I I like your attitude wise thank you that's probably because I am they attack dog in the right. Aim bombastic loud mouth of the south. I know Garcia president. Of insensitivity. University where we specialized. And non politically correct status. Seven minutes after six Israel while you back for the bonus hour here on a wintry Wednesday great to have you on. And as always your input is invited to encourage and welcome angles advantage chalk line number 803471063. Common sense retirement planning text align number 71 threes are seven and my email address is simply bomb. And 1063 WORD outcome. I wanna try and not get through this piece because I think you you have a you need to know Ole. What is behind. The entire global warming scam and scam SE appropriate word that. On me a wintry day like this when we have more than our share of global warming. With several inches of snow scattered done all over the upstate. It's important to understand where this stuff came from because I talk a great deal. About how there is no real science. Behind. The the climate change theories. Am but nobody is going to tell you nobody and lame stream media is going to tell you where this stuff. Originated. How did we get where we are. You may be familiar with the name John Coleman. You as AL longtime weatherman in Nash Chicago. And then was a founder of the weather channel when she subsequently sold. Penn Diaw went to moved to California. Where he was a weatherman for KUS side eight. And in 9 January of 2009 he wrote a piece entitled the amazing story behind the global warming scale. How do we ever get to this point where bad science is driving big government to punish its citizens for a living the go to life than fossil fuels brunt. The story begins more than OSHA knock her for named Roger prevail. He served with a navy in world war two and after the war became the director of the Scripps. Oceanographic. Institute in La Hoya. In San Diego California. Revell obtained major funding from the navy. To do measurements and researcher on the ocean around me Pacific at trolls where the US military was conducting post. Wore a bonnet atomic bomb testing. He greatly expanded the institute's areas of interest and among others hired Hans seuss. They noted chemist from the University of Chicago. So Lewis was very interested in the traces of carbon in the environment from the burning of fossil fuels. Revell co authored a scientific paper wick soonest in 1957. A paper that raised the possibility. That the atmospheric carbon dioxide might be creating a greenhouse effect and causing atmospheric warming. The thrust of the paper was a tweet for funding for more studies. Funding frankly is where rebels mind was most of the time. Next Revell hired a GO chemist named David queuing to devise a way to measure the atmospheric contents of carbon dioxide. In 1958 healing published his first paper showing the increase in CO2 in the atmosphere. And linking it to the burning of fossil fuels. These to research papers became the bedrock of the science of global warming even though they offered no proof. The carbon dioxide was in fact they greenhouse gaps. In addition. They failed to explain how this Trace gas only a tiny fraction of the atmosphere could have any significant impact on temperature. Back in the 1950s when this was going on our cities weren't trapped in a Pall of pollution. Last by the crude internal combustion engines and poorly refined gasoline. Powered cars and trucks in those days. And from the under control emissions from power plants and factories there was a valid and serious concern about the health consequences. Of this pollution. As a result a strong environmental movement was developing to demand action. Government heard that outcry and set new environmental standards. Scientists and engineers came to the rescue. Newly reformulated. Fuels were developed as were new high tech computer controlled. Fuel injection engines and catalytic converters by the mid seventies. Cars were no longer significant polluters. Emitting only some carbon dioxide and water vapor from their tail pipes. New fuel processing and smokestacks robbers were added to industrial and power plants and their emissions were greatly reduced as well. But as an environmental movement had been established. And its funding and very existence dependent on having a continuing crisis. Roger rebels of research at the Scripps institute had tricked a wave of scientific inquiry. So the concept of uncontrollable. Atmospheric warming. From the increase in atmospheric CO2. From the burning of fossil fuels became the cornerstone. The environmental movement. Automobiles and power plants became the prime targets. Revell in keel laying use this new alarm ism to keep their funding growing. Other researchers with the environmental motivations and a hunger for funding so all this developing and climbed aboard as well. The research grants followed an alarming hypotheses but again to show up everywhere. The so called healing curve continues to show a steady rise in CO2 in the atmosphere. During the period