Some global-warming alarmists claim that even colder weather is
man-made. It seems hardly possible that every turn of the
weather can be caused by global warming and that all of that is
man-made, but they claim otherwise.
They feel that something must cause
the weather to change for the worse, and that cannot possibly be
Nature. Therefore it must be mankind that causes everything
bad. After all, so some people claim, the world without people would
be perfect, therefore the world can be perfected only if we get rid
of humanity, whom they see as a cancer on the face of the Earth.
So, they initiate a witch hunt. That has happened before when
superstitions triumphed over hard and cold scienctific facts.
When the weather trends took a turn for the worse during the onset
of the Little Ice Age the witch hunts
started, intensified every time the Little Ice Age intensified and
didn't stop until the Little Ice Age abated. (See:

Spring 2005 in Alberta
Apr. 29, 2005:
After some snow and -5.5°C the night before, the tulips were
hanging their heads a bit. The temperature never went above freezing
that day. That was what we saw in Bruderheim of the massive
cold wave that dumped 53 cm of snow in Ohio.
Apr. 30, 2005:
The following morning things weren't much
better. It had snowed some more, and the temperature had
-4.8°C over night, rising to 2.4°C during the day.
Mind you, today, the 1st of May, 2005, the day-time high was 9.8°C.
It seems that the tulips will recover.
Fall 2004 in Alberta
Sep. 9, 2004; The thermometer read 40°F,
but that is wrong. It got knocked off by the wind a couple of
times during the short and cooler than average summer we had. That
affected its accuracy. The true temperature at the time was 0.1°C

Morning view from our door to the garden. That
is what global warming is like? Wouldn't we love to hear David Suzuki explain that?
However, lately he's been keeping strangely quiet. Could it be that his alarmist ideology

the last five decades?

The temperature was 0°C (32°F) at the time the photo was taken. It was
snowing and had been snowing uninterruptedly and very lightly in most of Alberta since the
morning of the previous day. There are still no explanations from pop-scientists
like David Suzuki and his collaborating climate alarmists. It looks as if they'll just lie
low and wait things out.
If only they would drop out completely. Think of
how much that would save us in taxes about $3,000 per year per
capita. That is the price that we will be paying for Paul
Martin's $10 billion scheme for asset transfers from Canada to
underdeveloped nations, whereby we can pollute if we pay fines to
A few news items relating to the
global-warming hype and hysteria:
The calculations done by General Circulation Models (GCMs) are
the main source of the information that fuels the global warming hysteria.
Nevertheless, not one of them comes acceptably close to accurately calculating
what the climate presently is at any location, let alone of the whole Earth.
Not only that, but all of the GCMs differ widely from one another as to what the
climate was in the past, and as to what it is supposed to be in the future.
Therein lies the problem. No one in his right mind will base any decisions
about the future on tools that cannot determine with acceptable accuracy what
the present is and the past was.

Gallery of Temperature Change Data (off-site)
This is the most comprehensive compendium of temperature graphs I
have seen. It quite nicely illustrates that the only constant of
climate change is constant change. The graphs cover records and
reconstructions of temperatures covering intervals ranging from 1980 -
2007 to 542 million years before the present to now. The gallery
shows ten graphs in all.
And, yes, there were times during the past 542 million years when it was
much hotter than it is now, but there were also times when it was much
colder. It is unavoidable to conclude that we will almost
certainly soon have another interval when it will be much colder than it
presently is. In fact, the current levelling-off of the global
average annual temperature trend (something that no self-respecting
climate alarmist dares to tell the public about) could well signify the
beginning of that cold period to come.

THE FRAUD OF
True C02 Record Buried Under Gore
by Laurence Hecht,
Editor, 21st Century Science & Technology
From the article:
The historical record of atmospheric carbon
dioxide concentrations, claimed by the Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change (IPCC) as the justification for greenhouse gas
reduction, is a fraud. Research by a Freiburg, Germany
professor, Ernst-Georg Beck of the Merian-Schule, shows that the
IPCC construed and concocted the pre-1957 CO2 record from
measurements on recently drilled ice cores, ignoring more than
90,000 direct measurements [of atmospheric CO2] by
chemical methods from 1857 to 1957.1 .... (Full

