelling piece of climate change propaganda, it is no wonder that an entire generation has come to fear what the future might hold. Americans are constantly being told that they should feel guilty for driving their cars or using any energy to heat their homes or power their businesses. Renewable energy sources such and wind and solar represent the only hope for saving the planet.

Everything on this climate change agenda is either a lie or gross distortion of the truth. The media and government financed climate scientists have been using every means at their disposal to create what has become THE MYTHOLOGY OF GLOBAL WARMING, which is the title of an excellent new nook by Dr. Bruce Bunker. It is time to stop and ponder the absurdity of this engineered delusion and recognize that a tiny extra amount of life giving carbon dioxide is no threat to humanity, but purveyors of these falsehoods are.
