Enemies Of The State: Those Who Question Man-Caused Global Warming

Those who question or doubt the ongoing efforts to silence critics of one of the greatest hoaxes of all time, the idea of man-caused global warming, need to read the following article. What I call the "myth" of man-caused global warming relates specifically to the burning of "fossil fuels" and the expulsion of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as the primary cause of global warming or "climate change".

This issue has become so politically heated (excuse the pun) that all sense of reason, common sense and scientific integrity have been lost. Those in governmental power see nothing but dollar signs, a way to tax energy usage (read "Cap and Trade") to increase their revenue and gain additional control over the "masses". This is glaringly clear. Anyone with even the slightest understanding of the subject knows that limiting carbon dioxide emissions by taxing them, or by other means, is going to have little if any effect on global warming or climate change. It is beyond the absurd to think we can change something as enormous as the global climate. However, those now in power do not care, not about the environment, not about the economy, people's jobs, or their well-being. All they see is increased power and control for themselves.

Is this political and not scientific? You bet. And those now in control in the U.S. go by the names of Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Kerry, Lieberman, et al. Keep in mind that their spiritual leader is the less than amoral Al Gore. This story is not over and it just gets more sordid by the day with revelations such as that described in the following article.

Writing for PJM Helped Make Me Enemy of the State Number #38

As a scientist who dares to "think different" and "question authority" on global warming, I'm in good company.

Professor Freeman Dyson of the Institute for Advanced Study, a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a fellow of the Royal Society, is number 3 on the list. Dyson is a friend of mine and is one of the creators of relativistic quantum field theory; most physicists think he should have shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with Richard Feynman. MIT professor Richard Lindzen, a meteorologist who is also a member of the National Academy, is number 4. Princeton physics professor William Happer, once again a member of the National Academy of Sciences, is number 6.

I’m in good company.

The list is actually available only online. The published article, which links to the list, argues that the skeptical scientists — the article calls us “climate deniers,” trying to equate us with Holocaust deniers — have published less in climate “science” than believers in anthropogenic global warming (AGW).


But if the entire field of climate “science” is suspect, if the leaders of the field of climate “science” are suspected of faking their results and are accused of arranging for their critics’ papers to be rejected by “peer-reviewed” journals, then lack of publication in climate “science” is an argument for taking us more seriously than the leaders of the climate “science.”

Freeman Dyson, for example, was not trained as a physicist but as a mathematician. His contribution to quantum field theory was applying his mathematical skills to showing that Feynman’s work was mathematically rigorous and mathematically equivalent to another formulation due to Julian Schwinger (who shared the Nobel with Feynman). Freeman has spent the fifty years after this work switching from field to field, always making important contributions to these fields, and making them precisely because he has looked at the evidence from a different point of view.

Dick Lindzen actually is an insider in real climate science, but he is an insider who can’t be bought, an insider who follows the evidence rather than the grant money.

Will Happer is mainly an experimental atomic physicist, but a physicist who has a decades-old reputation for investigating extraordinary claims in all areas of physics. Will was one of the experimentalists who exposed the cold fusion scam a number of years ago.

As for myself, I’m a cosmologist, with a special interest in the anthropic principle, as my National Academy of Sciences security police dossier correctly notes. Twenty odd years ago, I co-authored a book, published by Oxford University Press, on the anthropic principle. As my co-author and I pointed out, the essence of the anthropic principle is eliminating human bias from the interpretation of observations, and we focused mainly on eliminating such bias from cosmology.

But human bias is human bias. I myself have looked at some of the raw data from surface stations that measure the Earth’s temperature. The raw data are from selected sites in the USA, in New Zealand, in Australia, and in Sweden. I selected these sites because I’m reasonably sure they will not have bias due to changing human habitation, or human wars, or human politics. These sites show no warming in the twentieth century. So I have to conclude that we don’t even know if there was any warming on Earth in the twentieth century.

Notice that I am not saying that there has been no warming, just that the available raw data that I’ve personally been able to check do not show it. Until all the raw temperature data are placed online, so the data can be checked by anybody, a rational person has to suspend belief in global warming, to say nothing of AGW.

The official government adjusted data for these sites do show a warming trend. All the warming is in the “corrections.” Sorry, I don’t buy it. Especially from “scientists” who are known to “correct’ their raw data to “hide the decline.”

There have been calls to silence the 496 scientists on the list. Besides “climate deniers,’ we have been called “traitors.” We all know the penalty for treason.

So far, no federal agents have come to pick me up. But nowhere in Mein Kampf does Adolf Hitler call for the extermination of the Jews. Hitler does repeatedly refer to the Jews as “tuberculosis bacilli.” What does one want to do with tuberculosis bacilli?

I’m an enemy of the state. It’s an honor.

Tipler is a brilliant man, no doubt, but he is not a climate scientist, does not research or publish in the realm of climate science, nor does he really even know the field - by his own admission, he's "looked at some" of the raw data, and that seems to be about it.

Plus he sounds pretty paranoid - or perhaps he's seeking attention. "Enemy of the state" my sweet bibby - that's some drama for the easily impressed.

Don't you ever get tired of trumpeting people who do not know what they are talking about, Pete?

Anon...(sweet bibby lover)....
So the people in the above mentioned article "don't know what they are talking about". But of course you are so arrogant (and ignorant) to claim you do????

Oh, that is rich. With every post here you reveal yourself as a greater fool. Keep it up, you make the case against the myth of man-caused global warming ever more convincing by demonstrating how blinded you true believers really are.

Never said I knew anything in particular, Petey. What I posted was that this guy was not an expert on climate science. In fact, he knows next to nothing about climate science - he admits as much - and no one but you particularly cares what he says about climate science; he is not important enough to be an enemy of the state.

But I am smart enough to check up on the people who make strange claims about being enemies of the state and such. You make the denialist claims hard to believe by posting authorities who are pretty nutty to begin with and, more importantly, do not do the scientific research to back up their claims. It's right there in the article you posted.

You are gullible enough to believe anybody who tells you what you want to hear. Perhaps Tipler can design you a time machine or prove that God exists at the Omega Point (do a Google search on the guy).
