More on scamming God's green earth; an open letter on the hoax
By Curtis Dahlgren

Dear Editor, Michigan Outdoor News:

ET TU, BRUTUS? I never thought I'd ever have to complain to an "outdoor" publication, but the Michigan Outdoor News (April 27, 2012) on page 12 featured "Climate Change; implications for habitats and big game." Have they never heard of East Anglia or what? Mr. Russ Mason says (my emphasis):

"Scientists of all stripes are convinced [global warming] is real . . .

"Changes in the climate over the next 100 years could lead to moose disappearing from Michigan . . .

"Waterfowl migration pulses would become less predictable and pathways could change . . . "

Mr. Mason then goes on to predict dogmatically that average temperatures in Michigan "will increase by at least 5 degrees Fahrenheit during the next 100 years."

BASED ON WHAT, EH? Computer models? As for those stupid things, U. of Wisconsin geoscience prof Anders Carlson said:

"All models are wrong. Some models are more wrong than others. They always have some missing pieces." — UW Alumni Assn. On Wisconsin (fall 2011)

"Future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century's developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree, and on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined with implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age." — Dr. Richard Lindzen, MIT prof of Atmospheric Sciences (back cover of Christopher Horner's book "The Politically Incorrect Guide (tm) to Global Warming and Environmentalism")

You can follow the money, and there are BIG BUCKS in "Deep ecology" (hip-boot DEEP). Even NASA is being "transformed" from exploring space into a social engineering agency!

"49 former NASA scientists, engineers, and astronauts fighting back re 'use' of NASA to promote climate change alarmism":

"[They]
accuse the agency of endangering 'the reputation of science itself' by advocating the 'extreme' position that carbon dioxide is the major cause of climate change. They want NASA to 'refrain from including unproven and unsupported remarks in its future releases' and contend that the claim 'that man-made carbon dioxide is having a catastrophic impact on global climate change is 'not substantiated.'" — Kevin DeAnna (www.wnd.com)

"The letter has done nothing to stop the efforts of NASA's most notorious global warming activist, James Hansen, director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, a division of NASA. The day after the letter was sent, Hansen stated in an interview with BBC Scotland that averting global warming was a 'great moral issue' equivalent to slavery. He called for a worldwide tax on carbon emissions and advocated a ban on the construction of coal-fired power plants.

"As Brian Sussman points out in his explosive new book "Eco-Tyranny," there is nothing new about these kinds of statements, as Hansen has a long history of extreme claims and advocacy on behalf of large-scale government regulation. For example, in May 2011, Hansen advocated redistribution of wealth by placing a 'flat rising fee on carbon' with the objective of 'affect[ing] consumers and chang[ing] lifestyles.' People with lavish lifestyles will pay more in increased energy costs ... " — ibid

FOLLOW THE ("GREEN") MONEY OF THE IVY LEAGUE -

"When the founding fathers of the New York Stock Exchange gathered . . . they never could have imagined . . . Google or Apple or General Electric.

"Today another global market is being born, with a cadre of visionaries at its core. These founders, women as well as men, with a healthy proportion coming from a single academic institution, Yale University — realize exactly the scale of what they're trying to do: They hope to save the planet.

"Staff writer Anya Kamenetz, herself a Yale grad, went out to San Francisco [in 2008] to cover a conference on the nascent carbon-credit market . . . [She] was struck not just by the amount of money involved — the U.S. carbon market alone is projected to reach $1 trillion by 2020 — but also by the preponderance of fellow Yale alumni. The university's School of Forestry & Environment Studies, she learned, now has a center for Business and the Environment; graduates are less interested in being forest rangers than power brokers using the markets to solve an [alleged] environmental crisis.

"The problem, as Karmenetz reports in 'Carbon Boom,' is that the notion that a carbon market can save the planet is unproven. Almost none of the accomplished, intellectual eco-pioneers she spoke with are quite convinced carbon trading will curb global warming.

"Yet that has not slowed the momentum of this market, as people line up to get their share of what is already a lucrative money machine. The only surefire greening is of personal bank accounts and corporate-income statements.

"The eco-Yalies do agree that carbon markets are the best hope for a
global community that is fractured and without leadership. But if that hope proves to be a mirage, both time and resources wisll have been wasted.

"And some of the best minds of a generation may be polluted by greed in the process."
— Robert Safian, editor FAST COMPANY magazine, July/Aug 2008 (my emphasis)

Is the main goal to lower the seas and cool the world, or to make fortunes (there's a fee charged for every "carbon trade" you know)? Or, also quite possible, is the main goal of this whole hoax to help bring about a "global community" — the New World Order?

The ecology organization "Friends of the Earth" admitted to me in writing that "most environmentalists are socialists" (i.e., socialists first — if you read between the lines — socialists who will use any "crisis" real or imaginary as the best hope for a global community that is "fractured and without leadership." Many people have concluded that environmentalism is the new home of the Communists.

P.S. Note to Michigan Outdoor News: please tell Mr. Mason not to worry about all those "computer models" on global warming. Up here in the Upper Peninsula, we're ROOTING FOR IT!
