How government corrupts science
By Arthur Robinson, Ph.D.
The following correspondence was sent by (Harold Lewis, Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of California) to Curtis G. Callan, Jr. of Princeton University, who serves as current President of the American Physical Society:
Extract: “…It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudo scientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. ( He seems to have forgotten Albert Einstein) Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare. (Montfords book organizes the facts very well.) I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that revulsion a definition of the word scientist…”

For those who only read peer reviewed literature on matters scientific, ClimateGate has a label, ‘Conspiracy’, something guaranteed to shrivel the flesh of the hypnotised faithful of science like salt on a leach.
Smithsonian Scientists Return from Strange Arctic Exploration.
“On the coast of Greenland are found the long-abandoned ruins of many buildings erected by the ancient Norsemen, of rock, and very substantial. According to tradition, a Norse navigator named Gunnibiorn landed in the country in the year 872 A. D. The Norsemen certainly went as far as 75 degrees north latitude, which cannot be reached by the stoutest modern ship without serious risk. These voyages were accomplished, too, in half-decked, open boats. A stone found near Upernavik, in latitude 72 degrees and 30 minutes, bears an inscription in Runic dated 1135. In the old sagas and chronicles there is little mention of ice as an obstruction to navigation, and it is evident that the climate in those days was much warmer than it is now. …”
Below we see a religious confusion of guilt from the academic scientific priesthood.
Climate change is the scientific equivalent of original sin and of a fallen humanity. But science offers no answers, just blame. What became of hydrogen fuel? The fact is that science has failed on two counts: Failure to provide new clean energy sources and damned lies about climate change. But as we see below, it’s all our own fault.

How Did Humans First Alter Global Climate?
A bold new hypothesis suggests that our ancestors’ farming practices kicked off global warming thousands of years before we started burning coal and driving cars.
By William F. Ruddiman
“New evidence suggests that concentrations of CO2 started rising about 8,000 years ago, even though natural trends indicate they should have been dropping. Some 3,000 years later the same thing happened to methane, another heat-trapping gas. The consequences of these surprising rises have been profound. Without them, current temperatures in northern parts of North America and Europe would be cooler by three to four degrees Celsius — enough to make agriculture difficult. In addition, an incipient ice age — marked by the appearance of small ice caps–would probably have begun several thousand years ago in parts of Northeastern Canada. Instead the earth’s climate has remained relatively warm and stable in recent millennia.”

“Public scepticism prompts Science Museum to rename climate exhibition”
“The Science Museum is revising the contents of its new climate science gallery to reflect the wave of scepticism that has engulfed the issue in recent months. The decision by the 100-year-old London museum reveals how deeply scientific institutions have been shaken by the public’s reaction to revelations of malpractice by climate scientists.
The museum is abandoning its previous practice of trying to persuade visitors of the dangers of global warming. It is instead adopting a neutral position, acknowledging that there are legitimate doubts about the impact of man-made emissions on the climate.”
The Medieval Warm Period (MWP, c. 900-1400)
The MWP was a time when Greenland had much less ice than it has today, when the Vikings successfully farmed the region. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medieval_Warm_Period
(Note: If we look at the line chart above we see that the temperature is warmer in 2004 than it was during the MWP and yet it is impossible to farm Greenland today.)
IPCC 1990 recognized Medieval Warm Period (MWP) temperatures were above current levels. IPCC 2001 used the “Hockey Stick” chart that makes MWP disappear.
Skeptic Strategy for Talking About Global Warming
Also gleaned from the ClimateGate e-mails is the revelation that there has, in fact, been no warming over the past two decades. I’m thinking about all the school kids who have been misled into supporting anti-warming campaigns and the number of businesses that will go bust as a result of the scam. Not to mention the utility companies who use global warming to justify the ramping up of energy charges.
Medieval Warm Period Fraud
“Recently it was revealed that one “scientific” effort involved the change of more than 5,000 articles and complete erasure of more than 500 in the Web-based encyclopedia Wikipedia. These articles were changed because they made mention of the Medieval Warm Period, a period about 1,000 years ago when Earth temperatures were much higher than they are today and of other research data that contradicted the human-caused global warming agenda. This erasure was done by prominent climate “scientists” who created a web site specifically for the purpose of smearing and suppressing any work that threatened their empire of lavishly government funded human-caused global warming “research,” called Realclimate.org.” Published: 03/03/2010
Medieval Warm Period was only in the North Atlantic Region
Adhikari and Kumon (2001), whilst investigating sediments in Lake Nakatsuna in central Japan, finding a warm period from AD 900 to 1200 that corresponded to the Medieval Warm Period and three cool phases, of which two could be related to the Little Ice Age. Another research in northeastern Japan shows that there is one warm/humid interval from AD 750 to 1200, and two cold/dry intervals from AD 1 to 750 and 1200 to present. Ge et al. studied temperatures in China during the past 2000 years; they found high uncertainty prior to the 16th century but good consistency over the last 500 years, highlighted by the two cold periods 1620s1710s and 1800s1860s, and the warming during the 20th century. They also found that the warming during the 10-14th centuries in some regions might be comparable in magnitude to the warming of the last few decades of the 20th century which was unprecedented within the past 500 years.
Again MWP in Europe matches Japan?

