Apollo Astronaut: Climate Alarmism
Is the ‘Biggest Fraud in the Field
of Science

Cybercast News Service, by Craig Bannister

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/3/2014 10:15:03 PM

Climate alarmism is "the biggest fraud in the field of science" and the 97% consensus claim is nonsensical, Apollo 7 astronaut Walter Cunningham tells MRCTV in a preview of his presentation at the upcoming Heartland Institute climate conference, July 7-9. "Since about 2000, I looked farther and farther into it," Col. Cunningham (USMC, Ret.) tells MRCTV in an exclusive interview. "I found that not one of the claims that the alarmists were making out there had any bearings, whatsoever. And, so, it was kind of a no-brainer to come to the conclusion." Cunningham rejects the notion of man-made climate, not

Comments:
Of course it is! It´s all about corruption, power, control and bleeding more money out of the peons that the radical zealots despise.

Walter Cunningham is a very clear thinker and speaker. He is a physicist as well as a former U.S. Marine colonel.

There is a group of 50 leading NASA astronauts, scientists, engineers, and technical managers, some very famous, who have written to expose the fraud. They may not be climate scientists, but they are extraordinary intellects and critical thinkers who have studied the evidence and who know a scam when they see it.

Every time I see a Globaloney article I comment - it´s the biggest fraud in human history. Bigger than Social Security, bigger than the Income Tax, bigger than anything Marx or Lenin or FDR cooked up. Thank you Walter Cunningham.

Not every member of the astronaut corps is as clear-headed (looking at you here, Ed Mitchell -- your Ph.D. in physics notwithstanding).

But Walt, despite a verbal tendency to shoot from the hip, is as sharp and tough and honest as they come.

Even if you´re interested in the science it´s obvious that 90% of the climate change "debate" is sleazy politicians promising to change the weather if the right people make enough money.

The other 10% is the same sleazy politicians calling anyone who dares disagree with "stupid".

He´s a willing spokesman for The Apollo Hoax, an alleged Lunar Module Pilot on a mission even NASA admits had no lunar module. His real job was managing the chemtrail tanks so the prevailing winds would spread AIDS to Africa. If you listen to the interview backwards, you will hear speech mannerisms that could only be developed by immersion in the Bilderburger Shapeshifting Lizard cultural milieu. His masters at Koch Industries´ Dixie Cups division sent him on this dysinformation campaign. [I think there´s a little Alex Jones inside every liberal figuratively literally pulling the strings.]

the state propaganda scheme of global warming is the newest attempt at grabbing more Communist power over the ignorant farmers and peasants, just like in old Communist Russia.
A condescending scheme, so absurd as to be fraud in its barest form. Supposedly backed by many scientists, when a real scientific discovery never needs a majority, each and every politically correct (brainwashed) scientist speaking up for this fraud, is, without exception on government payroll.

The impossibility that one Prius, or ten thousand, will change the pattern of weather throughout all time and space, is so
madly outrageous as to be almost high absurdist comedy.

The EPA has fascistically grabbed their police powers, virtually

The so-called climate experts could not predict last week this current hurricane coming up the East Coast and now giving me about 3 inches of rain! They are hardly believable going a century or two out.

In my own lifetime (60+) the science "experts" have changed or corrected the following: the age of the earth from 3.5 billion to 4.7 billion, (about a third difference), the age of the universe from 6 billion to now 14 billion (a lot more than double), whether dinosaurs were killed by an asteroid (now they think yes), whether Pluto is a planet (now it isn´t), whether black holes exist or not (now they do), Jupiter had 12 moons and now it has 63 (yes, 63) and only Saturn had rings and now 3 more planets (Jupiter, Neptune and Uranus) have rings.

I could go on but you get the idea. Egg-head scientists can´t be trusted --- especially when pushing social agendas.

