Global warming: second thoughts of an environmentalist by Fritz Vahrenholt
www.telegraph.co.uk – June 18, 2012
“For many years, I was an active supporter of the IPCC and its CO2 theory. Recent experience with the UN’s climate panel, however, forced me to reassess my position. In February 2010, I was invited as a reviewer for the IPCC report on renewable energy. I realised that the drafting of the report was done in anything but a scientific manner. The report was littered with errors and a member of Greenpeace edited the final version…
“… real, hard data from ice cores, dripstones, tree rings and ocean or lake sediment cores reveal significant temperature changes of more than 1°C, with warm and cold phases alternating in a 1,000-year cycle. These include the Minoan Warm Period 3,000 years ago and the Roman Warm Period 2,000 years ago. During the Medieval Warm Phase around 1,000 years ago, Greenland was colonised and grapes for wine grew in England. The Little Ice Age lasted from the 15th to the 19th century. All these fluctuations occurred before man-made CO2.
“Based on climate reconstructions from North Atlantic deep-sea sediment cores, Professor Gerard Bond discovered that the millennial-scale climate cycles ran largely parallel to solar cycles, including the Eddy Cycle which is – guess what – 1,000 years long. So it is really the Sun that shaped the temperature roller-coaster of the past 10,000 years…
“In the last 10 years the solar magnetic field dropped to one of its lowest levels in the last 150 years, indicating lower intensity in the decades ahead. This may have contributed to the halt in global warming and is likely to continue for a while, until it may resume gradually around 2030/2040. Based on the past natural climate pattern, we should expect that by 2100 temperatures will not have risen more than 1°C, significantly less than proposed by the IPCC…
“… the likely warming pause over the coming decades gives us time to convert our energy supply in a planned and sustainable way, without the massive poverty currently planned.”

Globalists Switching Gears: Royal Society Lecturer Says CO2 Not Effecting Earth’s Temperature

Hey, the SUN heats the earth!! Who knew? Are we still allowed to say that?
He makes his points very clear, but actually we need to disagree with him on his points about energy solutions. We should start using coal again before we lose everything. Windmills and solar panels won’t cut it.
Elite-funded propagandists said there was no such thing as clean coal because in their minds carbon dioxide (CO2) is dirty?! (And water vapor too?!) I guess plants must disagree! Most of the public have been misled into thinking CO2 is something dirty and polluting because of control-freaking liars given prominent attention in the corporate controlled media.
And then they started shutting down coal plants – using their powerful influence over governments – and told us to get ready for rationing and austerity forever. We need to switch off the elite-funded propagandists and media before it’s all over.
Contrary to their accusations that opponents to their propaganda are motivated by funds from the oil and coal industry, it’s actually the owners of the major energy suppliers who promote this message in order to shut down competition and restrict energy supply so that they can create a global authoritarian system of control.
I’m sorry to offend you, but I don’t want to be poor, and I don’t want others to live under rationing and authoritarianism. I think also we’ll be better off if we maintain our industry instead of shipping it overseas and shutting down power plants. Maybe if we can oppose this agenda effectively (including the globalist “free trade” agreements), people will get a chance to live comfortably in the future and have access to useful technology and proper medical care and not be carbon-taxed out of their homes because of the lies that many people want to believe.
