Ganahl Debunks the Global Warming Hoax

Published in The Other Paper, Columbus OH –  

Just when you thought it was safe to assume that everyone had pretty much accepted climate change and moved on, here comes rogue NBC 4 chief meteorologist Jym Ganahl to blow your freaking mind.

“Just wait 5 or 10 years, and it will be very obvious. They’ll have egg on their faces,” Ganahl said this week of global warming advocates.

The “global warming hoax” is an obvious fallacy, Ganahl said in a YouTube video posted Jan. 23.

In the video, taped at a meet-up of the Ohio Freedom Alliance, Ganahl chats with Dave, the self-proclaimed No. 1 biker talk show host on radio, and—still odder—Robert Wagner, a former candidate for the 15th congressional district.

Although global warming is clearly “a fallacy,” Ganahl told the dudes, “It is remarkable how many people are being led like sheep in the wrong direction.”

Evoking Orwellian mind-control power of the media, Ganahl said it’s remarkable how easy it is to panic the unwashed masses.

Ganahl continued to evangelize offline this week.

Sunspots—and not carbon emissions—are to blame for the slow warming of the globe, Ganahl said. “It has nothing to do with us.”

“When there are sunspots, like freckles on the sun—dark spots—these are like turning on a furnace and the earth warms. When there are no sunspots, it is like the furnace is in standby and the earth cools.

“I have always thought we should celebrate and be thankful we live in a time when it is warmer, not curse it,” Ganahl said. “It allows us to grow food and feed the population—and the warming is slow and we can adapt to it.”

Cold, on the other hand, is to blame for a whole host of worldly disasters, including death of the Aztecs, the Vikings, and who knew?— the bubonic plague.

“Instead of screaming global warming, we should be preaching global cooling,” he said.

But with a new president who apparently buys into the whole carbon emission demonizing scam, Ganahl said, “It’s very scary,” and admittedly “very difficult,” to fight the mob mentality.

  • It might be noted that the carbon credit is part of the scheme, ala the Rev. Al Gore of the Socialist camp, unbelievably a Nobe Prize recipient for Junk Science advocacy. And the beauty of this scheme is that after the carbon credit and the other clap trap that will cost tax paying citizens in all of the countries that fall for this – will be credited when it appears that global warming never arrives.
    Also, it might be noted that ancient texts describes the many famine and drought periods in Africa, which much of the video footage used to back up the climate hoax is used, as well as the periodic melting and freezing of the Arctic. In one case last year, it was discovered that the area that was a fly over by Gore and crew to take photos of evidence of melting was caused by an underwater volcanic activity in that particular area.
    And the photos of the polar bears “stranded” on an ice flow – the photographer who took the picture found out her photos were being used as propaganda to boost the belief in those who follow the Gore climate alarm cult stated that the bears had purposefully swam to that flow were lounging around and then swam back to shore.
    Everyone could laugh all of this off, but when government gets involved it always ends up in wasting the taxpayers funding – and an excuse to increase or create a new tax base. Meanwhile, a new business will form related to the carbon credit scheme and Al Gore and his investor friends will make a killing. At the working class of people’s expense. This is funding that could be used for real issues and problems facing America and the industrial nations, as well as those Third World nations struggling to improve their conditions.
    One would think that humans would fear another major Ice Age because if that occurred many regions would no longer be able to produce food outside of greenhouses, and thus create a major famine condition, not to mention other problems.
    Have the common people become so indoctrinated that they would allow their government to go along with this nonsense? Anyone who voted for a candidate at any level of government who backs up the climate change hoax is a fool – and viewing the policies of those elected recently, we have become a nation of fools and uneducated brainwashed peasants created by any Utopian socialist society. Americans, as well as the folks in Europe better wake up before parasites like Gore become so powerful they cannot be stopped. Our educational institutions have already been overrun by individuals like these who also approve and publish the textbooks that teach garbage like global warming.

    • J.M.

      You spew as much bologna as Gore does. Both sides of the the climate change issue are being sensationalist and exxaggerating the real data. It is scientific fact that the climate is changing AND that humans have at least in some way contributed, however, the real affect is not nearly as bad as Greenpeace claims it will be. Furthermore, there is a natural component to climate change, but it is not the only factor. Deforestation and air pollution have contributed. The reality is most likely in the middle.

      And anyway, no matter what the cause is, global climate change IS a problem that should be dealt with. There is too much at stake for precautions not to be taken. We MUST protect against biodiversity and habitat losses due to climate change if we want to enjoy Earth in the future.

      Its time everyone took some personal responsibility and instead of whining about socialism and “uneducated masses”, made strides to do what they can on their own. Its not the government’s job to tell us exactly how to live or to tell us if something is bad. Grow up and take matters into your own hands. Stop complaining about how terrible everyone else is, and start focusing on how you can do some real good for everyone around you.