I am a meteorologist. Col (ret) Cunningham is correct. There is no such thing as man made climate change. The sun causes climate changes, not human beings. Climate Alarmism is indeed a fraud. The 97% figure is the percentage of politicians who are pushing this fraud in a further attempt to have the government control our lives.

Legalized, Not Prosecuted: Illegal

SSI-Collecting Baby Son

The U.S. government not only failed to prosecute an illegal alien who stole the identity of his dead baby son—who had collected SSI before he died—but granted the father legal status to work in the United States. This one-time illegal alien, the Office of Inspector General for the Social Security Administration believes, fraudulently used his son’s Social Security Number for at least three years. Yet, he was not prosecuted, according to the IG’s office, because his case did not meet the prosecutorial guidelines of the U.S. attorney for New Jersey. In fact, this case might never have come to light had the IG

HOUSTON, Texas--While the Obama Administration has largely expressed surprise at the sharp increase in illegal immigrants from Central America this year, the Health and Human Services (HHS) budget for processing unaccompanied foreign minors has exploded in recent years, raising questions about whether the administration could have foreseen, or did foresee, the crisis. After being apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, many illegal immigrants are then put into the custody of HHS where they receive a myriad of taxpayer-subsidized benefits including housing, food, vocational training, education, and even legal

The story was not about the ongoing wave of illegal aliens from Central America--many of them children--crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. Rather, it was about the rules on when deadly force may be used by Border Patrol agents in the course of their duties--with a view to making it harder for them to do so. In the course of an interview with newly-appointed U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, Inskeep does not even try to hide his bias: he

Tonight on “The Kelly File,” Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt discussed President Barack Obama’s reaction to the Flight MH17 crash, compared to former President Ronald Reagan’s response back in 1983 when Korean Airlines Flight 007 was shot down by Soviet Union fighters. The Korean Airlines flight was shot down en route to South Korea by Soviet Union fighter pilots when it drifted into Soviet airspace, killing 60 Americans, including a congressman. Reagan ended his California vacation and flew back to Washington, D.C. In a speech four days later, Reagan said, “This was the Soviet Union against the world

FALFURRIAS, Texas – Far from the crisis along the border with Mexico in the Rio Grande Valley, the checkpoint here exists to deter those who made it this far but want to get away. To an American — let’s say a young white man– the three-lane checkpoint some 70 miles from the border seems far from threatening. A Border Patrol agent asks if you’re a U.S. citizen. Answer correctly, and he lets you through. But for illegal immigrants who want to elude capture, the Falfurrias checkpoint, with drug-sniffing dogs looming, is the likely end of the journey. So the migrants

This is ´La Bestia´ - or ´The Beast´ - which is perhaps the most treacherous train in the world. It is not built to carry passengers, but that doesn´t stop around 1,500 migrants piling on board the freight train´s roof. They are trying to reach the Mexico-U.S. border to start a new life in America. Most are refugees fleeing endemic violence in Central America. But they face a terrifying journey ahead of them. For years Mexico´s notorious drug gangs have been in control of the route, charging $100 (£64) or more for permission to mount the train. Threats, attacks and extortion continue en route

It is at times like these, when he is pushed kicking and screaming into the crucible, that Obama’s callowness shows. For his supporters, that jejune, jocular air has been a plus for almost six years. For the rest of us, it has served as a liability and an irritation. Yesterday, it became a wholesale embarrassment. On the perpetual-campaign trail, the pattern is familiar.

At his weekly press briefing, CNSNews.com asked Boehner: “You’ve said you disagree with calls to impeach the president over abuse of power via executive actions. But under the Constitution the House actually has the power of the purse.

(Video) The Washington Free Beacon has put together a greatest hits compilation of the Democrats’ border security quotes. Why would the Democrats continuously insist that the border is secure? Perhaps because Republicans insist on having a secure border before discussing any type of immigration reform legislation. Democrats don’t think people will catch up to this at some point? The PR game that carried Obama – health care lies and all – to the White House is showing significant signs of incompetent wear and tear
