"Climate Science" in Shambles: Real Scientists Battle UN's Political Operatives: More Than 125 Significant Scandals Have Been Uncovered regarding Claims That Human Activity Is Causing the Earth to Overheat, and a Flood of Scientists Is Becoming "Skeptics."


Jasper, William F., The New American


It is the best of times, it is the worst of times--for science. Over the past several years, the world has been spectator to an alarming meltdown as one serious scandal after another has publicly exposed many of the world's most prestigious scientific organizations, institutions, and publications as being captives of rigid ideologues who employ rigged computer models, fraudulent "evidence," censorship, and intimidation to advance a radical "green" political agenda and to squelch genuine scientific inquiry and debate.

Some of the preeminent scientists involved in promoting global-warming alarmism have been disgraced and discredited, after being caught in flagrante in unethical and illegal activities. Even before the 2009 "Climategate" e-mail scandal, many leading scientists who had earlier been true believers in man-made global warming (anthropogenic global warming, or AGW) had begun jumping ship and joining the AGW skeptic side.Since then, the defections have turned into a veritable flood, making this one of the great untold stories of the major establishment media, which continue to trumpet the alarmist propaganda.

Two defections were particularly striking as world leaders and tens of thousands of delegates, NGO activists, and journalists gathered in Rio de Janeiro in June for the United Nations Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development. In an interview with the U.K. Guardian on the eve of the summit, James Lovelock, the British inventor, NASA scientist, author, and originator of the Gaia Hypothesis, mocked sustainable development as "meaningless drivel," and said the UN makes "a mess" of everything it gets involved with. In 2006, Lovelock, one of the world's most famous environmentalist gurus, asserted that due to global warming "billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable." He now says his predictions were "alarmist," and he criticizes his former comrades for having turned environmentalism into a "green religion." Lovelock also endorses nuclear power and expanded development of natural gas through hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking." But his ultimate heresy is his withering rejection of so-called "renewable energy," especially wind power, as a viable replacement for carbon-based fuels.

"We rushed into renewable energy without any thought," says Lovelock. "The schemes are largely hopelessly inefficient and unpleasant." He has upset many of his erstwhile green brethren for attacking wind turbines and wind farms as "ugly and useless."

Professor Fritz Vahrenholt is another recent green heretic. A founding father of Germany's environmental movement and a director of one of Europe's largest alternative energy companies, Vahrenholt stunned the "greens" in February of this year with publication of the climateskeptic book Die Kalte Sonne (The Cold Sun), which scorches the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other alarmists.Co-authored with noted geologist/ paleontologist Dr. Sebastian Liining, the book was published by one of Germany's premier book publishers and (amazingly) received hugely positive reviews in the major German media. On February 7, Germany's leading daily newspaper, Bild (16 million circulation), devoted a half page to the Vahrenholt story, under the headline: "The [CO.sub.2] Lie: Renowned team of scientists claim the climate catastrophe is fear-mongering by politics." BiId followed up with a series of stories on Vahrenholt's defection and the mounting evidence of massive fraud from the climate alarmists.

Germany's flagship weekly news magazine Der Spiegel featured a four-page exclusive interview with Vahrenholt. Europe's climate-alarmism industry was shellshocked. On June 18, two days before the opening of Rio+20, Vahrenholt sent another shock, with an op-ed in Britain's Telegraph entitled "Global warming: second thoughts of an environmentalist. …
