The ‘illusion of truth’ can be a dangerous weapon in the hands of a propagandist like Joseph Goebbels (Credit: Getty Images)
IN order for the supposed man-made
global warming climate change ‘crisis’ to metastasise into the costly and ruinous scare that it has now become, it must be accompanied by a constant stream of catastrophic outcomes and grandiose predictions to create the illusion of truth.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels
global warming climate change propaganda also requires a steady supply of fanciful solutions, leaving the impression that man-made climate change is a forgone conclusion that must be ‘stopped’, whatever the cost.
“Repetition makes a fact seem more true, regardless of whether it is or not.”
“Our minds are prey to the illusion of truth effect because our instinct is to use short-cuts in judging how plausible something is.” – psychologist Tom Stafford
ONE such theorised solution to stop supposed man-made global warming and reinforce the illusion of truth is to build a ‘space lens’ to shield the earth from apparent dangerous sunlight…

WHEN will climate-theory-obsessed politicians and sycophant media finally call off their
global warming climate change jihad that’s punishing the poor without helping the planet?
WE were told we’d have more cyclones, not less.
WE were promised “permanent” drought, not record rains.
WE were promised less snow, not more.
WE were promised more “extreme weather”, not less.
WE were promised fewer crops, not record output.
WE were promised fewer polar bears, not more.
WE were promised more global warming, not a near twenty year warming “pause”.
POWER prices through the roof.
PENSIONERS unable to pay for their heating or cooling.
IT’S time to count the shocking price we’ve paid for listening to global warming scaremongers like Tim Flannery.
SEE now what their panic-making has inspired – global warming schemes that have hurt us infinitely more than any slight global warming could ever do.
DURING the height of the global warming scare around 2007, soon after Al Gore’s science fiction movie “An Inconvenient Truth” aired, (which was swiftly shot down as a “political fiction” by the British High Court’s, Judge Michael Burton who ruled that errors had arisen “in the context of alarmism and exaggeration”) Tim Flannery infamously claimed:
“SO, even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams and our river systems…” – Tim Flannery 2007
In 2004 Flannery said:
“I think there is a fair chance Perth will be the 21st century’s first ghost metropolis. It’s whole primary production is in dire straits and the eastern states are only 30 years behind.”
We are “one of the most physically vulnerable people on the Earth,” and “southern Australia is going to be impacted very severely and very detrimentally by global climate change.” We are going to experience “conditions not seen in 40 million years.”
In 2007 he said:
“…That’s because the soil is warmer because of global warming and the plants are under more stress and therefore using more moisture. So even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams and our river systems, and that’s a real worry for the people in the bush. If that trend continues then I think we’re going to have serious problems, particularly for irrigation.”
“The one-in-1000-years drought is, in fact, Australia’s manifestation of the global fingerprint of drought caused by climate change.”
In May 2007 he warned that:
“Brisbane and Adelaide – home to a combined total of three million people – could run out of water by year’s end;”
and that the country was facing
“the most extreme and the most dangerous situation arising from climate change facing any country in the world right now.”
In June 2007 he said:
“Over the past 50 years southern Australia has lost about 20 per cent of its rainfall, and one cause is almost certainly global warming. Similar losses have been experienced in eastern Australia, and although the science is less certain it is probable that global warming is behind these losses too. But by far the most dangerous trend is the decline in the flow of Australian rivers: it has fallen by around 70 per cent in recent decades, so dams no longer fill even when it does rain …
In Adelaide, Sydney and Brisbane, water supplies are so low they need desalinated water urgently, possibly in as little as 18 months.”
In 2008 he warned again that:
“The water problem is so severe for Adelaide that it may run out of water by early 2009.”
AND then the rains came, as they always do in the land of “droughts and flooding rains“…
BY December 2008 Adelaide’s reservoirs were 75% full, Perth’s 40%, Sydney’s 63%, and Brisbane’s reservoir’s were 46% full.
BY 2009 dams for Brisbane, Canberra and Sydney were filled to overflowing.
PRESENTLY Adelaide’s reservoirs are 57%, Perth’s 39%, Melbourne’s 59%, Sydney’s 77%, and Brisbane’s reservoir’s are 83% full.
MOTHBALLED DESALINISATION PLANTS
In 2005 Flannery wrote in “The Weather Makers“:
Australia’s east coast is no stranger to drought, but the dry spell that began in 1998 is different from anything that has gone before….The cause of the decline of rainfall on Australia’s east coast is thought to be a climate-change double whammy – the loss of winter rainfall and the prolongation of El Nino-like conditions.
The resulting water crisis here is potentially even more damaging than the one in the west … As of mid 2005 the situation remains critical… very little time to arrange alternative water sources such as large-scale desalination plants.
$12 BILLION worth of desalination plants built in South Australia, Queensland, NSW and Victoria have all been mothballed without producing a drop of water. All were built in preference to much cheaper dams, because of green bans and because warming alarmists claimed the rains would not return.
FIVE desal plants have been built in Australia. Only Perth’s is used.
COSTS to run each mothballed deal plant are estimated at between $500,000 to $1,000,000 per day, every day until contracts run out around 2030.
THIS is what Victoria’s mothballed desal plant is costing the taxpayer each and every year until, at least, 2030… Read the rest of this entry »

COLOURLESS, odourless, tasteless, non-reactive, trace gas and plant food ‘carbon dioxide’ – the miracle molecule that, according to ‘scientists’, causes these phenomena, amongst a million other things (see link 20) !
- Incredible shrinking sheep
- Boy Scout tornado deaths
- Lobster Cannibalism
- Longer days
- Shorter days
- Collapse of gingerbread houses in Sweden
- Surge in fatal shark attacks
- Bigger tuna fish
- Fish shrinkage
- Glacier grows (California)
- Glaciers on Snowden
- Longer days
- Shorter days
- Screwed-up love making
- The Sinking of The Titanic
- No more red-haired people
- Pear-shaped women
- Incontinent, impotent bald guys with extra hair growing from his toes
- A few other things caused by global warming…
AND now, according to ‘esteemed’ taxpayer funded climate ‘scientists’, carbon dioxide has the power to shift tectonic plates summoning deadly Volcanoes!
WOW! What a gas.
ALL of a sudden, taxing and demonising this essential trace gas that plants use as food to grow and create oxygen, makes a whole lotta sense! Not.
HUMOROUS observation via Ms. Donna on Twitter :
TAXPAYER funded ‘scientists’ should be studying the effects of Volcanoes on our climate, not the other way around!
The effect of volcanoes on climate
The relationship between volcanoes and climate is a very complex one. From reading the media one gets the impression that they are some sort of climatic wild card. They are used to explain the cooling after the Pinatubo eruption, or the Little Ice Age cooling as a detriment to the solar hypothesis. But they are also used to explain the warming leading to mass extinctions in the distant past.
Excellent read here via WUWT …
