New Jersey -( In a recent Daily Caller article, Michael Bastasch took note of “25 Years of predicting The Global Warming ‘Tipping Point’.”

This is the message that the Earth is warming rapidly and, if we don’t abandon the use of fossil fuels for power, it will arrive to wreak destruction on the human race and all life on the planet.

It is astounding how many past and present world leaders are telling everyone this despite the total lack of any real science, nor any actual warming—the Earth has been in a natural cooling cycle since 1997!

At the heart of the global warming—now called climate change—“crisis” has been the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that has been issuing apocalyptic predictions since its inception in 1988. None of its predictions have come true. How could they, based as they are on the false science of computer models, not that based on observable climate events and trends?

To this day our own government through its meteorological agencies has been caught manipulating the data gathered over the years to conform with the “warming” scenario. The worst has been the Environmental Protection Agency which is engaged in an effort to shut down coal-fired utilities and access to every other energy source on which we depend to power the nation.

Despite this national and international effort, mostly likely based on the liberal ideology that there are too many humans on the plant and dramatic ways must be found to reduce that number. In the past these anti-humanity advocates could depend on famine, disease and wars to kill off millions, but in the modern world that has become less of a threat.

One libertarian think tank, the Heartland Institute, has been leading the battle against the global warming/climate change hoax for a decade. As a Heartland policy advisor I have had a front row seat. In June, Heartland will sponsor the Tenth International Conference on Climate Change bringing together some of the world’s leading scientists to recommend that it is time for Congress to “take a fresh look at climate science”, “explore better science-based policies for energy and the environment”, and, bluntly stated, to “start over on the question of global warming?”

It did not surprise me to learn that Heartland had dispatched staff to Rome when the Pope announced he too was joining the “climate change” advocates despite its lack of any basis in science. The group garnered tons of international media coverage by simply presenting the truth. You can find out more about them here, It didn’t take long for Jeffrey Sachs, a Columbia University professor and ‘special advisor” to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, to write a commentary condemning global warming “deniers” that appeared on a Catholic website called Pewsitter.

Sachs took particular aim at The Heartland Institute and, despite not attending its Rome press conference or any of the presentations the experts provided, did not hesitate to identify Heartland as having been supported for years by the Koch brothers, known for the support of conservative groups and causes.

Joseph Bast, Heartland president, does not let such cheap shots pass by. “The Heartland Institute has received just $25,000 from a single organization, a charitable foundation affiliated with the Koch brothers during the past 15 years. Our annual budget is approximately $7 million. Even that small gift was earmarked for our work on health care reform, not global warming. Why does Sachs mention the ‘Koch brothers’ unless his intention is to smear an independent organization by falsely implying a much larger or somehow Improper level of support from some singularly unpopular billionaires?”

Bast got to the heart of the war being perpetrated by the either misinformed or deliberately lying world leaders of the climate change hoax.

“The dishonesty of Sachs’ reference to The Heartland Institute would be startling, coming from a person of Sachs’ stature, if this sort of misrepresentation of facts weren’t so common in the debate over climate change. President Obama sets the tone. Comparing global warming realists to members of the ‘flat earth society’ and rather ominously calling on his supporters to ‘hold climate change denier’s feet to the fire.’”

“Sachs has had a long and distinguished career as an academic and in various government agencies,” said Bast, “but on this issue he is letter his liberal ideology cloud his judgement. His short essay reveals a disturbing lack of knowledge about climate science and compassion toward the billions of people in the world who will be harmed by the UN’s plans to make energy more expensive and less reliable.”

“Sachs ends his essay with a call on people of all faiths to ‘fulfill our moral responsibilities to humanity and the future of Earth.’ That responsibility starts with truth-telling. Sachs and his colleagues on the left haven’t reach the starting line yet.”

