……No matter how we look at issues, global warming is a very profitable enterprise driven by environmental political advocacy. Some droughts in the U.S. are man-made, caused by Democrat-controlled water use policies. “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 few days ago I realized that we who are participating on the Agenda 21 thread have amassed an impressive amount of data and links which are quite important for the educating of anyone who is wondering what “Agenda 21” is all about.

(See Reader Responses…) ~ Administration’s New Climate Report: Next Ice Age ‘Has Now Been Delayed Indefinitely’
(CNSNews.com) – A federal advisory committee
appointed by the Obama administration to produce a report on climate change says that if Earth’s climate were still “primarily controlled by natural factors”—rather than by man-made global warming—then the next ice age would occur within the next 1,500 years.
But now, because of humans, the committee says, the next ice age has been “delayed indefinitely.”
“Confirmation of what are called Milankovich cycles (cyclical changes in the Earth’s orbit that explain the onset and ending of ice ages) led a few scientists in the 1970s to suggest that the current warm interglacial period might be ending soon, plunging the Earth into a new ice age over the next few centuries,” the advisory committee said in a draft report released last month.

We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms.
The first sentence is a blatant untruth. Concerted global action so far to deal with the threat of climate change has resulted in: higher energy prices; more deaths from fuel poverty; more intrusive regulation; the destruction of rainforests and the squandering of agricultural land on biofuels; higher food prices; famine and food riots – as a result partly of the drive for biofuels; the entrenchment of corporatism and rent-seeking to the detriment of free markets; the ravaging of the countryside with ugly solar farms and even uglier wind turbines; the deaths of millions of birds and bats; the great recession. How any of this has in any way benefited either our children (who are going to find it far harder to find a job) or future generations is a complete mystery.

The residents of California are about to become victims of what Weather Channel founder John Coleman has accurately called “the greatest scam in history”. They will be paying higher energy bills to help carbon traders get richer.
In the 1990’s the corrupt Enron company began paying scientists and purported environmental groups to support the outright lie that slight increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide could increase atmospheric temperatures. Enron also supported politicians who were willing to go along with this scheme. Enron’s goal was to get governments to establish a system for trading what the company called “carbon credits“.
Companies producing carbon dioxide have to pay for “carbon credits” to do so . These carbon credits can then be traded by speculators just like stocks and bonds. More on Enron and carbon trading later.

Over the past several years I have ripped former Vice President Al Gore for his far, far left rambles and rants on what he once called ‘Global Warming’ but now refers to as ‘Climate Change’.
Remember when global warming was called global warming? You know: back in 2001, before a decade elapsed in which there was no measurable global warming.
It’s not called global warming any longer. That was just too embarrassing, because there hasn’t any global warming for a decade. This stable temperature has taken place, despite the fact that worldwide emissions of carbon dioxide are higher.
The same secretive organization that admittedly manufactured the global warming threat in 1990 is still pushing the same hoax today, with the Club of Rome issuing an alarmist report predicting a catastrophic rise in temperatures that will decimate the planet.
Group That Admitted Manufacturing Global Warming Threat Still Pushes Same Hoax planet earth 2735
“Rising carbon dioxide emissions will cause a global average temperature rise of 2 degrees Celsius by 2052 and a 2.8 degree rise by 2080, as governments and markets are unlikely to do enough against climate change, the Club of Rome think tank said,” reports Reuters.
The report, entitled, 2052: A Global Forecast for the Next Forty Years, decries improving living standards in developing countries and warns that man-made climate change could eventually kill off humans entirely.
“Let’s start keeping track of them…let’s make them pay”
Writing for Forbes Magazine, climate change alarmist Steve Zwick calls for skeptics of man-made global warming to be tracked, hunted down and have their homes burned to the ground, yet another shocking illustration of how eco-fascism is rife within the environmentalist lobby.

