A beacon of freedom and justice, America has always been an inspiration for the world’s citizens yearning for change and happiness. Today it appears as if the entire world is on fire and America is the only potential extinguisher. The core of the issue is energy. The fire is the terrorism exported by the Middle East oil producing nations, their South American proxies, and the spread of radical Islam based on the Hadith and caliphates. The world…not just America…is being held hostage by those using energy to finance evil. As we see today, while Israel is being attacked by Hamas and Gazans are living under Hamas dictatorship, Qatar, a small oil producing country, is openly financing Hamas against the only stable ally of the US in the Middle East, Israel, and instead of getting punished for financing terrorism, Qatar is receiving an $11 Billion arms deal form the US administration. This would have never been possible if Qatar was a country producing tomatoes instead of oil, which shows that the power of oil, and holding America hostage to its energy needs, is a threat to American’s independence and values.

Yet America appears to have no clear direction and progress towards the future, and an apparent weakness of policies that America’s enemies and freedom-haters around the global acknowledge and take advantage of.  This paper explores the Petro-Islamic Threat and proposes a solution to stabilize the Middle East with the help of our ally Israel by addressing the issues and working to solve energy ultimately defunding the Petro-Islamic Threat, and uniting people the world over with a common goal.

The Petro-Islamist Threat

Islam is the religion of an estimated 1.6 billion people. While it would not be fair to label all Muslims with political Islamism, it is a fact that most terrorist groups known today are Islamic.

There are conflicting interruptions of the Qur’an and its emphasis on violence and Jihad.  One school states expressly that the Qur’an and indeed the religion of Islam’s founder, the “prophet Mohammad,” express extreme violence.  By some estimates the Quran is said to contain over 100 verses supporting hatred and violence towards “infidels”

Another school of Islamic thinkers note that apparently, the Quran dictates that Muslims should not force non-Muslims to convert to Islam, as the verse 256 of the Chapter of the Cow reads: “There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of the religion.] The right course has become clear from the wrong”. Nonetheless, most Muslims take their religious teachings from the Hadith, which says exactly the opposite.

Let’s elaborate. The Hadith, as defined by the Encyclopedia Britannica,refers to “The record of the traditions or sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, revered and received as a major source of religious law and moral guidance.  A major source of the Hadith is a book written by Muhammad Al-Bukhari, a Muslim born in today’s Uzbekistan 300 years after Prophet Muhammad’s death. Nonetheless, he claims authority on what Muhammad taught, despite lacking any direct connection to him and his followers.

When examining the Hadiths by Al-Bukhari, teachings emerge encouraging Islamic supremacy over non-Muslims, killing them and taking their women and children as slaves, unless they convert to Islam, and seeking global domination over all countries and nations where they have to submit to a Muslim state or convert to Islam, as clearly dictated by several Hadiths.

Therefore, despite the Quran statements such as that of Younis, Verse 99: “And had your Lord willed, those on earth would have believed – all of them entirely. Then, [O Muhammad], would you compel the people in order that they become believers,” it seems that political Islam follows the contradicting doctrine of Hadith, and for almost 14 centuries. Global Jihad has never seemed to stop, but only temporarily subside, when Islamists are too weak to conquer other nations. And today, political Islam has its sights set on taking over Western society throughout Europe and the United States.

Statements made by all leaders of Islamist terror groups have unmistakably been clear, with statements like “We will make it to the White House”.

With such eminent danger and absurd ambitions, the West has provided political Islam and Jihadists with the ultimate tool of dominance. This tool is the revenue generated by the oil producing countries which is used to fund such efforts throughout the world and with Islamist and terror-supporting states holding America and the West hostage to their oil supplies. Islamist governments, such as Qatar, have been able to support terrorism and buy large shares of major American and Western corporations, property and media as they push for the adoption of local Sharia Law.

Sharia Law Compliant Financing has been approved by the United States Treasury department who has even conducted seminars on its operation and use. Much of this money has been used to further left wing agendas in the U.S. such as disinvestment in fossil fuel industries and massive investments in “green energy schemes” which are scientifically incapable of providing sufficient energy for America’s needs. A recent U.S. Senate (Minority) report outlines just how much money is being pumped into this anti-energy machinery.

With their long-term Islamist agenda of world-domination, the stage has been set for those Islamists-supporting regimes to compromise America’s way of life and even to enforce Islamism on it.

World’s Silent Energy Crisis

The current population of the United States is approximately 317,000,000.  The current worldwide population is currently 7.1 billion.  Thus, the United States represents 4.5% of the world population, yet consumes over 25% of annual energy worldwide.  Current fossil fuel supplies of oil, coal, and natural gas are being consumed virtually at capacity.  As is evident, the fossil fuel supply is not capable of providing worldwide energy requirements as the developing countries attempt to improve their population’s standard of living to levels enjoyed by the West, notwithstanding the fact that fossil fuels are finite and no matter what we do, future generations will not have access to them as they are being rapidly depleted.

