Top Ten Reasons Climate Change is a Hoax

TopTenAlGore2

By Elmer Beauregard

The Senate voted this week on whether Climate Change is real or a hoax, I think it’s a hoax and here’s why.

I’m sure you’ve heard in the news that 2014 was supposed to be the hottest year ever. If it actually was “hottest year ever” you’d think all the terrible calamities that are supposed to happen would be happening now but instead the opposite is happening.

1. Record Ice

In 2014 there was record sea ice in Antarctica  in fact a global warming expedition got stuck in it. Arctic sea ice has also made a nice comeback in 2014. The Great lakes had record ice Lake Superior only had 3 ice free months in 2014. You’d think that in the hottest year ever that ice would be melting like Al Gore said.

2. Record Snow

2014 saw record snowfall in many areas, remember when they said that global warming would cause snow to disappear and children won’t know what snow is.

3. Record Cold

In 2014 we saw all kinds of cold records remember the Polar Vortex? You’d think that we’d be breaking all kinds of heat records in “the hottest year ever”

4. Oceans Are Rising Much Less Than Predicted

Al Gore predicted that oceans would rise 20 feet by 2100, it looks like were on track for about a foot. 80% of the tide gauges show less rise than the official “global average”. Many tide gauges show no rise in sea level, and almost none show any acceleration over the past 20 years.

5. Polar Bears Are Thriving

You’d think that Polar Bears would really be in trouble in 2014 “the hottest year ever” but they are thriving.

6. Moose Are Making A Comeback

A few years ago the moose population in Minnesota dropped rapidly and they immediately blamed global warming, then they did a study and found out it was actually wolves that were killing the moose. Wolves have been taken off the endangered species list and are now endangering other species so they opened a wolf hunting season in Minnesota and the moose are coming back. It turns out it had nothing to do with global warming in fact the years when the moose population declined were some very cold ones.

7. 99% of Scientists don’t believe in Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming

You’ve probably heard over and over that 99% of scientist believe in global warming well the opposite is true. That talking point came from a study where only 75 scientists said they believe in global warming on the other hand over 31,000 scientists have signed a petition saying they don’t believe in Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming.

8. Nature produces much more CO2 than man

In 2014 NASA finally launched a satellite that measures CO2 levels around the globe. They assumed that most of the CO2 would be coming from the industrialized northern hemisphere but much to their surprise it was coming from the rainforests in South America, Africa and China.

9. It Isn’t Actually the Warmest Year.

If you look at the satellite data 2014 was not the warmest year ever in fact there has been no global warming for over 18 years. The Reason they can say it’s the warmest year is because they are using the ground weather station data which is heavily influenced by the Urban Heat Island effect, many of which are near pavement. Even still they had to cherry pick that data to get at the warmest year ever and it is only the warmest by only two-100ths of a degree within a dataset that has a variability of a half of a degree. The fact they they had to ignore accurate data and fudge sketchy data to push their agenda proves (IMHO) that climate change is a hoax.

10. The Hypocrisy of the Main Players

One of the main reasons you can tell that global warming is a hoax is that the main purveyors of global warming live lifestyles opposite of what they preach, they all own multiple large homes and yachts and they fly around the world in private jets pushing their propaganda. Not to mention some people such as Al Gore actually profit from Carbon Taxes and other green energy laws. If they actually believed what they preached they would be leading quite different lives.

  • Greg

    I will tell you this. My father has been a climatologist for 45 years. He is considered one of the nations leading; however, he was let go from his government job 7 years ago. WHy? Because he was being paid to find a desired result that just wasn’t there. They use real facts to make it look tangible, and provide you with real models. The only problem is, the facts don’t support the overall theory – at all. In fact, the climate is doing now what it has done for thousands of years. Remember when people used to migrate? The climate does change, but there is a trade off.. One area may become cooler while another one becomes warmer. If humans could actually contribute to global warming, our amount when compared to nature’s amount is less than a drop in a swimming pool. Big politicians invest in solar companies, and wind companies, then they sell you on the “fact” of global warming. All the sudden the solar industries stocks are going while, and corrupt politicians are cashing in. They do this with everything. Open your eyes. My whole family is full of environmentalist, there is no reason that we would turn a blind eye to “global Warming” if it actually existed.

