As global warming hoax collapses, pushers of counterfeit science turn to fear extremism to try to scare people into compliance

by J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) On any given day, you can enter the terms "global warming" and "climate change" into a mainstream search engine and find a half-dozen or more stories on the subjects, all highlighting another piece of "evidence" that modern man's SUVs, factories and commercial airliners are destroying the planet.

Every now and then, however, there will be a "story" that comes with some dire warning, written by some fearmonger who, like those before him or her, is using the issue of "climate change" like a hammer to force or shame governments (especially the U.S. government under the tutelage of Barack Hussein Obama) into adopting massive new climate change regulations that serve primarily to curb economic growth and activity while limiting freedom and liberty.

The latest example comes from USA Today, whose editorial board has a long history of pushing global warming/climate change/climate alteration. Citing a recently released study, the paper reported that some polar ice will melt so substantially at some point in the future that the oceans will swallow up major coastal cities around the world.

The title of the study itself is dire: "Combustion of available fossil fuel resources sufficient to eliminate the Antarctic Ice Sheet." You could almost sense that there should have been an exclamation point at the end.

The crux of the researchers' findings is this: if the world keeps burning fossils, the entire Antarctic will melt and flood the globe.

The paper noted:

If the currently attainable coal, natural gas and oil deposits are burned, the entire ice sheet covering Antarctica will melt into warming oceans, authors of the Sciences Advances study claimed.

The new projections say the first 100 feet of sea level rise would happen over the next 1,000 years, more than an inch a year, said Ken Caldeira, one of the study's authors and a professor at the Carnegie Institution for Science.

"In the 'burn it all, melt it all' scenario, the environmental consequences are unacceptable," Caldeira said. "Sooner rather than later the energy system is going to have to be rebuilt so it doesn't dump carbon dioxide into the air."

His "study" predicted that a 200-foot rise in sea levels would wipe out low-lying coastal regions around the world. Picture, he said, New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina or the drowning of megaplexes such as Los Angeles, New York City and almost all of Florida.

"Most projections this century are two to three feet of sea level rise, which we can deal with," Caldeira said. "But 100 feet basically means abandoning London, Rome, Paris, Tokyo and New York."

Oh, no! We have to act!

History of incorrect dire predictions

Or do we? We've all heard this nonsense before. Since the first Earth Day in 1970, writes Ronald Bailey in the May 2000 issue of Reason magazine, these wild apocalyptic predictions have been made:

More recently, the master of all global warming alarmists is former Vice President and current multimillionaire Al Gore, who won a Nobel Peace Prize for a fraudulent climate change film after predicting in 2009 that by 2014, the North Pole would be completely ice-free thanks to the burning of fossil fuels.

There are more examples, of course, but you get the idea. What is worse is that governments, including our own, are making public policy based on these bogus assertions – rules that hurt employers, workers and entire industries.
