The only number that matters is ZERO

One of the most important issues of our time is what we should call the Climate Delusion, a myth that has been promulgated around the world by our educational institutions, our politicians, and the media.

The Climate Delusion is the belief that we are living in a world threatened by the most important and harmless molecule that Mother Nature has bestowed on Earth⏤carbon dioxide.

Rather than be thankful for this molecule which provides for life on our planet, very bad people have chosen to demonize it for political reasons, basically to enslave the world. You may think I am being too strident here. I am not. We are at war for our freedom.

Nearly half the population of the developed world has been deluded into thinking that the earth is in danger of destruction by carbon dioxide, and that to save the earth we must transform society by shutting down inexpensive energy that is the life blood of civilization.

They wish us to adopt Socialism, open our borders, redistribute our wealth, and form a New World Order where collectivism rules and individual freedom is no more. They appear to believe that the world could run on undependable expensive wind and solar energy. They really know it isn’t so, but recognize it would enslave the world to the whims of government control, passing out energy as they choose.

Their only arguments, intended to fool the public, supporting their crisis arguments are the climate models that are really a joke, and a bad one at that!

In consultation with Astrophysicist Willie Soon and Tom Wysmuller, formerly of NASA, we chose the following twelve variables which common sense says, must be considered when attempting to predict future temperatures and climate impacts on our planet. It turns out that all of these are variables we can only guess at because we do not fully understand them. They include:

1- changes in seasonal solar irradiation

2- energy flows between the ocean and atmosphere

3- energy flows between the air and land

4- the balance between the Earth’s water, water vapor, and ice

5- the impact of clouds

6- understanding the planet’s ice

7- mass change among ice sheets, sea level, and glaciers

8- the ability to factor in hurricanes and tornadoes

9- the impact of vegetation on temperature

10- tectonic movement on the ocean floor

11- the differential rotation between the earth’s surface and the planet’s core

12- the solar system’s magnetic field and gravitational interaction

All of the above variables are not well understood, requiring us to make educated guesses at how they relate to each other and their individual impacts on climate. More specifically, as to how they impact the Earth’s thermostat.

Understanding our ignorance regarding all of these variables should convince anyone that mathematical modeling predictions are without merit, indeed, a joke. Solutions to sophisticated mathematical equations prove nothing if they have little relation to physical reality.

Regardless of these facts, government has poured billions of dollars into the coffers of academic institutions churning out useless predictions. More than 100 climate models are financed by the United States government, none of which agree with each other. None have accurately predicted anything as to our climate over the past 30 years of their operation.

With these facts in mind it is no surprise that Willie Soon calculated a few years ago that if we actually knew all the variables involved in a reasonable mathematical climate model it would take a supercomputer 40 years to reach an answer to a question we posed.

We have thus far failed to educate our politicians, our students of science, and the public in general about the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on mankind. 

It is way past time for a National Debate on the science underlying the manmade global warming/climate change mania that is the real danger to our planet. Governments across the world appear willing to destroy their economies to support a terrible hoax.

In an appeal to our readers’ common sense we have constructed two accurate 10,000 dot charts. The first one below shows how much man-produced carbon dioxide exists in the atmosphere as a greenhouse gas relative to all such greenhouse gas in the atmosphere. The second chart shows how much carbon dioxide exists in our atmosphere relative to all other gases in our atmosphere.

On the first chart you can see that while Carbon dioxide makes up 3.6% of all greenhouse gas, man’s contribution of CO2 from factories power plants and automobiles is only 0.12% of all greenhouse gas. On the second chart you can see that total carbon dioxide in the atmosphere makes up four ten thousands (.0004) of all atmospheric gases, but man’s contribution is only one ten thousandths (.0001).

We all know there is a cottage industry of folks building climate models which appear to be scaring the public to enlarge government to  save them from seeing their planet destroyed. There are however many sound scientists that recognize the absurd exaggeration of the impacts of carbon dioxide emissions on our planet. But they also work with mathematical models to show how tiny is the impact of carbon dioxide on our Earth. They are often called Luke-warmers. The problem is that by their professing carbon dioxide’s impact as being small they are giving the proverbial “inch” which allows the alarmists to take a “mile”.

It is time that we all stop fighting alarmist numbers with our small numbers. The only number that matters is ZERO. That is, in fact, the real impact of carbon dioxide on the Earth’s thermostat and sea level rise. We are not in a battle over numbers. We are in a battle to protect our way of life. 

If we lose to the so-called Progressives, who should really be called Regressives, they will take us back to life as it was in the 19th century, but much worse, as they will have installed a government capable of controlling every aspect of our lives.

In this op-ed Dr. Jay Lehr and Mr. Tom Harris assert human-caused climate was “myth” promulgated by unnamed “educational institutions, our politicians, and the media” and who they assert “…wish us to adopt Socialism, open our borders, redistribute our wealth, and form a New World Order where collectivism rules and individual freedom is no more.”
Dr. Jay Lehr and Mr. Tom Harris have a long history of writing false and misleading op-eds about climate change. In the past Mr. Harris and Dr. Lehr blamed Al Gore for “the dangerous mythology of dangerous manmade global warming.” (Source “HOW AL GORE BUILT THE GLOBAL WARMING FRAUD” Oct 19, 2018, The Heartland Institute) However, Mr. Harris also claims “man-made carbon dioxide causing global warming” was a “myth” created by Maurice Strong. (Source “$312 Billion: Green Energy Makes Ontario the Most Debt-Ridden Province on Earth” by Dr. Tim Ball and Tom Harris, Jun 18, 2018, PJ Media)
If Dr. Lehr and Mr. Harris had a strong argument to support their views, then they wouldn’t need unsupported assertions and false conspiracy theories

