The phrase,'Unsound Transit', was coined by the Wall Street Journal to describe Seattle where,"Light Rail Madness eats billions that could otherwise be devoted to truly efficient transportation technologies." The Puget Sound's traffic congestion is a growing cancer on the region's prosperity. This website, captures news and expert opinion about ways to address the crisis. This is not a blog, but a knowledge base, which collects the best articles and presents them in a searchable format. My goal is to arm residents with knowledge so they can champion fact-based, rather than emotional, solutions.

What Global Warming Consensus

With thousands of scientists around the world saying the man-made global warming theory is a hoax, and far from provable, it makes one ask the question as to why proponents of it are so adamant in pursuing it, and falsely making claims they know aren't based on peer-reviewed facts.

As a matter of fact, not only is man-made global warming a hoax, the consensus alleged by whores in parts of the "scientific" community is an outright lie.

So why is all this being done? Here's a little insight offered by one online article:

"In 2000, then French President Jacques Chirac said the UN’s Kyoto Protocol represented 'the first component of an authentic global governance.' Former EU Environment Minister Margot Wallstrom said, 'Kyoto is about the economy, about leveling the playing field for big businesses worldwide.' Canadian Prime Minster Stephen Harper once dismissed Kyoto as a “'socialist scheme.'”

What a lot of people don't understand, is the battle with socialism on the corporate, business or economic level was won when capitalism and the West prevailed in the cold war. Not long after that, the only people who believed in socialism as a viable option were university professors. That tells you what's happening in our colleges to this day. We still have the messy leftovers of that era teaching our children and grandchildren.

What is even further misunderstood, is socialism and political liberalism is far from dead, and the so-called environmental movement, through many of its tentacles, is the latest attempt of socialism to keep itself relevant and reinvent itself.

It hides its agendas and purpose behind manufactured data, and in a number of cases outright lies. Think polar bears and the lies made up there. That's one of many. But they're trying to reach our children especially there, and use them to influence others to battle those bad people destroying them.

100 prominent scientists wrote to Ban Ki-MoonSecretary-General, United Nations, saying, "In stark contrast to the often repeated assertion that the science of climate change is 'settled,' significant new peer-reviewed research has cast even more doubt on the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming. But because IPCC working groups were generally instructed to consider work published only through May, 2005, these important findings are not included in their reports; i.e., the IPCC assessment reports are already materially outdated."

Here's what one screwball from enemies of mankind Friends of the Earth said recently, "A common theme was that the “solutions” to climate change that are being posed by many governments, such as nuclear power, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and biofuels are false and are not rooted in justice. Another point was that as this current ecomonic system got us here in the first place, a climate change response must have at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources."

I hope it's easy for you to see the communist, socialism in the comment from this person. From this person's viewpoint, it isn't about truth, it's about their way of looking at justice. Justice for what? Those dirty capitalists are the reason for the "global warming" problem.

The solution is of course a socialist one: "at its heart a redistribution of wealth and resources."

So what is part of the dark side of global warming? A defeated socialism which still hates business, capitalism and creation of wealth. They still are attempting to go through the back door to establish a socialist worldview, using the fear of man-made global warming, which is caused by - in their view - capitalism.

You see, this war has already been fought and won. They know that. So they use the old tool of the politics of guilt and pity to manipulate those nations that have more, to distribute it to the less productive in society. Environmentalism is their tool of choice, now that they've lost to capitalism in the economic realm.

There's a lot more to it than this, but as far as it relates to business, this should concern us all. At the United Nations climate conference, just about to end, one of the things they're trying to get enacted is a global tax administered against "wealthy nations" like the United States, which global tax advocate Othmar Schwank, who consults for Mauch Consulting, from Switzerland, says should be based on the “polluters pay principle.”

See the use of implying guilt as a tool of manipulation by Schwank? That, more than anything else, is the tactic behind attempting to advance their agendas. It's certainly not the false statement that there's a settled consensus, which they've been trying to spin through mainstream media outlets for a long time.

