I have never met or seen a climate change denier, but I have seen a lot of climate change liars spreading scary propaganda
It is sad that it seems every day we read another dire forecast from the U.N., Kerry, Biden, the teenager Greta, or someone else on climate change, and right now is always the last chance to act. Every solution involves the government confiscating a huge amount of money from taxpayers and then the U.S. transferring huge sums to other countries to resolve the problem. Every solution involves Americans giving up their freedom and way of life while destroying the oil industry.
What you don't see in these dire forecasts are any scientific data from the last 150 years that directly link the U.S. population, coal, and oil use to temperatures, sea levels, or storm activity — because there are none. Facts haven't mattered for a long time when most of the media, government bureaucrats, Hollywood, and other Democrats are campaigning for their radical leftist agenda to destroy America.
China, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and other oil-producing countries aren't required to destroy their countries as America is. They are special. They promise they will act decades down the road even though we are told the threat is imminent and existential.
We have been hearing these dire, existential threat forecasts for decades, and every time, we have only a few years left to solve the problem. Forecasts say the icecaps will soon be gone and coastal cities will soon be under water. Such forecasts have been 100% wrong, but none of that matters. They just repeat it over and over until the public, especially the children, are indoctrinated. Facts don't matter.
The only forecasts that deviated from the mantra were in the 1970s, when somehow the Earth had cooled so much that much of the Earth was going to be destroyed, and billions would die soon, from the coming ice age. The fact that the Earth cooled for over thirty years while oil use, CO2, and the population were all rising rapidly shows factually that there is no link, but to all the leftists pushing the agenda, these scientific data make no difference.
People who tell the truth that the climate has always changed cyclically and naturally are called climate change deniers to intentionally mislead the public and silence them. People who continually make false predictions are somehow called pro-science and truth-tellers. Maybe we should coin a term for people who continually repeat the same things, over and over again, no matter how wrong they are. We can call them "climate change liars."
Then, after most of the media repeat the same talking points endlessly, with no evidence, they take a push poll that shows that the majority of the public believes the propaganda they have spread like manure. Then they use these polls to justify passing the massive slush funds for radical leftists. It is not at all different from spreading lies about Russian collusion or hiding Biden in the basement while pretending he was a moderate.
About 6 out of 10 Americans also believe that the pace of global warming is speeding, according to a new survey from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago.
As Biden struggles to pass significant climate legislation at home ahead of next week's U.N. climate summit, the new AP-NORC/EPIC poll also shows that 55% of Americans want Congress to pass a bill to ensure that more of the nation's electricity comes from clean energy and less from climate-damaging coal and natural gas.
Considering all the dire forecasts on climate change, maybe some facts could lower the temperature.
Steven Koonin, a physicist at the Department of Energy in the Obama administration, authored a book titled Unsettled, What Climate Science Tells Us, What it Doesn't, and Why it Matters.
Somehow the book did not get much coverage even though the media continually report on climate change.
· "The warmest temperatures in the U.S. have not risen in the past fifty years," Koonin writes, according to the U.S. government's Climate Science Special Report.
· "Humans have had no detectable impact on hurricanes over the past century," according to the 2014 National Climate Assessment.
· "Since the middle of the twentieth century, the number of significant tornadoes hasn't changed much at all, but the strongest storms have become less frequent," according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data (NOAA).
· "The rate of global sea-level rise 70 years ago was as large as what we observe today," according to the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
· Instead of droughts, "the past fifty years have been slightly wetter than average" in the United States, according to NOAA figures.
· Rather than famine, "in the fifty years from 1961 to 2011, global yields of wheat, rice, and maize … each more than doubled," according to the IPCC.
· "The net economic impact of human-induced climate change will be minimal through at least the end of this century."
It would be helpful if the media covered all sides of the climate issue.