      Some questions for you to ponder: Would it hurt you to cut down on the amount of gas you use? It would definately save you money and devreased air pollution is always a good thing. Would it ruin your life to pay a few dollars more in taxes if it leads to new technologies like hydrogen and cleaner nuclear power? Would it kill you to conserve paper and wood products in order to curtail the devastating amount of deforestation going on in Washington state and South America? Is it so imperative to your life to be wasteful that you can do nothing to help make Earth a better place to live?

      I’m sorry if I offended you in any way, I just wanted to point out that arguing about the cause is worthless and a waste of time. Go DO something if you want to make the world a better place, don’t just whine and bicker online about what is to blame.

      P.S. Calling something socialist without real backing to your claim does nothing to strengthen your argument. and I due realize this post is very late in regards sto the others, but I needed to express my thoughts regarding your sensationalist mumbo jumbo. Thank you all. Have a nice day.

    I bet this guy and wheather channel founder John Colman would get along famously.
    I came across this article about predictions of environmental disasters that were wrong. It seems to backup what Mr. Ganahl is saying. These are from Earth Day 1970, 38 years ago. http://www.washingtonpolicy.org/pressroom/pressreleases/4_22_2008.html

  • I was interested to find this blog. 20 years ago I had a book published on different economic concepts to point the way to a sustainable world economy. Someone who liked the book contacted me this year to suggest that I update and re-publish it as a blog. She set up the blog, and the book is now complete on the blog in a series of postings. There are now also additional pieces on global warming and other subjects. Here is the link:

    I tried to send my message to my politicos. However, it seems that in the State box it said Minnesota. I’m from Wisconsin. I tried to remove Minnesota and replace it with Wisconsin and Minnesota did not delete and allow me to put Wisconsin, let alone any other state but Minnesota. Please advise when this is fixed as I want to e-mail my representative and senators.

  • Climate Scientist

    You are just as extreme as the doomsday scientists who say we need to stop CO2 production immediately. Why can’t anyone admit that the science is complex, and no one actually knows how the hell humans are or are not affecting our global energy balance? The answer is not as neat as either you or any other extremist (pro or anti warming) would like it to be.

  • “I tried to send my message to my politicos. However, it seems that in the State box it said Minnesota. I’m from Wisconsin.”

    Sorry for the difficulty and confusion. Global Climate Scam’s parent organization is Minnesota Majority. While the topic of global warming (and hense, this ste) has global reach, we are focued on Minnesota Policy and we aren’t equipped to support action in all 50 states, or other countries. Thanks for trying to take action, though. Poke around and I’m sure you can find a national or Wisconsin-based organization that can provide similar contact tools.

  • Neil F.

    Climate Scientist:
    You are correct sir! However, because the voices crying about AGW are so loud and extreme, they require extreme opposition. Your position on the fence with your quiet sense making will not sway or deter these lunatics. The only way to do that is to get in their faces and scream at the top of your lungs that they’re wrong, and shred their evidence to pieces.
    I would love it if your approach would work, but it will not. I would love to sit on the fence with you and have an honest debate about it. All the while the Leftist media in this and other countries will be brainwashing people that there is a coming catastrophe and the only way to avoid it is to live in huts and crap in the woods. I hope your comfy up there.

    You know, I kept hearing bloggers mention this German research and NASA research on the Sun and the fact that it’s so much ‘hotter’. And thus, blaming it for the Global warming. So I went searching and reading. Here’s the actual press releases from those organizations:

    Link

    http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2003/17jan_solcon.htm

    As an educated person, I read through what the actual scientists had to say after reviewing their own research. Seems that the sun has ‘stabilized’ in the last thirty years, yet global average temperatures have continued to increase:

    http://data.giss.nasa.gov/gistemp/2008/

    http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v457/n7228/full/nature07669.html

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7461707.stm

    So both sets of scientists have concluded that the sun has a minimal effect on global warming trends.

    And while 2008 was ‘cooler’ than 2007. It was still far above the average for the last one hundred years:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7329799.stm

    Yes, I would love it if it was a myth. But when I actually READ what you guys take ‘sound bytes’ out of in order to make your case of fraud, I realize that you are misrepresenting the actual facts and turning them around. Show me some actual atmospheric measurements that support your case instead of using statements out of context – from research which actually SUPPORTS the global warming theory! I’m eagerly waiting for the proof!

  • The hypothesis that the sun isn’t a driving force in climate has been debunked.

    Hmm. GISS, The Journal Nature, and the BBC. What is it about those three sources?…. Oh yeah, they’re all pro AGW biased.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Hi Dan- you still suck.

