Global Warming: The Evolution of a Hoax

Only forty-some years ago, "climate science" suddenly turned from advancing a theory of global cooling to one of global warming. A 123-page paper by Christopher Booker, published by the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), explains this sudden change in terms of a "groupthink" belief system formulated and perpetuated by a few strong personalities. Through key positions, and with sympathetic lobbyist groups, the theory overwhelmed politics during its formative years in the 1970s from its center in various United Nations agencies until its unraveling began in the late 1990s.

The first of those personalities was Swedish meteorologist Professor Bert Bolin (1925-2007), who believed that increasing atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide from industrialization would inevitably lead to global warming. Bolin presented his views in 1979 at a first-ever meeting of the "World Climate Conference," sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The WMO is a 191-member-country agency of the United Nations (U.N.), headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland.

Bolin had developed his theory in the 1950s during thirty-five years of declining temperatures. Through the 1970s, many scientists, activists, and policymakers had voiced alarm at global cooling. A common view was that the cooling effect of more dust in the atmosphere, from volcanoes and industrial smokestacks, more than offset the warming effects of carbon dioxide and might require dire policies, such as those proposed by Dr. Arnold Reitze, to include banning the internal combustion engine, regulating industrial research and development, and limiting population.

Six years later, Bolin presented a longer paper for a 1985 conference in Villach, Austria, in which he concluded that "human-induced climate change" called for urgent action at the "highest level." An attendee who became convinced was Dr. John Houghton, a former professor of atmospheric physics at Oxford, who had been head of the U.K. MET since 1983, was founder of the Hadley Centre in 1990, and would be the lead editor of the first three reports (1990, 1996, and 2001) of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The IPCC was established in 1988 by two U.N. agencies, the WMO and the United Nations Environment Program. UNEP was founded in 1972 by Maurice Strong, its first director, as a result of the U.N. Conference on the Human Environment held in June, 1972.

Strong was a Canadian self-made billionaire in the energy business, who once self-identified as a "socialist in ideology, a capitalist in methodology." He became greatly involved in U.N. activities and influenced the Stockholm Conference through a 1971 report he commissioned on "the state of the planet," a summary of the findings of 152 "leading experts from 58 countries." A December 2015 Breitbart article described Strong as a "totalitarian control freak" for his expressed desire to deny national sovereignty to achieve "global environmental co-operation" through the transformation of the U.N. into a world government. (Strong later co-founded the Chicago Climate Exchange.)

The IPCC originally represented 34 nations, with Bolin its first chairman and Houghton chairing "Working Group I," charged with contributing the climate change section of a first "assessment report." Houghton himself wrote the summary of that report, which cited computer models indicating that...