since oil and coal were discovered and used by mail. CO2 is increase from the 1958 creating a 315. To 385. Parts per million in 2008. But despite the increase it is still only a Trace gas in the atmosphere. The percentage of the atmosphere than his CO2. Remains tiny about three point eight hundreds of 1%. By volume. And 41 hundredths of 1% by weight. And by the way only a fraction of that is from mankind's use of fossil fuels. The best estimate is an atmospheric CO2 is 75%. Natural and 25%. The result of civilization. Several hypotheses emerge in the seven and seventies and eighties. About how this tiny atmospheric component of CO true might cause significant warming. But they remained unproven. As years have passed the scientists have kept reaching out for evidence of warming and proof of their theories. And the money and environmental claims keep on building up. Back in the 1960s this global warming research came to the attention of a Canadian born UN bureaucrat named Maurice Strong. He was looking for issues he could use to fulfill his dream of one world government. Strong organized a world Earth Day event in Stockholm Sweden in 1970. And from this. Developed a committee of scientists. Environmentalist. And political operatives from the UN to continue a series of meetings. Strong develop the concept that the UN and could demand payments from the advanced nations of the world for the climate damage they were causing from their burning of fossil fuels. To benefit the underdeveloped nations. They sort of CO2 tax that would be the funding for his one world government but. He needed more scientific evidence to support his primary thesis. So strong champion the establishment. Of the United Nations intergovernmental. Panel. On climate change. These so called UN IP CC. This was not a pure climate study scientific organization. As we've been led to believe it was an organization of one world government UN bureaucrats. The environmental activist. And environmental scientist. Who craved UN funding. So they can produce a science they needed to stop the burning of fossil fuels. So what do we go from here and how do we get from Roger Ravell when Maurice Strong to Al Gore. And an inconvenient truth. There's a very direct connection. And I'll tell you went and is when we come right back. Quarter after six era and above they match show on a wintry. Climate change caused Snowe me Wednesday. Welcome back six to. He won here in the money Mac show. Beginning you the Genesis of where the app climate change global warming scam. Came from more than extensive piece written by John Coleman the founder of the weather channel back in 2009 so we know that Roger Ravell from the Scripps institute. Met up with them Maurice Strong UN bureaucrat who was engines and one world government. And so they these guys had their own goals were rebel of course it was funding money and it was were strong as well so we could. I continue. Now with his efforts to. And essentially. Blackmail. Developed nations into paying ray reparations to. Two other nations less wealthy nations as a result of out of climate change. Over the last 25 years this UN. Inter governmental panel on climate change in the IPC Sheikh has been very effective. Hundreds of scientific papers to form major international meetings reams of news stories about climatic. Armageddon. It has made it points to the satisfaction of most governments and even shared in a Nobel peace props. And the same time Maurice Strong is busy at the UN. Things were getting a bit out of hand for the man who is now called the grandfather of global warming Roger Ravell. He'd been very politically active in the late 1950s. And he worked to have the University of California. Located A San Diego campus adjacent to the Scripps institute in all I. He won that major war but lost an important battle afterward when he was passed over in the selection as the first chancellor of the new campus. He left Scripps finally in 1963. Moving to Harvard to establish a center for our population studies. It was there. That rebel inspired one of his students. This student went waiters say. It felt like such a privilege to be able to hear about the read outs from some of those measurements in a group of no more than a dozen undergraduates. Here was this teacher presenting something not years old but fresh out of the lab with profound implications for our future. The student described Ramel is a wonderful. Visionary professor who is one of the first people in the academic community to sound the alarm on global warming. Wanna guessing that Harvard student wants. Right. His name was. Albert gore junior. He's not a doctor rebel as his mentor refer doing frequently. Re lying his experience a real weighing his experiences as a student in his book earth in the balance published in 1992 of southern hills. Roger bell was indeed the grandfather of global warming his work laid the foundation for the United Nations IP CC. Provided the anti fossil fuel ammunition to the environmental movement and send Al Gore. On his road to his books. He is moving