The abuse of science

The dregs of the Obama administration and its willing dupes in politics, academia and media pursue unrelenting, egregious attacks on President Trump and his cabinet members. (Link below) Some of the most vituperative assaults come from those with visceral hatred of skeptics who question the wildly irresponsible claims that human activities drive climate change. Anyone questioning their Marxist worldview is subject to vitriol—thus, the editorial headline: “EPA is a casualty in war on science.”

…this from obviously ignorant, political operatives at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and endorsed by the Wilmington StarNews Editorial Board. (Link below)

Under the Obama administration the federal Environmental Protection Agency was largely seen by many Americans as another superfluous power group that superseded the classical rules of science for political purposes.

One of its most absurd EPA statements was that “Carbon dioxide is the primary greenhouse gas that is contributing to recent climate change.” There is no sound scientific proof of that. But those who practice the religion of environmentalism promulgate it as “settled science.” Only fools believe that findings of science can be fixed definitely as desired.

Thus, predictably, editors, pundits and leftist politicians use verbiage to discredit Scott Pruitt, President Trump’s choice of administrator of the EPA. Pruitt is a skeptic about manmade activities changing our climate—as are many climate scientists. One prominent climate scientist has said, “It takes only one good piece of evidence to destroy a scientific theory.” And manmade climate change is only a theory—and a flawed one.

Roy W. Spencer, a principal research scientist at the University of Alabama, Huntsville authored Climate Confusion and The Great Global Warming Blunder: How Mother Nature Fooled the World’s Top Climate Scientists. Dr. Spencer co-developed a method for precise monitoring of global temperatures from earth-orbiting satellites. Prior to this relatively recent development earth-surface temperature recordings were highly variable and unreliable.

Spencer and his research team have found that our climate system is much less sensitive to so-called “greenhouse gas emissions” than the “experts” claim it is. In fact, most meteorologists believe that future global temperatures are about as likely to cause earth cooling as they are to cause warming. Earth geo-history gives evidence of that. For example, Greenland once supported agricultural activities and Europeans experienced a “Little Ice-Age.”

Dr. Spencer’s research shows that the established natural climate system on planet Earth is probably responsible for most of the warming we have seen during the past 100 years based on satellite-measured evidence. This self-induced mode of climate variability is called the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO).

Furthermore, there has been no measurable global warming during the past nearly 20 years according to what I have read. Likely as not, climate change is simply another of the natural environmental cycles on Earth—water cycle, carbon cycle, etc.

Dr. Spencer refers to the natural climate cycle as “climate chaos.” His evidence of the cause of climate change includes a factor ignored by most so-called scientists—something grade schoolers once knew influenced earth’s temperature—clouds.

The issue of promoting cataclysmic destruction caused by human activity is made-to-order for totalitarians proselytizing the gospel of environmentalism: worship the sacred goddess of earth (Gaea); promote guilt about harming her (carbon emissions); spread remorse for wrongdoing (repentance); demand salvation (change your lifestyle); pay for sins (carbon taxes, etc.).

This is not science, it is pagan worship designed to control the minds of the masses—the abuse of science for evil purposes.
