Now the French government is firing LIVE ROUNDS at carbon tax protesters

Governments are prepared to shoot to kill in order to impose carbon taxes on resisting populations.

Government elites are quite unsettled over the ongoing Paris yellow-vest protests against the “global warming” carbon taxes.

Word is out that thousands of jobs at Land Rover and Porsche–preferred car makes for government ministers–may be threatened by the public’s disdain for the carbon taxes.

London’s Independent newspaper has scrubbed its most downloaded article in its history–“Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past”

“Climate science” is an area of relentlessly shifting claims, predictions, and threats. Hundreds of bizarre, apocalyptic claims have been made by governments and government-supported scientists pursuing the catastrophic-manmade-global-warming-by-CO2 theory.

Now the innovative journalist James Delingpole reports that the most ludicrous “news” article in the history of London’s Independent newspaper–the March 2000 article with the headline “Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past”–has been “mysteriously erased” from the Independent’s online archives.

While worldwide snow cover varies from year to year, overall snow cover has been increasing over the past 10 winters.

LYSANDER SPOONER UNIVERSITY STUDIES MEXICO’S GLACIERS

January 1, 2019. Mexico City. Lysander Spooner University is the world’s foremost institution of higher learning investigating pan-governmental claim that manmade-global-warming-by-carbon-dioxide is destroying the Earth’s ecosystems. Trillions of dollars have been spent by governments and government-supporting NGOs to promote worldwide fear that the earth is experiencing or will soon experience environmental collapse due to the use of petroleum and coal products. These organizations generally promote a socialistic agenda which aims to essentially nationalize (or even globalize) the world’s energy industries and impose further taxes on the overtaxed people of the earth.
Since 2015, Lysander Spooner University has been investigating government claims that the glaciers in the northern Rockies are melting away due to manmade global warming. University researchers have discovered that the glaciers in Glacier National Park appear to have grown since 2009. This growth appears to have been especially strong since 2015.
Even as governments predict that ice in the Arctic is disappearing, there continue to be large numbers of glaciers thousands of miles to the south, including near the equator and Tropic of Cancer.
Government-supporting media have mostly ignored the presence of these glaciers in the tropics. To the extent that such tropical glaciers are mentioned in news reports, they are described as being in a state of imminent peril.

Dr. Roger Roots is currently in Mexico’s glacier country (essentially the highest volcanos east of Mexico City) in order to launch a systematic, periodic survey of the glaciers. Dr. Roots’ initial investigation will focus on getting a layout of the landscape for future reference.

“Climate science” papers are mostly about politics

by Roger I. Roots, J.D., Ph.D., founder of Lysander Spooner University

Many of my friends are true believers in the prevailing pan-government theory that manmade-global-warming-by-carbon-dioxide will soon cause the earth to melt down and all or most humans to fry and die on the surface.

Interestingly, they avoid actual scientific debate on the subject. The ‘debate,’ such as it is, is over politics and guilt. Almost all who ‘believe’ in the theory most earnestly want to see an end to ‘capitalism.’

The socialist writer Naomi Klein–who authored several bestsellers calling for the abolition of capitalism during the 1990s and 2000s–leaped onto the ‘global warming’ bandwagon with her book “This Changes Everything,” which (of course, again) called for the abolition of capitalism to “fix” the alleged global warming “crisis.”

A recent review of the most-read “scholarly” “science” articles of 2018 reveals that the ‘best-sellers’ were peer-reviewed papers which called for worldwide socialism with a small bit of ‘science’ language thrown in. For example, the most-read ‘climate science’ article of 2018 called for a “deep transformation based on a fundamental reorientation of human values, equity, behavior, institutions, economies, and technologies.”

Arctic sea ice is approaching normal levels

After decades of propaganda and trillions of dollars spent by governments to promote the view that Arctic snow and ice are melting, satellite images reveal that Arctic ice has been growing for eleven years.

As of January 3, 2019, ice in the Arctic is approaching the median for 1981-2010. See here.

Communist Castro lived as one of the world’s richest men while claiming to live on 900 pesos a month

Socialists like Bernie Sanders and Hugo Chavez often live lives of deception. But no one compared to Fidel Castro.

Castro claimed he made just 900 pesos ($43) a month and lived in a “fisherman’s hut” but he actually lived in secret palaces and had many secret wives, mistresses and children. He had his own private island, private pools and his own pet dolphins. Dozens of servants serviced his every whim.

Here is the New York Post’s expose on Castro’s secret lifestyle.

Glaciers Continue to Grow in Glacier National Park

By Dr. Roger Roots, J.D., Ph.D., Lysander Spooner University
East Glacier, Montana. September 9, 2018. Volunteer glacier researchers from Lysander Spooner University once again traveled to Glacier National Park (GNP) on September 8 and 9. This is the fourth straight year in which a delegation from the University investigated the government’s claims that the glaciers in GNP are melting away due to apocalyptic manmade global warming by carbon dioxide.