Although some incremental gains in supply can be obtained from the combination of “currently discussed renewable and green energy,” sources, the net effect is only marginal on the bottom line impact. This means that America, and, in fact the world, will remain held at the will of oil producers, most of whom are Islamist countries or their South American proxies, with some openly supporting terrorism like Qatar for example.

Albert Einstein established a fundamental law of physics; that energy and mass can neither be created nor destroyed but mass can be converted to energy and vice versa.  Einstein’s “special theory of relativity,” E=MC², means since there is mass all around us, there is energy all around us.  We must master the science of converting mass to energy efficiently, safely, and economically.

In the late 1970s this issue was forecasted, properly defined, and discussed rigorously in the energy literature.  In 1980, Washington State U. S. Representative Mike McCormack introduced a bill requiring the Federal U. S. Government to embark on a program to correctly solve energy through the research and development of fusion energy.  This bill was overwhelmingly passed in Congress and signed as the Magnetic Fusion Engineering Act by President Carter in October 1980. The goal was to have controlled fusion demonstration reactors working by the mid-1990s and at least one such reactor providing power to the Nation’s power grid by early 2000, followed by rapid commercialization.

Nonetheless, this effort was never properly funded and managed purely due to political reasons. Virtually all high energy physics projects in the United States have been disbanded over the last 20 years.  A prime example was the Superconductor Collider Center in Texas which was halted after ground breaking and a billion dollars spent on componentswhich were subsequently sold overseas and implemented by the Swiss in their massive high energy particle accelerator project known as The Large Hadron Collider.

This, again, means that America remains dependent on traditional sources of energy mostly produced by the very countries that want to take over America and the West. And this also means that America, the West in general and the world, won’t be able to sustain economic growth and development when energy produced worldwide falls below the demands created by population growth and industrialization of third world nations.  

Still, today, there is no serious fusion energy development happening in the United States,with the exception of the National Ignition Facility at Lawrence Livermore Labs.

In fact, the South Koreans, Chinese, Japanese, Russians, and Europeans are far ahead of the United States in their domestic fusion development programs. The United States has put most of its fusion eggs in the ITER basket which in an international project managed by the IAEA under the UNand which the U.S. is only a 9% partner. ITER resulted from an ill informed decision made by the Reagan administration in 1985 having been stimulated by Russia.  The development of fusion technology is not a luxury by any means. America cannot be spending blood and treasure to fight Islamic terrorism worldwide just to be given to the very countries that produce it, like Qatar, because they control the sources of energy America depends on.

Further, America will not be in any position of leadership in the energy field– nor in any fields built on energy, which are plenty—if other countries take the lead in fusion technology.

In other words, he who controls energy controls the world. And right now, America does not control energy; those who seek America’s demise and the fundamental Islamaization of the world do. And those pioneering the promising fusion technology are not just America’s friends, but also the undemocratic least-predictable states; for example the Russians and the Chinese.

Israel, America’s Trusted Friend

There are only two countries in the world with the correct moral values and character to trust with this resource: the United States and Israel.

Israel has the brains, innovation and determination required to jointly lead the fusion technology with the United Sates. The United States has a scientific base of experience and knowledge in the field and the financial and infrastructure resources to help develop it.

Further, Israel has historically exhibited the most important factor in handling energy, responsibility. While Israel has mastered nuclear energy for decades in its weapons program, amid the most hostile environment any country could face, Israel has never had a confirmed nuclear accident, nor had it ever had the safety of its nuclear reactors compromised by the many wars launched on it by its neighbors.  It should be pointed out, however, that Hamas targeted the Dimona nuclear facility in July, 2014 by an unsuccessful rocket attack.

In addition, Israel never chose or even thought to use nuclear energy resources at war except as a means of deterrent, unlike Iran which is starving its people for a nuclear program openly intended for hostile purposes.

In other words, since fusion is the promising future of energy, who else to trust to handle it more than America and Israel?

Myths of the Sustainability Movement

 Agenda 21 is a goal promulgated by the UN to result in a bio-diversity system capable of being sustained by renewable and “green energy” sources.  Scientific analysis has shown that renewable and green energy sources can only sustain a world population of about 350 million at a standard of living comparable to the United States today.

Thus, the Sustainability Movement and Agenda 21 force a significant reduction and stabilization of world population in polar opposition to the projected world population of 2050 assuming adequate energy and agriculture resources. The United States Census Bureau now projects 2050 world population to exceed 9 billion.  The UN Agenda 21 is clearly a Malthusian instrument to vastly reduce worldwide population and destroy America as the last remaining superpower.

The green movement in the United States has replaced education in the hard sciences with social responsibility.  The United States ranked number one in the world in 8th grade science and mathematics education 40 years ago.  Today it is ranked 36th.In the public school systems today the hard sciences have been replaced with green social responsibility doctrine.