  • I’m not a scientist, I don’t have a Ph.D and I didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn last night but in my mind the climate IS changing, it’s called SEASONS…

  • phandoms 2713

    Are you kidding right now? So what if 2014 wasn’t the “warmest year” because 2016 sure is. I live in Colorado which is supposed to get all 4 seasons. Well we don’t seem to be getting winter or spring. (It snows in winter and It rains in spring if you don’t know. I wouldn’t be surprised if you didn’t since you believe what this article says.) Last year we would have had a snow day already, this year it’s only snowed twice and it melts by the next day. I literally woke up last night because my nose hurt from bleeding because it was so dry. Keep in mind, I have never had a bloody nose before. It has actually been dryer than EVER! And have you seen all the flooding and hurricanes. Yeah, more than ever. Which oh ya, sea levels rise. Just from my everyday life I have experienced global warming FIRST HAND. So if you don’t want to look at the obvious facts than fine. Dont. Hopefully your children and grandchildren don’t have to suffer from your mess.

  • TheFakeIsReal

    The first link: “record sea ice in Antarctica” in reason #1. If you only read the headline you might think that Nasa is saying we have more ice. But if you watch the video right below it or read the article it clearly says that : the Arctic has lost an average of 20,800 square miles (53,900 square kilometers) of ice a year: the Antarctic has gained an average of 7,300 square miles (18,900 sq km). Thats a negative slope of 2.84 miles^2 each year.

    It makes me sad that Nasa would be so careless to title any article in this way knowing that many people don’t bother to read the article which allows them to draw erroneous conclusions.

  • TheFakeIsReal
  • Kim Bruce

    The science of global warming is so flawed…It is impossible to predict weather using models. Weather is predicted using models…how is that working out? Duh!

  • The one that is correct

    Welp this is just dead wrong

    Comeback arguments based on reason number:

    1) Uh no look at graphs plus that was almost 3 years ago
    http://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/global-temperature/
    2) Cherrypicking data and its also almost 3 years old
    http://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/global-temperature/
    3) Still Cherrypicking data and its also almost 3 years old
    (notice recent years don’t support their model so they ignore it – (cherrypicking data))
    4) Yea but they’re rising – the human race hasn’t see anything like this while we’re taking data – the people modeling this is doing the best they can
    5) Well that’s just a bad fact – and there’s also POLAR BEAR CONSERVATION EFFORTS MORONS
    6) Yea still conservation efforts
    7) Well that’s just dead wrong – should I find links to studies that say the opposite? Okay:
    http://www.skepticalscience.com/global-warming-scientific-consensus-intermediate.htm
    http://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/
    —Also if you want to argue that it says “catastrophic” – that also says that scientists believe in global warming and the word “catastrophic” is relative – that means this point is completely subjective to whatever – it just says that 3% believes in catastrophic change – and i said above that “catastrophic” is relative
    8) https://www.skepticalscience.com/human-co2-smaller-than-natural-emissions.htm – you can say it produces more but it absorbs the co2 back through photosynthesis – our industrial system doesn’t reclaim the co2 it produces so it results in a buildup in co2
    9) http://climate.nasa.gov/vital-signs/global-temperature/ – look at the graph
    10) I mean kind of but how do they profit?

    If you don’t believe anything about this its okay – we’re all gonna eat it in about 20 years anyway – you can’t deny the truth. I invite you to argue but time will prove me correct

  • Blair Simpkins

    From the laws of thermodynamics it does not pass the smell test. The total mass of the atmosphere is 5×10^18 kg, so it would take 6×10^J to rise 1C. I find it impossible to believe that a 30% increase in CO2, of a gas that makes up on 13% of air, can cause that much energy to be emitted into the entire mass of air.

    • Actually CO2 only make up .04% of the atmosphere.

      • Blair Simpkins

        Sorry, I meant to say only 13% of green house gas. Water vapor makes up about 87%. The heating is most likely coming from the oceans which is a giant heat pump/sink.

  • Arsenio Band Ramirez

    Hottest temperature on Earth was 3,600° Fahrenheit, 800 million years ago during the period known as the Neoproterozoic. Now I’m laying in bed in my Pearl City home and the temperature is 71 degrees, and when I go to my Aiea home again it’s 71 degrees. There’s always been Climate Change since 4.5 Billion years ago and Earth has the abilities to regulate it self…

  • Jesus Nervous

    Climate change is corprate hoax.

  • Skas

    So you are saying we should not believe in scientists but we should believe you? Hahahaha

  • Knight Tyme

    Let’s, for a moment, accept that all of the previous cycles of the earth get warmer and cooler (before man kind built it’s 1st factory) can’t be factored into the discussion.
    Let’s assume, for the same moment or two, that CO2 is the sole reason for all of the planet’s temperature woes.
    Let’s assume, for the same (now cramped) couple of moments, that it matters not, that the argument keeps switching from warming to cooling, from melting to freezing from flooding to drought from crops failing to overgrowth.

