A change in temperature is a change in climate. We worry about man-made climate change if a temperature change will last decades or centuries and if the change will disfigure the environment.
The physical basics of climate change state that “atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations are rising, carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, and it absorbs and re-radiates longwave radiation downwards. The radiation is trapped (or at least delayed) meaning that there is more of it around and hence temperatures go up.” 
Solar energy which would normally go out into space is kept inside earth’s weather system by the presence of carbon dioxide.
Carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, especially water, “trap some of the heat we receive from the sun and prevent it from bouncing back into space.” 
How much can increased atmospheric carbon dioxide be expected to warm the earth? If the atmosphere is sensitive, it will heat a lot. If insensitive, new carbon dioxide will have limited effect. Climate change proponents argue that if the atmosphere is sensitive, we must phase out use of fossil fuels.
The opponents agree with all of the science laid out here, but think the atmosphere is not sensitive to increased carbon dioxide, meaning that carbon dioxide emissions will not have a profound impact on water and clouds and the greenhouse effect. Skeptics believe other factors, like the sun and the ocean, are predominant in creation of weather and temperature.
We know from the historical record that “the climate changes all the time, in different and unpredictable”  ways.
Earth’s temperature changes constantly. The range of temperatures is approximately 6.5 degrees Fahrenheit over the last 10,000 years. The chart shows temperatures in Greenland fluctuating between negative 29 degrees Celsius to negative 32.5 degrees Celsius. Do they prove climate change real? Yes, climate change is real and constant. Is “manmade” carbon dioxide causing climate change? In all of the 10,000 years shown in the chart man played no role in the change of temperature or the carbon dioxide level. The climate changes with or without man’s presence. (See the chart: “10,000 Years of Climate Change. The Climate Has Always Changed.”)
Is the addition or subtraction of carbon dioxide the consequential factor in the creation of global temperature? Is air with added carbon dioxide the “greatest threat facing humankind today”?  Or, if we take action to reduce carbon dioxide, will we simply close “a window in a house with no walls”? 
Pre-industrial carbon dioxide was 280 parts-per-million (ppm). Current carbon dioxide is 400 ppm.
Our current carbon dioxide level is “near to an all-time low as assessed against the geological record.”  Using a 550 million-year timeframe, the “earth currently exists in a state of carbon dioxide dioxide starvation.”  Carbon dioxide is increasing, but compared to history it’s abnormally low.
Sea levels have been rising due to the climate but “sea levels have been rising steadily at the same rate for at least the last 700 years.”  Sea levels have risen about 130 meters – equal to a 30-story building — in our current interglacial, beginning 12,000 years ago. 
Sea levels for the past twenty years have risen 3.2 millimeters a year, according to the University of Colorado.  They are rising a foot-a-century. The width of a laptop screen.
Ice at the poles is also a critical measure of temperature trends. Ice cover in Antarctica in 2014 was greater than any in the satellite record started in the late 1970s. NASA says sea ice cover in Antarctica has grown 1.5 per cent a decade for several decades and was 7.7 million square miles at its maximum in 2014. 
Ice cover in the arctic is at or near lows in the satellite record. The National Snow and Ice Data Center reports three million square miles of arctic ice in July 2016. The poles are moving in opposite directions, but the arctic is shrinking faster (21,000 square miles a year) than the Antarctic is growing (7,300 square miles a year).
The key figure in dangerous manmade global warming is temperature change. Temperatures have warmed 0.7 degrees Centigrade in the twentieth century.  Other sources say the increase is slightly higher or about 0.8°C or 1.4°F.  The increase is small enough to be almost “undetectable” for human observers. The Met Office calls the increase 0.8° C in the last 150 years.  “But the great bulk of it—0.5°C out of the 0.8°C—occurred during the last quarter of the twentieth century.”
The increase in temperature stopped about eighteen years ago.  The rapid upward movement of temperature at the end of the 20th Century created a factual basis for concern, but not an alarming concern in view of the historic temperature record.
