Climate Scare Over: Top Experts Expose Scam at Freedom Confab
PHOENIX — Call off the doomsday bunkers and carbon taxes! The “climate” scare is officially over. The time for hysteria over alleged man-made global warming and CO2 has passed…
In early December, various prestigious scientists and a wide range of experts in various disciplines converged here, in Phoenix, Arizona, to forever demolish the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW) alarmism and the deadly policies the alarmism underpins. After seeing the evidence, it will be impossible for the intellectually honest to go on believing the CAGW fantasy — or “cult,” as some top scientists have referred to the alarmist movement.
The hard-hitting conference was organized by longtime liberty movement leader G. Edward Griffin and his pro-liberty organization, Freedom Force International. Under the banner of “Global Warming: an Inconvenient Lie,” Freedom Force’s 3rd Congress ran from December 2 to December 4 at The Buttes resort in Phoenix, Arizona. Attendees and speakers came from across America, Canada, and Europe to learn and participate in what organizers described as a “gathering of the world’s top experts on this subject who completely demolished the myth of anthropogenic (man-caused) global-warming.”
Princeton Physics Professor William Happer, began his presentation by demolishing the pseudo-science underpinning climate hysteria. Dr. Happer, a co-author of one of the early books on global warming, and a former director of energy research at the U.S. Department of Energy, started off by debunking a key point in the warming scare: The myth, constantly parroted by politicians, bureaucrats, and gullible people, that CO2 is “pollution.”
“We’ve heard that CO2 is a demon molecule that causes global warming,” he explained, noting that the earth was getting greener and crop yields were increasing in response to more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. “We should tell the truth: CO2 will benefit the Earth.” He also showed that, in the Earth’s past, CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere were far, far higher than they are today. “It is measured in thousands of parts per million rather than hundreds, as we have today,” he said, adding that humans exhale about two pounds of CO2 each day just by breathing.
Dr. Happer explained that plants were actually “designed” to live in a more CO2-rich environment than currently exists. In fact, virtually all plants benefit from more CO2, which is why farmers pump it into their greenhouses. An early experiment on the subject was conducted in Arizona, showing that plants grow much, much faster and better when CO2 concentrations are doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled. “The EPA is just completely bonkers,” the professor exclaimed, pointing to the agency’s bizarre and harmful war on the gas of life.
