Global warming is a fraud.
Once upon a time, I might have been convinced that there was something to the IPCC conclusions about the infamous hockey stick of temperatures, but I've always been skeptical of the Green Movement. Well it turns out that this hockey stick has as its originating dataset, 12 trees.
Twelve trees whose growth rings were the basis of the conclusions that have shaken the world were selected by a dude named Briffa and another dude named McIntyre has called him on it. But it took years. Huh what? I mean to say quite plainly that the 'overwhelming majority of scientists' made their conclusion on the basis of a report whose original data was not made available for scientific review. The big bloody secret was that it was twelve measly trees.
So it's official. That thing I've been distrusting for all of these years is just another scientific animism. A 'scientific' sounding idea that people who don't understand the science take as the whole truth and nothing but the truth, when in fact they are merely taking it on the authority of scientists. Of course that's what I'm doing right now, except I'm being very specific. McIntyre said Briffa was mistaken, and Briffa admitted that there were only 12 trees.
So McIntyre looked at all of the conditions under which the 12 trees were selected, and took a larger data set from the area. Guess what he found? No evidence for global warming. The twelve trees nullified geological testimony. They misrepresented the truth. The truth is that the planet is fine.
Not long ago, I overheard some talk that all of the temperature variations that the Greenies have been talking about are explicable as epiphenomenon of El Nino. And I've published this claim that carbon dioxide is hardly poison, but that clouds and water vapor are the the big ballers of climate change - kind of back to what I learned as a kid. And of course the late Michael Crichton's State of Fear was all over these activists.
So now all you have to do is mention what should become common knowledge in a matter of days. The Yamal Dataset was faulty. The hockey stick was a myth. The 'scientific consensus' was false.
