The alleged dissenters in this article are correct. Obama-Biden climate adviser Purvis says AGW is about 3 things, none of which are climate (reducing industry, sending money out of the US, and increasing power of the UN. 3 top UN climate officials, Edenhofer, Pachauri, and Figueres, say it's about cash not climate. Media was informed of lack of scientific rigor, link to copy of email to USA Today's Doyle Rice from NASA, Aug. 29, 2007, but kept the news to itself. The 'climate' industry is "Too big to Fail."
1/21/12, "South Florida climate change plan attacked," Sun-Sentinel, D. Fleshler
"A South Florida plan to prepare for rising sea levels and other consequences of climate change has drawn intense criticism from a small segment of the public who see a conspiracy to weaken the United States.
"Bogus science." "Socialist power grab." "A UN-based manmade global warming agenda that will tangle us all up in a nightmare."
These are among the public comments received in response to the Draft Southeast Florida Regional Climate Action Plan, produced by Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties. The plan contains 108 recommendations, including redesigning low-lying roads and moving drinking-water wells inland.
Like similar actions elsewhere in the United States, it has run into the intensely held belief among a portion of the public that climate change is a fraud, perpetrated to destroy property rights, raise taxes and ruin the economy. Although national and international scientific panels have concluded that climate change is real and human-caused, critics disagree.
"Anyone of even modest intelligence should be able to see that it is nothing more than One-World, global, Socialist power grab to deny rights and exert control over everyone and everything on the entire planet under control of a so-called Intelligentsia or Power Elite," wrote one commenter, Jeff Vanderslice. "If you really believe this Climate Change/Global Warming BS, you're either part of the conspiracy, incredibly duped, or outright stupid."
Wrote Donald Sexauer: "The whole global warming theory is based on bogus findings that tried to hold down the beliefs of dissenting scientists."
"The Progressive Elite need taxes … and we all know they will lie, cheat and steal to get it," wrote Doug Weber. "Forget it folks, the science is a fraud."
John Van Leer, associate professor of meteorology and physical oceanography at the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School for Marine and Atmospheric Science, said the existence of climate-change deniers should not influence decision makers....
He said their views result largely from a corporate disinformation campaign,*** abetted by elements of the media that use a handful of dissenters to give the false impression that the scientific community is split on the issue.
"The fact of the matter is there were two recent surveys that polled climate scientists," said Van Leer, a technical advisor to the four-county group. "One found that 97 percent thought global warming is real and that people are responsible, the other found 98 percent. You can't say there's zero dissent, but for the scientific community to have this sort of agreement is amazing."
Prominent scientific organizations have endorsed the reality of climate change, including American Meteorological Society, American Geophysical Union, National Academy of Sciences, American Association for the Advancement of Science and World Meteorological Organization.
Comments are being accepted through March 16. A new draft will be prepared and taken for approval to the four county commissions. Of the 25 comments received so far, most came from government agencies or non-profit groups and called for various changes to improve it. Nine from the general public saw the entire enterprise as a fraud, a number augmented by the dozens who wrote critical comments on newspaper web pages.
Gary K. Runge, of Coral Springs, submitted a comment to Broward County that the officials who produced the plan were the unwitting dupes of a United Nations attack on U.S. sovereignty called Agenda 21. The 1992 document is blueprint for sustainable development adopted a UN environmental conference.
"You are now into international politics, whether you like it or not and are no longer just a County Government entity, but a pawn in a huge insidious plan that adversely affects Florida," he wrote."...
- [Ed. note: The Obama-Biden adviser stated the same thing. The commenter is right.]
(continuing, Sun-Sentinel): "Van Leer said the science of climate change results from rigorous research that has stood up to the scrutiny of the scientific community. "...
- [Ed. note: Again, not true, NASA email to media via FOIA. Also, original data has all been discarded and can't be checked.]
(continuing, Sun-Sentinel): ""It's a hard-nosed business," he said. "It's not easy to get papers published because they're going to be scrutinized, and it has to be based on proof.""
***The single most important figure in shining a light on the UN based 'climate' industry is a retired gentleman who lives in a modest home in Toronto, Canada. Steve McIntyre has a background in mathematics and earth science which has guided his research. He works on his own time for no pay. The 'climate' industry is too big to fail so they try to silence dissent by saying it's 'corporate interests.'
The global warming industry and its 'financial interests' are in control of the UK. The negative consequences of that include needless suffering and death. In Scotland the Transport minister was forced to resign for ignoring and failing to prepare for oncoming snow and cold weather. On his way out he still said he was proudest of shepherding global warming programs and through the Scot legislature. In Scotland they actually injected more CO2 into the air by flying a fish from a southern to a northern Scotland waterway in case global warming took over in the south.
