Climate Change is a political movement of the globalist Left which must be considered in light of ideology, objectives and tactics. The ideology is Postmodern neo-Marxism, and the primary goal is political and cultural power, word-wide. While obviously there are scientific aspects to this phenomenon, because of the ideology the “science” must be considered with diligent skepticism, with a distinction made between that which is objectively true and that which is fabricated to support ideology.
Further, it should be understood that public attitudes towards Climate Change are molded largely through ideological tactics used by the Left in both contemporary and historical settings. This takes place because of the significant hegemony of Leftist thinking in academia, media and entertainment spheres, and on the increase in government, the corporate world, religious organizations and the hard science and health professions.
The extreme hold that Leftist ideology has on college and university campuses is sometimes considered to be found mostly in the humanities and social sciences, and also expressed in enforced speech codes, diversity, inclusivity and equity among the faculty, staff, administration and students. However, there is no reason to think that similar ideological purity will not be present in the hard sciences as well. The power of ideology in the case of climate-related sciences has significant bearing in the area of funding. If one is open to skepticism, then even if their job isn’t at risk, their ability to acquire funding for their research is greatly diminished.
Climate Change vs. Valid Environmentalism
In this critique, one important element needs to be constantly in front: the environmental, ecological and general well-being of the planet. The “Climate Change” political movement is about power, employing both promotional and coercive tactics to achieve their goals. So this movement must be separated from that which is supportive of legitimate environmental and ecological needs. An excellent web site for Climate Change skepticism and sane environmentalism is Patrick Moore’s Ecosense.me.
In the past 50 years or so, there have been a sequence of predictions of world-wide, man-made catastrophic processes at work: global cooling, overpopulation, the Ozone layer, scarcity of resources, etc. In the later 1980s, the new threat that came on the scene was man-made or Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW). The difference in this threat from the earlier predictions was the identification of a politically strategic entity that provided the Left with their long-held desire to eliminate capitalism: Carbon-dioxide. CO2. The product of fossil fuel burning. The totalitarian elimination of fossil fuels essentially destroys capitalism.
The Climate Change narrative posits that because of CO2’s presence in the atmosphere surrounding the world, some of the heat being released from the earth’s surface is absorbed, suppressing the cooling of the earth and causing temperatures to rise, ice coverages and glaciers to melt, resulting in catastrophic rise in ocean levels. Essentially, the narrative is that the rise in earth’s temperature is solely related to the rise in CO2 in the atmosphere and is man-made as a result of the use of fossil fuels.
The beauty of this narrative is that the Left can now convince the entire world to eliminate fossil fuels, and thus cripple capitalism. In the resulting human tragedy, complete world-wide governmental control would be mandatory, and the meager resources available would then supposedly be distributed equitably, there would be no more wars, and everybody would get along with everyone else. The Green New Deal of early 2019 spells some of this out.
Quotes from the Past
To demonstrate that the Climate Change movement is ultimately about global control, consider the following quotes from a few of the “founders” of the Climate Change narrative. A place to start is with the Club of Rome, which was founded in 1968, and has served as Environmental consultants to the UN:
“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would ?t the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.” – Club of Rome, where “unite us” really equates to “control them”.
“The real enemy then, is humanity itself.” – Club of Rome, with the suggestion that the “enemy” (i.e., us) needs to be controlled.
“We believe humanity requires a common motivation, namely a common adversary in order to realize world government. It does not matter if this common enemy is a real one or….one invented for the purpose.” – Club of Rome, suggesting that false narratives are acceptable; whatever it takes to accomplish world government.
There was a 1972 report commissioned by the Club of Rome entitled “The Limits to Growth.” As Wikipedia describes it:
The Limits to Growth (LTG) is a 1972 report on the computer simulation of exponential economic and population growth with a finite supply of resources. Funded by the Volkswagen Foundation and commissioned by the Club of Rome, the findings of the study were first presented at international gatherings in Moscow and Rio de Janeiro in the summer of 1971.
Here is a quote from this report:
“We are unanimously convinced that rapid, radical redressment of the present unbalanced and dangerously deteriorating world situation is the primary task facing mankind…Concerted international measures and joint long-term planning will be necessary on a scale and scope without precedent. …. This supreme effort is … founded on a basic change of values and goals at individual, national and world levels … “
Basically, the UN with help from the Club of Rome is searching for support of global-scale measures – power – to combat world-wide “problems”, whether or not they are real, requiring an ideological indoctrination of the world.