(short version)," an unofficial extract, Dipl. Biol. Ernst-Georg
Beck, Merian-Schule Freiburg, 8/2006 [http://www.climatepolice.com/Co2_report.pdf],
and private communication.
Ferdinand Engelbeen has
justified and somewhat serious reservations about the
compilation by Ernst Beck. He argues that in all
likelihood only the minimum values compiled by Ernst Beck should
have been used and that those do not vary much from the values
measured in ice cores.
According to a group of scientists [leading
climate researchers from throughout the world] brought together
by documentary-maker Martin Durkin, if the planet is heating up,
it isn't your fault and there's nothing you can do about it.
We've almost begun to take it for granted that climate change is
a man-made phenomenon. But just as the environmental lobby think
they've got our attention, a group of naysayers have emerged to
slay the whole premise of global warming.
It is not likely that the video by Martin Durkin
will turn the tide of the propaganda war for the promotion of the
global-warming hype and hysteria.
As if it followed Hitler's
prescription for what constitutes successful propaganda for a single
cause, the global warming hype has become all-pervasive,
ever-present and "the one truth" that the purveyors of the
global-warming hysteria wish the masses to believe in.
Failing any intervention by outside forces, such as that by the
Allied Forces against Hitler, the global-warming hysteria is now
burning so brightly that nothing will stop it anymore until it has
burned itself out. In that process it consumes far more of the
world's economic resources than humanity can afford to lose.
Thereby it causes on a global scale, through economic stagnation and
literal starvation, the deaths of far greater numbers of people than
Hitler managed to kill directly and indirectly.
Worse yet, the economic consequences of the global-warming hype are
being imposed by the developed nations on the developing nations,
earning the developed nations hatred and perhaps worse from the
suffering developing nations. Regardless of the outcomes of
those developments, this time it is not likely that any of the
guilty will be brought to trial. They therefore continue to
lie with impunity and without fear.
Aside from that, the group of naysayers that allegedly "emerged to
slay the whole premise of global warming" did so not just now but
has done so already for quite a few years. They achieved over
the years nothing more than to put a few tiny dents and almost
invisible scratches into the shining and apparently invincible armor
of the global-warming hype.
The truth by itself will not win against all-out propaganda.
For the truth to win requires that our education systems (including
the media) spend more time and effort promoting the truth than they
do in promoting propagandistic lies.
Liar, liar, pants on fire
Suzuki walks out of AM640 after global
AM640 Toronto Radio
Feb, 15 2007 - 3:20 PM
TORONTO - Turns out noted environmental activist Dr David Suzuki
isn't as mild mannered as you may have thought. He stormed out of
our studios this morning after a debate with host John Oakley over
the merits of the Kyoto Accord. Suzuki says whether the Harper
government agrees or not, Canada is already on board with the plan.
Oakley says he welcomes all voices in the debate. Suzuki countered
by asking if he'd welcome a creationist to chat about evolution. (Full
In that interview Suzuki claimed that global warming
"nay-sayers" are "shilling" for "the fossil-fuel industry", and that

Suzuki also claimed in that interview that 2,500 scientists signed
the IPCC "report". However, the "report" was actually signed by
only 51 individuals (not all of them scientists).
Moreover, the "report" referred to by Suzuki is a summary of the IPCC report.
The IPCC report that it summarizes has not yet been published and is scheduled for publication
in July of this year. Is that perhaps to provide enough time to
make its conclusions fit the IPCC "summary" - a political statement
- that has been in the news for the last little while? (Check:

Don't ruin economy over tiny temp rise
BY MARK STEYN
Chicago Sun-Times Columnist
February 11, 2007
Mark Steyn is not too impressed by the IPCC's recent publishing of a
"summary" on a climate change report awaiting to be published only a
few months from now. He writes:
Our Thought For The Week comes from the
Boston Globe's Ellen Goodman: "I would like to say we're at a
point where global warming is impossible to deny. Let's just say
that global warming deniers are now on a par with Holocaust
deniers, though one denies the past and the other denies the
present and future."
That would be yours truly: the climate holocaust denier. ...
It bothers Mark Steyn just a tiny wee bit that
global warming during the last century has not yet added up to more
than about a 1°F increase in annual average temperatures, and yet
many people the world over have their knickers in a knot over global
warming, but you better read

