Recently I was interviewed by Home of Solar Energy in my capacity as managing editor of Climate Change Fraud. While I don’t profess to know the answer to every question, I think it’s a good starting point for anyone interested in man-made global warming. It’s even recommended to those “on the fence” or a diehard climate change believer.
Daniel, my interviewer, was very professional and sent me an email with the questions listed. While we don’t agree on everything, he was very respectful and I look forward to future interactions with him. Enjoy and have a happy Father’s Day.
Home of Solar Energy:Hello Tom,
thanks for allowing me to ask you some questions, which I am sure are of great interest to the readers of Home of Solar Energy. Your website strongly suggests that the facts about Global Warming show it as a fraud.
When I first found your page, I was intrigued to see that someone takes a completely contrarian standpoint on Global Warming. Can you tell us about your website climatechangefraud.com and your view on Global Warming? Who are you guys? Are you scientists?
ClimateChangeFraud.com is a one-man show created and maintained by myself. I’m a freelance writer who does this site in his spare time.
Home of Solar Energy: I have the impression that climatechangefraud.com is more like a magazine where you publish reports made elsewhere, correct? Do you publish own research or new research finding on ClimateChangeFraud, too?
Tom: An online magazine would be a good description. I also publish articles sent to me by readers, as well as contributing my own stories after researching a certain topic that I believe needs exploring. Any new reports or findings are referenced back to the originating site.
Home of Solar Energy: Why are you doing this work? I find that mostly Climate Contrarians have their own agenda, like religious beliefs or are paid by the oil industry… what is your motivation to publish information and facts about Global warming?
Tom: I was growing increasingly weary by what I was reading in the mainstream media regarding man’s impact on the climate. It started to sound like eco-religion, a belief in something NOT proven by science, but by consensus. The belief in man-made global warming has more to do with worship of something invisible, i.e., God, than in something based in fact. In the last 100 years, global temperatures have increased by 1°C. This is based on ground surface stations, interpolation, and only in the last 30 years, satellite. No one knows for sure what’s even going on in the troposphere. You have to be able to replicate findings, which they are not doing with climate change research. Also, climate contrarian is a bit pejorative. I prefer climate skeptic.
Home of Solar Energy: How did you come about the idea that the so called facts about Global Warming are a fraudulent, as you call it?
Tom: As I said before, I did my own research and started with an open mind. I’m actually fairly liberal in my views and quickly discovered how political the science had become. That, sadly, is wrong. After months and months of reading, surfing, and cross-checking what I could find, I realized that an entire multi-billion dollar cottage industry had been built around the theory of man-made global warming. That was when I knew something was seriously amiss. Now it is a multi-trillion dollar industry. An enormous fraud is being perpetrated on the public, and it’s being spearheaded by politicians, some journalists, and activist scientists.
