Climate Alarmism: Probably the Greatest Hoax/Scam in World History

From the viewpoint of a skeptical former Sierra Club activist and USEPA senior analyst

Aug. 19, 2016 – Alan Carlin

Climate alarmism is probably the greatest hoax/scam in world history. The main evidence for catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW), the principal alleged adverse effect of human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), is climate models built by CAGW supporters in a field where models with real predictive power do not exist and cannot be built with any demonstrable accuracy beyond a week or two because climate and weather are coupled non-linear chaotic systems. Without the models, the whole hoax/scam collapses. Even the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has stated (see Section of the 2001 IPCC Report):

In climate research and modeling, we should recognize that we are dealing with a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore that long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.
Climate Modelers Knew or Should Have Known the Inherent Limitations of Climate Models

The hoax/scam appears to rest on the authors’ assumption that most people will not realize these inherent limitations of global climate models. Since the model authors all work in the field, they either knew this or should have known these limitations (unless they delude themselves, of course). The authors of the models have a self-interest in supporting CAGW since government grants almost always go only to supporters. This self-interest is what makes the hoax into a scam. If true climate believers understood that longer term projections cannot be made on the basis of these models, they would hopefully dismiss the whole hoax/scam for what it is.

    The climate hoax is very sophisticated – it is now all pervasive – it has taken control – the work of Maurice Strong is complete – it is very similar to the EU . designed so there is no way to turn the clock back without a Brexit style action.

    A scam is a scam – but in the end they all collapse. Just like any other Ponzi scheme it will reach a point when the money paid in has not produced anything of value and there are no more people left to be suckered into the scheme to pay for it.

    Yes it is indeed. All that matters is whether the “science” is in accord with the laws of physics. But if you don’t UNDERSTAND the physics I have explained, then why dabble in comments on climate blogs when you don’t have the necessary knowledge to know what’s right or wrong? Climatologists have not applied correct thermodynamics and their greenhouse garbage for the gullible incorrectly claims different fluxes of radiation from the Sun and the atmosphere can just be added together and the sum bunged into Stefan-Boltzmann calculations to “explain” Earth’s surface temperature. It gets even worse “explaining” Venus with only 20W/m^2 of solar radiation and the rest supposedly from the less hot atmosphere somehow in total delivering the required 16,500W/m^2. Some of you ought to be ashamed of yourselves lapping up the fictitious fiddled physics of climatology. How could their assumed isothermal troposphere possibly be the state of maximum entropy when there are obviously unbalanced energy potentials due to the greater gravitational potential energy at the top. Every functioning vortex tube proves them wrong. There’s a AU $10,000 reward offered for the first (in over three years) to prove me wrong, subject to the requirements at https://itsnotco2.wordpress.com where there is “first in the world” correct physics that DOES correctly explain planetary core and surface temperatures using the laws of physics.
