Stance on Climate Change

June 23, 2009

“The climate science community has been hijacked by vested interest groups, from politicians to environmentalist extremists, who are more concerned with advocacy for their causes than true unbiased scientific endeavor. We can only hope to have begun here to redress the balance, and to ask the questions which vested interests do not want asked.”4Joe Fone. “A Legacy of Vested Interests,” Investigate Magazine, June 23, 2009.

Key Quotes

September 9, 2011

“Despite oft-repeated claims by the IPCC and its fawning apologists that the planet is heading for some kind of apocalyptic meltdown, the actual empirical evidence suggests precisely the opposite. Europe and the United States are buried in record amounts of snow every year, but somehow the alarmists manage to twist even this into ‘evidence’ of manmade global warming.”5Joe Fone. “Filthy Political Lucre,” Scoop Independent News, September 9, 2011.

“Everything it seems can be attributed to global warming, everything from acne and declining bat populations to deaf fish and zoonotic diseases (www.numberwatch.co.uk/warmlist.htm). And in order to dilute growing public scepticism and suspicions that the science is not stacking up, the alarmists shift the goal posts so that “global warming” tends to be downplayed while promoting “climate change” or “climate disruption” and now “climate challenges” to account for the obvious contradictions.”6Joe Fone. “Filthy Political Lucre,” Scoop Independent News, September 9, 2011.

“Epicurus understood more about how the earth behaves than the IPCC does two millennia later.”7Kohn Shade. “Book Review: Climate Change: Natural or Manmade?Bishop Hill, March 12, 2013.

June 23, 2009

“Truth has nothing to do with it. To the politicians, it’s about power; to the AGW scientists, it’s about funding; to the media, it’s a marketable commodity and to the environmentalists, it’s a religious conviction and a need to impose socialist controls. The only people who care about the truth are the sceptics.” 8Joe Fone. “A Legacy of Vested Interests,” Investigate Magazine, June 23, 2009.
