RUSH: The Global Warming Additional Stack headline. From yesterday, November 29th, from the UK Scotsman: "Warming Will Wipe Out Billions -- Only 10% Will Survive Global Warming." The warmers are trying to terrify everybody into signing onto this Copenhagen treaty -- and worse. Now, somebody explain to me how it is that they are not terrorists. This is a pure terror tactic. The people at the IPCC -- the UN, the people at Hadley, the people in the media, Algore -- are terrorizing people around the world and in this country. Gore specifically -- and don't forget Gore's quote. Gore's quote, let me call it up here for you real quickly. We're getting the audio of this. Algore once said of George W. Bush, "He betrayed this country. He played on our fears."
"Warming Will Wipe Out Billions -- Only 10% Will Survive Global Warming." We've also got some great audio sound bites on this coming up. Hang in there. Here's the next headline. "Only 10% will survive global warming," and that quote in the story that I just read from The Scotsman is from the head of the Tyndall Centre. That report and crazy quotes, other crazy quotes in the story, "only 10% will survive," are from professor Kevin Anderson, who is director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change. The Tyndall Centre looms large in the CRU, the Climate Research Unit e-mails. This is not a conspiracy, folks. This is a cabal! This is a cabal of thugs masquerading as scientists to advance a worldwide leftist agenda. You know, when you read these e-mails -- and I've read a fair number of them; because, of course, this is a very passionate issue to me.
One of the themes of the e-mails that have been released is how people at the Climate Research Unit are constantly trying to shake down the oil companies -- Exxon, Shell -- for money and for partnerships, just like the reverends Jackson and Sharpton have done. They talk about it openly, how they're constantly trying to shake down the oil companies. The only thing man-made about global warming is the theory behind it. What you are going to do with people who are even willing to lie about the weather? Oh! I think it's a related story. "Somali pirates seized a tanker carrying more than $20 million of crude oil from Saudi Arabia to the United States in the increasingly dangerous waters off east Africa an official said Monday, an attack that could pose a huge environmental or security threat." Really? They hijacked an oil tanker; it's an environmental threat.
Now, if these little pirates, these Somali pirates, if they were smart, they would threaten to burn the oil unless the Copenhagen crowd gave them a billion or so bucks. I mean, if they're out after money and Copenhagen is out to fleece the world, particularly the United States, why don't these guys do a Saddam Hussein and threaten to set the whole ship on fire just like Saddam did in the desert at the end of the first Gulf War. He lit up all his oil fields. Get these guys to threaten to do the same thing. I mean, this is pretty much what the global warming shakedown is all about: The redistribution of wealth from the first world to the third. The Somali pirates are the Third World. They can say, "Hey, IPCC! We know you're working for us. We know you're trying to get money so you can give it to us. Well, here. We're just going to get the direct route. We're going to get it from you. We're going to threaten to set this ship on fire." (sigh)
It's just mind-boggling. "Western Lifestyle Unsustainable, Says Climate Expert Rajendra Pachauri." This is from yesterday as well by James Randerson in the UK Guardian. "Western Lifestyle Unsustainable, Says Climate Expert Rajendra Pachauri." He heads up the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for the United Nations. "Hotel guests should have their electricity monitored; hefty aviation taxes should be introduced to deter people from flying; and iced water in restaurants should be curtailed, the world's leading climate scientist has told the Observer," which is a section of the UK Guardian. Western lifestyle "unsustainable." It's terrorism on parade disguised as man-made global warming. By the way, lest we forget: Mr. Rajendra Pachauri, the head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change at the United Nations was also awarded a Nobel Prize along with Algore for his work. But, notice it was a Peace Prize; it was not the science prize.
This clown, the head of the IPCC, and Gore got the Nobel Peace Prize. Remember? They shared it, the IPCC and Algore. These are a bunch of crooks, leftist thugs and crooks. From Wednesday 11 June 2008 from the press release of the University of East Anglia. This is from last summer. "The University of East Anglia, particularly its Climate Research Unit, is the only university to be included in a list of the key bodies that have set the environmental agenda in the UK over the past 30 years." So the CRU, University of East Anglia, claimed they set the agenda on climate change -- and who besides the head of the IPCC can deny it? Nobody can deny it. They have set the agenda. One man, Phil Jones -- and his 150-year temperature record, which is a hoax and a fraud -- is largely responsible for all of this. Western lifestyles unsustainable. It is an attack on capitalism, it is an attack on freedom, and it is ongoing -- and it's not just happening in the global warming movement. It's happening in the Obama health care movement. It's happening in the cap-and-trade movement. It's happening in the card check movement. It's happening in the amnesty-for-illegals movement. Everything the left does should be seen as an attack on freedom. That's how it should be understood.
