The great global warming fraud kills people

 By: Mark Luedtke

 

Five years ago, Al Gore declared the North Pole would be ice-free by Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013. Anybody with half a brain had a good laugh at Gore’s clown show and dismissed his prediction. That prediction has now been falsified, like we all knew it would be.

Similarly, in March of 2000, The Independent claimed snowfall was disappearing from our lives: “According to Dr. David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become ‘a very rare and exciting event.’ ‘Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,’ he said.”

As I write, over half the U.S. is covered in snow, the most in 11 years. Prediction failed. It wasn’t too many years after that prediction, in what became known as Climategate, a hero leaked a cache of Climatic Research Unit (CRU) emails to the Internet, showing CRU scientists and their comrades at the top of the great global warming fraud didn’t believe what they were telling the rest of us. While these fraudulent predictions are funny and may seem harmless, the reality is they get people killed.

On Dec. 16, the Dayton Daily News reported, “Slick roadways are causing several slide-off crashes throughout the area this morning. Around 4 a.m., reports of single vehicle crashes or slide-offs started to take over the dispatch priorities from the Middletown area to Ansonia in Darke County and to the east side of Springfield on Interstate 70. Officers were requesting salt crews to treat specific areas as they traveled secondary and primary roads and noticed dangerous conditions developing.”

The government is behind in taking care of the roads, and this isn’t just typical government malfeasance. Government officials were surprised by all the snow. In a related story, the Dayton Daily News warned of a salt shortage: “More than 14 inches of snow have already fallen in the Dayton area this winter season, which is 11 inches above normal. More precipitation has meant more work for local road crews and higher demand for salt, brine and related products. Fred Stovall, director of public works, said the City of Dayton has used about double the amount of salt used by this time last year.”

The article claimed this is the seventh snowiest start to winter in Dayton history. Other local governments, including Vandalia and Riverside, have worse shortages than Dayton. This is happening everywhere. It’s been worse to the south. Somebody made a grossly inaccurate prediction.

It wasn’t the “Old Farmer’s Almanac.” KASA.com reported in September: “The Dublin, N.H.-based ‘Old Farmer’s Almanac,’ at 222 [years old], is believed to be the oldest continuously published periodical in North America. It says a drop in solar activity and a change in ocean patterns are pointing to colder than average temperatures and higher than average snowfall totals.”

It also wasn’t the slightly less old “Farmer’s Almanac.” CBS News reported in August, “The 197-year-old publication that hits newsstands Monday predicts a winter storm will hit the Northeast around the time the Super Bowl is played at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands in New Jersey. It also predicts a colder than normal winter for two-thirds of the country and heavy snowfall in the Midwest, Great Lakes and New England.”

Those two predictions, so far, are very accurate. That’s because they’re based on historic observations of natural climate drivers that have served their customers well for two centuries. If local governments had paid attention to these predictions, roads would be safer.

But instead, they paid attention the prediction of the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The Dayton Daily News reported, “The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released its annual Winter Weather Outlook today predicting normal snowfall and temperatures for the Midwest this winter season.” Oops.

Instead of making predictions based on the scientific practice of making historical observations of natural climate drivers like the sun and ocean currents, NOAA made predictions driven by politics and based on computer games that were programmed to make it appear carbon dioxide is rapidly warming the planet, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

In a rational society, one based on voluntary exchange and property rights, NOAA would go bankrupt and we wouldn’t suffer any more consequences of its failure. But we live in a society dominated by government theft and coercion, so we can be sure somebody at NOAA got a promotion for this fantastic failure.

Similarly, the highest-paid Environmental Protection Agency fraud was recently busted for defrauding taxpayers out of a million or so dollars. He didn’t show up for work for 18 months, claiming he was working for the CIA in Pakistan. In reality, he was partying on taxpayers’ money. But this isn’t special. The great global warming fraud is about stealing billions from taxpayers every year to enrich the frauds. That’s the real outrage.

Because the climate hasn’t warmed for two decades, thankfully, the global warming frauds have been politically weakened, but they won’t go away. There’s too much stolen money at stake. They’ll keep killing people without conscience in order to get more of it.
