NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden has claimed that he possesses classified information that proves the CIA is behind the “Global Warming scam”.
Snowden told the Moscow Tribune that the CIA deliberately orchestrated the myth of Global Warming in the 1950’s in order to distract the scientific community away from the dangers of the weapons race at the time and to solidify its control over research institutions.
“I have documents showing that the CIA invented the whole thing,” Snowden claims. “Global Warming was invented to both scare people, and divert their attention from other human-made dangers like nuclear weapons.”
“The CIA gave millions of dollars to any scientist who would confirm the theory, so many unscrupulous scientists did what they were told in order to get the money. Now, there is so much fake data to confirm that Global Warming “exists”, that they actually convinced everyone that it was real.”
Edward Snowden was hired by an NSA contractor in 2013 after being previously employed by Dell and the CIA. In June 2013 he leaked thousands of classified NSA documents to journalists. He also claims have CIA documents linking the agency to numerous illegal activities.
The US government filed spy charges against Snowden after his revelations were published. He has been living under asylum in Moscow, after fleeing the US for Hong Kong following the leaks
On July 28 2015, the White House formally rejected a “We the People” petition of nearly 168,000 signatories to pardon him.
Snowden has promised to release other documents which he claims would be far more embarrassing for the American government than ones previously released.