Lying For Justice [so as to vilify human progress
By William Gairdner, PhD.
We have heard so much over the years about how humans are a
cancer on the face of the Earth. Not only that, but we hear
constantly that humans are the only living beings who pollute the
environment, that to kill unborn children is one of the best method
for bringing the escalating crime rates under control (Henry
Morgentaler, Canada's premier abortionist), and that to save the
environment it is absolutely necessary to bring the human population
levels down to where they were before Columbus travelled to America
or, better yet, to eradicate humanity altogether.
Here is a view that counters all of those arguments against human
nature and against human existence. The view deals with nothing new,
just things that environmental extremists did their best all along
to suppress by not even coming close to mentioning them.
November 27, 2005 at 7pm ET on CBC Newsworld
Given its full and all-out support of the hype in connection with
the announcement of the IPCC's 2007 report on global warming, it is
incredible that in its Nov. 2005 newsreport the CBC presented
information on the objective science of global climate trends.
It seems very unwise for a national news organization to present in
one year the cold, hard and objective global-warming science and not
quite two years later global-warming catastrophe propaganda that
almost entirely contradicts its earlier objective report.
It makes one think that the asylum has been taken over by its
inmates, but check the video files of the 2005 CBC program that are
entirely in accord with the global warming information compiled in
the Bruderheim REA's web pages on global warming.
Links to the 2005 CBC newsworld program
The truth presented in the preceding program was then wiped out
by the CBC's propagandistic Feb. 2007 refutation of the truth:
An 'unequivocal' truth
Global warming is man-made — and getting
worse, scientists conclude
Dear CBC, especially Peter Mansbridge, you violate one of the
first principles of successful propaganda. When you tell lies
you must tell them persistently and without flinching. Never
tell the truth one day and a lie opposing that truth the next day.
To do otherwise destroys your credibility:
Wer einmal lügt dem glaubt man nicht,
und wenn er auch die Wahrheit spricht.
That German-language maxim translated into the much more
efficient English becomes:
Once a liar, always a liar.

Long-Range U.S. Drought
Forecast (2003 03 17)
Dr. Theodor Landscheidt from the Schroeter
Institute for Research in Cycles of Solar Activity predicts that
will remain dry until 2007, upon which there will be seven to eight years of wet weather
followed by another dry period that will peak in the 2025-2030 interval.
There are good reasons to believe the prediction. Unlike the general circulation
models used by climate alarmists, Dr. Landscheidt's forecasting technique produced other
predictions that were right on the nose. Moreover, his technique accurately
simulates the climate the way it was going back to the year 1900, a level of
accuracy that the climate alarmists still only dream of and hope to be able to achieve if
only they were to receive increased funding from our hard-earned tax-dollars.
Junk Science, by William Gairdner
Why do teachers so often force-feed kids one-sided
facts and theories about the world? Wouldn't education be much more
stimulating if schools focused on broad underlying debates, instead
of assumed dogma?
For example, over the years my children have all gotten scary
lectures on "global warming." They learn that global temperatures
could rise 5 to 10 degrees celsius in the next fifty years mostly
because of burning fossil fuels. Polar ice-caps could melt. Oceans
might flood coastal cities. No wonder kids want to be tucked in at
A thorough teacher would have told them this was just one
dismal theory; there is no convincing scientific proof of global
warming. In a 1993 poll of U.S. meteorologists, 49% said there has
been no global warming, 33% said "don't know," and only 18% thought
there had been some. While we have more carbon-dioxide in the
atmosphere than a few decades ago, we had a ton more a few million
years ago - and maybe could use a lot more: global warming would be
a boon to food production worldwide....

read, but even if they can't avoid them, they would most likely blame them on global

Moreover, the "Danish Committee on Scientific Dishonesty (DCSD)

It appears that if someone tells the scientific truth and nothing but
the truth, the Scientific American will vilify him in an ad-hominem attack, and the Danish
Committee on Scientific Dishonesty will find him guilty of being systematically one-sided.
It seems that the DCSD finds fault with Bjorn Lomborg for being one-sidedly honest
and so inflexible that, unlike the Scientific American critics, he doesn't lie even a
little, not even inadvertently. What has the world come to? Being objective

On September 17, an atmospheric scientist for the Australian government,
Paul Fraser, declared that he expects the infamous "ozone hole" over the
Antarctic to be closed by 2050 as humankind reduces its
output of the chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) which have been steadily replaced in
refrigeration systems worldwide under the 1987 Montreal Protocol. But could it be
happening sooner than expected? Thirteen days later, the U.S.'s National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced that the "hole" (actually just a
thinning of the ozone layer that protects life on earth from solar radiation) had shrunk
dramatically and actually split into two smaller holes....
See the movie accessible at the
via the following links. The shrinking of the "ozone hole" is truly
astounding. What is even more amazing is a corresponding massive increase in
atmospheric ozone right next to the vanishing "ozone hole".

