I am sometimes accused of believing in and promoting “conspiracy theories.”

To this charge, I must plead guilty.

For a long time, I have warned of a massive conspiracy to persuade the American public, in fact the population of the entire world, that life as we know it is threatened by a phantom crisis. This conspiracy is so massive and bold it seeks literally to usher in a new age of global governance, even though there is no evidence to support the claims behind the imminent threat to the planet.

Nevertheless, most of the news media, most government institutions, most politicians of both parties, nearly all schools and universities – even most corporations – promote this conspiracy.

And, later this month, a United Nations global convention in Copenhagen aims to build upon the work of this conspiracy in the hopes of promoting unaccountable global governance – turning people in formerly free countries like the United States into little more than serfs far removed from their masters.

I speak, of course, of the widespread conspiracy and increasingly obvious fraud known as man-made, catastrophic climate change.

For years, we have been told that “scientists” have a reached a broad consensus that man’s activity on the planet, particularly through the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, is causing “global warming.”

Climate change? Sure – it happens four times a year. Get the bumper sticker that expresses your opinion about science hoax

It has never been true that such consensus exists – despite broad efforts at seduction, intimidation and coercion of scientists through the use of government grants, foundation support, academic appointments, peer pressure and, ultimately, blacklisting of those who don’t go along with the charade.

But recently, strong evidence of that intimidation and blacklisting of scientists has surfaced.

It came in the form of e-mails from prominent scientists from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia clearly trying to “shout down” those with opposing views. The e-mails show a willingness to manipulate data to make it fit the theory. What’s worse, a preliminary investigation of the e-mails shows those responsible have destroyed much of the original data so it can no longer be independently verified in light of the scandal.

Yes, I do believe in conspiracies.

And global-warming hysteria is a textbook example of how they work in the real world.

In order not to believe in conspiracies you would have to be naïve. You would have to believe there aren’t bad people in the world working in their own self-interest. You would have to believe that politicians and university professors and scientists are all incorruptible and above reproach.

Do you believe that?

Do you believe government always works in the best interest of people?

Or, do you believe that power can corrupt and absolute power can corrupt absolutely?

In my lifelong work as a journalist, I have found that when bad things happen, there is usually more than one person responsible.

Oftentimes, these people have actually “conspired” together – which literally means breathed together or planned the results.

Despite the “global-warming” propaganda barrage most Americans have endured for the last 20 years, I think the majority now see through the carbon smokescreen.

Nevertheless, the fix is still in.

Plans are being made to change your lifestyle to fit within the agenda of those promoting this pseudo-apocalyptic nightmare scenario.

These plans are on a fast track.

You will hear more about them next week from Copenhagen.

Still, for some reason, none dare call it conspiracy.

Yet, that’s what it is.

It’s happening right before your eyes.

So don’t be so quick to accept those “conspiracist” labels when they are cast about.

Sometimes, even the “paranoid” who claims “they’re after me” is right.

The “climate change” crowd really is after you. They’re after your money, your freedom and your life.
