Today’s Fraud From The Union Of Concerned Scientists

With the Northeast facing up to two feet of snow this week, the Union of Concerned Scientists has this 100% fraudulent document on their web site

Across the Northeast, from Pennsylvania and New Jersey northward to Maine, signs of our rapidly changing climate
become clearer each year. Records show that spring is arriving sooner, summers are growing hotter, and winters are becoming warmer and less snowy

    Fraud is intentional. Incompetence is merely incompetence.

    • Gail Combs says:

      Phil, at this point it is FRAUD there can no longer be any question about the fact CAGW is politically motivated FRAUD. So lets start calling a spade a spade.

      The censoring of skeptics, firing of skeptical scientists, the constant fudging of data to support the failed CAGW conjecture, the denial of funding for any studies EXCEPT CAGW says FRAUD in huge capital letters.

      Twenty years ago it might have been ‘incompetence’ but after the last IPCC report showing ALL the climate models flunked the reality test . After Donna Laframboise crowd sources Audit of the 2007 UN Climate Report found

      21 of 44 chapters in the United Nations’ Nobel-winning climate bible earned an F on a report card we are releasing today. Forty citizen auditors from 12 countries examined 18,531 sources cited in the report – finding 5,587 to be not peer-reviewed.

      Contrary to statements by the chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the celebrated 2007 report does not rely solely on research published in reputable scientific journals. It also cites press releases, newspaper and magazine clippings, working papers, student theses, discussion papers, and literature published by green advocacy groups. Such material is often called “grey literature.”….

      Based on the grading system used in US schools, 21 chapters in the IPCC report receive an F (they cite peer-reviewed sources less than 60% of the time), 4 chapters get a D, and 6 get a C. There are also 5 Bs and 8 As….

      No one except those with an agenda can now back CAGW.

      As Donna recently said “If the IPCC was a scientific body, the science section of its upcoming report would be summarized by scientists and that would be the end of the matter. Instead, the science summary will be the battleground at a 4-day political gathering.”

      SO it is POLITICAL!
      “We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.” – Ex-senator Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation and the guy who brags about colluding with James Hansen into tricking Congress into believing Global Warming and theferfore ratifying the UN Framework on Climate Change.

      Wirth is now working for the guy who said
      “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” – Ted Turner, founder of CNN and the UN Foundation

      ”The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization we have in the US. We have to stop these third World countries right where they are.”
      Michael Oppenheimer
      Environmental Defense Fund

      ”Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.”
      Professor Maurice King

      ”Complex technology of any sort is an assault on the human dignity. It would be little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy, because of what we might do with it.”
      Amory Lovins,
      Rocky Mountain Institute

      ”The big threat to the planet is people: there are too many, doing too well economically and burning too much oil.” —-Sir James Lovelock, BBC Interview

      “Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.” —Dr. Paul Ehrlich, Anne Ehrlich, and Dr. John Holdren, Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment, 1970, p. 323
      And this idiot is the science guru in the US?

      “We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams,
      free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land.” – David Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

      And this one is REALLY SCARY

      “The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual challenge to all of humanity. It is also our greatest opportunity to lift Global Consciousness to a higher level.” —Al Gore, Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech

      These people are not scientists they are Fanatics with an agenda and that agenda is really really bad for the rest of Humanity.

      • philjourdan says:

        Gail I agree about CAGW. However those pushing it fall into 2 camps. Fraudsters and incompetents. They may be fraudsters. But they come off more as incompetent simply due to the stupidity of their statements.

        • Daavid A says:

          Certainly both are possible. One would think these incompetent frauds would not have such success with their deception, but then again…Gruber..?

        • philjourdan says:

          Yes, and who did Gruber fool? He boasts about it. But when it comes right down to it, it was only the democrats (liberals) who supported it and voted for it – very similar to the CAGW fraud. It does not divide along party lines, only insofar as where the majority of morons are.

        • Hew Manatee says:

          Never overlook option 3: Deliberate disinformation.

        • Gail Combs says:

          Hew Manatee, I agree it is deliberate misinformation.

          It is not incompetence at this late stage in the game. We see too many ‘Believers’ come onto this and other websites and spout all sorts of nonsense trying to influence the fence sitters.

          You can never nail them down they just run in another direction spouting another line of misdirection. There is no argument of facts because they KNOW the facts do not support them but they NEED CAGW to scare the Sheeple into the direction of a world government run by unaccountable bureaucrats.
          See Dr Evans Climate Coup — The Politics

          How the regulating class is using bogus claims
          about climate change to entrench and extend their
          economic privileges and political control.

