The world’s climate scientists are almost all employed by western governments. They usually don’t pay you to do climate research unless you say you believe manmade global warming is dangerous, and it has been that way for more than 20 years. The result is a near-unanimity that is unusual for a theory in such an immature science.
‘In 1999, Hansen showed that the 1930s was by far hottest decade in US. That didn’t fit the agenda, so Hansen beat down 1930s and pushed up recent years’ — ‘More recently, Hansen has done the same thing all over the Arctic’ — ‘NASA used to show Antarctica cooling, and then suddenly changed it to warming. (These maps have recently been deleted from the NASA web site)’
When George Washington wrote that “free people ought … to be armed,” he gave us a clue as to the kind of America the Founders envisioned. It was one where the government stayed within its bounds, carrying out its limited duties while leaving the people free to exercise their rights and liberties. Thomas Jefferson spoke to this when he described the “good government” as one that “shall restrain men from injuring one another [and] shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement.” In other words, the “good government” is one that enforces the law, thus preserving order, but otherwise remains within the limited parameters established for it, so that people can go about their business, whatever that business may be.
Physicist Daniel Sweger refutes the catastrophic AGW hypothesis in his paperThe Climate Engine, showing that CO2 has a negligible effect upon climate and that water vapor acts as a negative feedback to global warming. Dr. Sweger uses data from 3 locales to show an inverse relationship between humidity and temperature.
