Science “Falsely So Called”
"O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called." —1st Timothy 6:20
“I am telling you Global Warming is a nonevent, a manufactured crisis and a total scam… It is all a scam, the result of bad science.” —John Coleman, Weather channel founder and lifelong meteorologist
Science is trustworthy, right? Science is supposed to be reliable, based upon fact, unprejudiced, and trustworthy, isn’t it? Well, think again. A lot of what passes for science these days is utter nonsense, pseudo-science (i.e., false science), and a lot of scientific fact is hidden from public view because it’s not politically correct. It is absurdly comical what is commonly mislabeled as “science” these days.
The “Discovery” channel recently produced a laughable documentary on Greenland's alleged “melting glaciers.” Oh boy! Here we go again with Global Warming. It's really a comedy. A team was flown in by helicopter to actually install special plastic covers over a 2-acre area to reflect the sun’s rays and help prevent the glacier from melting. They spent 3-days in 60 M.P.H. gusts of frigid wind, in chill factors well below zero, with millions of dollars worth of equipment and materials, to cover a mere 2-acres of the glacier. That’s like covering one grain of sand on the biggest beach in the world. They said it would cost $186,000,000,000 just to cover a small fraction of Greenland’s glaciers to combat the effects of Global Warming. Their major concern was that such a project would also require 21,000,000 helicopter trips, which would dump enormous amounts of Carbon Dioxide (i.e. greenhouse gases) into the atmosphere. The whole idea of preventing a glacier from melting is insane!
If indeed the earth’s glaciers are melting, attempting to stop them from melting by covering them with reflective material wouldn’t work. According to Global Warming proponents the earth’s temperature is increasing. So what good would it do to cover the glaciers? The sun’s rays are not the problem. This just shows the fallacy of Global Warming. One minute they claim that the earth’s temperature is rising, and then they set out to protect Greenland’s glaciers from the sun’s rays. Well, which is it, the sun’s rays or the higher temperatures on earth? If, as Global Warming proponents claim, the earth’s temperatures are rising, then protecting glaciers from the sun’s rays is a complete waste of time and money.
I’ve been reading about a “global warming tax” for some time now and I think this is the ultimate goal of all this scare-mongering… an international global warming tax! If you want the truth behind any agenda… follow the money. It's just a matter of time. Our taxes shouldn't be wasted on junk science.
You know, why didn’t we hear about Global Warming 30-years ago? Has planet earth changed that much in just a few decades? No! One violent volcanic eruption emits more gases and pollution into the earth’s atmosphere than all the cars and industries in America combined in just a single year. The sun itself generates enough radiation to penetrate the earth’s crust and maintain a molten core of lava. Who’s kidding who? How did mankind survive for Millenniums without combating the Global Warming boogie man?
Even the founder of the Weather channel and a lifelong meteorologist, John Coleman, has candidly stated publicly that Global Warming is a big scam. I’ve quoted the entire article here because it’s something that everyone needs to read…
It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a SCAM.
Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long term scientific data back in the late 1990's to create an allusion of rapid global warming. Other scientists of the same environmental wacko type jumped into the circle to support and broaden the "research" to further enhance the totally slanted, bogus global warming claims. Their friends in government steered huge research grants their way to keep the movement going. Soon they claimed to be a consensus.
Environmental extremist, notable politicians among them then teamed up with movie, media and other liberal, environmentalist journalists to create this wild "scientific" scenario of the civilization threatening environmental consequences from Global Warming unless we adhere to their radical agenda.
Now their ridicules manipulated science has been accepted as fact and become a cornerstone issue for CNN, CBS, NBC, the Democratic Political Party, the Governor of California, school teachers and, in many cases, well informed but very gullible environmental conscientious citizens. Only one reporter at ABC has been allowed to counter the Global Warming frenzy with one 15 minutes documentary segment.
I do not oppose environmentalism. I do not oppose the political positions of either party.
However, Global Warming, i.e. Climate Change, is not about environmentalism or politics. It is not a religion. It is not something you "believe in." It is science; the science of meteorology. This is my field of life-long expertise. And I am telling you Global Warming is a nonevent, a manufactured crisis and a total scam. I say this knowing you probably won't believe me, a mere TV weatherman, challenging a Nobel Prize, Academy Award and Emmy Award winning former Vice President of United States. So be it.
I suspect you might like to say to me, "John, look the research that supports the case for global warming was done by research scientists; people with PH D's in Meteorology. They are employed by major universities and important research institutions. Their work has been reviewed by other scientists with PH D's. They have to know a lot more about it than you do. Come on, John, get with it. The experts say our pollution has created an strong and increasing greenhouse effect and a rapid, out of control global warming is underway that will sky rocket temperatures, destroy agriculture, melt the ice caps, flood the coastlines and end life as we know it. How can you dissent from this crisis? You must be a bit nutty.
