You may remember this picture. I first saw it in science class…around 5th grade…
I’ve always sort of wondered how all of these brilliant scientists run around spending millions on research to prove the conclusion that mankind is responsible for changes in our climate. Every time I talk to someone about it I point confused at the sun and ask, “What about that?” Well…what about it?
I mean, Al Gore is calling people that don’t believe him racists as if science is about towing the line. I can’t help but be reminded about being called a “flat earther” over this crap.
This article over at Financial Post makes me want to throw all of these people in jail.
The hypothesis that cosmic rays and the sun hold the key to the global warming debate has been Enemy No. 1 to the global warming establishment ever since it was first proposed by two scientists from the Danish Space Research Institute, at a 1996 scientific conference in the U.K. Within one day, the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Bert Bolin, denounced the theory, saying, “I find the move from this pair scientifically extremely naive and irresponsible.” He then set about discrediting the theory, any journalist that gave the theory cre dence, and most of all the Danes presenting the theory — they soon found themselves vilified, marginalized and starved of funding, despite their impeccable scientific credentials.
This probably doesn’t surprise any of you that would read this, but the government funded scientific community has been defending its source of endless climate change money pretty fiercely. Well the debate can finally be settled…if anyone actually gets to read about it that is:
Yet this spectacular success will be largely unrecognized by the general public for years — this column will be the first that most readers have heard of it — because CERN remains too afraid of offending its government masters to admit its success. Weeks ago, CERN formerly decided to muzzle Mr. Kirby and other members of his team to avoid “the highly political arena of the climate change debate,” telling them “to present the results clearly but not interpret them” and to downplay the results by “mak[ing] clear that cosmic radiation is only one of many parameters.” The CERN study and press release is written in bureaucratese and the version of Mr. Kirkby’s study that appears in the print edition of Nature censored the most eye-popping graph — only those who know where to look in an online supplement will see the striking potency of cosmic rays in creating the conditions for seeding clouds.
So here we are in the middle of a struggling economy and crippling unemployment and we’re letting the EPA shackle us to climate change mythology. This isn’t a small issue. As anyone that has thought about the problem for more than a passing moment realizes, if you take the AGW groups arguments and put them into policy we are committing ourselves to poverty – sacrificing the greatest nation in history on the altar of environmentalist propaganda. We need to get this word out there so we can rally political pressure to dismantle the cap and trade agenda completely and release the people in the oil, coal, and natural gas development communities to continue growing our nation. Chop chop.
