Global Warming or Global Governance?
Global Warming or Global Governance?

This article summarizes the documentary video ”Global Warming or Global Governance?” by Michael Coffman of Sovereignty International, presenting video segments from the video with descriptions and transcripts where appropriate.

The documentary examines the science and motives behind claims of the effects of global warming being extreme and created mostly by man’s activities, and shows how such claims are frequently exaggerated for deceptive and dangerous globalist agendas.

From the official website:

If you were to ask ten people on the street if mankind was causing global warming, at least eight out of ten would say yes. After all, Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth allegedly provides incontrovertible evidence that this is the case. Both presidential candidates are committed to passing economically devastating legislation that will do little to nothing to stop global warming. Contrary to what is heard in the media, however, there is overwhelming evidence that the warming we are experiencing is natural, with maybe a small amount contributed by man’s activities. Nor is there any scientific consensus. 31,000 scientists have signed a petition stating there is ”no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide is causing...catastrophic” warming. The debate is still raging within the scientific community. In this DVD, Sovereignty International has put together interviews of respected climate scientists and biologists from numerous sources who explain, step by step, why Al Gore and the global warming alarmists are incorrect. In some cases, blatantly so.

The DVD also provides evidence that the global warming agenda is being funded with tens of billions of dollars as a mechanism to create global governance. Hear from congressmen, experts and even well-known news broadcasters how global governance puts global institutions, especially the United Nations (UN), that are not accountable to the American people in control of every aspect of our economy. The skyrocketing gas and food prices today are a direct result of this agenda.

Motives of the Globalist Establishment - from 'Global Warming or Global Governance?'
  view individual page  |   view in popup windowRunning Time: 26 minutes 48 seconds  

This compilation of video clips from the documentary video "Global Warming or Global Governance?" discusses why many scientists, journalists, and politicians of the political establishment have an agenda of perpetuating the idea of current global warming being extreme and caused by man's activities, despite much surprising evidence to the contrary— largely due to common ulterior motives of offering solutions which actually impose deceptive and dangerous globalist agendas.

Currently over $4 billion is being spent annually on global warming research, and the issue has turned into a cottage industry with a large cadre of scientists on "soft money"— meanting they would often cease to recieve funding if they do not somehow show a global warming connection to carbon dioxide emissions through their research.

Scientists who deny man caused warming are frequently accused of taking money from the energy industry, but very often the opposite is true. Many energy companies exert heavy political pressure for allocating increasingly large amounts of money to the global warming issue and for passing economically damaging legislation, and often such companies individually receive billions of dollars from that legislation.

Global warming issues are being used by powerful political organizations to help form a centralized world government, by setting precedents for international control and regulation which are shown to actually have little or nothing to do with global warming, such as the Kyoto Protocol. The video clip shows many examples of political elites having deceptive agendas of dissolving the sovereignty of nations including the United States, through setting up treaties which erode personal freedoms, national security, and land ownership among many other rights.

The media and political groups such as the United Nation's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ( IPCC ) commonly distort issues concerning global warming by continually stating that it is a "settled science" and there is no longer any reason to debate, even though it is shown that a large proportion of climate scientists are doubtful of man's role in global warming and do not believe that the science is sound enough for formulating policy decisions.

Most in the government and media get the wrong impression from reading the "Summaries for Policy Makers" put out by the IPCC. Dr. Vincent Gray, an Expert IPCC Reviewer and Climate Consultant in New Zealand says "This 'Summary for Policy Makers' isn't a summary for policy makers at all, it is a summary 'by' policy makers— in other words, it is a summary that is agreed line by line, by government representatives. The IPCC is a political organization, set up by the United Nations, to provide evidence to support the framework convention on climate change which has been signed by governments, it is entirely political."

Also shown is a CNN broadcast by Chris Horner explaining how the IPCC reports are controlled by bureaucrats, policy makers, and pressure group lobbyists who modify the findings of contributing scientists to conform to pre-specified summaries which are established months before the underlying work is actually even written.