It doesn’t matter if it is the Pope, the President of the United States, or the UN Secretary General if the assertion that the Earth is warming when it is not or that coal, oil and natural gas must be abandoned to “save the Earth.” Whether from ignorance or a dark hidden agenda, the whole of the global warming/climate change is aimed at harming billions, many of whom need the power that this hoax would deny to everyone.

NEVER, and I mean NEVER confuse liberals with facts! It simply doesn’t fit their skewed agenda that is wholly based on emotions and blind rhetoric.


Bill Hayes, Jamie, Ghonadz. Name calling is not considered a scientific approach to a problem. If you had any scientific background you would all find out that most of the claims about that climate changes are man made you would have discovered that they are false and based upon not so much scientific research. NASA included. It is called “Funded Scientific” – they are all looking for more funding in what they are doing. The facts are that 1000 years ago the climate was much warmer than today – proof – look at where the Norwegians settled on Greenland around… Read more »

Wow Alan, you sure do know how to incite the great unwashed believers in all things BS. For humankind to exhibit the unbelievable hubris to actually argue that we humans are more powerful than natural law and all the forces of nature leaves me just plain breathless. The Earth has been going through naturally occurring heating and cooling cycles since the day after it was formed and will continue to do so until the end of time. Sure, “they” can find any number of people to claim “man made” climate change but, as in all things political, all you have… Read more »


“So many of the world leaders” and almost all of the world’s scientists are not wrong, Mr. Paid-Denier Caruba, YOU ARE! Your article is full of lies, misinformation and pseudo-scientific BS. You are a paid stooge for the fossil fuel industry, pushing their agenda of denial and delay.


It is amazing to note how such an important environmental issue can be so political. Beliefs or opinions often are divided according to the litany of party lines. Science, religion, and sports should not be politicized. It does seem however that rational thought goes out the window with many people. It is historically true that overpopulation results in a catastrophic event that reduces population. It looks as though our next calamity to be brought about because of too many people is to be warfare or planet pollution. Please be a reasoning individual and look at information without following lockstep with… Read more »


And the reason for politics getting involved? Simple…….MONEY. None of these huge republican backed corporations want anyone telling them what to do with the waste and emissions coming out of their facilities, so they completely deny any climate science do they can keep the money machine chugging. All at the expense of the rest of the world.


See the Nasa web site for plenty of evidence.


Nonsense all the worlds scientist have agreed that global warming is real and is man-made. All the evidence agrees with their findings.


What a load of crap. There is a scientific consensus. There is loads of evidence. All pointing to the real fact that global warming is real and is man made. 98% of the people who study climate agree yet we keep hearing these talking heads who have no scientific knowledge or background spouting nonsense. And the more we find out the more conclusive the evidence is that it is real and it is man made. They just found out that the C02 levels are the highest they have been in 2 million years. The only ones who do not agree… Read more »


Actually, there is NO consensus. Two years ago, at a convention of environmental scientists, well over 30,000 scientists signed a petition stating that there is currently insufficient evidence to support any belief even that the planet is actually warming, let alone that it is being caused by anything anthropogenic. The models upon which the original scare (including Al Gore’s self-serving propaganda film – which is no longer even allowed to be shown in UK schools as “science”) was based on computer models derived from a closed-cell lab experiment that demonstrated that continuously increasing, exponentially (ie, on a logarithmic scale, not… Read more »

The science is clear – 97% of climate scientists agree that global temperatures are warming due to human carbon emissions. If we care about the future that we pass to our children, it’s time to reduce carbon emissions.

Next we’ll be hearing how global warming is the new 8th sin or something.


It sure would be nice if there were an editor who could correct the wording and punctuation of these short missives. Doesn’t anybody read this stuff before it is published?
Regarding Global Warming, aka, Climate Change, aka Just Plain Weather, please do not confuse me with the facts and the truth. That paragon of truth, justice and the American way, Barack Obama wouldn’t tell anybody a fib, would he? Just because I’m freezing my bippy off doesn’t mean the earth isn’t warming . . . does it?
