Implications of the Gore Hoax
for International Policy

Feb. 26, 2007 (EIRNS)—The following release was issued today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee (LPAC).

Leading economist and prominent Democratic Party figure Lyndon LaRouche will address an international webcast on March 7 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, on the Implications of the Gore Hoax for International Policy. The webcast will be streamed live at www.larouchepac.com.

The Gore Hoax itself is the subject of a mass leaflet released February 24 by LPAC, under the title "The Global Warming Hoax: True CO2 Record Buried Under Gore." The leaflet begins by exposing a shocking fraud:

"The historical record of atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations, claimed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as the justification for greenhouse gas reduction, is a fraud. Research by a Freiburg, Germany professor, Ernst-Georg Beck of the Merian-Schule, shows that the IPCC construed and concocted the pre-1957 CO2 record from measurements on recently drilled ice cores, ignoring more than 90,000 direct measurements by chemical methods from 1857 to 1957.

"The IPCC's hoked-up record attempts to prove that CO2 concentrations have been steadily increasing with the progress of human industrial civilization. Beck's work confirms a wealth of previous investigations which demonstrate that the IPCC cherrypicked its data in an attempt to prove that we must stop industrial development and return to the horse-and-buggy age, or face oppressive heat and melting of the polar ice caps. It shows that the Kyoto Treaty on reduction of greenhouse gases was based on a scientific fraud which violates the laws of the universe, denying the well-established determination of climate by cyclical variations in the Earth-Sun orbital relationship and in the Sun's heat output.

"In a thorough review of 175 scientific papers, Professor Beck found that the founders of modern greenhouse theory, Guy Stewart Callendar and Charles David Keeling (a special idol of Al Gore's), had completely ignored careful and systematic measurements by some of the most famous names of physical chemistry, among them several Nobel prize winners. Measurements by these chemists showed that today's atmospheric CO2 concentration of about 380 parts per million (ppm) have been exceeded in the past, including a period from 1936 to 1944, when the CO2 levels varied from 393.0 to 454.7 ppm.

"There were also measurements, accurate to within 3%, of 375.00 ppm in 1885 (Hempel in Dresden), 390.0 in 1866 (Gorup, Erlangen), and 416.0 in 1857 and 1858 (von Gilm, Innsbruck). Ironically, although the 1940s increase correlated with a period of average atmospheric warming, Beck and others have shown that the warming preceded the increase in CO2 concentrations....

"By contrast, the measurements hoked up from ice cores, show a rather steady increase in CO2 levels, conveniently corresponding to the preconceived idea that increasing industrial activity has produced a steady CO2 increase. As Beck's collaborator, Dr. Zbigniew Jaworoswki, former senior advisor to the Polish radiation monitoring service and a veteran mountaineer who has excavated ice from 17 glaciers on six continents, has shown, the gaseous inclusions in ice cores have no validity as historical proxies for atmospheric concentrations. The continual freezing, refreezing, and pressurization of ice columns drastically alters the original atmospheric concentrations of the gas bubbles."

The exposure of this conscious scientific fraud, LaRouche noted, is crucial to breaking through the opposition to the policies which must be adopted immediately, in order to save the world economy from a disastrous collapse. There are certain critical areas of advanced economics, which require urgent, immediate investment—such as nuclear energy—and thus the anti-technology frauds of the likes of Gore must be exposed, and destroyed.

It's obvious we have to get rid of Cheney, LaRouche continued. But the main reason to do it is to remove the blocks to adopting a sane economic policy. Exposing the Gore hoax is another one of those blocks—and will open the door to adopting the new financial architecture which LaRouche has proposed.
