TEMPE, Ariz. — Man-made “global warming” is a fantastic fable that needs to debunked. That’s the general outlook of scientists, academics, journalists and other researchers who convened for the third congress of Freedom Force International (FFI), which ran Dec. 2-4 at the Marriot-Tempe “on the Buttes” resort hotel near Phoenix. The event was named, “Global Warming: An Inconvenient Lie.”
It offered a staggeringly different narrative on “global warming” and “climate change” compared to the harrowing themes peddled in our “learning” institutions and in the orthodox press, as this writer heard covering several conference speeches and live streaming video news segments with participants that can be viewed at: https://livestream.com/ronavery/global-warming-congress.
FFI, led by widely respected Federal Reserve investigator-author G. Edward Griffin, welcomed an array of speakers to Tempe. They explored “global warming” from several angles, including the “mainstream” media’s intensely biased stance, as well as the role played by K-12 education, the scientific community, general academia, governments, the United Nations, etc.
This writer covered the FFI event for American Free Press.
All these institutions recite the same anti-human narrative that people are a blight who are arrogantly warming the earth through the routine release of carbon dioxide and other “greenhouse gases” via industrial, agricultural and other emissions.
And we’re constantly told that, lest we mend our ways very quickly, we’re all supposedly in mortal peril from this perceived global warming, amid claims of melting ice sheets, rising ocean waters, droughts, flooding, starvation, riots, water wars, etc.
The FFI conference offered credible evidence to the contrary—even including the topic of geo-engineering and weather modification—thereby adding a new, compelling dimension to the climate issue.
All told, FFI members and guests felt their conference was successful in adding much-needed balance to the debate, via realistic perspectives which show that what little “global warming” may exist is not caused by man-made industrial and agricultural emissions, but instead is caused by solar variation and other factors.
Plus, modest carbon dioxide atmospheric increases, conference participants agreed, can be seen as a largely positive thing since CO2 is the “gas of life.”
Accordingly, CO2 increases would give rise to more lush vegetation and greater food supplies. That challenges the standard fright-peddling narrative that global warming is not only being caused by man-made emissions, but also that CO2 is a virtual “toxin.”
Mathematician Lord Christopher Monckton of the UK told The TRUTH HOUND, on hand reporting on the conference for American Free Press, that flawed math is being used in conjunction with computer-based climate models. That, he said, results in exaggerated predictions of global temperature increases.
Expounding on the outlook of the establishment scientific community that insists without apparent dissent that man-made global warming is real, Monckton in a Dec. 2 video interview (among the videos in the Livestream link above) noted, “They’ve exaggerated the amount of warming” but they’ve also “exaggerated the degree of consensus.”
That remark on the amount of consensus relates to what Monckton and several other FFI conference participants pinpointed as a vulnerable linchpin to the whole global warming claim: The allegation, peddled as immovable fact by establishment scientists and conventional media, that “97%” of scientists believe global warming is caused by humankind’s automotive, industrial and farm emissions—among other emissions, even including cattle flatulence.
The reason the “97%” claim is highly misleading, Monckton and other FFI participants noted, is that it’s based on fewer than 100 of nearly 12,000 peer-reviewed scientific papers on climate change. So, saying that 97% of less than 1% of all these studies support the global warming narrative, while making it sound like 97% of the 12,000 studies support it, is a gross distortion.
Monckton went on to say in his interview with this writer that there also has been an exaggeration of the economics regarding global warming (the supposed need to increase taxes and regulations to mitigate the effects of burning so-called fossil fuels).
“But particularly,” Monckton continued, “they’ve made a mistake on the physics and the math,” which he said results in inflated forecasts of temperature increases “of up to 12 degrees Celsius per doubling of CO2.” However, if the flawed math is corrected, he added, “We can say that it won’t be more than 2.7 degrees C per doubling of CO2, and that’s the high end.”
He further clarified that an increase of 1.6 degrees C, or even 0.7, per CO2 doubling, is more realistic in terms of possible warming, when the correct math is applied.
Other FFI conference highlights included:
- Reporter Alex Newman, who said that distortion forms the basis of the corporate media’s totally one-sided view on this issue, even while news reports are replete with references to climate skeptics as mindless “climate deniers” whose very existence doesn’t deserve acknowledgement.
- The fact that John Holdren, a retread from the “global cooling” scare stories in the 1970s-80s, has reemerged as President Obama’s “science czar.” The old stories that up to 1 billion could die from global cooling have given way to Holdren’s calls for forced abortions, even while various climate gurus pursue draconian depopulation directives to combat “global warming,” because, to them, fewer people leaving “carbon footprints” equals a “healthier” world.
- Stark contradictions, such as a May 2014 LA Times report, “Irreversible Collapse of Antarctic Glaciers Has Begun,” even while NASA cited “record amounts of sea ice.” Then, in May 2015, the UN Foundation and mainstream media partners formed a “news collective” to advance the “correct” climate narrative. But behind the scenes, as Newman showed, a Senate report documents a “billionaires club” that underpins the “green” movement via Rockefeller funds, etc.
An outgrowth of all this is that nearly all media reports call CO2 “pollution” when, in reality, “Human emissions are less than 1% of all greenhouse gases in the atmosphere,” and CO2 is but one component of those gases, as Newman explained. Therefore, the real purveyors of “fake news” are so-called “mainstream” outlets.
Also, Canadian Professor Tim Ball announced to FFI that, soon after the conference, he was to meet with President-Elect Donald Trump’s people to discuss the climate change issue and pursue more realistic policies. This news was well received and fits into Griffin’s mission to have FFI be a true, active “force” for constructive policy changes.
And among other compelling speakers, independent researcher Jim Lee awed many when, backed by memoranda, news clippings and declassified documents, he showed there’s been 100 years of earnest efforts to manipulate the weather, though not always for nefarious reasons.
His www.climateviewer.com website (also www.climateviewer.org) cover considerable ground in documenting and explaining the established know-how to create, intensify and influence the path of rain storms and much more powerful storm movements.
One, among several, conclusions is that anomalies in the world’s climate (extended droughts in the West amid massive, unexpected dumps of rain elsewhere etc.) can be traced to various phenomena including geo-engineering and weather manipulation, but weather gyrations are equated with the common global warming narrative to present a false picture to the public. It’s highly recommended that the reader view this interview by The TRUTH HOUND with Mr. Lee here: https://livestream.com/ronavery/global-warming-congress/videos/143406499
