They will say anything and do anything if it meets their revolutionary goal to transform America. They have been telling you one thing when they knew the evidence, or it was their duty to know the evidence, contradicted their policies. (We are talking about hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars.)
Evidence from the world’s best sampling of surface temperatures shows that temperatures have been declining slightly in North America. Democrats like Chuck Schumer, Barack Obama, Jerry Brown, Barbara Boxer, Brian Schatz, Al Gore and others have been telling Americans that temperatures were rising and climate change/global warming is bad and caused by man, and specifically caused by man’s burning of fossil fuels. They have thrown a lot of our money at a problem that does not exist.
But these graphs (below) destroy their case. This is devastating news for politicians and those connected to them. The average global temperature has barely moved, according to NASA’s GISS modeling team in New York City. Further, if these graphs are overlayed with CO2 concentration trend, which is steeply sloped for the entire period, then the alarmist theory of catastrophic global warming is wrong, that is, the theory is scientifically falsified. In addition, NASA imaging shows that Earth has been greening as CO2 is rising during the period but temperatures have been virtually flat during the period. Climate is relatively insensitive to CO2 concentration. Plants are sensitive.
Compounding embarrassment for Democrat socialists, NOAA is charged by a respected internal whistleblower with faking temperature data in a peer-reviewed article so that temperatures appear to be rising. (If in fact that were real data, but it is not, it would have been evidence against “the pause.” Faked evidence was conveniently published in a science journal to influence politicians and public opinion in the 2015 UN Paris Climate talks. This is a RICO act crime.
The best satellite temperature data show only very slowly rising global temperatures, meanwhile CO2 concentration in air has been rising steeply. CO2 and therefore burning of fossil fuels are not causing significant warming.
Why do these politicians want us to pay billions of dollars for the rest of our lives, not to mention disrupting the social order, to solve a climate crisis that does not exist? James Woods leads us to the answer.