Mbytes) or a
(10 Mbytes) of the 2001 and 2002 ozone holes side-by-side from September 22 through

Isn't it very odd that we saw nothing about that in the
media? Does that mean that good news is not news worth reporting? Still, the
"ozone hole" is not a hole. It is a reduction in the ozone in the
atmosphere in the area over and surrounding the South Pole that reaches its peak in
September and October. The ozone content of the atmosphere is by no means uniform
over all areas of the globe and varies considerably with the seasons.
Censorship of anti-climate-alarmist scientific news
about the global environment is common-place in the media. Take the fact that the
news about the non-existent ozone hole is old news. It has been know since 1994 and

REASONS TO RE-EXAMINE KYOTO
Three recent news items give Canada good reason to re-examine the Kyoto
Accord on climate change:
The BBC reports that there is a growing group of scientists who question:
whether global warming is happening,
if it is, whether human activity is primarily responsible, and
whether the Kyoto Accords would be effective in dealing with the problem - if one
Most climate measurements are taken from weather stations near major cities, and those
cities are massive sources of heat, which can and often does distort the temperature
readings taken there. Space-based readings from satellites show much less heat buildup,
and in any case, the pattern of increase that has been recorded on earth's surface goes
back well over a century - long before the post WW II industrial explosion.
In addition, NASA reports that the polar ice caps are melting - on Mars. It's
unlikely that this is caused by too many people driving SUVs; but it could be caused by
increased solar flare activity - in which case, "global warming" is a misnomer,
and we might be looking at "solar system warming", not caused by human activity
Finally, there's question whether the anti-industrial strategies of Kyoto will be
effective at all - especially if emerging nations, with their huge and growing
populations, refuse to sign on.
The Canadian Association of Manufacturers warns that implementing the Kyoto Accords could
cost Canada 450,000 jobs. Canada's major trading partner, the United States, has
refused to implement the Kyoto Accords; that could wreak further economic havoc on Canada
if we proceeded alone.
Nevertheless, it makes sense on the intuitive level that increased industrial activity
could significantly affect the environment, and concern for stewardship of the earth - and
our desire to leave the world to our children and grandchildren in a condition at least as
good as we received it - should indeed motivate us to study the issue more closely.
There are ways in which Canada could pioneer changes that would enable industrial growth
in the emerging nations without harming the environment.
Brazil, for example, has made a major shift away from petroleum-based fuels to renewable
energy sources that are cleaner-burning i.e. ethanol. Such a change in Canada could set a
pattern that would preserve petroleum reserves for higher uses, such a petrochemical
manufacturing, help the United States get free from reliance on Middle East oil - which is
a major focus of the power manipulations of Wahabbi Islamist radicals like al-Qaida, and
benefit the environment. In addition, such a shift would eventually provide a stable
market for more than 30,000 family-sized farms right here in Canada.
It's an area of research into which Canada ought to invest major resources - and soon.

It is not very likely to happen that Canada will devote
major resources to research into global warming. After all, if the Canadian Federal
Government were truly concerned, what would be better than to measure the weather in the
Arctic, where all of that permafrost is supposed to be melting. If the government
were truly concerned, would it shut down weather monitoring stations in many
In the 1950s Canada had about 15 permanent weather monitoring stations in the
Arctic. Today only five remain, and the Federal Government announced recently that
it will shut down some more of those. Will one or two weather stations in the
Canadian Arctic be enough? Well, we didn't have them for most of the 10,000 years
civilization has been around, and life went on anyway, and people still had to pay their
There was a time when ten percent taxation caused people to revolt or
emigrate, whereas today we are quite content that 57 percent and more of our average
income going to the governments is a reasonable figure, so why not cut a corner with the
weather stations here and there. Won't that keep our taxes from going up?
Canada always had lousy weather: nine months of winter and three months of
poor sledding, but it was quite attractive to the first settlers. It had no income
tax returns, low taxes, playing cards for money, and for about 200 years no lawyers.
Still, the Canadian weather was always so extreme that Canadians never quit talking
about it since they got here. Two extremes describe the Canadian weather:
In Summer skeeters bite your nose.
In Winter nose and toes get froze.
It gets worse after that, and so does our taxation.

