The Kyoto Fraud

"Climate Catastrophe Cancelled: What You're Not Being Told About the Science of Climate Change".

Video here from "Friends of Science".

Peter Worthington

The video starts out showing an almost hysterical Jean Chretien shouting in the Commons that unless Kyoto is adopted, Canadians will be dying in 30 years because of bad air. His environment minister, David Anderson, calls global emissions the world's most severe problem -- "more severe even than terrorism."

David Suzuki waves his arms and says Kyoto is needed because "rich countries use more than their share of the atmosphere."(?) Opposition environment critic Bob Mills demands quick adoption, as do the NDP's Jack Layton, Finance Minister Ralph Goodale, and present Environment Minister Stephane Dion, whose passion verges on frenzy.

Then, in the video, scientists take over, and point out that the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is more political than scientific, and that its graphs and themes depicting greenhouse gases as a potential "climate catastrophe" can't be supported.

Scientifically, we know little about climate, which is always changing. We can't even predict the weather more than 10 days ahead, much less changes in climate.

The skeptical scientists argue the IPCC is a political body set up to supply evidence to support the theory that disaster lies ahead unless Kyoto is adopted. Canada doesn't question IPCC findings.