used his Nobel Peace Prize an 800 million dollars from the carbon credits business. A global warming frenzy US becoming the cause celeb of the media. After all the media is mostly liberal loves Al Gore loves to warn us of impending disasters and tell us this guy is small laying. The politicians and the environmental install a heated up as well. But the tide was turning with Roger Ravell he was forced out at Harvard at age 65. And returned to California and a semi retirement position at University of California San Diego. There he had time to rethink carbon dioxide and they greenhouse effect. The man who had inspired Al Gore and given the UN the basic resurgent needed to luncheons. Intergovernmental. Panel on Climate Change was now having second thoughts. In 1988. He wrote to cautionary letters to members of congress writing and I quote. My own personal belief. Is that we should wait another ten to twenty years to be really convinced. That being greenhouse effect is going to be important for human beings in both positive and negative way it's. An added we should be careful not to arouse too much alarm until they rage an amount of warming becomes clear. In 1991 reviled rebel. Teamed up with Chauncey star founding director of the electric power research institute and Fred singer. First director of the US weather satellite service to write an article for cosmos magazine. They urged more research. And then scientists and governments not to move too fast. To curb greenhouse CO2 emissions. Because the true impact of carbon dioxide was not at all certain. And curbing the use of fossil fuels could have a huge negative impact on the economy jobs. And our standard of living. Considerable controversy. Still around is a surrounds the authorship of this article. However I've discussed this collaboration with doctor singer. And he assures me that Revell was considerably more certain than he was at the time. That carbon dioxide was not a problem. Did Roger Ravell. Attendees summer on clay that they bohemian grove in northern California in 1990 while working on the article. Did he deliver a lakeside speech there to the assembled movers and shakers from Washington and Wall Street. In which he apologized. For sending the UN IP CC and Al Gore on this wild goose chase about global warming. Did he say that the key scientific conjecture that's a lifetime had turned out to be wrong. They answered these questions is apparently yeah. People who were there have told me about that afternoon but I have not been able to locate a transcript or a recording. People continue to share their memories with me on an informal basis more evidence may be forthcoming. Roger rebel died of heart attack three months after the story in cosmos was printed. Wish he were still alive today he might be able to help stop the scientific silliness and end the global warming scam. He might well stand beside me as a global warming deny aired nonetheless. Today we have the continued claim. That CO2 is the culprit. I'm an uncontrollable. Runaway man made global warming we're told that when we burn fossil fuels where leaving a dastardly carbon footprint. And we're told we must pay Al Gore or the environmentalists. For the simple footprint. Our governments on all levels are considering taxing the use of fossil fuels the EPA was on the verge of naming CO2 as a pollutant actually happened. We're already suffering from this selling us in many ways. Our energy policy has been hobbled by the prohibiting out of new refineries and and drilling for decades. We pay for their shortage that is this has created. Every time we buy gas on top of that the whole issue of corn based ethanol. Cost us millions of tax dollars in subsidies which also has driven up food prices. All of this is a long way from over. Yet I am totally convinced there is no scientific basis for any of it. Global warming. It's a hoax it's bad science it's hijacking public policy it is the greatest scam. In history. We'll put this up on our FaceBook page and you can share in the journal leisure written by John Coleman founder of the weather channel. Six Tony nine here on the Bobby Mack she'll be right back on the other side here on a wintry Wednesday evening. Well this is somewhat disconcerting oppress apparently I'm president trumped by has broken a promise. And a big 120. Said the fake news award should be. Blocked. And they did Nash are they just want to keep by the media hanging on tender hooks and they're desperate to a public got all these awards shows. In on now they all get. Butterflies and nervous stomachs wondering if they're going to win. And I'm sure that's what the N news media's up to now 638 here in the body match or 22 before 7 o'clock. Oh by the way where on the SI think about climate change or just talking about via. The beginning of similar where how that all started and now went to hundreds of millions of dollars and Al Gore's pocket. The. LAPD. Los Angeles police department made a big deal. About going green. When a fleet of electric BMW's. David Goldstein from month CBS and Los Angeles has