The Ultimate Snipe Hunt

Only it's not a prank.

It's real, and it's diabolical.

It might be the the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on mankind, and it's getting very close to succeeding.

Posing for Al Gore.  Polar Bears can swim over 200 miles
It was originally called global warming, until people started noticing that the climate was getting cooler. In fact it's been getting cooler for the past 10 years or so.   

Instead of admitting they might have been wrong, they simply renamed what has become like a religion to them; climate change. I guess they will stick with that, since it covers just about everything.

Ian Plimer, Australia's most prestigious scientist and professor in the school of  Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Adelaide, in his book Heaven and Earth, points out that the "Dark Ages" (roughly from 535 - 900 AD) were not only years when almost no human progress was achieved, but were literally DARK.

"It was a terrible time to be alive. Sudden cooling took place.  It was cold; there were wars, famines,
changing empires and the stress humans succumbed to the plague. Around 540 trees almost stopped growing flooded bog oaks and timber from this time have very narrow growth rings.  It was a global event because it is also recorded in tree rings from Ireland, England, Siberia, North and South America. The weather of Constantinople was described by Copropius:

"the sun gave forth its light without brightness, like the moon during the whole year and it seemed exceedingly like the Sun in eclipse, for the beams it shed were not clear, nor such as it is accustomed to shed"

A similar account was given by John of Ephesus:

"The sun became dark and the darkness lasted for 19 months. Each day it shone for about 4 hours and still this light was only a feeble shadow...the fruits did not ripen and the wine tasted like sour grapes."


Ian Plimer (Hated by the Left)

Plimer says that , "The Dark Ages ended as quickly as they began as the world became warm again. The  Medieval Warming  from 900 to 1280 was followed by two decades of very changeable weather as the Medieval Warming changed to the ensuing Little Ice Age. The Medieval Warming was not all beer and skittles, because there was a cold period from 1040 to 1080 AD when the sun was very inactive. "



 The Medieval Warming is just one of the many warm periods that Earth has enjoyed without any help from humans and and their automobiles and Big Oil and the Koch Brothers.

Nature sure is something!

I can't keep up with what the disciples of the Church of Global Warming believe, because it keeps changing. But I think they were originally saying something like the "Planet has never experienced something as potentially devastating as the possibility that the man is causing the temperature to rise maybe as much as 2 degrees in the next 100 years. The planet will die!  Oh, the humanity!


Al Gore
So far their "computer models and predictions have all been proven wrong (Five years ago, Al Gore
predicted that the Polar Ice Caps would have melted by now; in reality they have increased 50% since 2012.)

Instead of admitting they were wrong about just everything, they now say that they have always claimed that it was unpredictable, and that's why they were right all along.

(If you can explain that logic, then surely I can teach my cat to learn algebra.)

Most of the "Scientists" who are going along with this "man made Climate Change Hoax" are being paid by the Federal government which has spent millions of dollars on Grants that only go to those who support the Hoax.  No money goes to the skeptics, or Deniers who many believers think should be jailed.


Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk
Hence, the government has purchased its own cheer leading squad that is in charge of advising Congress.
Andrew Mountford of the Daily Mail writes that,
"Climatologists base their doom-laden predictions of the Earth’s climate on computer simulations.
But these have long been the subject of ridicule because of their stunning failure to predict the pause in warming – nearly 18 years long on some measures – since the turn of the last century
Global Warmists "prove" Arctic Ice has melted.

In recent days a new scandal over the integrity of temperature data has emerged, this time in America, where it has been revealed as much as 40 per cent of temperature data there are not real thermometer readings.
Many temperature stations have closed, but rather than stop recording data from these posts, the authorities have taken the remarkable step of ‘estimating’ temperatures based on the records of surrounding stations. 
So vast swathes of the data are actually from ‘zombie’ stations that have long since disappeared. This is bad enough, but it has also been discovered that the US’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is using estimates even when perfectly good raw data is available to it – and that it has adjusted historical records.
Why should it do this? Many have noted that the effect of all these changes is to produce a warmer present and a colder past, with the net result being the impression of much faster warming."

I think that the majority of Americans no longer believe man made global warming.  However, it is continuing to be pushed by the "progressives" and others whose goal in life it to control others. Unfortunately, our President and many of our "leaders" are continuing to push for it.
I don't think they even believe it anymore, but they zealously campaign for it because it will reward them and their followers with what they desire most in life:  More Power and Control.

All we will get is the loss of our freedom and confiscatory taxes.

Speaking of the Dark Ages, can you say, breathing tax?

My thanks to my old Piedmont friend Richard Ratcliffe who introduced me to Ian Plimer's Heaven and Earth book. Richard was one of those who went to Tech but re-connected with me via the Internet. He and Bob Ellis have been friends since grammar school.
