FLASHBACK: In 2004, The U.S. Senate Was Warned That Climate Change is a Hoax

Published

on

The “Global Climate Strike” mobilized 4 million protestors  around September 20.   When former President Barack Obama met with 16-year-old Swedish “climate activist” Greta Thunberg, it made the entire issue look more like political theater than science.

The ‘climate strike’ protestors are pressuring international government meetings to take more drastic action.  Others observe from polling that the hard sell of the climate change hoax may be a red flag turning some people off.

However, there is a fatal flaw in the climate change alarmism.  Actually there are many fatal flaws.  But there is one that anyone can understand.  It cannot be cured by the alarmists.

We actually do not know how much carbon dioxide was in Earth’s atmosphere prior to the 1930s.  Devices to reliably measure carbon dioxide in the air went through painstaking, slow, bumpy development.  Instruments did not really come into their own until around 1930.

Because we don’t know the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere, climate change proponents depend upon unreliable “proxies.”  They substitute gas pockets retrieved from ice core samples from deep within ancient glaciers.  They hope this will tell us Earth’s ancient atmosphere and the concentration of CO2 in the air.

Speculation that air pockets remain exactly the same over hundreds to millions of years has never been tested.  And what is the margin of error of an ice core sample?

Arguing that A causes B requires measurements with a known margin of error.  We can’t model a phenomenon in inches if the data was measured in miles.  Proxy measurements from ice core air samples cannot prove global warming caused by carbon dioxide.  The margins of error are too wide and highly unpredictable.

In 2004 the U.S. Senate was fully briefed on the falsehood of man-made global warming.   The U.S. Government clearly knows that we cannot measure carbon dioxide earlier than 1900 to 1930.

Prof. Zbigniew Jaworowski testified before the U.S. Senate on March 13, 2004:

Improper manipulation of data, and arbitrary rejection of readings that do not fit the pre-conceived idea on man-made global warming is common in many glaciological studies of greenhouse gases. In peer reviewed publications I exposed this misuse of science.

The basis of most of the IPCC conclusions on anthropogenic causes and on projections of climatic change is the assumption of low level of CO2 in the pre-industrial atmosphere. This assumption, based on glaciological studies, is false. Therefore IPCC projections should not be used for national and global economic planning.

on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, March 19, 2004

Prof. Zbigniew Jaworowski explained his qualifications to the Senate:

For the past 40 years I was involved in glacier studies, using snow and ice as a matrix for reconstruction of history of man-made pollution of the global atmosphere. A part of these studies was related to the climatic issues.

Ice core records of CO2 have been widely used as a proof that, due to man’s activity the current atmospheric level of CO2 is about 25% higher than in the pre-industrial period. These records became the basic input parameters in the models of the global carbon cycle and a cornerstone of the man-made climatic warming hypothesis.

These records do not represent the atmospheric reality, as I will try to demonstrate in my statement.

In order to study the history of industrial pollution of the global atmosphere, between 1972 and 1980, I organized 11 glacier expeditions, which measured natural and man-made pollutants in contemporary and ancient precipitation, preserved in 17 glaciers in Arctic, Antarctic, Alaska, Norway, the Alps, the Himalayas, the Ruwenzori Mountains in Uganda, the Peruvian Andes and in Tatra Mountains in Poland.

In the 1990s I was working in the Norwegian Polar Research Institute in Oslo, and in the Japanese National Institute of Polar Research in Tokyo. In this period I studied the effects of climatic change on polar regions, and the reliability of glacier studies for estimation of CO2 concentration in the ancient atmosphere.

            Prof. Jaworowski explained why chemistry, including intense pressure under the weight of layers of glacial ice, change the air sample from its original composition:

More than 20 physico-chemical processes, mostly related to the presence of liquid water, contribute to the alteration of the original chemical composition of the air inclusions in polar ice.

One of these processes is formation of gas hydrates or clathrates. In the highly compressed deep ice all air bubbles disappear, as under the influence of pressure the gases change into the solid clathrates, which are tiny crystals formed by interaction of gas with water molecules. Drilling decompresses cores excavated from deep ice, and contaminates them with the drilling fluid filling the borehole.

* * *  After decompression of the ice cores, the solid clathrates decompose into a gas form, exploding in the process as if they were microscopic grenades. In the bubble-free ice the explosions form a new gas cavities and new cracks. Through these cracks, and cracks formed by sheeting, a part of gas escapes first into the drilling liquid which fills the borehole, and then at the surface to the atmospheric air.

* * * This leads to depletion of CO2 in the gas trapped in the ice sheets. This is why the records of CO2 concentration in the gas inclusions from deep polar ice show the values lower than in the contemporary atmosphere, even for the epochs when the global surface temperature was higher than now.

Id.

Similarly, the ice is “contaminated” with algae and microbes.  “Bacteria form in the ice releasing gases even in 500,000-year-old ice at great depth. Brent C. Christner, “Detection, Recovery, Isolation and Characterization  of Bacteria in Glacial Ice and Lake Vostok Accretion Ice,” Dissertation. Ohio State University, 2002.

