The Man-Made-Trillion-Dollar-Climate Warming Hoax
The following items are excerpted from two recent articles on climate change that the media and pundits alike ignored. Indeed, Pundits like Paul Krugman and US leaders like Sen.Lindsay Graham are making a push to force Pres. Trump to change his position and to enact curbs on the use of fossil fuels. Almost all of the Democratic candidates for president take the same position. Countries around the world have already spent hundreds of billions of dollars to promote wind and solar sources of energy and continue to subsidizes electric vehicles making hundreds of millionaires.

cjusting for the cloud coverage factor and accounting for greenhouse gas emissions, the researchers found that mankind is simply not having much of an effect on the Earth’s temperature.
If we pay attention to the fact that only a small part of the increased CO2 concentration is anthropogenic, we have to recognize that the anthropogenic climate change does not exist in practice.
The study’s authors make a hard distinction between the type of model favored by climate scientists at the IPCC and genuine evidence, stating “We do not consider computational results as experimental evidence,” noting that the models often yield contradictory conclusions.
The second article appeared on Jul 11 2019, and is referred to by RT and is entitled:
“Political climate models are all wrong, new report claim …

Here is a quote from professor Masayuki Hyodo, the lead researcher on the Japanese report …
This study provides an opportunity to rethink the impact of clouds on climate. When galactic cosmic rays increase, so do low clouds, and when cosmic rays decrease clouds do as well, so climate warming may be caused by an opposite-umbrella effect. The umbrella effect caused by galactic cosmic rays is important when thinking about current global warming as well as the warm period of the medieval era.
According to Hyodo, the politically driven climate models – including the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – fail to take into account the umbrella effect in their calculations.
Also, two years ago researchers in Australia concluded the current warming period on the planet was likely attributable to natural temperature trends that predated human industrialization.
“After applying the latest big data technique to six 2,000 year-long proxy-temperature series we cannot confirm that recent warming is anything but natural – what might have occurred anyway, even if there was no industrial revolution,” the Australian team noted.
“Our new technical paper … will likely be ignored,” one of the researchers wrote for The Spectator Australia.
He was right …
Federal government, state government, and increased private expenditures wasted on man-made-global warming over the past two decades, nearly a trillion, yes a trillion dollars, on subsidies, tax credits, and private expenditures that accomplished nothing but made Gore and many others rich beyond belief. Most climate scientists believe that fossil fuels do bear responsibility for a small contribution to global warming. But the largest contributor is solar activity, which should not surprise anybody. And in less than a century, fossil fuels, a limited resource, will be displaced naturally by other energy sources.
The UN’s International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is using climate change as a political instrument to change the balance of political power around the world. Its support has little to do with the science of climate change and its causes. The UN agency’s leaders are aiming at the elimination of the USA as the leading industrial nation. Other UN agencies seemingly acting from the purist motives have been weakening American foreign policy. The Taliban in Afghanistan were eliminated easily because U.S. troops were welcomed by the population who reacted against the Taliban’s ban on the growing of opium. The Taliban was financed and resurrected as a fighting force when it reversed its anti-opium policy and we stupidly adopted an anti-opium policy at the UN’s suggestion and banned the growing of opium, even using American troops to destroy the crops in the fields. And for what? All of the Afghan opium is sold in Asia. As a result of our involvement in the anti-opium policy, it is we whom the Afghans now want out of their country amid growing support for the Taliban.
In 2012 the American Meteorological Society (AMS) surveyed its 7,000 members, receiving 1,862 responses. Of those, only 52% said they think global warming over the 20th century has happened and is mostly man-made (the IPCC position). The remaining 48% either think it happened but natural causes explain at least half of it, or it didn’t happen, or they don’t know.
A mountain of evidence for this view is contained in “Inconvenient Facts: The science that Al Gore doesn’t want you to know.” Written by Gregory Wrightstone of Pittsburgh, the book puts climate change into a geologic context of billions of years — a perspective derived from the author’s 35 years as a geologist. He states humans have thrived in previous periods significantly warmer than our modern age, most recently in the 13th century when Vikings farmed Greenland and citrus grew in England. Conversely, people have suffered during cold periods such as the Little Ice Age (1290-1850), which was marked by famine and disease.

In regard to the 2019 position of the American Meteorological Society:
“The latitudinal and seasonal observations of the surface warming and the observed warming of the troposphere and cooling of the stratosphere are consistent with theoretical expectations from increased concentrations of greenhouse gases.”
“ Scientific evidence indicates that the leading cause of climate change in the most recent half century is the anthropogenic increase in the concentration of atmospheric greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide (CO2), chlorofluorocarbons, methane, tropospheric ozone, and nitrous oxide.”
