Essentially science has been corrupted to serve a political agenda and all attempts by physical scientists to expose the fraudulent nature of this anthropogenic (human caused) global warming (AGW) have been foiled by a rather vicious well funded environmentalist propaganda campaign of misinformation and intimidation which has left the public and our political leaders with the false impression that AGW is scientifically valid and backed up by scientific evidence when not a single piece od evidence in support of the ludicrous notion that CO2 emissions from the increased use of fossil fuels is causing catastrophic global warming. (There has been zero net global warming since 1997 in spite of the 46% increase in CO2 emissions since 1997)
As a Geophysicist I am fully aware of how the fabricated climate models were used to create a crisis where none was physically possible but to explain this to the public requires that public has knowledge which is generally not the case.Read more ›
In “The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science”, Dr Tim Ball does an excellent job explaining how and why the massive deception behind catastrophic man-made global warming (climate change) alarmism was conceived and achieved, and how the tentacles of corruption in support of this deception grew and spread like cancer.
Dr Ball reveals how the influence of one man was able to bring this issue to life, ensuring that an engineered momentum behind the issue would be sustained into the future. It is a story of how and why climate science has been corrupted in pursuit of an environmental dream that evolved into a political agenda. It reveals an appalling situation of people engaged in grossly misleading and deceptive conduct without proper accountability and adequate independent oversight.
Everyone, especially politicians, should read his book. Even Prince Charles!
For more than a decade, The Heartland Institute has tried to explain to the public, in courteous terms, that the idea of a human-caused global warming catastrophe is a delusion that should not be allowed to waste the world’s economic resources through arrogant efforts to alter the planet’s climate. Tim Ball, Ph.D., takes up the issue with strong words. He argues, with overwhelming evidence, that in fact the global warming debate in the halls of science has been an unmitigated fraud perpetrated by people who no longer have the right to be called scientists. Their collective goals have been to alter society radically while enriching themselves, he argues.
Each of the book’s 13 chapters opens with a picture of a major player in this historical drama of the corruption of climate science. A few are heroes, such as Richard Lindzen, Michael Crichton, and Vaclav Klaus, but most are villains, such as Maurice Strong, Paul Ehrlich, James Hansen, Michael Mann, Phil Jones, and Al Gore.
The book is a history of the people and groups who used unwarranted fear of human-caused climate change to undermine science by influencing governments and the private sector to spend vast sums of money on scientists who agreed to climb aboard the global warming gravy train. It also describes the character assassination and dearth of support directed toward those who resisted.
Ball begins correctly at the modern beginning of stifling environmentalism, Paul Erhlich’s egregious and fallacious 1967 book, The Population Bomb, followed by the 1972 Club of Rome report, both of which preached population growth must be stopped or our world was doomed.Read more ›
