The political debate over man-made climate change is one of the most relevant, real-time examples a student of social science and/or political science could observe to see exactly how a successful corporate/government/media propaganda campaign is carried out.
Indeed, the ‘global warming’ cult- and all its various incarnations through the years- brings to mind the timeless propaganda quote from Nazi Germany:
If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. – Joseph Goebbels
Most people are familiar with the decades of terminology- greenhouse gas, ozone layer, CO2, fossil fuels, CFC’s and freon, ice caps, carbon, sea levels … It is literally everywhere. Regulations, standards, taxes, media, classrooms, etc.
I do not wish to argue the science or anything about it. But, I do wish to add to the narrative some “inconvenient truths” that never seem to get included in the discussion.
East Anglia University- An Inconvenient Lie
In a sane world, the “Climategate” scandal would’ve ended the climate change fraud.
In 2009, leaked emails from East Anglia Universitys’ Professor Philip Jones revealed manipulated data, intimidation and discrediting of critics, and cover-ups. Jones was the head of the Climactic Research Unit, which provided the data used by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. A “special investigatory commission” incredibly found that while some of the actions discovered were troubling, Professor Jones and his science remain credible and the mainstream media dutifully reported same.
Our hopelessly compromised scientific establishment cannot be allowed to get away with the Climategate whitewash, says Christopher Booker. (11/2009)
From: Phil Jones. To: Many. Nov 16, 1999
“I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature [the science journal] trick of adding in the real temps to each series for the last 20 years (ie, from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.”
The latest release of 5,000 emails from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) reconfirms what the 2009’s “Climategate” files established: Global warming is more fiction than science. (11/2011)
Solar Minimum- Maximum Results
There is a strong correlation between Solar activity and climate change. There is more evidence for the sun as the dominant factor in climate (and virtually every Earth dynamic) than anything else.
Correlating all the data from tree rings to ice cores and sunspot activity, what is clear is that society expands with Global Warming and collapses during Global Cooling. Voting for some political party (left or right) cannot change the climate. Politicians cannot even balance a budget, so they can play God? (1/2018)
Solar activities have had notable effect on palaeoclimatic changes. Contemporary solar activity are so weak and hence expected to cause global cooling.
Historical Averages- History Repeats
The Earth has been much warmer than it is now many times. Cycles of warming and cooling have always occurred.
Geologic evidence shows our climate has been changing over millions of years. The warming and cooling of global temperatures are likely the result of long-term climatic cycles, solar activity, sea-surface temperature patterns and more.

CO2 Not Bad- Gas-lighting the Greenhouse
Increased CO2 levels would actually be beneficial.
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is not a pollutant and the global warming debate has nothing to do with pollution. The average person has been misled and is confused about what the current global warming debate is about – greenhouse gases. None of which has anything to do with air pollution.
CO2 is a great airborne fertilizer which, as its concentrations rise, causes additional plant growth and causes plants to need less water. Without CO2 there would be no life (food) on Earth. The 120 ppm of CO2 added to the atmosphere since the start of the industrial revolution has caused an average increase in worldwide plant growth of over 12 percent and of 18 percent for trees.
Venus- the Evil “Twin”
Our “twin” planet Venus is often-cited as a dire warning of what could happen to us if a “runaway” greenhouse effect took place. Because of the vast differences of the two planets, a replication of the hellish condition of Venus isn’t possible here. The atmosphere (pressure, composition), clouds (composition, perpetually globally encompassing), magnetosphere (very weak versus very strong), rotation (Venus is one of two planets with a retrograde rotation, with a rotational period longer than a Venus “year”), and axis tilt (Venus has no tilt=no seasons) are all vastly different. There are no oceans; in fact there is not even any water vapor.
Venus doesn’t experience climate change. Like a true greenhouse, the entire planet stays the same temperature in perpetuity- and has for a very long time. There is no “runaway” greenhouse. Venus reached an equilibrium point based upon all the factors.
Venus’ atmosphere is made almost entirely of carbon dioxide, and not the oxygen/nitrogen mix we have here on Earth. The clouds we see on Venus are made up of sulfur dioxide and drops of sulfuric acid.
Terrestrial planets Venus and Earth are each others respective closest neighbor, and are roughly the same size, but have virtually nothing in common.
The atmosphere is 96.5% CO2 and with virtually no water (very different from Earth). The surface pressure is about 90 times higher than on Earth. At this pressure, CO2 is highly absorbing…
And, by the way morons…
REAL science is NEVER “Settled”. Only a moron that does not understand science and the scientific method would make statements that something is “settled science”, the “debate is over” and people who have contrary evidence are “deniers”.
Science is always about testing, challenging, confirming, and replicating what is already known.
A science that is not “falsifiable” is pseudo science.
And saying something is a “consensus” while pretending critics don’t exist- reveals who the real deniers are.
