Scene One: Bali, Indonesia. Ten thousand representatives from 180 nations gather under the warm rays of the sun and bask in temperatures in the mid-80s on an all-expenses paid, two week sojourn in this tropical paradise to discuss global warming which the sponsoring U.N. warns is barbecuing the earth.
Scene Two: Kansas, Mo., and much of the Central Plains are staggering under an ice storm that has killed more the 20 people, shut off electric power to 533,000 customers in several states in the Central Plains leaving them shivering in the bitter cold, downing ice-laden trees, turning highways into skating rinks, and creating an emergency that could last as long as 10 days.
If we accept the assertions of Al Gore and the hundreds of scientists now enjoying the balmy breezes in Bali, the arctic regions are warming, ice and snow packs are melting and it's only a matter of time before winter as we know it will be a thing of the past and the world will look like .. . Well . . . Bali, just where is all that frigid air deep freezing the Central Plains coming from?
If the northern climes are heating up, just where does the frigid air causing the current ice storms originate? Is it really all that warm up there? And if it is, don't try to tell that to the folks in Ekati, Canada where the temperature last night was 33 degrees below zero or Lutsel where the thermometer dropped to 34 degrees below zero. It's from such places that the ice storms come from.
These are the kind of inconvenient truths that keep popping up in the path of the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) now meeting at the Bali conference to discuss what they say is their main goal "to launch negotiations on a climate change, deal for the post-2012 period, to set the agenda for these negotiations and to reach agreement on when these negotiations will have to be concluded."
Not everybody now in Bali agrees with the IPCC on the subject of alleged global warming. According to Marc Morano a top aide to Sen. James Inhofe a kind of truth squad composed of some of the world's most acclaimed experts on climate has shown up to dispute with undeniable facts the U.N. panel's claims.
Their presence among a profession that allegedly encourages vigorous debate among its practitioners was anything but welcome.
Said Lord Christopher Monckton, a top British climate researcher, "U.N. organizers refused my credentials and appeared desperate that I should not come to this conference. They have also made several attempts to interfere with our public meetings."
No wonder. Instead of toeing the line set by the global warming Mafia , Monckton asserted "Climate change is a non problem. The right answer to a non problem is to have the courage to do nothing."
"The UN conference is a complete waste of our time and your money and we should no longer pay the slightest attention to the IPCC," Monckton told participants.
"It is a circus here," said Australian scientist Dr. David Evans who is making scientific presentations to delegates and journalists at the conference revealing the latest peer-reviewed studies that refute the U.N.'s climate claims.
"This is the most lavish conference I have ever been to, but I am only a scientist and I actually only go to the science conferences," Evans said, noting the sheer luxury of the tropical resort.
Evans, a mathematician who did carbon accounting for the Australian government, recently converted to a skeptical scientist about manmade global warming after reviewing the new scientific studies.
"We now have quite a lot of evidence that carbon emissions definitely don't cause global warming. We have the missing [human] signature [in the atmosphere], we have the IPCC models being wrong and we have the lack of a temperature going up the last five years," Evans said in an interview with the [U.S. Senator James] Inhofe EPW Press Blog. Evans authored a Nov. 28, 2007 paper "Carbon Emissions Don't Cause Global Warming."
According to the Inhofe blog, Evans touted a new peer-reviewed study by a team of scientists appearing in the December 2007 issue of the International Journal of Climatology of the Royal Meteorological Society which found "Warming is naturally caused and shows no human influence."
Evans put his finger on the reason why so many scientists are promoting the global warming scam: There are big bucks in it. "Most of the people here have jobs that are very well paid and they depend on the idea that carbon emissions cause global warming. They are not going to be very receptive to the idea that well actually the science has gone off in a different direction," Evans explained.
Evans, who believes the U.N. has politicized science heavily, warned there is going to be a "dangerous time for science" ahead.
"We have a split here. Official science driven by politics, money and power, goes in one direction. Unofficial science, which is more determined by what is actually happening with the [climate] data, has now started to move off in a different direction" away from fears of a man-made climate crisis, Evans explained.
"The two are splitting. This is always a dangerous time for science and a dangerous time for politics. Historically science always wins these battles but there can be a lot of causalities and a lot of time in between," he concluded.
Added U.N. IPCC reviewer and climate researcher Dr. Vincent Gray of New Zealand, an expert reviewer on every single draft of the IPCC reports since its inception going back to 1990, "There is no evidence that carbon dioxide increases are having any affect whatsoever on the climate," Gray, who shares in the Nobel Prize awarded to the U.N. IPCC, explained.
"All the science of the IPCC is unsound. I have come to this conclusion after a very long time. If you examine every single proposition of the IPCC thoroughly, you find that the science somewhere fails," Gray, who wrote the book "The Greenhouse Delusion: A Critique of "Climate Change 2001," said.
"It fails not only from the data, but it fails in the statistics, and the mathematics."
Among other dissidents: New Zealander Bryan Leland of the International Climate Science Coalition warned participants that all the U.N. promoted discussions of "carbon trading" should be viewed with suspicion.
"I am an energy engineer and I know something about electricity trading and I know enough about carbon trading and the inaccuracies of carbon trading to know that carbon trading is more about fraud than it is about anything else," Leland said.
"We should probably ask why we have 10,000 people here [in Bali] in a futile attempt to ‘solve' a [climate] problem that probably does not exist," Leland added. Owen McShane, the head of the International Climate Science Coalition, also worried that a U.N. promoted global approach to economics would mean financial ruin for many nations.
"I don't think this conference can actually achieve anything because it seems to be saying that we are going to draw up one protocol for every country in the world to follow," McShane said.
"Now these countries and these economies are so diverse that trying to presume you can put all of these feet into one shoe will simply not work," McShane explained.
"Having the same set of rules apply to everybody will blow some economies apart totally while others will be unscathed and I wouldn't be surprised if the ones who remain unscathed are the ones who write the rules," he added. Professor Dr. William Alexander, emeritus of the University of Pretoria in South Africa and a former member of the United Nations Scientific and Technical Committee on Natural Disasters, warned poor nations and their residents that the U.N. policies could mean more poverty and thus more death.
"My message is specifically for the poor people of Africa. And there is nothing happening at this conference that can help them one little bit but there is the potential that they could be damaged," Alexander said. (LINK)
"The government and people of Africa will have their attention drawn to reducing climate change instead of reducing poverty," Alexander added.
Ignoring the truth, that if anything the world is teetering on the brink of a new Ice Age, is nothing short of criminal, If Gore and his UN buddies get their way, the very resources the world needs to keep warm - oil, coal, etc will be kept out of the hands of the people by UN regulations.
As the evidence mounts up, it is becoming clear that the IPCC is more of a criminal enterprise smuggling the snake oil of phony science to the public than a legitimate scientific body, and Al Gore is the group's godfather.