A corrupt and powerful green lobby has spread throughout the country which is siphoning billions of dollars out of the country’s treasury and into the hands of its organizers, leaders and corporate partners.  Meanwhile, the public is being misled into a sense of false security that all of our energy needs can be met through green and renewable energy sources.  The scientifically incorrect concept of anthropogenic global warming being caused by man is a primary driving force creating tremendous corrupt investment in the green energy industries. Ultimately, this scheme will bring America to its knees.  At that point, the country will be ripe for Islamic domination.

Decline of America as the World’s Preeminent Superpower and Moral Authority

Over the last 30 years the United States has steadily declined as the world’s superpower as measured by military superiority, economic prosperity, responsible financial management of the state with limited debt, leadership in education, and its commitment to core values of freedom and the value of the individual.  The societal emphasis on entertainment over education has taken its effect on the younger generation who are losing touch with America’s past values and glory.  The hard sciences and math skills of grade school and high school children are now far behind other developing nations yet the economies in all developed countries are becoming increasingly based on science and technology.  This trend is not sustainable and the rapid decline of the United States is inevitable unless this trend is quickly reversed.

Defusing the Petro-Islamist Threat

As discussed earlier, political Islam and the country’s most supportive of it are in control of the larger part of the world’s energy resources. With their intentions being clear and dictated by Hadith’s teachings, to control the West, and the World, America’s dependency on those for its oil makes it a willing hostage to Islamism.

The solution to America’s self-chosen empowerment of Islamism is to proclaim that the U.S. and Israel will lead the way to correctly solve energy within 20 years through fusion technology, thereby cutting off the massive amounts of money to the Middle East’s oil producing countries which directly serves their long-term scheme of controlling America and the West, which can be seen with them literally controlling huge amounts of US and European economies.

The intentions to solve the world’s energy problems must be made by a credible party such as the United States in scientific and management partnership with Israel and private sector funders, should be publicly stated as soon as possible so that petro-monies currently being given to Islamists terror-supporting governments are better invested for their society’s future, and not squandered by their leaders and on weapons development and the support of international terrorism.

As this is being done, American and their Western allies must strategically recognize the threat of petro-Islamist control of the West.

Further, the American establishment, education system, media and public must be educated on the history and intentions of Islamic geopolitical conquests.  A strong and robust effort must be launched to call for the reformation of Islam worldwide consistent with the value of life above conquest.

Furthermore, America should follow Israel’s model of handling its Islamic surroundings and even citizens; by not choosing to make enemies of those and in fact welcome Islamist thinkers who consider reform of Islamist ideology. For example, a re-studying of the terrorist and supremacist ideologies of Hadith must be encouraged and even financed.

Neutralizing the Sustainable Energy Illusions

As mentioned earlier, the “green sustainable energy ”rhetoric is an illusion rather than a solution, simply because, the world’s population is expected to reach 9 billion by the year 2050, and at the current rates of provision  that the sustainable energy resources generate, they simply cannot supply worldwide demand based on projected population and third world industrialization.

This gap of provision must be made scientifically clear to the world through an authoritative academic study using the proper science and mathematical framework. Such a study must be conducted by an Israeli university free from the basis associated with American universities resulting from their funding sources; i.e., petro-Islamists and pro global warming advocates.

A Matter of Humanity’s Survival

All people have an inalienable God given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness through ever increasing standards of living. These values could not be sustained if the world’s population growth curve remains far higher than the finite energy resources and the static energy production.

Such a gap between the two would eventually create a whole segment of world’s population living beyond humane conditions of today because of lack of energy.

Such a situation will result in those not having proper food, health care or education, and eventually would lead to a reduction of the world’s population.

Once population reduction is established to be an unacceptable option, the energy requirements to support such a population with an increased level of individual lifestyles must be defined as projected demand.  Energy sources must be defined and projected as supply.  The difference between demand and supply must be calculated and openly discussed.  The challenge must be issued to create a new energy source capable of meeting the demand.  And the need to find a comprehensive, effective and feasible solution must be established.

The One Single Solution to the Global Energy Crisis

The solution to energy is provided by the simple equation E=MC².

There are two known practical methods to execute that formula:  The first is fission atomic power, and the second is the nuclear fusion, which has to essentially be achieved within the next decade as the next quantum breakthrough in nuclear power.

Controlled nuclear fusion produces 1,000 times more energy per gram of mass than fission. Even more, fusion is far safer than fission as it does not produce long lasting radioactive waste or use fissile material sought after by terrorists and black market profiteers.

In addition, a fusion reactor can never go critical, melt down, or explode in a nuclear chain reaction.  Indeed, fusion is the only realistic solution.  As a matter of science there is none other.

Fusion, a Matter of Political Will

Fusion is not a new concept. In fact, the United States announced its intentions to develop and commercialize this technology in 1980 through the Magnetic Fusion Energy Engineering Act signed by President Carter. Nonetheless, funding was never made available for the act was and the project never effectively managed. Needless to say, such a project requires strong management and national political will.