    Finally let’s, for this now completely full couple of moments, accept that it matters not that the majority of the data collected was not designed to prove an agenda instead it’s an attempt to seek the truth.

    That all said and done…
    How does:
    a Carbon Tax help?
    a tax burden on the nations that could most solve the problem, help solve the problem?
    a tax exchange that enriches other countries that will, over time, turn into a industrious one (China) help?
    a tax that enriches a select few that control the exchange by take their sliver of the pie, help?
    Wouldn’t it seem much more logical to either give incentives to companies to develop alterative?
    If you used a tax, shouldn’t that tax go directly to that country’s alterative energy program designed to be later sold or even shared with the planet?

    Theses questions are intended to reveal the real agenda. The redistribution of wealth on a global scale while making multi-billionaires of an elite few. All the while suffering the average worker. Simply wake up and yes, follow the money.

    Science be damned.

  • MD9494

    1. The very first article reads “Studies show that globally, the decreases in Arctic sea ice far exceed the increases in Antarctic sea ice.”

    2. 2nd article reads “However, the amount of snow does not necessarily correlate with temperature. It simply needs to be near or below freezing for snow to fall. Temperatures that average 1-2 degrees F above normal over the globe can still support snow in many places. Furthermore, slightly warmer than normal temperatures increase atmospheric moisture content, elevating potential snow amounts where they occur.”

    3. again, read the actual article.

    4. again, read the actual article…..

    5./6. Polar bear populations have been in decline over the last 50 years, and what is this about Moose populations?

    7. this petition has long proved to be a hoax

    8.True, nature does produce much more CO2 – but according to every single figure and piece of data, notably looking at this figure here http://www.justfacts.com/images/globalwarming/ipcc_2001.png it is very clear that human impact is significant and accounts somewhere between 10-30% of CO2 emissions

    9. You are looking at one year, seriously? These trends are over decades and hundreds of years; due to earth’s rotation around the sun and other phenomena, temperature varies naturally on 1-2 year cycles.

    Okay here’s what I will say: Anybody reading The New York Times, watching too much mainstream news or posting “Now This” bullshit is probably just as ignorant of actual scientific data as “deniers.” Global Warming was manufactured by the media, and is grossly misunderstood by liberals and conservatives alike. There is a lot of money being thrown around and a lot of politics involved; I actually applaud those who choose to challenge the mainstream ideas of Climate Change; true science is skepticism.

    However, Global Climate Change has reached a scientific consensus, and it takes all of 5 minutes before debunking any article that claims to suggest otherwise.

    Remember that science is a process, and through this process, the only truth we have found is that we are always wrong about something. To inappropriately (yet metaphorically) apply, Heisenberg’s principle, one cannot observe without affecting the results.

    Some liberals listen too 🙂 just make sure you “climate deniers” give the same level of scrutiny to your articles as you do to ours

    I agree with you Elmer, l do the same as you and ran across an article by Nobel Laureate and there is countless others, but what l mean to say we have really been duped, great article by the way.

  • Dee Oldguy

    Those studying volcanoes have proven the more co2 and other gases are released into the atmosphere in one eruption than all man made gases combined, and there is at least one erupts every year. Also, we are producing more plant based foods than ever, using up vast qua ties of co2.

  • Chaz Bono

    the hottest day in US history was 100 years ago in Death Valley, the temperature there has never risen any higher over that 100 years in between etc, hoax.

  • Ross Lischka

    cellulose is the what a plant produces during the process of biosynthesis. Cellulose is what plants use to grow there stalks, and produce their vascular tissue. Biosynthesis uses, get this @85vintage:disqus , leftover carbon dioxide from the processes of photosynthesis, and cellular respiration. So actual, a plant literally uses carbon dioxide to CREATE ITSELF. So can you explain how plants use hardly any CO2 in there lives?

  • banzomaikaka

    climate change is real. scientists agree on that. What some scientists believe is that it’s not human caused. There’s compelling ‘evidence’ for the argument that it’s human caused. there’s also ‘evidence’ that human activity has nothing to do with it. However, if you look closely, you’ll see that the evidence for the latter argument comes in one way or the other from people invested in the exact activities pointed to as being the main culprits of climate change – people who can fabricate as many believable evidence as they can – and if you believe they wouldn’t do this, then, well, there’s not a lot of hope in convincing you.

