From the Global Warming Hoax Department:
The Internet is the final stage of democracy, because it took information out of the hands of a few and into the hands of everybody. The American Meteorological Society argued for their retention of control of information and thereby the debate.
“What is important scientific information and how it is interpreted in the policy debates is an important part of our jobs.” “That is, after all, the very reasons for the mix of science and policy in the IPCC.” John Daly correctly called this “Scientism”.
Let me set one thing straight, the hoax I am referring to when I say, “From the Global Warming Hoax Department” is the hoax of blaming the world’s warming on man’s co2, not the fact that the world has warmed since the last Ice Age. I personally believe that the warming is over, and we are moving into a cooling people, I just hope that it does not cool on down into another Ice Age. Instead of co2 being the driver of the warming I believe it to be the sun that causes out periods of warming and cooling. I also believe that this “forcing”, to put in alarmists’ jargon, is related to the sunspots or lack thereof.
I make no claims of being a climate scientist, but am of average intelligence, if not above, and do have the ability to understand concepts, arguments, and statics, gained in acquiring two undergraduate degrees, one in Electronic Engineering and the other in Computer Information Systems, as well as an MBA. I am making no appeal to authority here, just giving an argument to back up my assertion at the beginning of this paragraph. While no climate scientist, I have followed the arguments both pro and con for at least the last 15 years.
The conclusion I have come to is that the world’s governments have joined in on the hoax being perpetrated by the UN’s IPCC to use as a whip to force the people into compliance with UN Agenda 21. The term “Conspiratorial Theorist ” is used to ridicule people who come to this conclusion to mitigate the damage they can do by spreading their opinions. Before the Internet this was easily done, no one would print their ideas, but the Internet has changed that, and people like me can self publish both on social media and on personal blogs. The Internet allows anyone and everyone the ability to research an issue, read the papers and studies at their leisure for little expense. Why do you think that the government is so hell bent on regulating the Web? Why countries like Iran and China limit both the source they can reach and what they in turn can say without arrest?
If they lose the control of information they lose control of the agenda, just like the Global Warming Hoaxers have lost control of the information and thus control of the debate, They resort to name calling, Denialist, Conspiratorial Theorist,
Here is a classic example of the attempt to control information from a leaked email from February 2, 2005.
Mike (Mann), I presume congratulations are in order – so congrats etc!
Just sent loads of station data to Scott. Make sure he documents everything better this time ! And don’t leave stuff lying around on ftp sites – you never know who is trawling them. The two MMs have been after the CRU station data for years. If they ever hear there is a Freedom of Information Act now in the UK, I think I’ll delete the file rather than send to anyone. Does your similar act in the US force you to respond to enquiries within 20 days? – our does ! The UK works on precedents, so the first request will test it. We also have a data protection act, which I will hide behind. Tom Wigley has sent me a worried email when he heard about it – thought people could ask him for his model code. He has retired officially from UEA so he can hide behind that. IPR should be relevant here, but I can see me getting into an argument with someone at UEA who’ll say we must adhere to it !
Here is a link to the sunspot data:
