Warming Denial : Backwoods Revival

Lies and half-baked misstatements float around like flotsam and jetsam on a slopping and washing freight canal, refusing to sink, but with no legs to stand on…count the errors in this Redress of Grievance, below, and you will see how the combined effect of poor Media and anti-Science wreckers have led to a remarkably bad understanding of the facts :-

“Opinion: Representatives receive Redress of Grievance request regarding global warming : Letter to the editor 22.MAR.10 : Subject: Citizen Redress of Grievance regarding human-caused climate change claim and subsequent legislation and regulations”

“Dear Governor Schwarzenegger, Rep. Wally Herger, Rep. Dan Lungren, Senator Aanestad, Senator Feinstein, Assemblyman Nielsen and County Supervisors:”

“As citizens of Yolo County and Colusa County, the State of California, and United States of America, we feel it is our duty to submit to you a request for a Redress of Grievance as guaranteed under the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, regarding the fraudulent hypothesis that global warming/climate change is human-caused. Of serious concern are the resultant outcomes of such untruths that have or will impact legislation, regulations, and taxes/fees in such a manner that will violate our personal and collective freedoms, confiscate our property and financial resources, and impact generations to come.”

“The petition for Redress of Grievance was inserted into the First Amendment of the Constitution to allow the People to peaceably remedy abuses. It is the Government’s responsibility to address the legitimate concerns and grievances of its citizens and act in the best interest of its people… acting to ensure their unalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, as set forth in the Declaration of Independence.”

“While the proponents of human–caused climate change declare that the debate on science is over, current evidence suggests otherwise. The human-caused climate change hypothesis lacks scientific validity and implementing remedies to such will only irreversibly damage human health and prosperity.”

“The following facts are submitted only as a starting point to disclaim the manipulated and fraudulent science that experts claim is “settled science” when, in fact, it is not.”

“Over 31,000 scientists — including 9,021 PhDs — signed a petition sponsored by the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine rejecting claims of human-caused global warming. Their statement: “There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing, or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.” ”

“Carbon Dioxide is not a pollutant. Carbon Dioxide increases follow temperature increases, thus the “hockey stick” argument is erroneous and misleading. Congressional Hearings Break “Hockey Stick”, by H. Sterling Burnett, Ph.D., The Heartland Institute, October 2006.”

“The earth has experienced natural warming and cooling cycles since its existence, long before the industrialization of man. The earth has had eight warming cycles since the last Ice Age. Humans flourished in warmer stable conditions, while colder periods, i.e. Dark Ages and the Little Ice Age, produced human calamity such as the bubonic plague. Key Global Warming Facts, by Dennis T. Avery, Heartland Institute, October 2007.”

“There is a strong direct (95%) correlation between Earth’s temperatures and sunspots since 1860. There is virtually no correlation between our temperature and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Key Global Warming Facts, by Dennis T. Avery, Heartland Institute, October 2007.”

“Based on the work of Professor Latif, current evidence suggests that 20 and 30-year temperature shifts are related to Pacific and Atlantic multi-decadal oscillations, which are massive rearrangements in the dominant patterns of the weather; and their shifts explain the changes in world temperatures during the 20th and 21st centuries. The Mini Ice Age Starts Here, by David Rose, January 2010.”

“The average temperature in December 2009 was 30.2° F. This was -3.2° F. cooler than the 1901- 2000 (20th century) average, the 14th coolest December in 115 years. Contiguous United States Climate Summary, December 2009, NOAA Satellite and Information Service…”

I could go on with the cut and paste, but you get the general idea. Myths plucked from anti-Science websites, misinterpretations of the words and works of Scientists, plain old lies and fallacies, all mixed in there.