Discussed are United Nations global conferences which pose to be democratic conventions of representatives of over 100 nations who come together to vote for plans they all agree on. However it is shown that the policies are written ahead of time and the delegates are manipulated to produce what is called 'consensus,' which is never submitted to Congress. For example, the consensus process at a recent United Nations meeting about global warming was so firmly planted that at the opening day of the conference that there was consensus already formed, without suitable opportunity for debate. Essentially the agenda had been set beforehand and delegates come to the table to find what their working orders are.

Michael Coffman explains why the Koyoto protocol has nothing to do with actually reducing the carbon dioxide levels in the earth's atmosphere. Nations such as China and Russia would not be bound by the treaty and could continue to expand and pollute forever, and in fact China will overtake the emissions of carbon dioxide by the United States within two years. In actually, it is a massive income redistribution plan to shift money to third world nations as well as making them subservient, and it will not help global warming whatsoever.

Carroll Quigley's book "Tragedy and Hope" which was published in 1975 explains many of the long-term agendas of the Globalists, including "...the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. (p 324)." These private groups, meetings and conferences still exist today under a cloud of secrecy, such as with the Council on Foreign Relations, the Club of Rome, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group and many others.

The phrase "New World Order" raised many red flags of concern and was dropped almost as soon as President Bush mentioned it during the first Gulf War. Soon afterwards, The Commission on Global Governance was formed in association with the United Nations, and in the report "Our Global Neighborhood" published in 1995, it laid out a list of justification and implementation goals needed to implement global governance, and it reported that issues concerning the environment are key to formulating global governance. On page 208 it states that "Considerable strides have been made in creating a system of international environmental governance to achieve global sustainable development through the management of cross-border environmental disputes and protection of the global commons." On page 213 it states "A carbon tax... would no doubt be a valuable step forward...towards a radically different system— one that taxes the resource use rather than employment (through payroll taxes) and savings. This would recognize the need to discourage excessive consumption and would stimulate employment as part of a strategy of sustainable development." This strategy is used in Al Gore's proposed plans for implementing carbon taxes.

Al Gore is interested in the use of "cap and trade schemes" which are to be implemented through a system he helped to create while being Vice President which involves "public-private partnerships"— which shift decision making from the electorate and elected officials to a non-accountable partnership of non-governmental organizations, government bureaucracies, and multinational corporations at the international, national, and local levels. Since these organizations are not elected and not accountable to the electorate, they are free to impose their will on the people. All of this is driven by often deliberately fabricated needs of "sustainable development," such as the Kyoto Protocol which would allow control over our economy by international bureaucracies that will impose carbon taxes and cap and trade schemes exactly as the Commission on Global Governance and Al Gore propose. These partnerships create a neo-facist relationship between governments and corporations which create monopolies. Once this process is fully in place there will no longer be free market enterprise, but rather total economic control by corporations and political elites. It is a configuration predicted by Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope," and is a defining factor of what is meant by the term "Global Governance" and "The New World Order."

A CNN Lou Dobbs news report is shown explaining how corporate fascism is spreading throughout the North American continent, and how profits of corporations have increased 45% while wages of American workers has risen only 3% in the same time. Also explained is how the decision making processes are shifted to dangerously configured and unaccountable corporations rather than through the electorate and elected officials.

A more recent George Bush plan for reducing carbon dioxide emissions has "improvements" over the Kyoto Protocol, however it still establishes a huge international bureaucracy which is not accountable to the United States and the world. United Nations documents make is very clear that they want to set up a regulatory structure that would affect every man, woman, and child on planet Earth, and all of the control would be headquartered in the United Nations.

Temperatures Have Historically Driven CO2 Levels - from 'Global Warming or Global Governance?'

This video clip from the film "Global Warming or Global Governance" shows that a major premise of the film "Inconvenient Truth" is that Carbon Dioxide is the major greenhouse gas that drives the temperature of the Earth. In fact a high correlation does exist between CO2 levels and temperate, however examinations of ice core data proves that temperature levels have driven the levels of CO2, not the other way around. Historically CO2 levels have lagged temperature increases by as much as 800 years.

