Nick’s Snow Flak assertion: “The past 30 years, every month has been warmer than the global average, every succeeding decade warmer than the previous. In the past three years, we experienced the hottest years on record. ClimateChange contributed to massive floods, record droughts, etc ...”
Between 1900-present, global warming increased by O.8 degrees C., with 50 percent of the warming occurring between 1900-1945, prior to the alleged fossil-fuel CO2 effect. The following synopsis of warming/cooling cycles is a reality check to the misinformation cited above: 1. 1900-1945-significant WARMING, peaking in 1936. 2. 1945-1977 — significant COOLING. 3. 1977-1998-milder WARMING. 4. 1998-present — NO WARMING — Slight cooling.
Nick’s assertion highlights the ClimateScare Mmntra, launched by Hansen in 1988: Rising CO2 from humans’ profligate use of fossil fuel created catastrophic Anthropogenic Glibal Warning (AGW), which threatened to destroy the planet. The ensuing panic was reminiscent of initial public reaction to Orson Welles’ 1938 radio broadcast announcing the Martian invasion of New Jersey.
MartianScare lasted a day, ClimateScare 30 years! Both were manufactured crises. How did ClimateScare perpetuate panic for 30 years.?
ClimateScare was maintained on life support by three powerful movements, each exploiting ClimateScare to advance its own agenda: 1. PROGRESSIVE-controlled education from grade school through graduate school, plus “Fake News.” Student indoctrination produced a dogmatic ClimateScare religion with Inquisition instincts.
The “Science was settled,” with zero tolerance for contrary science.
RADICAL ENVIRONMENTALISM controlled EPA policy.
COMPLIANT CONSENSUS SCIENTISTS compromised individual intellectual integrity for financial gain and academic advancement by publishing articles supporting ClimateScare. The following Details the ClimateScare Coverup, which included redefining CATASTROPHIC AGW as climate change.
IN 1998, Global Warming ceased, necessitating introduction of the term “pause,” conveying the impression that AGW was merely taking a breather. When the pause continued, ClimateScare faced a conundrum: How to eliminate the pause yet perpetuate the illusion that alleged AGW never ceased?
In 2008, NASA effectively purged pause from the Temperature Curve by manipulating temperature data. Catastrophic AGW underwent a “Badda Book, Badda Boom” makeover and name change. AGW was now responsible not only for Global Warming, but for all extreme weather events/destructive environmental events such as wildfires, polar vortices, species extinctions, etc. If it happened, AGW caused it!
King Kong AGW had morphed into Godzilla-Global Climate Monster. The inference: Man created AGW. AGW now controlled all-weather events. Therefore Man, not Nature, now controlled the climate!
The Corollary: What Man had wrought, Man could put asunder! (By joining the Paris Climate Agreement!). Because catastrophic AGW never occurred, ClimateScare replaced it with the non-threatening, commonly used term, Climate/Change, which had long referred to the natural cyclic change in climate.
Climate Change is now ClimateScare — codeword for catastrophic AGW.