One of the things being attempted by these socialists, is to rape productive Americans through a global taxation system, and bring that money to emerging markets in order to compete on what they envision as a level playing field. That's just another way of saying socialism, or redistribution of wealth.

It doesn't bother them to use junk science to get their way. Why do you think they're trying to create an artificial time line that the world is going to end soon type of thinking, by saying we can't wait? It's because they know if a little time goes by, their theories will be proven wrong. Most of them already know they're wrong, they're just going with the flow and looking for some research money as well.

A fact they don't let out, is since 1998, there hasn't been any global warming increase. As a matter of fact, oceans are cooling, not warming.

Some of the things prominent scientists communicated to the UN:

Climate change is a non-problem

Have the courage to do nothing

The UN conference is a complete waste of our time and your money

We should no longer pay the slightest attention to the IPCC

We now have quite a lot of evidence that carbon emissions definitely don't cause global warming

We have the missing [human] signature [in the atmosphere],

We have the IPCC models being wrong

We have the lack of a temperature going up the last 5 years,

Warming is naturally caused and shows no human influence

Most of the people here [at the UN conference] have jobs that are very well paid and they depend on the idea that carbon emissions cause global warming. They are not going to be very receptive to the idea that well actually the science has gone off in a different direction.

All the science of the IPCC is unsound, it fails not only from the data, but it fails in the statistics, and the mathematics

There is no evidence that carbon dioxide increases are having any effect whatsoever on the climate

Official science driven by politics, money and power, goes in one direction. Unofficial science, which is more determined by what is actually happening with the [climate] data, has now started to move off in a different direction"

Carbon trading is more about fraud than it is about anything else

Poor nations and their residents that the UN policies could mean more poverty and thus more death.

Attempts to prevent global climate change from occurring are ultimately futile, and constitute a tragic misallocation of resources that would be better spent on humanity's real and pressing problems.

It is not possible to stop climate change, a natural phenomenon that has affected humanity through the ages. Geological, archaeological, oral and written histories all attest to the dramatic challenges posed to past societies from unanticipated changes in temperature, precipitation, winds and other climatic variables.

Significant new peer-reviewed research has cast even more doubt on the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming

We therefore need to equip nations to become resilient to the full range of these natural phenomena by promoting economic growth and wealth generation.

Recent observations of phenomena such as glacial retreats, sea-level rise and the migration of temperature-sensitive species are not evidence for abnormal climate change, for none of these changes has been shown to lie outside the bounds of known natural variability.

The average rate of warming of 0.1 to 0. 2 degrees Celsius per decade recorded by satellites during the late 20th century falls within known natural rates of warming and cooling over the last 10,000 years

Leading scientists, including some senior IPCC representatives, acknowledge that today's computer models cannot predict climate. Consistent with this, and despite computer projections of temperature rises, there has been no net global warming since 1998. That the current temperature plateau follows a late 20th-century period of warming is consistent with the continuation today of natural multi-decadal or millennial climate cycling.

In stark contrast to the often repeated assertion that the science of climate change is "settled," significant new peer-reviewed research has cast even more doubt on the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming.

The current UN focus on "fighting climate change," as illustrated in the Nov. 27 UN Development Programme's Human Development Report, is distracting governments from adapting to the threat of inevitable natural climate changes, whatever forms they may take. National and international planning for such changes is needed, with a focus on helping our most vulnerable citizens adapt to conditions that lie ahead. Attempts to prevent global climate change from occurring are ultimately futile, and constitute a tragic misallocation of resources that would be better spent on humanity's real and pressing problems.

The longer the supposed issue is studied, the more flawed and politically motivated the science and assertions being made are revealed to be.

This is beginning to look like one of the biggest scams in scientific history. If it wasn't so harmful it would be funny. A lot of so-called scientists will not end up unscathed as a growing body of peer-reviewed scientific work shows the science behind man-made global warming is not only flawed, it basically doesn't even exist.

Sorry Al Gore, history isn't going to leave you any legacy except that of being a buffoon.