  • Povel Vieregg

    Say I am open about the possibility of the theory of man made climate change being wrong. What I still have not understood is how could a global conspiracy like this ever happen. All major climate research organizations are behind this theory and so is most published peer reviewed papers in the field. Not just from organizations and people in the US but across the whole world. How did all these scientists and politicians all over the world get together and conspire to fool the public about this?

  • Subtle3ntropy

    Think of it this way. If oceans are hotter, it will produce more violent storms. More moisture in the air means hotter temperatures. More hurricanes and stronger snow storms.
    When it’s cold, it’ll be colder and when it’s hot, it’ll be hotter. In the end, the surface of the planet will be covered by storms.

    Record cold will be accompanied by record hot. When the rate of temperature change out pace evolution, wildlife will die out without human intervention.

    Record snowfall is to be expected, so does record melting of ice caps. They are not mutually exclusive.

    Endangered animals thriving is not proof that climate change isn’t real, for climate change isn’t the only factor. Reduce hunting, adapting, change in location can all contribute to population growth.

    Awareness =/= knowledge.

  • Sane Person

    As we’ve only been on the planet a couple thousand years, it’s impossible to say what is man caused and what is naturally caused. It’s all in God’s hands anyway, so worrying is needless. The devil has many fools fooled and in a panic.
    Liberalism…is cancer.

    Climate skeptics, please MOVE TO MIAMI BEACH if you’re so sure. As others flee Miami, you will be able to buy cheap oceanfront property. Put your money where your mouth is.

    Also, please BUY STOCK IN OIL COMPANIES. As others divest, you will be able to buy low. Show us how that works out and see if you prove us wrong.

    Also, please APPLY FOR JOBS AT OIL COMPANIES. As others shy away, there should be many more openings. Show us how that works out long-term.

  • Botiemaster

    You’re an idiot if you can’t see that liberals are pillaging your wallet and tax dollars, whether you’re too dumb to see it or you see it but allow it to happen because it’s another thing for you to use to argue about. Much like the theory of evolution, you need alot more than feels to turn that theory into fact. Here’s a hint: Just like evolution, global warming will forever remain a theory. You spend decades looking for that missing link. “I KNOW FOR A FACT my theory is true without a shred of evidence to prove me right. I just need to find that one piece of evidence that will rewrite the books!” It never comes around. 50 years after every single one of you idiots are dead and gone, people will still be in your place arguing how real global warming is, and not a damn thing in the world will have changed to either prove or disprove them. The only difference between evolution and global warming is one of these things are a hoax to make money off gullible liberals.

    It’s a hoax to milk dollar signs out of people. Face it, you’ve been had. But keep preaching how “it’s basically a fact” and I’ll keep driving my gas guzzler. I bet you do, too. “ooooooh maaaaaaaaan I need my car I mean I’ll sit here and debate global warming with these idiot non believers but at the end of the day me not using my car won’t save the earth sooooooooooo……”

    Fucking liberals.

  • Brianna Dufrene

    I strongly believe that climate change is a serious issue and something needs to be done about it now to make the world a better place for our future generations.

  • Al Gore made the case that there is a correspondence between global warming and an increased percentage of CO2 in the atmosphere. That’s true, but CO2 is the effect of global warming, not the cause. The increase in CO2 is the result of the oceans’, as they get warmer, losing some of their ability to dissolve CO2. “Man-made global warming” is all a big, big hoax! It’s an underhanded money/power grab. Environmentalists would have more effect in the long run if they would simply be honest instead of lying in order to get taxpayer dollars! Now their reputation is down the tubes. Who is going to take anything they say seriously?

  • Little Bill

    Okay I just there is so many things you just got wrong 1. Ask any scientist if they believe in global warming they do believe in it and it has been proven 2. You are just too afraid to admit it’s not in China or South America it everywhere here and now 3. You know the science behind it’s called the green house effect when the sun beams down on the earth to provide energy to plants after that it reflects out to space but CO2, H2O (Water Vapor), and AO2 capture these particles and keep them in the earth adding more heat to the earth. 4. You just got lectured by a 6th grade that knows more than you, Damn.

    Thanks for this list, i knew this was a hoax when I first heard of “climate change” when it was called “global warming” my last year in high school. It’s very simple to know that the biosphere absorbs carbon to keep a balance, so more carbon = more plants, duh. Turns out that this “climate change” lie is part of a taxation scheme to deny people access to resources and create a new “asset” known as “Renewable Energy Certificates” and bring people down under a “technocratic” system of worldwide oppression and poverty. Looks like it has failed, but people still are buying this climate change story, but I think more people are become aware that it’s a lie. Its mathematical premise was also just disproven by Lord Mockton.

