“Global Warming” Is a HOAX: Top Environmental Scientist APOLOGIZES For Decades of Deception

And Forbes Magazine Censors him!

But here it is from Zerohedge.com

Forbes has decided to unpublish an article by award-winning climate activist Michael Shellenberger, in which he apologizes “for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years.”

Schellenberger, a progressive, was named one of TIME‘s “Heroes of the Environment,” while his book Break Through was heralded by WIRED as potentially “the best thing to happen to environmentalism since Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring.”

His book Apocalypse Never was widely praised as an ‘eye-opening, fact-based approach’ to climate science and ‘engaging and well-researched.’

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem. 

I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30. 

But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public.

Here are some facts few people know:

  • Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction” 

  • The Amazon is not “the lungs of the world”

  • Climate change is not making natural disasters worse

  • Fires have declined 25% around the world since 2003

  • The amount of land we use for meat — humankind’s biggest use of land — has declined by an area nearly as large as Alaska

  • The build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explain why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and California

  • Carbon emissions are declining in most rich nations and have been declining in Britain, Germany, and France since the mid-1970s 

  • Adapting to life below sea level made the Netherlands rich not poor

  • We produce 25% more food than we need and food surpluses will continue to rise as the world gets hotter

  • Habitat loss and the direct killing of wild animals are bigger threats to species than climate change

  • Wood fuel is far worse for people and wildlife than fossil fuels

  • Preventing future pandemics requires more not less “industrial” agriculture

I know that the above facts will sound like “climate denialism” to many people. But that just shows the power of climate alarmism

In reality, the above facts come from the best-available scientific studies, including those conducted by or accepted by the IPCC, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and other leading scientific bodies. 

Some people will, when they read this imagine that I’m some right-wing anti-environmentalist. I’m not. At 17, I lived in Nicaragua to show solidarity with the Sandinista socialist revolution. At 23 I raised money for Guatemalan women’s cooperatives. In my early 20s I lived in the semi-Amazon doing research with small farmers fighting land invasions. At 26 I helped expose poor conditions at Nike factories in Asia. 

I became an environmentalist at 16 when I threw a fundraiser for Rainforest Action Network. At 27 I helped save the last unprotected ancient redwoods in California. In my 30s I advocated renewables and successfully helped persuade the Obama administration to invest $90 billion into them. Over the last few years I helped save enough nuclear plants from being replaced by fossil fuels to prevent a sharp increase in emissions 

But until last year, I mostly avoided speaking out against the climate scare. Partly that’s because I was embarrassed. After all, I am as guilty of alarmism as any other environmentalist. For years, I referred to climate change as an “existential” threat to human civilization, and called it a “crisis.” 

But mostly I was scared. I remained quiet about the climate disinformation campaign because I was afraid of losing friends and funding. The few times I summoned the courage to defend climate science from those who misrepresent it I suffered harsh consequences. And so I mostly stood by and did next to nothing as my fellow environmentalists terrified the public.

I even stood by as people in the White House and many in the news media tried to destroy the reputation and career of an outstanding scientist, good man, and friend of mine, Roger Pielke, Jr., a lifelong progressive Democrat and environmentalist who testified in favor of carbon regulations. Why did they do that? Because his research proves natural disasters aren’t getting worse. 

But then, last year, things spiraled out of control

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said “The world is going to end in twelve years if we don’t address climate change.” Britain’s most high-profile environmental group claimed “Climate Change Kills Children.” 

The world’s most influential green journalist, Bill McKibben, called climate change the “greatest challenge humans have ever faced” and said it would “wipe out civilizations.” 

Mainstream journalists reported, repeatedly, that the Amazon was “the lungs of the world,” and that deforestation was like a nuclear bomb going off.

As a result, half of the people surveyed around the world last year said they thought climate change would make humanity extinct. And in January, one out of five British children told pollsters they were having nightmares about climate change.

Whether or not you have children you must see how wrong this is. I admit I may be sensitive because I have a teenage daughter. After we talked about the science she was reassured. But her friends are deeply misinformed and thus, understandably, frightened. 

I thus decided I had to speak out. I knew that writing a few articles wouldn’t be enough. I needed a book to properly lay out all of the evidence. 

 And so my formal apology for our fear-mongering comes in the form of my new book, Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All. 