          Heck, the rough draft of the last IPCC Report showed there was no real global warming and the sun had a larger effect than was first thought. So the POLITICIANS spent four days rewriting the summary for policymakers and the scientists were then directed to change the scientific report to conform with the POLITICAL CONSENSUS!

          Dr Vincent Gray: “The [IPCC] climate change statement is an orchestrated litany of lies.”

          Dr Richard Tol: “The IPCC attracted more people with political rather than academic motives. In AR4, green activists held key positions in the IPCC and they succeeded in excluding or neutralising opposite voices.”

          Dr Eduardo Zorita: “Editors, reviewers and authors of alternative studies, analysis, interpretations, even based on the same data we have at our disposal, have been bullied and subtly blackmailed.”

          Dr Martin Manning: “Some government delegates influencing the IPCC Summary for Policymakers misrepresent or contradict the lead authors.”

          Dr Philip Lloyd: “I am doing a detailed assessment of the IPCC reports and the Summaries for Policy Makers, identifying the way in which the Summaries have distorted the science. I have found examples of a summary saying precisely the opposite of what the scientists said.”

          Dr Hans Labohm: “The alarmist passages in the IPCC Summary for Policymakers have been skewed through an elaborate and sophisticated process of spin-doctoring.”

          Dr Andrew Lacis: “There is no scientific merit to be found in the Executive Summary. The presentation sounds like something put together by Greenpeace activists and their legal department.”

          Dr Chris Landsea: “I cannot in good faith continue to contribute to a process that I view as both being motivated by pre-conceived agendas and being scientifically unsound.”

          Dr Richard Lindzen: “The IPCC process is driven by politics rather than science. It uses summaries to misrepresent what scientists say and exploits public ignorance.”

          Dr Fred Singer: “Isn’t it remarkable that the Policymakers Summary of the IPCC report avoids mentioning the satellite data altogether, or even the existence of satellites — probably because the data show a slight cooling over the last 18 years, in direct contradiction of the calculations from climate models?”

          Dr Eigil Friis-Christensen: “The IPCC refused to consider the sun’s effect on the Earth’s climate as a topic worthy of investigation. The IPCC conceived its task only as investigating potential human causes of climate change.”

          Dr David Wojick: “The public is not well served by this constant drumbeat of alarms fed by computer models manipulated by advocates.”

          Dr Roger Pielke: “All of my comments were ignored without even a rebuttal. At that point, I concluded that the IPCC Reports were actually intended to be advocacy documents designed to produce particular policy actions, but not a true and honest assessment of the understanding of the climate system.”

          Quotes from:

        • philjourdan says:

          The devotees you speak about are the faithful – the incompetents. Do they ever convert anyone? No, because their fanaticism inevitably causes them to descend into a tirade of epithets and ad hominems. They are true believers. They make fools of themselves and crow about the imaginary coup they scored.

          The fraudsters are the ones feeding them the information to spread. They are the ones getting rich. Do you think Apple is rich? He is just a mindless fool/tool. But Gavin is a fraudster. Not a very bright one, but one in a critical position of power so he must be brought into the hierarchy of the church.

  2. philjourdan says:

    And right on queue with this post –

    Dave Toleris is a regional forecaster that is more accurate than any of the local talking heads and even the NWS! He is also honest and explains why he blows it on the rare occasions he does. He has a website –, but his most up to date stuff is on his facebook page.

  3. Hew Manatee says:

    This really is a full court press.
    I wonder how long it will be before Dear Leader declares a state of national emergency, tears up what remains of the Constitution, suspends the democratic process and declares himself Leader for Life. I think “Papa Doc Obama” has a certain ring to it.

    • Gail Combs says:

      This is the Plan:

      1. Obummer, Al Sharpton and the rest of the Community Organizers have been priming the Useful Idiots (Blacks) to riot at the drop of a hat for the past six years.

      2. The Department of Homeland Security has named American Conservatives as Terrorist Threats The report even states: “Militia members most commonly [are] associate with 3rd party political groups. It is not uncommon for militia members to display Constitutional Party, Campaign for Liberty, or Libertarian material. These members are usually supporters of former Presidential Candidate [sic]: Ron Paul, Chuck Baldwin, and Bob Barr.”

