Fraud upon Michigan and the poor.

Our economy is the victim of fraud.   The “green” movement, a bastardization of a reasonable desire to have clean air, water, and living environments, using CO2 as the culprit for warming has been responsible for over reaching legislation, and the panic driven scattering of logic which has brought us where we are. It has created a hysteria that screamed “We must do something!!” And those who could… did.  They imposed law and tariff, and even now threaten to do more with Cap & Trade..  Costing taxpayers, and ultimately, jobs.

But they are wrong, and one agency which is a part of the very government which proposes to “do more,” has determined that the global warming we had experienced (we are in a cooling cycle now) was due to [insert drum roll here] the sun.  That snake oil salesman, Al Gore, who either bought in for his own ends, or did so and profited coincidentally, is wrong, according to NASA. Michigan, which has seen CAFE standards raised to a level which has bankrupted two of the major car companies, and laid the groundwork for an irreversible destruction upon all the supporting industry here, is the victim of Gore and his mentor James Hansen’s fraud.

Who is James Hansen? He is the “chicken little” of the day.  He is the  father of the fraud known as Global Warming:

William Gray, a professor of atmospheric science at Colorado State University, also describes Hansen’s belief in a man-made global-warming catastrophe as “almost religious” and says he “never understood how [Hansen] got such a strong voice” in the debate. Gray’s efforts to predict hurricanes also lead him to question Hansen’s computer models. “He doesn’t have the clouds in right, and he doesn’t have the deep ocean circulation,” Gray says. “It’s a giant scam in my view.”

That’s right, a giant scam, a con, and with 200+ million marks to be milked, squeezed, and held as hostages by those who roll along with the plan, and profit from it.  200+ million suckers buying into the mental illness of one man, and further perpetuated for profit and power by many others.

Michigan in particular, has paid the price through its deep reliance on the automaking sector and travel for its economic vitality.  The cost of fuels and electricity have skyrocketed as a result of the fear mongering caused by Hansen and popularized by Gore.  The poor will again pay that larger percentage of their income to merely go to work due to the eager capitulation of congress to mandate even further, supporting higher energy costs, and limits on new fuel discoveries and use.

The country, the world, and Michigan is hurting.  But its not from Global warming, but rather the blind acceptance of a “green” religion that had no basis in fact.

Now we see if our leadership will “change course.”  Will we watch as excuses are made to hold onto unrealistic economy damaging policies that were initiated under this fraud of CO2 as damaging to our planet?  Perhaps, but only if we allow them to think we don’t know.  All I know is Michigan Winters are still pretty cold.

    You said it!

    The green movement is an absolute scam. The sick part of it that many in government are getting heavily lobbied by the ‘green energy’ proponents like T. Boone Pickens to pass legislation to mandate this nonsense. Then those same Government officials will raise our taxes so they have more control over our lives. It’s a lose lose for average citizens.

    First of all, great website. I found it through a link from Michelle Malkin’s blog.

    Much of our the warming that is attributed to CO2 can easily be attributed to other manmade factors. First, the rural weather station drop out during the 80s. Secondly, poorly placed weather stations that are not measuring climate change but urban warming. Lastly, the computerized adjustments that groups like NASA make tend to make older temperatures lower and more recent temperatures higher.

    In the 1980’s, as money became tight for countries like Russia, Canada and even the US, many rural and hard to reach weather stations stopped reporting their results. Fewer rural stations in northern areas have led to an average of more urban weather stations over the world. Since urban stations tend to be warmer than rural stations due to cars, homes, sewage, airplanes, concrete and so on, this led to a dramatic increase in the average of world temperatures. See: http://wattsupwiththat.com/2008/03/06/weather-stations-disappearing-worldwide/

    The goal of placing weather stations is to measure temperature in a way that will help represent the temperature of a region. Many of the sites have been compromised by placing ease of access over the integrity of the data. Many sites have been placed at sewage plants, airports, rooftops, parking lots, or many other poorly conceived sites. At http://surfacestations.org/ you can see a well sited station versus a poorly sited station and the very different temperature records of these two nearby weather stations. According to Surfacestations.org, 89% of the surface stations suffer from poor siting that lead to 1 degree or more difference over the last century. How much are we claiming that the world warmed over the last century?

    The last piece of the puzzle falls into the realm of homoginization of data through reporting centers like NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. Many of the weather stations records have been fiddled with. Steve McIntyre audited GISS’es temperature records and found that of the 7364 weather stations that they use in their figures, they adjust 4084 of them. 55% of those adjustments are positive adjustments over time. This leads to a sharper warming trend over time and ironically increases the urbanization effect on the temperature record that it was actually intended to nullify.

    So is Global Warming man made? If you figure in station drop out in rural areas, massive siting issues and the reporting organizations cooking the numbers, then yes Global Warming is entirely man made. If you asked if global warming is due to man made CO2, certainly you can not as the last 6 years have cooled dramatically and CO2 has risen.