The political will required for the fusion conquest must be of the same determination, visibility and stature of the NASA moon landing program, and serious military-like management of the World War II Manhattan project which led to the development of the atomic bomb.

In both examples above, America was serious about sustaining a leading role and a noble model for humanity. For example, the development of the atomic bomb resulted in ending WWII and saving many lives that could have been lost if the war lingered further.

Today, America sits at no less critical grounds with energy. If America fails to solve the world’s energy crisis it will lose its role as a global leader and the Islamist terror-supporting states will eventually take over Western economies and way of life.

And even worse, the rest of the world’s population would be expelled out of modern civilization by the lack of energy.

Therefore, America & Israel must pursue and commitment to develop fusion energy as its next pathway to greatness by providing a service to humanity, improving lives and eliminating Islamists’ threats.

In 1980 Israel’s Minister of Science and Energy, Professor Yuval Ne’eman realized the ever present danger’s Israel faced from its neighbors and Israel’s need to develop a long term economy based on advanced science and technology.  In 1980 Professor Ne’eman urged the Knesset to approve a domestic fusion development program in Israel leading to the successful demonstration and commercialization of fusion power.  However because Israel was a new nation, only 32 years old and financially strapped and because of concerns Israel had about the programs impact on its relationship with the United States, Prime Minister Begin ultimately rejected this plan.  Dr. Shalom Eliezer, a leading Israeli fusion scientist who worked for Professor Ne’eman and author of “The Fourth State of Matter; An Introduction to Plasma Science personally recounted this story to this author, Tomer Tamarkin, in a video interview in Rehovot Israel on December 12, 2012.

And while the world prospers on economy, education and technology all made available by the generous supply of fusion technology, America, Israel, and their private enterprise partners will own the fusion energy reactor intellectual property, scientific knowhow, technology and manufacturing infrastructure.

America with Israel’s help will revive its economy based on manufacturing and/or licensing the fusion technology and delivering it around the world.  This has hundreds of trillions of dollars in revenue potential over the next century.

We cannot make the mistake of outsourcing our bread and butter to the developing nations but can and will sell these nations the products necessary for them to thrive on a fair, just and equitable basis.

Such a project must be clamored for by the people, funded by the private sector; it is the leaders and the decision-makers in America and Israel who must facilitate it. These leaders and politicians are in their positions to serve the citizens who elected them.  Therefore, the American and Israeli public must be aware of the importance and significance of this project, and it must be a national patriotic agenda that average citizens would demand from their leaders, no less than other significant issues such as terrorism, health care and education.  But the actual work must be done by the private sector, supported by the governments with protection, favorable tax incentives, favorable regulatory climates concerning health and safety considerations applicable to high energy physics research facilities, and the favorable treatment of IP given the private sector involvement and the collateral issues of national safety concerns based on the imperative of abundant energy.

Further, this agenda must be combined with the demand of a manageable action plan, transparency, and results coupling America, Israel, private industry and philanthropic funding.

As an undergraduate physics major and applied math & chemistry minor, Mr. Tamarkin has been involved in high technology based business since the mid-1970s.  In 1985 Mr. Tamarkin became involved with the electrical utility industry in the capacity as president of a firm manufacturing pollution abatement control systems used in electrostatic precipitators and scrubbers.  Later Mr. Tamarkin became Senior Vice President and General Manager of Datamatic who developed data acquisition software systems for utility companies.  In 1990 he founded the Tamar Corporation which developed the first utility “smart meters” for the electrical, gas and water utility industry.  In 1995 he formed USCL Corporation and has remained as President.  USCL is responsible for much early development in the utility smart metering fields with emphasis on the delivery of real time energy information and consumption directly to the consumer.  http://www.usclcorp.com  Since 2001 Mr. Tamarkin has been advocating that fusion power needs to be brought to the people of the world as the only long term energy solution.  He is the co-founder of Fusion4Freeedom at http://www.fusion4freedom.us

    This is a well written article that does properly summarize petro terrorism and the need to establish an independent controllable energy source. It starts to lose credence when you state the USA to be one of the 2 only morally stable goverments to be in charge of such power. Do I need to remind you of who first unleashed the atom bomb? Or that it wasnt aimed at a military target despite the knoledge of how destructive it was? Are there seriously no other countries on this earth that does not have what it takes to be responsible? There is also the well known fact of American backed “terrorism”, regime change, or political meddling so as to remain on top in not the most moral ways as well has how alot of the meddling normally backfires along the way. Then there’s the statement that green energy is in no way a solution, you base this on current green projects that are pretty much prototypes that could lead to tech that would provide like the fusion tech you propose that is as difficult to achieve as well.

