We are so lucky that Al Gore's "true planetary emergency" did not take place. He predicted it ten years ago at the Sundance Film Festival where his documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," premiered. It was the result of an environmental crusade he embarked upon that would make him a billionaire, a Nobel Prize and a Golden Globe winner – "Educating the masses that global warming is about to toast our ecology and our way of life."
His dire predictions that the planet will be flooded, islands will be swallowed up by the melting of the glaciers, and the planet will roast did not happen. The surface temperatures have increased in some areas, thanks to El Nino, a natural event, not because of anthropogenic CO2, the gas of plant life.
Dr. John Christy, Director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama Huntsville, is quoted:
"The fastest warming place on Earth over the past 37 years has been in the Arctic Ocean north of the Svalbard archipelago, where temperatures have been rising 0.5 C (about 0.9 degrees F) per decade. The fastest cooling spot was over the eastern Antarctic near Dome C. Temperatures there have been falling at the rate of 0.41 C (about 0.74 degrees F) per decade."
According to Dr. Roy Spencer, the global-average warmth during El Nino is caused by the solar energy but also by the vertical circulation of the Pacific Ocean basin.
"The short answer is that, during El Nino, there is an average decrease in the vertical overturning and mixing of cold, deep ocean waters with solar-heated warm surface waters. The result is that the surface waters become warmer than average, and deeper waters become colder than average. The opposite occurs during La Nina."
Non-scientists confuse weather events with climate and base their decision to support the anthropogenic global warming theory now termed climate change on "consensus science," which would be a derisive designation if the stakes were not so expensive for humanity. Consensus means agreement of opinion; science is based on fact, not opinion. Data seem to contradict supporters of the climate change industry, but it does not slow down their rabid assault on civilization. Real scientists—labeled deniers and skeptics—are marginalized, ridiculed, fired, and even made subjects of inquiries resembling witch hunts.
Cashing in billions and trillions on weather and on climate that has been changing for millennia, on fear of planetary Armageddon, is just one aspect of the nefarious Agenda 21, a document signed in 1992 by 178 countries, including the United States, whose linchpin is Sustainable Development, controlling almost every aspect of business activity and human existence, now expanded into Agenda 2030, as some dubbed it "Agenda 21 on steroids."
The fact, that Congress has not ratified the 40-chapter document has not stopped every administration since to implement Agenda 21 through non-governmental organizations (NGOs) who received grants from the federal government and then distributed those funds around the country to entice them to accept and implement Agenda 21 at the state and local levels.
Destroying capitalism and rearranging life in accordance with the dreams of elitist one world bureaucrats, rewilding the planet and reintroducing grey wolves, high-rise mixed-use buildings with tiny apartment living, population control, replacement of cars with light rail and biking, and elimination of suburbia and of private property is truly the plan behind Agenda 21. Its environmentalist "useful idiots" supporters have not bothered to read the ample document released under the aegis of United Nations.
Man has not been responsible for climate change over the millennia—the Vostock ice core samples have proven that; nor was man responsible for the Little Ice Age in the Middle Ages that had caused famine and death due to shortened food growing seasons and freezing temperatures that even affected Napoleon's unprepared army in Russia.
John Kerry told the crowd at COP21 conference in Paris that global warming is junk science, yet they are still going to fleece us with the fake climate change industry fees and taxes.
"The fact if that even if every single American citizen biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels out of their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow we eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what, that still wouldn't be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world. If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions, it wouldn't be enough. Not when more than 65 percent of the world's pollution comes from the developing world."
As the planet did not cooperate to deliver the global warming they had hoped for, the radical environmentalists renamed it climate change – and it is a very profitable industry of renewables, carbon swaps, solar panels, biofuels, and wind turbines.
Even though the billionaire father of the global new world order Agenda 21, now renamed Agenda 2030, the Canadian Maurice Strong, passed away on November 27, 2015, there are important supporters who have picked up the fleecing torch of "climatism," a potential cash cow worth trillions of dollars.
In 1976, Maurice Strong was the head of the newly created Petro-Canada, advised the gas industry, and made billions in oil and carbon trade-offs. He was alleged to have been a member of the Board of Directors of the privately-owned Chicago Climate Exchange, "the world's first and North America's only legally binding greenhouse gas emissions registry reduction system for emission sources and offset projects in North America and Brazil."
Fox News called Maurice Strong the "godfather of the environmental movement," the founding director of the U.N. Environment Program (UNEP) in Nairobi. It is interesting that China was the place where the "self-declared, life-long socialist" chose to live for a while, in "one of the world's biggest producers of industrial pollution, [which] has been profiting from the trading of carbon emission credits – thanks to heavily politicized U.N.-backed environmental deals engineered by Strong in the 1990s."
