The “global warming” hoax: 30 years of failed predictions that never happened
Once upon a time in the late 1980s, the Left devised a behavioral modification scheme aimed at one thing: Future control of as much of the population as possible.
The problem was convincing enough Americans to willingly go along with the plan — a scheme most would never voluntarily agree to because it would involve radical deindustrialization and modification of their lifestyles.
They settled on human-caused “global warming” — the determination that modern existence was causing the planet to heat up so much all life would soon be exterminated…if we didn’t stop being so modern.
The crackpot theory was first introduced by NASA ‘scientist’ Dr. James Hansen in testimony before the U.S. Senate in 1988: “Global warming has begun.”
As reported June 24 of that year by The New York Times:
The earth has been warmer in the first five months of this year than in any comparable period since measurements began 130 years ago, and the higher temperatures can now be attributed to a long-expected global warming trend linked to pollution, a space agency scientist reported today.
At the time, Hansen — said to be a “leading expert on climate change” — told a Senate committee that he was “99 percent certain” that the warming trend of the day wasn’t due to natural Earth variations but instead was being “caused by a buildup of carbon dioxide and other artificial gases in the atmosphere,” the Times reported.
The Times intoned with this dire warning: “If Dr. Hansen and other scientists are correct, then humans, by burning of fossil fuels and other activities, have altered the global climate in a manner that will affect life on earth for centuries to come.”
