The Big Lie

Adolf Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf:

“…that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” – Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, vol. 1, chap X

This quote has been whittled down to the spin doctor’s maxim:

Tell a lie big enough, long enough, and people will believe it, despite facts to the contrary.

FACT: The Antarctic Ice Shelf is growing, not receding.

FACT: Temperature has risen ~ .01-degree C in sixteen years.

FACT: Carbon emissions from 1920 – 1960 correlated to exactly zero change in temperature.

FACT: The earth has experienced climate change with and without human activity throughout the geological ages.

FACT: Funding flows to crises.

FACT: The IPCC ignores data it finds inconvenient

FACT: The “hockey stick” model is false

And yet people still believe the Big Lie of Climate Change, and follow the dogma that somehow humans are responsible.  Hydrocarbon emissions are bad for a number of reasons, air quality being foremost among them. Let’s figure out how to reduce hydrocarbon emissions, but stop believing the BIG LIE because you believe no one would have the gall to “fabricate colossal untruths.”

    Awesome…

    I like the numbers on Methane Gas production – Cattle vs Humans
    And
    The fact that they have reverted to the term Climate Change (since we weren’t getting any warmer)

    Good stuff,

    Updated to add the findings of Dr. David Evans. When, oh when, will people start seeing the truth of this tremendous fraud called Climate Change?