Agencies of the U.S. government publish various pamphlets, signs and websites which show pictures of GNP’s glaciers taken many years ago juxtaposed against more recent pictures of the glaciers appearing much diminished. The signs, films, flyers and pamphlets published by the National Park Service and U.S. Geological Survey all predict that GNP’s glaciers will melt away by either 2020 or 2030. (There is still a large diorama at the St. Mary Visitor Center which boldly suggests that manmade climate change will cause the Park’s glaciers to disappear by 2020—just a year and a half from now.)

A major flaw in the government’s ‘before’ and ‘after’ approach is the omission of precise calendar dates. Every Montanan knows that mountain glaciers grow for 9 months of the year and then melt for 3 months. Thus a picture of a glacier taken in June or July will always show the glacier much larger than will a photo taken in early September. Comparing one year (“circa 1952”) to another year (“2005’) can be highly manipulative. Only a year-by-year, date-by-date comparison of photos taken at the end of the melt season (generally around the second week of September) will establish whether a glacier is growing or shrinking.

This year (2018) it quickly became clear that the glaciers have grown substantially in recent years. A startling example is seen at the Jackson Glacier overlook on the Going-to-the-Sun Road. The government has erected a sign with two photos: (1) the Glacier in 1911; and (2) the Glacier in 2009. The display shows the Jackson Glacier melting away to perhaps 10 or 20 percent of its 1911 size. But visitors to the marker in 2018 are able to look up above in the distance and see that the Jackson Glacier has grown significantly since 2009. The Glacier’s growth may be as much as 30 or more percent since 2009.


Elsewhere in the Park there are indications that the government is quietly seeking to conceal some of its hysterical claims of the past. Last year (2017) our video of the trash cans at the Many Glacier Lodge went viral. The large metal trash cans behind the Lodge depicted the Grinnell Glacier shrinking away over the past century. One trash can bore an image of the Grinnell Glacier in 1909 while the can next to it showed the Grinnell Glacier in 2009—diminished to perhaps 20 percent of the size of the 1909 Glacier depicted on the first trash can. In September 2017 we were able to show thousands of Americans a video of the two trash cans next to a digital photograph of the Grinnell Glacier taken the day before. And it seemed clear that the Grinnell Glacier has grown slightly since 2009.

This year when our team arrived at the location of the trash cans, we found that the two cans have been removed! It appears that the National Park Service is trying to hide the fact that the glaciers are growing!

Lysander Spooner University is the only research institution challenging the government’s Glacier Park climate hysteria. Literally, no one else—not the local newspapers, not the think tanks, not the government-supported universities or even the Boy Scouts—are doing this vital work.

Please support Lysander Spooner University if your are able to do so.

Starving Venezuelans now digging up graves of past capitalism seeking riches

Just 25 years ago, Venezuela was the richest and healthiest society in all of Latin America. Then the people of Venezuela voted for socialism.

Now they struggle for daily survival.

Former doctors, lawyers, and even children now walk the streets as prostitutes. Men die in knife fights over dollar bills while standing in food lines. Local zoos have been invaded and had their exotic zoo animals eaten for food. Prisoners in Venezuelan prisons sometimes kill, cook, and eat fellow inmates.

Now the people of Venezuela are digging up old graves of Venezuelans who lived during more prosperous times, seeking jewelry. See here.

U.S. government–which has repeatedly been caught secretly subsidizing “news” media–launches investigation into Chinese relationship with AP

The Associated Press (AP) has partnered with Chinese government “news” agencies in order to operate within China.

Now a committee of the U.S. Congress is investigating. “We need to be certain that this MOU [memorandum of understanding between AP and Chinese “news”] is not an IOU,” [Congressman Brad] Sherman [D.-Ca.] told [Josh Rogin of the Washington Post]. “Xinhua uses its bureaus in the U.S. to collect intelligence for Beijing, so it’s common sense that a cooperation agreement with it and the AP should be scrutinized. We need full transparency.”

Of course every investigation into “mainstream news” sources has always found that many reporters are secretly paid by U.S. government officials and agencies.

Nicaraguan Government now RAIDING critical TV stations

MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) — The director of a TV station critical of President Daniel Ortega was accused Saturday of inciting terrorism after authorities raided and shut down the station’s office.

Nongovernmental media are increasingly threatened under the socialist regime.

The news director “appeared in court in the morning wearing a blue prisoner’s uniform and was formally accused of ‘provocation, proposition and conspiracy to commit terrorist acts,’ according to a court document.”

At least 325 people have been killed in recent protests, and the Nicaragua Center for Human Rights says some 565 people have been jailed. Thousands more have fled the country in self-imposed exile.
