Environmentalist PR Firms In Green Propaganda Offensive
The corporate CEO's and investors profiting from global
PR firms headed up by corporate investors, CEO's and Directors
of huge multinational companies are aggressively pushing global
warming propaganda as they have come to realize that the green
agenda is forging the next big commodities market.
Nowhere is this more evident than on Yahoo.com where
pages and pages of articles devoid of any actual scientific reality
have been collated into one giant
green offshoot website.
Any visitor to Yahoo.com will today notice that
the tech giant has "gone green" in recognition of Earth
Day, a long running observance intended to inspire environmental
However, a closer look at the information provided
on the website along with the people pushing it signals that the
move represents nothing more than a huge profit making PR exercise.
Upon attempting to access my Yahoo email I was intrigued
by the green Yahoo logo. Little did I know that when clicking
on it I would be instantly bombarded with reactionary propaganda
in it's crudest form.
(Article continues below)
Take Yahoo's "Global
Warming Myths and Facts" page for example.
The agenda here is simple, they tell you what the FACTS are about
global warming and remind you that any scurrilous rumours you
may have heard to the contrary are MYTHS. The problem is, there
is no actual evidence, just statements:
Fact: There is no debate among scientists about the basic
facts of global warming.
That's strange, because last time I checked there was a raging
debate with vast
amounts of scientists questioning the UN backed IPCC
"consensus" of just a handful of scientists and a boatload
Fact: Any beneficial effects [of increased CO2 levels]
will be far outweighed by damage and disruption.
And this is according to who? Some
scientists , including the man dubbed "the
father of the greenhouse effect" have postulated
that the temperature increases predicted by climate models will
benefit the planet, without causing any significant damage. What
makes their projections MYTHS?
Fact: The global warming we are experiencing is not natural.
People are causing it.
It is widely understood that CO2 constitutes a mere 0.038 percent
of the atmosphere. Human CO2 production accounts for a mere 3
percent of the total CO2. The remaining 97 percent is produced
naturally. Volcanic eruptions, CO2 releases from the oceans and
even flatulence from cows cause more CO2 emissions than humans.
data from all four major global temperature tracking outlets
shows that the Earth is no longer getting warmer and that we are
now actually in a post-warming period of global cooling.
Fact: Putting the word "fact" in front of a sentence
does not make it an actual fact.
The Yahoo green onslaught is jam packed with paragraphs of such
unsubstantiated claims. Highlights include:
"The only debate in the science community about global
warming is about how much and how fast warming will continue."
"a mandatory cap on emissions could spur technological
innovation that could create jobs and wealth. "
"The best way to lower temperature and thus reduce water
vapor levels is to reduce CO2 emissions."
The only information that even mentions alternative scientific
explanations for global warming trends serves to shoot them all
down as dissent by focusing on lesser
known fringe theories. The article linked here was
written by Lime.com, a website that makes a living from peddling
all manner of green accessories. Very scientific and absolutely
no bias there then.
Why don't these self appointed experts try refuting the now widely
accepted evidence that there has been no
warming since 1998?
Why don't they write about the fact that carbon emissions have
never driven climate change because as
ice core samples clearly show, carbon dioxide is
a consequence of temperature increase and not a cause of it, sometimes
lagging behind by as much as 800 years?
Why don't they address the fact that during the most recent period
of warming on Earth, there has been warming throughout
the solar system due to increased sun activity?
Instead of raging
about temperature rises in the Arctic, why don't
they provide an opposing viewpoint to counter the scientific evidence
that proves Antarctica
has actually cooled since 1979?
Of course, they wouldn't dare draw attention to the more prominent
dissenting views on the so called global warming "consensus".
Another featured article, Can
Mutant Plants End Climate Change? suggests that
some scientists believe genetically altering plants to take in
more CO2 is a possible solution to the certain death we all face.
Perhaps the vast swathes of cash that Monsanto, Aventis and the
other biotechnology companies have pumped
into "friendly" scientific studies is paying
off for them.
The enviro takeover of Yahoo also calls
for handy hints on how to shoot down "climate
denialists," and "poor fools whose heads are in the
A cursory check into the sponsors of and contributors to a large
chunk of the Yahoo pages, the Environmental
Defense Fund, reveals that its board of trustees
is infested with corporate investors, CEO's and big business representatives.
- Chairman N
J Nicholas Jr, is a renowned investor, director
of Boston Scientific Corporation and Xerox Corporation, as well
as having held many positions with Time Warner.
- Vice Chair Robert W. Wilson, another Wall Street investor,
made his fortune in hedge funds.
- Kirsten J. Feldman is an Advisory Director for Morgan Stanley.
- Robert E. Grady is a Managing Director of The Carlyle Group.
- John H. T. Wilson is an Advisory Director for Morgan Stanley
- Roger Enrico is a former Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo, Inc.
- E. John Rosenwald, Jr. was the Vice Chairman of Bear, Stearns
& Co. Inc. (oh dear).
Another Contributor to the Yahoo green binge is the Natural Resources
Defense Council, and it's a similar story with their board
We have previously reported on warnings about the big money behind
global warming propaganda.
For example, last month Howard C. Hayden, emeritus professor
of physics from the University of Connecticut, was prompted
to speak out after a visit to New York where he learned
that scaremongering billboards about the long-term effects of
global warming were being purchased at a cost of $700,000 a month.
We have also carried reports that detail how many of the world's
and most powerful banks are pushing hard for the
introduction of a 'no caps' world trading market for carbon.
So called "Carbon traders" have predicted that emissions
permits could become the world’s largest commodities market.
Stanley announced last October that it “plans
to invest in approximately $3 billion of carbon/emission credits,
projects and other initiatives related to greenhouse gas emissions
over the next five years.”
Another big winner may be Wall Street powerhouse
Goldman Sachs, part owner of the European Climate Exchange and
the Chicago Climate Exchange – the exclusive marketplaces
for trading carbon credits.
Big businesses are now buying
up smaller firms which saw the coming boom in the
green movement years ago.
As the London
Guardian's Nick Davies has pointed out, there is
a very inconvenient truth about the carbon offset industry, greenhouse
gas credits do little or nothing to combat any actual global warming.
We are witnessing the emergence of carbon
cartels and the rise of a phantom industry.
Warming disciples routinely accuse skeptics of kowtowing to energy
giants and mega global corporations, yet the very delusion they
labour under, that humans are destroying the earth, is being pushed
by those they believe they are fighting against. The globalists
love global warming.
This aggressive profit making propaganda offensive is a perfect
example of how the environmental movement has been completely
hijacked by big business and corporate investors who know when
a good cash cow is ripe for milking.
Fearmongering about an imminent climate doomsday hogs news coverage
and important environmental issues like GM food, mad scientist
chimera cloning, deforestation, toxic waste dumping, and the usurpation
and abuse of corporations like Monsanto are flying under the radar.
Just as globalist politicians, power brokers and big government
the environment movement to do what they do - secure
greater draconian control measures on society and centralize power
- big business has co-opted it to do what it does - make huge
sums of money at the expense of the little man.
