Anthropological Global Warming is a failed theory that was never about protecting the people or the environment. It is about masking a globalist agenda in environmental wrapping. The truth is the world's temperatures are cooling not heating, the ice caps have grown to modern records, sea levels are holding long term trends not rising - every scare has been defeated by observed data. The Liberty Campaign are holding believers accountable for their scientific and financial fraud that has held back economic development, lowered living standards and caused massive financial distress. Let us demolish AGW in 8 simple steps.
First, here is the official science behind AGW from Britain's Royal Society, then we take this lie apart.
This is why this is wrong - observed data disagrees with every aspect of AGW.
1. Temperature rising in line with long term increase, not the run away that AGW predicts
2. Troposphere is cooling not warming
This is a graph of the Troposphere, you know, up there where all those greenhouse gasses are causing atmospheric warming:
3. Artic not melting
and Antartic Ice at record Levels
And STILL GAINING ICE:Antartica hits 35 year record ice extent, December 2015. Ref
4. Lets talk about the sun
Global temperatures are currently rising at 0.007 degrees per year. Note those zeroes. This is well under the average warming since the end of the little ice age. Believers have removed that big yellow thing in the sky as a culprit in global warming and cooling without suitable scientific basis. The world is cooling because the Sun has moved into a minimum. This is a graph of sunspot activity:
Sunspots are concentrated explosions of energy from the Sun, they warm our planet. So high sunspot activity means higher temperatures, low sunspot activity means lower temperatures. Below is a graph of sunspot activity against a moving average of world temperatures, which stops before the end of the graph because it is a moving average. Note temperature movement follows sunspots. This simple graph completely destroys the very foundation of the AGW scare - which is that the sun is not responsible for warming, we are. BTW this graph is offered by the warmers as proof CO2 IS the culprit, and when you look at it, clearly there is a third element at play here that clearly, neither side can explain:
Here is a great new video reviewing the 1380 Peer Reviewed Papers on Natural Temperature Changes Hidden by IPCC and also a new video on the coming Solar Minimum (little ice age).
5. No link between CO2 and Temperature
Lets take out that CO2/Temperature link. This is a long term graph of CO2 and Temperature taken from ice core data:
Do you see a correlation there? No I dont either.
BTW Atmospheric concentrations of CO2 do not correlate with the location of man-made CO2. This graph shows where the CO2 is and as you can see, it is not where we are. This graph from a new NASA satellite. Looking at the month-to-month data you see a strong rush of CO2 from regions experiencing summer (natural photosynthesis) and disippates quite quickly. The idea that CO2 can last hundreds of years seems disproven by the early data that shows significant monthly migration and mitigation (link below). Remember it is early days yet, with just 1 year's data and little study.

6. Their models are calculated to deceive
Here is an article on why the science behind their models is rubbish. Hint - they dont include the Sun in their models, they just assume it is constant. Likewise wind, volcanos and ocean currents. Except they are not and it is making a joke of their models, as you can see from this graph.
The models also ignore other important natural compensations, like Isoprene. http://www.libertycampaign.org/global-warming-shock-earth-s-natural-coolant-could-be-twice-as-powerful-as-first-thought
Here is a video by Brian Lilley of Rebel Media (www.therebel.media) with a nice encapsulation of the failure of the doomsday prophecies:
This paper released in May 2015 has found a link between ocean currents and temperature changes. Two things are relevant here, firstly they show a link between ocean currents and temperature. This is denied by the IPCC and their modellers, who rely almost exclusively on CO2 as the driver of climate. The second issue here is that it predicts a period of cooling, not warming: http://joannenova.com.au/2015/05/atlantic-cooling-means-global-climate-change-of-a-different-kind-coming/. Even Science Daily has run an article talking about the upcoming period of Global Cooling: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/05/150527133932.htm
UPDATE 28/2/16. Climate Scientists have actually agreed that their models are correct and the hiatus is real. Yeah it is! Our story http://www.libertycampaign.org/hiatus-confirmed-as-scientists-finally-admit-climate-model-fail
7. AGW kept alive by tampering with the temperature dataset
Because there is so much Green/Renewable Industry now in existence and all relying on the theory of AGW being correct, there is a massive amount of self-interest in keeping the scare going. All those Academics that head up "Faculty of Climate Change" type positions are the same "experts" that are quoted as independent scientists supporting AGW. They are not independant - their job depends on keeping the scare going! Read:
So how are they doing that? Well rigging the temperature dataset is a leading tactic. This was actually how I came to question AGW in 2007. When satellite temperatures started to fall I knew that there had to be a problem with the theory of AGW because the models predicted nothing but ever-increasing temperatures. When I looked past the headlines into the actual data it became immediately obvious that the warmer's data was nonsense. This is the aspect of AGW that is now getting a lot of attention. This is an example, it is the temperature dataset from Rutherglen in Victoria. You will notice that the original data shows cooling temperatures, and the BOM's Acorn dataset simply changed this into a warming:
This is just one example, for more see this: http://www.libertycampaign.org/bom-just-makes-stuff-up
UPDATED: German Professor: NASA has fiddled the data on an 'unbelievable" scale. Here is the graph from that article, mouse over to see the huge data tampering that has been going on. This is the world temperature dataset:
And latest fraud from NASA :