It is based on two decades of research and three decades of environmental activism. At 400 pages, with 100 of them endnotes, Apocalypse Never covers climate change, deforestation, plastic waste, species extinction, industrialization, meat, nuclear energy, and renewables.

Some highlights from the book:

  • Factories and modern farming are the keys to human liberation and environmental progress 

  • The most important thing for saving the environment is producing more food, particularly meat, on less land 

  • The most important thing for reducing air pollution and carbon emissions is moving from wood to coal to petroleum to natural gas to uranium 

  • 100% renewables would require increasing the land used for energy from today’s 0.5% to 50% 

  • We should want cities, farms, and power plants to have higher, not lower, power densities

  • Vegetarianism reduces one’s emissions by less than 4%

  • Greenpeace didn’t save the whales, switching from whale oil to petroleum and palm oil did

  • “Free-range” beef would require 20 times more land and produce 300% more emissions

  • Greenpeace dogmatism worsened forest fragmentation of the Amazon

  • The colonialist approach to gorilla conservation in the Congo produced a backlash that may have resulted in the killing of 250 elephants

Why were we all so misled?

In the final three chapters of Apocalypse Never I expose the financial, political, and ideological motivations. Environmental groups have accepted hundreds of millions of dollars from fossil fuel interests. Groups motivated by anti-humanist beliefs forced the World Bank to stop trying to end poverty and instead make poverty “sustainable.” And status anxiety, depression, and hostility to modern civilization are behind much of the alarmism

Once you realize just how badly misinformed we have been, often by people with plainly unsavory or unhealthy motivations, it is hard not to feel duped

Will Apocalypse Never make any difference? There are certainly reasons to doubt it. 

The news media have been making apocalyptic pronouncements about climate change since the late 1980s, and do not seem disposed to stop. 

The ideology behind environmental alarmsim — Malthusianism — has been repeatedly debunked for 200 years and yet is more powerful than ever.

But there are also reasons to believe that environmental alarmism will, if not come to an end, have diminishing cultural power. 

The coronavirus pandemic is an actual crisis that puts the climate “crisis” into perspective. Even if you think we have overreacted, Covid-19 has killed nearly 500,000 people and shattered economies around the globe.

Scientific institutions including WHO and IPCC have undermined their credibility through the repeated politicization of science. Their future existence and relevance depends on new leadership and serious reform.

Facts still matter, and social media is allowing for a wider range of new and independent voices to outcompete alarmist environmental journalists at legacy publications

Nations are reverting openly to self-interest and away from Malthusianism and neoliberalism, which is good for nuclear and bad for renewables.

The evidence is overwhelming that our high-energy civilization is better for people and nature than the low-energy civilization that climate alarmists would return us to

The invitations from IPCC and Congress are signs of a growing openness to new thinking about climate change and the environment. Another one has been to the response to my book from climate scientists, conservationists, and environmental scholars. “Apocalypse Never is an extremely important book,” writes Richard Rhodes, the Pulitzer-winning author of The Making of the Atomic Bomb. “This may be the most important book on the environment ever written,” says one of the fathers of modern climate science Tom Wigley.

“We environmentalists condemn those with antithetical views of being ignorant of science and susceptible to confirmation bias,” wrote the former head of The Nature Conservancy, Steve McCormick. “But too often we are guilty of the same.  Shellenberger offers ‘tough love:’ a challenge to entrenched orthodoxies and rigid, self-defeating mindsets.  Apocalypse Never serves up occasionally stinging, but always well-crafted, evidence-based points of view that will help develop the ‘mental muscle’ we need to envision and design not only a hopeful, but an attainable, future.”

That is all I hoped for in writing it. If you’ve made it this far, I hope you’ll agree that it’s perhaps not as strange as it seems that a lifelong environmentalist, progressive, and climate activist felt the need to speak out against the alarmism

I further hope that you’ll accept my apology. source

Not a good day for you, Al?

Brethren, most of us have known for many years that the climate change mantra was simply a ruse for the U.N.  to take control of the economies of the nations of the world. 

I just wrote in a recent article that the Climate Change scare did not pan out well for the globalists. I wrote that too many famous and credible scientists on the planet had debunked the whole theory. 

That’s when the powers that be went to Plan B – Covid-19. And it seems more than a bit suspicious to me that we would have these horrific riots happening nationwide by ANTIFA and BLM. 

