Spøk og alvor om klima: Al-Gore-effekten og virkeligheten

I dag skal vi kort så på noen få ting som henger intimt sammen: den såkalte Al-Gore-effekten, hva som er det egentlige poeng bak politikernes global-oppvarming-hysteri, og hva som virkelig har skjedd med temperaturen de siste årene.

Først Al-Gore-effekten, som en ordbok definerer slik: Al-Gore-effekten er ”The phenomenon that leads to unseasonably cold temperatures, driving rain, hail, or snow whenever Al Gore visits an area to discuss global warming.

- Australia, November 2006: Al Gore is visiting two weeks before summer begins. The Gore Effect strikes: "Ski resort operators gazed at the snow in amazement. Parents took children out of school and headed for the mountains. Cricketers scurried amid bullets of hail as Melburnians traded lunchtime tales of the incredible cold." (The Age)

- New York, March 2004: "Gore chose January 15, 2004, one of the coldest days in New York City's history, to rail against the Bush administration and global warming skeptics... Global warming, Gore told a startled audience, is causing record cold temperatures."

Et annet sted er tilsvarende fenomener beskrevet slik:

“Al Gore does it again: preaches warming - brings cold, snow.
This has happened to Gore rather a lot, curiously enough. See, for instance, what happened when he gave a major speech on global warming in Boston in 2004:

Gore will make the warming case on a day forecasters are predicting the coldest temps in Boston since 1957, with wind chills in parts of New England plunging to 100 degrees below zero!

Same story when Gore went to New York:

With a near-record low temperature and single-digit wind chill in New York City, former Vice President Al Gore took to the podium in Manhattan’s Beacon Theater today to blasted President Bush for contributing to “global warming.”

And now Gore flies in from a stay in New Zealand, whose farmers must hope he’s taken his weather with him

An unusually cold October has left Southland dairy farmers struggling and with pasture growth rates about three weeks later than usual.
Mind you, this hasn’t just happened to Gore, as local global warming disciples found out just a couple of weeks ago:

Thousands of people have marched through central Sydney, ignoring wet and windy weather to protest against global warming….”.
Hva er så den bakenforliggende årsak til makthavernes global-oppvarming-hysteri. En engelsk avis avslører følgende:

“Indeed, for nearly 50-years the U.N. has formulated its own unique brand of “social justice” under the guise of “saving the planet” by demonizing one byproduct of Western economic growth or another. Carbon Dioxide is, of course, merely the devil’s derivative du jour.
Now, a high-ranking member of the U.N’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has admitted that climate policy has little to do with environmental protection.

On Sunday, Ottmar Edenhofer, a German economist and IPCC Co-chair of Working Group III on Mitigation of Climate Change, told the Neue Zürcher Zeitung (translated) that “climate policy is redistributing the world's wealth” and that “it's a big mistake to discuss climate policy separately from the major themes of globalization.

Edenhofer went on to explain that in Cancun, the redistribution of not only wealth but also natural resources will be negotiated, adding that:
The climate summit in Cancun at the end of the month is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War.

Så poenget er omfordeling. Skatter og avgifter i de rike land – inkluder klimaavgiftet etc. - som i uforholdsmessig stor grad rammer folk flest, skal brukes til å bygge opp byråkratier, dvs. nye herskerklasser, i de fattige landene. En klok og vittig person sa en gang at ”u-hjelp er å ta penger fra de fattige i de rike landene og gi dem til de rike i de fattige landene”. Dette er en i hovedsak korrekt beskrivelse av alle typer statlige overføringer. Poenget med global-oppvarming-hysteriet er altså å øke politikeres og byråkraters makt over hele verden.

Men hva skjer med klimaet? Skjer det en oppvarming? Vi siterer fra en engelsk avis:

”Last week, halfway through yet another giant, 15,000delegate UN climate jamboree, being held this time in the tropical splendour of Cancun in Mexico, the Met Office was at it again.

Never mind that Britain, just as it was last winter and the winter before, was deep in the grip of a cold snap, which has seen some temperatures plummet to minus 20C, and that here 2010 has been the coolest year since 1996.

Globally, it insisted, 2010 was still on course to be the warmest or second warmest year since current records began.

But buried amid the details of those two Met Office statements 12 months apart lies a remarkable climbdown that has huge implications - not just for the Met Office, but for debate over climate change as a whole.

Read carefully with other official data, they conceal a truth that for some, to paraphrase former US VicePresident Al Gore, is really inconvenient: for the past 15 years, global warming has stopped … “

Så hvis man leser rapporten nøye så finner man at ”for the past 15 years, global warming has stopped … “

Interessant. I de siste 15 år har altså oppvarmingen stanset opp. Og dette er noe flere burde merke seg.
