In his Earth Day speech at Seattle’s Seward Park, President Joe Biden boasted about his association with Earth Day founders, stating, “They had a vision, a vision for a healthier, more prosperous America.”
But Biden’s ignorance of basic science has resulted in him boosting priorities that will result in a less healthy, less prosperous, and less secure America. This is because he has bought, hook, line, and sinker, into the nonsense science backing the climate scare and now prioritizes climate change over virtually everything else. In particular, the president told his Earth Day audience in Seattle that he is:
Like Biden’s mathematically-challenged assertions that he was seven years old on the first Earth Day in 1970 and “there used to be a hell of a lot more forests like this” (the U.S. Forest Service shows that forest area in the U.S. has been stable since 1900), all of the above bullet points are misguided as well. Joe said in his Earth Day video that he has “listened to the science.” That is exactly what the president has not done. It is high time that he learned what real experts who study the causes of climate change are actually saying.
“Americans should not be stampeded into a disastrous climate crusade,” wrote Dr. William Happer, Cyrus Fogg Brackett Professor Emeritus of physics at Princeton University, and Dr. Richard Lindzen, Emeritus of atmospheric sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Happer and Lindzen are arguably the most prominent scientists battling climate change fraud around the world.
By obligating the United States once more to the Paris Agreement and by signaling clearly that “climate” will be central to its policies, the Biden administration has joined other governments in the crusade against a supposed “climate emergency.” Happer and Lindzen used the word “crusade” advisedly since the frenzy over climate resembles the medieval crusades against foreign infidels and home-grown heretics.
The one-world socialists trying to defeat capitalism and modern society have even launched a children’s climate crusade.
Medieval crusaders chanted, “God wants it.” The leaders of medieval Europe did not resist the temptation to join the crusades. Thus, the “enemies of God” paid with their lives.
Some of today’s climate crusaders have invoked the mandate of God, but most claim to be following a mandate of their version of climate science, which we know to actually contain no supportable science at all.
Happer and Lindzen can attest that the research literature does not support the claim of a climate emergency. None of the predictions of accelerating sea-level rise, increasingly extreme weather, more deadly forest fires, droughts and floods, food shortages, and unprecedented warming are any more accurate than, as Happer and Lindzen say, “the fire-and-brimstone sermons used to stoke fanaticism in medieval crusaders.”
Those promoting this fraud, truly to create a one-world socialist government the world over, claim this emergency can be averted only by eliminating greenhouse-gas emissions. Greenhouse gases include water vapor, methane, nitrous oxide, and, of course, carbon dioxide (CO2), the gas Biden nonsensically vilifies. To eliminate CO2 emissions, he says, we must stop burning fossil fuels to power transportation, generate electricity, and manufacture more than 6,000 products that allow our current standard of living.
Greenhouse gases do allow sunlight to warm the Earth’s surface by absorbing some of the heat radiation going back to space, fortunately preventing the Earth from cooling more than we would like. Greenhouse gases — and clouds — keep the earth’s surface temperature many degrees warmer than it would be without them. And almost as important, they keep much of our planet green and our crops growing to feed the population.
CO2, erroneously demonized as “carbon pollution” by Biden and his allies, is an improbable villain. Green plants use the energy of sunlight to manufacture sugar and other organic molecules of life from CO2 and water molecules. Happer and Lindzen also point out what few folks understand: “A byproduct of photosynthesis is the oxygen of our atmosphere. Each human exhales about two pounds of the ‘pollutant’ CO2 every day.”
Many scientists who understand radiative heat transfer believe that more CO2 is likely to cause some surface warming. They search for the amount of CO2-induced warming with difficulty but recognize that, whatever the number is, it is inconsequential as affecting any warming that could be considered a problem for humankind. The warming would be small and benign.
History shows that warming of a few degrees extends the growing seasons, making food more plentiful and civilization more productive. In contrast, cold periods have more often been accompanied by wars and famine.
More CO2 will certainly increase the productivity of agriculture and forestry. Over the past century, the Earth has already become noticeably greener as a result of the modest rise in CO2 from about 0.03 percent to just over 0.04 percent of atmospheric molecules. More CO2 has made a significant contribution to the increased crop yields of the past 50 years, as well. The benefits to plants of more CO2 are well-documented in hundreds of scientific studies.
Paleoclimate data show little correlation between CO2 and climate. Doubling CO2 concentrations alone might increase the earth’s surface temperature by about 1 degree C, but fraudsters use computer models with only a few variables that control the climate to obtain exaggerated answers to scare the public.
Happer and Lindzen state that “Neither contemporary observations nor the geological record support computer-based claims that CO2 is the “control knob” for the earth’s climate.” Global warming has been observed many times in the past when there has been negligible use of fossil fuels. A thousand years ago, Greenland was warmer than today, and farmers grew crops such as barley, which can no longer be grown there because of the cold.
Lindzen brilliantly summed up what is needed now:
“A serious review of policy-related climate science is long overdue. Crusaders will continue to retort that ‘the science is settled; it is time to act!’ But real science is never settled, nor is scientific truth determined by consensus or political diktats. Agreement with observations is the measure of scientific truth.”
So, Joe, there is no climate emergency. Your climate fixation is a disastrous mistake that will cripple America and pave the way for Chinese domination of the world. Like the medieval crusades, which destroyed the lives of many decent people for no useful purpose, Biden’s climate crusade is destroying America’s economy and, ultimately, the lives of its citizens.
Professor Happer will be our guest on The Other Side of the Story the weekend of April 30/ May 1 at 11 am and 8 pm EDT on both days on America Out Loud Talk Radio.