  • Now, you see… This is why Rob is only borderline welcome here and has had his commenting privileges suspended in the past. Besides using a phony email, his past history of posting comments using multiple aliases to try to bolster the perception of agreement with him (very childish), he resorts to profanity and statements like the above. Let this serve as an example of behavior that is not welcome here. Disagreement is fine. Debate is encouraged, but it must be kept civil, and on topic.

  • Neil F.

    Dan: Rob is the perfect example of the kind of brainwashed sheeple that we are dealing with. He toes the party line. He’s a good Liberal. He lies!
    I think he is probably a 16-17 year old. He may be older, but that is the maturity level he displays.
    But I think it’s good that he likes to post here. He illustrates the opposition well, and frankly, makes this less of an echo chamber.
    So I say let him post what he wants. You can edit out the nasty stuff.
    Take for example the above post “Hi Dan- you still suck.” You could always edit out the “- you still suck.” to say “you still rock!” or “you’re so right” or you could just drop the attack and let it just say ” Hi Dan!”
    I think things like that would encourage the boy to either keep it civil, or leave permanently. After all it worked for me. After I suggested to someone that they could shove the communist manifesto up their ###, you edited that out. After that I knew not to write such things.

    Fundamentally our system of fairness is based on the idea that there are two sides to every story. A person that is accused of something is allowed to have an advocate (Attorney) and is allowed to give their side of the story besides only hearing from the accuser (Prosecutor). It seems that those on the left want to deny that right and would rather we listen only to their side asking us to believe that anyone that disagees with them is bad, paid off etc. Rational Intellegent people will gladly listen to both sides of a story (argument). If that is done in the case of global warming, that is really give a listen to both sides and get several perspectives you can only come up with one conclusion. There was global warming but it was not caused by man. It is cyclical and the warming cycle is over. CO2 is a necessary gas and plants, trees, grass thrive on it. As a wise man once said to me. Don’t believe me check it our for yourself and be thorough.

    Terry: Well put!

    Well, it is 2014 now, those “5 or 6 years on when warmists will have egg on their faces”, and global warming has become only more obvious.

    The deniers, such as are on this page, are likely not ever going to change their minds. What I do find odd however, are the assertions that “the mindless masses are eating it up” – in fact, from my point of view as a warming alarmist, the public is NOT getting disturbed about the lack of action to reduce emissions.. most of the mindless masses seem to prefer to pretend that there is no problem.

    The evidence now, in 2014, includes the first signs of RUNAWAY GLOBAL WARMING – the clouds of methane rising out of the Arctic Oceans as methane clathrates [frozen pools of methane at the bottom of the oceans] MELT due to the warmer waters in the Gulf Stream enter the Arctic Oceans.

    Not yet a factor is the tundra methane that will soon start to be released.

    These two sources of methane, plus the increased Albedo effect of sun energy being absorbed where it used to be reflected

    Also, just yesterday [May 12 2014] the news that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet has become detached from the land-based ice and is now a huge floating iceberg “the size of Saskatchewan”.

    The IPCC reports are woefully inadequate – missing the “worst case scenarios” constantly – on the short side. Things are much worse than they predict. We will be seeing +10oC temperature rises where the IPCC predicts +2oC.

    So, will any of you deniers REPENT?? It would help the cause a lot if you could sincerely admit your understandable mistake – there has been a lot of uncertainty and misinformation out there, mostly from the fossil fools of the oil and gas industry, and you can surely be forgiven, certainly from yours truly….

    • Well this post is 5 years old. How much warming has happened since then? And are you talking about methane hydrates? A clathrate is like a lattice, or net like structure, I don’t know how you get a “pool” of clathrates. Were you aware of this study? http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/01/140102142008.htm

      “The reasons for their occurrence were still unclear but one hypothesis was that global warming might cause the dissolution of gas hydrates. Over the past years, comprehensive investigations by an international team of researchers led by scientists from GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel have now shown that it is very likely that the gas flares are caused by natural processes.”

      “One of the most obvious assumptions was that the increasing global warming has already extended into these regions of the North Atlantic. However, the investigations partly carried out with the German research submersible JAGO, pointed clearly to natural causes. “On one hand, we have found that the seasonal variations in temperature in this region are sufficient to push the stability zone of gas hydrates more than a kilometre up and down the slope,” Professor Berndt explains. “Additionally, we discovered carbonate structures in the vicinity of methane seeps at the seafloor,” Dr. Tom Feseker from MARUM adds. “These are clear indicators that the outgassing likely takes place over very long time periods, presumably for several thousand years,”-”

      So, sorry that theory is cut to ribbons.
      No repentance is necessary because we are correct, and you are incorrect, except that there is a lot of uncertainty and misinformation out there. You are right about that. But there are worse things than misinformation out there like disinformation, and outright lies. And they come from your side, not ours.
