Manufacturing climate change deceptions — Part Two

It is astonishing how scientifically accurate data is used to create massive deceptions—namely involving man’s ability to overpower Mother Nature and control the thermostat of planet Earth. While we are clearly not conspiracy theorists, man-caused global warming or climate change (take your pick) has been a mechanism used across the world to grow governments, converge to a one-world government and defeat capitalism in favor of world socialism. The tool of choice is the use of well-chosen facts, casting aside facts not considered useful in order to deceive. In science, this is called cherry-picking. Lacking ethics, one chooses only the facts that support their beliefs while ignoring those that don’t.

In the first of this two-part series, we used material directly from government reports pointing out the information missing in order to make a dishonest presentation of information to the public. We are doing the same here.

The article presented in black segments below allows us to illustrate how NASA/ NOAA and the UN/IPCC promote deception, using deliberate omissions to create a false understanding for the casual reader. In this essay, we focus on the last half of the article that features NASA’s comments on Mars, Venus, and our Sun in their efforts to convince the reader that humanity controls Earth’s thermostat.

The article is from the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA), which appeared on September 16, 2020, is reproduced without any changes other than formatting for convenient reading. The original can be found by clicking here. You may want to read the original first.

In blue type following each final segment of the NASA article, we provide commentary on the deceptions NASA has created. Without all the facts, the casual reader will arrive at the author’s desired false impression. An example of how incomplete information creates a false impression is shown in Figure 1.

Manufacturing climate deceptions -- Part one Here we consider all the data available on the relationship between A and B, which could be dependent variables such as how A (Sun’s radiation) and B (atmospheric temperature) vary with each other. Looking at all the data, the relationship shown as Trend 1 is clearly correct. However, if we choose to use only a small selection of data, we can arrive at any trend we desire. This is the technique many government agencies use to achieve false impressions.

Not enough greenhouse effect: [11] The planet Mars has a very thin atmosphere, nearly all carbon dioxide. Because of the low atmospheric pressure, and with little to no methane or water vapor to reinforce the weak greenhouse effect, Mars has a largely frozen surface that shows no evidence of life.

[11] A true statement is implying an outright deception. Mars is a dead planet for many reasons, none of which have anything to do with CO2 or human activities.

Too much greenhouse effect: [12] The atmosphere of Venus, like Mars, is nearly all carbon dioxide. But Venus has about 154,000 times as much carbon dioxide in its atmosphere as Earth (and about 19,000 times as much as Mars does), producing a runaway greenhouse effect and a surface temperature hot enough to melt lead.

[12] NASA is again misleading us by omission. Venus is much closer to the Sun and hotter. Its atmosphere is 90 times denser than the earth’s, and its barometric pressure would crush a person into a pancake. Venus is a veritable hell on wheels and inhospitable to life for many reasons other than CO2.

On Earth, human activities [13] are changing the natural greenhouse. Over the last century the burning of fossil fuels like coal and oil has increased the concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). This happens because the coal or oil burning process combines carbon with oxygen in the air to make CO2. To a lesser extent, the clearing of land for agriculture, industry, and other human activities has increased concentrations of greenhouse gases.

[14] The consequences of changing the natural atmospheric greenhouse are difficult to predict, but certain effects seem likely:

[13] NASA makes several factual statements, but let us see what it does not tell us. What they do not tell us are the proportional values and comparative context. For example: (1) Yes, we caused an increase in total CO2 but did not tell us that the human-caused increase is maybe only a few percent of total CO2. (2) NASA fails to tell us by how much and what is the percent of the consequences are attributable to humanity. See a detailed explanation of all the variables and their comparative contributions in the book A HITCHHIKERS JOURNEY THROUGH CLIMATE CHANGE.”

[14] In the below four bullets, note the repeated use of words Probably,” “May,” Possibly,” “Could.” The bottom line, NASA does not know what increased or decreased levels of CO2 do in the atmosphere. This is especially true with clouds in the phase changes of water vapor to liquid or solid. And neither do the classical skeptical scientists. The science is simply too difficult, not well understood, and impossible to model accurately.

  • On average, Earth will become warmer. Some regions may welcome warmer temperatures, but others may not.

  • Warmer conditions will probably lead to more evaporation and precipitation overall, but individual regions will vary, some becoming wetter and others dryer.

  • A stronger greenhouse effect will warm the oceans and partially melt glaciers and other ice, increasing sea level. Ocean water also will expand if it warms, contributing further to sea level rise.

  • Meanwhile, some crops and other plants may respond favorably to increased atmospheric CO2, growing more vigorously, and using water more efficiently. At the same time, higher temperatures and shifting climate patterns may change the areas where crops grow best and affect the makeup of natural plant communities.

The Role of Human Activity

In its Fifth Assessment Report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a group of 1,300 independent scientific experts from countries all over the world under the auspices of the United Nations, concluded there’s a more than 95 percent probability that human activities over the past 50 years have warmed our planet.

The industrial activities that our modern civilization depends upon have raised atmospheric carbon dioxide levels from 280 parts per million to 412 parts per million in the last 150 years. The panel also concluded there’s a better than 95 percent probability that human-produced greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide have caused much of the observed increase in Earth’s temperatures over the past 50 years.

Solar Irradiance

The graph [15] compares global surface temperature changes (red line) and the Sun’s energy that Earth receives (yellow line) in watts (units of energy) per square meter since 1880. The lighter/thinner lines show the yearly levels while the heavier/thicker lines show the 11-year average trends. Eleven-year averages are used to reduce the year-to-year natural noise in the data, making the underlying trends more obvious.