Abuse as hominem is the primary tool in the warmist alarmist tool box. Sometimes you really get crafty and add racist homophobe.
There is not the slightest hint of any science in your desperate and contrived attempt to discredit Dr.Lehr and Mr. Harris.
Too bad for your kind that we are wise to the Alinsky technique of ridicule, minimize and marginalize.
It is really a shame that you dislike yourself so much that you open a comment you have no clue how to intellectually develop let alone support with any science.
A question for you: why does warm pop release more CO2 than opening a can of cold pop? When you understand that grasshopper you will be worthy to learn about infrared absorbance interference between water vapor and CO2. Then you will be worthy to learn The Laws if Thermodynamics and that one cannot create energy from nothing which is the ultimate sin of the greenhouse gas theory. Then O grasshopper you can begin to look beyond our humble sphere to the ultimate source of atmospheric energy, whose variations control the input of energy into our climate driving its changes….THE SUN!

Quoting Dr. Jay Lehr and Mr. Tom Harris and providing the sources so their words can be read in context is not abuse or “Alinsky technique of ridicule, minimize and marginalize” but polite and cogent discourse.
James MacNeal writes, “There is not the slightest hint of any science in your desperate and contrived attempt to discredit Dr.Lehr and Mr. Harris.” Mr. MacNeal is mistaken. Its not my words which impact Mr. Harris’ and Dr. Lehr’s credibility. It’s theirs. Dr. Lehr’s and Mr. Harris’ reject the scientific evidence of human-caused climate change and promote false political conspiracy theories.
Mr. MacNeal’s assertions are not supported by the scientific evidence. The evidence of human-caused climate change is both robust and compelling. (Source Chapter 2: Physical Drivers of Climate Change, VolumeI, NCA4) “The Sun provides the primary source of energy driving Earth’s climate system, but its variations have played very little role in the climate changes observed in recent decades. Direct satellite measurements since the late 1970s show no net increase in the Sun’s output, while at the same time global surface temperatures have increased.” (Source “Climate Change Evidence & Causes” An overview from the Royal Society and the US National Academy of Sciences)

The Soviet State, American Style!

The Soviet State, American Style!

With mandates’ success, political orders for social control will continue to grow. We are experiencing tyranny by dictatorship. Biden’s administration is a crime syndicate specializing in bribery and extortion. Demanding the entire population be injected by unproven but already demonstrably dangerous vaccines, is revealing to us the very essence of the Soviet state, American style. If they get away with it, the mandated vaccinations will be just the beginning…

The Truth Behind the Soviet-Era Supply Chain Crisis

The latest bottleneck in the supply chain is the hundreds of container ships waiting to be unloaded in West Coast ports like Los Angeles and San Diego. The mainstream media tell us the cause is a shortage of truck drivers. Now we find out that there ARE enough drivers (for the Ports, at least). The real cause is the State of California imposing an…

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

The Covid Gene Therapy Shot and Its Approval or Not

As if the stench wasn’t enough, until this fake Pfizer approval, pushed through with the complicity of a fake president, elected by fake votes, and pushed by the fake media, until today the fastest approval for a vaccine ever took five years – which was for Ebola, that kills ~50% of its victims. By contrast, we have around just six months of safety data for the Covid shot until approval, and the survival rate is 99.997 if you are under 21 and not far below that even up to age 70…

America’s Decline is a Choice

America’s Decline is a Choice

Many in America think that America needs to be brought down to size. Barack Obama once said, “My legacy will be an America brought down to the level of the rest of the world,” and though Obama was not able to realize this ambition, the Biden Administration is moving full speed ahead with plans to weaken the United States militarily and economically, destroying the wealth of the American people in the process…

BLM Joins MAGA in Extraordinary Backlash against Dems

BLM Joins MAGA in Extraordinary Backlash against Dems

Marching alongside residents like John Tabacco, NYC Conservative Activist and host of the Newsmax show “Wiseguys” were equally incensed New Yorkers like Rev Kevin McCall, a BLM activist. Where MAGA rally-goers generally remain lawful and peaceful, unlike what mainstream media likes to portray, BLM protesters have no such parameters. McCall “made it clear to the crowd that sometimes civil disobedience is the only way to get the government to listen.”

19 Biden Policies Designed to Destroy the Middle-Class

The dark forces behind the scenes working to reshape the U.S. are not stupid. It’s clear they’re working to destabilize society, with the long-term objective being to get them the power to transform America! The enemy of the Biden Cabal are clearly those terrible middle-class deplorables who cling to their guns and Bibles. It’s all those creepy people who go to work every day, pay their taxes, obey the law…

School Transfers Gender-Fluid Boy to Another School to Rape Again

School Transfers Gender-Fluid Boy to Another School to Rape Again

The latest mutation is “gender fluid” people – you can be a man one day, a woman the next day, then back to a man, and then whatever suits you. The predictable result? Rapists can now claim to be female whenever it helps them to rape. This rapist wore a skirt, entered the girl’s restroom, then raped a girl. Twice. Enabled and abetted by the school authorities, who knowingly transferred him to another school where he promptly committed the same crime all over again…

Biden Blunders Make Trump Tweets Sound Like Music

Politically biased private communication monopolies have canceled social media accounts of a duly elected sitting president, along with blocking scandalous information regarding foreign influence-peddling by his opponent just prior to the 2020 election. First Amendment rights are being routinely abridged through an ever-creeping ideologically…
