Climate Change? UK Ideologues Cry Wolf; WH and UN Channel Chicken Little

Written by Marilyn Assenheim on April 1, 2014

In a world increasingly gone mad it is no surprise that the United Nitwits has ramped up the cause of impending global doom as its primary concern. The cataclysm won’t stem from UN support of third-world, banana-republics or UN sanctioned “strong men”. No, this catastrophe is, according to the UN, entirely due to global warming. Yes, global warming, the go-to, eco-Nazi feint when every other liberal scheme is collapsing faster than the Hindenburg went up in flames.

On Monday, the Associated Press posted its “Big Story”:

If the world doesn’t cut pollution of heat-trapping gases, the already noticeable harms of global warming could spiral “out of control”,’the head of a United Nations scientific panel warned Monday.

And he’s not alone. The Obama White House says it is taking this new report as a call for action… After several days of late-night wrangling, more than 100 governments unanimously approved the scientist-written 49-page summary — which is aimed at world political leaders. The summary mentions the word ‘risk’ an average of about 5 1/2 times per page.

What they don’t say is that the “scientist-written summary” of a 32 volume, 2610-page report was, as Breitbart disclosed, doctored in order to make the report’s insignificant conclusions more lurid:

Green ideologues working for the British government helped “sex up’” the latest Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change report in order to make its conclusions sound more scary than the evidence warrants… The draft version of the report’s Summary For Policymakers made the startling admission that the economic damage caused by “climate change’” would be between 0.2 and 2 percent of global GDP -… this (insignificant) estimate did not suit the alarmist narrative of several of the government delegations at the recent IPCC talks…Among them was the British one, comprising several members of the deep green Department of Energy and Climate Change, which insisted on doctoring this section of the Summary For Policymakers in order to exaggerate the potential for more serious economic damage. “Losses are more likely than not to be greater, rather than smaller, than this range.” There was no evidence whatsoever in the body of the report to justify this statement.

The lie was exposed by a correspondent for the UK Guardian, Suzanne Goldenberg. She cited British officials who were “disappointed” that economist Richard Tol requested that his name be removed from the original report because of duplicitous governmental tampering. The government said that Tol “had shown insufficient regard for the possibility of catastrophic climate change.” Green-shirt governments everywhere picked up the indignant chorus of howls. The liberal “I-say-so-so-that-makes-it-true” machine kicked into overdrive. According to Breitbart:

Representatives from other governments were said to be similarly concerned that Tol’s predictions of economic damage lacked the requisite doominess. Other governments, including Belgium, Norway and the US, also took issue with Tol’s estimate of potential climate losses. France said: “Its message is unclear and is not widely accepted by the community.” Japan suggested the line carry a lengthy clarification or be struck off completely. One delegation – Nicaragua’s – pressed for the upper band limit of potential economic damage to be raised as high as 6 percent.

And there you have it. Fear-mongering mania does not agree with scientific fact so it creates its own. Nicaragua is thinking small. Why not generate estimates at 20%? Why not 100% and be done with it?

Blatant disregard for facts is beyond sane comprehension. Scientists insist that the planet is still entangled in its fifth ice age. Yet, so intent is the radical left on supplanting what is with what it wishes, that entire nations are falsifying facts outright to make it so. But why? The answer is what it always is; follow the money.

Less talked about is the White House agenda. Clearly, The Lyin’ King has good reason to cringe from the repercussions of his actions. He always reverts to yet another global warming scare, with the MSM and other fantasist lickspittles in full cry behind him. Concern for global warming as a national issue hovers around zero. So, other than pointing a finger and yelling “look behind you!” as a distraction, what’s going on? Once again; follow the money.

That, coupled with ever-tighter control over America. The American Thinker published a piece on Monday that has gone all-but unnoticed: The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020…”It’s not just the dairy industry that the Obama administration is clamping down on. The White House is looking to regulate methane emissions across the economy from agriculture to oil and gas operations — despite methane emissions falling 11 percent since 1990.”

As if facts matter.

The American Thinker article concludes: “One way or another, you’re going to learn to love that fast-food veggiekaleburger… Because then, — thank you, UN and Mr. White House, thank you — there’ll finally be no more famines, conflicts, or wars.”

Sure. Destroying the food supply will certainly stop the sky from falling.