“We actually live in a cold epoch,” according to Ian Plimer, emeritus professor of earth sciences at the University of Melbourne and professor of mining geology at the University of Adelaide. “Ice is a rare rock and has been on Earth for less than twenty per cent of its history.” 
Warming of one degree centigrade since the Little Ice Age is also “entirely unalarming in rate and magnitude”, said Robert Carter, Emeritus Fellow and Science Policy Advisor at the Institute of Public Affairs, science adviser at the Science and Public Policy Institute and chief science adviser for the International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC), “when compared with other similar natural warmings that occurred over the preceding 10,000 years.” 
“Plotted in the same scale as a standard outdoor home thermometer,” said Anthony Watts, Retired American Meteorology Society certified television meteorologist, “the change of the last 130 years is hardly even visible.” 
Carbon dioxide is not the only factor in the creation of temperature.
Oceanic weather patterns influence temperature. They include the El Niño-Southern Oscillation, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, and the Atlantic Multi-decadal Oscillation. 
Garth W. Paltridge, emeritus professor and honorary research fellow at the Institute of Antarctic and Southern Oceans Studies, hypothesizes that “internal ocean behavior could be a major cause of the warming over the past half-century.” 
The planets also influence temperature.
The earth itself has “natural cycles that span tens of thousands of years including changes affected by Earth’s tilt (41,000 year), eccentricity (100,000) and precession (20,000).” 
Astronomer Milutin Milankovitch has argued that the earth’s tilt, eccentricity, and precession profoundly influence glaciation  – the rise and fall of global ice.
Glaciers, including ice at the poles, play a major role in temperature. Ice expands and temperature falls. Ice retreats and temperature rises.
The glaciers are especially influenced in their decline or growth by sun patterns. “The major factor in long term glacial growth and retreat is summer insolation (the amount of incoming solar radiation).” 
The possible disappearance of sun spots today has led to speculation that “the most likely climatic trend over the next several decades is one of significant cooling rather than warming,” said Professor Carter, former head of the School of Earth Sciences at James Cook University. 
A lot of influences make weather. Ocean-weather patterns, variations in the earth’s astronomical patterns, the sun’s intensity, the level of carbon dioxide, and its interaction with water in the formation of clouds, all factor into the creation of temperature.
If the earth does warm quickly, the concern is that we will have “fast-rising seas, failing crops, melting ice caps, permanent droughts, worse epidemics and mass extinctions.” 
We could reach catastrophic tipping points. Burning oil, gas, and coal may lead to “sea level rise, ice sheet melting, torrential rains, drought, hurricanes, and any other severe weather event.” 
In 2001 the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) “predicted a huge and rapid rise”  in temperatures of up to up to six degrees in this century. After the warming life on earth would be “wiped out”. “Millions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable.” 
Huge fire balls smash into cities. They explode with the power of atomic bombs. Flash floods wreak havoc. “Life on earth ends in apocalyptic storms.” 
The seas rise 100 meters. Water covers the land.
This sounds frightening, and it will be devastating if true, but the climate models scientists invented to see the future have falsified the reliability of the predictions of doom. 
We have had “37 consecutive years of documented, systematic model failure.”  “The failure of the models … need to be acknowledged”  but the proponents refuse to admit their error.
“The current generation of general circulation climate models (GCMs) are unable to make accurate projections of climate even ten years ahead, let alone the 100-year period,” said Mr. Carter, the former earth sciences professor. 
If the theory of dangerous manmade global warming predicts the future, and if weather models prove scientists cannot predict the future, then the alarmist theory about a dangerous future has been disproved as a scientific hypothesis. You cannot reasonably champion a scientific theory when your own work proves you do not have the expertise to make the claim. (Please see the chart: “Climate Models Fails to Predict Warming Trends”.)
