Can you trust information from government agencies

To the Editor:
We live in a society where deception is always present. It is truly the age of deception as predicted Biblically. With that in mind the question arises: what agencies or organizations, be it a part of the government or supported by elite globalists, can you believe or trust?
At the present many federal agencies are controlled by agendas — be it climate control, open borders, rewriting national history, vaccine mandates, defund the police, gender identity, etc. In all of these cases the specific agenda determines what information is released to the public, be it true, biased or false. You can no longer trust the data and/or information from these agencies. You must have discernment and obtain independent information from reputable persons or organizations not associated with the government agency. It is important to realize that many of the agendas are international in scope and/or involve several agencies.
The CLIMATE CONTROL AGENDA is an excellent example. The problem is that it has become extremely politicized and became a primary agenda of the present administration. Thus all cabinet members have to push this agenda along with the associated agencies regardless of the facts. That is why numerous excellent scientists/engineers have resigned their position in protest. They have joined independent organizations from which you can get factual information. Of course these individuals have been canceled by the government agencies, the liberal media and the globalist elites. Too few people realize that the long range goal of the climate change agenda is to exercise control over the populace. If this erroneous agenda ever gets codified into law your activities and freedoms will be curtailed through a multitude of restrictions. For example, your electrical usage as well as fuel usage will be limited. These two restrictions will limit when, where and how far you travel, availability of food and could even curtail your use of water and any other activity that consumes energy. Needless to say the use of recreational vehicles and boating will either end or be greatly restrained except for the elite.
Relative to history the earth’s temperature was much higher during the medieval warm period which lasted through about 1500 AD. Then the temperatures went down with the Maunder Minimum (Little Ice Age) occurring from 1645 to 1715. This was when they ice skated in Holland and on the Thames river in England. Indications are that the sun activity was low during this time. Then a warming trend began around 1900 and reached a plateau that we are still on today. Of course there have been fluctuations but nothing really dramatic and no values even close to those of the medieval period.
Another problem area that has led to some dire predictions is weather models (mathematical models). To date there is not a truly accurate model even though some claim they have one. The dire prediction by Al Gore in his book “An Inconvenient Truth” that New York would be under water by now was associated with use of a model to predict what would happen due to global warming. In short the various weather models have proven unreliable as a predictor of future weather events or temperature changes. They all predict the weather system will go unstable with dire results. The problem with the models is their inability to properly correlate all of the variables. Some variables that come into play are the sun’s activity level and interaction with the earth as it rotates, dilates and moves in its orbit plus the interaction with clouds and how they form, the effect of the wind and the effect of the moon and associated ocean movements. Likewise we do not fully understand the interaction of these variables with the contents of the upper atmosphere. Then you have the effects of things that happen on the earth such as volcanic activity, large fires, major wars and other types of pollution including CO2. It is a tough problem that deserves earnest attention but does not need political or media overtones or intervention.
Well, what about NASA and many colleges and universities? NASA is a government agency and much weather research at college/universities is controlled by the government. To survive or get extended research funds they must abide by the associated agenda. Thus the information and/or data that you receive will be tainted by the agenda and thus may be biased. Several years ago (during the Obama administration) several retired NASA engineers/scientists said that global warming was a hoax. Of course they were discredited by the liberal media. About 25 years or so ago three scientists/engineers were dismissed by NASA for selecting specific temperature data from a data base that supported global warming when use of the complete data base did not. How times have changed as we have become an agenda driven society. In fact a sizable amount of today’s technical literature is tainted by agendas. This is sad because 30 or 40 years ago you were confident that what you read was the facts and not slanted in any way. Getting true un-adulterated data or facts is difficult today.
The final conclusion is that we do not have a satisfactory mathematical model or theory that explains the fluctuations in the earth’s temperature or climate changes. To be sure, the climate does change and often with terrible local consequences as we have seen in recent times. But existing models tend to say that the climate system is unstable and thus predict a calamity. That is what led to the dire predictions by Al Gore which did not occur. When God created this world he set up a climate system that is inherently stable. The various variables have bounds. When we can develop a model that reflects this stability then we will be able understand the interaction of all the variables previously mentioned.
It is fool heartedly today to use known fraudulent models to reach alarming conclusions about the future then use these predicted situations as a means to control people/society. The key is to take politics out of the study of climate change. Then let the unbiased results lead us to make sensible wise decisions.