An important person to consider is Timothy Wirth, former Congressman and Senator from Colorado, Co-Chairman of Bill Clinton’s 1992 Presidential Campaign and ultimately President of the Ted Turner’s UN Foundation. Here’s a quote of his, consistent with the acceptability of false narratives:
“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”
And finally, here are several quotes from Maurice Strong, a Canadian with a multi-faceted career in gas and oil, water development, and molten metals technology. He first became involved in the United Nations in 1947. In 1971 he co-authored a report on the state of the planet in preparation for the 1972 Stockholm Conference. He became the first head of the UN Environment Program (UNEP), and in that position convened an international meeting on climate change. He dealt with famine in Africa, and then took a leading role in the planning of the 1992 Earth Summit. He was a principal player in the development of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Here are some quotes:
“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” – Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Program (UNEP). He was a Socialist.
“Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the afluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, air- conditioning, and suburban housing – are not sustainable.” – Maurice Strong, Rio Earth Summit. Elimination of fossil fuels would destroy Capitalism, and thus level the hierarchical structure that it produces, rendering everyone to be equally poor, except for the “elites”.
“It is the responsibility of each human being today to choose between the force of darkness and the force of light. We must therefore transform our attitudes, and adopt a renewed respect for the superior laws of Divine Nature.” – Maurice Strong, ?rst Secretary General of UNEP. In other words, just as Antonio Gramsci said in 1916, “Socialism is a religion … “. And the prophet Isaiah said, “Woe until them who call good evil, and evil good.” How can those that approve of deceit to gain power be called “light”? Aren’t they the definition of darkness?
The Rio Declaration on Environment and Development was a short document produced at the 1992 United Nations “Conference on Environment and Development” (UNCED), sometimes known as the Earth Summit. Here is the opening statement:
The Rio Declaration states that the only way to have long term economic progress is to link it with environmental protection. This will only happen if nations establish a new and equitable global partnership involving governments, their people and key sectors of societies. They must build international agreements that protect the integrity of the global environmental and the developmental system.
That sounds benign enough, except part of the “global environmental” includes dealing with man-made global warming. And the “economic progress” and “developmental system” entail a crippling of Capitalism.
Additionally, also in 1992, the UN set forth a more extensive plan for the nations: Agenda 21, and the US (under President George H. W. Bush) signed on to it, along with most of the rest of the world. The details of Agenda 21 (and its following Agenda 2030) are too extensive to deal with here, but they are draconian, and three decades later, moving ahead nearly unopposed, except by a few.
A 2019 speech by Tom DeWeese of the American Policy Center describes how the Climate Change movement combines with the Green New Deal (GND) and Agenda 21 to attempt to transition the world into a totalitarian Socialist entity. He levels special criticism at the Right for attempting to find common ground with the GND, for example by proposing Green New Deal-Lite, when in reality they’ve fallen prey to the classic dialectic (thesis, antithesis to synthesis) transition, when there’s no reason at all to move in the direction of the GND.
Agenda 21 is frightening, in part because it is being successfully accomplished in stealth manner with very little pushback, as opposed to the Climate Change movement, which strenuously and publicly demonizes “Climate Deniers”; thus, at least pushback is visible. Further information on Agenda 21 can be found here.
In the three decades following the Earth Summit and the establishment of the UN IPCC, elaborate schemes of dealing with the CO2 have been developed: Carbon footprint, Carbon credits, controlling CO2 emissions, etc. And the propagation of the CO2 as evil narrative has become an extraordinarily successful venture, such that any who are skeptical of the narrative are demonized, silenced, ostracized.
There is also a great increase in entrepreneurial activities during these years in alternative, renewable forms of energy such as solar, wind and hydroelectric. Interestingly, in the US, there has not been an increase in the development of Nuclear energy, although in some of the more developed countries around the world such as China and India there has been a great increase in this technology.
What is also of note is that in the US, in a counter thrust to “Climate Change” there has been the huge development of fracking, which has catapulted the US to be the world’s leading exporter of energy. In the AGW narrative, that kind of progress would be ultimately eliminated.
Of course, the fundamental question is whether or not CO2 is the primary cause of “global warming”. And in the past 20 years, a big problem for the Left has arisen: the world’s temperature rise has essentially flattened, while the CO2 percentage in the atmosphere has continued to rise. That flattening provoked the Left to re-brand the issue from “Man-Made Global Warming” to “Climate Change.”
In the past decade or so, there has been considerable issues of corruption among climate scientists and promoters of the narrative. The exposure of emails from the East Anglia University in 2009 (called Climategate) demonstrate considerable deceit, attempting to hide the lack of dependence of world temperatures on the quantity of CO2 in the atmosphere, and falsifying temperature readings from around the world. A second anonymous release of emails from the Climate Change establishment took place in 2011 (Climategate 2.0).