Yet an overwhelming majority of climate scientists confidently predicted global warming would accelerate but “there has been no further warming at all”  since approximately the year 2000.
The models prove above all else our ignorance, said Mr. Paltridge of the Institute of Antarctic and Southern Oceans Studies. “The chances of proving—proving in the hard scientific sense—that change of climate over the next century will be large enough to be disastrous are virtually nil.” 
Dr. Roy Spencer, who runs the University of Alabama at Huntsville global temperature data, said climate models have so far “failed miserably”. 
There are benefits to warming if the warming trend returns. We may end up embracing warming as a precursor of abundant wildlife and human comfort.
The cold kills 20 times as many people as hot weather, according to an international study analyzing 74 million deaths in 384 locations across 13 countries. 
There will be “dire economic implications of trying to cease the use of fossil fuels.”  Poverty is the most successful and dangerous human disease. Fossil fuels are the primary medicine we take to fight poverty.
I think of those persons, for example, who burn manure to stay warm and cook their food. Fumes from this burning are “the major source of indoor pollution in the developing world and is reckoned to cause at least a million deaths a year.”  Electricity and natural gas would solve this problem. Both require the creation of carbon dioxide emissions.
The increase of carbon dioxide has made the earth “observably greener”.  Carbon dioxide is the basic plant food. Carbon dioxide is the key to photosynthesis, the process plants use to live and grow. Carbon dioxide is like oxygen for plants.
Our attitude toward carbon dioxide should start by recognizing that “the biggest health risk in the world today, particularly of course in the developing world, is poverty.”  Fossil fuels play a huge role, perhaps the primary role, in the war against poverty.
We are spending big money on climate change. “The current re-direction of global funds in the name of climate change is of the order of a billion dollars a day.”  Climate change has also been called a “trillion-dollar industry”. Renewable-energy investment is $359 billion annually. 
The corridors of power in big science are filled with true believers zealously advocating for the adoption of the dangerous manmade global warming theory; referred too here as the alarmist movement. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the primary vehicle of alarmists, is “the expression of the beliefs of a small circle of scientists and interested lobbyists who, against all evidence, have convinced themselves that humans are having a dramatic effect on the Earth’s climate,” said Dr. Willie Soon, a researcher with the Solar and Steller Physics Division of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. 
You have read that 97 per cent of scientists have attained a consensus agreeing that half of the global warming since 1950 has been caused by human emissions of carbon dioxide. Legates et al. checked the scientific papers on climate to verify the 97% consensus. They found “0.5 per cent of the abstracts of 11,944 scientific papers on climate-related topics published over the 21 years from 1991-2011 had explicitly stated an opinion that more than half of the global warming since 1950 had been caused by human emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.” 
One-of-200 papers say dangerous manmade global warming is real, but the media says 97 of 100 scientists support the theory. If scientific papers are the library of scientific knowledge, the 97 percent consensus figure is a hoax. Big Media has manufactured a fake truth.
The important figures in the field should be contacted and questioned so that we know the true state of opinion. Disagreement is much wider than reported. 31,487 U.S. scientists “have publicly signed a statement that they consider the dangerous manmade global warming hypothesis inconsistent with the evidence.”  (See the Global Warming Petition Project.) If there are more than 30,000 scientists who question the dangerous manmade global warming theory, how many support it? How can we even start a meaningful conversation without having elementary questions answered?
We don’t have basic facts about the judgments of leading practitioners. What if only 10 percent of climate physicists and weather experts are hardcore advocates of dangerous manmade global warming and all the rest is media bias?
Nigel Lawson, the British politician and author, says “the overwhelming majority of scientists in climate and related fields, therefore, remain commendably open to the possibility that some other influence—such as the sun—may be the true primum mobile of the Earth’s climate.” 
“The IPCC asserts against all evidence that the sun has little influence on climate change,” said Dr. Soon, the aerospace engineer. A total of 41 persons worked on an IPCC chapter on the sun. Only one was an expert on solar physics. Their work is “shot through with critical errors and serious misrepresentations.” 