The Role of Water Vapor in Warming of the Climate - from 'Global Warming or Global Governance'
  view individual page  |   view in popup windowRunning Time: 2 minutes 56 seconds  

This video clip from the documentary "Global Warming or Global Governance" talks about the proportional roles that various greenhouse gasses have in warming the climate.

The overwhelming majority of all greenhouse gasses is water vapor and clouds, with water vapor making up 96.9% of the greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere and Carbon Dioxide comprising less than 2%.

Many proponents of CO2 caused global warming claim that water vapor is highly variable across the Earth and from season to season, so therefore it is not important. Additionally, they claim CO2 has far greater potential as a greenhouse gas than a small amount would otherwise indicate. Although there is some truth to these claims, water vapor remains the dominant greenhouse gas.

At any one time, water vapor accounts for 36% to 76% of the total greenhouse gas effects, if clouds are included, it jumps to 66% to 86%, Carbon Dioxide comes in a distant third by accounting for only 9% to 27%. Man's activities account for only 3% of the total Carbon Dioxide, so at a maximum, man is responsible for only about 1% of all the potential greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere.

We see the greenhouse power of water vapor every day. Temperatures in the desert can easily reach 110 degrees F during the summer, and during the night the temperature can easily drop down to 65 degrees, a drop of 45 degrees F. The change is so large because of very low water vapor in the desert. Conversely, because the humid deep south has high levels of water vapor, daytime temperatures rarely go over 100 degrees F, and drop to only 80 degrees at night, a difference of only 20 degrees. That represents a 25 degree difference between the deserts and the humid areas in day / night temperatures, all due to the amount of water vapor.

We also see the greenhouse effect of clouds on a regular basis. The temperature may drop to 50 degrees at night when it is clear, but it remains at 65 degrees when it is cloudy, a difference of 15 degrees or more between clear and cloudy weather.

The greenhouse power of water vapor and clouds dwarfs that of Carbon Dioxide. And remember, only a tiny amount of the Carbon Dioxide greenhouse effect is caused by man.

Professor Tim Patterson, Dept. of Earth Sciences, University of Carleton: "If you want to categorize greenhouse gasses ... Greenhouse gasses number one, two, three and four is water vapor, with Carbon Dioxide being a distant five. CO2 has an influence, but it is certainly not enough for us to worry about."

Sea Level Issues - from 'Global Warming or Global Governance?'

This video clip from the documentary ”Global Warming or Global Governance” explains why the sea levels of the Earth will not rise by a significant amount over the next century, and debunks some of the exaggerated claims about the effects of recent climate warming such as the issue of declining polar bear populations.

While Al Gore claimed that sea levels could rise by as much as 20 feet over the next century due to ice melting on the edge of the Arctic and Greenland, it is shown that those claims are false due to the fact that as ice melts on the edges of those bodies, it tends to accumulate more in their centers due to increased precipitation.

On July 25, 1942, two B-17 Flying Fortresses were forced to make an emergency landing on Greenland's southern Ice Cap. The crew was rescued, but the planes were left on the ice. In 1988, a team was led to find the missing planes. They expected to find the planes within 40 feet of the surface, but they eventually found them 268 feet below the ice surface. The team used hot water to extract a plane, and it is now flying again. It is shown that the ice simply accumulated on top of the plane rather than pushing over it due to the plane being fully intact when extracted.

Links of Global Warming to Extreme Weather - from ‘Global Warming or Global Governance?'
  view individual page  |   view in popup windowRunning Time: 3 minutes 47 seconds  

This video clip shows proof that extreme weather activity such as tornadoes and hurricanes are not made stronger by the warming of the Earth’s climate, and in fact such storms are decreased in severity due to such warming.

Following is a description of the information from this clip:

We frequently hear that the incidence and severity of extreme weather— such as hurricanes, blizzards, droughts and floods are increasing, and we are told that global warming is the cause.

History shows that storm frequency and intensity is greatest in colder periods. The extreme weather of the Little Ice Age from the years 1550 to 1850 provides a good example, the storms were much more dramatic then with intensity that has not been seen since. The Thames river in England would freeze over and there would be ice parties. Crop failures meant starvation and plagues were common. It was a very difficult time to live.