      3. The DHS purchase order for 1.6 billion rounds of Ammo enough for a twenty year hot war in the USA. “…some of this purchase order is for hollow-point rounds, forbidden by international law for use in war, along with a frightening amount specialized for snipers…. DHS now is showing off its acquisition of heavily armored personnel carriers, repatriated from the Iraqi and Afghani theaters of operation…” Ralph Benko @ Forbes

      4. The intensive militarization of America’s police forces

      5. The evasculating of the Posse Comitatus Act, …the Posse Comitatus Act no longer provides the strong wall between the military and domestic law enforcement for which it was originally intended….

      And finally the torch to set off the internal war:
      The EPA’s War on Coal More recent evidence shows the collapse of the grid in the Northeast is looking surer and surer with a combination of shuttering coal plants, closing nuclear plants and the NIMBYs refusing to allow natural gas pipelines or plants to be built.

      Remember the “Arab Spring” riots that “weakened government legitimacy and destabilized the country?? That is the goal.

      • Gail Combs says:

        If blackouts don’t work as a trigger there is an additional fall back position.

        Skyrocketing electric costs. Skyrocketing Medical insurance costs, followed by Skyrocketing food prices. coupled by more loss of jobs thanks to the Spike in Regulations under Obama

        The Math That Predicted the Revolutions Sweeping the Globe Right Now

        …Ukraine, Venezuela, Thailand, Bosnia, Syria, and beyond. Revolutions, unrest and riots are sweeping the globe… There’s at least one common thread between the disparate nations…one element that has demonstrably proven to make these uprisings more likely: high global food prices…

        The paper’s author, Yaneer Bar-Yam, charted the rise in FAO food price index… and found that when it rose above 210, riots broke out worldwide…

        People forget the passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act and it’s long term effect. The UK passed similar laws. One dairy farmer in the UK said all his neighbors quit and he now spends 60% of his time doing paperwork not farming.

        The Food Safety Law has not been implemented yet but it will be shortly. At that point many US farmers will quit producing food or jack up the prices to pay for their increase in cost.

        Costs of new food safety rules remain years away
        January 5, 2013 (Three years is January 2016 just in time to effect the November presidential elections…)

        The Food and Drug Administration’s new food-safety rules will cost businesses about half a billion dollars annually. (Remember the implementation costs are ALWAYS low balled.]

        …It will still be another three years before the rules are implemented at the biggest farms and even longer at smaller farms. The new rules could cost large farms $30,000 a year, according to the FDA. [When your net farm income is ~ $50,000 for a 1/2 mil to a million dollars gross that is a LOT of money.] The federal agency did not break down costs for individual processing plants, but said the rules could cost manufacturers up to $475 million annually…

        This marks the first time the FDA has had real authority to regulate food on farms. The most sweeping food-safety guidelines in decades will require farmers to take new precautions against contamination, to include making sure workers’ hands are washed, irrigation water is clean, and that [WILD and Domestic] animals stay out of fields.*** Food manufacturers will have to submit food safety plans to the government to show they are keeping their operations clean….

        The farm and manufacturing rules are only one part of the food safety law. The bill also authorized more surprise inspections by the FDA and gave the agency additional powers to shut down food facilities….

        When the rules are implemented, companies will have to lay out illness-prevention plans, monitor their own progress and explain to the FDA how they would correct them.

        “The rules go very directly to preventing the types of outbreaks we have seen,” said [Monsanto’s Lawyer] Michael Taylor, FDA’s deputy commissioner for foods…

        *** This means you have to fence in your veggies and fruits to keep deer, mice and rabbits out.
        Food Safety’s Scorched Earth Policy

        Dick Peixoto planted hedges of fennel and flowering cilantro around his organic vegetable fields in the Pajaro Valley near Watsonville to harbor beneficial insects, an alternative to pesticides.

        He has since ripped out such plants in the name of food safety, because his big customers demand sterile buffers around his crops. No vegetation. No water. No wildlife of any kind.

        “I was driving by a field where a squirrel fed off the end of the field, and so 30 feet in we had to destroy the crop,” he said. “On one field where a deer walked through, didn’t eat anything, just walked through and you could see the tracks, we had to take out 30 feet on each side of the tracks and annihilate the crop.”

        In the verdant farmland surrounding Monterey Bay, a national marine sanctuary and one of the world’s biological jewels, scorched-earth strategies are being imposed on hundreds of thousands of acres in the quest for an antiseptic field of greens. And the scheme is about to go national. (Lochhead, C. 2009 )….

        This means not only fences but ripping out the Dust bowl era tree lines and grass strips used to control erosion.