The media has reported literally hundreds of events and trends caused by global warming; presumably many of them attested by scientists. One famous list has 883 entries of changes caused by global warming.
In that list climate change has caused: alligators in the Thames, animals to head for the hills, the reduction of avalanches, increased avalanches, beetle infestation, confused birds, blood contamination, cave paintings to be threatened, lost clownfish, the earth crumbling, the earth dying, the earth warming, the earth’s light dimming, the earth pushed past the point of no return, the earth slowing down, the earth spinning faster, the earth exploding, the earth turning upside down, deafness in fish, lopsidedness in fish, glacial earthquakes, the balding of hedgehogs, indigestion, Italy to be robbed of pasta, a Maple syrup shortage, the speed up of ocean waves, oyster herpes, alteration of penguin sex lives, rabid bats, sexual promiscuity, sour grapes, traffic jams, a truffle shortage, the doubling of water bills, and witchcraft executions. And 850 other things.
The likelihood is that the content of carbon dioxide in our air today has had no influence on the occurrence of this list of bad or unusual things. Who is paying for attaching the ills of the world to dangerous manmade global warming?
Global warming “risks destroying, perhaps for centuries to come, the unique and hard-won reputation for honesty which is the basis of society’s respect for scientific endeavor.” 
The U.N. panel on climate change will not acknowledge the powerful non-carbon dioxide factors which create weather because they are “financially and ideologically dependent upon coming to a single, aprioristic viewpoint, regardless of the objective truth.”  What we have done is “create a monster that ignores the truth.”
If dangerous manmade global warming is falsified, the proponents lose everything: Money, job, reputation, meaning. The only thing they will recover is truth and honesty.
There is good reason to believe both truth and honesty have lost their place among scientists as we shall see in part two of our work on climate change.
Part 2: Climate Change: Data is a Travesty
Climategate in 2009 proved the scientists were “quite capable of deliberately selecting data in order to overstate the case for dangerous climate change.”  The leading scientists spoke openly about gatekeeping research journals “to deny publication of any material that goes against the orthodox dogma.” These are the actions of a person or group that is committing fraud.
To make your point or hide the truth you may change the representation of data. Both of the charts above show the same numbers. (See the chart: “140 Years of Climate Change on Two Scales”.)
In the Climategate emails we saw desperation to escape from data. The scientists saw the failure of climate models falsified their theory of dangerous manmade global warming.
“The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t,” said Dr. Kevin Trenberth, Distinguished Senior Scientist in the Climate Analysis Section at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, a major author in the history of the UN reports on climate, who has published 532 scientific articles or papers, including 62 books or book chapters, and over 247 refereed journal articles. 
The travesty is maintaining public advocacy for a theory which in private you know has been disproved. Dr. Trenberth embodies the travesty.
The pause in warming, if it remains steady, or if temperatures fall, then the massive global warming industry will die, and the reputation of the leaders will be ruined.
“The tyranny of the experts is now crumbling,” said Andrew Bolt, columnist for the Herald Sun and Daily Telegraph. 
Big Media calls skeptics deniers. Big Media make opponents of a scientific hypothesis equal to the people who say Hitler did not kill Jews.
Academics who want to speak up don’t speak up because “dissent can be career-threatening.”  Skeptics are “cast into outer darkness and dismissed as ‘anti-science’ or a ‘denier.’” 
Something is driving the warming proponents which is overruling the scientific method. A billion-dollars-a-day of work is part of it. The power and the glory is part of it. The totalitarian nature of progressivism is part of it. My opinion is that the totalitarian instinct, the horrendous human trait given religious preeminence in the progressive faith, is now the guiding driver of proponents.
The confidence of the proponents should have been tempered by now after seeing the work their models have done, but their failure has had no effect on their opinion. Many of their predictions are now proven false. Their failed predictions have had no effect on their opinions.