To use ice core samples as a measurement for Earth’s ancient atmosphere, we would have to to measure a known sample within ice layers, wait a million years, and then come back a million years later and re-test the air pocket.  It is unlikely that the gas sample will remained unchanged.  That would be the kind of real science that the protesting students could have learned had they stayed in school.

As one scientist put it:   “The hypothesis that global warming and climate change are due to human addition of carbon dioxide (CO2) to the atmosphere became fact before research had even begun.”  (Emphasis in the original.)  Dr Timothy Ball, Measurement of Pre-Industrial CO2 Levels, Friends of Science, November 2008.

President Trump Must Consider Annihilating the GOP to Reverse Electoral Impropriety

Published

on

While vote fraud whistleblowers are putting their freedom and their reputations on the line to expose an unprecedented assault on American democracy, the GOP leadership class is getting ready to capitulate.

Republican leaders at the state level, who could reject the fraudulent official election results and choose pro-Trump electors under lawful authority granted to them under the 12th Amendment of the Constitution, are instead announcing declarations of fealty. Lawmakers in contested states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Arizona have pledged total and complete compliance with the rigging of this election, announcing to their enemies publicly that they lack the backbone to overturn their historic vote steal.

“I don’t see us in any serious way addressing a change in electors,” said Rusty Bowers, Arizona’s Republican House speaker, announcing that he is effectively spitting in the faces of constituents begging him to use his constitutionally-valid powers to stop the steal. “They are mandated by statute to choose according to the vote of the people.”

“The Pennsylvania General Assembly does not have and will not have a hand in choosing the state’s presidential electors or in deciding the outcome of the presidential election,” leading Republican legislative leaders, state Sen. Jake Corman and Rep. Kerry Benninghoff, wrote before the election. They remain steadfast in their unwillingness to act even after Democrats have made a mockery of the electoral process in their state.

Republican legislative leaders in Michigan have pledged total fealty even as terror campaigns are launched against Republican officials in Wayne County for lawmakers who refuse to certify a dubious vote. They also applauded the Michigan state board of canvassers for certifying earlier this week, after whistleblowers attested to the grotesque fraud that occurred in Detroit and throughout the state, calling the immense betrayal “America at work.”

“Speaker Chatfield’s position on this has been clear from the beginning — the candidate who receives the most votes will receive Michigan’s electoral votes,” said Gideon D’Assandro, a spokesman for Michigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield. Meanwhile, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey is throwing cold water on investigations about inner-city vote-rigging, saying that “it is not the expectation that our analysis will result in any change in the outcome.”

Chatfield and Shirkey are at the mercy of a deranged state attorney general in Dana Nessel, who threatened the lawmakers with criminal prosecution for merely accepting a meeting with President Donald Trump. The lawmakers are in a position where they won’t just receive threats and hatred from mobs of deranged left-wing extremists empowered by monolithic Big Tech platforms. They will also potentially be criminally prosecuted, based on the conspiracy theories of a histrionic LGBT activist on a power trip, for performing their duties under the Constitution.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is already making deals to get his establishment cronies into the administration of his old chamber buddy, president-elect Joe Biden. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) pushed for the Biden team to begin receiving intelligence briefs, believing that it is good for the country to go along with the media’s charade. Trump eventually capitulated after a successful left-wing terror campaign against the GSA chief.

The president does have one final trump card that he can use to enforce compliance and prevent cowardly Republican leaders from submitting: the total annihilation of the GOP.

Republican establishment figures like House Minority Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) have the audacity to point to 2020 being a break-out election for Republicans with underprivileged groups as if the party is viable with or without Trump as its figurehead. They ignore that it was Trump’s unconventional approach – shattering the conventional wisdom of every pollster, consultant, and prognosticator in the business – that brought the minorities on board.

It was President Trump’s authenticity, his unabashed defense of American greatness, and projection of strength against a bankrupt political class that opened the GOP tent to groups typically dominated by Democrats. It wasn’t politically correct pandering, parading around a handful of corporate-funded tokens, or inclusive talking points that led to this sea change. As soon as the Trump era is shuttered, the GOP establishment will revert back to the recipe of failure faster than you can say: “2024 presidential nominee Nimrata Randhawa.”

President Trump must play hardball to defend his legacy, which is now inextricably tied with the fate of America. He must make it clear to Republican leaders that if this steal is not overturned, then the Republican Party goes down with him. The prospect of a viable independent “America First” political party led by Trump and bolstered by his loyalists in the GOP would make the likes of McCarthy and McConnell fall in line rather quickly. Republican leaders are feeling pressure from the other side, and now the Silent Majority must flex its muscle to keep them from faltering.

Millions of Trump supporters being whipped into a frenzy demanding that their Republican lawmakers show fealty to this new collective would effectively destroy the GOP. It may help the Democrats temporarily, but the short-term losses would be worth it to end Republican cowardice forever. The master maneuverer in the White House has the political capital to pull off such a gambit, and right now, he has nothing to lose. It’s time to bring the Republican establishment to heel, once and for all, by going nuclear on its leaders.