        Most of the 2.1 million farmers in the USA are small farmers. A few years ago before the USDA decided to include ‘Rent’ on the farm house as income in the calculations, the yearly income of an average farmer was a MINUS $14,000 a year!
        From a more recent study

        How much are farms raking in?

        – In 2009 (the latest data available), the net earnings from farming activities on 90.5 percent of all farms in America (with sales less than $249,000) was on average $2,615.

        – 73.5 percent of all farm income comes from the top 5.3 percent of all farms (those bringing in $500,000 or above annually) in terms of gross revenue…

        As the Chinese say, May you live in interesting times.

          Thanks for sharing this and the links Gail. I keep trying to warn the farmers in the area.

        • Gail Combs says:

          Annie this is why I got out of selling meat animals and went with fiber animals instead. The USDA/FDA can fine you into bankruptcy and there is nothing much you can do. You don’t even know what all the regs mean or what new ones have just been written.

          Remember the goal of the the IPC, or the International Food and Agricultural Trade Policy Council or International Policy Council for short, is a world wide monopoly on food. They are the ones behind the WTO Agreement on Agriculture that is the reason behind the Food Safety law.****

          Another Way To Kill US Farmers: Seize Their Bank Accounts on Phony Charges

          Rady is careful about the information she puts out. I have dealt with her as an editor of some of the stuff I wrote.

          **** The IPC was created in 1987 explicitly to drive home the GATT agriculture rules of WTO at Uruguay talks. The IPC demands removal of ‘high tariff’ barriers in developing countries, remaining silent on the massive government subsidy to agribusiness in the USA.

          A look at the IPC membership will explain what interests it represents. [And it is NOT you and me or the farmers around the world.]
          The Chairman is Robert Thompson, former Assistant Secretary US Department of Agriculture and former Presidential economic adviser.
          Also included in the IPC are Bernard Auxenfans, former chairman Monsanto France; Allen Andreas of ADM/Toepfer;
          Andrew Burke, Bunge (US);
          Dale Hathaway former USDA official and head IFPRI (US).
          Other IPC members include Heinz Imhof, chairman of Syngenta (CH)
          Rob Johnson of Cargill (US) and USDA Agriculture Policy Advisory Council;
          Guy Legras (France) former EU Director General Agriculture,
          Rolf Moehler (Germany) former EU Director General Agriculture
          . Donald Nelson of Kraft Foods (US);
          Joe O’Mara of USDA,
          Hiroshi Shiraiwa of Mitsui & Co Japan;
          Jim Starkey former US Trade Representative Assistant;
          Hans Joehr, Nestle head of agriculture;
          Jerry Steiner, Monsanto (US).
          And Members Emeritus include Ann Veneman, herself a board member of a Monsanto subsidiary company before she became US Secretary of Agriculture for George W. Bush in 2001.

          In effect the IPC is run by US-based agribusiness giants including Cargill, Monsanto, Bunge, ADM, the very interests which benefit from the rules they drafted for WTO trade.

        Big storm headed to the Northeast. Who will the admin blame this time?

        • annieoakley says:

          Sorry WP put this down here. I was replying to your ‘This is the Plan’ and the northeast power grid.

      • Hew Manatee says:

        Gail, A lot of that makes sense except for Point #1. Depending of a black riot is way too risky — all they do is loot, pillage and burn their own neighborhoods. Not much strategic value in that, and is only part of the “divide and conquer” strategy. Think “Boston Marathon” as the model – they have proved that they can quite easily shut down a major city and keep people cowed in their own homes. All they need is the suitable “events” to enforce that approach – and it won’t be anything as messy as a race riot.

        • Gail Combs says:

          Hew, I was thinking of the riots in Egypt that were part of the ‘Arab Spring’

          The Arab Spring was a series of anti-government protests, uprisings and armed rebellions that spread across the Middle East in early 2011. But their purpose, relative success and outcome remain hotly disputed in Arab countries, among foreign observers, and between world powers looking to cash in on the changing map of the Middle East….

          The term “Arab Spring” was popularized by the Western media in early 2011, when the successful uprising in Tunisia against former leader Zine El Abidine Ben Ali emboldened similar anti-government protests in most Arab countries.

          The term was a reference to the turmoil in Eastern Europe in 1989, when seemingly impregnable Communist regimes began falling down under pressure from mass popular protests in a domino effect. In a short period of time, most countries in the former Communist bloc adopted democratic political systems with a market economy.

