With the ‘expert’ COVID view blown up, green terror must be next
By demolishing the views of “experts” on Covid – mask orders are useless; Vaccines fail to prevent transmission; The virus likely came from that Wuhan lab – it’s time to take it very much A hard look at another prominent “settled science” pseudo-consensus: the climate catastrophe-story.
Climate change is real, with human activities contributing. But the exact mechanics aren’t remotely as well understood as the received wisdom — and how to fix it, from Greta Thunberg and Al Gore to Joe Biden, Kathy Hochul and much of the media, panic about it. -Campaign Madness. Absolutely opponent– science
Carbon fuels and the technologies that depend on them are essential to modern society: pretending that governments can simply mandate them, ordering them into existence, is out-and-out magical thinking — and unicorns and magic crystals. A policy based on that can only bring disaster. And suffering.
Yes, hysterics also point to calamities and sorrows. But this includes even more disconnects from reality (documented at length by brave skeptics like Bjorn Lomberg and others). Here only a something:
- At the 2021 Glasgow United Nations climate summit, John Kerry said we only have nine years left to stop global warming. This followed Prince (now King) Charles’ 2019 claim that we only had 18 months. Which conflicted with the AOC’s claim that same year that we only had 12 years left. Which is contrary to the British Greens’ 2004 claim that climate change will destroy all human civilization by 2020. That timeline undermined the 1989 United Nations prediction that we had just three years left to win the climate battle — a colossal failure. The same body said In 1972 That there is only one decade left before time runs out.
- Consider also climate refugees, that is, people certain to be forced from their homes by climate change. The Institute for Economics and Peace predicts 1.2 billion climate refugees by 2050; But great minds have as bad a record here as they do on doomsday. The United Nations not long ago predicted such 50 million refugees As of 2010A massive migration flow that failed to fully materialize.
- On individual extreme weather events, the record of the “experts” is equally pitiful. Despite endless predictions of raging wildfires and city-submerging floods, the overall death toll from such events is falling. too muchFrom about 500,000 worldwide in 1920 to about 18,000 from 2012 to 2022.
- Don’t forget the hapless critics that green loves to hype. Remember the disappearing polar bear, the keystone of Al Gore’s moral-panic masterpiece “An Inconvenient Truth”? Turns out they have numbers above 2.5 to five times since the 60s. The supposedly dying coral of the Great Barrier Reef now holds more Coral than at any time since record keeping began.
Green fundamentalists, statistics show, are as in the dark about the state of the climate as Anthony Fauci et al were about Covid. Their “solution” – ban gas stoves! Command Teslas! Eat mealworms! – are equally absurd, catering to the fancies and emotions of wealthy progressives rather than rationally aiming to reduce the (very real) risks of climate change that actually present.
It’s time we stop listening to them, for good.