Consider the following quote from the Forbes website:
Three themes are emerging from the newly released emails: (1) prominent scientists central to the global warming debate are taking measures to conceal rather than disseminate underlying data and discussions; (2) these scientists view global warming as a political “cause” rather than a balanced scientific inquiry and (3) many of these scientists frankly admit to each other that much of the science is weak and dependent on deliberate manipulation of facts and data.
There are also a sizeable number of computer models, all of which (except 1) show various amounts of catastrophic rise in world temperature and sea levels in the near future. Yet all of these models have user-defined parameters to manipulate the predictions in favor of immanent disaster. But years ago, in the early days of computer modeling, someone stated, “with enough adjustable parameters, you can draw an elephant.”
The Truth About CO2 and Climate Change
Outside of the Leftist-controlled scientific and governmental entities, there is an alternative enterprise of scientists who come to very different conclusions, and who are able to demonstrate convincingly that the Leftist-run Climate Change narrative is fundamentally wrong; CO2 plays a very minor role in the earth’s temperature, the seas are not rising, the polar bears populations are increasing, not decreasing, and the oceans are not becoming more acidic, and are rising at an almost imperceptible rate. Also, there’s been a mild decrease in the past 100 years in violent weather events, Basically, there is no impending catastrophe at all due to climate, but there would be catastrophic chaos and loss of life if the Leftist plans were to be fully implemented under totalitarian control.
One of the organizations which supports “Climate Realism” is the Heartland Institute. There are two 2019 conferences on Climate Realism that they particapted in:
On July 25, 2019, they held a conference in Washington DC, which provided a comprehensive view of what is actually happening in term of world climate, and where the UN IPCC and related enterprises are dealing with erroneous models and falsified data to produce the appearance of a climate crisis impending for the world.
On December 3, 2019, they participated in a “opposition” conference in Madrid, during the COP25 Conference, sponsored by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The Heritage people even introduced an “anti-Greta”: Naomi Seibt – the Rational Greta. As is always the case with the Globalists, their conterence contained well-promoted but pathetic, fear-laden false narratives, whereas the Heritage conference provided needed fact and logic-based science:
Climate Reality Forum at COP25 – December 3, 2019
Among the many examples of false narratives dealing with Climate Change, among the most egregious is the claim that 97% of scientists believe in CO2-based global warming. But where did that number come from?
There were two reports in 2009 and 2010 suggesting that a review of scientist views on man-made Climate Change resulted in 97% consensus. But the first report came from a 2-question online survey wherein 79 scientists who had considerable publishing experience in climate-related studies responded, and 77 of them agreed that global temperature had risen since 1800, and the human activity was a significant factor. Hence 97%, not of ALL climate scientists, but those who happen to come across the survey, or perhaps were informed of the survey by colleagues, etc. With the thousands of scientists world-wide who did not participate, this statistic is essentially worthless. A second study a year later with an equally small sample size yielded similar results.
Consider the following analysis of a 2013 study:
Surely the most suspicious “97 percent” study was conducted in 2013 by Australian scientist John Cook – author of the 2011 book Climate Change Denial: Heads in the Sand and creator of the blog Skeptical Science (subtitle: “Getting skeptical about global warming skepticism.”). In an analysis of 12,000 abstracts, he found “a 97% consensus among papers taking a position on the cause of global warming in the peer-reviewed literature that humans are responsible.” “Among papers taking a position” is a significant qualifier: Only 34 percent of the papers Cook examined expressed any opinion about anthropogenic climate change at all. Since 33 percent appeared to endorse anthropogenic climate change, he divided 33 by 34 and – voilà – 97 percent! When David Legates, a University of Delaware professor who formerly headed the university’s Center for Climatic Research, recreated Cook’s study, he found that “only 41 papers — 0.3 percent of all 11,944 abstracts or 1.0 percent of the 4,014 expressing an opinion, and not 97.1 percent,” endorsed what Cook claimed. Several scientists whose papers were included in Cook’s initial sample also protested that they had been misinterpreted. “Significant questions about anthropogenic influences on climate remain,” Legates concluded.
A similar exposé of the fraudulent 97% “consensus” is entitled “97% of Climate Scientists Agree is 100% Wrong.”
By contrast, a petition circulated among PhD scientists expressing skepticism about the role of man-made, CO2-caused global warming had thousands of signers. No, 97% consensus among scientists is a fraudulent claim.