    You also ignore that petro terrorism has other factors that can neutralize it such as majority opposition of a western population to a minority backed ideology, invasion would lead to joint resistance of divided western powers. There also seems to be an underling bias in regards to religion and national “rights”. An example would be words such as god given rights, which the opposition also uses, and the statement that only 2 nations can be allowed to exploit such power, one of which you belong to.

      There is no question what so ever that the use of the A bomb in World War II ended the war and there is no question what so ever that the Japanese killed millions and millions of people (as did the Soviets and others.) The combined human loss of life in both Nagasaki and Hiroshima was well under 5% of people killed by the Japanese alone. By definition this was a very moral decision by America although I am sure the point will be debated out of context. As to the issue of green energy, the figures and links are correct. I would refer folks to the science section on http://www.fusion4freedom.us and the first section thereunder titled “Why Fusion is the Only Realistic Solution.” Solar, wind, hydro, geo-thermal, tidal, can only supply 4% of worldwide energy demand of 2050 based on 9 billion people with an equalized standard of living based on energy use in the West today.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      With respect to the use of the atom bomb, only in the U.S. has there been any agonized second-guessing about the decision. As far as Japan’s Chinese, Korean, Filipino and Vietnamese neighbors are concerned, the Japanese got what they deserved.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    First, a historical note. While Einstein is properly credited for equating matter and energy, I believe, unless anyone can correct me, that fusion itself was discovered by Edward Teller, who was researching the origin of the chemical elements and came upon fusion as the process for building elements heavier than hydrogen. Teller’s friend Hans Bethe then proved that the fusion of hydrogen into helium generates the production of energy in stars, for which he won a Nobel Prize. Both Teller and Bethe were refugees from the Nazis.

    With respect to the fusion project, I feel that Israel can go it alone in doing the preliminary theoretical and engineering work to get it off the ground. I do not trust the U.S. government to continue onward with the heavy financial and industrial lifting. Accordingly, I feel that American support should come from the private sector, just as space travel is being privatized. If the profits are there, the investors will come, and it will be far from the first time that Israeli advanced technology enterprises have merged with or been acquired by large foreign corporations.

      Norman_In_New_York, Albert Einstein expressed the relationship between matter and energy in his special theory of relativity as E=MC^2. He did not specify what process could be used in the transformation. Obviously the “holly grail” is matter anti-matter annihilation which would produce the 10^16th Joules. However very hard to do on Earth on an scale!

      With regard to fusion of light elements and its ability to serve as an energy source was first predicted by Atkinson & Houtermans in 1929 in a groundbreaking paper published in Berlin. In 1939, Hans Bethe showed how fusion powers the sun and stars and received the 1967 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work. [ https://www.google.com/#q=1967+Nobel+prize+in+physics ] In 1942, American physicist Dr. Edward Teller had called for academic discussions on peacetime uses of fusion energy before the Los Alamos lab was operational. Then in 1950, Russian physicists Andrei Sakharov and Igor Tamm collaborated – leading to the early concepts of magnetic confinement fusion and the tokomak, based on a letter sent to the Soviet leadership by an army sergeant named Oleg Lavrentyev. I wrote a series of 8 articles for non scientists on fusion with the Hollywood entertainer, Pat Boone. Article number 6 covers this history and is posted at: http://fusion4freedom.us/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/6e1.pdf

      Dr. Einstein proposed the Special Theory of Relativity which is expresses as E=MC^2. That provides the ration of mass and energy in a conversion from one form to another. Dr. Einstein did not propose the process by which it could be done; i.e. fission, fusion or mater anti-mater annihilation

    “The scientifically incorrect concept of anthropogenic global warming….” Sir, I’ll take NASA scientists who have done the studies to show this is a correct idea such as Dr. James Hansen ( a fan of nuclear power) over you. What studies have you done on the question to show otherwise? Other than that solar and wind power are good too, along with better battery storage technology. Fusion may indeed have been allowed to die out after the 1980’s by the very same people who favor the fossil fuel industry, and hate solar, wind and better battery storage as well. The good thing about these three “soft” renewable technologies is they can be set up by most anyone to save on energy usage, and in Israel they used to be used with great effect in hot water generation. Therefore, photovoltaics, wind and battery storage should be a cinch within that country, and a boon to its balance of trade. They might also liberate other nations from the grip of the energy cartel.

      1. Here is our well developed tutorial on AGW. And I have a wealth of studies and materials on the subject I am willing to direct people who are interested in to. http://fusion4freedom.us/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Anthropogenic%20Global%20Warming%20-%20The%20Science,%20Climate%20History,%20and%20Politics%20-%20a%20Tutorial%20V5%20copy%20(2).pdf

      2. Solar, wind, tidal, geo-thermal, etc., can only supply less than 4% of total worldwide 2060 demand. Go to the http://www.fusion4freedom.us science section and look for Why Fusion is the only Realistic Solution. Read the opening paragraphs and then scan down for the first three papers to learn about the issue of energy flux density. Then note the fourth paper is an entire book by David MacKay in the UK which analysis every conceivable known alternative except fusion because fusion has yet to de developed in a controlled environment. The MacKay book shows what I state above as being accurate. Solar has its place in rural courtiers with no developed electricity grid. But the costs associated with solar out weigh any positive benefits except in countries like the United States where it is heavily subsidized through the highly corrupt green energy lobby.

