Mark Caserta: Our planet in peril from progressives, not global warming

The myth of “man-made” global warming may be the largest progressive hoax ever perpetrated on mankind. The climate may be changing, but it’s not because of your SUV.

John Coleman, a former television weather forecaster who worked in the meteorological field for over six decades and pioneered the use of TV weather forecasting elements such as onscreen satellite technology and computer graphics, agrees.

“Global Warming is a SCAM.” Coleman wrote in a 2007, widely-reproduced essay on global warming.

“It is the greatest scam in history. I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Some dastardly scientists with environmental and political motives manipulated long-term scientific data back in the late 1990s to create an illusion of rapid global warming.

Coleman asserts in his essay that like-minded scientists “jumped into the environmental circle” manufacturing a false consensus designed to support and broaden “research” propagating the “totally slanted, bogus global warming claims” to steer huge research grants their way.

Mr. Coleman isn’t alone. Reputable scientists, as well as hundreds of meteorologists, openly refute the idea of manmade global warming or “anthropogenic global warming,” with some very solid research available online.

One such well-known scientist is founder of the Creation Museum and The Ark Encounter, creationist Ken Ham. A 2014 column in Salon, by Lindsay Abrams, shares Ham’s views.

“Yes, the climate is changing, but it’s not a result of human activity.”

“Starting from the Bible, we know that there was a global flood a few thousand years ago that completely changed Earth’s surface and climate, and that the earth is still settling down from this catastrophe,” Ham said in a blog post. “So, we should expect there to be some variations in climate change, but this is not alarming and is not the direct result of modern human activity.”

Yet, environmentalists seem less concerned with facts than they do perpetuating a myth that lines their pockets with grant money, compliments of your tax dollars.

But recently, in a refreshing show of leadership, President Trump saved Americans millions of dollars by reaffirming his intention with the United Nations to fulfill his campaign pledge to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement.

Given the fraudulent nature of man-made climate change, The Heritage Foundation correctly assesses the top reasons for U.S. withdrawal.

The Paris Agreement is highly costly and would do nil to address climate change. If carried out, the energy regulations agreed upon by the Obama administration would destroy thousands of American jobs.

Withdrawal is good for American energy competitiveness. “We’re seeing jobs coming back,” according to a spokesman for the National Mining Association. “We’re seeing mines open in states from West Virginia, Kentucky, all the way to Pennsylvania. We’ve seen coal production coming back about 20 percent year over year ” since President Trump was elected.

Yes, earth’s climate is changing – it always has. But mankind’s activities haven’t overwhelmed or significantly impacted nature’s order.

Our planet isn’t in peril from mankind, only from progressives who would seize control of your money under the guise of environmental austerity.
