Global warming conspiracy theory is a collection of allegations that, through worldwide acts of professional and criminal misconduct, the science behind anthropogenic global warming has been invented and is being perpetuated for financial or ideological reasons. Proponents of such allegations refer to the scientific consensus as a “global warming hoax”, or “global warming fraud”.
Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and scientists are more than 90% certain most of it is caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases produced by human activities such as deforestation and burning fossil fuels. These findings are recognized by the national science academies of all the major industrialized countries.
Despite the broad international scientific consensus, allegations have been made that these researchers and institutions are part of a global scientific conspiracy.
In a speech given to the US Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works on July 28, 2003, entitled “The Science of Climate Change”, Senator James Inhofe (Republican, for Oklahoma) concluded by asking the following question: “With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science, could it be that man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people?” He further stated “some parts of the IPCC process resembled a Soviet-style trial, in which the facts are predetermined, and ideological purity trumps technical and scientific rigor.” Inhofe has suggested that supporters of the Kyoto Protocol such as Jacques Chirac are aiming at global governance.
