Liberal Environmentalist Pans Global Warming

Dr. Denis Rancourt

You know they hypothesis of anthropogenic global warming is in dire trouble when a liberal environmentalist trashes it publicly.

That is just what physicist Dr. Denis Rancourt, a former professor and environmental science researcher at the University of Ottawa, has done.

He’s decided to bail on this nutty theory that doesn’t even pass the smell-test of credibility, and not only that, he’s exposing it for the barrel of fraud that it has always been.

He hasn’t completely come in from the cold and given up on liberalism, but at least he’s no longer willing to drink the Koolaid on anthropogenic global warming.

Watch the video and consider some of the quotes transcripted by Climate Depot:

“It is as much psychological and social phenomenon as anything else”

“Global warming is strictly an imaginary problem of the First World middleclass”

“When I tell environmental activists that global warming is not something to be concerned about, they attack me — they shun me, they do not allow me to have my materials published in their magazines” (Nice “peer review” process, huh–walk the party line or no peer review)

“They look for comfortable lies that they can settle into and alleviate the guilt they feel about being on privileged end of the planet — a kind of survivors guilt.”

We see this sort of guilt a lot in the West, especially in America. We have such incredible affluence compared to the rest of the world, and we have attained it with such incredible ease, that many people without a solid moral and philosophical grounding feel vaguely guilty for having so much. Not being sure they are legitimately entitled to it, they opt for self-flagellating guilt-mongering…while remaining generally unwilling to give up all those modern comforts they feel so guilty about. The process of self-flagellating and America-hatred purges enough of the guilt to allow them to continue enjoying these modern conveniences without the burden of guilt.

On Al Gore’s propaganda film, “An Inconvenient Truth”:

“I felt ill walking out of the theatre. It’s terrible. It does not respect the intelligence of the viewer. The film does not acknowledge people can think for themselves at all”

On the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the chief governmental agency peddling this hoax:

The scientists are “named by governments, they are scientists who accept to serve a political role. Their mission is to write a report” that “is meant to be used by government. Their goal is find a conclusion…it is a political process.”

On the lack of rigor in the scientific community and the peer-pressure process that passes for “peer review”:

“They are all virtually all service intellectuals. They will not truly critique, in a way that could threaten the power interests that keep them in their jobs. The tenure track is just a process to make docile and obedient intellectuals that will then train other intellectuals,” Rancourt said.

When you do find something bad, you quickly learn and are told you better toe the line on this — your career depends on it”

The hoax of anthropogenic global warming is the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on humanity. The science not only doesn’t support it but points in the direction of natural, cyclic climate change.

Let’s not allow mindless obedience to this bunk to destroy our economy and our freedom.

  1. It's time more people learned that not everything called “scientific” really is. In fact, the more loudly something is called that, the more people should be suspicious of it.

    “Science” is a powerfully convincing word. Does anyone really think that no one would abuse that power?

    Note the shunning that Dr. Rancourt receives when trying to tell the truth about AGW. That's the same brick wall other honest scientists run into when their findings happen to conflict with reigning conventional wisdom.

    Remember that you next time you're about to parrot some line about such-and-such being “scientific.” Chances are, you need to look closer and listen for the voices that the loudspeaker is trying to drown out.

  2. Whilst it is possible to see how a relatively new subject that attracted people of certain “mindset” may have gone down a blind alleyway with both eyes shut, it's far harder to see how the “scientific establishment” came to back them so unquestionably.

    Science does not come out of this scandal looking very good. Worse it appears to be far more concerned to “save face” than to ruthlessly pursue the scientific method.

    We'll forget about global warming pretty quick … much like the millennium bug or swine flu. But I don't think the source taste of deceit in the scientific elite will be forgotten so quick!

  3. I invite all you folks to print out your statements of GW denial, seal them in an envelope, open the envelope in ten years time, and post them on the web. My guess is that fewer than one in ten among you will have the courage to do that.