      • TigLy

        You still have not shown anyone your studies to refute those of Dr. Hansen, Muller of U Cal at Berkeley, and Dr. Michael Mann of U Penn. You mention David MacKay; he implicitly admits to and shows the global warming trend through the use of fossil fuels since industrialization took root within the UK and USA in circa 1800 (see http://www.withouthotair.com/c1/page_11.shtml) “Climate modelling is difficult and is dogged by uncertainties. But uncertainty about exactly how the climate will respond to extra greenhouse gases is no justification for inaction. If you were riding a fast-moving motorcycle in fog near a cliff-edge, and you didn’t have a good map of the

        cliff, would the lack of a map justify not slowing the bike down?….” Dr. MacKay has not studied this phenomenon unlike the other scientists. Dr. Mueller is especially noteworthy since he was a leading AGW denier until he did a study sponsored by none other than the Koch Brothers leading climate change deniers/fossil fuel advocates. He, and a team of scientists did all the field tests, plus used data going back to Thomas Jefferson to reach his conclusions that Earth’s climate is changing, and being changed by human burning of CO2 generating products.

        Concerning fusion, I would be all for it but the science just has not been moving along fast enough for our planet’s environment to wait. I suspect that just like wind, solar and other “soft type” energies it would break the monopolistic nature of power
        generation. I am all for the money for it. Just, I do not accept such nonsense that the solar and wind industry is overwhelming Washington D.C., and the state capitals of the U.S. The contrary is true. Powerful lobbies such as ALEC, Koch Industries, and the fossil fuel bunch have been doing all they can in such states as Oklahoma and Arizona to keep solar panels off of home roofs. Fortunately, there has been a backlash and people throughout the political spectrum from liberal to real conservative have fought against this such as former Congressman Barry Goldwater Jr. a diehard traditional GOP member.

Please provide your page by page. line by line rebuttals of our tutorial. http://fusion4freedom.us/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Anthropogenic%20Global%20Warming%20-%20The%20Science,%20Climate%20History,%20and%20Politics%20-%20a%20Tutorial%20V5%20copy%20(2).pdf

          • TigLy

            Is this your scientific study of the climate change issue like Dr. Hansen’s or Dr. Mueller’s-or just “refutations/denials”? Dr. Hansen’s more popularized book is called “Storms of My Grandchildren” published in 2009. To date there has not been any real climate studies showing different general conclusions from his, just brick bats and attempts to distort his research.

            P.S. I never claimed to be a scientist. Still, that does not mean I have to accept claims from people who have not done the type of long term scientific climate research as the three people I have mentioned thus far. I am not convinced you have. Therefore, the onus is on you to do the environmental studies as the people I mentioned have, not mine to refute your denial.

            As to fusion, the world needs to make changes now, and clean up its power generation. Fusion does not seem to be ready. This is just stalling and keeping us away from solar and wind, etc. which are readily available technologically in Israel, and the United States, and many other countries for the taking. This is the most immediate answer to diminishing the petro-terror problem, the coming peak oil shock, and the world’s climate and oceans becoming more lethal.

            Again David MacKay, whom you quote actually is open, and not denying of climate science either. I notice you have not mentioned my quote from his online book. It shows MacKay does not agree with you either on the human causes of global warming.

        • jhertzli

          The science is settled: Most climate scientists think AGW is occurring and most think the effects are not worth the hysteria.

  • The Bobcat

    I thought this was interesting until it denied AGW. That’s just absurd. Sure, the whole “green energy” thing is overblown (fusion/fission is better), but global warming is happening. Scientists are basically universal on this. Lost credibility there.

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Is it happening? I don’t know where you live, but the winter I experienced was the coldest in 100 years and I haven’t experienced a heat wave this summer. So who am I supposed to believe, the experts whose livelihoods depend on politically motivated grant money or my own lying eyes?

      • TigLy

        You should believe the scientists. The weather is cooler because there are cycles within overall climate trends. Right now we are in the La Nina cooler than normal cycle. I’ll take NASA scientists over petrochemical lobbyists who try to confuse the public on the subject. Overall temperatures have risen over the last hundred years or so.

        • Mr. Idaho

          You are missing the point of Tamarkin’s article, in that fusion is the only reasonable alternative to current fossil fuel / fission. That was the subject. A tangential argument of AGW is just that, tangential.

