Then take a look at the latest information and realities that continue to show that man made global warming and climate change may not be real at all.
- China agreed to “target,” not attain, “target” a level of its energy consumption to 20% from renewable resources by 2030, fifteen years from now.
- Obama agreed that American families and businesses will try to reduce its carbon based emissions by at least 26% by 2025 relative to 2005 levels.
- Apparently, there are no repercussions if either promise or target is missed.
- Heritage and others correctly point out that this is not a balanced deal: “This is not a planet-saving climate-change pact. Rather, this plan represents unilateral economic disarmament by the United States as Beijing continues its quest to replace America as the globe’s economic superpower.”
- Changing China’s energy energy mix and raising prices by going to highly inefficient forms of electricity production is in direct conflict with it’s long term vision of becoming the world's largest economic power.
- And this deal is really not likely to start in the short term at least, given the slowdown in the Chinese economy.
- But Obama is serious about the U.S. side of the deal since he and his control of the EPA are unilaterally, and probably un-Constitutionally, trying to force the U.S. economy and American families to switch to other forms of more expensive energy and pay more for electricity, which is currently at the highest level ever as an American household expense.
- Restricting U.S. energy production while China and the rest of the world do nothing is an economic disaster for us, raising energy prices and putting many thousands of American energy workers out of a job.
- China is bringing a new coal driven electric production plant online about once a week on average.
- They are building up a tremendous infrastructure to bring coal produced electricity from the western part of China to the eastern part of China, an infrastructure investment that will likely substantially increase, not decrease, their carbon footprint for the coming decades.
- The Chinese have set out a five year, $275 billion plan to learn how to get better at fracking, increasing their use of oil.
- China continues to import large amounts of coal from...the United States. Thus, we have Obama trying to kill the domestic U.S. coal industry while China burns more and more of our own coal.
- China just signed a $300 billion pipeline deal with Russia to bring Russian oil down to China for their domestic consumption.
- The Heritage article does not even talk about the large investments that India is making in its coal industry or the fact that much of Europe is turning back to the use of carbon intensive coal due to Germany’s shutdown of its nuclear energy capability and that sanctions against Russia have made their natural gas supply from Russia more fragile and dangerous.
The reality is that the world, and China in particular, have no real intentions of changing their carbon footprint, increasing the cost of energy to their economies and citizens. And it is not as if the U.S. has been a bad global citizen in this area. It has already reduced its carbon footprint by well over 10% over the past decade as fracking and other technologies have kicked in to produce less intensive natural gas energy usage.
4) Several years ago, as a result of hackers getting access to confidential emails that had been exchanged by global warming scientists, it was found that many of those scientists were at least inferring that raw data needed to be changed or adjusted to conform better to the failing global warming forecasts models. In other words, they were doing what Al Gore was accusing global warming doubters of doing, not believing in the scientific method. It becomes difficult to believe any scientist that tries to make reality conform to their preconceived notions of what reality is even if it means changing the actual numbers of reality.
Although it has been emerging for seven years or more, one of the most extraordinary scandals of our time has never hit the headlines. Yet another little example of it lately caught my eye when, in the wake of those excited claims that 2014 was “the hottest year on record”, I saw the headline on a climate blog: “massive tampering with temperatures in South America.” The evidence on Notalotofpeopleknowthat, uncovered by Paul Homewood, was indeed striking.
Puzzled by those “2014 hottest ever” claims, which were led by the most quoted of all the five official global temperature records – Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (Giss) – Homewood examined a place in the world where Giss was showing temperatures to have risen faster than almost anywhere else: a large chunk of South America stretching from Brazil to Paraguay.
Noting that weather stations there were thin on the ground, he decided to focus on three rural stations covering a huge area of Paraguay. Giss showed it as having recorded, between 1950 and 2014, a particularly steep temperature rise of more than 1.5C: twice the accepted global increase for the whole of the 20th century.
But when Homewood was then able to check Giss’s figures against the original data from which they were derived, he found that they had been altered. Far from the new graph showing any rise, it showed temperatures in fact having declined over those 65 years by a full degree. When he did the same for the other two stations, he found the same. In each case, the original data showed not a rise but a decline.
Damning accusations if true. How can we trust anyone, Al Gore, the Federal government, the EPA, NASA, etc. if deception is part of their argument and not science?
