Climate change nothing but a scam

Dear editor,

As Canada’s new Liberal Prime Minister Trudeau prepares to take himself and a bunch of his fellow worshipers of the global warming religion on a taxpayer funded junket to Paris, at a cost that will make Bev Oda’s $16 glass of orange juice seem like the bargain of the century, and a carbon footprint that would make even Al Gore and David Suzuki blush, comes this little tidbit: NASA reports the amount of ice in the Antarctic INCREASED by an average of 100 billion tons per year every year between 1992 and 2008, the last year of the study period.(go.nasa.gov/1RFtufm). Antarctic ice extent has been at record highs three of the last four years.

For at least the last 20 years we have been told that the supposed loss of Arctic ice is proof of global warming, er, climate change and we must pay huge carbon taxes to stop it. So, does the increase in Antarctic ice mean we now have global cooling? Umm no. Why? Because 97 per cent of climate scientists receiving billions of taxpayer dollars annually to do studies about global warming, er, climate change that show the need for more taxpayer funded billions of dollars for more studies on global warming, er, climate change say so.

The climate is always changing and thank goodness for that. Otherwise Canada might still be buried under a mile of ice as it was 12,000 years ago. As a cold country with a short growing season,  it’s not clear to me why a warmer climate would be a bad thing. We could feed even more of the world.

However there is no evidence showing human CO2 emissions are changing the climate. There are only a bunch of computer models that can’t and don’t correctly predict the temperature or climate yesterday, or last week, or last month, or last year, or the last decade, much less 20, 50, or 100 years into the future.

This is a scam designed to transfer vast sums of money from taxpayers in developed countries to the budgets of corrupt UN bureaucrats and the Swiss bank accounts of Third World dictators, after some skimming by the “scientists” and politicians involved of course. Follow the money. The Chretien Liberal sponsorship scandal will seem like a rounding error compared to this.
