What Is GWBS?

Health and Science Segment for Sunday 020109

Hey folks.

This past Friday, I posted an Email I got from BG. It was an article that the Founder of the Weather Channel, John Coleman, wrote about the Scam that IS Global Warming.

What is GWBS? You can call it whatever you want. Global Warming Bad Science, Global Warming Big Scam. Hell, you can call it what it actually is. Global Warming BS. But whatever you chose to call it, there is one thing that you can not, and that is FACT. You also can not call it REAL Science. Please, refrain from making yourself sound like an idiot and say that there is a consensus and that the debate is over. There is none, and it is FAR from over.

Oh, I know we now have a "Climate Czar" I know we now have a President that is willing to help to create laws in reference to this Scam. But it is not REAL. Especially if you are like me and live in South Florida. It is 48 degrees right now as we speak and we have been in multiple cold fronts for a month and a half. Longer than any time since I have been here. Look around you. What do you SEE in reality? Look at the FACTS. Global Temperatures are on their way DOWN.

So I wanted to take a few minutes and discuss what John was talking about in a little greater detail. John Coleman wrote this.

The key players are now all in place in Washington and in state governments across America to officially label carbon dioxide as a pollutant and enact laws that tax we citizens for our carbon footprints.

Only two details stand in the way, the faltering economic times and a dramatic turn toward a colder climate. The last two bitter winters have led the public to be skeptical that any runaway global warning. There is now awareness that there may be reason to question whether CO2 is a pollutant and a significant greenhouse gas.

Of course there is. Remember back on November 23, 2008 I posted this. Lack Of Money Causes Interest In Saving The Planet To Dwindle I was talking about poor little South Korean President Lee Myung-Bak appealing for investment in "Green Energy", saying it would not only help the Environment but also boost the ailing World Economy. He was reduced to BEGGING because countries having some financial problems decided it really was NOT in their best interests to oppress their people even more.

I said this.

OK, if GWBS was REAL. Why would everyone NOT be MORE interested in GWBS than anything else? If we "kill the planet" what does it matter HOW much money you do or do not have? If the world really was going to end, would that NOT be more important?

No because the World is NOT going to end, even if the Chicken Little Crowd want you to believe it is. Those pushing the hardest for GWBS, will not put out their money for it, but yet want the Government to FORCE you to pay for it. If you have no money to give them, then they just stop the push. Like I said, if it was real, nothing else would be more important. Back to Mr. Coleman

How did we ever get to this point where bad science is driving big government? And how will we ever stop it?

The story begins with an Oceanographer named Roger Revelle. He served with the Navy in World War II. After the war he became the Director of the Scripps Oceanographic Institute in La Jolla in San Diego, California. Revelle saw the opportunity to obtain major funding from the Navy for doing measurements and research on the ocean around the Pacific Atolls where the US military was conducting atomic bomb tests. He greatly expanded the Institute's areas of interest and among others hired Hans Suess, a noted Chemist from the University of Chicago, who was very interested in the traces of carbon in the environment from the burning of fossil fuels. Revelle tagged on to Suess studies and co-authored a paper with him in 1957. The paper raises the possibility that the carbon dioxide might be creating a greenhouse effect and causing atmospheric warming. It seems to be a plea for funding for more studies. Funding, frankly, is where Revelle's mind was most of the time.

Next Revelle hired a Geochemist named David Keeling to devise a way to measure the atmospheric content of Carbon dioxide. In 1960 Keeling published his first paper showing the increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and linking the increase to the burning of fossil fuels.

These two research papers became the bedrock of the science of global warming, even though they offered no proof that carbon dioxide was in fact a greenhouse gas. In addition they failed to explain how this trace gas, only a tiny fraction of the atmosphere, could have any significant impact on temperatures.

They STILL haven't folks. There is NO real Science involved at all. You can see videos of Mr. Coleman talking about this, over at our friend D.S. Hartford's website HERE. It really is a great site you should take a second and check it out.

Now let me take you back to the 1950s when this was going on. Our cities were entrapped in a pall of pollution from the crude internal combustion engines that powered cars and trucks back then and from the uncontrolled emissions from power plants and factories. Cars and factories and power plants were filling the air with all sorts of pollutants. There was a valid and serious concern about the health consequences of this pollution and a strong environmental movement was developing to demand action. Government accepted this challenge and new environmental standards were set. Scientists and engineers came to the rescue. New reformulated fuels were developed for cars, as were new high tech, computer controlled engines and catalytic converters. By the mid seventies cars were no longer big time polluters, emitting only some carbon dioxide and water vapor from their tail pipes. Likewise, new fuel processing and smoke stack scrubbers were added to industrial and power plants and their emissions were greatly reduced, as well.

