Debunking Manufactured Climate Change Crisis

Published August 18, 2023

According to Anthony J. Blinken, U.S. Secretary of State, “Climate is not a trading card, it’s our future.”

The following is how our U.S. Department of State describes the climate crisis: “Bold action to tackle the climate crisis is more urgent than ever. The record-breaking heat, floods, storms, drought, and wildfires devastating communities around the world underscore the grave risks we already face. Through our actions at home and our leadership abroad, the United States is doing its part to build a net zero-emission, resilient future that creates good jobs and ensures a healthy, livable planet for generations to come.

As for President Biden, he incorrectly claims he has declared a national emergency on climate. “In speaking to Ed Keable, superintendent of Grand Canyon National Park, while looking over the Grand Canyon at the Yaki Point lookout in Arizona on August 8, 2023, Biden incorrectly claims he has declared a national emergency on climate.”

“Pressed about Biden’s claim, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that Biden was referring to his decision last year to invoke the Defense Production Act to spur production of clean energy technologies.” When pressed again on whether he had actually declared a national emergency, Biden said: “Practically speaking, yes.

Media responds to climate alarmists

Fearmongering about climate change by climate alarmist has recently attracted positive media attention. On August 4, 2023, Stop the panicked fearmongering if we want to make the world better by Bjorn Lomborg and Jordan B. Peterson was published in the New York Post.

Some important facts noted: “Campaigners and news organizations play up fear, in the form of floods, storms and droughts, while neglecting to mention that reductions in poverty and increases in resiliency mean that climate-related disasters kill ever fewer people. Over the past century, such deaths have dropped 97%. Globally, however, cold kills nine times more people.” In an article by James Murphy in The New American dated August 4, 2023, Climate Scientist: Public Being Misinformed on a Massive Scale, Mr. Murphy sets forth the following:

According to Cliff Mass, a meteorologist who specializes in weather prediction and modeling at the University of Washington, “the climate has been radically warmer, particularly about a millennium ago, when the Medieval Warm Period occurred. For a time from 900 A.D. to 1300 A.D., Europe recorded that growing seasons were extended, grapes grew in Northern England, and Greenland — now essentially an ice island — was colonized.”

“If you really go back far enough there were swamps near the North Pole, and the other thing to keep in mind is that we‘re coming out of a cold period, a Little Ice Age from roughly 1600 to 1850,” Mass said.

“Certainly, the summer of 2023 has been a warm one in certain areas of the world — but is it record-breaking? Is it the warmest summer in 120,000 years, as many climate hysterics claim?”

“Well, since global temperature records — if they can even be reliably calculated — only go back as far as1979, it’s an impossible question to truly answer. But many weather observers appear to be saying that it’s probably not the warmest.”

Another recent article questioning global warming fear mongering was posted Friday, July 28, 2023 by Tammy Bruce for Amac (Association of Mature American Citizens), From Global Warming to Global “Boiling” the Left’s Fearmongering Gets Hotter.

As cited by Tammy Bruce: “Breaking news for global climate alarmists: Summer is always hot, and some summers are hotter than others. But Democrats and their leftist handlers want us to believe we’re experiencing the hottest summer ever so that they can come to our rescue with their all-purpose solution for every perceived crisis: make Big Government even bigger, fund it with ever-higher taxes, empower it to impose ever-more draconian regulations and force us all to fall in line and follow orders.”

“Instead of creating energy jobs in America and reducing our foreign trade deficit by selling more fossil fuel energy abroad, we are letting Saudi Arabia, Russia, Iran, and other nations meet global energy needs.”

Climate crisis claims refuted by scientists

Nobel Prize winner Dr. John Clauser, who has disagreed with President Joe Biden’s climate policies, was silenced by IMF after saying, “I don’t Believe There Is A Climate Crisis.”

Dr. Clauser was awarded a Nobel prize in 2021 for his work in the development of computer models to track global warming and won another for physics in 2022.

“Slated to present a talk at a seminar on climate models to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), his talk was canceled after Director of the Independent Evaluation Office for the IMF Pablo Moreno read the information for Clauser’s talk which questioned the climate crisis.”

“Clauser has been critical of other climate models for not taking into account the factor of visible light reflected by cumulus clouds that cover the earth and made a model that took it into account. Failing to incorporate the factor of clouds reflecting the light back into space overestimates climate temperature increases.”

Another climate scientist who questions the prevailing climate crisis narrative is Judith A. Curry, a prominent American climatologist and former chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

In a recent July, 2023 interview with New York Post’s John Stossel, Curry told Stossel that the “overwhelming consensus” is largely “manufactured”, pointing to a system where scientists gain more recognition, and subsequently, more funding by promoting catastrophic scenarios.

How Americans view climate change threats

A recent Pew Research Center poll dated 8/9/2023 reveals how Americans view climate change. “There’s a striking contrast between how Republicans and Democrats prioritize the issue. For Democrats, it falls in the top half of priority issues, and 59% call it a top priority. By comparison, among Republicans, it ranks second to last, and just 13% describe it as a top priority.”

Concluding thoughts

As posted recently by Craig Bushon, The United States CANNOT follow Great Britain’s economic suicide plan:

In his article Mr. Bushon lists ten global firsts by Great Britain in its fight against catastrophic climate change. “Not only is the United Kingdom a ‘global leader’ in delivering on Net Zero, it also comes second-to-none in at least ten key metrics.” Following are two of the metrics presented:

“Ban the internal combustion engine before a viable, secure and affordable alternative has been identified to replace it.”

“Pluck a completely random date out of the air for the start of the ban in 2030 without any strategic plan to produce more electricity, charging stations or affordable cars to support the only currently available EV alternative.”

Concerning energy industry fears, as Jack Phillips wrote in his article dated 7/30/2023, Energy Industry Fears White House Will Declare COVID-Like ‘Climate Emergency’:

“Some energy industry groups are expressing concern that the White House will declare a COVID-19-like emergency—but for the climate instead.”

“They’re leaning to that direction,” U.S. Oil and Gas Association President Tim Stewart told Just the News in an article published July 30. “If you grant the president’s emergency powers to declare a climate emergency, it’s just like COVID.”

As for the fires in Hawaii, President Joe Biden reportedly said he had “no comment” when asked this past Sunday evening, August 13th, about the rising death toll from the devastating Hawaii fires before heading home after spending a couple hours at his beach home on the Rehoboth beach.

As for the cause of the fires, leftist shills were quick to pin the blame on climate change; however, as Fox News reported, Clay Trauernicht, a professor and environmental management expert at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, threw cold water on the climate panicking by indicating the following in a thread of tweets :

“Hawaii’s fire problem is due to the vast areas of unmanaged, nonnative grasslands from decades of declining agriculture.”

“Blaming this on weather and climate is misleading. Hawaii’s fire problem is due to the vast areas of unmanaged, nonnative grasslands from decades of declining agriculture.”

“These savannas now cover about a million acres across the main Hawaiian Islands, mostly the legacy of land clearing for plantation agriculture and ranching in the late 1800s/early 1900s. The transformation to savanna makes the landscape way more sensitive to bad ‘fire weather’ — hot, dry, windy conditions. It also means we get huge buildups of fuels during rainy periods.”
