Premise: Since 1990 the global-warming-adherent-establishment has been repeatedly insisting that global warming is continuously progressing or even accelerating. (The following quotations were all found in 2012. My bold emphasis is added.) These are the official positions of these organizations. They are all lies.

~The current levels of long-lived atmospheric greenhouse gases and the levels of increased CO2 and heat absorbed by the world’s oceans ensure that the climate will almost certainly continue to increase for decades, even if greenhouse gas and absorbing particle emissions are scaled back to more sustainable levels~ – American Chemical Society, current page as of January, 2012

~The American Geophysical Union (AGU) notes that human impacts on the climate system include increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, which is significantly contributing to the warming of the global climate.~ American Astronomical Society Endorsement of AGU Statement on Climate Change, June, 2004

~The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has reaffirmed the position of its Board of Directors and the leaders of 18 respected organizations, who concluded based on multiple lines of scientific evidence that global climate change caused by human activities is now underway, and it is a growing threat to society. […] The AAAS Board noted that “the pace of change and the evidence of harm have increased markedly over the last five years. The time to control greenhouse gas emissions is now.”~ – American Association for the Advancement of Science, December 4, 2009

~Human responsibility for most of the well-documented increase in global average temperatures over the last half century is well established.~ – American Geophysical Union, July 20, 2009

~Global mean temperatures have been rising steadily over the last 40 years~ American Meteorological Society, February, 2008

~The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring.~ American Physical Society, November, 2007

~The observed warming in recent decades is as expected from long-understood physics of the atmosphere.~ Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society, 2005

~Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, as is now evident from observations of increases in global average air and ocean temperatures, widespread melting of snow and ice and rising global average sea level.~ British Antarctic Survey statement endorsing the IPCC 2007 Fourth Assessment Report (AR4), 2007

~Although the Earth’s climate has changed many times throughout its history, the rapid warming seen today cannot be explained by natural processes alone.~ United States Environmental Agency, 2009

~Human activities are increasingly altering the Earth’s climate. … It is virtually certain that increasing atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases will cause global surface climate to be warmer.~ – American Institute of Physics, current policy statement as of January, 2012 from December 2004

~The 2007 Assessment Report of the UN’s climate change panel (the IPCC) – made up of the world’s foremost climate scientists – provided unequivocal evidence for a warming climate, and a high degree of certainty that human activities are largely responsible for global warming since the middle of the 20th century. However, the IPCC process is based only on information already published and even since the last Assessment Report the scientific evidence for dangerous, long-term and potentially irreversible climate change has strengthened significantly.~ – Met Office 2009 Climate science statement

~Overall global emissions continue to rise at a rate of 1% per year. Research from the Met Office Hadley Centre has shown that by delaying action on carbon emissions there is a significant risk of larger increases in temperature over those from taking early action.~ Met Office, Early action on climate change needed

~ “We’re at a stage where warming is taking place at a much faster rate [than before]”.~ Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, November, 2008

~ “This new set of data confirms the trend towards rising global temperatures and suggest that, if anything, the world is warming even more quickly than we had thought.”~ Dr Vicky Pope, head of climate change advice at the Met Office, February, 2010

~Scientists have high confidence that global temperatures will continue to rise for decades to come, largely due to greenhouse gasses produced by human activities. ~ – NASA, current page as of January, 2012

~There will always be uncertainty in understanding a system as complex as the world’s climate. However there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring. The evidence comes from direct measurements~ The first two sentences in the Joint science academies’ statement: Global response to climate change, 2005

This last statement was endorsed by literally dozens of scientific societies and associations from around the world.

A letter from October, 2009 was signed by the heads of eighteen scientific organizations claiming that “climate change is occurring” (code words for global warming).

Another statement from May, 2009 signed by thirteen representatives of international scientific organizations, this time claiming that global warming is accelerating: “However, climate change is happening even faster than previously estimated”.

1990 to 2014 Global Temperatures

Question: So, who are you going to believe? These dozens of “scientific” organizations that all have huge financial and reputational stakes in promoting their bogus theory of anthropogenic global warming – or your own eyes?

Conundrum: Every one of these dozens of organizations have claimed in recent years (and almost all still make the same claims on their websites) that global warming has been happening and is continuing to happen, and in many cases, is accelerating. You can now see for yourself the extent of the worldwide propaganda campaign promoting the supposed global warming apocalypse. It is no wonder that anyone might buy into anthropogenic global warming theory with so many presumed scientific organizations blatantly lying about their apocalyptic paranoia. And the propaganda goes right to the top. In a speech given on May 29, 2013, President Obama said:

~ “We also know that the climate is warming faster than anybody anticipated five or 10 years ago.”~

So now here comes the President of the United States making the astounding claim that even these dozens of presumed “scientific” organizations have been lowballing it for the past ten years!

Conclusion: Envirotheist “scientists” simply cannot be trusted. Their paranoia encourages them to twist anything to their advantage. Adherent Michael Mann, the author of the failed hockey stick graph recently stated:

~ “Fundamentally, I’m a climate scientist and have spent much of my career with my head buried in climate-model output and observational climate data … What is disconcerting to me and so many of my colleagues is that these tools that we’ve spent years developing increasingly are unnecessary because we can see climate change, the impacts of climate change, now, playing out in real time, on our television screens, in the 24-hour news cycle.”~

So, what you see on television is now considered evidence of anthropogenic global warming, despite that we have seen in the CSC that the empirical evidence of global temperature datasets show no global warming at all from 1990 to 2014. They want you to believe that natural disasters and everyday weather phenomena are a result of their phantom “climate change”.
