Here's a brief news note. The December 12 edition of Berliner Zeitung carried a story about the "deniers of climate change" and among the luminaries named was none other than your humble servant.
Thanks to Google's translation service, I was able to read the article in English. Apparently my "followers" believe that the IPCC and other's claims are "unproven." Well, the reporter got that right, but I have great doubts that I have any "followers." I am not leading any kind of organized campaign, but am merely someone commenting on "global warming", the lies that support it, and the consequences should the world be duped into accepting the "solutions" being offered.
The news report goes on to criticize "more than 30 press releases, all in the same tone" being issued presumably by horrible people who, like me, who are more fond of facts than wild claims that the Earth is in immediate danger. The daily deluge of "Green" propaganda received no comparable notice.
Lord Christopher Monckton, a British Member of Parliament and outspoken critic of "global warming", is cited in the article and I am frankly pleased to be named in such distinguished company.
On December 13, more than 100 prominent scientists signed a letter to the United Nations that said, in essence, attempting to control the Earth's climate was, in their words, "ultimately futile."
"It is not possible to stop climate change, a natural phenomenon that has affected humanity through the ages."
It's flattering, I suppose, that some reporter in Germany considers me to be the leader of the pack, but the truth is I am a very minor player, albeit an obviously well-read and vocal one.
Alan Caruba passed on June 15, 2015. His keen wit, intellect, and desire to see that "right" be done will be missed by all who his life touched. His archives will remain available online at this site.
Alan Caruba was the founder of The National Anxiety Center, a clearinghouse for information about media-driven scare campaigns designed to influence public opinion and policy. A veteran public relations counselor and professional writer, Caruba emerged as a conservative voice through his weekly column, "Warning Signs", posted on the Center's Internet site (www.anxietycenter.com) and widely excerpted on leading sites including this one.
A member of the Society of Professional Journalists, the American Society of Journalists and Authors, and a charter member of the National Book Critics Circle, Caruba applied a wide-ranging knowledge of business, science, history and other topics to his examination of issues that included protecting our national sovereignty, environment and immigration, education and international affairs.
Caruba resided in New Jersey and had served in the US Army, had been an advisor to corporations, trade associations, universities, and others who used his public relations skills for many years. He maintained a business site at www.caruba.com.
Caruba performed many reviews of both fiction and non-fiction at Bookviews.Com, a popular site for news about books of merit that do not necessarily make it to the mainstream bestseller lists.
