(by Rhoda Wilson | The Exposé) – In 2013, Forbes published an eye-opening article authored by Larry Bell who used quotes from “Climate Alarmists” to reveal the truth about the climate change agenda.
Bell began with a quote from then President Barak Obama who had put salvation from dreaded climate catastrophes on his action agenda hot list. “Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and powerful storms,” Obama said.
“Just how many of those who stoke the global warming alarm fires have real confidence in that ‘science’. Let’s briefly review just a few candid comments that some of them have offered on this topic. These are but a very small sampling of my favourites,” wrote Larry Bell. “It is way past time to realise that none of this is really about protecting the planet from man-made climate change. It never was.”
Larry Bell is an Endowed Professor of Space Architecture at the University of Houston where he founded the Sasakawa International Centre for Space Architecture (“SICSA”) and the Graduate Program in Space Architecture. He is also an unpaid policy advisor on climate and environmental policy for The Heartland Institute.
What follows are extracts from Bell’s article titled In Their Own Words: Climate Alarmists Debunk Their ‘Science’. And, it could be we are being overly sceptical but, as this is the sort of article that could be targeted in an internet version of “book burning” we have downloaded a copy of this article and attached it below.In-Their-Own-Words_-Climate-Alarmists-Debunk-Their-Science
It might be appropriate to correct a few general misconceptions before getting back to that “overwhelming judgment of science” stuff, Bell began.
Regarding wildfires, for example, their numbers since 1950 have decreased globally by 15%. According to the National Academy of Sciences, they will likely continue to decline until around mid-century.
As for those droughts, a recent study published in the letter of the journal Nature indicates that globally, “…there has been little change in drought over the past 60 years.“
Also, by the way, global hurricane activity, measured in total energy (Accumulated Cyclone Energy), is actually at a low not encountered since the 1970s.

As Bell noted, virtually all of those who Obama claimed “deny” the “overwhelming science” do, in fact, recognise that the climate really does change. After all, “if the climate didn’t change, would we even need a word for it?”
The larger issue, Bell wrote, has to do with just how many of those who stoke the global warming alarm fires have real confidence in that “science”. So, let’s briefly review just a few candid comments that some of them have offered on this topic. These are but a very small sampling of my favourites.
The following two sections are copied, without edit, from Bell’s In Their Own Words: Climate Alarmists Debunk Their ‘Science’. The final section is excerpted from the same.
How Climate Alarmism Advances International Political Agendas
The term “climate” is typically associated with annual worldwide average temperature records measured over at least three decades. Yet global warming observed less than two decades after many scientists had predicted a global cooling crisis prompted the United Nations to organise an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (“IPCC”) and to convene a continuing series of international conferences purportedly aimed at preventing an impending catastrophe. Virtually from the beginning, they had already attributed the “crisis” to human fossil-fuel carbon emissions.
A remark from Maurice Strong, who organised the first U.N. Earth Climate Summit (1992) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil revealed the real goal:
“We may get to the point where the only way of saving the world will be for industrialised civilization to collapse.”
Former U.S. Senator Timothy Wirth (D-CO), then representing the Clinton-Gore administration as U.S undersecretary of state for global issues, addressing the same Rio Climate Summit audience, agreed:
“We have got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.” (Wirth now heads the U.N. Foundation which lobbies for hundreds of billions of US taxpayer dollars to help underdeveloped countries fight climate change.)
Also speaking at the Rio conference, Deputy Assistant of State Richard Benedick, who then headed the policy divisions of the U.S. State Department said:
“A global warming treaty [Kyoto] must be implemented even if there is no scientific evidence to back the [enhanced] greenhouse effect.” Read Full Article >
