Edward Snowden: “Global Warming is an invention of the CIA”

Moscow | National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden, has made a new controversial claim yesterday during an interview, saying that he possesses some classified information proving that the CIA is behind the “theory of Global Warming”.

Snowden, who lives as a fugitive in Russia after leaking documents about the NSA’s surveillance programs, has made some previously unreported allegations during an interview with the Moscow Tribune.

Mr. Snowden says the CIA first orchestrated the spread of the “Global Warming scare” in the 1950s, in order to divert the attention of the scientific community, from the dangers of the weapons race and reinforce its control over research institutes.

“I have documents showing that the CIA invented the whole thing,” claims Edward Snowden. “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.”


Mr. Snowden says that the documents proving that the CIA invented the whole thing will be integrally reproduced in his new book, expected to be released in September 2016.

Edward Snowden was hired by an NSA contractor in 2013 after previous employment with Dell and the CIA.

In the month of June of the same year, he revealed thousands of classified NSA documents to journalists.

He also claims to be in possession of CIA documents, linking the agency to many illegal activities.

The US government filed espionage charges against him shortly after his revelations were made public.

He has been living under asylum in Moscow, after fleeing the US for Hong Kong in the wake of the leaks.

On July 28, 2015, the White House has rejected a “We the People” petition of nearly 168,000 signatories, to pardon him.

He has since threatened to release other documents in his possession, which he claims would be far more embarrassing for the American government than the ones he has already rendered public.

  1. They’ve been studying Global Climate change since the 1800s

    • I guess he is talking about the invention of the man made global warming (adding CO² to the atmosphere) – not about the natural and always happening change of climate.

    • No – man has been adapting to natural climate variations through ice ages, droughts, periods of increased and lesser rainfall, the desertification of over-grazed pasture, etc, etc, since he first walked the earth.

  2. Now Snowden will be charged as a Climate Change Denier in addition to other charges for leaking docs.

  3. This is a blockbuster claim, full of possible implications.

    i have no reason to doubt Snowden, but we must see a bit of evidence for a claim of this nature.

    Margaret Thatcher can also get part of the global warming scare credit. She was having trouble with unionized coal mines in the UK and decided to threaten them with replacement by nuclear, supposedly to decrease CO2 emissions that were just then be demonized as a “greenhouse gas.”

    Edward Snowden is right, as he has been all along. Can’t wait to read his book coming out this year. He is also the sexiest man on planet Earth.