Links to Speakers and Writers Skeptical of CO2-based Global Warming
In the above, the emphasis has been on the ideology behind the Climate Change movement. This has been done to alert the reader to the potential for corruption in the scientific aspects of Climate Change being exceedingly high. As the turn is now made to the objective scientific realities, exposure will be given to scientists who understand the realities of the earth’s climate, and who essentially falsify the claims of pending disaster due to CO2, and the subsequent need to reorganize the entire world under totalitarian control to prevent presumed apocalypse.
Given in the following are links to representative books, articles, and videos providing exposure to various aspects of the climate change movement, which is characterized by fraudulent data and skewed computer models, yet because state-of-the-art propaganda and prominent media, academic, and political platforms penetrating much of the culture with false narratives.
Five well-credentialed and articulate critics of the Climate Change movement are featured here: Will Happer, Marc Morano, Patrick Moore, Willie Soon. and Tim Ball. It should be noted that Dr. Ball recently (August 2019) won a 9-year-long lawsuit (with court costs) from Climate Alarmist Michael Moore of the Hockey Stick graph notoriety.
Physics Professor and CO2 Coalition co-founder Will Happer
To begin the exposé of what is essentially a world-wide hoax, we’ll begin with Princeton physics professor Will Happer, who happens to be a co-founder of the CO2 Coalition. Dr. Happer understands the physics of the spheres surrounding the earth well enough that he has been able to create several inventions for use, including the sodium guidestar that is used in astronomical adaptive optics to correct for the degrading effects of atmospheric turbulence. A fuller example of his many accomplishments can be found here. Needless to say, the mathematical expertise needed to be creative at this level is massive.
In the following are links to a series of videos, containg both interviews of Dr. Happer, and lectures given by him at conferences dealing with Climate issues.
Conversation UPDATE – William Happer (25:36)
(From YouTube) We’re in a carbon drought. That is according to Professor William Happer of Princeton University. The renowned physicist says when it comes to carbon dioxide, there’s more good than bad. He goes on to say most of carbon dioxide’s effect has already happened. He points to the logarithmic dependence of temperature on carbon dioxide levels. Happer says the unique properties of carbon dioxide mean that current levels would need to double for another one-degree increase in temperature and they’d have to double again for another one degree rise.

According to Moore it is life itself that has been consuming carbon and storing it in carbonaceous rocks. He goes on to say, “billions of tons of carbonaceous rock represent carbon dioxide pulled out of the atmosphere, and because the Earth has cooled over the millennia, nature is no longer putting CO2 into the atmosphere to offset this.”

John Abbot (Ed): Climate Change – The Facts
(From Amazon) Tirelessly promoted by princes, presidents, actors and activists, “climate change” has become a dominant theme of global politics. But what’s really going on as the “pause” in global warming prepares to enter its third decade? In this new anthology, leading scientists and commentators from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia consider the climate from every angle – the science, the policy and the politics.
Mark Steyn: A Disgrace to the Profession
(From Amazon) The “hockey stick” graph of global temperatures is the single most influential icon in the global-warming debate, promoted by the UN’s transnational climate bureaucracy, featured in Al Gore’s Oscar-winning movie, used by governments around the world to sell the Kyoto Accord to their citizens, and shown to impressionable schoolchildren from kindergarten to graduation.
And yet what it purports to “prove” is disputed and denied by many of the world’s most eminent scientists. In this riveting book, Mark Steyn has compiled the thoughts of the world’s scientists, in their own words, on hockey-stick creator Michael E Mann, his stick and their damage to science. From Canada to Finland, Scotland to China, Belgium to New Zealand, from venerable Nobel Laureates to energetic young researchers on all sides of the debate analyze the hockey stock and the wider climate wars it helped launch.

Gregory Wrightstone: Inconvenient Facts – The science that Al Gore doesn’t want you to know
(From Amazon) You have been inundated with reports from media, governments, think tanks and ”experts” saying that our climate is changing for the worse and it is our fault. Increases in droughts, heat waves, tornadoes and poison ivy – to name a few – are all blamed on our “sins of emissions” from burning fossil fuels and increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Yet, you don’t quite buy into this human-caused climate apocalypse. You aren’t sure about the details because you don’t have all the facts and likely aren’t a scientist. Inconvenient Facts was specifically created for you. Writing in plain English and providing easily understood charts and figures, Gregory Wrightstone presents the science to assess the basis of the threatened Thermageddon.
A Few Sample Articles Related to Climate Change
On the Validity of NOAA, NASA and Hadley CRU Global Average Surface Temperature Data and The Validity of EPA’s CO2 Endangerment Finding
(From the Report Abstract) The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality. In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data. Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever, despite current claims of record setting warming.
