1988 – A Critical Year For The Global Warming Scam

The hot summer of 1988 was seized upon by global warming fraudsters like James Hansen and Steven Schneider, as an opportunity to begin working their scam into the public consciousness. The scamsters predicted 3-9 degrees warming by 2030 in this Chicago Tribune article.

This is the same Steven Schneider who previously explained why a runaway greenhouse effect is impossible, and why two degrees warming was highly unlikely over the next several thousand years.


In 1984 the Chicago Tribune reported a sharp cooling trend, and that Illinois temperatures were barely warmer in 1980 than they were in 1870.

The summer of 1988 was the last really hot summer in Illinois, where hot days have become a thing of the past. Ninety degree days occur less than half as often now as they did in the 1930’s.

A year later in 1989, Hansen bumped his scam forecasts up to nine degrees warming – while Tom Karl of NOAA explained that almost all observed warming occurred before 1919, and that Earth had cooled from 1921 to 1979.

In 1989, NOAA stated that there had been no warming in the US over the past century.

U.S. Data Since 1895 Fail To Show Warming Trend

The 1995 IPCC report showed no global troposphere warming from 1958 to 1994.


In 1992, Mark Serreze found no evidence that Earth is suffering from the greenhouse effect.

There was no indication that Earth was warming, but by 1989 the UN had recognized that pushing global warming was a way to seize power, and said it would kill us all by the year 2000.

Globalists co-opted a few crooked scientists like Hansen and Schneider by 1988, and eventually Tom Karl and Mark Serreze went over to the dark side too.

Global warming is the biggest scam in science history. It is based on the same idea which globalists have always used.

Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.

    But they are sure making a good run at it.

      “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” — William Casey, CIA Director, (first Reagan staff meeting 1981)

      Barbara Honegger is the source of that quote.

      I am the source for this quote, which was indeed said by CIA Director William Casey at an early February 1981 meeting of the newly elected President Reagan with his new cabinet secretaries to report to him on what they had learned about their agencies in the first couple of weeks of the administration.

      The meeting was in the Roosevelt Room in the West Wing of the White House, not far from the Cabinet Room. I was present at the meeting as Assistant to the chief domestic policy adviser to the President. Casey first told Reagan that he had been astonished to discover that over 80 percent of the ‘intelligence’ that the analysis side of the CIA produced was based on open public sources like newspapers and magazines.

      As he did to all the other secretaries of their departments and agencies, Reagan asked what he saw as his goal as director for the CIA, to which
      he replied with this quote, which I recorded in my notes of the meeting
      as he said it. Shortly thereafter I told Senior White House correspondent Sarah McClendon, who was a close friend and colleague, who in turn made it public.

    It’s HERE!!! The Reorganization cometh. On Trump’s schedule today 3/13:

    4:30 pm || Signs an Executive Order entitled “Comprehensive Plan for Reorganizing the Executive Branch”

    Hoping this is the consolidation and reassignment that is so desperately needed especially in the areas a climate.

    I will never forget around 1990, watching some pompous pseudo-intellectual with a beard testifying in front of Congress, talking about up to 11 degrees of warming in the not too distant future.

    This was right after a decade of extreme cold outbreaks and an unprecedented series of devastating Florida freezes that had wiped out (permanently) the northern half of the orange groves. I knew right then and there that something did not add up.

    That’s why Jim Hunt sits on his keyboard to pounce on your blogs because your threatening his cushy bread and butter with massive doses of truth and logic…..Ouch Jim!…..sorry

    Progressive science journalism, A.D. 2017:

    Scott Pruitt, the new administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, seems like a refined and intelligent man. Speaking in public, he has an easy manner, a winsome smirk, and a pleasant drawl.

    Yet on Thursday, Pruitt let slip an opinion that was ugly, and false, and ugly in its falsehood. Carbon dioxide, he said, is not a “primary contributor” to global warming.


    There! He’s ugly! Everyone who likes him is ugly! Everyone he likes is ugly!

    Ironically Phil Jones published a research paper just about that time. It is addressed in the following article. The left hand doesn’t know what the right hand is doing.