“Al Gore claimed in his film An Inconvenient Truth that seas were rising so fast ‘that’s why the citizens of these Pacific nations have all had to evacuate to New Zealand’. … (but) in a British court case, Justice Michael Burton found ‘there is no evidence of any such evacuation having yet happened.’” 
In December 2008 Mr. Gore said the ‘entire North Polar ice cap will be gone in five years’.  “Ted Scambos, of the US Snow and Ice Data Centre, told the ABC there was ‘a very strong case that in 2012 or 2013 we’ll have an ice-free (summer) Arctic’.”  Ice covered 1.7 million square miles of Arctic in the minimum of 2015; the minimum being the period after summer temperatures have reduced the ice to its smallest footing. Eight years after his prediction, Mr. Gore is off by an ice sheet equal to six times the size of Texas.
Bertrand Timbal, of Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology, said in 2009 the rain there will never rain like it once did. “We are just not going to have that sort of good rain again as long as the system is warming up.” 
In 2010 and 2011 Australia had it wettest two-year period on record. In the story quoting Mr. Timbal, the lead paragraph said: “SCIENTISTS studying Victoria’s crippling drought have, for the first time, proved the link between rising levels of greenhouse gases and the state’s dramatic decline in rainfall.” 
If drought proves climate change, what does heavy rain prove? Did the newspaper print a story saying heavy rain proves there is no climate change?
In 2005 the IPCC said global warming would create 50 million climate refugees by 2010.  Have there been any climate refugees as of 2016?
“In 2000, Dr. David Viner of the Climatic Research Unit of Britain’s University of East Anglia claimed ‘children just aren’t going to know what snow is’.”  Then came the snow. “Five of the northern hemisphere’s six snowiest winters in the past 46 years have occurred since Viner’s prediction.”
If no snow proves climate change, what does heavy snow prove?
Will the planet heat dangerously and fast?
“Little likelihood exists that conceivable levels of human emissions will cause dangerous future warming,” said Mr. Carter, the former professor of earth sciences.  There is an “equally likely occurrence of global cooling” and cooling is more likely. 
“No unambiguous evidence exists for adverse changes to the global environment caused by human-related CO2 emissions,” said Mr. Carter. “In particular, the cryosphere (glacial ice) is not melting at an enhanced rate; sea-level rise is not accelerating; no systematic changes have been documented in evaporation or rainfall or in the magnitude or intensity of extreme meteorological events; and an increased release of methane into the atmosphere from permafrost or sub-seabed gas hydrates is unlikely.” 
In other words, “the impact of climate change will be small relative to the impacts of other drivers”  like the sun, ocean currents, and earth’s cycles.
Changes in temperature in the 10,000-year record and the 140-year record show that recent temperature changes are normal in magnitude. The 10,000-year record has a range of 3.74 Centigrade. The 140-year record has a range of 1.34 Centigrade. The magnitude of change in the long record is almost three times greater than the range in the short record. (Please see the chart: “The Banality of Climate Change. 140 Years of Climate Change and 10,000 Years of Climate Change”.)
“We forecast that global average temperatures will trend neither up nor down, but will remain within 0.5 °C (1°F) of the 2013 average,” said Kesten C. Green, Senior Research Associate of the Ehrenberg-Bass Institute, University of South Australia, and Senior Lecturer at University of South, and J. Scott Armstrong, of Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and an expert on forecasting. “There is neither need to worry about climate change, nor reason to take action.” 
“The cost of global warming that might result from human activities, as reported by the IPCC, is very small,” said Alan Moran of the Institute of Public Affairs. 
If we do continue to experience warming, it is likely to be beneficial. 
“The optimum CO2 content is more than 1,600 ppm (as compared with current content of 400 ppm).”  After warming “there is a huge increase in biodiversity” and “extinctions are universal in colder times.”  “All across the planet, the historical increase in the atmosphere’s CO2 concentration has stimulated vegetative productivity.”  “Global warming and its myriad ecological effects tend to foster the expansion and proliferation of animal habitats, ranges, and populations.” 
