The Myth of the Climate Change ‘97%’

Reported By on 2014-05-26 

 Last week Secretary of State John Kerry warned graduating students at Boston College of the ‘crippling consequences’ of climate change. ‘Ninety-seven percent of the world’s scientists,’ he added, ‘tell us this is urgent.’ …Yet the assertion that 97% of scientists believe that climate change is a man-made, urgent problem is a fiction.

UN climate change expert reveals bias in global warming report

Reported By Fox News on 2014-05-20 

“The [latest IPCC] report also illustrates just how outmoded the IPCC has become since it was founded in 1988. Its reports are written over a period of three years, and finished months before publication. When preparations started on AR5, the world hadn’t warmed for 13 years. That is a bit odd, if you believe the models, but not odd enough to merit a lot of attention. By the time the report was finished, however, it hadn’t warmed for 17 years. That is decidedly odd, but hard to accommodate in a near-final draft that has been through three rounds of review…. Here are some suggestions: Away with the infrequent, massive set pieces. Away with alarmism – that has been tried for 25 years, with no discernible impact on emissions. Away with activists posing as scientists. Away with the freshman mistakes. Just good, sober, solid science. Let the chips fall where they may….”

There is no Legitimate Redistribution

This past Friday Catholic Pope Francis spoke to United Nations leaders in Rome, and urged “the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the state” [ref].

I know many Catholics that I highly respect, and in many ways the Catholic Church has stood up for Biblical Christian values that many other religions have discarded in the pursuit of worldliness.  But in this instance the Pope is dead wrong.

Scientists are not saints in white laboratory smocks

Reported By Fox News on 2014-05-06

It’s not.'”
