Global warming hysteria, the “acid rain” scare, and other money-making megamyths!

Professor Larry Bell lays out a history of corrupted science dating to the acid rain scare that enriched companies through the sale of sulfur dioxide credits -- and the desire of companies like Enron, politicians like Al Gore, and richly rewarded scientists like James Hansen to equally profit from the sale of carbon dioxide credits. He further shows how these profiteers have fed their greed through false linkages between hurricanes and glaciers and carbon dioxide emissions. The hope is that the "man in the street" will be fed up with these charlatans before they do permanent damage to the reputation of good science everywhere.

Alarmists feverish over sea levels

It seems that Greens will make up just about any scary scenario they can hoodwink people with so that they can extend their own power and influence over an ignorant society. This is nothing new. "The sky is falling!" -- the story of Chicken Little -- goes back at least 25 centures, we are told. Facts matter little to these propagandists, who often believe their own lies after repeating them so often. But the truth is that sea level rise -- a natural phenomenon -- has slowed of late and poses little or no threat to any current land mass on the planet.