RUSH: And one more little story here, ladies and gentlemen, and this is from Tuesday, November 24th, from the BBC: "Climate 'Is a Major Cause' of Conflict in Africa,"and they have a picture up close of a poor, destitute African woman, hands to her face, crying tears. "Climate has been a major driver of armed conflict in Africa, research shows -- and future warming is likely to increase the number of deaths from war." They're doubling down on it. It's just breathtaking to behold this. They're so predictable. We knew they were going to circle the wagons. We knew that they were going to take this head on. And the fact that people are calling here and commenting on this in a political fashion proves that global warming is a political movement that has nothing whatsoever to do with science.
RUSH: Okay, to the phones, to Buffalo, New York. This is Steve. Welcome, sir. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Hey, ditto. How are you today, Rush?
RUSH: Fine, sir. Thank you.
CALLER: Good. I consider myself a Libertarianist. And I absolutely disagree with the fact that this is a politically driven agenda. The way I feel on this is, throughout history, throughout time, many changes in the climate have occurred, which has caused mass extinction. We can measure this in cycles. We have cold periods, we have warm periods. The various changes usually occur by natural, you know, things that happen in the earth. Do we agree?
RUSH: So far, but I'm not going to stipulate to the premise that thousands of species, or there have been thousands of extinctions. We keep discovering new species.
CALLER: That's absolutely correct. Now, I agree with you for the most part that at this current juncture there isn't enough research and hard science to base that the vehicles we're driving, the pollutants that we're emitting into the air is going to cause a man-made total collapse the way they're making it seem. I agree that in the way that they're spinning it, it is disgusting to listen to. However, I disagree in what you're saying is that we should not investigate this. Because we can measure and because we know for sure that there have been many changes --
RUSH: Wait a second, wait a second. Man, you were heading down the right path, you came to a fork in the road and you took it. There has been and there is continually being produced document after document after document, research paper after research paper after research paper proving that the earth is not even warming, much less that we have anything to do with it! Sorry, my blood pressure is okay, folks. I just don't suffer fools well. Don't you understand, you call here and you want to sound so reasonable and so open-minded and then say that we aren't looking into it. That's how we have discovered that it is a hoax! The people that are producing the research that shows all of this is a lie can't get published in these so-called distinguished journals. They are ridiculed and impugned; they are laughed at; they are discredited and made fun of. They are out there. This consensus of scientists does not agree and it does not exist. All of this is totally made up.
Now, you're right, the earth warms and the earth cools, and there's not a damn thing we can do about it either way. If we can't fix it, we didn't cause it, and we can't fix it. It's silly to even discuss this anymore. This is the point. It's silly to discuss it. There is no manmade global warming. It's been made up from the get-go because it is purely political. And the fact that anybody wants to now dispute the real science and the temperature record in the last ten years, it ain't getting warmer. There aren't more hurricanes, and they aren't more violent. None of this is happening. The sea levels are not rising, the glaciers are not melting. It's all been Photoshopped. There is no evidence to support this, yet people want to call and argue about it, which means it is purely political. It always has been, and that is what I, your host, knew from the first moment I heard the first scientist for the first time on television on This Week with Brinkley on a Sunday in 1984 say we've only got 20 years left. I knew it was political. And then I heard what they said we have to do, we have to reduce our lifestyles; we have to stop making progress.
I knew it was political because I know liberals. I know liberals hate capitalism and consider it an enemy. So how best to win if you're a liberal? Destroy capitalism, ergo, man-made global warming. And look at the headlines just today: "Western Civilization, Western Lifestyles Unsustainable." "Only 10% of the World's Population will Survive Global Warming." "Global Warming is Causing Conflict and War in Africa." No, it's not. It's something called poverty. Get 'em running water, get 'em electricity, and get 'em DDT. Get rid of dictators and Africa will join the league of First World nations in time. But if you're going to deny Africa DDT, if you're going to deny Africa the right to develop, if you're going to deny Africa running water and electricity, then you're always going to have a Third World country with a few exceptions on the continent. It's called poverty. Poverty results from liberalism. Poverty results from socialism. The problem with poverty around the world is there hasn't been enough distribution of capitalism.
