Figures don’t lie – but people do!

(Easter weekend blog)

BBC’s Soviet-style propaganda?

I admit I didn’t watch the whole of the BBC’s dreadfully misleading supposed documentary “Climate Change – the facts”. I just couldn’t stomach so much misleading BBC progressive woke propaganda. After all, during my youth I spent a bit of time in the Soviet Union and so saw enough garbage propaganda to last a lifetime.

There were so many things one could criticise about the programme:

  • why didn’t the programme mention the effect on the Earth’s climate of variations in solar activity?
  • why didn’t the programme mention the effect on the Earth’s climate from small deviations in its orbit?
  • why did the programme not mention that CO2 is a vital element in ensuring plant growth such that many farmers growing food in greenhouses actually use CO2 generators to increase the amount of CO2 to improve plant growth?
  • why didn’t the programme mention the fact that a warming climate causes the oceans to release more CO2? So, increasing CO2 may be the result of warming rather than its cause?
  • why was a programme supposedly giving us the ‘facts’ spending so much time featuring protesting schoolchildren whose grasp of complex multiple-factor feedback systems like the Earth’s climate would be more than questionable?

But I’ll leave a full criticism of the trashy Soviet-style propaganda programme to people with a better understanding of climate science than myself.

The most misleading chart ever produced?

I’d just like to focus on one detail of the BBC’s propaganda programme to show how misleading the whole thing was. Despite claiming to give us the ‘facts’ on climate change, the programme (I believe from the bits I did watch) only featured one actual chart of the Earth’s temperature – the one that starts in 1850:

But why did the programme choose a chart that started in 1850? Why not 1750? Or 1650? Or 1900? Or even thousands of years ago? After all, there are been plenty of scientific studies using ice cores and other methods to estimate the Earth’s temperature changes over longer periods.

The well-worn 1850s chart is wonderful for the Warmies as it shows the Earth’s climate becoming increasingly warm as industrialisation gathers pace and spreads around the world. There you have it folks! It’s clear from the chart that the Earth’s warming climate must be due to industrialisation and the increasing CO2 emissions caused by industrialisation and the use of fossil fuels. So, the science is settled (claims Sir David).

But hold on a minute. Being an obviously low-IQ simpleton, I’d like to put the 1850s chart into a wider context. Let’s go back a bit before the carefully-chosen 1850s chart.  Here are the estimated Earth’s temperatures taken from the study of ice cores:

Looking at this chart, we can see the Earth has clear warming and cooling cycles. Looking at this chart we can see that we are moving out of what has been called the ‘Little Ice Age’ and into what has been called the ‘Modern Warm Period‘. Looking at this chart we can see that current temperatures are NOT exceptional, but are actually below previous peaks. Looking at this longer-term chart, we can see how misleading the 1850s chart is.

Here’s another longer-term chart:

This one also suggests we are moving out of the ‘Little Ice Age’. The ‘Little Ice Age’ lasted from around 1300 to around 1870. Yippeee! By choosing a chart which conveniently starts in 1850 – at around the end of the ‘Little Ice Age’ – the Warmies can ‘conclusively prove’ that the Earth is definitely warming.

So, here are two key questions:

  • is the Earth warming? Yes, but as the warming plateaued for a few years, the Warmies started fiddling the figures to exaggerate the extent of the warming
  • is the warming due to human activity? No. The warming is part of a natural cycle in which we are now moving from a ‘Little Ice Age’ into the ‘Modern Warm Period’ and human activity probably has no effect at all on the long-term cycle of warming and cooling.

That’s why the Warmies love the 1850 chart so much. It hides the truth and supposedly supports their Man-Made Global Warming hoax.

The words “lying, data-manipulating scumbags” come to mind.

But it’s not the figures that are lying – it’s the people using and abusing those figures! By carefully choosing a short period – 1850 to the present – the BBC Warmies deliberately give a completely misleading impression of what is actually happening to the Earth’s climate.

Propaganda, deceit, lies! The BBC Warmies are at it yet again and again and again.

As for Sir David’s participation in what I believe is a hoax – legal considerations prevent me expressing my true feelings.

    I am surprised at David Attenborough, I once had the utmost respect for him.Now he is just another of the bought and paid for shills, politicians and scientists.

