Internet Forces Global Warming into Retreat?

Editorial By Anthony Wile

Principia-Scientific.org is a site aimed at restoring legitimate scientific principles to the world. On its front page you'll find exposes of the "fossil fuel" fraud (we've written a lot about that) and, of course, global warming, among other rebuttals of "dominant social themes."

Principia Scientific and other such websites are doing important work to support and buttress the scientific method, which is surely under attack in this day and age. This phenomenon is little commented on, even in the alternative press, and so I want to take the time in this column to do so.

Nothing is much more important, in my view, than maintaining and supporting the validity of the scientific method, the idea of producing verifiable information that can be used to facilitate real social and cultural progress.

And the good news is that this website is only one of many aimed at debunking incorrect information that circulates around the world today and is too often used to create certain kinds of political consensus.

In fact, these themes – or memes – are generated by those who want to further their world control and are using various international organizations like the United Nations, World Bank and IMF to do so. In order to actuate such promotions, you need a crisis. Enter global warming, Peak Oil, food and water scarcity, etc.

Anything that gets people riled up and calling for expanded government intervention and "leadership" from sociopathic politicos and other rulers is to be utilized for this purpose. When a crisis isn't available, one is made up. And most of them are made up, if not all.

We don't need endless amounts of evidence to make this claim. We simply need what the Internet provides, which is a devastating portrayal of undeniable mechanical meretriciousness. Lies, in other words.

The Internet is a miracle because in one day you can look at as many articles and videos as you might be able to find in a year, pre-technology. Obscure articles, original source material and rare books are all available despite the best efforts of various gatekeepers to scour the Internet of material that contradicts the common wisdom.

Today, for instance, Principia Scientific is featuring an article entitled "Exposed: Academic Fraud in New Climate Science Consensus Claim." The article begins:

Authors of a new climate science consensus study trumpeted by mainstream media hacks for "proving" that most scientists blame humans for global warming are today being accused of fakery. Uproar ensued just days after publication of a controversial paper, 'Quantifying the consensus on anthropogenic global warming in the scientific literature.'

Experts whose work was cited in the paper by lead author, John Cook ... are aghast that their work has been used to justify far-fetched claims that there exists a "97% consensus" among scientists regarding human-caused global warming. Among those upset scientists cited in the new paper is Dr. Craig Idso. Idso reacted: "That is not an accurate representation of my paper."

Once again, we have "evidence" that proves not to stand up to scrutiny. It is an overwhelming pattern that the Internet provides to those who want to look. Anyone who recalls the global warming scandals of three years ago will grant that this particular alarmist orientation is truly and even pathologically questionable. At the time, a post at skeptical ClimateDepot.com explained,

Even the usually reliable news media has started questioning the global warming claims. Newsweek Magazine wrote in May 2010 about the "uncertain science" and how "climate researchers have lost the public's trust" from a "cascade of scandals" from the UN IPCC. Newsweek compared the leaders of the climate science community to "used-car salesmen. "Once celebrated climate researchers are feeling like the used-car salesmen" and the magazine noted that "some of IPCC's most-quoted data and recommendations were taken straight out of unchecked activist brochures, newspaper articles...Just as damaging, many climate scientists have responded to critiques by questioning the integrity of their critics, rather than by supplying data and reasoned arguments." For full list of Climategate related scandals See: Climate Scandals: List Of 94 Climate-Gates — 94 climate-gates total — 28 new gates — 145 links to reports with details.

This excerpt provides us with an important observation. The UN's IPCC is supposedly the leading authority on global warming but it turned out that much of the data and reports offered to the world's scientific community by the IPCC were simply lifted from newspaper and magazine reporting and positioned to suggest these provided a scientific foundation for global warming when they did not.

A scandal of this size, showing that a good deal of IPCC documentation was worthless, would have sunk almost any other hypothesis. But we do not live in a scientific age and the aim and intention of global warming is political.

Those devoted to propagating this meme want to use global warming – now renamed climate change – as a way of controlling people's actions and access to energy. The goal, apparently, is to create even more binding globalist structures that can be used to justify further internationalist activism. It is a closed loop that is supposed to feed on itself until the infrastructure of world government is firmly emplaced ... or so it seems.

What these efforts amount to, and there are many of them that the Internet has blessedly exposed, is the determination to replace science with propaganda. Even the most powerful of factual observations are to be ignored if they contradict the dominant social themes of the day.

How else can we explain the total lack of publicity surrounding most of the factual findings that show conclusively that promotions like global warming are inaccurate and not founded on anything remotely resembling science?

For instance, Principia Scientific also published an article entitled "New Discovery: NASA Study Proves Carbon Dioxide Cools Atmosphere." Here's how it began:

... A recent NASA report throws the space agency into conflict with its climatologists after new NASA measurements prove that carbon dioxide acts as a coolant in Earth's atmosphere. NASA's Langley Research Center has collated data proving that "greenhouse gases" actually block up to 95 percent of harmful solar rays from reaching our planet, thus reducing the heating impact of the sun.

The data was collected by Sounding of the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry, (or SABER). SABER monitors infrared emissions from Earth's upper atmosphere, in particular from carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitric oxide (NO), two substances thought to be playing a key role in the energy balance of air above our planet's surface.

NASA's Langley Research Center instruments show that the thermosphere not only received a whopping 26 billion kilowatt hours of energy from the sun during a recent burst of solar activity, but that in the upper atmospheric carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide molecules sent as much as 95% of that radiation straight back out into space. The shock revelation starkly contradicts the core proposition of the so-called greenhouse gas theory which claims that more CO2 means more warming for our planet.

See where this leads? If there is a buildup of greenhouse gases – surely doubtful to begin with – it would have an effect that is opposite of what the proponents of global warming claim.

The calculated divergence of factual conclusions from scientific methodology is (is there another way to put it?) one of the great crimes of the modern era. What was once accepted as fact – that disinterested observation of phenomena could yield valuable information – has been replaced by willful statements supporting certain agendas.

Almost all important science seems increasingly tainted this way. Whether one is investigating the potential harmful evidences of vaccines, the possibility of various kinds of fundamental alternative energy or, of course, climate change itself, the determining factor seems to be whether or not the findings support further globalist activism.

So congratulations are in order when it comes to websites like Principia Scientific and others that have identified the Big Lies of our times and are determined to do something about them. This is one of the most important activities we can pursue as our cultures become more fractured and confused.

Increasingly, the dissemination of fear-based scarcity information as fact has been greeted with pushback on the 'Net. We've covered this phenomenon for years and watched how it has effectively eroded even the most determined inaccuracies. We have even taken the opportunity to name it as our reporting has evolved.

And so I say, "Principia Scientific," welcome to what we call the Internet Reformation. You are but one courageous voice among many, and that in itself is a hopeful sign. Much has been accomplished, though there is, of course, much more to do.

Reestablishing science and the validity of the scientific method is not an easy effort but it is one of the great and compelling tasks of our time and worth fighting for. The West's quality of life and retention of prosperity in part depends on the outcome of this struggle.
