We will restore science to its rightful place –President Barack Hussein Obama, Inauguration day January 20, 2009
Right now all the science listened to by the Left is biased. From stem cell research to Global warming it’s all tainted science. Tainted by personal prejudge and hidden agendas. This is the science that Barack Obama wishes to restore to its rightful place.
What passes for science in these areas is actually akin to the massive financial bailouts that banks are receiving from the government. Only the scientists that work for the politically correct Left structure their findings to receive huge amounts of scientific bailouts a.k.a. government grant moneys along with government and public approval.
These university and government supported scientists always clamber for big government dollars by producing so called scientific findings that drives Liberal policy and Liberal agenda thereby satiating what Liberal politicians want. It is this science that Obama wishes to put the full force of the U.S. government behind.
Consider this, Christopher Booker of Europe’s Telegraph online writes, “Nobody listens to the real climate change experts.” In Booker’s report are outlined two Global warming conferences that were held recently. One held in Copenhagen, billed as "an emergency summit on climate change," the other held in New York, organised by the Heartland Institute under the title Global Warming: Was It Ever Really A Crisis? (see story) and (see Heartland)
The Copenhagen event was a gathering of government and UN IPCC funded scientists [a]s one of the organisers put it, "this is not a regular scientific conference: this is a deliberate attempt to influence policy.". There was wall to wall media coverage there.
I did a google search, “global warming conference” and the Copenhagen event was the one that came up almost exclusively.
The New York event was a gathering of world renowned scientific leaders on the topic of climate. President Vaclav Klaus of the Czech Republic, the acting head of the European Union, and Professor Richard Lindzen of MIT, perhaps the most distinguished climatologist in the world gave the opening addresses. Yet there was next to no media coverage at this event.
As for the science, the Copenhagen group has based it’s entire global warming scare on computer models that have been proven faulty to inaccurately wrong. Yet this is the “science” that world leaders crave because they want to use this “science” to create new revenue streams of taxation on CO2 emissions for the new Global rule, a global tax on the entire world to go to unelected officials at the U.N. That’s taxation without representation, now just where have we heard of that before?
In the New York meeting it was shared that, [s]ea levels are not shooting up but only continuing their modest 3mm a year rise over the past 200 years. The vast Antarctic ice-sheet is not melting, except in one tiny corner, the Antarctic Peninsula. Tropical hurricane activity, far from increasing, is at its lowest level for 30 years. The best correlation for temperature fluctuations is not CO2 but the magnetic activity of the sun. (For an admirable summary of proceedings by the Australian paleoclimatologist Professor Bob Carter, Google "Heartland" and "Quadrant").
Gee can’t let that scientific information get out it might mess up the plans for global taxation.
Brooks concludes, Yet the terrifying thing, as President Klaus observed in his magisterial opening address, is that there is no dialogue on these issues. When recently at the World Economic Forum in Davos, he found the minds of his fellow world leaders firmly shut to anything but the fantasies of the scaremongers.
As I said in my own modest contribution to the conference, there seems little doubt that global warming is leading the world towards an unprecedented catastrophe. But it is not the Technicolor apocalypse promised by the likes of Al Gore. The real disaster hanging over us lies in all those astronomically costly measures proposed by politicians, to meet a crisis which in reality never existed.
If president Obama is actually going to restore science to its rightful place we would see more scientists with views against the accepted political trending supporting the disproved theory of global warming. Not the blind and closed minded acceptance of a nonscientific failed theory of anthropogenic global warming which the Obama administration presently fully supports.