    Carbon Dioxide represents what percent of the Atmosphere?
    Ask a Climate Gate looney and they wont know.He or She who shouts loudest is right,right? Forget about checking the facts eh!
    Carbon Dioxide is only 0.04% of the Atmosphere. Thats equivalent to 32mm at the top and man produces 1 mm of that.
    Man produces 1 tenth the amount of Termites.What is wrong with Mr Attenborough got a Political disease that seems to have gone viral, galloping Marxism.

    These are the comments of the Globalists that will do us the utmost harm to grab total power over those of us that are allowed to survive.Preparing us for and wasting precious resources to combat bogus warming when we are to face great cooling and weather volatilty is typical of those that wish to Stab us in the back.We are being persecuted no doubt about that and the persecution will intensify.Our leaders are Evil, those that direct them behind the scenes are Evil they have been preparing all this a long time, they have Evil intent make no bones about it they are and will be relentless in pursuit of Power,Wealth and persecution of Europeans and Christians in particular.They will try to force us to die in a War with those that resist them in Russia and China.We are at War now, War is being prosecuted against us daily in their controlled media, notice the Anti Christian stories in the papers now at Easter in the DailyMail, Daily Express and the Guardian, they are all Shills, learn to despise the MainStream Media , they will pollute your minds.Unfortunately the younger generations as a whole are totally clueless and Cheerlead their own demise, very sad to observe,they are heading in the wrong direction fast unable to open their ears and engage objective thinking.
    There education has been designed that way.There thinking is flat and obedient with no depth and driven by falsely triggered emotion.When you face them with a fact they twist the subject into a different one with a different answer unable to accept that they are wrong.Being right to them is all that matters accepting new information or developing new ideas is not something that they can do being prckly and defensive is all they know, it will be their World someday if they persist in driving helterskelter in the wrong direction they will get the future they deserve and they really will not like it,Slavery is very unpleasant, thats where we are headed .Will they wake up, maybe some probably when it is far too late.

    The NWO Globalist Cabal that has taken over the West and is most entrenched in that bastion of a Cultural MARXIST Sewer the UK .Has destroyed the name and career of Professor David Bellamy because of his honesty and refusal to accept the Cabals falsehoods one of which is the Global Warming, Climategate Scam.God bless him and damn David Attenborough for his collusion, he should know better the coward.

    Greenpeace Founder: Climate Change Hoax Being Pushed By Corrupt Scientists ‘Hooked On Government Grants’

    Greenpeace co-founder and former president of Greenpeace Canada Dr. Patrick Moore described he corrupt system driving the narrative of man-made global warming and “climate change” in a recent interview.
    Dr. Moore explained how fear and guilt are leveraged by proponents of climate change:
    “And so you’ve got the green movement creating stories that instill fear in the public. You’ve got the media echo chamber — fake news — repeating it over and over and over again to everybody that they’re killing their children. And then you’ve got the green politicians who are buying scientists with government money to produce fear for them in the form of scientific-looking materials.”
    Boom! That hurts! Most honest people who have looked at this debate from both sides came to the conclusion a long time ago that this was a scheme to redistribute the wealth. It was built under a false narrative that there was 100% consensus in the scientific community that man was about to destroy the earth.
    Dr. Moore has long been a proponent of getting the real truth out surrounding the man-made global warming hoax:

    The graph of temperatures is interesting but the ones from ice cores go back 800,000 years and show several ice ages. Estimates of earth temperature from its creation show a history of cooling. The ice cores really show a period now of stable climate. The temperature variation is quite small but made to look significant. In thermodynamics the Kelvin scale applies which starts at absolute zero, -273C and anything above absolute zero contains thermal energy. Plot the ice core data on the Kelvin scale and basically it is a flat line. The climate is stable and changes are caused by the Milancovitch cycles. The energy from the sun is the driver of climate change. We are presently recovering from an ice age and so temperatures are increasing. Our advanced civilisation is due to this warming. The earth isn’t here for our benefit. We evolved because of the conditions and they are not going to stay favourable to us. We will have to adapt. We cannot change the climate.

    Climate Change .Its about robbing developed nations, robbing you and me, punishing us again for being us, its discrimination on a huge scale.