The climate change professor at the center of the scandal over her assertion that global warming skeptics were akin to racists and should be “treated” for having a psychiatric disorder wrote a letter in which she praised Barack Obama for hiring eugenicist John P. Holdren as his chief science advisor, while also urging Obama to ignore public opinion and disregard democracy in favor of enforcing draconian climate change mandates.
Following University of Oregon Professor Kari Norgaard’s presentation of a discussion document at the recent Planet Under Pressure conference, in which she called for global warming skeptics to be viewed as racists who need to be “treated” for mental disorders, every academic establishment associated with her has attempted to memory hole information concerning Norgaard’s biography and her previous work.
Bringing the issue back full circle to the idea of ‘carbon footprints,’ Gates has publicly advocated that vaccines be used to lower population in order to reduce CO2 emissions, a task that could only be accomplished if such immunizations are used to sterilize people against their will.
The notion that people should be denied vital services and punished for not reducing their “carbon footprint” is a wet dream for climate change alarmist control freaks who have hijacked the environmental movement in their bid to create a tightly regulated society controlled by a ruthless technocracy.

I realize you can’t judge a book by its cover, but — oh, my.
A whole slew of new “research” on conservatives’ and global warming skeptics’ “brains” has hit the academic circuit.
First off, environment and sociology Prof. Kari Norgaard’s [Ed: pictured at right] new study claims skeptics of man-made global warming fears should be “treated” for their skepticism. The study compares skepticism to man-made climate fears to the struggle against racism and slavery.
Prof. Norgaard’s concept of “treating” those who do not follow the current day’s political or social orthodoxy is, frighteningly, not new. A quick look at the 20th century totalitarian super states reveals many similar impulses.
It’s even more chilling that there is a whole new movement afoot by the promoters of man-made global warming theory to intimidate climate skeptics by using new brain “research.”
I have been a named columnist here at VT almost a full year, and this is the first time I’ve entered the “global warming” fray.
Although I read the sensational stuff at Climate Depot almost daily, and my personal views on carbon controversy say the manmade part is only hype for the market makers who screwed us over already, several times.
The sky is falling… sort of. Over the last 10 years, the height of clouds has been shrinking, according to new research.
The time frame is short, but if future observations show that clouds are truly getting lower, it could have an important effect on global climate change. Clouds that are lower in the atmosphere would allow Earth to cool more efficiently, potentially offsetting some of the warming caused by greenhouse gases.
The Obama administration announced without congressional approval Thursday that it was forming a new international coalition overseen by the United Nations, supposedly in an effort to fight “climate change” by regulating certain types of emissions. Dubbed the “Climate and Clean Air Coalition,” the emerging alliance includes the governments ruling Mexico, Bangladesh, Canada, Sweden, and Ghana.
The February 16 announcement was made in Washington, D.C. by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who claimed Benjamin Franklin would somehow be “pleased” about the developments. An assortment of so-called “Environmental Ministers” from other countries, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency EPA boss Lisa Jackson, and UN Environment Program UNEP chief Achim Steiner were also present.UNEP boss Steiner, who will help oversee the daily operations of the new “coalition,” also invoked Franklin — an ardent supporter of liberty — to justify the statist policies being pursued.
Microsoft founder Bill Gates continues to pour millions of dollars into high-risk geoengineering projects that purport to offer a solution to global warming yet have been savaged by environmentalists as potentially posing a greater threat than climate change itself.Bill Gates Pours Millions Into Geoengineering bill gates“Concern is now growing that the small but influential group of scientists, and their backers, may have a disproportionate effect on major decisions about geoengineering research and policy,” reports the London Guardian, quoting critics who allege that Gates’ funding has enabled geoengineering advocates to “dominate the deliberations of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.”In 2010, Gates was criticized for ploughing $300,000 dollars into a sea trial of cloud-whitening technology which involved spraying clouds with microscopic particles in an effort to make them reflect more sunlight, an experiment dubbed “dangerous” by environmental campaigners.The report reveals that Gates has backed Professors David Keith, of Harvard University, and Ken Caldeira of Stanford, to the tune of $4.6 million dollars to fund studies based around the premise of injecting sulphur particles into the upper atmosphere designed to reflect sunlight.
As reported exclusively by WND’s Aaron Klein, friends of the Obama administration are trying to sneak the now-defunct “Fairness Doctrine” back into law, disguised as – of all things – an action project on “climate change.”
In a recent report called “Building the Obama Administration’s Climate Legacy,” the Presidential Climate Action Project, or PCAP, recommends reinstating the “Fairness Doctrine,” the old FCC rule that kept conservative talk radio off the airwaves until the ruling was struck down during the Reagan administration……
