Every day there is new evidence of the success of the original and largest of the Fake News – Deep State stories. This is the claim that human-produced carbon dioxide (CO2) is causing dangerous global warming, also referred to as ‘anthropogenic global warming’ (AGW).
The latest evidence of the success of this deception is the disagreement between President Emmanuel Macron of France and President Donald Trump over the Paris Agreement on climate change.
It is a deception deliberately set up to fool most of the people most of the time. But there is no empirical scientific evidence to support it. The evidence used to fool the world is merely the predictions of computer models of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). They have overestimated on every temperature projection made since their inception in 1990.
With over one billion US dollars being spent every day worldwide on ‘climate finance,’ the global warming scare is unquestionably the greatest deception in history. It is also the most effective because it uses false science. This eliminates potential understanding on the part of at least 80 percent of the population since they don’t understand correct science and therefore cannot identify deliberately corrupted science. The IPCC science goes unquestioned by a majority of the science community as well because, lacking a familiarity with this particular discipline, they trust the official experts and assume scientists would not pervert science for a political agenda. This is why it is so telling when a few scientists actually examine what the IPCC is doing. German physicist and meteorologist Klaus Eckart Puls (English translation version) explains what he experienced:
“Ten years ago, I simply parroted what the IPCC told us. One day I started checking the facts and data – first I started with a sense of doubt but then I became outraged when I discovered that much of what the IPCC and the media were telling us was sheer nonsense and was not even supported by any scientific facts and measurements. To this day I still feel shame that as a scientist I made presentations of their science without first checking it…Scientifically it is sheer absurdity to think we can get a nice climate by turning a CO2 adjustment knob.”
Macron and any other leaders should not feel ashamed that they were deceived. They want to do what is right for the people and the planet but lack the expertise to properly evaluate what they are being told by the denizens of the deep state, the bureaucrats.
Led by the machinations of Canadian businessman and former United Nations Under-Secretary-General, the late Maurice Strong, members of the Club of Rome enabled the objective of global governance through the bureaucrats. As American author Mary McCarthy warned years ago; “Bureaucracy, the rule of no one, has become the modern form of despotism.”
Elaine Dewar author Cloak of Green, spent five days with Strong at the UN and concluded,
“He could raise his own money from whomever he liked, appoint anyone he wanted, control the agenda…Strong was using the U.N. as a platform to sell a global environment crisis and the Global Governance Agenda.”
Strong set up the IPCC through the UN agency, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). This agency is comprised of bureaucrats from weather offices of UN member nations. Strong knew that if he controlled the bureaucrats, he controlled the agenda and the politicians. Very few politicians are able to, or have the time to investigate what the bureaucrats are telling them. And once the bureaucrat convinces the politician of a position, the bureaucrat is unlikely to admit that what they said was wrong.
A couple of world leaders did challenge them, however. Economist and former President of the Czech Republic, Vaclav Klaus summarized his findings in his book, “Blue Planet in Green Shackles.” The subtitle says it all, “What is Endangered: Climate or Freedom.”
The other leader is Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India. An investigative panel advised him that the cost of dealing with alleged CO2-caused global warming far outweighed the benefits. He seized the moral high ground from AGW advocates by asserting that the supposed benefits of CO2 reduction do not offset the fact that millions of Indians are starving and are without electricity. To generate that electricity will require more coal-fired power generation, a major source of CO2 emissions.
Bureaucrats are the Trojan horse of any government: they are the enemy within. The challenge for Trump, and eventually Macron when he confronts them over other issues, is how do you hold them accountable? Few leaders have succeeded.
