“Red Hot Lies”

“How Global Warming Alarmists Use Threats, Fraud, and Deception to Keep You Misinformed”

From the Inside Flap

Liars–Al Gore, the United Nations, the New York Times. The global warming lobby, relentless in its push for bigger government, more spending, and more regulation, will use any means necessary to scare you out of your wits–as well as your tax dollars and your liberties–with threats of rising oceans, deadly droughts, and unspeakable future consequences of “climate change.” In pursuing their anti-energy, anti-capitalist, and pro-government agenda, the global warming alarmists–and unscrupulous scientists who see this scare as their gravy train to federal grants and foundation money–resort to dirty tricks, smear campaigns, and outright lies, abandoning scientific standards, journalistic integrity, and the old-fashioned notions of free speech and open debate. In Red Hot Lies, bestselling author Christopher Horner–himself the target of Greenpeace dirty tricks and alarmist smears–exposes the dark underbelly of the environmental movement. Power-hungry politicians blacklist scientists who reject global warming alarmism. U.S. senators threaten companies that fund climate change dissenters. Mainstream media outlets openly reject the notion of “balance.” The occasional unguarded scientist candidly admits the need to twist the facts to paint an uglier picture in order to keep the faucet of government money flowing. In the name of “saving the planet,” anything goes. But why the nasty tactics? Why the cover ups, lies, and intimidation? Because Al Gore and his ilk want to use big government at the local, state, federal, and global level to run your life, and they can brook no opposition. But the actual facts, as Red Hot Lies makes clear, aren’t nearly as scary as their fiction.

Say what?
Al Gore , May 9, 2006

“Nobody is interested in solutions if they don’t think there’s a problem. Given that starting point,I believe it is appropriate to have an over representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it [global warming] is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis.”

“This is treason. And we need to start treating them as traitors.”

Cold, Hard Facts

By INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY | Posted Monday, November 17, 2008 4:20 PM PT

Climate Change: Despite record snows and low temperatures around the world last month, a major Al Gore supporter says October was the hottest on record. The only thing being cooked here is not the Earth, but the books.

James Hansen, head of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies and global warming alarmist, is Al Gore’s favorite scientist, part of that mythical global warming “consensus” that says we are doomed and man is the culprit. On Nov. 10 he announced that last month was the hottest October on record and we were still doomed.

Dr. Hansen has not only become global warming’s Robin to Al Gore’s Batman, he has also been a critic of the “deniers,” those who dare to insist that the debate is far from over, and that the computer models used can’t even predict the past, much less the future.

Hansen has said in the past that “heads of major fossil-fuel companies who spread disinformation about global warming should be ‘tried for high crimes against humanity and nature.’ ” They pay for self-serving studies, and any scientist who disagrees with Gore is obviously on the take.

Christopher Booker, writing in the U.K. Telegraph, reports that Hansen apparently has been spreading disinformation all his own to come up with a conclusion that flies in the face of empirical evidence we can see with our own eyes.

Hansen’s claim of the hottest October ever came after reports of unseasonal snow and record low temperatures.

China’s official news agency reported that Tibet had suffered its “worst snowstorm ever.”

The Swiss lowlands last month got the most snow for any October since records began.

Zurich received 20 centimeters, breaking the record of 14 cm set in 1939. Ocala, Fla., experienced the second-lowest temperature recorded for October since 1850.

Elsewhere in the U.S., the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration registered 63 local snowfall records and 115 lowest-ever temperatures for the month, and ranked it as only the 70th warmest October in 114 years. So how did Hansen claim it was the warmest?

In Their Own Words – Policy
A select few

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.

– Timothy Wirth, former US Under Sec of State, current Head of the UN Foundation

No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.

– Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of the Environment

A New World Order is required to deal with the Climate Change crisis.

– Gordon Brown, British Prime Minister

The emerging ‘environmentalization’ of our civilization and the need for vigorous action in the interest of the entire global community will inevitably have multiple political consequences. Perhaps the most important of them will be a gradual change in the status of the United Nations. Inevitably, it must assume some aspects of a world government.

– Mikhail Gorbachev, Club of Rome member, State of the World Forum, 1996

Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?

– Maurice Strong, former Secretary General of UNEP

If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.

– Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, patron of the World Wildlife Fund

Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license. All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.

– David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club

    Nice article Velvet. Have you considered that because the global warming scam did not work plan b (global economic collapse) went into effect. Oil went through the roof, while the housing market and major banking institutions fell and the rise of the one to save us all. Toss in the 20 nation’s agreement and we have been violated on a global scale.

    I do think they went off game with the fuel and have decided to correct it, they need to show the ones plan working for a short while. The minions will forgive a lot if the have cheap fuel and the economy appears to be working. The real push will come after they get the pesky non main stream media (bloggers and free radio) under control.

    Cheers

    I posted this on my blog this morning: I’m still looking for that global warming Al Gore promised us. It’s 24 degrees here in Florida this morning. That’s a record for this date.