It all points to two major expectations by these Globalists: Destroy the American Economy, and take down President Trump.

Well, God is in complete control. We who belong to Him know that whatever He allows to happen is in His perfect will.  We trust our Lord and we must keep our eyes on Him during these uncertain times.

I love the saying:  “I don’t know what the future holds, but I do know Who holds the future.”  

And we can fully trust Him!

Experts Predicting: LANDSLIDE VICTORY for Trump in 2020

I also believe that President Trump will not only win in 2020, but he will win by the largest Landslide in the history of America

 Why do I feel quite sure of this?  Glad you asked and I will tell you.

Think back to that night – November 8, 2016. All polls had shown that Hillary Clinton had the election in the proverbial bag.

CNN, MSNBC and the network stations were all having pre-victory parties. They were salivating at the thought of seeing Donald Trump go down.

But what happened?  We Conservatives will remember that night for the rest of our lives.  The quiet Americans – the ones who knew about the Marxist ideology of Barack Obama and had suffered through 8 years of his hatred for America – well, they quietly went to the polls and voted for Donald Trump.

WHAT a night that was!

Pandemics and Riots and Hate, Oh My!

Most Americans have connected the dots by now.  Deep State was responsible for the Wuhan Virus escaping the Wuhan Institute of Virology – causing a pandemic. Why am I so sure that Deep State was involved in this? Check out an article I wrote months ago about Tony Fauci:

Dr. Fauci Backed Controversial Wuhan Lab With Millions of U.S. Dollars For Risky Coronavirus Research   <click to read

Riots and Hate

If one reads any of my articles on the death of George Floyd, one would be hard pressed to find me stating anything but disgust for his horrific murder by a police officer, while others looked on. 

But what happened next was not spontaneous. At first, many people took to the streets to protest police brutality. They protested without violence. 

But George Soros, being the granddaddy of opportunists, saw a chance to call up his ‘paid’ forces to wreak havoc in the streets of major cities in America.

Remember – Never Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste!  

We are still in the midst of not only riots and looting and murder – but part of Seattle has been taken over by thugs. My heart breaks for the people of “CHOP” as the hoodlums named it. There is no police department able to come into the area. Rapes and murders are happening, but the people have no protection.

Quiet Americans are watching.

JULY 4TH

I have been reading that ANTIFA and BLM plan to bring their violence and bloodshed to the suburbs of America.  Millions of ‘Quiet’ Americans bought guns in the last three months. Add that to the already MILLIONS of Americans who have been well armed for many years, and you have an armed nation ready to protect themselves and their families.

“Firearms dealers around the US have reported increasing numbers of Americans who’ve decided to pack heat amid the social unrest and violent protests that followed the police-custody death of George Floyd, according to a report.

More than 6.5 million background checks were conducted from Jan. 1 through April 30, according to the foundation, which showed a 48 percent year-over-year increase from the same period last year.” source

I’m sure that a percentage of the new gun sales were for nefarious reasons – perhaps to give to ANTIFA or BLM. But I truly believe that the majority of the sales were by law abiding citizens, concerned for the safety of their families. 

We still have our Second Amendment rights!

I want to make something very clear to the reader:  Almost every Second Amendment law abiding gun owner does NOT ever wish to have to use their weapon. They see their gun as a deterrent to some who might invade their property in hopes of harming them and their families.

Why Trump Will Win the Post-Pandemic Election

He’ll ride the voter backlash already building in the blue states.

It is by now obvious that the Democrats are determined to exploit the COVID-19 pandemic in a last desperate attempt to get the president. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has launched yet another Trump investigation, said his call to reopen the economy is “sinful,” and colluded with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to block the GOP effort to pass financial aid without which even more Americans will lose their jobs. Meanwhile, the nation’s Democratic governors refuse to ease their job-killing lockdowns, despite indications that the spread of COVID-19 has already passed its peak. The Democrats clearly hope that the resultant recession will cause Trump to lose in November.

