This week's poll asks:
Do you believe that some scientists have falsified research data to support their own theories and beliefs about global warming?
*Yes definitely! Follow the money trail. This is a major global control meme, and financial scam. Graham
*Of course they have!! Jim
*Very probably to blame is the flawed manner of how we allow our research to be funded by centralist controlled research facilities from specific organisations like NIWA to University groups, by way of grant and favour controlled by a politically motivated executive who only have tax dollars to waste and no personal accountability. Maybe its not the scientists who need changing but their political paymasters of the world and in particular United Nations, who would reward corruption if it served them to do so. Vern
*It is shocking that the National government doesn't have the guts to admit this. Colleen
*Ensuring they keep and maintain funding and acceptance. David
*I do not trust a word that Scientist say. Marilyn
*Just read Ian Wishart's "Air Con" book and it will readily convince! Ted
*It's a new form of taxation. Ron
*It is called: climbing on the bandwagon set in motion by Al Gore. EJ
*Whether intentionally or not, climate change is one of those emotive topics that attract people with extreme views - and an inability to keep their personal beliefs and biases out of their research. Gary
*It's not science, it's religion (and money). Brian
*It's a smokescreen. Phillip
*Pretty hard to deny. Its so damn obvious! Andy
*If one looks at the evidence from the distant past, it appears Earth has periods of both warming and freezing - a natural cycle and balance and not caused by manknids intervention. I do not believe in global warming and how can money assist in tucking away carbons accused of this present warming? Andrea
*No doubt whatsoever. If God wants the climate to change - He will change it. Frank
*It seems to me that any fool should be able to see that nature it's self puts more "stuff" into the atmosphere than "man" can manage. Volcanoes and thermal gases have been the earth's breathing machanism since time began. There have been changes to the climatic conditions since the earth began, for heavens sake it's not rocket science to read back about these changes and see the changes through geological excavations. Cows farting and people living will never put as much pollution into the atmosphere as Mother Nature herself. Susannah
*Many scientists will only follow the money. If the universities and "green" businesses will only employ believers of the mantra, perhaps it is harder to remain true to science. As with many issues the media mostly take the side of sensation regardless of truth. John
*I have been against the ETS from the beginning. Its political nonsense. Lloyd
*It is an absolute con job and a tragedy that our govt is supporting these lies by way of the ETS. We should have never signed the Kyoto protocol. Fraser
*Even a child with a modicum of basic knowledge on the interaction between the sun & the oceans can easily draw the correct conclusion about anthropogenic climate change: that it's a lie. Adults, even without the benefit of that same basic knowledge, only have to observe the mass transfer of wealth from the public purse, usually via government, to the new "green economy" can see that where there is a massive opportunity for vast wealth accumulation, graft and corruption will be just under the surface.
Regrettably, most children are not taught basic critical information processing / analysis / critique, nor are they even taught accurate science and natural world order facts. Instead they are fed a diet of post-modern socialist "government knows best" thinking & relativistic morals, blended with the lie of Darwinian biological evolutionary change (disproved in a hart-beat by the fossil record, catastrophism, irreducible complexity, the variable speed of light, the digital nature of our universe, and the source of the information in DNA).
Adults, too, are generally in no better position, many having been thoroughly inculcated via one of the many state-run socialist indoctrination centres (pre-schools, kindergartens, schools, universities) over the last 4 decades, thereby having poor critical thinking ability, coupled with a lack of interest in anything greater than themselves, compounded by tall-poppy syndrome & laziness.
What NZ needs is a good dose of strong, straight-talking men & women from the 1940's & '50's. People with a strong moral compass, the courage to call out PC for what it is in every guise that it skulks in, and the determination to remove NZ from the shackles of the UN and their globalist masters. This is a global battle for control / dominance of the entire planet by a small, corrupt and wicked group of people, who care not a jot for us nor starving Africans, and whose sole objective is to subjugate all of humanity under a one-world dictatorship. Climate change, the destruction of absolute morals, the breakup of the family, welfare dependency, political correctness and the raft of other malaises that afflict all of us in NZ from day to day (including the wicked treaty grievance gravy train), are all nothing more than tools of subjugation. The time for revolution is now.
We need to rise up and overthrow the illegitimate political institutions that have been foisted on us in the name of "democracy" (which we don't actually have: just a 3 yearly cycle of "choose the next socialist party to further destroy NZ"), give the UN the middle finger, buckle up, roll our shirt sleeves up, and create a real, honest system of transparent government with courageous leadership.
