Australia just fired over 100 climate scientists. Learn the REAL reason.

Tim BallRebel Columnist

Global warming was the topic of a hearing before both houses of Congress back in March 2007.

It was at that hearing that star witness former Vice President and Academy Award winner Al Gore stated:

“The science on global warming is settled.” “The debate in the scientific community is over.”

Now it's 2016, and Scientific American reports:

“Australia Cuts 110 Climate Scientist Jobs: Because the science is settled there is no need for more basic research, the government says."

This is a clever and humorous ploy but reflects a serious political failure: the inability to control bureaucrats, policy, and funding.

What is really happening is that the Australian government is eliminating climate scientists working at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO).

And to do that, they are using a very reasonable argument, promoted by proponents of man-made global warming, to do what they haven’t the political nerve to do:

Take control of their out of control scientific bureaucracy.

Maurice Strong knew politicians would be hesitant to oppose a scientific bureaucracy, which is why he set up the entire anthropogenic global warming (AGW) scam through the bureaucracies of the UN World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the bureaucrats in the weather offices of individual member nations.

Canada was deeply involved from the beginning, when Gordon McBean, Assistant Deputy Minister of Environment Canada (EC), chaired the founding meeting of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in Villach, Austria in 1985.

Sure enough, Canadian politicians lost control from the start. They couldn't and wouldn’t challenge the science and thereby couldn’t challenge the diversion of funds Environment Canada claimed it required to pursue their goal.

According to the Auditor General, Environment Canada spent $6.8 billion from 1997 to 2005 on climate change.

Contrary to funding policy, almost all went to people and programs supporting the government position.

Diversion of funding to climate change left other legislated requirements unfunded. It became so bad that public complaints about poor service triggered an internal investigation by The Impact Group. They hired Price Waterhouse, who carried out public hearings. I attended the Vancouver meeting and received a copy of the report.

In a review of that Impact Group Report, Ken Green wrote:

Elements of an “Action Plan for Climate Science Research at Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC)” (obtained through an Access to Information request) indicate that Canada’s climate change science program is being driven by a predetermined political agenda with a clear disregard of scientific needs.

Stephen Harper tried to stop EC by quietly cutting funding. By doing so, he paid a high political price. It didn’t matter that EC’s self-generated report acknowledged their work on global warming was political.

It didn’t matter that contrary to government policy all climate research funding came from EC.

It didn’t matter that every forecast EC made for three, six and 12 months or longer are completely wrong.

It didn’t matter that every IPCC forecast made was wrong and the Canadian computer model contribution was the worst of an ensemble of models:

Justin Trudeau is now replacing the funding that Harper cut. This is in addition to the $4.1 billion he committed to the Climate Green Fund that was given impetus through the COP21 Climate Conference in Paris.

The role and power of bureaucracies play a fundamental role in the shift to socialism and total government control

Politicians of all persuasions, but especially those who should oppose the trend, are so busy trying to stay in office that they will not do what is necessary to recover control.

A measure of the problem is provided by the few that try surreptitiously, like Harper, to reduce bureaucratic control.

It is also underscored by the resort to trickery, such as the Australian ploy that "the science is settled," so no more research is required.

As Richard Harris cynically observed:

“Probably the most distinctive characteristic of the successful politician is selective cowardice.”

What junior and Enviro Canada scientists need:
Is a tour of some greenhouses where C02 is injected 3-4 times more than (400 ppm ambient), to 1200-1600 ppm to make plants grow healthier, faster and with less water, and where people work all day for years in that environment with no ill effects.
Or;
A tour of our Royal Canadian Navy fleet of submarines where they try to keep the C02 below 8,000 ppm for our sub-mariners who can spend many days submersed in such confined spaces and this meets the standards.

We have to keep such things posted and re-posted to keep the word out. Maybe the bureaucrats will find a way to tax us on the air we breathe in. In the meantime they found a way to tax us on what we breathe out.

Using science to prove a political ideology… hummmm

Congratulations Dr. Ball. Thanks for the great work.
Maybe Canada will one day wake up and fire a bunch of climate “scientists” also.