      World Temps are up 1.19 C in just 125 yrs.

    Come forward two years. 2014, 2015 and 2016 were all record warm years. Antarctic sea ice is at record lows. As a professor and scientist, I agree with most other scientists that climate change is the most serious problem facing our country and the world.

  • emmet

    Temperature increase causes outgassing of CO2 from the oceans same way your soda fizzles when warm and calms down when cold. At 10 deg C water contains 2.3 grams of CO2 in 1,000cc of water. At 20 deg C it is 1.3 g per liter, or 47% loss. -A big variation going back and forth around the world’s oceans on annual cycle. Furthermore, the Golfstrom that brings warm water to upper Europe absorbs CO2 while cooling and sinking to return South in continuous manner. Whatever causes the temperature rise is immaterial when seen from this perspective. -There are several sources, all of them harking back to Sun activity and orientation of a particular geographic location during seasons of the year. To claim CO2 causes global warming is absurd, mixing cause and effect to accomplish some predestined goal that has nothing to do with reality.

      YOU prove the old adage that a little knowledge can do a lot of damage.

      You have a small amount of information about the COMPLEX equation…and muff it.

      (I have included Sources for YOU to Google and LEARN)

      1799
      ” ‘Climate Change’ was Postulated in 1799, Alexander von Humboldt.”
      as temperatures warmed. this was verified thru multiple historical records
      1811
      “Climate Changed Scientifically tied Global Warming & Human Activity by physicist & astronomer Simeon Denis Poisson, 1811….”
      from multiple historical records
      He lectured, extensively, on this threat by 1827 !
      1847
      “George Perkins Marsh (1801-1882) author of the 1847 lecture that predicted – “human-induced climate change” – from multiple historical records
      Scientists WERE ALREADY LECTURING ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING and the resulting Climate Changes, in 1847 !
      1861
      “The heat-trapping nature of carbon dioxide & other gases was experimentally demonstrated & *PROVED* in the mid-19th century.”
      “The greenhouse gas qualities of carbon dioxide have been known for over a century.
      In 1861, John Tyndal published laboratory results
      identifying carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas that absorbed heat rays (longwave radiation).
      Since then, the absorptive qualities of carbon dioxide have been more precisely quantified by decades of laboratory measurements
      (Herzberg 1953, Burch 1962, Burch 1970, etc).

      These same fundamental experiments & equations
      are * Challenged & Replicated

        I am quite happy with global warming, and sorry to see it evolve into climate change with another cold snap lasting few centuries on the horizon, rickcool as you call yourself. You obviously spent a lot of time preparing your post and you deserve credit for your effort. Human and cattle CO2 contribution does play some role, and I see it as a good thing, not a calamity IPCC and their stooges are projecting. IPPC stated mission is to blame humanity for all of CO2 ‘evil’ influence, totally ignoring the reality of the Earth situation. At any time on Earth, about 40 volcanoes are actively spewing aerosols. One good size volcano eruption of Tambora size can precipitate another year without summer and starvation of massive proportions on the top of already developing another Mauner minimum.

          THE WORD “Evil” was not used by IPCC.

          Humans DUMP more than 135 times MORE CO2 into the atmosphere than
          ALL OF THE VOLCANOES on EARTH…..each and EVERY YEAR !

          THE Maunder Minimum was only .12% of the energy per year that Global Warming is generating per year.

          A good Questions to ask is what ended the 7500 year temperature descent into the next ice age which ended
          about 1750 ? ? ?
          .
          We are just started into the global warming that was predicted in 1965 to start showing its ugly side by 2015.

          10 of the 15 busiest Hurricane seasons have occurred since 2000.
          Storms world wide have doubled.
          Flooding Rain Events have more than doubled
          Droughts have doubled in number and nearly tripled in square miles affected
          Heat waves have doubled.
          Deserts have doubled in square miles.
          THE 270 largest Fresh Water Lakes are warming TWICE as fast as the atmosphere…doubling Algae Blooms and Fish Die offs.

          One good size volcano eruption of Tambora size can precipitate another year without summer and starvation of massive proportions on the top of already developing another Mauner minimum.

          A large volcanic eruption obscuring sunlight is not abated by more GHGs in the atmosphere.

          You should try understanding some science.