Charter's Unholy Ark
With today's emphasis on "honoring the past
and imagining the future," many see nothing wrong with redesigning the
"memories" of the past to reflect their vision of the future. Many environmental
visionaries have called for "new stories" that replace the old truths and
redirect our values. The message in this new ark serves the purpose well. It puts new
meaning into old memories and usurps the honor inherent in the original. But that's part
of the UN plan. There is little appreciation for God's law and His treasured covenant (the
binding agreement He made with His people long ago) in our pluralistic, postmodern age.
To fill the vacuum, even staunch Communists such as Mikhail Gorbachev call
for spiritual revival. They envision a union of religions, all molded and conformed to a
global, earth-centered spirituality. The gods, spirits and pantheistic forces of
indigenous religions fit right in. Long a promoter of the Earth Charter and its socialist
regulations, the former Soviet ruler knows well that strategic visual images inspire the
masses and speed transformation. [See The State of the World
according to Gorbachev]
So does Maurice Strong, the powerful founder and leader of the Earth Council. Though
usually hidden behind the scenes, Strong is no minor player in this global contest for the
minds of the masses. He led the UN Environmental Programme, directed the 1972 and 1992 UN
Conferences on the Environment and Development, founded Planetary Citizens, directed the
World Future Society and founded and co-chaired the World Economic Forum. He is a member
of the Club of Rome, trustee of the Rockefeller Foundation and Aspen Institute, a member of
the UN Commission on Global Governance, and Senior Advisor to the World Bank as well as to
UN Secretary General Kofi Anan [See Towards A Rapid Reaction
Capability for the UN].

Charter displayed at United Nations
In 1987, the United Nations World Commission on Environment and Development
issued a call for creation of a new charter that would set forth fundamental principles
for sustainable development. The drafting of an Earth Charter was part of the unfinished
business of the 1992 Rio Earth Summit.
In 1994 Maurice Strong, the secretary general of the Earth Summit and chair of the Earth
Council, and Mikhail Gorbachev, president of Green Cross International, launched a new
Earth Charter initiative with support from the Dutch government. An Earth Charter
Commission was formed in 1997 to oversee the project and an Earth Charter Secretariat was
established at the Earth Council in Costa Rica.

2. Is the right to water a new concept within human
The right to water is explicitly enshrined in two UN human rights
treaties - the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of
Discrimination against Women, and the Convention on the Rights of the
Child, as well in one regional treaty – the African Charter on the
Rights and Welfare of the Child. The Geneva Conventions guarantee the
protection of this right during armed conflict.
In addition, the right to water is an implicit part of the right to an
adequate standard of living and the right to the highest attainable
standard of physical and mental health, both of which are protected by
the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
However, some states continue to deny the legitimacy of this right. In
light of this fact and because of the widespread non-compliance of
States with their obligations regarding the right to water, the UN
Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights confirmed and
further defined the right to water in its General Comment No. 15.
Adopted on 26 November 2002, this document provides guidelines for
States Parties on the interpretation of this right under two articles
of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights
- Article 11 (the right to an adequate standard of living) and Article
12 (the right to health). [Source]
It makes one wonder. Do only women and children have
a right to water and to clean water? But then CEDAW is not about
it is about disfranchising men,
and the Conventions on the Rights of the Child are not about the rights
they are about
disfranchising parents, with both of those objectives serving to
the agenda for the planned
destruction of the family, so that out of the resulting rubble of
civilization a global socialist totalitarian state can be constructed.
Canada's Commitment to Earth
Worship at the Roots of Rapid Change to Canadian Law
An exploration of the history of the relationship between
Maurice Strong and Paul Martin. Maurice Strong gave Paul Martin
his his first job during summer vacation in university, hired him for
Power Corporation Canada Ltd. after Martin finished university, and
offered Martin a sweetheart deal, the purchase of Canada Steamship
Lines, that made the Martin family unbelievably rich.
Importantly, the article identifies Paul Martin's commitment to
support the plan by Maurice Strong, Michael Gorbachev, Kofi Anan and Stephen
Rockefeller to impose a universal religion of Earth worship on the world
population. The new-age religion is to replace all others.
The Canadian government provided millions
of dollars in funding for
the development and goals of Maurice Strong's new-age religion. The Canadian federal
government also provided a
in contracts to Canadian Steamship Lines,
a corporation that has most of its fleet of about 50 ships registered in
Barbados and Liberia and that uses shoddy labour practices
