Subject: Climate Change (Chatham County Commission) response to Gina Robertson
Gina, Thank you for your reply, I appreciate your thoughtful response. However you make a number of claims which are unsupportable on the evidence.
You say that “The overwhelming consensus of those people (who study climate change) is that climate change is happening, and that it is influenced by human actions”. Yet you offer no proof of this claim. Today you will find in surveys of actual scientists show that a majority conclude, on the evidence, that CO2 and Temperature are unrelated (60+ %), with a minority saying that they are related (this minority represents your consensus view).
You are most likely unaware that there is an ongoing project which documents, by name and profession scientists who have gone on record against the theory: http://www.
Even amongst those who say that that mankind may have an effect on warming, there is no consensus amongst them as to what the effect actually is, or how large the effect is, or how it works, since there is no quantifiable data to support the hypothesis. As was pointed out yesterday, 97% of carbon emissions annually come from Volcanic activity and Forrest Fires, which can vary quite a bit year by year. The CO2 emissions from these sources are exactly identical to the relatively small amount put out by the total aggregate activity of man including breathing. We have no correlation between CO2 and Temperature. And a very small annual contribution to CO2 from all animal life plus the boring of fossil fuels (3% total).
You say that “the majority of published papers on the subject support the notion that mankind is causing climate change. But you fail to mention the 2009 exposures of fraud coming from the Hadley Climate Research Unit, then followed by similar exposures at New Zealand’s NWIA, Australia’s climate center, NOAA, the Climategate emails, and later Climategate 2.0, which have only confirmed the doubts arising from the obviously NON-scientific methods employed by the Anthropogenic Global Warming supporters. These are the “experts” you believe that you can rely on to inform your “beliefs”?
The Climategate (I and II) email dumps fully expose an widespread and aggressive campaign to prevent the publication of articles countering the “consensus” view, including emailing to each other advice on how best to intimidate publications into suppressing countervailing papers. They also expose an active collaboration to alter data sets to conform to the theory (something the un-altered temperature and CO2 data by itself didn’t), and how to rig the climate models to come up with results which conform better to the theory.
You further say that “nobody is going along with scientific consensus today to avoid being cast into prison”. Really? We are getting close to that point, consider the following:
- Evidently you are unaware that 17 AG’s from the ultra liberal states + AG for Virgin Islands calling themselves AG’s United for Clean Power, have been filing law suits against companies and other entities for publishing research into climate change which doesn’t agree with the “consensus”.
You are also unaware that a number of publications are being sued for publishing articles showing the depth and nature of false statements, falsified data, falsified statistics, and falsified charts coming from certain climate researchers like Mann (famous phony hockey stick chart).
Further Obama’s administrators/secretaries of EPA, Interior, and Energy all made it clear when taking office that there was no room in the administration for anyone who didn’t believe in “Climate Change”, in other words put aside scientific evidence.. speak out, lose your job.
Further still, the Obama administration harassed, intimidated and ultimately fired a top scientist at the Department of Energy who dared to counter the administration’s stated position on climate change with facts (specifically by publishing evidence and facts related to the impact of radiation, specific research which definitively disproves elements of the Forcing theory of Global Warming)
One more example – In 2016, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that not only has she discussed internally the possibility of pursuing civil actions against so-called “climate change deniers,” but she has “referred it to the FBI to consider whether or not it meets the criteria for which we could take action.”
I have laid out the scientific evidence in a clear and easy to understand fashion yesterday, each piece easily verifiable. You can check each and every fact, but you likely won’t, as you’ve said yourself.. you don’t have time. It used to be considered healthy and necessary to question your own beliefs, if the facts bear your beliefs out, your belief grows stronger.. however, if the facts don’t bear them out.. why exactly do you still hold on to those beliefs?
