Global Warming and Climate Change are back on the topic menu. And of course, governments are looking at it as an excuse for a Carbon Tax.

Benjamin Gaul — The Guardian — November 18, 2012

Why are we still even having this conversation? Oh yeah; billions of dollars in grants and taxes, taken from an unsuspecting public and given tax-free to the Wizards of Smart who keep the lie going, annually. Silly question. Let me rephrase that.

How can governments around the world continue to harp about a problem which only exists in Computer Models, in the face of all the Real World data which completely refutes said Computer Modeling?

OK, so nobody told you there was credible, verifiable data out there which debunks the whole myth of Global Warming / Climate Change. And if it’s ever brought up, it’s only to be laughed at as some wild conspiracy theorist nut-job making unsubstantiated claims. Or that the 31,487 scientists who signed the Global Warming Petition must ALL be in pay of Big Oil, they are scientists of the wrong fields or they don’t actually exist. None of them. But all the people who tell you that, fail to mention that research is big business, which is most often driven by ideology.

The scientists who know how to write the grants, get the money.

A 2005 study in the science journal Nature, surveyed 3247 US researchers who were all publicly funded by the National Institutes of Health, which is an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. HHS is the primary agency of the United States government responsible for biomedical and health-related research, and consists of 27 separate institutes and centers. Out of the 3247 scientists questioned, 503 admitted to altering design, methodology or results of their studies, because of pressure from their funding source. And those were just the scientists willing to be honest.

The trick for getting the Grant money seems to lay in what your study purports to discover. Lets say you wanted to study the dietary habits of the Red Tailed Squirrel of the Sierra Nevada mountains. You could title your grant proposal thus: “A study of the dietary habits of the Red Tailed Squirrel of the Sierra Nevada mountains.” Which makes perfect sence.

But you’re competing against another scientist whose title is “A study of the effects of Global Warming and Climate Change on the dietary habits of the Red Tailed…” You get the point. Both surveys will gather the exact same data, but only one of them forwards the current political mindset. Guess which study will get funded.

    How can governments continue to harp about a phenomena that exists only in computer models? Because most governments are based on the fantasies of their populations. Politicians say what people what to hear. When they fail to deliver, they say they need more time and/or money. Or they blame someone else–from years ago. Governments have tended to work this way for a very long time. People love fantasies and will follow the happy handout king until reality can no longer be hidden. Then they riot. It’s not new–Rome had the same problem. It goes in cycles. Sadly, I see no way to stop those cycles. People are what they are. We can only do so much.
    If it weren’t climate change, it would be a tax on sugar, or fat, or cars or ……..It’s not like politicians aren’t really, really good at taxing.
