Global Warming, Environmental Current Headlines/ More Scandals (update August 2012)

AUGUST 2012   Leaked Emails Snag Global-Warming Alarmists: 'Skeptics will be all over us – the world is really cooling' While NASA climate alarmist James Hansen insists record summer heat and drought are caused by man-made global warming, leaked internal emails from just three summers ago reveal that he and his colleagues expressed alarm that the planet was inexplicably cooling. Hansen, often called the “godfather of global warming,” asserted earlier this month that blistering heat across the United States is so rare that it can’t be anything but the man-made global warming he has been warning about for decades. “This is not some scientific theory,” he told the Associated Press. “We are now experiencing scientific fact.” But in 2009, as the thermometer hit record lows in America, he and other climate scientists panicked in a flurry of emails: “Skeptics will be all over us – the world is really cooling, the models are no good.” They lamented that Mother Nature was not cooperating with their predictions that global temperatures would smash heat records last decade. They blamed their miscalculation on sulfate emission trajectories and revised their forecast to show a cooling trend lasting until 2020. Then, they predicted, global warming would return with a vengeance. In an Oct. 12, 2009, email to Hansen of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, fellow warming alarmist Kevin Trenberth of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo., asked, “Where the heck is global warming?” “We have been asking that here in Boulder where we have broken records the past two days for the coldest days on record,”...

Fourth Pro-Life World Congress Calls Abortion “Mega-Genocide”

The representatives of national and international pro-life organizations who gathered in Saragossa, Spain from November 6 to 8, 2009, in the Fourth Pro-Life World Congress, have issued a statement – the so-called Declaration of Saragossa – that has condemned the slaughter of the unborn by abortion as a “mega-genocide.” Comparing the six million “legal” deaths in the Nazi concentration camps, which constitute the international crime of genocide, to the “eight hundred million deaths, provoked, up to the moment, by means of ‘legal’ abortions, in the countries of the world that have authorized it,” the Declaration states that “for its number and extension” abortion “constitutes a crime against humanity, a mega-genocide.” The Declaration identifies the UN and its agencies, various international organizations such as the Rockefeller, Ford, Gates, and Soros Foundations and the International Federation of Family Planning (IPPF), as well as “the current president of the United States of America and the bureaucracy of the European Union, among other groups of global power,” as the main elements that encourage, “sometimes in a direct way and sometimes using euphemisms,” this mega-genocide. The pro-life representatives make a distinction between the lives lost to direct abortion, and the “hardly determinable number of victims” of “diverse contraceptives capable of killing human beings in their first days of life,” such as intrauterine devices (IUDs), the “morning after” pill, systemic use contraceptive pills, injectable or subdermal implants, and the chemical abortifacient drug misoprostol. Artificial fertilization also falls within this category of “invisible mega-genocide,” since, according to statistics, only 4% of embryos conceived in “extracorporeal fertilization” (e.g. IVF) are born. Demanding respect for life from conception...

Eugenics, an American Dynasty, and Roe v. Wade

by Rebecca R. Messall, Esq. This article is taken from its fuller version in the fall 2004 issue of Human Life Review, available in its entirety at www.humanlifereview.com. Everyone knows that the infamous Roe v. Wade opinion legalized abortion, but almost no one knows that legal abortion was a strategy by eugenicists, as early as 1939, to “genetically improve” the population by “reducing it”. In writing his opinion, Roe‘s author, Justice Harry A. Blackmun, relied directly and indirectly on the work of these British and American eugenicists. Eugenics is easiest to describe as being the Darwin-based theory behind the Nazis’ plans to “breed” a race of human thoroughbreds. After Hitler, eugenic theorists advocated global control over who has babies, and how many. It has been called “population thinking”. America’s richest families promoted eugenicists and their many social initiatives, including Roe. One of the clearest links between the eugenics movement and U.S. abortion policy is visible in the American Eugenics Society’s (AES) 1956 membership records, which includes a Planned Parenthood co-founder, Margaret Sanger, and at least 2 presidents, William Vogt and Alan Guttmacher. The AES had an ugly history of multiple ties to prominent Nazis in Germany. AES members assisted Hitler in crafting the 1933 German sterilization laws. Unbelievably, in 1956 — after WWII — the AES membership list included Dr. Otmar Frieherr Von Verschuer, who had supervised the ongoing “science” experiments of Dr. Josef Mengele at Auschwitz. The AES lobbied successfully for involuntary sterilization laws in the USA, which claimed an estimated 63,000 victims. In 1927, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld those laws in Buck v. Bell, which was...
