Scientific Misrepresentations and the Climate-Science Cartel

Abstract

For thirty years the climate-science cartel has served the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) by providing flawed scientific justification for its political goal of a world governance system. The climate-science cartel incorrectly claims increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide arises primarily from fossil-fuel burning and causes global warming. Actually, atmospheric carbon dioxide increases are driven from the oceans by increasing temperatures, as evidence indicates. The climate-science cartel subscribes to the proposition that aerosol particulates cool the climate, whereas greenhouse gases warm it. This proposition’s reliability is questioned by showing that the rise of the production of particulate-polluting fuels parallels the rise in temperatures during most of the 20th century. Carbon dioxide is not the enemy; air pollution, especially particulate pollution is. Global warming caused by particulate pollution can be reduced by minimising or stopping pollution-causing activities, burning cleaner fuels, and trapping pollutants more efficiently. IPCC models fail to include effects of decades of deliberate atmospheric-modification (geoengineering), a critical element of Earth’s radiation balance which invalidates all climate models based upon Earth’s radiation balance. Air pollution is the leading environmental cause of disease and death worldwide, and it is increasing at an alarming rate. Cited studies indicate that the unspoken atmospheric-modification by particulates, evidenced as coal fly ash, increases global warming and poses risk factors for many diseases, including lung cancer, neurodegenerative disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), as well as forest, bird, bee and insect die-offs, and other dangers to life on Earth. Geoengineering must be quickly and permanently halted.