discovered. Some of those cars are sitting in Maine garage. Now this is part of a million dollar pilot program. Now you're really supposed to get a manicure using the BMW's. We've followed this LAPD command there driving one of the department's fleet of electric BMWs. Two way nails so law. Is it supposed to be usually getting a manicure. These cars are part of a multimillion. Dollar taxpayer funded project to help the LAPD. Gold green. And our investigation of department records found some electric cars are sitting on used. When only a few hundred miles on mom and with hidden cameras we've found others are allegedly being miss you missed. The LAPD. Unveiled its patrol cars of the future today. And a 2016. Well choreographed. News conference. LAPD chief Charlie Beck got Adam and electric BMW. Driven by the mayor of LA mayor and Garcetti. To tout the city's ambitious project. They certainly have the performance potential. Beamer won the contract to provide electric cars from the LAPD. 100 delivered each year for three years to be used right now. For administrative purposes not emergencies. The department is always saying numb. The cost. Ten point two million dollars which includes charging stations. We want Ramirez sponsor after they community. Money well worth it according to LAPD deputy chief barring gay. I'm the only guy us. It's all a part of saving the earth going green quite frankly to try and save money for the community and the taxpayers. Yet in the June 10 million dollars. Does Osama I don't go to the nail salon. But sources say some personnel are reluctant to using electric cars because they can only go 8200. Miles on a single charge. And they mileage logs we obtained seemed to back that up. From people in April 2016. When they project started through August 2017. We found most of the electric cars have only been used for a few thousand miles. A handful. Are sitting in the garage when only a few hundred miles on. Like this one in service since may 27 2016. Would just 400 miles on. That works out to an average use sub six miles a week. Yeah probably three miles to also are. L.s back. Within monthly lease payment of a little more than 418. Box. This one cost taxpayers over fifteen dollars a mile. To use. It just doesn't make any sense. Political watchdog Jack Humphrey bill. Says it seems it department was more interested in the image of using electric cars then the actual implementation. First of all. If they're going to be using ten million bucks and our money are basically you re saying ten million dollars of equipment they ought to have a damn plan. Jack said and I quote. Isn't that just a tremendous waste of money. But Jack there's saving the planet. While some of the vehicles are used infrequently. With hidden cameras. We watched a few LAPD personnel using these expensive electric cars perhaps improper way. We follow someone after leaving the downtown police garage they went to the drive through at EO should know a lot. I'm assuming it's a restaurant. And ride back to the garage. A taxpayer funded electric ride for lunch. On another day someone drove from downtown LA to Loyola marymount university in west LA. Picked up some one who appeared to be a student and went to lunch. And you'll wanna go or no luck and should I picked it. And on this day we watched and Marie sour. Commanding officer of LAPD fiscal operations. She's a money mama right. She used it departments electric BMW and stopped at an elementary school in Long Beach. Which by the way is outside dissent is now a stayed there for almost an hour. Then she parked the car a few blocks away outside this nail salon. Inside was a hidden camera that's the LAPD commander on the laughed getting a manicure. She spent over an hour inside the solemn. She's pointing over her car commander soured gesture toward where the BMW as part as she left the salon with a manicurist. And then made her way back to the city car. David Goldstein CBS tunis. It's there's gonna have a tough time didn't impress production with the future and let him. And she didn't have anything to say. You're getting a manicure or using the LA P. d.s BMW is this is part of a million dollar upon a program isn't supposed to use Beers are getting a manager. I have no comment at this time. We showed assistant chief Villaraigosa the video and ask is that proper use of the BMW. And to which the assistant chief replied well it doesn't appear to be. He deputy chief Steve says they department policy is encouraged to be used for business all the way. And they well I'll look into what we found. Overall he claims the program as a success. And hopes they use an electric arsenal entries. Fifteen bucks a month now. But hey. We're saving the planet for your children and grandchildren. And a ten million bucks. Only sing. And you actually get investment. Well we should arrive to worry about going over on the mileage a lot. Should its. Court every 47 here on the upcoming match show will be right back. And just say headline on this story will send me now Las Vegas betting lines going askew. Tom Brady limited in today's practice. Where they right hand injury. Instead Brady's motion chat with the media today and said he met with a New England medical staff. He did practice with the team on the field today though he was listed as a limited participant. You know what I hardly anybody cares. About the NFL with Soo list. This is from the website out keep their coverage. Dot com. NFL ratings plunges 23 million. Fewer viewers watched divisional playoffs. 