Anthony WileBy now, people who use the Internet seriously, and even plenty who don’t, are aware of the arrest of six-foot-seven, 300-pound Kim Dotcom, an outsize figure in the business of facilitating Internet downloads.The problem with his company, Megauploads, according to the US Justice Department and the FBI that carried out the arrest, is that his brainchild allowed users to traffic in “stolen” – copyrighted – entertainment on which no royalties had been paid.In this article, I’ll comment on the arrest of Kim Dotcom and try to show how this one action is actually the beginning of an entirely new phase of what we may call the Internet Wars.I’m not the first to notice this. As Kurt Nimmo and Alex Jones, of Infowars fame, pointed out in an article posted today entitled “The Great Internet Wars Have Begun,” we wake up to an entirely new Internet era this weekend.Yes, a war has been joined and human history shall never be the same. For one thing, the outcome is NOT certain – and the power elite that seeks to control and constrain the Internet may yet end up taking a step back – at least in these early rounds, anyway.For another, the directed history that the Anglosphere power elite has been so clever at inculcating over the past century is gradually fading away. That’s perhaps an even more important point. The Dotcom arrest actually reinforces this observation, as I’ll try to show in a moment.There is no doubt, in my view, that the elites practiced directed history in the 20th century, setting up wars and economic catastrophes designed to consolidate world government. But in the 21st century, with so many understanding and evaluating the mechanisms of the elites, this is a considerably harder trick to pull off.The elites actually have a limited playbook when it comes to influencing the larger society, though that is not intended to downplay its power. The elites use what we call dominant social themes – fear-based promotions – that are designed to frighten middle classes into giving up wealth and power to specially prepared globalist institutions like the UN, IMF, etc.The other “tools” in the toolkit include war and a pervasive societal matrix of sociopolitical, economic, religious and military elements. The matrix itself was seamless in the late 20th century – for most Western citizens anyway – and allowed the power elite to advance its fear-based promotions without fear of contradiction.Say, for instance, the elites wanted to promote global warming – in order to create a kind of “carbon currency” that they could control and trade at will. In order to do this, the elites would have to proclaim the threat, back it up with scientific studies and then legislate a response to the supposed threat.This is something that actually took place. The Anglosphere elites used their control of the scientific establishment to proclaim a phony hypothesis and then planted specially placed “scientists” at critical choke points to further control the dialogue.It turns out that it doesn’t take very many people to control a given conversation or promote a certain campaign. In this case, by generating a cadre of global warming sycophants and putting them in charge of one of only a few “global warming” scientific journals, the elites could virtually create a scientific consensus where none existed.Once the elites had manufactured a phony global warming meme via “peer approved” articles in complaisant journals, the elite-controlled media was turned loose to trumpet the supposed findings. And once the articles were written, elite-controlled UN agencies created white papers from them that could be used as calls-for-action.These white papers were in turn picked up by elite-funded NGOs that began to foment full-fledged socio-political campaigns to “crack down” on global warming “polluters.” Vast UN conferences filled by elite-proxies hand-picked politicians were organized as well to agitate for worldwide legislation to “control” global warming…..
I have been asked a series of very interesting, important and challenging questions by a loyal reader of LewRockwell.com who will remain anonymous. My thought is that these queries of his, and my responses to them, might prove to be of interest to the general readership of this web site. My answers follow these marks << and are in italics.
He begins here:The problem I have is Global Warming.Let’s ignore any scientific debate and just accept, for the sake of the argument, that emissions of carbon dioxide cause changes to the climate and those changes cause things like rising sea levels that damage property and could potentially lead to the extinction of mankind on the Earth.<< Ok. I’ll try to deal with this contrary to fact conditional, at least arguendo.I have read your essay “Environmentalism and Economic Freedom: The Case For Private Property Rights”<< Bless you, bless you. Those are the sweetest words an author can read. Here is the full cite on that publication, Block, Walter E. 1998. “Environmentalism and Economic Freedom: The Case for Private Property Rights,” Journal of Business Ethics, Vol. 17, No. 6, December, pp. 1887-1899, which can be found here or here.I can see that if I were emitting a pollutant that caused damage to the property of another the case is quite clearly an invasion of property rights and easily dealt with.<< Yes, yes, that is basic libertarian theory regarding trespass.I am not so sure about carbon dioxide. Clearly this is not a pollutant per se and does not cause any direct damage to property. If emitting carbon dioxide onto another’s land was an invasion of property rights then surely we would all have to stop breathing…..

