6. Environmentalist Propaganda Is Rife with Fraud
The importance of the advertising agency and NGOs involved in the scandalous Tsunami ad clearly shows to what degree environmental manipulation is employed. This manipulation is not only the work of uninformed amateurs – as its leaders would have us believe – but is part and parcel of the tactics of the “green revolution.” In the face of this “psychological terrorist propaganda,” renowned scientists in good faith sometimes find it difficult to dispel the hype and lies of environmentalist catastrophists. Their real-world data, facts and logical arguments have to clash head-on with unscrupulous advertising gimmicks that manipulate people’s collective fears, good faith, and gullibility.
Now, are these conclusions valid? Can they be rationally made and sustained on the basis of a single piece of advertising? Even if this ad is demagogic and lacking scientific seriousness, are we not exaggerating and making a big generalization based on such a small sample? No. In fact, such advertisements, and even much larger ones are published all the time with frightening insistence and given overwhelming media coverage. Precisely the opposite happens with the conclusions of qualified scientists when their research results invalidate such ads: those results are usually doomed to oblivion and the “trash bin”.
In fact, there is a growing chorus of so-called called “realistic” or “skeptic” scientists. They denounce the bad faith, fraud and inconsistency in “studies” by activist Al Gore and the IPCC itself. They say they cannot understand how Al Gore and IPCC could have received the Nobel Peace Prize with their campaign of climate catastrophism which they have proven to be unscientific, ideological, and even fraudulent.
A flurry of studies, analyses, real-world data and denunciations of faulty mathematical models are placing the IPCC and Al Gore in a delicate situation. More than 700 scientists from around the world have challenged claims in the IPCC report prepared by 52 scientists. The stand taken by the 700 scientists (in 2010 they numbered over one thousand) is found in the 255-page U.S. Senate Minority Report published in 2009 under the auspices of the Committee for the U.S. Senate Environmental and Public Works. Once again the media, always so keen to publish any bit of sensational news, remained silent.
7. In Early São Paulo, Catastrophes Happened All the Same Without Global Warming
In 2009, the city of São Paulo experienced heavy rains, high winds and storms that caused massive flooding, damage, and painful loss of life. The media immediately brought up “climate change” and “global warming” insisting that extreme weather events result from human activity and that the events in São Paulo were proof of these phenomena. Taking another step in its peculiar “logic,” the media emphasized the need for drastic changes in the activities of modern societies to guard against extreme weather conditions, a nod to the UN climate meeting in Copenhagen. So the rains and floods were subtly turned into “incontrovertible evidence” of the environmentalist theses and of the need to accept these groups’ agenda. All of it in a seemingly “scientific” packaging.
The impact of the images and news showing disruption, damage and commotion because of the tragic loss of life will likely make people more willing to accept environmental correlations and explanations as self-evident without proper critical analysis or even without proof. For, as we have seen, there is no serious evidence and unequivocal scientific basis to claim that extreme weather events are caused by human activity.
The first step to make the case that phenomena such as the heavy rains and floods in São Paulo really are “extreme weather events” and result from climate change would be to examine whether analogous facts have occurred in the past. Because if they happened earlier, their cause cannot be attributed to current climatic events. It is precisely on this point that we offer the reader a curious and revealing account from a very distant past. It was reproduced by the newspaper O Estado de São Paulo on September 19, 2009 by journalist Sonia Racy in her column “Direto da Fonte” [Straight from the Source] titled “Direto de 1560” [Straight from 1560]:
“Let São Paulo’s inhabitants take comfort from the fact that damage from rain, floods and roofless houses already hindered life on the Piratininga Plateau four and a half centuries ago when the village of São Paulo was just starting.
“Do you know who said so? – The most illustrious figure of the place at that time, Saint Joseph of Anchieta. In 1560, in a letter to the General of the Jesuits in Rome, Diego Laines, he describes one of those days when ‘thunder claps make houses shake, trees fall, and cause general disturbance.’
“There were not 4 million cars, turned off traffic lights or debris clogging the sewers. But if there were any headlines they would have been just like the ones today.
“This precious letter, stored in the archive of the Jesuits in Rome was sent to São Paulo in 2004 for an exhibit of the Commercial Association to commemorate the 450th anniversary of the city. It was found by then São Paulo Mayor José Serra’s secretary Guilherme Affif as he rummaged through copies of the material.
“ ‘Not too many days ago’, Anchieta chronicles, ‘the day suddenly began to darken and the sky to cloud up. The wind shook houses, snatched roofs, and plucked up very large trees by the roots in such a way that the paths in the woods were all covered up.
“‘It could happen anytime because abundant and frequent rains fall in the spring, which starts here in September, and during the summer, starting in December. Then rivers overflow and there is major flooding in the fields.
“‘And the more remarkable is that the Indians, entertained with their singing and drinking did not stop dancing or drinking as if everything were perfectly still.’”
Were the phenomena described by Father Anchieta, so similar to the 2009 storms a result of CO2 emissions, global warming, deforestation, extinction of species? As one can easily see there is nothing unusual about the current the rains and flooding, nor do they serve as “proof” of the much-promoted ballyhooed environmental catastrophes. We should pay keen attention on the “evidence “and “conclusions “offered to (or rather imposed on) us as undisputed…

8. Who Is to Profit from Environmental Doomsaying?
One question remains: What makes environmentalism tick? Is it really an innocent and selfless desire to preserve the planet and the environment? Or rather, behind this facade is there a manipulation to sway people’s consciences into accepting changes in their lifestyles presented as a “compelling need” for the “planet’s survival”? Just what are these “compelling changes”?
A careful analysis of the phenomenon leads us to conclude that they aim to achieve a fundamental change in the existing order of things (now geared to productivity and development) towards a primitive and impoverished society. If their goals were innocent and upright, why would environmentalists need to distort the data so grotesquely?
Let us keep in mind that revolutions were presented throughout history as defenders of people and freedom but ended up by creating killing machines. Nazism and Communism are just the latest examples of that. Such revolutions created “civilizations” that vilified the Natural Law, violated human nature in its most elemental aspects, and created a state of affairs based on neo-pagan “modern” customs methods on the pretext of liberating people from the “shackles” of Christianity.
In fact, the greatest danger is not weather phenomena but their manipulation by certain currents for obscure ends. We live in the era of propaganda, when despotic and murderous political regimes have supported themselves through powerful manipulation. This is why we must be careful to avoid foolishly and unsuspectingly parroting certain falsehoods as “evidence,” thus becoming “useful idiots” at the service of the vested interests of systematic fraudsters.