It’s possible we will experience planetary catastrophe, but “there is no scientific basis”  for predicting catastrophe, so “a policy of decarbonisation cannot possibly make sense,” especially given “the unequivocally adverse economic impact of the decarbonisation policy.” 
Even if it did make sense to limit carbon dioxide “there is no chance of any meaningful agreement being concluded”  by the important nations that must agree.
We are pursuing a policy that’s not needed for a group of nations which will never live by the terms required which, if they did agree, they would violate, and penalties cannot be enforced.
“The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing,” said Professor James Lovelock, the author of the Gaia hypothesis, who in 2006 predicted billions of deaths from climate change, and who now predicts that we cannot predict the climate’s changes. 
Climate science Professor Judith Curry, professor at the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, told the US Congress in 2014: “For the past 16 years, there has been no significant increase in surface temperature … The IPCC does not have a convincing or confident explanation for this hiatus in warming.” 
Something is missing from our consideration of dangerous manmade warming. It is now a billion-dollar-a-day industry. What could we use that money for that is more important than carbon dioxide’s influence on temperature?
Does everybody have clean water? Does everybody have a dry safe home? Is every person protected from heat and cold and rain? Do they eat well? Is the kitchen clean? Why does their home smell? Why are they burning manure on the stove? Why is the floor made of dirt? Do they have no shower here? No soap and hot water? No clean towels? Do the poor know what it’s like to get into a clean bed and go to sleep protected from the elements and noise and hunger? Can you imagine taking all of these good things away from hundreds of millions of poor people based on a guess?
We have a very scientific method for curing the condition of poverty. It has undergone rigorous testing in millions of experiments. This method to eradicate poverty is called capitalism. Cheap energy turbocharges capitalism. Expensive energy kills it.
“The greatest immorality of all concerns the masses in the developing world,” said Mr. Lawson, the writer.  The most effective form of disease is dire poverty. The impoverished person ends up “suffering all the ills that this brings, in terms of malnutrition, preventable disease, and premature death.”
A great effective weapon against poverty is energy. Fossil fuels make the world go around. Make it speed up. Make capitalism work. Make the poor wealthier.
“Energy is the most basic of economic resources behind wealth and living standards even though it represents only 5 per cent of GDP.”  The dangerous manmade global warming hypothesis demonizes the energy needed to fight poverty. By diverting us from the proven way to end poverty “global warming orthodoxy is not merely irrational. It is wicked,” said Mr. Lawson. 
Poverty is a real source of misery and death here and now. By blocking the advance of economies, our actions taken to combat dangerous manmade global warming may one day rival the great wars of the 20th Century as great totalitarian destroyers of wealth and happiness. The more successful the proponents of dangerous manmade global warming, the greater the misery they will bring to the world.
“The economically vulnerable have been pushed into fuel poverty,” said Mr. Plimer. “Vulnerable people die earlier, costs and unemployment increase and, in the Third World, such climate policies create the continuation of crippling poverty and unnecessary deaths, especially amongst women and children.” 
Ice is a rare rock. We expect ice on earth only 20% of the time. Since we live in a time which is comparatively cold in geologic history, shouldn’t we call warming normal? If two of three days in the last 10,000 years have been warmer than today, shouldn’t we expect warmer temperatures?
If we live in a time of carbon dioxide starvation, should we welcome the addition of carbon dioxide? It makes the plants grow. It makes the trees strong. It makes the animals and the forests come to life. Cold kills. Warmth gives life. If carbon dioxide brings life to life, do we need more carbon dioxide?
If carbon dioxide was a thousand times higher than today in the last two ice ages, how can we believe a miniscule addition of carbon dioxide will lead to dangerous warming? In the past we had extreme cold during the time we had extreme carbon dioxide. These facts make one skeptical the “manmade” carbon dioxide will be dangerous.