In reviewing Aono/Amoto 1994 temperature reconstruction for Kyoto going back to 1000 AD I noticed a major one time temperature change in the graph at the latter part of the 16th century. Upon reviewing their methodology I concluded that they were basing their temperature estimates on blooming dates of cherry blossoms, but had failed to correct for Gregorian calendar implementation in 1582. This drove their pre 1582 temperature estimates downward by 2.6 degrees and diminishing to a downward off set of 1.6 degrees by 1000 AD. I reconstructed their graph to reflect proper calendar correction. The result is that their graph shows a variable but steady climate with a recent sharp uptick, but the corrected graph oscillates almost in tandem with the Scotland Morroco reconstruction above.

This would imply that the MWP was in sync between Europe and Japan.
“Temperatures derived from an 180/160 profile through a stalagmite found in a New Zealand cave (40.67S, 172.43E) suggested the Medieval Warm Period to have occurred between AD 1050 and 1400 and to have been 0.75C warmer than the Current Warm Period.” The MWP has also been evidenced in New Zealand by an 1100-year tree-ring record http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medieval_Warm_Period
By far, the largest, by volume, greenhouse gas is water vapour, not often mentioned and this is coupled with a smaller but still huge reservoir of natural CO2 that is always with us. Within this huge CO2 reservoir is contained the much smaller amount of man-made CO2. We are told that this smaller amount of CO2 is somehow (It’s not known how) acting as a catalyst on all the rest and causing the earth’s temperature to rise – the sworn testimony of those who cannot forecast next weeks weather. In addition, a slight of hand is used to ensure that we all swallow the medicine, this being, the attachment of the man-made CO2 to the complete global warming package. Even if no one was disputing the fact that the earth is warming, the problem arises when the warming is linked to man-made emissions as if they were one and the same thing, which they are not.
The psychology behind all of this is one of guilt and the accusation that we are all contributing to our own demise by driving our cars and heating our homes in winter. This is not science but political propaganda and the fact that we have no choice but to do these things because of the total failure of science to produce an alternative clean energy source is never mentioned. Also not mentioned when speaking of these things is the fact that the hot fusion projects that were supposed to give us all the energy we need have failed miserably after something like sixty years of experimentation and huge expenditure from the public purse. Were this a privately funded project it would have been terminated long ago due to lack of progress and the large expenditure.

Climate Change History
Svante Arrhenius (1859-1927) was a Swedish scientist who was the first to claim in 1896 that fossil fuel combustion may eventually result in enhanced global warming. He proposed a relation between atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations and temperature. He found that the average surface temperature of the earth is about 15C because of the infra red absorption capacity of water vapour and carbon dioxide.
Rarely mentioned in connection with his genius regarding global warming is that he was a member of Swedish Society for Racial Hygiene (Eugenics).
See also, Jean Baptiste Joseph Fourier 1768 1830 and John Tyndall FRS 1820 1893 for more eugenics insanity.
I’m looking for an upward trend in scientific madness.
About the same time as our friend Arrhenius was talking about the perils of CO2, another scientist (looking for the link) realised that the ice ages, far from being the result of cold weather, required the assistance of heat in large quantities in order to evaporate the water from the oceans and transport megatons of ice to the northern regions. He also said that this process required the equivalent of the heat needed to melt the same quantity of iron.
All such processes require energy and the question is posed: where did, what must have been a prodigious amount of heat come from at a time when temperatures were supposed to be dropping?
In other words, a great deal of heat is required to glaciate the Northern Hemisphere with miles thick ice sheets and produce the postulated ice ages of our past, with glaciers creeping south across Europe and North America. Without this extra heat the north can become colder, but cannot form any glaciers or ice sheets larger than those we see today and there can be no ice age. And so, we have the situation where the ice age that ended ten thousand years ago is unexplained in terms of the present climate theory.
North Pole rainfall ‘bizarre’: climatologist
Thursday, April 29, 2010 | 4:22 PM CT
Spring showers are next to non-existent in the High Arctic, so Environment Canada’s senior climatologist says he’s baffled to hear that it rained near the North Pole this week.
My original source:
Here in Britain, we had a particularly cold winter 2010 due to prevailing north and north easterly winds, that blow yet in May 2010 (the time of writing). I can only logically assume that our usual warm air has been swept up to polar regions in an exchange, but a theory of changing weather patterns probably would not support global warming.
At the beginning of 2010 the Kingdom of Jordan had a fall of snow, the first in thirty years, I know because I was there at the time.
Latest: It seems that the problem is the jet stream… that has slowed, but the overall trend is warmer. What else could it be? – coldest temperatures in Britain since records began, but science is not looking at things like that, but trends – global.