But an environmental movement had been established and its funding and very existence depended on having a continuing crisis issue. So the research papers from Scripps came at just the right moment. And, with them came the birth of an issue; man-made global warming from the carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels.

What do you think Obama and the Left are doing? They are employed in the same tact. Crisis after crisis. Remember President Obama's Chief of Staff even said this.

"Never let a serious crisis go to waste. What I mean by that is it's an opportunity to do things you couldn't do before."

That is why the Left ALWAYS wants you in Crisis mode. This way, they can come in and rescue you. You have to give up a little freedom. You have to listen to them and do whatever they tell you, because they are here to help, and they are smarter than you.

Revelle and Keeling used this new alarmism to keep their funding growing. Other researchers with environmental motivations and a hunger for funding saw this developing and climbed aboard as well. The research grants began to flow and alarming hypothesis began to show up everywhere.

The Keeling curve showed a steady rise in CO2 in atmosphere during the period since oil and coal were discovered and used by man. As of today, carbon dioxide has increased from 215 to 385 parts per million. But, despite the increases, it is still only a trace gas in the atmosphere. While the increase is real, the percentage of the atmosphere that is CO2 remains tiny, about 41 hundredths of one percent.

Several hypothesis emerged in the 70s and 80s about how this tiny atmospheric component of CO2 might cause a significant warming. But they remained unproven. Years have passed and the scientists kept reaching out for evidence of the warming and proof of their theories. And, the money and environmental claims kept on building up.

Back in the 1960s, this global warming research came to the attention of a Canadian born United Nation's bureaucrat named Maurice Strong. He was looking for issues he could use to fulfill his dream of one-world government. Strong organized a World Earth Day event in Stockholm, Sweden in 1970. From this he developed a committee of scientists, environmentalists and political operatives from the UN to continue a series of meeting.

Strong developed the concept that the UN could demand payments from the advanced nations for the climatic damage from their burning of fossil fuels to benefit the underdeveloped nations, a sort of CO2 tax that would be the funding for his one-world government. But, he needed more scientific evidence to support his primary thesis. So Strong championed the establishment of the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. This was not a pure climate study scientific organization, as we have been led to believe. It was an organization of one-world government UN bureaucrats, environmental activists and environmentalist scientists who craved the UN funding so they could produce the science they needed to stop the burning of fossil fuels. Over the last 25 years they have been very effective. Hundreds of scientific papers, four major international meetings and reams of news stories about climatic Armageddon later, the UN IPCC has made its points to the satisfaction of most and even shared a Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore.

At the same time, that Maurice Strong was busy at the UN, things were getting a bit out of hand for the man who is now called the grandfather of global warming, Roger Revelle. He had been very politically active in the late 1950's as he worked to have the University of California locate a San Diego campus adjacent to Scripps Institute in La Jolla. He won that major war, but lost an all important battle afterward when he was passed over in the selection of the first Chancellor of the new campus.

He left Scripps finally in 1963 and moved to Harvard University to establish a Center for Population Studies. It was there that Revelle inspired one of his students to become a major global warming activist. This student would say later, "It felt like such a privilege to be able to hear about the readouts from some of those measurements in a group of no more than a dozen undergraduates. Here was this teacher presenting something not years old but fresh out of the lab, with profound implications for our future!" The student described him as "a wonderful, visionary professor" who was "one of the first people in the academic community to sound the alarm on global warming,"


Because he CREATED it. He was not sounding any alarms. He was and the Chicken Little crowd CONTINUES to CREATE the Crisis. It's not real.

That student was Al Gore. He thought of Dr. Revelle as his mentor and referred to him frequently, relaying his experiences as a student in his book Earth in the Balance, published in 1992.

So there it is, Roger Revelle was indeed the grandfather of global warming. His work had laid the foundation for the UN IPCC, provided the anti-fossil fuel ammunition to the environmental movement and sent Al Gore on his road to his books, his move, his Nobel Peace Prize and a hundred million dollars from the carbon credits business.

Ah, yes. Al Gore. Back in the day, they called people like Al, Snake Oil Salesmen. They stroll into town, convince people that they are sick, when CLEARLY they are not, then tell them HE has the cure. All they have to do is PAY HIM, and they will get better.

Seriously folks, a hundred million dollars from the carbon credits business. Let me illustrate just how idiotic the whole Carbon Credit thing is AGAIN. You have three feet of water flooding your house, I have none. You pay me for the permission to say you have NO water. You are now flood free. Yet, your feet and legs are still wet. The water went NOWHERE. But hey, I made some money and no one is allowed to say you have a flood anymore, because you paid me. {Smile}

What happened next is amazing. The global warming frenzy was becoming the cause celeb of the media. After all the media is mostly liberal,

Mostly OWNED by Soros and the Left. Morning Conference calls with the Chief of Staff, ETC.

loves Al Gore,

He helps them make money.

loves to warn us of impending disasters and tell us "the sky is falling, the sky is falling".