23 million. This past weekend the NFL had three very competitive games among its four divisional round playoffs. Unfortunately for the league ratings continued to plummet. In fact ratings are plummeting so much that virtually no major media outlets are even talking about ratings at all. It's almost as if the league and its TV partners and put out the code red. Not to acknowledge the collapse in viewership up in 2018. Here are the ugly details and ahead in the same time slots as last year. This year saints vs vikings. Which and AM game changer walk off touchdown at the end saints vs vikings 35 point six million viewers. Oh last year Packers vs cowboys 48 and a half million. Thirteen million laps. Now granted you know Packers cowboys as a more attractive game. Jags vs Steelers 31 point four million viewers last year Steelers vs chiefs 37 million. This year not titans vs the patriots 26 million viewers. Last year Texans vs the patriots. 29 million viewers. And now this year falcons vs Eagles 27 million viewers. Now last year Seahawks in the falcons' 28 million for every single game was down. No matter how good games may have pin remember three of these games were highly competitive in the divisional round. Whereas last year only cure the games or competitive three of the four windows even feature one of the same teams from last year. And yeah I know the cowboys and the Packers played last year. And those of the two biggest fan base straws in the NFL but even people that game out of the numbers for the other three games they also declined double digits. The three other games were down 15%. 10% and five and a half percent. Adding all these numbers up 120. Point eight million viewers watched the NFL divisional round this year. 144. Point one watched last year a decline of 23 point three million total viewers. That's an overall viewership decline of over 16%. Even steeper. Than the last weeks 13%. Playoff declined. Even if you leave out the Packers cowboys members completely the NFL playoff rating sort of still bend down over 10%. These playoff numbers weren't just bad compared to last year either they hit a ten year low. Will that change this coming weekend of the AFC NFC title game shall see. But no matter how you slice it the NFL ratings both playoff and regular season are collapse saying. In 28 team. In fact play operating declines and an even worse. And they regular season ratings decline it's almost like the fans are fed up. Where they politicization of football. Now that couldn't be at must be another reason. Let's talk so a lot more about Colin Capra neck and players nearly. So mr. argued well I know I think room. And I feel like at one year review TV numbers are showing a Boston 23 million viewers some last year. Act quickly to deal phones we go as anyway get ready to depart here on Wednesday Eugenia and is in poly in high you Jane wants up. Pretty good Bob. I heard old jail like make his comment. And they would come back how are you relate you to manipulate. And other dedicate to it in court I never heard there are so warm that one Obama used them. But lately it can manipulate. Not only that but suddenly your work come list. Or what is obamacare. It'll be sorry Dave and our show. And Albert is welcome biker he gave him a minute there's this break we can't. Now it's it's pretty stand alone and Jeff flake. Who is and departing. The United States and says he's leaving because he just can't continue and to serve in the senate with trump in the White House when in point of fact. He can read polling data as well as anybody else and he knows of the voters of Arizona are ready just kicking to the curb anyway so. You know Jeff flake I think guest appropriately named thank you I Eugene I appreciate the call. And a wrap things up for this wintry Wednesday bear in mind when the temperatures dropping down into the teens overnight. I'm probably ball laboring the obvious here but if you have to be out early in the morning extreme caution is advised because there will be. Black ice in various parts of the upstate especially the further north. I you know towards the North Carolina line. It's it's going to be a bit Dicey. In the morning thanks so much for being on terra will be here along with Sally Rogers to get you started a darkened early and I will see you back tomorrow afternoon. Till then have a great evening stay warm god bless. Unfortunately. I believe we're out of time. Well okay that's our show. In the words of mystical force to. And greens. Yeah. Brian. Must be going right. And I must be outgoing. Happiness and good. I leave eve. I take it. It's. Then. Yeah. Broadcast day.