          But the events in the Middle East went in a less straightforward direction. Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen entered an uncertain transition period, Syria and Libya were drawn into a civil conflict, while the wealthy monarchies in the Persian Gulf remained largely unshaken by the events…..

          Remember these people really do not give a rats behind if American cities are destroyed since it will cost money to rebuild and the banksters get to loan out that money. After all the goal is to completely destroy the USA and especially the US Constitution with its gun rights and freedom of speech.

          As far as black riots go, do not forget that Al Sharpton and his buddies are quite capable of setting off coordinated riots in cities throughout the USA.

          …Sharpton’s radical racial activities go back much further, to his activities with Communist Party activists and violent revolutionaries and terrorists in the 1970s….

          as far back as 1971 Sharpton was supporting the Communist Party’s effort to aid terrorist Angela Davis, who later went on to run twice as the official candidate of the Communist Party USA for vice president of the United States. In 1971 Sharpton endorsed the Communist Party’s Free Angela Davis campaign. Moreover, he has worked closely over the years with communists and Marxist-Leninists, and radical racists such as William Kunstler, Sonny Carson, Ben Chavis, Khalid Muhammad, Malik Zulu Shabazz, Ron Kuby, Michael Ratner, Leslie Kagan, and many others….

          Why do NBC, MSNBC, Fox promote this Sociopath?

          Considering his toxic record and his cartoonish, buffoonish persona, Al Sharpton should be considered a pariah, a leper, whom no politician and no media organization would dare go near or quote. But Rev. Al leads a charmed life and serves a purpose for various powers that be; not only has he not paid a price for his despicable actions, he has actually prospered.

          In his Daily Beast article cited earlier, Stuart Stevens writes:

          There are a lot of angry, twisted individuals in America and Sharpton is hardly alone in having spent decades vomiting hate, leaving innocent victims in his wake. What distinguishes Sharpton is the willingness of powerful people and organizations to look past the hate when they believe it may benefit them.

          The Democratic Party and its candidates for president in 2004 were perfectly content to have Sharpton appear in presidential debates. Not one candidate called Sharpton out for his outrageous history of hate.

          And today one of the great American news organizations, NBC News, is spending millions of dollars to rehabilitate and promote Al Sharpton. Americans have been pretty good at sniffing out and discarding haters, but here is Al Sharpton on NBC and MSNBC being promoted as a credible source of information. Sharpton has gone from manipulating the news with vile accusations to delivering the news for NBC. When the Boston-bombing story broke, there was Al Sharpton delivering breaking news for MSNBC.

          Yes, the man who has set back race relations in America more than David Duke, the KKK, and the Aryan Nations combined, has been rewarded with his own network platform. He can be viewed daily on NBC’s Politics Nation with Al Sharpton, where he continues his attacks on conservatives, “white America,” Republicans, capitalism, and traditional morality, while promoting Big Government, gun control, homosexual marriage, and other pet hobby horses of the far-left agenda. But NBC is far from being Sharpton’s only media gig; he also has a regular blog on the Huffington Post and has replaced his friend and ally Jessie Jackson as the go-to “black leader” the MSM pundits shower with the most face time….

          Why are the movers and shakers promoting a vile person like Sharpton? Remember these are the direct heirs of the people who also funded and backed Lenin in his overthrow of Russia. link

  6. B Buckner says:

    Compare the fraudulent GISS temperature record to the snowfall record. The coldest periods in the early 20th century, a veritable ice age, produced well below average snowfall. Perhaps something is wrong with this temperature record.

  7. Gail Combs says:

    Look at that statement guys by a group that claims to be ‘Scientists’ NOT GREEN PEAS or SIERRA CLUBBED
    “Across the Northeast, from Pennsylvania and New Jersey northward to Maine, signs of our rapidly changing climate become clearer each year. Records show that spring is arriving sooner, summers are growing hotter, and winters are becoming warmer and less snowy…”

    Just the statement “winters are becoming warmer and less snowy” can easily be shown to be bogus.

    There has been a shift fto more snow in the fall and less snow in the spring. but that is reversing to more snow fall AND spring.

    But that less snow cover in late spring is showing a reversal in trend over the last four years.

    Also note the charts as usual start in the depths of the 1970s cold spell and even so the October snow fall has returned to the same as the 1970s cold times.

    An actual scientist would have looked at these easily checked statistics and been a lot more scrupulous in how he worded a statement about that data.

  8. sfx2020 says:

    In case you don’t already know. When snowfall increases, that’s also a sign of global warming. According to global warmers, warmer winters means more snow.

    Problem solved.
