|Hellfire and Brimstone|
As the Obama administration and Senate Democrats feverishly stoke up hellfire and brimstone global warming alarm to promote a Climate Action Plan, leading voices in green choir robes have abandoned the climate crisis hymnal.First Bell mentions Patrick Moore, Greenpeace co-founder who quit the activist environmental organisation in 1986 when they were moving away from science and toward the communist movement - See:
At the same time, the collapse of World Communism and the fall of the Berlin Wall led to the environmental movement being hijacked by the political and social activists who learned to use green language to cloak agendas that had more to do with anticapitalism and antiglobalization than with science or ecology.Patrick Moore told the Senate Environmental and Public Works Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight:
There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth's atmosphere over the past 100 years.
Perhaps the simplest way to expose the fallacy of extreme certainty is to look at the historical record. When modern life evolved over 500 million years ago, CO2 was more than 10 times higher than today, yet life flourished at this time. Then an ice age occurred 450 million years ago when carbon dioxide was 10 times higher than today. (bold added)Larry Bell moves on to Dr. Fritz Vahrenholt, a prominent Socialist and a father of Germany’s environmental movement.
His lack of trust began while serving as an expert reviewer for an IPCC renewable energy report as the renewable energy division head of Germany’s second largest utility company.
Upon discovering and pointing out numerous factual inaccuracies to IPCC officials, they simply brushed them aside. Stunned by this, he began to wonder if IPCC reports on climate change were similarly sloppy. After digging into the IPCC’s climate report he was horrified to find similar incompetency and misrepresentations, including climate models that were fudged to produce exaggerated temperature increases.

“The facts need to be discussed sensibly and scientifically, without first deciding on the results.” (bold added)Larry Bell then discusses the re-inventor of the GAIA religion, James Lovelock, whose about turn was discussed HERE and HERE.
Finally Larry Bell mentions Nobel Laureate physicist Dr. Ivar Giaever.
This blog has written much of Dr Giaever including his resignation from the American Physical Society and his inclusion in 50 former IPCC experts who have seen the light.
Larry Bell writes:
Nobel Laureate physicist Dr. Ivar Giaever has referred to global warming ideology as a “pseudoscience” that begins with an emotionally-appealing hypothesis, and “then only looks for items which appear to support it,” while ignoring ample contrary evidence.Bell's conclusion hits the nail on the head:
Tragically, that pseudoscience does greatest injustice to those who can least afford it.
