Yes, It's a Religion! April 25, 2015 8:00 AM | Tagged as Curry, IPCC, Lamar Smith
WSJ April 24, 2015, Page A11: “The Climate-Change Religion”, by Lamar Smith, (TX-R), Chair of the US House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.
Rep. Smith listens to both sides of the climate debate, (as if there actually has been one). Here’s a summary of his points from this op-ed:
1. Former UN top climate scientist, Rajendra Pachauri, proclaims in his farewell letter, after resigning amid scandal earlier this year, “It is my religion and my dharma.” Dharma is roughly translated into English as “doctrine”.
2. Christiana Figueres, UN’s leader for the upcoming climate-change treaty negotiations in Paris, admits, the real goal is” to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years.” That model she wants to put on the ash heap of history is called capitalism. She is advocating socialist redistribution of wealth!
3. Climate Scientist Judith Curry testified that Obama’s pledged US reduction in green-house gases will prevent only a 0.03 degree Celsius increase in global temperatures.
4. Obama’s Clean Power Plan would reduce a sea-level increase by less than half the thickness of a dime.
5. The UN itself says there is “high agreement” among experts that recent weather disasters are NOT from human-caused climate change.
6. There has been no increase in global warming over the past 15 years.
7. Referring to the UN's IPCC 2010 report, The Inter-Academy Council, a multinational scientific organization, has identified “significant shortcomings in each major step of (the UN) assessment process.”
8. The UN IPCC process is not science. It is focused on producing alarmism. The IPCC summary report is written before the scientists have their data analyzed and it is written by biased policy wonks, not scientists.
9. Those who disagree with their religion are shamed, attacked, have their reputation savaged, and livelihoods threatened. [Note from The Biz Bucks Guy: Rep. Grijalva (AZ-D) has even used his Congressional powers to do a witch hunt on anyone suggesting an opposing view.]
10. Senior Obama administration officials are unwilling to admit they are wrong.
The big question remaining is: What unites the various factions in the climate-alarmism industry to keep feeding us this baloney?