Capitalism is now under assault in the one great place in this country that made it the greatest country on the face of the earth, a country that the left despises. Leftists in this country and in other countries despise this country. And every one of their policies, either at the UN or in Washington, is designed to take down this country. Make no mistake about it. You cannot ignore it any longer. You cannot say, "Rush, that sounds a little extreme. I just don't want to think that there are people living in this country that would do this." You're voting for them. It happens. It's happening right under your nose. It's called Obamacare. It's called health insurance reform. It's called cap and trade. It's called TARP. It's called the stimulus bill. This president has spent three-and-a-half trillion dollars in his first year in office and it ain't over. That is a record. It's three-and-a-half trillion dollars we do not have. It is designed to bankrupt this country and to allow Obama to join the rest of the leftists around the world and raise taxes on everybody in this country, income taxes and every other kind of tax, the purpose of which is twofold: to fund an ever-growing government, but more importantly, to prevent the creation of wealth, to provide a roadblock to the creation of wealth.
The more that is taxed from you, the less disposable income you have to invest and to live on the less likely you are to assume and acquire wealth. That's for the elitists to have and they're going to get their wealth by taking yours and mine and everybody else's. And they're going to do it under the guise of saving the planet or creating jobs or reforming health care or reducing greenhouse gases or saving the financial institutions or saving the banks or making sure nobody defaults on their mortgage or making sure nobody has to pay on their mortgage. Whatever it is, everything going on right now is an assault on you and your family, your children, and their grandchildren, your grandchildren and their effort to acquire individual wealth. When that happens, fewer and fewer people own property, and the ownership of private property is as fundamental to freedom as is the First Amendment to our Constitution. All ten amendments are under assault. The people of this country got hoodwinked and bamboozled and have elected an international socialist who has no particular desire or love or appreciation for American exceptionalism, and he's marching through with all the weapons at his disposal: ACORN, a Democrat majority in Congress, a compliant media, and science. The Four Corners of Deceit: Academia, government, science and media.
RUSH: Couple more climate stories. Here's just a headline here: "UN scientists turn on each other: UN Scientist Declares ClimateGate colleagues Mann, Jones and Rahmstorf 'should be barred from the IPCC process' -- They are 'not credible any more.'" A-ha! So a UN scientist finally realizes what's happening here and so these three guys, it looks like the UN wants to throw 'em overboard in order to save the whole movement. Because, remember, now, the UN's climate science guy is out there saying, "Those e-mails? (grumbling) That doesn't change the science here." Of course it changes! They're making it up. The Hadley unit, the CRU at East Anglia was the basis for the IPCC! You cannot throw out Phil Jones, Michael Mann, and Rahmstorf without throwing out the whole IPCC. So if the UN scientists are going to throw these guys out they gotta throw out the whole organization, because it's all corrupt. It's all fabricated on lies. None of it is true.
The story right here I have is also just breaking on Fox News by George Russell: "Environmentalism should be regarded on the same level with religion 'as the only compelling, value-based narrative available to humanity,' according to a paper written two years ago to influence the future strategy of the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP), the world's would-be environmental watchdog." I believe, ladies and gentlemen -- not to pat myself on the back, but I believe -- it was I, early on, who advised looking at the environmental movement as just another religion. They can't prove it. It requires total faith. In fact, I remember I said that and I remember a speech that I quoted from Michael Crichton in which he had the most startling comparison to the first verses of Genesis about how the world was created by God.
We had the Garden of Eden, purity, bliss, happiness, peace, love, planet, abundance, wonderful -- and then people came along and corrupted it (particularly a woman: Eve) and ever since then everything's been corrupt. He said the environmental movement has every element in it, including the Book of Revelation, which is the ultimate destruction of the planet! It is a religion, and now the United Nations, in a paper two years ago, admits it. "Environmentalism should be regarded on the same level with religion," quote, now: "'as the only compelling value-based narrative available to humanity.'" The only compelling value-based narrative available to humanity! This is in a paper "written two years ago to influence the future strategy of the United Nations Environmental Program, the world's would-be environmental watchdog." They admit it. It is a religion.
RUSH: We need to remember something about these climatic research unit e-mails at East Anglia University. These are only a tiny fraction of what there must be, folks. This group has been in operation for 30 years, only about a thousand e-mails and a couple of documents here. This operation has been in business for 30 years. We're just seeing a very tiny part of what they were up to, and it's clear that what we have seen were not cherry-picked by somebody. There's nothing out of context here. In fact if you read these e-mails in real language, the way people really talk to each other let me tell you what these e-mails all say: "If this gets out, we're screwed." That's what these e-mails say.
I got a long story here. I'm not even going to try to read it to you. I know it's brilliant. Somebody has discovered the source code to their computer modeling and found it to be as fraudulent as anything. Something the media ought to be doing, just an average journalist, average computer guy going through it has found the source code for their computer modeling. I'll tell you what it is because I want the website to link to it here in just a second. I already put that section of the stack at the bottom of the stack so I gotta go to the bottom of the stack where it is and find it.