{Laughing} The Chicken Little Crowd.

The politicians and the environmentalist loved it, too.

Power, control, and money.

But the tide was turning with Roger Revelle. He was forced out at Harvard at 65 and returned to California and a semi retirement position at UCSD. There he had time to rethink Carbon Dioxide and the greenhouse effect. The man who had inspired Al Gore and given the UN the basic research it needed to launch its Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was having second thoughts. In 1988 he wrote two cautionary letters to members of Congress. He wrote, "My own personal belief is that we should wait another 10 or 20 years to really be convinced that the greenhouse effect is going to be important for human beings, in both positive and negative ways." He added, "…we should be careful not to arouse too much alarm until the rate and amount of warming becomes clearer."

Yeah but the money train is speeding down the track and NO ONE that is going for the ride wants to get off. So? Do not listen to the guy the started it all, he's just a Kook.

And in 1991 Revelle teamed up with Chauncey Starr, founding director of the Electric Power Research Institute and Fred Singer, the first director of the U.S. Weather Satellite Service, to write an article for Cosmos magazine. They urged more research and begged scientists and governments not to move too fast to curb greenhouse CO2 emissions because the true impact of carbon dioxide was not at all certain and curbing the use of fossil fuels could have a huge negative impact on the economy and jobs and our standard of living. I have discussed this collaboration with Dr. Singer. He assures me that Revelle was considerably more certain than he was at the time that carbon dioxide was not a problem.

Shut up shut up! You are going to ruin a good thing here.

Did Roger Revelle attend the Summer enclave at the Bohemian Grove in Northern California in the Summer of 1990 while working on that article? Did he deliver a lakeside speech there to the assembled movers and shakers from Washington and Wall Street in which he apologized for sending the UN IPCC and Al Gore onto this wild goose chase about global warming? Did he say that the key scientific conjecture of his lifetime had turned out wrong? The answer to those questions is, "I think so, but I do not know it for certain". I have not managed to get it confirmed as of this moment. It's a little like Las Vegas; what is said at the Bohemian Grove stays at the Bohemian Grove. There are no transcripts or recordings and people who attend are encouraged not to talk. Yet, the topic is so important, that some people have shared with me on an informal basis.

Roger Revelle died of a heart attack three months after the Cosmos story was printed. Oh, how I wish he were still alive today. He might be able to stop this scientific silliness and end the global warming scam.


Al Gore has dismissed Roger Revelle's Mea culpa as the actions of senile old man.

Told ya so. He's a Kook. Just ignore him.

And, the next year, while running for Vice President, he said the science behind global warming is settled and there will be no more debate, From 1992 until today, he and his cohorts have refused to debate global warming and when they are asked about we skeptics, they insult us and call us names.

There is no consensus. There is REALLY no consensus at all. They will not debate it, espiecally against someone like John Coleman, because they can not win. They really can't. They do not have any REAL Science to back up what they say.

So today we have the acceptance of carbon dioxide as the culprit of global warming. It is concluded that when we burn fossil fuels we are leaving a dastardly carbon footprint which we must pay Al Gore or the environmentalists to offset. Our governments on all levels are considering taxing the use of fossil fuels. The Federal Environmental Protection Agency is on the verge of naming CO2 as a pollutant and strictly regulating its use to protect our climate. The new President and the US congress are on board. Many state governments are moving on the same course.

We are already suffering from this CO2 silliness in many ways. Our energy policy has been strictly hobbled by no drilling and no new refineries for decades. We pay for the shortage this has created every time we buy gas. On top of that the whole thing about corn based ethanol costs us millions of tax dollars in subsidies. That also has driven up food prices. And, all of this is a long way from over.


Yeah it also has caused riots, death and mayhem. Some engines are getting ruined from Ethanol as well. Not to mention, it is MORE of a pollutant than OIL!

And, I am totally convinced there is no scientific basis for any of it.

Global Warming. It is the hoax. It is bad science. It is a high jacking of public policy. It is no joke. It is the greatest scam in history.

Without a doubt. It IS the greatest Scam in history. I fear though, that as long as there are people making hundreds of millions of dollars, Governments can use it for power and control over private industries and private lives, GWBS will be around for a while. Even in the cold temperatures. Even in the face of REAL Science. In the hearts and minds of those that are afraid of they being the reason the planet is dying, GWBS will live on. The Scam continues.