The whole agenda pushed by the U.N. hurts the interests of the American people. Congressman Mike Rogers (R-AL) has introduced a bill to restore U.S. sovereignty and withdraw U.S. from the U.N., a corrupt organization dubbed the "dictators club." The bill, titled The American Sovereignty and Restoration Act of 2015 (H.R. 1205), faces an uphill battle as Congress seems unwilling to make and pass laws that represent the interests of the American people.
In Siskiyou County, the fifth largest county by land mass in California, on the Oregon border, ranching has kept the area unspoiled, but the environmentalists have decided to reintroduce the grey wolf, endangering 45,000 people and the ranchers' herds of cattle grazing freely on the land. The city residents believe that the introduction of "majestic predators howling in some distant corner of their state" is romantic. Nobody really understands that rewilding at the expense of humans is one of the goals of Agenda 21.
Andrea Hutchinson transformed herself from a housewife and mother to agricultural activist in Canton, Oklahoma, where her family homesteaded in Dewey County in 1893, after hearing many horror stories of farmers fighting to keep their farms, property rights, and their land under the assault of "visioning committees," environmentalist NGOs, and U.N. Agenda 21's ICLEI operatives who have infiltrated boards of supervisors and zoning boards across the country. She wants her family to be able to continue the ranching tradition. The stories she heard ranged from "drones, abuse of the EPA, to threats of Endangered Species destroying livelihoods."
In a period of natural drought, Save the American River Association advocated that "retiring and curbing water rights for 300,000 acres of contaminated land farmed in the San Joaquin Valley would cost approximately $1 billion" in compensation to farmers, "a reasonable price to pay to stop the poisoning of California's environment" and it "would free up 455,000 acre-feet of water annually." Would this "contaminated land" in San Joaquin Valley, asked Katy Grimes, be the 600 farms along I-5 that produce $1 billion worth of food each year? These are not unsustainable crops; retiring them is a war on agriculture, on our ability to feed Americans.
It is interesting that the water "rationers" are considering such drastic measures when, according to California officials, wet weather added 6.4 billion gallons of fresh water to Lake Tahoe (2 inches) and new snow is at "136 percent of normal levels." The snowpack was measured in Sierra Nevada at 54 inches.
Destroying farms and taking as many out of production as possible, endangering food production and survival, would help achieve another goal of Agenda 21 – depopulation. We seem to have exceeded the planet's "carrying capacity." Christiana Figueres, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, said in 2015 that the entire global warming hoax was designed in order to destroy capitalism. "Really, we should make every effort to change those numbers [population] because we are already, today, exceeding the planet's planetary carrying capacity," Figueres claimed. This is an outrageous statement, particularly when we look at the low fertility rates in the developed world, way below replacement values.
Once suburbia is destroyed and the land given back to wilderness, the population will be moved into high-rise, mixed-use micro apartments, stacked and packed, ranging from 150-360 square feet, mostly smaller than the average hotel room. It is like sticking people into closets. Promoting living in Mega Cities, Christiana Figueres praised the high-rise living because renters can grow their food on terraces, collect rainwater on the roof, and get their electricity from solar panels on balconies/roofs. What can possibly go wrong with such an unsustainable scenario?
Speaking at the anti-COP21 climate summit in Paris, Dr. Istvan Marko, professor at Universite Catholique de Louvain in Belgium and co-author of The Bankruptcy of Climatism, said, "All conclusions being reached by the IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] are actually flawed conclusions." The dogma of "climatism" is perpetuated in spite of ample evidence to the contrary because governmental research grants come with strings attached to this fake religion of anthropogenic global warming.
Marko said, "It is almost like a religion, you know, you have the original sin, the original sin is carbon dioxide, and the one who committed it is the human being. So we all have to repent."
In his speech at the summit, "The Nostradamuses of Climate Change and Their Erroneous Prophecies," Dr. Marko repeated what all thinking humans already know: CO2 is the gas of plant life and our oxygen. "The worst thing that can happen is decreasing the amount of carbon dioxide in the air." Greenhouses add more CO2 in the air because their plants thrive on carbon dioxide.
Thanks to CO2, "there is a greening around the world." According to Dr. Randall Donohue, findings of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), in collaboration with the Australian National University (ANU), revealed that, during 1982-2010, an eleven percent increase in "CO2 fertilization" has increased the foliage in arid areas of Australia, North America, the Middle East, and Africa.
All this "climatism" is not about saving the planet, "It's the slow erosion of your own individual liberty, that's what is at stake with COP21." He stated that for half the annual cost of the Kyoto Protocol ($150 billion), people in the third world could have running water, electricity, food, and education.
Would it not be better to solve real problems instead of chasing problems that do not exist, creating a profitable climate change industry while enabling the U.N. bureaucrats to live a lavish lifestyle, jet-setting around the world to promote their hoax?Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
