Letters to the Editor
In your May editorial you “falsely” state it is “established fact that some 97% of the world’s scientists believe…. etc.” This is a commonly heard claim that has been debunked by any number of experts in the field of earth science. I suggest you google “the 97% myth” and you will see how they faked those numbers. Like many from the left you start with a false premise and go on from there. Follow the money is a good theme: but you have it backwards. The money in the global warming game goes to those who continue to falsify records to provide politicians inaccurate data to plan more taxation to feed their desire for increased government size and spending.
If you delve deeply into this subject you will come up with hundreds of scientists who disagree over the global warming claims of those seeking to enrich themselves in this GW scam. The scam was largely uncovered when the East Anglia University GW unit (who advised the UN) reported in 2009 (by a whistleblower) to have cherry picked data to support their models. Simply put they left out all data that did not support their theory. The excuse given was that the man in charge was very untidy and lost some data. It comes as no surprise to learn that he lost the data that would have upset his findings. The British Government then put out official figures showing that there has been no global warming for the last 16 years.
The global warming scammers then had to scramble and they tried. But some were honest people, such as Professor Judith Curry, former Chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech. She said that “obviously our models have got it wrong”. She is now among those who say “it is not possible to project global climate accurately enough to justify the ranges projected for temperature and sea-level rise over the next century.”
Wikipedia lists over 50 scientists from all over the world, including Dr. Curry, who for various reasons do not go along with the global warming scammers. The last three on the list even say that “projected rising temperatures will be of little impact or a net positive for society or the environment.”
So dear editor, you take your fake 97% number and let me go with the 50 plus eminent and named scientists who disagree, for various reasons. In the old days we would occasionally see men walking the streets wearing placards saying that the world is coming to an end. Today we have mostly liberals who seem to have taken up this profession. There is a website named “Science of Doom,” read it you might learn something.
