The Global Warming Hoax is Now Killing People

By Alan Caruba

By Friday, February 10th, an estimated 500 Europeans had died from the freezing weather gripping the continent. This is the price they and British citizens are paying for embracing the global warming hoax, spending billions for wind power when they should have been building coal-fired and other sources of energy to heat their homes and businesses.

As the British daily, The Telegraph, reported on Friday, “Serbia has started implementing power cuts in a desperate bid to stave off the collapse of its national grid as the country suffers the effects of days of freezing temperatures.”

I and others have been warning for years that the Earth has been cooling since 1998 and that the planet is on the cusp of a new ice age because the average length of an interglacial period of warmth between such ages is now coming to an end after the passage of some 11,500 years.

All aspects of global warming legislation and spending programs must be utterly reversed if we are not going to see huge losses of life and the disruption of entire economies.

The Ottawa Citizen published an Agence France Presse article on Friday reporting that “Thick ice closed vast swaths of the Danube on Thursday, crippling shipping on Europe’s busiest waterway, as the death toll from bitter cold across the continent rose…as it has every day for nearly two weeks.” The report noted that “Navigation was impossible or restricted in Serbia, Croatia, Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary and Austria, as ice covered the river or formed dangerous floes in shipping lanes.”

No shipping means no delivery of coal and oil and no shipping of food and other necessities. Europe is freezing over as the United States has been experiencing an unusually mild winter thus far. That, too, is likely to yield to the increased cooling of the planet and then, maybe, Americans will realize the threat to their lives that the closing of coal-fired plants, instigated by the Environmental Protection Agency, really means.

In England, the Mail, reported on Sunday, February 12th, that large numbers of its elderly citizens are being “frozen to death as fuel bills soar: hypothermia cases among the elderly double in five years.” England, now gripped by foolish green notions of renewable energy, has covered itself with wind turbines, despoiling its countryside and coasts while proving unreliable and incapable of meeting its energy needs.

Figures showed that “1,876 patients were treated in hospital for hypothermia in 2010-2011, up from 950 in 2006-2007” reported the Mail. “Three-quarters of victims were pensioners, with cases soaring among the over-60s more than any other age group.”

In Europe, other news organizations reported that “Many of the dead were homeless people, who literally froze to death as the temperatures dropped to minus 50 degrees in some parts of the continent. Their bodies were found in the streets buried under snow, in rivers, and in doorways. Dozens of people were also killed in weather-related accidents.”

Writing in a Turkish newspaper, the Hurriyet Daily News, Sophie Quintin Adali, an analyst for a project of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, said, “As if the debt crisis weren’t bad enough news, the climate freeze sweeping across Europe is wreaking havoc by severely disrupting travel, business and people’s lives. Local authorities, indeed whole countries, are caught poorly prepared.” Turkey is experiencing record snowfall and low temperatures.

“The lack of readiness should come as no surprise because for decades the sensationalist message of global warming has dominated the public area,” said Ms. Adali.

“Politicians and decades of political environmentalism have a lot to answer for,” said Ms. Adali. “The man-made climate theory…is still supported by a mighty European Union bureaucracy and a green network addicted to public funds.” Even now, the Green Climate Fund “through which millions of taxpayer’s money will still be disbursed” is threatening the lives and the economy of people worldwide.

The current freeze is not just affecting Europe, but reaching across the Mediterranean to North African nations. And at some point America will feel it too.

We have not built a single new nuclear plant in America since 1978. EPA rules are forcing the closure of coal-fired plants throughout the nation. The national grid for the distribution of electricity is in need of upgrades.

The nation’s policies are controlled by the most environmentally insane administration in its history, wasting billions on so-called green energy. Its new budget raises taxes and proposes a trillion-dollar deficit without any significant effort to cut the spending that has left this and future generations in debt while the price of gas soars to new heights.

America and the rest of the world have been horribly deceived by the United Nations Intergovernmental Climate Change Panel that continues to drive the global warming hoax. The lying scientists who got on the global warming gravy train, the politicians that embraced it, and the media that misled millions are all culpable, all responsible.

They should be driven from office, defunded, and chased through the streets like villagers in pursuit of  Frankenstein.

People are freezing to death in their homes and in the streets. What will it take to drive a stake into the heart of the global warming monster?

This is a new low in nuttiness. You really should wake up to the facts - global warming is not going away, no matter how much you wish. You have no scrap of evidence that the scientists are somehow hoaxing people.

What will it take to drive a stake into the heart of this hoax... a miracle and people waking up to the fact that evil is upon us and they had well better be standing up and fighting this evil.

Alan Caruba said...

@Robert: The real science and real truth about this hoax if you would just visit or, or or any of the many other sites that offer the data and other information on a daily basis. If you want to be stupid, do it on your own time, not mine.

Yeah, global warming is causing all that KILLER cold...

As always, it is natural forces which govern the temperature. After all, "climate" is but a compilation of weather events over a given period.

I have found that at least most of the PhDs involved in the "carbon dioxide is bad" nonsense, don't even know or follow the basic rules of arithmetic.

Even if the carbon dioxide increased in temperature by 10 Celsius degrees, it would not make a measurable difference in the aggregate temperature of the far more molecules of nitrogen and oxygen. Perhaps knowledge of the fundamentals of both arithmetic and chemistry are severely needed, I do think.

