Obama’s Alarmist “Climate” Report Debunked by Scientists

It didn't take long for President Obama's latest doom-and-gloom-packed "climate change" report to be thoroughly debunked by independent scientists.

Like virtually every alarmist global-warming warning produced by government or the United Nations in recent decades, it did not take long for the Obama administration’s latest doom-and-gloom-packed “climate change” report to be debunked by independent scientists. Indeed, it took less than two weeks for experts to go through the 840-page White House document and tear its outlandish claims to shreds — often using United Nations reports and the federal government’s own data to do so, issuing a blistering critique of the “nonsense” and “deception” put forward by the administration.

Now, with the predicted surge in Earth's temperatures still on “pause” after almost 18 years, the Obama administration and its coterie of global-warming theorists are being blasted and ridiculed for fear-mongering, deception, and more. In a powerful rebuttal to the White House “National Climate Assessment,” a coalition of 15 respected scientists, climatologists, and other experts seized upon many of the more absurd claims to debunk the Obama report on May 15. The administration, they said, has built a “House of Cards” predicated on bogus evidence that “collapses” upon examination.

“We are asked to believe that humans are drastically changing the earth’s climate by burning fossil fuels,” explained the coalition of scientists, which includes multiple experts who have worked for organizations such as the EPA, Environment Canada, and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UN IPCC). “The problem with their theory is very simple: It is NOT true.... Our climate is constantly changing for perfectly natural reasons that have nothing to do with carbon dioxide.” (Emphasis in original.)

In fact, the experts continued, the White House climate report is “so grossly flawed” that it should play “no role” in analyses of U.S. energy policy and CO2 regulatory schemes. “As this rebuttal makes clear, the [National Climate Assessment] provides no scientific basis whatsoever for regulating CO2 emissions,” they added. That statement, of course, cuts to the heart of the issue: Global-warming theorists claim carbon dioxide, exhaled by humans, is “pollution” that must be taxed, regulated, and used as the basis for a draconian global climate regime led by the UN to ration energy.

Despite the fact that human emissions of the essential-to-life gas make up a fraction of one percent of all the “greenhouse gases” naturally in the atmosphere, climate alarmists insist it is causing “global warming.” The fact that there has been no warming for almost 18 years and counting — debunking 73 out of 73 UN climate models — also does not seem to have chilled the alarmists’ zeal for controlling all human activity either. 

For independent scientists, though, the truth is becoming clear. “The National Climate Assessment — 2014 (NCA) is a masterpiece of marketing that shows for the first time the full capabilities of the Obama Administration to spin a scientific topic as they see fit, without regard to the underlying facts,” the 15 scientists and experts explained in their letter. “With hundreds of pages written by hundreds of captive scientists and marketing specialists, the administration presents their case for extreme climate alarm.”