8. So what is really behind the AGW agenda?
Most believers just think they are Saving the Planet®. So their hearts are in the right place even if their brains are not. What really matters is the agenda of the people pulling the strings - the Aristocracy. This simple video gives you a hint:
Yes the real inconvenient truth about CO2 is that is greening the planet. See this article by our CSIRO:
If that page goes down here it is in .pdf format
October 2015 Update. Our own UWS has published the first report from their 10 year, $30m study on the effects of increased CO2 on forests and it is all GOOD. 35% increase in vegetation, improved drought resilience. Link here: http://www.libertycampaign.org/hawkesbury-river-study-co2-improves-tree-growth-drought-tolerance
So the effect of rising carbon dioxide levels in conjunction with better farming practices has been an increase in food production such that agricultural production has kept pace with population growth.
So here is the problem. If you are running an agenda to reduce world population because the fewer people the easier to control, and you create a fake population bomb theory to justify this - what you do not want is for rising CO2 to increase food production. You want reduced yields. You want starvation. You want people to be starved out of Africa, Asia Minor and into developed Countries.
You want CLIMATE CHANGE
Lets Talk About the Money and the Power Driving AGW
No warming in 18 years, no category 3-5 hurricane hitting the USA in ten years, seas rising at barely six inches a century: computer models and hysteria are consistently contradicted by Real World experiences.
So how do White House, EPA, UN, EU, Big Green, Big Wind, liberal media, and even Google, GE and Defense Department officials justify their fixation on climate change as the greatest crisis facing humanity? How do they excuse saying government must control our energy system, our economy and nearly every aspect of our lives – deciding which jobs will be protected and which ones destroyed, even who will live and who will die – in the name of saving the planet? What drives their intense ideology?
The answer is simple. The Climate Crisis & Renewable Energy Industry has become a $1.5-trillion-a-year business! That’s equal to the annual economic activity generated by the entire US nonprofit sector, or all savings over the past ten years from consumers switching to generic drugs. By comparison, annual revenues for much-vilified Koch Industries are about $115 billion, for ExxonMobil around $365 billion.
According to a 200-page analysis by the Climate Change Business Journal, this Climate Industrial Complex can be divided into nine segments: low carbon and renewable power; carbon capture and storage; energy storage, like batteries; energy efficiency; green buildings; transportation; carbon trading; climate change adaptation; and consulting and research. Consulting is a $27-billion-per-year industry that handles “reputation management” for companies and tries to link weather events, food shortages and other problems to climate change. Research includes engineering R&D and climate studies.
The $1.5-trillion price tag appears to exclude most of the Big Green environmentalism industry, a $13.4-billion-per-year business in the USA alone. The MacArthur Foundation just gave another $50 million to global warming alarmist groups. Ex-NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Chesapeake Energy gave the Sierra Club $105 million to wage war on coal (shortly before the Club began waging war on natural gas and Chesapeake Energy, in what some see as poetic justice). Warren Buffett, numerous “progressive” foundations, Vladimir Putin cronies and countless companies also give endless millions to Big Green.
Our hard-earned tax dollars are likewise only partially included in the CCBJ tally. As professor, author and columnist Larry Bell notes in his new book, Scared Witless: Prophets and profits of climate doom, the U.S. government spent over $185 billion between 2003 and 2010 on climate change items – and this wild spending spree has gotten even worse in the ensuing Obama years. We are paying for questionable to fraudulent global warming studies, climate-related technology research, loans and tax breaks for Solyndra and other companies that go bankrupt, “climate adaptation” foreign aid to poor countries, and much more.