Congratulations Dr.Ball on winning the law suit by M. Mann. Vindication must be very welcome and Mann being labeled a climate criminal sweet revenge! In regards to PM Harper, I have long felt even though a very good or even great PM, he was a terrible communicator in that he did not effectively explain his reservations and opposition to CC. Trusting the media – who he had a significant dislike for – to carry his almost silent message was foolish IMO! He should have bypassed the media and spoken directly to the people and explain his real position on CC instead of leaving his enemies – political and media – frame him and the govt in as negative light as they could. It might have won the last election. Apparently Harper in 2002 wrote a letter to the Alliance Party of Canada that the AGW was a hoax and a socialist conspiracy – too bad he didn’t carry that message as PM as it could have saved the Canadian taxpayer $Billions not to mention Justin Trudeau and the Libranos in govt. = http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/harper-s-letter-dismisses-kyoto-as-socialist-scheme-1.693166

with internet, you can buy up a bunch of shell companies with different logos and trademarks, pump your message out here and say like Hillary Rodham Clinton , “look , everybody’s doing it!”
but in reality, it’s just you.

the ‘hype’ always changes … liberals can’t make up their mind on the greatest threat to humanity. it’s fluid like their gender.
the only difference now is that the spin doctors get paid more and we have internet.

Tim Ball thank you again! You are the answer to the question do’s tree falling in the forest make a sound if no ones around to hear? You sir are that tree and yes we hear you. These folks that derive income and mass profit this great green lie will be exposed and it’s already happening.

The thing about all those ‘climate scientists’ that were thrown under the bus by the ‘scientific bureaucracy’ of the Australian government in order to ensure us all that ‘the science is settled’, is, they are now not beholden to any job, tenure or other leveragable asset and can now speak the truth about the man made global warming scam – depending on their individual integrity…
The problem is still all the indoctrinated useful idiots that refuse to even look at all the evidence showing the ‘hoax’, is not merely an environazi scam, but a ‘take your rights, your money, your land’ scam!
commented 2016-02-14 13:16:03 -0500
Indeed, why do you need scientists to prop up fairy tale, whereby “every IPCC forecast made was wrong and the Canadian computer model contribution was the worst of an ensemble of models”.
With respect to Stephen Harper paying “a high political price” for trying “to stop EC by quietly cutting funding”, this gave rise to the many leftist campaigns accusing Harper of “muzzling” the government scientists.
With respect to, “Politicians of all persuasions, but especially those who should oppose the trend, are so busy trying to stay in office that they will not do what is necessary to recover control”, they unfortunately have (particularly so-called ‘conservatives’, like the Ontario PCs and Alberta’s Wildrose Party) surrendered to political correctness. Having thus been neutered, how do they stand up to the insanity?

If something is settled, it is not science but dogma. If debate is shut down, it is not science but dogma.

Even with the potential discovery of gravity waves, physicists are not saying the science of Einstein’s Universal Theory is settled. They are saying more data is required and that the current data demonstrates that an aspect of theory is validated not settled. The theory will still be challenged and debated for another 100 years.

Moral of the story and repeating myself, environmentalist climate science is not science but political socialist dogma.

They just fired them? Shot them would have been better, wouldn’t it? The only good climate scientists are those like Tim Ball who are level headed and not “sold their soul” to the Global Warming god.

Thank you Tim Ball for being a voice of reason in the ocean of hypocrite climate scientists who follow along just to get a piece of the multi-billion dollar pie that is now called the Anthropogenic Climate Change scam.

Climate scientists unemployed because they put themselves out of work? Nice.

That’ll teach them to settle the science on anything.

In his Farewell Address,Dwight D. Eisenhower, January 17, 1961, warned of two threats. One is the Military Industrial Complex (and I would suggest he may also have warned of the Surveillance Industrial Complex). The second warning was about a the “scientific-technological elite” and government contracts. Perhaps he wanted to ease his conscience over the bureaucracy he was well familiar with:

" Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers. The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present — and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite. "

The whole speech is worth reading/listening to:

THE SCIENCE ON GLOBAL WARMING IS SETTLED” That means the bridge is built, the dam is completed, then that means we can send the climate science packing. Just like all project it comes to an end and you stop paying for it. no NO the lieberals keep taking our money and wasting it. They have had a good run with climate change global warming global chilling etc. etc. 6.4 billion dollars not bad, we could send a man to the moon for less or we can use the money to pay down our national debt.

A clever spin in an attempt to refute that AGW is not proven and we are running out of money for nonsense. If there was GW,these scientists would be needed to manage it.

So even though it is a Fraud this manipulated fraud Science is being forced on Canadians, Australians and the world?
How are we going to take these fraudsters’ to task and get this lie settled legally and justly?
