Letter: Climate change is still just a swindle
First Published Apr 21 2014 06:58 pm • Last Updated Apr 21 2014 06:58 pm

In your editorial ("The rising fires," April 19) you assert "the likely culprit" in an alleged increase in wildfires is "climate change" (read "man-made global warming"). This is nothing more than another dose of unsupported, psuedo-scientific, alarmist, global-warming drivel shoveled up in support of the "climate change" fiction.

Please explain how an ongoing increase in wildfires can be attributed to "climate change," when, as the IPCC themselves acknowledge, there has been no warming now for 17 years?

Though obviously flawed computer projections continue the sole basis for the sort of global warming scare-mongering your editorial provides, here is what still remains unassailably true in the real world:

There is no real-world evidence that atmospheric CO2 ever was throughout geologic time, is now or ever will be the primary or even a significant driver of global temperature and climate. There is no real-world evidence that human use of fossil fuels ever had, has now, or ever will have primary or even significant impact on global temperature and climate trends.

Those who promote or buy into the "climate change" swindle — and it is a swindle — betray the corruption of either their minds or motives, or both.
