January 19, 2024 The Sun Bay Paper Page 10 Environmental MSM… MISLEADING AMERICA! NO MATTER WHAT NASA, JOHN COLEMAN PHD (WEATHER CHANNEL), PATRICK MOORE PHD (CO-FOUNDER GREENPEACE), DR. ARTHUR ROBINSON (HEARTLAND INSTITUTE BOARD OF DIRECTORS), 31,000 SCIENTISTS OR I SAY...IGNORANT JOURNALISTS WILL CONTINUE TO CLAIM OPINIONS AS FACTS...for as long as the ignorant Mainstream Media (MSM) allows! All part of a planned coup to take over America! I will not stop reporting/repeating the truth! America deserves the truth!! The NY Times continuously runs undocumented columns on environmental issues by writers whose credentials are either nonexistent or not displayed. The most I’ve seen is, “Science Journalists” next to their names. What is that? These writers put forth their opinions as facts when details expose that they are NOT facts ...just uninformed opinions. Opinions are fi ne...just tell your readers either your sources with data or your writings are unverifi ed opinions. That is very serious when you are trying to scare your readers into believing that “Global Warming” is dangerous as is “Climate Change” when nothing can be further than the truth. There is no verifi able evidence that there even is Global Warming and Climate Change deserves to be the “Biggest Threat to America” ...Joe Obiden’s words! Recently The Times ran a column by Raymond Zhong and Keith Collins, titled, “2023 Marked Hottest Year on Earth in The Last 150” ...WOW! I off er we place that broad statement right up there with Al Gore and the IPCC prediction that “The glaciers will melt, Manhattan will fl ood, and the polar bears will go extinct” ...Well did they? No, in fact...none of that happened or even came close, nor will it! Here’s the problem with their report. Even if it worthy of a BOLD headline meant to scare and not inform? Your statement makes a one-year study suspicious and compares it to 150 years and then wants to draw a signifi cance. Wrong! The comparison should be to a planet of unknown age... Earth! Unknown for certain and scientists cannot agree, so we’ll pick an estimate of 5,000,000,000 years. The signifi cance, scientifi cally, of your info is 1/5,000,000,000 %!? Where did that useless info come from? Was it the UN IPCC as I suspect? Exactly how were those GLOBAL temperatures measured, where, by whom were the temperatures measured...the IPCC did an 18-year study, costing millions of US dollars, producing a model that they (UN IPCC) used to predict temperatures that all these writers were representing. We don’t know for certain ...but I’ll bet the Times uses info from the IPCC all the time. That’s good because NASA shot down the UN IPCC at the 2015 Paris accord! Let’s address the accuracy of the IPCC data and predictions that people make relying upon the IPCC...a mistake, my opinion! In 2015 NASA did a thorough study of the Antarctic Land Mass Ice Pack by drilling thousands of holes, carbon dating and measuring temperatures and other tests. Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth. The average temperature in the winter is minus 34.4 Celsius (minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit). The temperature in the center of Antarctica is much lower than the temperature on the coasts. The lowest temperature ever recorded in Antarctica was minus 89.4 C (minus 129 F). NASA... “NEWS | November 5, 2015 Study: Mass gains of Antarctic ice sheet greater than losses By Maria-José Viñas, NASA’s Earth Science News Team NOTE: The fi ndings reported here confl ict with over a decade of other measurements, including previous NASA studies. However, challenges to existing fi ndings are an integral part of the scientifi c process and can help clarify and advance understanding. Additional scrutiny and follow-up research will be required before this study can be reconciled with the preponderance of evidence supporting the widely accepted model of a shrinking Antarctic ice sheet. A new NASA study says that an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from its thinning glaciers. The research challenges the conclusions of other studies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report, which says that Antarctica is overall losing land ice...” NASA made the presentation in 2015 to the Paris accord and, summarizing, reported the Antarctic Ice Land Mass is thicker, colder, and larger than it was 10,000 years ago. Real scientists would not make any global assumptions by such a “small” sampling as only 10,000 years compared to 5 billion years but did make a conclusion on the IPCC 18-year study and model. That was the model Al Gore used to predict the glaciers are melting and polar bears