Letter: Global warming is one big lie

Patrick Moore, former member of Greenpeace, told lawmakers there is no evidence man is contributing to climate change and said he left the group when it became more interested in politics than the environment.

"There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the earth's atmosphere over the past 100 years," he said.

Skeptics of manmade climate change say there is no evidence the Earth is warming. A UN report on the scientific data behind global warming released in September indicated that global surface temperatures have not increased for the past 15 years, but scientists who believe climate change due to man is occurring say it has merely paused because of several factors and will soon resume.

"After 15 years in the top committee I had to leave as Greenpeace took a sharp turn to the political left and began to adopt policies that I could not accept from my scientific perspective," he said. "Climate change was not an issue when I abandoned Greenpeace, but it certainly is now."

Patrick Moore, a Canadian ecologist and business consultant who was a member of Greenpeace from 1971-1986, told members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee that environmental groups like the one he helped establish use faulty computer models and scare tactics in promoting claims that man-made gasses are heating up the planet.

In the 2014 State of the Union address, Barack Hussein Obama stated to congress and the American people "climate change is a fact! We have to act with more urgency because a changing climate is already harming western communities struggling with drought and coastal cities dealing with floods."

If at any point a witness in a courtroom is shown to commit perjury then the entire testimony of that witness is discredited on the grounds of obstruction of justice and false representation of the facts.

How many lies are the American people going to listen to before the testimony of the liberal ideology is called what it is (one big lie!)?
