One of the biggest scams perpetrated on the American public is the whole climate change nonsense.
It’s a racket designed for liberals to more heavily regulate businesses, and get their paws on a bigger slice of company profits to “redistribute the wealth,” because…socialism.
The science behind “climate change” is not cut and dried by any stretch of the imagination, no matter how hard those on the left try to make it seem that way.In fact, there’s a significant amount of controversy surrounding it, particularly involving a few key scientists from the Obama era.
Now the watchdog group Judicial Watch is suing to gain access to records and expose the reality behind this nonsense.
According to CNS News:Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Commerce to obtain all records of communications between two top scientists in the Obama administration who “heavily influenced” the government’s “climate change policy and its backing of the Paris Agreement,” said the government watchdog group in a statement.
The records are being sought because they could shed light on a scandal about alleged misuse of climate data to hype global warming and because the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a component of the Commerce Department, refused to comply with a Feb. 6 FOIA request for the data.“This new lawsuit could result in the release of emails that will help Americans understand how Obama administration officials may have mishandled scientific data to advance the political agenda of global warming alarmism,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
Judicial Watch is seeking all records of communications from January 20, 2009 to January 20, 2017 between NOAA scientist Thomas Karl and John Holdren, the former director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Holdren, as reported by CNSNews.com, has written in support of worldwide wealth redistribution, an end to the auto industry, economic de-development of the United States, and his view that born babies are not yet “human beings.”
Judicial Watch quotes from a Daily Mail newspaper report about a scandal involving Thomas Karl, who was accused by then-fellow NOAA scientist John Bates of allegedly manipulating global warming data to refute the idea that there has been a pause in global warming since 1998, which apparently would undermine the idea that man-made greenhouse gases contribute to climate change.
Dr. Bates, who is highly respected and helped craft the NOAA’s internal evaluation procedures, claims the NOAA “breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the U.N. climate conference in Paris in 2015,” reported the Daily Mail.
“The report claimed that the ‘pause’ or ‘slowdown’ in global warming in the period since 1998 — revealed by U.N. scientists in 2013 — never existed, and that world temperatures had been rising faster than scientists expected,” said the report. But Dr. Bates provided “irrefutable evidence that the paper was based on misleading, ‘unverified’ data,” and “it was never subjected to NOAA’s rigorous internal evaluation process, which Bates devised,” reported the Daily Mail.
What? Scientists used “climate data” to stir up the emotions and feelings of easily duped, low information Americans to get them on board with their little scam to gain control over the free market?
Get out of town!
The left has used environmental causes to bully their way past the doors of small businesses for decades to steal their livelihoods for the sake of gaining more power and lining their own pockets.
Let’s hope Judicial Watch is successful in obtaining these records, and is able to expose these people for who they really are.
