Gelbspan & Trump’s EPA Transition Team leader

For over two decades, both the overall enviro-activist community and the mainstream media have had what amounts to nearly absolute control over framing the public narrative about the global warming issue. “It’s a settled science with a 97% consensus to back it up, and the critics who pop up are bribed to lie by the fossil fuel industry,” they say. But they were too complacent in their belief expectations about the 2016 US presidential race, and were blindsided by the election results. Now, while they still have control over the situation, the long knives are out for Donald Trump and anyone he chooses for resolving the global warming problem. But these efforts are political suicide to an absolutely embarrassing extent. Continue reading

‘Honest Information’ then; ‘Tyranny Advocacy’ now?

At GelbspanFiles.com, my main focus is to amass a collection of information which shows myriad problems with the accusation that skeptic climate scientists are paid industry money to lie and spread misinformation, and myriad problems with the people surrounding that accusation, including one of the main promulgators of alleged ‘core evidence’ proving it, global alarmist book author Ross Gelbspan. Considering recent news about the Exxon corporation sending out document retention request letters against those who accuse it of hoodwinking its shareholders about the certainty of catastrophic man-caused global warming, there is perhaps some chance that my work may be used as a guide on ‘who’ needs to preserve ‘what’ in such efforts. But it is worthwhile to also see what possibly motivated the wider efforts behind the smear of skeptic scientists – I’ve done so once before, and now there’s a new and more troubling revelation coming from Gelbspan.

Background: The epicenter for the ‘Industry-corrupted Skeptic Climate Scientists’ Accusation

The origin of the accusation is critical, and begs for investigation because it is what put the accusation into existence in the first place. But the accusation would have died of neglect if it hadn’t gotten major media traction, and resulting additional interest and promotion from that. Where that particular media traction began is the epicenter, and the manner in which it came about, combined with the people surrounding it, is equally if not more worthy of deep investigation.

Background: The ‘core evidence’ for the Industry-corrupted Skeptic Climate Scientists Accusation

Among the four elements making up what I call the ‘smear of skeptic climate scientists’ – namely, the ‘industry-corrupted skeptic climate scientists’ accusation, the ‘core evidence’ for the accusation, the epicenter of the smear, and Ross Gelbspan – the topic of today’s post is the easiest to explain. Continue reading

Background: The ‘industry-corrupted skeptic climate scientists’ Accusation

Since more readers are arriving at this blog, I thought it would be a good idea to create a new “Background” post category, so that those who are basically unfamiliar with the 20 year+ smear of skeptic climate scientists can easily read a set of elemental details explaining what I mean when I refer to the ‘industry-corrupted skeptic climate scientists’ accusation, the ‘core evidence’ for the accusation, the epicenter of the smear, and Ross Gelbspan. First in the series is “The Accusation.” Continue reading

Pay No Attention to those Words Behind the Curtain

The title of today’s blog is a paraphrase of the famous quote out of the 1938 film, The Wizard of Oz. Watch the global warming issue zooming by in a superficial manner and all the horrific claims – increasingly extreme weather events, imperiled polar bear populations, skeptics who are paid to lie about the truth of all of this – sound like they are true. But turn any variety of those claims sideways by examining them carefully, and an edge digs in, and it soon becomes apparent that the number of disingenuous situations in the global warming issue is breathtaking. Today, a wipeout from an older version of Ross Gelbspan’s own website that’ll make anyone cringe. Continue reading
