Global Warming Cracked Open

  1. 1. Global Warming Cracked Open: A Peek Inside April 28, 2008 Dr. Nicholas Drapela Department of Chemistry Oregon State University
  2. 2. Thank You in Advance • This is a sociopolitical talk • It includes opinions and analysis • Full disclosure: I am an OSU faculty member and my views are not those of the university • This talk is not sanctioned or sponsored by the university • You will probably not hear another like it on this campus • Permission requested to question authority
  3. 3. •
  4. 4. The Global Warming Phenomenon • What is taking place during our lifetime in our society? • Global Warming theory – Passion – Heated arguments – Accusations – Threats • More than a scientific theory • Why?
  5. 5. Reasons to Believe • Ask someone why they believe, or do not believe, in the Global Warming doctrine • Then ask yourself if those reasons appeal to reason or to authority
  6. 6. Preview • Global Warming doctrine is no longer just a scientific theory; it is a populist social and political tool • Many groups in our society benefit from the existence of the global warming doctrine • The coercion and propaganda used to advance this doctrine are disturbing, and have borrowed from other historical political movements • The benefactors of global warming theory are the rich and powerful; the losers are the rest of the world • Bigger picture implications
  7. 7. Part One The Engine
  8. 8. Government-Alarmist Cycle • Proposed government intervention • Increased government control • Decreased personal freedoms • Increased tax revenue • Money • Notoriety AlarmistsAlarmists GovernmentGovernment POWER $
  9. 9. Peripheral Social Engines Environmentalists (action) Globalists (control) Academia (money) Hollywood (popularity) Public (absolution) Students (focus) Media (hyperbole)
  10. 10. On the Bandwagon • “Rarely has such meager science provoked such an outpouring of popularization by individuals who do not understand the subject in the first place.” – MIT Meteorology Professor Richard Lindzen 1992
  11. 11. Oregon State University • Oregon Climate Change Research Institute • Established 2007 by Oregon State Legislature • National Search for director underway • What are the stated purposes of this institute? Source: OSU This Week, Volume 47, No. 17, Feb. 7, 2007
  12. 12. Oregon Climate Change Research Institute • Bring money to OSU • Become the authority in Oregon for legislators to cite • Oversee a “public information” campaign on global warming • Support the new Oregon Global Warming Commission • Assist government in implementing policies
  13. 13. Why Rock the Boat? • Doesn’t everyone win in this situation? • Isn’t it a good cause anyway? • Isn’t it good for the environment even if it’s wrong? • Does it really matter whether Global Warming doctrine is true or not?
  14. 14. Public Enlightenment • “That propaganda is good which leads to success…It is not propaganda’s task to be intelligent, its task is to lead to success.” – Joseph Goebbels, Minister for Public Enlightenment, National Socialist Party of Germany, 1933
  15. 15. Part Two Methods
  16. 16. Method 1 – Fear • “It is a good thing that global warming has become such a prevalent threat…I am glad for the threat of it. Fear has always been the strongest force of change among humans.” – John Tavares, OSU Barometer Column January 28, 2008
  17. 17. Fear and Propaganda • Fear has always been used to control and motivate • It is consistently and intentionally used to promote submission to the aims of global warming
  18. 18. IPCC Lead Author • “To capture the public imagination, we have to offer up some scary scenarios, make simplified dramatic statements and little mention of any doubts one might have. Each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective and being honest.” – Stephen Schneider, Author “The Genesis Strategy” – 2007 IPCC report
  19. 19. Fear in the Headlines • Headline: “World Must Act Now On Climate” • “The world must deal with climate change now—or pay a much higher price later (leaving) half the world’s population without adequate drinking water.” – AP article, March 2008
  20. 20. “The Enemy” • For control of a population, an enemy must be set up which is the cause of all the population’s problems • For Marxism, it was capitalists • For National Socialism, it was the Jews • What is it today?
