Dangerous Carbon Pollution: Propaganda from Climatism

by Steve Goreham
Biggovernment.com, October 8, 2010

In an address to Green Mountain College on May 15, Carol Browner, Director of Energy and Climate Change Policy, stated “The sooner the U.S. puts a cap on our dangerous carbon pollution, the sooner we can create a new generation of clean energy jobs here in America…” In July, 2009, President Obama lauded the “Cash for Clunkers” program, stating that the initiative “gives consumers a break, reduces dangerous carbon pollution, and our dependence on foreign oil…” Unfortunately, our President is misinformed about carbon pollution.

The phrase “dangerous carbon pollution” has become standard propaganda from environmental groups. An example is a May, 2010 press release from the World Wildlife Fund that called for “a science-based limit on dangerous carbon pollution that will send a strong signal to the private sector.” Environmentalists have successfully painted a picture of black particle emissions into the atmosphere. This misconception is being used to drive efforts for Cap & Trade legislation, renewable energy, and every sort of restriction on our light bulbs, vehicles, and houses—all in the misguided attempt to stop climate change.

“Climatism!”: A Must-Read Book on Climate Alarmism

By Roger Helmer, July 30, 2010

I’ve recently reviewed a number of excellent books on aspects of the climate debate.  But I want to tell you about the book I’ve just read: “Climatism”.

I was at the Heartland Climate Conference in Chicago in May, when I had the pleasure of meeting Steve Goreham, the author of “Climatism!”.  Steve holds an MS from the University of Illinois, and an MBA from the University of Chicago.  He has just been appointed Executive Director of the Climate Science Coalition of America (www.climatescienceamerica.org).   A few years ago he became interested in the climate debate, and has made an extended study both of the science, and of Climatsm as a social, political and economic phenomenon.  The result of his work is this book, one of the most comprehensive yet accessible studies I have seen.  While he doesn’t spare the scientific rigour, he writes in a wonderfully accessible way, and if you have any interest in the subject you’ll find it difficult to put down.