dying, and NY City will be under water...the IPCC Model predicts NOTHING and is USELESS, according to NASA. The result was an investigation into IPCC, ethics, procedures, and accuracy by many including John Coleman. Dr Coleman compared, for himself, IPCC raw data to actual recorded temperatures and there was no correlation in their million dollars model... useless! Several members of the IPCC resigned as a result of their “Cooking the books”. If you ask NASA if CO₂ causes holes in the Ozone they answer “Yes and NO” ...that means they don’t know but want to be politically correct, my opinion! The Times reporters use scare tactics at every level... For example... “The numbers are in, and scientists (names?) can now confi rm what month after month of extraordinary heat worldwide began signaling long ago. Last year was Earth’s warmest by far in a century and a half.” “To climate scientists (names?), it comes as no surprise that unabated emissions of greenhouse gases caused global warming to reach new highs”. “Averaged across last year, temperatures worldwide were...2.66 Fahrenheit, higher than they were in the “second half of the 19th century”, the European climate monitor announced Tuesday”. I challenge the reliability of this information. “Temperatures Worldwide” in the late 1800s, c’mon man...really?? Who could or would collect temperatures in the late 1800’s in Europe and who are you fooling...2.66 in 1800 ...The Mercury thermometer wasn’t invented until 1714 and available until late 1850’s. Think about it... not believable at all! Now here’s what Scientists say...well over 30,000...names and identifi cation are online... From Heartland Institute... Dr. Arthur B. Robinson served on the Board of Directors of The Heartland Institute from 2016 to 2019. He is also a senior fellow for environment policy at Heartland and the namesake of Heartland’s Arthur B. Robinson Center on Climate and Environmental Policy. Beginning in 1997, Dr. Robinson, along with his son Noah, Dr. Frederick Seitz, Dr. Sallie Baliunas, Dr. Willie Soon, and others, organized the Petition Project, a statement fi rmly rejecting global warming alarmism eventually signed by more than 31,000 U.S. scientists. Dr. Robinson updated and re-issued the petition in 2007 and continues to maintain it as the world’s largest directory of scientists who reject global warming alarmism. The petition in its entirety reads, “We urge the United States government to reject the global warming agreement that was written in Kyoto, Japan in December 1997, and any other similar proposals. The proposed limits on greenhouse gases would harm the environment, hinder the advance of science and technology, and damage the health and welfare of mankind. There is no convincing scientifi c evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientifi c evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many benefi cial eff ects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.” Patrick Moore, PhD, and Co-Founder of Greenpeace came forward with things he held in for years because they were not the truth. When he couldn’t take it anymore, he resigned and went public on many signifi cant environmental issues. For example, the Rainbow Warrior is a faux sailboat, according to Dr Moore. He never saw the sails propel the vessel! It was just for show! There are two huge electromotive engines that are operated by diesel generators. They use thousands of gallons of diesel! He also said that our trees and green life that make oxygen by photosynthesis, need 2000 ppm CO₂ to fl ourish and 200 ppm to exist. We are around 450 ppm ...not enough! He also said if you have a greenhouse of plants and veggies that are not doing well... put your car exhaust into the greenhouse overnight and see the diff erence. Why not put huge greenhouses around all fossil fuel plants and run the exhaust through the greenhouses, my idea. Then invite Democrap members of Congress to take tours...on a regular basis! knows very little about the relationships between fossil fuels and Mother Earth. Each year excess carbon falls into the oceans and benefi ts plant growth, fi sh, then hasn’t fi gured out how or why. Science has no idea how long the Earth has been here, but does know that the Sun, Earth’s orbit around the Sun, the Earth spinning on her axis and eff ects on Earth by our moon, stars, other planets, have the most impact on Earth and cause our weather, climate, temperatures, climate changes! To do stupid things like taking away fossil fuels is a violation of our Bill of Rights, the Constitution and our unalienable Rights to Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. J. Gary DiLaura