Never mind where you might stand on the question of global warming, global cooling, climate change or plain old weather. If there’s one constant to this entire climate debate, it is that in the name of “climate,” the United Nations wishes to regulate and tax the economy of the planet — stripping resources from the most productive economies to hand them out as assorted UN bureaucrats deem fit.
This is an agenda for global central planning — which, at the extreme, is what the Soviet Union envisioned as the radiant future of mankind, at least until the USSR itself collapsed as a basket case of monstrously misallocated resources, pervaded by the nightmare repression required to enforce such a system. Nonetheless, at the UN this agenda keeps coming up, year after year, at one climate conference after another. The proclamations of emergency have varied, but always, in the middle of it, there is the UN, proposing to serve as planner and traffic cop for global commerce — a role that entails the UN aiming to redirect resources and collecting a cut to cover the administrative enterprises of its own neo-colonial empire of agencies, organizations, intergovernmental outfits, programs and special envoys. Somehow that already includes a need for climate conferees to travel great distances at other people’s expense, with UN officials touching down from business class long-haul flights to spend a week, or maybe two, conferring at luxury hotels in locations such as Rio, Copenhagen, Cancun and Bali.

I just got a nauseating email release from The Daily Climate that said:
DailyClimate.org is pleased to offer two opinion pieces by notable climate scientists commenting on the recent release of the climate science emails.
Get a load of this headline:
Opinion: Snippets of stolen emails cannot make the Earth flat
Wow, make the earth flat? That has to be some sort award winning headline for the most stupid strawman argument ever. But then, look who is writing it –Supermandia
The first paragraph sets the nauseating tone:
Here is what we know: The Earth is round, smoking is linked to lung cancer, and humans are changing the climate by emitting massive amounts of heat-trapping carbon dioxide and other gases. Like extra blankets at night, those emissions are warming the planet. The physics of greenhouse gases has been understood for more than 100 years. It is not new science.
[Update: Hmmm, commenter John-X points out this reference from Mike Mann's PSU meteorology dept (shown below) which really throws a wet blanket on that statement.]
Supermandia and the most supersilly Climategate rebuttal ever bumpO Does the atmosphere (or any greenhouse gas) act a blanket?
At best, the reference to a blanket is a bad metaphor. Blankets act primarily to suppress convection; the atmosphere acts to enable convection. To claim that the atmosphere acts a blanket, is to admit that you don’t know how either one of them operates.
Of course, the rest of this is just a BS strawman argument, most skeptics (and certainly no skeptical scientists) don’t dispute the greenhouse effect, only the magnitude of the effect and confounding factors such as feedbacks and sensitivity.
UN chief says it’s time to cough up climate cash

