The notion of the Climate Change Hoax has recently been promoted by President Donald Trump when he was president -Elect. He is joined by conservative politicians around the world, business leaders tied to the fossil fuel industry, and conservatives generally both in the USA and other Western nations.
This is despite the fact that the evidence presented to date shows that climate change is indeed not a hoax and in fact one of the greatest threats to humans today. The question is.... Can we really trust this data? Who has written the reports and what were they paid?
Climate Change Science & Propaganda, Michael Nelson- 2015
This article addresses the relationship between science and propaganda using the Climate Change controversy as a study model. The United Nations International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the recognized leader on this model issuing multiple Assessment Reports. This review begins with a discussion of the basics—what is propaganda and how does it work, followed by whether the IPCC adopted or rejected it. Next explored is how propaganda can be seamlessly fused into “report writing” in a way that arouses and makes interesting humdrum details. Some unexpected results emerged from current and historical observation data involving the Greenhouse theory, CO2 sources, ocean pH, sea levels, and ice balances. The final section confronts whether “a point of view” constrains objectivity in favor of outcome. The overall conclusion is that the earth is boringly healthy." - International Journal of Geosciences, DOI - 10.4236/ijg.2015.612105 Download and read full article here.
The first iron rule of American politics is: Follow the money. This explains, oh, about 80 percent of what goes on in Washington.
Steven Mooore (2018) Writes, "Shortly after the latest Chicken Little climate change report was published last month, I noted on CNN that one reason so many hundreds of scientists are persuaded that the sky is falling is that they are paid handsomely to do so.
I noted that “In America and around the globe governments have created a multi-billion dollar Climate Change Industrial Complex.” And then I added: “A lot of people are getting really, really rich off of the climate change industry.” According to a recent report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office, “Federal funding for climate change research, technology, international assistance, and adaptation has increased from $2.4 billion in 1993 to $11.6 billion in 2014, with an additional $26.1 billion for climate change programs and activities provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009.”

What do you think? Is Climate change real... or are we being bullied into paying carbon taxes and other relief taxes to fund just another money grab by the worlds elite?