What about the other makers of weather? What about the sun, the oceans, the changes in the earth’s cycles? What about water and clouds? We have to know all of these things perfectly before we can precisely say what role carbon dioxide plays in temperature. Do we know all of these things well enough? Should we be skeptical of our knowledge, especially about the future?
We read about the arctic losing ice. We never read about the expansion of ice in the Antarctic. Should we trust the media if they tell us the bad all the time and the good never?
We read that 97 percent of scientists say man is responsible for a majority of global warming, but in fact only .5% percent of scientists gave that written opinion in the scholarly literature. The consensus is .5% not 97 percent. How do you believe anything the press says after that kind of lie?
The AP Style book says that the opponents of dangerous manmade global warming cannot call themselves skeptics because they don’t promote scientific inquiry or critical investigation. The AP pretends to know the minds of millions of persons, but it is impossible for them to know. The AP has also fully incorporated as true the 97 percent “consensus” falsehood by saying skeptics “reject mainstream climate science.”
The forces of darkness are taking arms in support of a sea of dishonesty. The attorney general of California has initiated a prosecution of the oil companies for their research and opinions on dangerous manmade global warming.
The attorney generals in New York, California, Massachusetts, and US Virgin Islands are conducting “an ongoing investigation into potential fraud by ExxonMobil” for “knowingly misleading the public and investors on the dangers of climate change.” 
A subpoena was issued for a decade of Exxon’s communications with over 100 academics, think tanks and universities.  The government attacks speech with the power of the state. This is how totalitarian society advances.
Big Media could care less. Writers have abandoned their first principle. Free speech is the first commandment for writers, or it was. Now it slows progressive ideology so free speech is abandoned. The progressive writers have abandoned free speech the same way scientific bodies have abandoned neutrality and the encouragement of individual opinion in the climate change debate. Group think is winning everywhere the progressives go. It’s what they do and who they are.
All of this has an obvious cause. We must remember that progressivism is a social disease, a group psychosis, and that the heart-and-soul of progressive thought is totalitarian domination. The out group members are deniers, social outcasts, monsters. Conservatives are Jews in Nazi Germany. Skeptics are conspirators who say Hitler did not kill the Jews.
How did progressives grow so immediately comfortable and capable in the most notoriously evil human conduct; the kind of frightening conduct which is warned about in every work of literature whose theme is man’s inhumanity to man?
The Global Warming theory, if it is disproved, will be the greatest crime ever committed against the poor and humanity. Its adherents have perpetrated shocking destruction within the scientific community by breaking centuries of principle requiring free thought, individual opinion, unswerving respect for dissent, and open-and-free publication of all data.
Even if carbon dioxide has little or no influence on weather or temperature, global warming may end up being the Joseph Stalin and the Mao Zedong of the 21st Century. It should be treated as a danger of the exact same nature except that the dead bodies are not as easy to count. The poor are spread all around the world and they will suffer and die everywhere, but many more will die if the progressives have their way on climate change.
The manufacturing of consent in the climate change debate proves that progressivism is the greatest threat to mankind in the 21st Century. Progressivism must be defeated and destroyed and ended. The massive destruction of wealth and encouragement of poverty by climate change proponents proves it.

UPDATE: For those few people that were confused about the footnote links being “broken” …here’s a bit of education. An essay written in Microsoft Word that has bookmarks for reference notes will not translate to WordPress because WordPress offers no support for in-page links, i.e. bookmarks. It’s been a long standing problem, people that write in MSWord often get this idea that their documents, including complex tables, math, overlays on images, etc, will automatically translate to the web…they won’t.
So to quiet the complaints for those that didn’t figure out that a link inside brackets like this  means look at the footnote  at the bottom, I’ve simply deleted all links on the essay, save for one.
I’ve also edited the text to read “carbon dioxide” rather than “carbon” to use accurate terminology.
