It is clear from the Sunday news coverage of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's draft report, agreed to in Valencia, Spain by the representatives of some 140 nations, that the drive to impose a massive attack on the world's economic structure is now under way.
It is the equivalent of a cattle drive in which masses of the world's population must be deceived to permit a change in everything we associate with the modern world, its use of energy, its modern agricultural techniques, its vast transportation system, and the transformation of its economic system by the imposition of a "cap-and-trade" marketplace for "carbon credits" that will transfer billions of dollars to the scheme's creators, all in the name of saving the earth from immediate and near-future disaster.
If anything can and should totally discredit the United Nations, it is the IPCC. If anyone gives credence to the U.N, Secretary-General's statements, it will only be out of ignorance of the truth. Ban Ki-Moon says that, "Only urgent, global action will do" to avoid scenarios one would only expect to find in a science fiction movie or novel.
Ki-Moon decries both the United States and China as the world's two biggest producers of carbon dioxide. So what? Carbon dioxide's contribution to the earth's atmosphere is so small that it can hardly be measured. What ordinary sensible people call "the air", environmentalists call "greenhouse gases." Carbon dioxide represents barely 0.038% of the atmosphere! The primary elements are nitrogen (78%) and oxygen (20.95%).
Despite this, an Associated Press report states that the IPCC claims, "As early as 2020, 75 million to 250 million people in Africa will suffer water shortages and residents of Asia's largest cities will be at great risk of river and coastal flooding, according to the report."
"Europeans can expect extensive species loss, and North Americans will experience longer and hotter heat waves and greater competition for water."
These cataclysmic predictions are all based on computer models, all of which since 1988 when the IPCC came into being, have had to be revised over and over again as obvious and deliberate errors have been found and disputed.
However, it is the computer models themselves that are of no value no matter what they predict. No computer model or group of models can possibly begin to represent the unimaginable complexity of the earth's weather and climate cycles.
No computer model can even include the actions of the earth's clouds, but clouds are significant elements of the earth's weather, changing minute-to-minute and hour-to-hour across the face of the globe.
As for claims of massively rising oceans, these too are lies. It would take centuries for the IPCC's claims to even approximate the rise they predict. As to "fiercer storms and more frequent droughts", there have been and will always be storms and droughts. This is how the planet functions.
These and all the IPCC claims are a desperate effort to do great injury to the economies of the Western industrialized nations, and to those nations like China and India that are beginning to reflect the modernization that the West has innovated and developed.
Cloaked in the apocalyptic language of religion and purporting to be a "moral" issue, the IPCC and all the environmental groups supporting the global warming lies know that even a casual examination of the so-called "science" behind their claims will destroy them and their evil agenda.
