Global Warming: Was It Just
A Beautiful Dream After All?

Forbes, by Harry Binswanger

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 4/5/2013 7:12:52 AM

Like most of you, I yearn for shorter winters, more shirt-sleeve weather, less lashing from frigid winds. As a confirmed New Yorker, I’m not willing to do what millions have done: move to the sunbelt. I want warmer weather here in the Big City.But I’ve grown old waiting for the promised global warming. I was 35 when predictions of a looming ice age were supplanted by warmmongering. Now I’m 68, and there’s still no sign of warmer weather. It’s enough to make one doubt the “settled science” of the government-funded doom-sayers.

The only item that is ´settled´ is that taxes, fines, penalties, enhancements, revenues, investments, levies, surtaxes, surcharges, fees, assessments, tariffs, tolls, will all be raised by the trolls trolling for more and more, until 100% of all wages, earnings, and profits go directly to the Washington Leviathan, and ´each of us receive according to our need,´ a need determined no doubt by just how far we bow and prostrate ourselves to the mighty, ever-present colossus.

There was never anything beautiful about it. It was brought to us by money grabbing academics and socialist politicians. It was promoted by psychotic watermelons who treated the rest of the populace as if they were Holocost deniers and tried to browbeat us into submission. They will never let go of it, no matter what "science" says about it. If they are that concerned about what man is doing to the earth, then they should remove themselves from it.

A generation has been indoctrinated. This won´t go away easily.

Although... how quickly did we turn on eugenics and white wash the reputations and statements of people like Margaret Sanger once the reductio ad absurdum of applying darwin to humanity was revealed in the ovens of auschwitz?

but there´s still money in this, still a good feeling to being green, and there are still all those bureaucrats with regulatory ability.

What will the Weather Channel do now that Global Warming is finally exposed as a scam? They constantly refer to "Global Warming" as if it is legitimate.

It has always been about money and control by the eco-Leftists. Sadly, they will come up with another scam, most likely some plan involving re-education.

#12 Sanger is still with us in planned parenthood. (They really like that word "plan".)

I think the writer´s psychological conclusion at the end is right. I remember being in a bar a listening to 2 guys complain that the US really needs to do more about pollution- while they were smoking and drinking. I knew them so I suggested that their smoking and drinking was more harmful to them than US pollution.

Sadly it will be that much harder to address legitimate environmental concerns.

"It is now pretty clearly agreed that the C02 content will rise 25% by 2000. This could increase the average temperature near the earth´ s surface by 7 degrees Fahrenheit. This in turn could raise the level of the sea by 10 feet. Goodbye New York.
Goodbye Washington, for that matter. We have no data on Seattle."

Bravo. Good questions from Binswanger and Forbes. Here´s a brilliant quote on the simple reality of the NUTRIENT CO2, from longtime inventor scientist author friend,
Alvin Lowi: "Contrary to the fashionable environmental hogwash, CO2 is not a harmful emission. It is a natural constituent of the
atmosphere without which all plants would die and animals soon afterward. CO2 is an aerial fertilizer, more of which makes plants healthier, grow faster and more fruitful. It makes plants more tolerant to drought, water and air pollution. To the extent CO2 increases the earth´s greenhouse effect, whatever warming produced, if any, will be beneficial to all living things, polar bears included. This world could use more CO2, not less. Browse http://www.co2science.org/ for further enlightenment."
Alvin Lowi, aerospace engineer, designer of fuel efficient engines, inventor, is a true "greenie", he’s The Real non government McCoy. Consider keeping this quote with your ID and credit cards.

I predict that the next new global wrecking, Gaia destroying, man-caused scare is the inevitable flipping of the magnetic poles driving the need for a magneto-tax. Heavy industrialization and rise of digital electronics will be to blame. All electricity generation will be heavily affected by this tax. The doomsayers will not be happy until the entire world is rid of the evil virus that is humanity (themselves excluded of course).

The real "Global Bologna" started about the time the USSR collapsed. It is my observation that the world of human always has worked best in a state of tension, not compression. Wehn people have something real to threatene their life habits, they work together, but, when they live in long periods of peace and prosperity, they turn inward, become selfish, corporatism takes over and chaos of social structure usually ensues. So, no bit bad USSR, the governments realized they needed something- but, with so many other governments possessing nuclear weapons, finding tension between governments was not a good thing- small, controllable wars were okay- but, what the world really needed was something Big, mean, and very threatening- "How about a global threat?" so, in the Clintoon era, the perfect replacement for the Red Communists was the Green Communists- "Save the Planet", replaced "Workers Unite!" as the great call to revolution! It almost worke! But, like the real Communists, their lies caught up with them and they ran out of other people´s money! Now, people are getting wise, and are aware of the Green charlatans the Green movement is so full of.

This argument has been changed from time to time to mask the truth as it comes out. The latest argument is that warming is caused by human activity.

We can expect nature to vary the average temperature of the earth. Liberals couldn´t argue this given that there was evidence of a medieval warming period. So the changed the argument to AGW. That is humans were causing the warming through CO2 emissions.

But even Al Gore´s movie shows the truth if you look close enough. While speaking on stage, he projects a graph on a very large and wide screen of temperature and CO2. It was meant to show the correlation of the two. But his graph showed temperature changing first followed by CO2. In fact, there was something like a 700 year lag in CO2 change after a temperature change. But people saw what they wanted to see.

There is a most excellent and scientific program on this topic on Youtube. Go to YouTube and search for "the great global warming swindle". The left has been trying to debunk this program for years.

The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