DHAKA, Nov 14 (Reuters) – United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Monday urged governments in rich nations to work around troubled economic times and scale up donations to a global climate change fund that is at risk of becoming an “empty shell”.
The world’s poorest nations are particularly vulnerable to rising sea levels, more extremes of droughts and floods and say rich nations should help them with cash to try to adapt.
Nearly 200 nations agreed at major climate talks last year in Cancun, Mexico, to raise $100 billion annually from 2020 to help poor nations fight climate change. The money would be managed by a Green Climate Fund.
People understand that Congress is unspeakably corrupt. Many also understand that our “news” media suppress and distort the news; that our public schools and colleges make their students dumber instead of smarter; or even that certain churches train their congregations more in the way of worldliness than godliness.
Thanks to Science we have learned to believe in some of the most preposterous and malignant notions ever dreamed up in this poor, sin-laden world. We believe, for instance, in Evolution, or in Man-made Global Warming—because we are told, over and over and over again, that we must believe in it.
“I don’t think there were any newspaper articles about it or anything like that,” the author recalls.
But the headline on the 1975 report was bold: “Are We on the Brink of a Pronounced Global Warming?” And this article that coined the term may have marked the last time a mention of “global warming” didn’t set off an instant outcry of angry denial.—
EDITOR’S NOTE: Climate change has already provoked debate in a U.S. presidential campaign barely begun. An Associated Press journalist draws on decades of climate reporting to offer a retrospective and analysis on global warming and the undying urge to deny.—
In the paper, Columbia University geoscientist Wally Broecker calculated how much carbon dioxide would accumulate in the atmosphere in the coming 35 years, and how temperatures consequently would rise. His numbers have proven almost dead-on correct. Meanwhile, other powerful evidence poured in over those decades, showing the “greenhouse effect” is real and is happening. And yet resistance to the idea among many in the U.S. appears to have hardened.
What’s going on?
“The desire to disbelieve deepens as the scale of the threat grows,” concludes economist-ethicist Clive Hamilton.
He and others who track what they call “denialism” find that its nature is changing in America, last redoubt of climate naysayers. It has taken on a more partisan, ideological tone. Polls find a widening Republican-Democratic gap on climate. Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry even accuses climate scientists of lying for money. Global warming looms as a debatable question in yet another U.S. election campaign.

So, fellas! So, ladies! Do you want cheap gas and big, safe rides? Then, drill. Drill. Drill a healthy life.
Think about the last time you moved, went camping or took your boat to the lake. Did you wish you drove a Smart car? Or, did you wish your ride were bigger?
When it comes to cars, big is better. Bigger cars are safer. They haul more people and things. They typically ride higher—providing the driver with a better view. And, they are more comfortable (tall people can drive them without needing a chiropractor’s alignment.)
On the flip side, bigger vehicles use more gas and allegedly hurt the environment. So, let’s solve these two challenges.
Gas prices will go down when oil is plentiful and there is certainty in the marketplace. So, we should promptly drill for oil.
Well, environmentalists are behind the times. Liberal politicians and the Obama administration admit climate change is a flawed theory by failing to offer realistic “alternative” energy plans and by avoiding climate change as a selling point for new energy policies.

Historically there is a single group of people who can not decide what to call themselves. Depending on circumstances of the day they have tried socialist, progressive, liberal, community organizer, and one popular in the early 1900s through the great depression, WWII, and 1950s, communist.
With each new branding came a new grandiose name for their singular purpose, that is, to control the lives and think for all those too stupid folks incapable of any meaningful thought. Would you be at all surprised to learn that anyone not accepted within their circle of intelligentsia is relegated to that of morons who cling to religion and their guns?
More to the point of naming those within their anointed group, Denier(s), is some consideration of their fascination with denying, i.e., lying about everything they say and do. A United States fourteen (14) trillion dollar debt is not a national catastrophe, easily overcome by additional spending, Sovereign States have no right protecting their citizens from death and mayhem inflicted by illegal aliens, voter fraud does not exist, killing unborn citizens by any diabolical method is not undesirable, that the despicably crippled educational public school system they established is perfectly fine for all the morons (but not their own), that all it requires is more money, and the Constitution is nothing more than a piece of paper devised by a group of dead men with no force or meaning in the new world order.