But the voters are well aware that the Democrats are motivated by pure partisanship. In a recent Harvard Caps/Harris poll, 60 percent of registered voters said Nancy Pelosi is “putting party over country.” They also know Trump wants to reopen the country. AP reports, “President Donald Trump gave governors a road map Thursday for recovering from the economic pain of the coronavirus pandemic.” Democratic governors will balk, but 22 million Americans have lost their jobs due to state lockdowns, and many are already protesting in North Carolina, Kentucky, Michigan, and Virginia. Moreover, federal lawsuits have been filed against Democratic governors claiming the lockdowns violate the Constitution:

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer faces at least two federal lawsuits challenging her April 9 executive order to combat the coronavirus outbreak, including requirements that residents stay at home.… In complaints filed on Tuesday and Wednesday, several Michigan residents and one business accused the governor of violating their constitutional rights by imposing her “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order.

Whitmer is not the only Democratic governor to be sued pursuant to a lockdown. In March, a federal lawsuit was filed against Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) by Brooklyn resident Lee Nigen, who objects to Cuomo’s threat to use law enforcement personnel to coerce compliance. As Nigen’s attorney told the New York Post, “Clearly, there is a grave public health emergency.… But lawful process matters and emergency orders of this sort, if left unchallenged, will evolve into precedents with horrifying consequences.” Nigen’s lawsuit touches on an issue that will come up again. On March 23, Gov. Cuomo imposed an indefinite ban on large gatherings, an outrageous violation of the constitutional right of free assembly.

When April 30 rolls around, Americans will have had enough of living under house arrest while their livelihoods evaporate and it becomes obvious that the fatality projections upon which their Democratic governors based Draconian stay-at-home orders were wild exaggerations based on statistically meaningless data. Cynical partisans like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Gretchen Whitmer, and Andrew Cuomo will neither be able to keep their constituents imprisoned in their homes nor retain their trust. Trump’s instincts will have been vindicated, and he will leverage his advantages as an incumbent to convince the voters not to fall for any further Democratic skulduggery. Among these advantages is fundraising:

President Trump’s reelection committees said they have raised more than $212 million in the first three months of the year, a massive sum that boosts the president’s cash lead as presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden begins shifting his focus to the general election.… Trump, the Republican National Committee and their joint fundraising committees have now raised more than $1 billion toward his reelection campaign, and entered April with more than $240 million in their accounts.

The presumptive Democratic nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden, is so far behind that it will be all but impossible for him to raise enough money to compete:

Biden and the Democratic National Committee haven’t released their March fundraising figures yet — they don’t have to report until April 20. And while they both are likely to reveal good fundraising months, Biden had just $12.1 million in the bank and the DNC had just $14 million.… The real human tragedy of the economic downturn is impeding Biden’s ability to catch up.… Less than 40% of his money through February came from donors who gave $200 or less, compared to 50% for Trump.

In other words, Biden’s irresponsible rhetoric concerning COVID-19 has come home to roost. His public statements and campaign ads have been exploitative and dishonest. Consequently, he helped engender the coronavirus panic and the very economic downturn that has left him at an insurmountable cash disadvantage. Moreover, the strongest fundraiser of the Democratic presidential field — Bernie Sanders — has dropped out and grudgingly endorsed Biden but plans to deploy his deep database of supporters on behalf of progressive down-ballot candidates. Biden will, of course, enjoy a disproportionate amount of “earned media.” The 2016 election illustrated the limitations of that once formidable resource, however.

Trump also has other advantages, of course, such as a sophisticated “virtual campaign.” As Jennifer Harper writes in the Washington Times, “President Trump has once again proven he can bypass the news media and take his message directly to the public.” This is, of course, why the media remain so hostile to him. It is also why the Democrats are anxious to shut down the economy. Their only hope is that the coronavirus recession will be blamed on Trump. As usual, however, they underestimate the intelligence of the voters and the president himself. When we emerge from the pandemic, Trump will have won yet again. source

And never forget these words of warning from Benjamin Franklin, addressing the Constitutional Convention:

“There is no form of Government but what may be a blessing to the people if well administered, and believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in Despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic Government, being incapable of any other.”

Brethren, we must pray for courage in the coming months. Most importantly, we must pray that God’s Will be Done!

Another Marxist Co-Founder of BLM Connected to Maduro of Venezuala

Recently, I wrote a piece on a co-founder of BLM admitting on camera that she and others in BLM are “Trained Marxists.”