          • http://www.tomtamarkin.com/ Tomer D. Tamarkin

            It is tangential and indeed fusion takes the AGW argument off the serious discussion table in terms of the anthropogenic nature of climate change. However I chose to incorporate AGW because of its political nature and the fact that it has been used as the driver to push “green and renewable” solutions which simply are not capable of supporting the energy needs of 9 billion people. This has its early origins from the UN Rio Conference and became codified in the Agenda 21 platform and related UN “Sustainability Movement” The politics have made their way to the American government were the U. S. EPA signed a MOU with the UNEP on climate change and energy reduction goals in America as an example. Fusion removes this entire specter. However to be clear, we have 10 years of solid science to do to demonstrate a sustained net energy reaction greater than 10 in a controlled environment and another 5 to 10 years to build a demonstrable fusion reactor driving a power plant on the grid. And that assumes minimum intervention by greenie demonstrators, protesters, lawyers and OSHA like regulators who make the study of high energy experimental science difficult and time consuming due to red tape delays after delays.

          • TigLy

            I agree with fusion research too. Still, Mr. Tamarkin who knows better keeps up this anti-climate-science nonsense that makes him come off as less than credible to scientifically oriented readers. He cites sources like MacKay to support his position when that writer argues the opposite. Also, his distortions of the “green lobbies” role in U.S. politics, and downplaying of the role solar, wind, and battery storage can do to help with our issues with OPEC is equally fallacious. Fusion yes. Nonsense against science no.

            • http://www.tomtamarkin.com/ Tomer D. Tamarkin

              MacKay was cited because you provides a detailed description of the various “renewable” and “Green” approaches and shows their efficiencies and the vast area of land needed to implement them at the grid level. n MacKay was not cited for his position on AGW. We were kind enough to post his entire book on line as a PDF for anyone who wants it. he mentions fusion in passing only to the extent that it has not been developed. Here is the link to his book: http://fusion4freedom.us/pdfs/SustainEbook.pdf

              • TigLy

                Exactly, fusion is not developed. It needs research, so in the meantime we have the option of some form of fission for the entire world which is not a secure and safe source of power, but it might eliminate a good portion of the fossil fuel and OPEC economic and political power. Or we can try to build on what we have with solar, wind, energy saving technology, and better battery storage. Here’s a partial link to a Scientific American article published in part by a civil engineering professor from Stanford University named Mark Z. Jacobson: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/a-path-to-sustainable-energy-by-2030/. It talks of how we can have a nearly or totally renewable energy future by 2030 if we will it. My point: let’s not bash good science and technological innovation. We have to try new technology including fusion research to get fusion power, solar, wind, energy savings, improved battery storage and the like because we have a triple crisis of limited traditional energy sources, terrorism, and environmental degradation.

        • Norman_In_New_York

          This past winter was no mere “cooler than normal cycle.” The Great Lakes were completely covered with ice for the first time in nearly a century and the Arctic ice cap expanded by 67%. As for the climate change promoters, when they pay my heating bills instead of trying to pick my pocket, I will have a more benevolent attitude toward them.

          • TigLy

            It was colder, because we still have weather which varies. The overall trend of temperatures have been upward, and your heating bills are greater due fossil fuel industry pickpockets including OPEC, not NASA scientists. Those NASA people are the same ones that gave us the manned lunar landings, space stations, and unmanned interplanetary probes. I think they know how to do real science including atmospherics, chemistry and physics. At least their accomplishments of the last 50 years makes them credible, compared to the shoddy fossil fuel industry that puts out this no climate change nonsense, plus other untruths about oil spills…. P.S. if you do not believe NASA there is still its sometime partner and rival The Russian Academy of Sciences, the Israel Academy of Science and The Humanities, Islamic World Academy of Sciences, (notice the Israeli-Islamic conspiracy!) German Academy of Natural Sciences Leopoldina, Royal Astronomical Society UK, etc.(see http://opr.ca.gov/s_listoforganizations.php

      Scientists are far from universal on this. Go through out posted tutorial and with specific rejection or acceptance point by point, provide your rebuttals based on science; not emotion. http://fusion4freedom.us/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/Anthropogenic%20Global%20Warming%20-%20The%20Science,%20Climate%20History,%20and%20Politics%20-%20a%20Tutorial%20V5%20copy%20(2).pdf

      • TigLy

        97% of scientists agree on human burning of fossil fuels being the main cause of global warming leading to climate change. (See climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/, and a list of different countries’ science societies that agree that human fossil fuel activity is responsible: http://opr.ca.gov/s_listoforganizations.php)
        That so many countries and societies that do not necessarily like each other agree on the issue shows a conspiracy among scientists is unlikely. I’ll take NASA scientists that have been involved in years of planetary studies, and technological development over the skeptic/deniers who have not done the field tests on our planet’s climate.

        • http://www.tomtamarkin.com/ Tomer D. Tamarkin

          The assertion that 97% of scientists believe that climate change is a man-made, urgent problem is a fiction. The
          so-called consensus comes from a handful of surveys and abstract-counting exercises that have been contradicted by more reliable research. Read the entire history of this false claim at: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303480304579578462813553136

          • TigLy

            I’ll take some nerdy NASA scientists over WSJ.com editorials/news articles by “journalists”. NASA does atmospheric science, space, planetary exploration-research, and statistics including percentages with great mathematical ability. The WSJ understands the science of pen, ink, typesetting, and Microsoft Word as well as political spin.

