This is perhaps the shortest post I’ll ever do. It simply asks a question.
While pondering, that I do rather too much, it occurred to me that AGW (Human Caused Warming) might not be the first nor even the most important manipulated and totally fake “issue” that sucked buckets of money out of Joe and Jane Public and might have been preceded by many other similar frauds.
The most obvious is the whole Ozone Hole “crisis” from which Dow Chemical (among others) made a bucket of money. An unproven (and computer fictional) failure of ozone based on a product with a patent about to expire.
So what other “issues” might be of the same ilk?
I’d suggest starting with anything that has a UN signature on it. Perhaps digging in to any other convenient and profitable correlations. UN Connections are likely a good avenue of exploration. Similarly any “odd” tendency for money to flow just about patent time…
So experss yourselves. What do YOU think might have been entirely “for effect” prior to AGW? Put on your sleuth or even your paranoid hat and speculate. Where else are the rats hiding? Hmmmm?