Allow me, please, to explain how I think this all came about. Our universities have become somewhat isolated from the rest of us. There is a culture and attitudes and values and pressures on campus that are very different. I know this group well. My father and my older brother were both PHD-University types. I was raised in the university culture. Any person who spends a decade at a university obtaining a PHD in Meteorology and become a research scientist, more likely than not, becomes a part of that single minded culture. They all look askance at the rest of us, certain of their superiority. They respect government and disrespect business, particularly big business. They are environmentalists above all else.
And, there is something else. These scientists know that if they do research and results are in no way alarming, their research will gather dust on the shelf and their research careers will languish. But if they do research that sounds alarms, they will become well known and respected and receive scholarly awards and, very importantly, more research dollars will come flooding their way.
So when these researchers did climate change studies in the late 90's they were eager to produce findings that would be important and be widely noticed and trigger more research funding. It was easy for them to manipulate the data to come up with the results they wanted to make headlines and at the same time drive their environmental agendas. Then their like minded PHD colleagues reviewed their work and hastened to endorse it without question.
There were a few who didn't fit the mold. They did ask questions and raised objections. They did research with contradictory results. The environmental elitists berated them brushed their studies aside.
I have learned since the Ice Age is coming scare in the 1970's to always be a skeptic about research. In the case of global warming, I didn't accept media accounts. Instead I read dozens of the scientific papers. I have talked with numerous scientists. I have studied. I have thought about it. I know I am correct when I assure you there is no run away climate change. The impact of humans on climate is not catastrophic. Our planet is not in peril. It is all a scam, the result of bad science.
I am not alone in this assessment. There are hundreds of other meteorologists, many of them PH D's, who are as certain as I am that this global warming frenzy is based on bad science and is not valid.
I am incensed by the incredible media glamour, the politically correct silliness and rude dismal of counter arguments by the high priest of Global Warming.
In time, a decade or two, the outrageous scam will be obvious. As the temperature rises, polar ice cap melting, coastal flooding and super storm pattern all fail to occur as predicted everyone will come to realize we have been duped.
The sky is not falling. And, natural cycles and drifts in climate are as much if not more responsible for any climate changes underway.
I strongly believe that the next twenty years are equally as likely to see a cooling trend as they are to see a warming trend.
Science has been politicized—not by the Right; but by the Left, which sees global warming, Darwinism, stem cell research, and innumerable other issues as tools to advance its agenda (and in many cases expand the reach of government). When liberals parade out scientists with white coats, debate is supposed to be silenced. But many of the high priests of science have something to hide—from blind intolerance of Biblical claims to greedy guarding of their federally financed research budgets. What a waste of tax-payer money!
"Science" means "the study of" something. Therefore, to qualify as legitimate science, there MUST be something to study. Evolution is a perfect example of FALSE science. There is nothing to study in evolution. Evolution CANNOT be studied! It CANNOT be tested? It CANNOT be monitored or examined? In fact, all available scientific evidence shows that evolution is NOT true in the least.
In the same manner, Global Warming is bad science, i.e., there are NO solid scientific research findings to support their doomsday scenario. The “evidence” at best is far-fetched and purely circumstantial. I remember hearing Al Gore claim several years back that massive flooding in China was caused by Global Warming. Such alleged “evidence” of Global Warming is ridiculous. Suspiciously, Gore and other Global Warming proponents have remained silent concerning record-breaking cold temperatures in recent years. For example: In 2007 New York City set an all-time low record of 59 degrees for the month of August. In January of 2004, Boston's Logan International Airport recorded a low of 3 below zero, two degrees chillier than the previous record for January 10, set in 1875. It was the city's coldest day since January 16, 1994, when thermometers registered 4 below. Meanwhile, on that day in New York City, Al Gore was giving a speech about the effects of global warming! In 2007, Chicago experienced the 6th coldest February on record since 1871 and the coldest February in nearly three decades. Global Warming? You decide!
Historical climate records clearly evidence that there are normal “cycles” of short-term and long-term weather patterns. Thus such terms as “El Nino” (warmer) and “La Nina” (cooler) are used to identify the normal temperature change patterns in the ocean. It is sad that many people are gullible enough to believe Global Warming exists simply because someone shows them a video of water flowing from a glacier. I remember as a kid seeing snow melting on the rooftop of the house and draining into the guitars, even though it was close to zero degrees outside. I noticed that big icicles dripped from the heat of sun, even though it was only 10 degrees outside. So why should it be surprising that water should flow from a glacier when the sun shines upon it? It is normal.
I saw a bumper sticker the other day which read... "I believe the Big Bang Theory... God spoke and BANG, it happened." I thought that was pretty good, and it is certainly Biblical. It is far more reasonable to believe the Bible; than it is to believe the hocus-pocus nonsense of a bunch of whacko scientists. Just as Evolution, Global Warming is a scam—a cleverly devised invention of greedy and dishonest people.
Greenland's Melting Ice Sheets Hoax!
Ye Must Be Born Again!
You Need HIS Righteousness!