    • cba

      The climate goes through cycles (always has done, always will do).

      30 years ago the fear was of a new Ice Age. In recent years there was a warming trend.

      The question is, whether an increase in the average carbon dioxide concentration in the air from around 0.032 percent 60 years ago to 0.039 percent now is what caused that warming trend.

      • Guest

        See graph below. And NASA has reversed itself on this as well as their position on the “hottest year” since 1900. For this reason many AGW advocates now find themselves using the phrase “climate change” opposed to “Global Warming.” The Co-founder of the American cable TV Weather Channel who left the organization calls it weather.

        • TigLy

          NASA has explained that the CO2 has gone into the oceans thus acidifying the waters, and harming life on the coral reefs of the world. The oceans are slightly warmer too. Also, La Nina is the current or cool weather trend. Still, temperatures have remained steady, but in aggregate have not declined since 1998. NASA has not backed away from their research on climate change from global warming, while those who are really shills for the multibillion dollar oil industry that indirectly funds terrorism argue that the science is in doubt, or corrupt without showing anything but denial of real science and history.

    Regarding the concept of AGW or Anthropogenic Global Warming, I wrote the following in the preface to the “Who Killed Fusion” article in 2011. It stands today regardless of ones position on AGW:

    “…In December of 2009, an international movement took shape in Copenhagen, Denmark to make the concept of Cap and Trade an international program. The United States and other countries agreed to ”donate” $100 billion per year by 2020 to less developed countries to force the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by the industrialized countries.

    Is this the best use of our money? Absolutely not. The strong and robust debate in the scientific community concerning the cause and effect relationship of climate change and man is inconclusive at best, and politically driven by a divergent set of rogue players at worst.

    The preferred use of the enormous amounts of money being dissipated in climate change abatement is the direct and immediate investment in science and technology that will simply replace fossil fuels and nuclear fission. That science and technology leads to fusion power. Under these conditions, climate change caused by man is a moot point and removed from serious discussion. Mankind will then have the benefit of unlimited, inexpensive energy, potable water, and plentiful food for eternity…”

    on Climate Change: Empirical Evidence to Consider Before Taking Regulatory
    Action and Implementing Economic Policies” September 4, 2014
    Today U.S. Environment and Public Works Committee
    Republicans released a report entitled, “Critical Thinking on Climate
    Change: Empirical Evidence to Consider Before Taking Regulatory Action and
    Implementing Economic Policies.”

    Today’s report is an update to the July 2013 EPW Republicans’ report, which
    provides the opportunity for critical analysis of climate science and expert
    testimony provided to Congress. The report now includes updated empirical
    evidence regarding risks that have been highlighted in the public forum
    concerning climatic changes, the impacts of climate regulations on the European
    countries that have adopted restrictive policies, and a review of how empirical
    evidence is now stacking up to past predictions, recent claims, and modeled
    scenarios.

    The report provides an opportunity to consider the underlying science and
    impacts of looming policy decisions in light of recent news that Australia has
    withdrawn their carbon tax, China and India are not expected to attend the
    upcoming UN summit conference in New York City, and only 11 of the 144 original
    parties to the Kyoto Protocol have thus far signed an extension.

    Important facts were viewed as critical to include or otherwise update in
    the report. Influential testimony has been provided to Congress on the
    disastrous impacts climate regulations have had on Spain, the United Kingdom,
    Germany, and Italy. Beyond the negative economic and human impacts that are
    discussed is additional scientific information. Key information included in the
    updated report:

    • Considerations of the benefits of CO2

    • Wildfire and forestry management issues

    • Polar Bear populations

    • Inaccuracies in the Obama Administration’s National Climate Assessment

    • Updated data on extreme weather events

    • Economic and energy poverty impacts in European countries that adopted
    climate policies http://www.epw.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Files.View&FileStore_id=3f33b3c9-a28b-4f6c-a663-50c7d02fda24

All 31,000+ scientists signed a petition supporting the paper. We have also posted the link to each and every one of the signatures which have been verified under audit and submitted to the United States Senate and other agencies in support of testimony under oath of penalty for perjury. Here is the Abstract:

    A review of the research literature concerning the environmental consequences
    of increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide leads to the conclusion that increases during the 20th and early 21st centuries have produced no deleterious
    effects upon Earth’s weather and climate. Increased carbon dioxide has, however, markedly increased plant growth. Predictions of harmful climatic effects
    due to future increases in hydrocarbon use and minor greenhouse
    gases like CO2 do not conform to current experimental knowledge. The environmental effects of rapid expansion of the nuclear and hydrocarbon energy industries are discussed. Click here for the paper:
