Scorching new evidence of the environmental left’s scientific obstruction has surfaced in the squelching of reports of Japanese satellite data, which suggest that the underdeveloped world emits far more carbon dioxide than previously imagined, even more than many Western nations! If the claim is substantiated, it could turn the entire meme that industrialized civilization is endangering the planet on its head.
When John O’Sullivan, a climate non-dogmatist, discovered the data and published an article on Suite 101, he was immediately fired and his posts removed for the last two years. Of course, the enviroleft is going to say that is because his article was so absurd. But isn’t it the point of the scientific method that if one can falsify a theory, one does so using transparent, replicable methods and publishes the findings in open, apolitical, peer-reviewed journals? In other words, if his findings are so ridiculous, isn’t it the job of the climate dogmatists to point out why?
Simply disagreeing with the results of a study doesn’t make the data, or the questions, go away. If the underdeveloped world is emitting more CO2 than the Western world, then what need would there be for global redistribution of wealth based on the presumption that carbon emissions are “destroying the planet” and causing catastrophic “climate change”? What would the findings tell us about the unfounded hysteria surrounding the argument that man’s activities are warming the planet? And furthermore, wouldn’t they also suggest that the environmentalist movement has thus far been politics first, science second?
There is no place for censorship in the scientific community, or in Western civilization as a whole. When the “consensus” wants to shut somebody up, that’s because it has something to hide. Fortunately for us, there are ways to get around censorship, but expect it to get even more heavy-handed as the manmade global warming fraud gets increasingly exposed.
The most important conclusion one could take away from the data, if proved accurate, is that the West’s better health and living standards are no accident, and the industry that makes it possible is no danger to mankind as a whole. Industrial society would rightfully be restored as an overall benefit to human health, rather than a supposed global scourge.