Now, let's talk a little bit about the expert, the head honcho of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change at the UN, Mr. Rajendra Pachauri, who says, hey, a couple rogue e-mails, ah, no big deal. In fact, here's what he said: "The processes in the IPCC are so robust, so inclusive, that even if an author or two has a particular bias it is completely unlikely that bias will find its way into the IPCC report." Now, either this guy is clueless about the real process, or he is lying. I think he's lying because this man is not a climate scientist, he's an economist. I'll share with you his resume in mere moments. It is well known throughout the scientific community that any and all submitted comments critical of the IPCC Report are brushed off. The summary for policy makers portion of the report is finished first. The summary for policy makers portion, that's what gets released, the summary, and so nobody ever looks at the internals. The scientific details in the body of the report are then modified so they do not contradict the conclusions the politicians want. The IPCC reports are pure bias. That's the whole point. They are codified bias. The whole global warming movement, which, by the way, when the earth started cooling note the change to climate change? Did you notice that? I mean that's clear evidence it's political.
RUSH: I wanted to look at the education of the head honcho of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change because, remember, Ed Begley told us last week to listen to climate scientists, so I would assume that Rajendra Pachauri is a climate scientist. So I looked. He was educated at the La Martiniere College in Lucknow and the Indian Railways Institute of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering in Jamalpur, Bihar. HEC Paris appointed Pachauri Professor Honoris Causa in October 2009. He served as Assistant Professor and Visiting Faculty Member in the Department of Economics and Business at NC State. Pachauri was awarded an MS degree in Industrial Engineering from North Carolina State University, Raleigh, in 1972, as well as a joint Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering and Economics in 1974.
He is not a climate scientist. He is an economist, and this is all about economics. Health care is all about economics, redistribution of wealth. That's all this is about, as I have instinctively known since I first heard about this. Now, there's another story that is much too long for me to even reference here, but I'm going to give the link, I already gave the link to Koko. I want Koko to post this on the website, RushLimbaugh.com. It's from the Canada Free Press: "The Scientists Involved in Deliberately Deceiving the World on Climate -- The Public and Mainstream Media Still Don't Grasp the Implications." What this has and what this story needs is faces and names, the names of the hoaxers and their faces and pictures of them in meetings. It prints out to eight pages or six pages.
These pictures go all the way back to the mid-1980s, these people getting together, and it's interesting reading as well. But more importantly, it names names, it places pictures -- Phil Jones, Michael Mann, all of these people are here, and there's an unsung hero here, a guy who doesn't get mentioned much. His name is Wigley, and he is part of the triumvirate along with Michael Mann and Phil Jones at the East Anglia University that are running this hoax.
RUSH: I found it. It is from the American Thinker via NewsBusters.org, Noel Sheppard on November 25th: "ClimateGate Smoking Gun Found, American Thinker Does Media's Job." The guy, Marc Sheppard at the American Thinker, examined the computer program's source code available in what was hacked from the Climate Research Unit and discovered that the scandal is everything that the global warming-obsessed media fear. It's highly technical and I'm not even going to attempt to read it, but the conclusion by Marc Sheppard is there's now "irrefutable evidence that alarmists have indeed been cooking the data for at least a decade may just be the most important strike in human history." Now, this is the computer source code for computer modeling and so forth, and it just illustrates how bogus all of this is.
Marc Sheppard is a software designer, a consultant and a business owner who discovered this in his spare time. Where are America's leading science periodicals or key journalists in this debate? Where are America's science editors on this? They are nowhere to be found. In the past two years, we have seen the press ignore important facts about a presidential candidate in order to get him elected. We have seen the press ignore or gloss over important facts about a president's appointees to get them approved by Congress. We have seen the press ignore important facts about the president's czars, and we have seen the press ignore important facts about a major community organizing group, ACORN. Now the press is ignoring the uncovering of the largest hoax in the history of science. This is even bigger than the cold fusion hoax. This is bigger than the flat earthers.
Oh, by the way, folks, you might want to know that the decidedly not green economies of China and India never had a recession to speak of, and they're now growing like gangbusters. Indian Economy Grows 7.9%, Shatters Forecasts -- India reported its best growth figures in 18 months today as government spending and record low interest rates helped Asia's third largest economy rebound from a globule financial crisis." They never had a recession. They had a little slowdown. The countries that are not beating themselves up, the countries that are doing everything they can to grow are indeed growing. We all know how to do it. The fact that it's not happening here is personal.