From oann.com

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Connected To Maduro

Black Lives Matter co-founder Opal Tometi is reportedly connected to the Maduro regime. A picture of Tometi hugging the Venezuelan dictator surfaced on Thursday.

The photo in question was taken in Harlem at the 2015 People of African Descent Leadership Summit. At the time, Maduro was in New York for the United Nations General Assembly.

Tometi also shared some thoughts at the summit, where she thanked Maduro and his government for having her. During her speech, she condemned the “western economic policies, land grabs and neocolonial financial instruments like the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.”

That same year, Tometi was in the socialist South American country when she tweeted:

Police brutality, one of the atrocities the Black Lives Matter movement stands against, has plagued Venezuela in the years since Maduro took power back in 2013. Since then, more than 4.5 million people have fled Venezuela.

In 2018 alone, Breitbart reported nearly 1,500 minors were killed at the hands of the police. Venezuelan police under Maduro are reported to have imprisoned and murdered a countless number of protesters and political opponents.

Tometi has not commented on the brutality in Venezuela, but remains a vocal critic of so-called police brutality in America.

“But people from all walks of life are looking around and saying, this is not the type of country I want to live in. I am tired. I don’t want to be part of a society that allows unarmed black people to be killed every single day by police.”

— Opal Tometi, co-founder – Black Lives Matter

This follows a recently circulated video showing another Black Lives Matter co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, stating that the movement holds a Marxist ideology.

“We actually do have an ideological frame, myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers,” said Cullors. “We are trained Marxists.” source

This is how trained Marxists “roll.”  They lie and lie until the people begin to believe the lies.

People in my family who are Leftists are enraged if I even try to show them who the BLM people really are. They say that I’m duped because I don’t get my news from the Communist News Network known as CNN.

I continue to pray for them.

Corona Virus – Shaped Hail Hits China

I believe that the Corona Virus shaped hail is NOT coincidental. 

Just today I read that China leader Xi Jinping has threatened elderly Christians to stop worshiping their God or else the government will cut off all aid to them.  **this story at the end of this article

If there was ever a truly demonic government – it is China.

From breakingisraelnews.com

Coronavirus-Shaped Hailstones “the Size of Eggs” Fall in China: An End-of Days Omen?

The Beijing Meteorological Observatory issued a yellow warning signal for thunder and lightning early on Thursday but residents were shocked when the warning went on to include a rare summer hailstorm. The hailstones were not particularly large, averaging about the size of ping pong balls, though this was sufficient to cause considerable damage, affecting more than 30,000 people and destroyed 1,200 acres of crops.

Perhaps the most shocking aspect of the hailstorm were the photos on social media showing oddly shaped hailstones powerfully reminiscent of the spiked shape of the coronavirus.

Despite the unseasonal aspect of the storm, it was strangely fitting that the hail interrupted the Dragon Boat Festival traditionally held around the time of the summer solstice. The festival is held on the 5th day of the 5th month of the traditional Chinese lunisolar calendar, which is the source of the festival’s alternative name, the Double Fifth Festival. The fifth lunar month is considered an unlucky month and the fifth day is a bad day of every month. According to Chinese tradition, natural disasters and illnesses are common in the fifth month.  source

Major power orders Christians: Renounce God or we’ll cut off food and housing

China’s communist government is warning elderly Christians that they will lose basic benefits if they don’t stop practicing their faith.

Bitter Winter, the online magazine about religious liberty and human rights in China, reports the Communist Party is threatening “to take away the last means of survival from elderly believers,” the government benefits of “housing, food, clothing, medical care, and funeral expenses.”

“A Catholic from Fuzhou city in the southeastern province of Jiangxi has been receiving monthly 250 RMB (about $ 35) from the government since 2018, the year her husband died,” Bitter Winter reported.

“At the end of 2019, local government officials threatened the woman, in her 60s, that the subsidy would be withdrawn unless she removes images of Jesus from her home. ‘Because the Communist Party feeds you,’ they told the woman, ‘you must only believe in it, not God.’ Two months later, the pension was canceled because she refused to remove the symbols,” the report said. source

Brethren, do we even have to question why this tyrannical atheistic Communist giant has been plagued by hail resembling the Covid-19 Virus?  Scientists across the globe have agreed that the virus was manipulated in a Wuhan Virology lab and then released upon the world.

Our God is sometimes not too subtle with his judgements!