  21. 21. The Perfect Enemy • "In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill.” – The Club of Rome “The First Global Revolution” 1991, page 104
  22. 22. In Their Own Words • “Climate change is mankind’s most important challenge. We know the enemy: It is named carbon.” – Angel Gurria, Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) secretary general, 2008 carbon
  23. 23. Method 2 – Marginalization • Global Warming skeptics are routinely marginalized as – Uneducated – Ignorant – Anti-environment – Uncommon – Fringe
  24. 24. The Denier • Skeptics are branded as “deniers” • They are immediately ignorant and/or evil
  25. 25. Demonization in History • To blindly accept that a certain group of people are all ignorant or evil is bigotry
  26. 26. Useful Bigotry • Bigotry is often ignored, as long as it’s used against “the enemy”
  27. 27. Al Gore on Global Warming Skeptics • “Those people are in such a tiny, tiny minority now. They’re almost like those who believe that the earth is flat…That demeans them a little bit, but it’s not that far off.” – “60 Minutes”, March 2008

  45. 45. “Big Oil Money” • Global Warming skeptics are often painted as being funded by oil companies • If there is money to be made, it is not in taking the skeptical view • Huge corporations tap into the global warming movement for profit • Continued funding for global warming research is dependent upon global warming existing
  46. 46. Method 3 – Silencing Opposition • In many present (and past) societies, thought is controlled by eliminating any opposing voices or ideas • Examples of countries today which limit access to free media – Iran – North Korea – China – Syria
  47. 47. Information Control by Intimidation • Concerted efforts are made today to suppress any information or individual critical of the Global Warming doctrine • It is common for people to be threatened today who speak out on this issue • Much of this has happened locally • “All opposition must be stamped into the ground.” – Sturmabteilung, 1921
  48. 48. A History of Intimidation and Censorship • 1988 – Prof. Lester Lave, Carnegie Mellon University, dismissed from a senate hearing for suggesting that Global Warming was not a settled science • 1989 – Meteorology Prof. Reginald Newell, MIT, lost NSF funding for data analyses that were failing to show net warming over the past century • 1990 – Paper critical to global warming theory submitted to Science Magazine by MIT Meteorology prof rejected without review
  49. 49. Threatening Weather? • Heidi Cullen (The Weather Channel) has recently urged that any on-air meteorologist who expresses skepticism regarding global warming be stripped of their credentials by the American Meteorological Society
  50. 50. Controlling the Media? • The morning of April 4, 2008, the BBC posted a story on their website entitled “Global Temperatures to Decrease” • It described how temperatures have not risen since 1998 and in fact are decreasing despite massive CO2 emission increases in the same time period • Immediately upon posting, a British environmental activist (Jo) wrote the following email to the BBC reporter in question…
  51. 51. BBC Email Transcript To: Roger Harrabin From: Jo Abbess Date: April 11, 2008 Time: 10:12am Subject: Correction Demanded Dear Roger, Please can you correct your piece published today entitled, “Global Temperatures to Decrease”? You should not mislead people into thinking that the sum total of the earth’s system is going to be cooler in 2008 than 2007. Thanks for your attention to the matter, and thanks for paying attention to all the facts and figures available. Jo
  52. 52. BBC Email Transcript To: Jo Abbess From: Roger Harrabin Date: April 11, 2008 Time: 10:22am Subject: Re: Correction Demanded Dear Jo, No correction is needed. If the Secretary-General of the World Meteor- ological Association tells me that global temperatures will decrease that’s what we’ll report. There are scientists who question whether warming will continue as projected by the IPCC. Best wishes, RH
  53. 53. BBC Email Transcript To: Roger Harrabin From: Jo Abbess Date: April 11, 2008 Time: 10:29am Subject: Correction Demanded Hi Roger, Personally, I think it’s highly irresponsible to play into the hands of skeptics who can promote the idea that Global Warming finished in 1998 when that’s so patently not true. As time goes by, the infant science of Climatology improves, so please do not do a disservice to your readership by leaving the door open to doubt about that. Jo
  54. 54. BBC Email Transcript To: Jo Abbess From: Roger Harrabin Date: April 11, 2008 Time: 10:49am Subject: Re: Correction Demanded The article makes all of these points quite clear. We can ignore the fact that skeptics have jumped on the lack of increase since 1998 and it is appearing now in general media. Best to tackle it and explain it, which is what we’ve done, or people will feel the debate is being censored, which makes them very suspicious. Roger
  55. 55. BBC Email Transcript To: Roger Harrabin From: Jo Abbess Date: April 11, 2008 Time: 11:24am Subject: Correction Demanded Hi Roger, Your word “debate”—this is not an issue of debate. This is an issue of emerging truth. It would be better if you did not quote the skeptics. Their voice is heard everywhere on every channel. They are deliberately obstructing the emergence of the truth. Otherwise, I would have to conclude that you are insufficiently educated to be able to know when you’ve been psychologically manipulated. And that would make you an unreliable reporter. I am about to send your comments to others for their contribution, unless you request I do not. You may appear in unfavorable light because it could be said that you’ve turned your head by the skeptics. Respectfully, Jo
  56. 56. BBC Email Transcript To: Jo Abbess From: Roger Harrabin Date: April 11, 2008 Time: 11:40am Subject: Re: Correction Demanded Have a look in 10 minutes; tell me if you’re happier. We’ve changed the headline and more. Note the page, date, and time have not been changed. Roger
  57. 57. BBC Story Changes • The BBC will not comment on the incident Original Story: “This would mean global temperatures have not risen since 1998, prompting some to question climate change theory.” Replaced with: “But this year’s temperatures would still be way above the average and we would soon exceed the record year of 1998 because of global warming induced by greenhouse gases.”
