Exxon knew of climate change in 1981 funded deniers for 27 more years

I quote from this article:

ExxonMobil, the world’s biggest oil company, knew as early as 1981 of climate change – seven years before it became a public issue, according to a newly discovered email from one of the firm’s own scientists. Despite this the firm spent millions over the next 27 years to promote climate denial.

The email from Exxon’s in-house climate expert provides evidence the company was aware of the connection between fossil fuels and climate change, and the potential for carbon-cutting regulations that could hurt its bottom line, over a generation ago – factoring that knowledge into its decision about an enormous gas field in south-east Asia. The field, off the coast of Indonesia, would have been the single largest source of global warming pollution at the time.

“Exxon first got interested in climate change in 1981 because it was seeking to develop the Natuna gas field off Indonesia,” Lenny Bernstein, a 30-year industry veteran and Exxon’s former in-house climate expert, wrote in the email. “This is an immense reserve of natural gas, but it is 70% CO2,” or carbon dioxide, the main driver of climate change.

However, Exxon’s public position was marked by continued refusal to acknowledge the dangers of climate change, even in response to appeals from the Rockefellers, its founding family, and its continued financial support for climate denial. Over the years, Exxon spent more than $30m on think tanks and researchers that promoted climate denial, according to Greenpeace.

End of quote.

It is this kind of so-called evidence that the believers in anthropogenic global warming froth at the mouth about with a great sense of victory. Game over.

“See, we’ve been saying for years that it’s these big global sources of pollution that have been promoting the global warming denial. Therefore it has to be true.”

Or so the logic goes.

There are 3 issues here that I see:

  1. Of course the big sources of pollution want to deny it. Their business is driven by being polluters.
  2. Those who run our world have long funded both sides of every significant argument. It lets them control the debate and fashion the nature of the opposition.
  3. There is simply NO correlation between CO2 levels and global warming since man began to contribute to CO2 levels. See the following graph.

The historical data in this graph is Vladivostok ice core data from Antarctica, with more recent data added.

This shows you that there was a historical correlation between temperature and CO2, but this has clearly broken badly since humanity began to generate CO2.

We are also told that the historical data says CO2 is causal. Actually, closer examination shows us that the CO2 rise LAGS temperature by about 800 years, thought to be because there is CO2 release form the oceans as they warm, which takes a lot longer than warming the atmosphere.

You can also see that Antarctica has been a lot warmer in the past than it is now. This is not the only data to show the our planet has been much warmer in the past.

For me, the important thing about the above article is that it is perfect reinforcement for those who believe in anthropogenic global warming; yet another reason to not look below the surface and see how we are being manipulated on this critical subject, for the specific objective of justifying Agenda 21, a subject NEVER mentioned in the mainstream press, yet it is a major, global, UN-driven programme, justified by this lie.

And just to remind you, I am NOT advocating that we should not behave more responsibly regarding our planet. We should. And this is how global warming deniers are discredited by warming supporters as a simple knee-jerk reaction, when the two issues are not connected. But they have been connected in the public’s mind. It’s like saying because you don’t accept the Holocaust myth based upon the undeniable scientific evidence, you are anti-Semitic. Excuse me?

Indeed, had the work of Nikola Tesla not been foreshortened by JP Morgan, we would have no need for the carbon economy or the planet covered with electricity grids we’ve suffered for the last 100 years or so.

Until enough people recognise that most of what we are told is true on almost every subject is in fact a lie and they need to do some real work to find the truth, then things will not change in this current consciousness. I know there are some wonderful, dedicated people who disagree with me, and I support their efforts to prove me wrong.