Also not included: the salaries and pensions of thousands of EPA, NOAA, Interior, Energy and other federal bureaucrats who devote endless hours to devising and imposing regulations for Clean Power Plans, drilling and coal mining bans, renewable energy installations, and countless Climate Crisis, Inc. handouts. A significant part of the $1.9 trillion per year that American businesses and families pay to comply with mountains of federal regulations is also based on climate chaos claims.
Add in the state and local equivalents of these federal programs, bureaucrats, regulations and restrictions, and we’re talking serious money. There are also consumer costs, including the far higher electricity prices families and businesses must pay, especially in states that want to prove their climate credentials.
The impacts on companies and jobs outside the Climate Crisis Industry are enormous, and growing. For every job created in the climate and renewable sectors, two to four jobs are eliminated in other parts of the economy, studies in Spain, Scotland and other countries have found. The effects on people’s health and welfare, and on overall environmental quality, are likewise huge and widespread.
But all these adverse effects are studiously ignored by Climate Crisis profiteers – and by the false prophets of planetary doom who manipulate data, exaggerate and fabricate looming catastrophes, and create the pseudo-scientific basis for regulating carbon-based energy and industries into oblivion. Meanwhile, the regulators blatantly ignore laws that might penalize their favored constituencies.
In one glaring example, a person who merely possesses a single bald eagle feather can be fined up to $100,000 and jailed for a year. But operators of the wind turbine that killed the eagle get off scot-free. Even worse, the US Fish & Wildlife Service actively helps Big Wind hide and minimize its slaughter of millions of raptors, other birds and bats every year. It has given industrial wind operators a five-year blanket exemption from the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, Migratory Birds Treaty Act and Endangered Species Act. The FWS even proposed giving Big Wind a 30-year exemption.
Thankfully, the US District Court in San Jose, CA recently ruled that the FWS and Interior Department violated the National Environmental Policy Act and other laws, when they issued regulations granting these companies a 30-year license to kill bald and golden eagles. But the death tolls continue to climb.
Professor Bell’s perceptive, provocative, extensively researched book reviews the attempted power grab by Big Green, Big Government and Climate Crisis, Inc. In 19 short chapters, he examines the phony scientific consensus on global warming, the secretive and speculative science and computer models used to “prove” we face a cataclysm, ongoing collusion and deceit by regulators and activists, carbon tax mania, and many of the most prominent but phony climate crises: melting glaciers, rising sea levels, ocean acidification, disappearing species and declining biodiversity. His articles and essays do likewise.
Scared Witless also lays bare the real reasons for climate fanaticism, aside from lining pockets. As one prominent politician and UN or EPA bureaucrat after another has proudly and openly said, their “true ambition” is to institute “a new global order” … “ global governance” … “redistribution of the world’s resources” … an end to “hegemonic” capitalism … and “a profound transformation” of “attitudes and lifestyles,” energy systems and “the global economic development model.”
In other words, these unelected, unaccountable US, EU and UN bureaucrats want complete control over our industries; over everything we make, grow, ship, eat and do; and over every aspect of our lives, livelihoods, living standards and liberties. And they intend to “ride the global warming issue” all the way to this complete control, “even if the theory of global warming is wrong” … “even if there is no scientific evidence to back the greenhouse effect” … “even if the science of global warming is all phony.”
If millions of people lose their jobs in the process, if millions of retirees die from hypothermia because they cannot afford to heat their homes properly, if millions of Africans and Asians die because they are denied access to reliable, affordable carbon-based electricity – so be it. Climate Crisis, Inc. doesn’t care.
Free market principles do not apply, and free marketers need not apply. The global warming industry survives and thrives only because of secretive, fraudulent climate science; constant collusion between regulators and pressure groups; and a steady stream of government policies, regulations, preferences, subsidies and mandates – plus taxes and penalties on its competitors. CCI gives lavishly to politicians who keep the gravy train on track, while its attack dogs respond quickly, aggressively and viciously to anyone who dares to challenge its orthodoxies, perks, power and funding.
Climate change has been “real” throughout Earth and human history – periodically significant, sometimes sudden, sometimes destructive. It is driven by the sun and other powerful, complex, interacting natural forces that we still do not fully understand … and certainly cannot control. It has little or nothing to do with the carbon dioxide that makes plants grow faster and better, and is emitted as a result of using fossil fuels that have brought countless, wondrous improvements to our environment and human condition.
Climate Crisis, Inc. is a wealthy, nasty behemoth. But it is a house of cards. Become informed. Get involved. Fight back. And elect representatives – and a president – who also have the backbone to do so.
