Mark Sheppard’s latest article, UN Climate Reports: They Lie, debunks — yet again — the whole lie behind the infamous “Hockey Stick graph” which conveniently ignores the Medieval Warm Period and the Little Ice Age.
The publicâ€™s belief in manmade climate change doesnâ€™t hang on its grasp of geophysics or thermodynamics. Technical explanations of positive feedbacks and radiative forcings, read by few and understand by fewer still, arenâ€™t likely to foster acceptance of a new energy tax that will dramatically raise the price of literally every facet of human life. Letâ€™s get real — even experts on the subject canâ€™t seem to agree on what caused modern warming.
But alarmists know all too well that as long as citizens are convinced that warming is both enduring and unprecedented, such inconveniences as the missing hot spot, laughably mistaken climate models, 800 year CO2 /Temperature latency and perhaps even current cooling can be cleverly obfuscated with Goebbels-like double-talk and outright lies.
And without the Hockey Stickâ€™s counterfeit portrait of runaway 20th century warming, climate crisis peddlersâ€™ credibility levels are reduced to those of used car salesmen. Not where you want to be when hoping to sell the instinctively absurd premise that the actions of mankind can influence temperatures in either direction.
So they cheat. And they lie. And they have from the very beginning.
In 1989, climate scientist Stephen Schneider told Discover magazine:
â€œTo capture the public imagination, we have to offer up some scary scenarios, make simplified dramatic statements and little mention of any doubts one might have. Each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective, and being honest.â€
Twelve years later, Schneider was a lead author of the IPCCâ€™s TAR, the same UN report that formally introduced the delusory Hockey Stick Graph.