It is shown that the active 2005 hurricane season is not associated with global warming according to data from the National Hurricane Center, which shows that there is no corellation between hurricanes and a warming climate over the past 150 years.

Hurricane experts are almost unanimously say that it is highly unlikely the global warming is increasing the frequency and the intensity of hurricanes. William Grey, National Hurricane Center: "In our view they are well within nature's variation."

Recently research at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has demonstrated that global warming may actually increase wind sheer over the tropical waters of the Atlantic and eastern Pacific Tropical Zones, much like what happened in the 2006 El Nino year, when no hurricanes struck the United States at all. Wind sheer could keep hurricanes from forming, intensifying, or even cause them to disorganize.

( A NOAA animation is also show explaining how wind sheer due to warmer temperatures works to help dissipate hurricanes. )

Positive Effects of CO2 - from 'Global Warming or Global Governance?'

This video clip shows how elevated levels of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere are shown not to be harmful, and in fact have many beneficial properties for the growth of plant life.

Many periods in the Earth’s past history have had CO2 levels much higher than they are today, which has been shown to be corresponding with increasingly abundant plant life and also the domestication of many plant species.

The Reality of Temperatures Over the Past Century - from 'Global Warming or Global Governance?'
  view individual page  |   view in popup windowRunning Time: 1 minute 53 seconds  

This video clip from the documentary "Global Warming or Global Governance?" talks about the reality of global temperatures over the past decade and century.

In 1998 a major El Nino occurred which made the temperatures of the earth increase by 1 degree Celsius, and there has been no statistical increase in the climate's temperature since that year despite continually increasing Carbon Dioxide levels.

Also, in August of 2007, analyst Stephen MacIntyre had discovered that NASA data supporting the claim that 1998 was the warmest year on record had contained an error, and in fact 1934 was the warmest year on record in the United States. Out of the five hottest years of the past century, three occurred before 1940, and only two were found in the past ten years in the United States.

Issues with 'The Hockey Stick Curve' - from 'Global Warming or Global Governance?'
  view individual page  |   view in popup windowRunning Time: 4 minutes 57 seconds  

This video clip explains inaccuracies with one of the most recently accepted methodologies for describing temperature variations over the past thousand years, known as the "Hockey Stick Curve," which has been put forth in a report in 1998 entitled "MBH98," which was quickly accepted by official organizations in the global warming community without proper auditing as the "smoking gun" showing that recent warming is unusual. The report rejected previously widely accepted temperature graphs in favor of flattening the high and low temperatures over the past thousand years, which makes the current century appear to be out of the ordinary compared to the temperatures of the past.

An Independent audit put forth in the "MacIntyre McKitrick" report have shown the methodologies for deriving the "hockey stick curve" to be flawed due to a computer programming error, which has been shown to nearly always result in "hockey stick" shaped results with a variety of different input data. The report created so much controversy that the US Congress authorized the National Academy of Sciences to study and report on the issue. The National Academy essentially supported the "MacIntyre McKitrick" report by warning that the methodology used by the MBH98 report should not be used by this type of research because it "tends to bias the shape of the reconstructions." Although the report criticized other aspects of the MBH98 report, it did so in an apologetic manner, leading the media to proclaim that the report actually supported the MBH98 report.

Separate from the National Academy, the Energy and Commerce Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives commissioned three prominent statisticians chaired by Edward Wegman, Chairman of the National Sciences Committee on Theoretical and Applied Statistics to refute both the MBH98 and the Macintyre McKitrick report. Wegman wrote "While the work of Michael Mann and colleagues presents what appears to be compelling evidence of global temperature change, the criticisms of McIntyre and McKitrick, as well as those of other authors mentioned are indeed valid. We found the MBH98 to be somewhat obscure and incomplete and the criticisms of [McIntyre-McKitrick] to be valid and compelling."

In spite of many questions about the legitimacy of the "Hockey Stick" graph, Al Gore prominently displays its results in his film "Inconvenient Truth," as do many official reports put out by the United Nations.