(40ppm of CO2 = 40 molecules of carbon dioxide amid 99,960 molecules of nitrogen and oxygen)

It's too bad Nobels can't be rescinded, at the very least, and that the hoaxsters can't be imprisoned [no heating in their cells, please].

There is no greenhouse effect and therefore no man made global warming.

This is simply proven by the fact the Sun can heat the Moon to ~120 degrees C during the day.

This observed FACT correlates with the result given by the Stefan-Boltzmann equation.

So why doesn't the Earth get even hotter ?? We are the same distance from the Sun so receive the same radiation AND we have the dreaded "greenhouse gases" to fry us even more.

The simple truth is the Earth never even approaches the maximum temperature the Sun is capable of heating it to.

So the atmosphere and oceans ACTUALLY keep the Earth COOLER during the day than otherwise would occur - remember the Moon's ~120 degrees C - Google it if you don't believe me - it is fact !!!

So there is no "greenhouse effect" adding extra heat - the oceans and atmosphere COOL the Earth's surface through evaporation and convection and as a result produce weather.

Anyone that cannot appreciate this simple truth is either deluded or lacking in intellectual ability.

I challenge anyone to explain this obvious puzzle - 2 "planets" - Earth and Moon - orbiting the Sun at the same distance subject to the same solar radiation - one, the Moon, heats to ~120 degrees C during the day and has no "greenhouse gases" - hell it doesn't even have an atmosphere at all - while the other, the Earth never reaches more than ~60 degrees C even though it has the magical "greenhouse gases".

The answer is obvious - our atmosphere reduces the solar radiation and protects us during the day whilst the accumulated energy slowly escapes at night and we stay warm enough till the Earth spins and the whole cycle starts again.

There is no "greenhouse effect" - if there were the Earth would be much hotter.

The minus 18 degrees C temperature the climate "scientists" talk about occurs at an altitude of 5 kilometres in the atmosphere - it is not the surface temperature - the first in a sequence of lies and distortions.

Roscomac said...

There is NO "greenhouse effect".

This is simple to prove.

There are 2 planets orbiting the Sun at a similar distance.

One, the Moon has surface temperatures approaching 120 degrees C during the day. It has no atmosphere, no water and no magical "greenhouse gases".

The other, the Earth, despite being subject to a similar amount of solar radiation rarely reaches more than 45 degrees C (certainly 60 degrees C has never been exceeded) during the day and has permanent ice caps. It has an atmosphere, water and the magical "greenhouse gases".

So why is the Earth so much cooler than the Moon during the day ??

The answer is obvious. The solar radiation is capable of heating the Earth's surface to very high levels - about 87 degrees C for the 70 % of the soalr constant radiation which enters Earth's atmosphere - an albedo of 30% is genearlly accepted - and therefore, obviously, the oceans and the atmosphere act to reduce the heating effect of the Sun and do NOT increase the temperature - such a proposal is impossible by the way.

But even if you think I am insane and still cling fervantly to the THEORY of the "greenhouse effect" you must explain why the Sun can heat the Moon's surface to ~120 degrees C during the day while the Earth rarely exceeds 45 degrees C.

This is an Inconvenient Truth - our oceans and atmosphere act like air-conditioners removing heat from the surface by evaporation and convestion high into the atmosphere hwere it radiates to space.

Alan you are correct. Whilst the UK has had less snow than last winter, so far, the central and eastern parts of Europe are in trouble. Robert Davidson should wake up to the current data and stop reading the Guardian. climates always change and now we seem to be getting colder. he should also look at the released Climategate emails, both series 1 and 2 which disclose that the scientists from CRU at UEA and hadley are hand in glove with Hansen, Mann et al to deceive people, suppress data and even alter data. You called this a hoax but is a blatant pack of lies.

Hi Alan,

A sarcastic comment -

Good job we are experiencing Global Warming. It could have been worse. Imagine how cold it would have been if we were experiencing Global Cooling!

I do think that the Greenies, who believe that we need to cut the global population by 90% will be unperturbed by the deaths, indeed, they are celebrating the fact that more 'vermin' are being exterminated. Rememeber, you are talking about people that celebrate every time a woman gets an aborting and the child then gets killed.

Robert Davidson is an Aussie living in the semi-topics and February is the July for that part of the planet.

If he were up here in the great Northwest USA this (brr!) February his opinion would be different...maybe:-)

Sorry about the double post before - when I posted the first I was told the Blog doesn't accept anonymous posts and thought it was lost. So I posted again.

@Roscomac: No problem. You provided good information.

You unfortunately, are either misguided or an idiot.

You're right, the atmosphere is what keeps us cool.

unfortunately man made emmissions are NOT part of the natural balance of the atmosphere. They actually DAMAGE the atmosphere, weakening our only layer of protection between us and the sun.

Not to mention the emissions such as SO2 which cause fun things like acid rain. Whilst not strictly damaging the atmosphere, acid rain destroys crops, soil and in extreame cases can fundamentally compramise buildings (depening on what they are built out of).

So you're right, the only thing between us and the temperatures on the moon is the atmosphere. Sadly, continued ignorance such as yours as to the difference between the atmosphere and man made emissions is going to be the death of us all.

@Roscomac: There are so many errors of fact in your comment I am publishing here mostly to embarrass you.