    Mark Steyn – IPCC Official Admits Global Warming Is A Lie To Redistribute Wealth.

    The IPCC is a UN outfit, what could possibly go wrong?

    “Everyone knows this. Which is why the IPCC also produces documents in the 20 to 30-page range bearing the title: Summary for Policymakers. There’s a Working Group 1 Summary for Policymakers, a Working Group 2 summary, and a Working Group 3 summary – for different sections of that 7,000-page report. These are the documents that matter – the ones that actually get read. These are the documents that influence media coverage and shape new legislation.

    Now if scientists were in charge at the IPCC, at the end of the process these summaries would be written up by a small group, released into the world, and we’d all read these scientists’ unadorned words. But that’s not what happens.

    In fact, IPCC authors only draft these summaries. And then something incredible transpires.
    A big IPCC meeting takes place. Attended by governments. Although some people in the room are scientists, the vast majority are diplomats, politicians, foreign affairs specialists, bureaucrats, and assorted other officials. These people then spend the next week re-writing the summary authored by scientists.
    Every single paragraph in that draft gets projected onto large screens and discussed. The delegation from country X wants two sentences removed. The delegation from country Y insists that a new phrase be inserted. Graphs get added; tables get subtracted. And they keep talking about that one paragraph until all of the countries present are happy with it. Then it’s taken down and the next paragraph is put up on the screen.

    It’s only after the diplomats have haggled over this Summary – paragraph by paragraph – that the final version gets officially released at a press conference.
    The world is then told that science has spoken. But what’s just happened has nothing to do with science. Scientific truth is not determined in the dead of night by UN-level negotiations. On what planet would such an approach make scientific sense?
    But the bad news doesn’t stop there. There’s actually a step in the IPCC process in which the original, lengthy report gets amended so that it conforms to the politically-negotiated Summary. I am not making this up.

    Ladies and gentlemen: We live in a world in which people are suspicious of politicians, but still respect scientists. Politicians are therefore eager to borrow the prestige of science, to camouflage their own agenda with a veneer of scientific authority.”

    Western Civilisation is imploding, is it any wonder when they are lead by the biggest bunch of Wank*rs in History.
    No it isn’t…

  • Roy Hartwell

    A Thorpe you are absolutely right. Even written history records such events as the Roman Warm period, The medieval warm period and the various frost fayres when the Thames froze over (documented by Dickens in the 1850s). The problem is we have a political elite who have discovered a way to make us WANT to pay more taxes and have a reduced standard of living by inventing a way to make us feel guilty about enjoying a comfortable and long life. When the next ice-age hits (whatever it’s depth) it’s us that will inevitably suffer as access to cheap energy will have long gone (except for the Emma Thompsons of this world !!)

  • A Thorpe

    Regarding comments above, I do not think people respect scientists anymore. If they did they would be listening to then, but where do they go to do so? If they had any interest in science at school they would be asking questions and researching on the internet. The masses are mainly influenced by the media where only global warming matters and not balanced science. An example of media influence in another area is the MMR fraud resulting from research by Andrew Wakefield. His study was peer reviewed and published in The Lancet. So much for peer review. It was the media that revealed this work and created the panic which is still about today.

    One well known scientist is Brian Cox and he supports man made climate change. Look him up on YouTube for an Australian TV show called Q&A where he appeared with Malcolm Roberts. There is also a YouTube video analysing all the statements made by Cox and explaining why he is wrong.

    The book “Bang!” by Brian May, Patrick Moore and Chris Lintott, says the climate is changing because of Milankovic cycles. There is no mention of CO2. Sky at Night now supports human caused global warming. If scientists want a successful career they have to become believers. Stephen Hawking supported it but I have not seen why. Richard Dawkins also is a believer, he says that melting glaciers are a sign if human caused warming. Here is a man who always calls for evidence but he knows humans are responsible just by looking at melting ice. Prof Andrea Sella did a ridiculous experiment on TV using gun cotton and Iain Stewart did one with a candle and a thermal camera. Neither experiment showed what was claimed and in the case of Stewart, his experiment was created by Sussex University and the man who set it up published the details on the internet. Both could be classed as magic tricks.
