Climate Change

Initiation of the Climate Change Narrative from the originator’s perspective

Maurice Strong was credited for organizing the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, which led to what is now called the IPCC, The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Maurice, a Canadian who ran away from home at 14, got his first exposure to the UN in 1947 at the age of 18 as an assistant pass officer in the Identification Unit of the Security Section. Living at the time with the Treasurer of the UN, he first met David Rockefeller and learned that the UN’s funds were handled by Rockefeller’s Chase Bank.

He became an investment analyst at 19,  and VP of Dome Petroleum at 25. After being taken into the fold of Pierre Trudeau, he became president of Power Corporation at 31, and ran the corporation at the age of 35.       

             Maurice was a lifelong socialist who saw the potential of using an environmental movement to fight capitalism and introduce a system of “global governance” that would coordinate all human activity.

IPCC compartmentalizing between the “data” and the “mitigation”

               The IPCC is broken down into 3 Working Groups. “The IPCC Working Group I (WGI) examines the physical science underpinning past, present, and future climate change.” The WGI in other words, controls the data going into the whole process.

             “Working Group II Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability”

             “Working Group III Mitigation of Climate Change”

             It is not within the framework of WGII or WGIII to in any way evaluate the data provided to them. They are simply tasked with, given the data, what can be done to adapt and mitigate the impact that the data forecasts.

Temperature Measurement accuracy on a global basis

           To assign a temperature to the planet at any given time within any minute degree of accuracy is relatively impossible. Even NASA states that when measuring Surface Air Temperature (SAT), “there is no universally accepted correct answer.”

             If instead, we start to look higher up into the atmosphere for temperature readings, an estimate of the temperature variation from sea level to the top of Mt. Everest would be more than 40 degrees.

             And below is a map showing the location of the world’s weather stations as well as where there are no weather station readings as well.

             According to data from “a total of fifteen instruments flying on different satellites” over the years, March 2019 increase in temperature was reported to be up .34 Deg. C. If you go to the NASA/ Goddard Institute website, the current increase is .8 Deg C. Although they say this represents the “global surface temperature”, the actual graph says the data represents “GLOBAL LAND-OCEAN TEMPERATURE INDEX”.

             I reference the statement above, Even NASA states that when measuring Surface Air Temperature (SAT), “there is no universally accepted correct answer.”

Manipulation of data

           As the data that is generated to create the forecasting models is at the heart of any concerns about accuracy, below are two versions of the same data from NASA between 1999 and 2016.


Inaccurate Forecasting and predictions

           Forecasting the climate over the last many decades has been a popular topic within the media. Many articles in the sixties and seventies predicted a mini-ice age. The beginning of the Global Warming predictions started June 23rd, 1988 officially when James Hansen told Congress that Global Warming was not approaching, it was here.

             James Hansen’s testimony was sponsored by Senator Timothy Wirth, a democratic senator who later went on to work with Al Gore in supporting the Kyoto Protocol. Wirth announced the U.S.’s commitment to legally binding limits on greenhouse gas emissions.

             In 2008, Hansen predicted, echoing other scientists that the Arctic would be free of ice in the summer within 5 to 10 years. Below is a graph of the Arctic Sea Ice during the last 4 years on a monthly basis. There is still ice in the Arctic in the summer months.

How much money do “They” hope to get from a carbon tax?

In 2016, More than $28.3 billion in government “carbon revenues” were collected each year in 40 countries and another 16 states or provinces around the world.

             In 2017, the US pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord.