  58. 58. Method 4 – Corporate Propaganda • Effective propaganda takes big money • This must either come from – government – the wealthy elite, or – corporations
  59. 59. Propaganda Blitz • Currently, a $300,000,000 ad campaign is being carried out by Al Gore to advertize global warming • Gore says this publicity campaign is paid for by his personal profits from “An Inconvenient Truth” • Cost of campaign: – $300,000,000 • Gross receipts for “An Inconvenient Truth” – $24,000,000
  60. 60. Show Me the Money • Where is this massive influx of capital coming from? • Many corporations stand to profit hugely if global warming is true – “Green” energy companies – Ethanol manufacturers – Financial companies • Al Gore and others have invested heavily in these areas • The conflict of interest is staggering
  61. 61. NBC’s “Green Week” • Ostensibly devoted to environmental issues • Inordinate amounts of time spent covering certain “green” products, helpful to the environment • These products are made and sold by GE • GE owns NBC • A 1-week commercial – Corporate propaganda
  62. 62. The Environment – Keeping it Real • Pro-environment does not necessitate belief in the Global Warming doctrine • Sadly, today the Global Warming doctrine has taken over the environmental movement “Who’s the greenest of them all?”
  63. 63. Part Three Why?
  64. 64. A Paradigm Shift • “Do you believe in global warming? That is a religious question. Are you a believer…or a skeptic?” – MIT Meteorology Professor, Richard Lindzen • “‘Global warming’ has become the grand political narrative of the age, replacing Marxism as a dominant force for controlling liberty and human choices.” – Professor Philip Stott
  65. 65. Behind the Push • Why do the world’s most powerful people want you to feel that you are responsible for destroying the earth? • Why would anyone have us believe that the world is going to end unless we (Americans) ratify the Kyoto protocol? • Why are we being pushed so strongly to impose international solutions to stop the existential threat of human-caused global warming?
  66. 66. World Government • One world – the trend • One world – the motivation • A New World Order
  67. 67. Global Governance • “For the first time, humanity is instituting a genuine instrument of global governance, one that should find a place within the World Environmental Organization…(this is) the first component of an authentic global governance.” – Jacques Chirac, President of France 6th Conference for the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, 2000
  68. 68. A New World Order • These plans are not new or hidden • “In the next century, nationhood as we know it will be obsolete…all states will recognize a single, global authority.” – Strobe Talbott, Clinton State Dept. The Birth of the Global Nation, 1992
  69. 69. Bush, the Environmentalist?
  70. 70. One World – Why Not? • History shows that when power is consolidated, liberties are removed, and humanity suffers • Fascism – 6 million killed under Hitler • Marxism – 20 million killed under Stalin • Power corrupts • Revolutionary War and the constitution of the United States
  71. 71. • The solution: Weaken America • Falling dollar & the Fed • Open borders • Energy policy • Carbon taxes • Compromises in sovereignty – Public-Private Partnerships – The Amero and Mexamericanada • And the biggest lifeline? • Oil America, the Impediment
  72. 72. Oil = Your Life • Farms need oil to produce crops • Trucks need oil to bring food to your grocery store • Most plastics are made from oil • You get electricity largely from oil • You heat your home with oil • You cook your food with oil • You transport yourself to school, work, or home with oil • You dress yourself with oil • Oil controls the world
  73. 73. Carbon Emissions • CO2 emissions are produced from oil usage • If you control CO2 emissions, you control the world • Global Warming doctrine is critical for using oil as a means of controlling society • CO2 levels are increasing. But we are not allowed to question whether that proves a link between the use of oil and the predicted catastrophic warming of the earth
  74. 74. Global Warming as a Tool • We are being asked to relinquish our freedoms “for the greater good” • An innate sense of human guilt is being used against us to give power to a few and strip individuals of their basic rights • The Global Warming doctrine is tailor- made for this purpose
  75. 75. Summary/Conclusion • Global Warming doctrine is a powerful force in our world today, affecting every aspect of society • Techniques such as fear, bigotry, stifling opposition, and appealing to authority are being used to advance this doctrine • Because of its inextricable ties to oil, Global Warming doctrine is a tool for absolute control of the world by one body resulting in the loss of our freedoms
  76. 76. Thank You
  77. 77. Part Four: Epilogue So if not CO2, then what?
  78. 78. Solar Activity Theory • Scientists have proposed the following: • Sunspots go through cycles of activity and inactivity • Higher frequency (shorter) sunspot cycles create stronger solar energy output • This deflects cosmic rays and reduces cloud formation • This increases earth temperatures
  79. 79. Solar Activity Correlation
  80. 80. Why don’t we hear about this? • The sun cannot be controlled • It cannot be used to manipulate for power and money
