(With apologies to the editorial of the September 21, 1897. New York Sun)
West Virginia, your pretend friends at EPA are wrong. They have been affected by the deception of the environmental age. They do not believe except what they want to see. They think that nothing can be which does not fit their little political agenda. All political agendas, West Virginia, whether they be men’s or children’s, are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.
Unfortunately bureaucrats at EPA don’t even consider you ants. As humans you are “a cancer on the Earth” a philosophy of the Club of Rome (CoR) transferred to the UN Agenda 21 at the 1992 Rio Conference. The political objective was environmental protection from you and your harmful product, coal. They created science to prove political actions were necessary, and a way of ignoring the science with Principle 15, which says in part,
“Where there are threats of serious or irreversible damage, lack of full scientific certainty shall not be used as a reason for postponing cost-effective measures to prevent environmental degradation.”
Cancer is uncontrolled division of abnormal cells. The CoR extended the 19th century idea that human population would outgrow food supply by claiming modern industrialized fossil fuel driven nations accelerated the cancer by exploding populations consuming all resources. Maurice Strong was the link between the CoR, the UN and the Rio 92 Declaration. He orchestrated the political and scientific goal of shutting down the industrialized nations by showing their byproduct, CO2, was causing uncontrollable global warming. He created the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to create the science. It was done through the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) making their work official climate science of government. But it was false science, as any who examine it discover.
Physicist and meteorologist Klaus-Eckart Plus wrote,
“Ten years ago I simply parroted what the IPCC told us. One day I started checking the facts and data – first I started with a sense of doubt but then I became outraged when I discovered that much of what the IPCC and the media were telling us was sheer nonsense and was not even supported by any scientific facts and measurements. To this day I still feel shame that as a scientist I made presentations of their science without first checking it.” “Scientifically it is sheer absurdity to think we can get a nice climate by turning a CO2 adjustment knob.”
A list details how CO2 was isolated and vilified.
1.IPCC research was focussed by definition of climate change as only those changes caused by humans. Impossible to determine if you don’t know natural changes and their cause.
2.Total greenhouse gases (GHG) are approximately 2.36 percent of the atmosphere. Of this total over 95 percent is water vapor. CO2 is less than 4 percent of all GHG but the definition in (1) makes it almost the entire focus.
3.They claimed CO2 remained in the atmosphere for 100 years; it’s actually between 5 and 6 years.
4.They claimed an increase in CO2 causes an increase in temperature. Every single record of any duration for any time period shows the opposite. Temperature increases before CO2. It is not driving temperature or climate change.
5.They claimed pre-industrial levels of CO2 were 270 parts per million (ppm) much lower than current claimed levels of 392 ppm. Actually, they were about the same but manipulation of the historic ice core record and current measurements created a false record.
6.They claimed current levels are the lowest in 600,000 years but that is based on the manipulated ice core records.
7.Actually, CO2 levels are the lowest in 600 million years and only equalled 300 million years ago.
8.Plants require CO2 and function best at 1200 ppm so at 392 ppm they are malnourished.
9.Since 2000 temperatures have declined but C02 levels continue to rise in complete contradiction to their hypothesis. It triggered the switch from global warming to climate change.
10. Climate change is a constant and current change is well within natural variability.
11. IPCC computer models are programmed for temperature increase with CO2 increase. Every prediction, projection or scenario they’ve produced was wrong.
12. IPCC ignore major solar mechanisms that explain temperature changes well.
Obama predicted under his cap and trade plan, “electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” It failed, so he bypassed legislation and went directly to the EPA who used the Supreme Court for justification to limit CO2. Some say they contrived Connecticut’s lawsuit, which against themselves for failing to control CO2 under the Clean Air Act. The Supreme Court ruled the Act authorizes federal regulation of emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Justice Scalia wrote in dissent,
“The Court’s alarm over global warming may or may not be justified, but it ought not distort the outcome of this litigation. This is a straightforward administrative-law case, in which Congress has passed a malleable statute giving broad discretion, not to us but to an executive agency.”
US politicians are doing everything to control CO2 when it’s scientifically unjustified. Meanwhile US manufacturing and jobs to go to China and India who develop coal burning plants, supposedly now clean burning, at a remarkable rate. In 2009 China “…began using, more coal than the United States, Europe and Japan combined.” China builds two a week and India approved 150 in 2010 and plan a 600 percent increase over the next 20 years.
Yes, West Virginia there is climate change, but it is natural and has nothing to do with CO2. EPA’s actions are scientifically unjustified and based on the politically contrived climate science of the IPCC, which was deliberately designed to blame human produced CO2.