NASA has been warning about it…scientific papers have been written about it…geologists have seen its traces in rock strata and ice core samples…Now “it” is here: an unstoppable magnetic pole shift that has sped up and is causing life-threatening havoc with the world’s weather.Forget about global warming—man-made or natural—what drives planetary weather patterns is the climate and what drives the climate is the sun’s magnetosphere and its electromagnetic interaction with a planet’s own magnetic field.
An influential professor who worked as an assessor for the United Nations IPCC has called for democracy to be replaced with an eco-dictatorship where enslaved masses are ruled over by an “elite warrior leadership” and…

Here are a few brief comments about a lady so puffed up with her own importance that if someone ever stuck a pin in her she’d explode and pollute the earth with more global warming gases than the fake scientists could ever fictionalize about.
UNITED NATIONS AFP – A top UN panel on Friday called for increased taxes on carbon emissions and air and sea transport to raise 100 billion dollars a year to combat climate change.The group led by the prime ministers of Norway and Ethiopia also proposed a tax on international financial transactions for a fund to help poorer nations counter the impact of the warming planet.
The radical proposals will be sent to all governments and get a first international airing at the next UN climate conference in Cancun, Mexico starting at the end of the month.The report “contains financing options that are both financially feasible and politically viable,” said UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. “This is not about charity. It is about doing the right thing for those who are suffering most from a crisis that they did least to cause.”

Take heart, American Patriots everywhere! Figurative bells began ringing out from the bellwether City of Toronto last night, sounding the clarion call: “Progressives beware!”
For the first time that anybody could remember the penny-pinching, small c conservative Councillor Rob Ford is now Toronto mayor.
Toronto has long been Canada’s center of progressive politics and far left activists had come to regard it as a lock-down state.
“Gravy train” of graft, corruption, bribes, and becoming a wealthy, career government leader with power; it must end or the country will
It’s Term Limits or Certain Slow Death for America

Most, if not all, the grief, antagonism, misconduct, lies, corruption, cheating, intimidation, bribery, and other ailments short of hang-nails and diarrhea on the political scene here in our country can be solved by doing just ONE thing: Pass TERM LIMITS.
Obama may be losing the War on Terror, but his War on the Economy is headed full speed ahead
The Left’s War on the Economy
By Daniel Greenfield Full Story
Obama may be losing the War on Terror, but his War on the Economy is headed full speed ahead. The joblessness, the unemployment rolls and an economic in which the only people still making money are in the government, in public sector unions or on Wall Street is no accident. It was the intended result all along.
What Obama and the Democrats miscalculated is the mobilization of populist opposition and the speed with which the public turned to the Republicans for solutions, instead of treating Obama as the Great Savior for extending their unemployment benefits.

The state of Delaware does not have a monopoly on witches. San Francisco, Alaska, and Florida, among other localities, are all well represented by women of both parties who abuse the ‘privilege’ of being a witch. The state of Kansas has contributed to the coven, with former Governor Sebelius heading up our nation’s Stealth-Care system.

By Tom Harris and Bryan Leyland Full Story

Globe and Mail’s ‘Fat Bo’y Wins
A new wind blowing
By Klaus Rohrich Full Story
Bob Dylan famously (and off key) sang, “the answer my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, the answer is blowin’ in the wind.” It’s no longer blowin’ in the wind; it IS the wind and the wind has ushered in a new era in, as the Toronto Sun’s Sue-Anne Levy likes to call, Toronto’s Socialist Silly Hall. Those sleepy hog town burgers have finally opened their eyes and realized that there was life beyond social democracy and those who paid the piper were entitled to call the tune.
While it wasn’t a clean Sweep through City Hall, eliminating the socialist elite altogether, it was a good start and a promise of a brighter future for taxpayers who had realized that David Miller’s brand of governance was for the benefit of his own leftist ideological allies like public sector unions and not for the benefit of the people who footed the bill for Miller’s largesse.

Time To Hold Environmental And Climate Doomsayers To Account
By Dr. Tim Ball Full Story
The 1990 Greenpeace Report on Global Warming said, carbon dioxide is added to the atmosphere naturally and unnaturally. They define unnatural as anything humans do. It is part of the theme of environmentalism that humans shouldn’t be here or tolerated only if they behave as they are told. The other part of the idea of unnatural is exploited to keep the people enthralled, fearful and therefore controlled. H.L.Mencken’s comment that, “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary” applies and is proof of the political nature of events presented, directly or with implication, as unnatural.
