Said it before--its been a fraud!
.......................................Anthropogenic warming is not a conspiracy, but a huge promotion designed to compell more regulations and impose more taxation.
As in other threads about the subject, I have pointed out that parts of the promotion, Mann's "Hockey Stick, rendition of temperature history has even been accepted by IPCC as incorrect--I've called it fraudulent.
Then there is the chart of temp and amount of carbon, which has been composed that some 300,000 years is compressed into only about four inces of abscissa. This makes the big ups and downs through the regularly recurring ice ages and interglacials seem as if temp and carbon are closely related.
If you review the chart at smaller intervals --in the order of a few thousand years-- there is little correlation. If anything, rising temps lead the increase in carbon by some 400 to 800 years--as in over the past 1000 years.
The other point I use, but haven't seen published has to do with logic.
Industrialization arrived and temperatures have been going up since is the big pitch by the control freaks. Warming has been on for some 15,000 years on what could a reasonably normal interglacial. Within this was the remarkable cooling of the Little Ice Age following the Medieval Warming. Promoters had difficulty with the fact that the climate was warmer than recent in the 1200s, with a much lower population and no industralization. This inconvenient record was eliminated by Michael Mann. Even random numbers fed into his program would generate a "Hockey Stick".
On the logic, there has been a major blunder. In formal logic this is described as a primitive syllogism, which is the error of concluding that because two things occur at the same time, they are causally related.
Alex--does a crowing rooster cause the sun to rise in the countryside near you? That is the classic example of a primitive syllogism.
I am greatly relieved that those directly involved in one of the greatest frauds in history are not using their methodology to design airplanes or elevators.
On those who have been sucked in by the promotion, there are a couple of existing observations.
"Nonsense so blatent that only an intellectual could fall for it."
"Brainwashing in a culture of such gullibility that only a light rinse is required."
That pretty well covers the spectrum.
