Environmental Advocates Use Racism to Dismiss Global Warming Skeptics

THE INTERCEPT
Aug 7, 2011

Reduced to desperate measures, proponents of anthropogenic global warming (AGW) have resorted to formally identifying those who are skeptical of the global warming science as conservative white males.

One inherent shortfall of the study is that it inadvertently celebrates the intelligence of conservative white males and denigrates every other race, gender and political background (including my own).

Recently, mainstream media began the slow, tacit admission that global warming hasn’t manifested in the way it was so definitively predicted 10 years ago.   This admission was presented last month through a recent study suggesting that Çhina’s sulfur emissions were to blame for the lack of global warming.   Blaming China wasn’t enough, so scientists scrambled to present the following two additional excuses for the foiled predictions of the past 10 years:

Volcanoes Now Blamed for Lack of Global Warming

Aerosols Blamed for Lack of Global Warming

Ironically, the aerosols article also blames the burning of fossil fuels for offsetting the effect of global warming.  Fossil fuels were initially blamed for global warming.

To understand how a group pushing human induced climate change could be reduced to conducting such a bizarre survey involving the socio-economic class of those who question the science of AGW, one has to look at the way they handle adverse information.

On a local level, anyone can make this discovery for themselves.  For example, If you have a group of environmentalists in your area that refer to global warming as one of the reasons for great ideas like localization, cleaning up the eco-sphere or reducing automobile exhaust, introduce some of the contradictory information involving climate change and see how they react to you. Pay close attention to the way they try to dismiss you or shape the argument away from what you present in support of recent conventional climate research. See if they actually answer your questions or address the specific points you present. Turning over this rock may involve an ugly discovery underneath.

An article describing this study indicates a comparison between conservative white males and the rest of the population.  Race, gender and political affiliation aside, the survey comes up with 39% “denying there’s a scientific consensus”.  White male conservatives boast a portion that is as high as 59%.  Not only does the scientific consensus of global warming have nothing to do with the science of global warming, the AGW movement is notorious for suppressing skeptical scientists.   The question should be, “Who is aware of the skeptical scientists being suppressed?”

The AGW climate scientists’ tendency to suppress alternate views was revealed earlier through the hacked emails of the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU).  Suppression was one red flag in addition to suggestions for “hiding the decline” of global temperatures and refusing requests to see the original data.

Since this incident occurred in November of 2009, East Anglia’s CRU hired a PR firm to help with their public image after the email scandal.  This is an unusual move by a research department because the science is expected to hold up to public scrutiny on its own.

In what is commonly called the “third party technique” among PR professionals, panels were put together on three occasions to examine the hacked emails.  The idea was to reassure the public that the inquiry was indeed independent and trustworthy.  All three “blue ribbon panels” exonerated East Anglia’s CRU by downplaying the erroneous activity and declaring that none of the relevant data was affected.   Unfortunately for East Anglia, it appears that their PR department had a hand in this process.

Common sense would have the AGW movement take its blows, distance itself from the scientists involved with East Anglia, and allow newer cleaner research to emerge.  Instead, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change seemed hell bent on protecting the research called into question with the hacked emails.

For some reason, the AGW movement thought that the best tactics were to further corrupt the peer review process, ‘conspiracy bait’ those who question the severity of CO2′s warming effects and chime together with the mantra of “scientific consensus”.   In the short run, this strategy seemed to work, especially when the establishment joins in with the motivation of another market bubble – carbon derivative scams.  Banks love human-driven climate change.  Anthropogenic global warming enjoys the privilege of mainstream acceptance.   When contradictory information slips by, the story is typically interspersed with statements reaffirming “the reality of anthropogenic global warming”.  Sometimes, the information is revealed in such a vague manner, one begins to wonder what the initial purpose of the story was supposed to be.

But the recent avalanche of contradictory information and discrediting scandals seem to be overwhelming the self aggrandizing orthodoxy that is AGW.

As stated earlier, the scramble to find a culprit to blame for the lack of a significant warming trend appears desperate.   Blame China, blame volcanoes, blame aerosols, blame fossil fuels.  Worse, it appears that the AGW movement overstepped the bounds of good PR by becoming directly involved with censorship at the BBC.

In addition, Outside Organization, the PR firm hired by East Anglia’s CRU is directly involved with Ruppert Murdoch’s email hacking scandal, which involved the arrest of Outside Organization’s managing director, Neil Wallis.

Some of the effects of the PR have real consequences.  Recently, the Interior Department was hoodwinked into listing polar bears under the U.S. Endangered Species Act.  This was the direct result of studies and observations by a wildlife biologist named Charles Monnett, who has been placed on administrative leave and is currently being investigated for scientific misconduct, possibly over the veracity of claims of drowning polar bears.

Contradictory information seems to be appearing more frequently and are less likely to fit the description of “propaganda from shills for the oil industry”.  Here are a few recent examples:

Scientists Gagged From Interpreting Study That Links Climate Change To Cosmic Rays

Blockbuster: Planetary temperature controls CO2 levels — not humans

New paper: Urban Heat Island effect accounts for 56% of warming in urban areas over past 55 years

Climate change study had ‘significant error’: experts (Update)

NASA Study Acknowledges Solar Cycle, Not Man, Responsible for Past Warming

UN Embarrassed by Forecast on Climate Refugees

Rural Temperatures Around Washington DC In Steep Decline

Arctic ‘tipping point’ may not be reached

The tendency of the AGW crowd is to dismiss these articles (sources included) as propaganda on behalf of the “status quo” or the “oil industry”.  Apparently, they are also making the assumption that only white male conservatives take these articles seriously.

Why the refusal to address public scrutiny or encourage peer review of contradictory studies?  How could the level of willful ignorance within the AGW crowd be reduced to using racism in an attempt to discredit those who question the science?

It seems to be about a race of another kind.  The disdain for scientific discourse seems to be about a race to implement policies to reduce CO2 emissions.   Remember how we keep hearing the absurd statement that the “debate is over” on anthropogenic global warming?  Scientists confident in their work should always welcome scrutiny but, in this case, chastise those for refusing to hang their hat on AGW conclusions regardless of the contradictory data.

While the AGW crowd has acknowledged to some extent the difference between actual temperatures in the last 10 years and those temperatures predicted 10 years ago, there is still this McCarthy-esque ridicule for those who question the validity of anthropogenic global warming.  Why?

Perhaps they know that the earth is cooling and they realize that they had better implement their proposed CO2 curbing policies if they are to make any claim of saving the earth.

How does CO2 influence climate change? What level is influenced by human activity?

Wouldn’t we like to know. Unfortunately, not much will come from a bunch of folks beating their chests and definitively assuring us that AGW is not something that needs to be questioned.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
