Climate change advocacy is all about the framing of a virtue signaling narrative that incites fear in the public so political agendas can turn into laws. In President Joe Biden’s, recent speech to the UN General Assembly speech he said the following…
“Will we meet the threat of the challenging climate we’re all feeling already ravaging every part of our world with extreme weather, or will we suffer the merciless march of ever worsening droughts and floods, more intense fires and hurricanes, longer heat waves and rising seas?”
“This year has also brought widespread death and devastation from the borderless climate crisis. The extreme weather events that we have seen in every part of the world, and you all know it and feel it represent what the Secretary General has rightly called code red for humanity. And the scientists and experts are telling us that we’re fast approaching a point of no return in a literal sense.”
There you have it, virtue signaling fear mongering “settled science” propaganda straight from the mouth of the President of the United States;
Fear mongering 1-0-1; find a world pedestal, climb on that world pedestal and say things that will stir up basic fears of survival in all those who hear the words. Use words and phrases like ravaging, extreme, merciless, widespread death and devastation, code red for humanity, and of course the all time favorite point of no return.
We have been told over and over again by the “settled science” crowd that the climate change apocalypse is right around the corner and we’ve been told that for over 50 years. They’ve been telling us that there’s a “planetary emergency”, climate change is an “existential threat”, claims that “we are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation”, one University professor actually wrote in 1970 that “Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.”. We have been told that sea levels are going to rise because of melting Artic ice and flood all the coastal areas of the earth. The climate change predictions are endless and when the predictions based on that “settled science” don’t come true, they just shrug their shoulders and drag the goalposts further down the road; how convenient it is to be a politically correct science propagandist that no one is supposed to question.
Let’s do a brief review of some “settled science”.
The following video pulls out the big guns from Hollywood to tell us that climate change is upon us and the apocalypse is right around the corner. There’s lots of “settled science” in the video to embrace but pay close attention to the “settled science” apocalyptic climate predictions presented by Dr. Hays [thanks to TA for noting the misspelling of Dr. Hays name] at 12:30 and compare that to the “settled science” we get from today’s apocalyptic climate change cult.
When you pull out the big guns from Hollywood to tell us that the world is coming to an end you know it must be undeniable fact because famous people are the keepers of all knowledge that is good and wise and would never lend their good names to something that’s not absolute truth. The opinions in the video were based on a specific kind of scientific tunnel vision that ignores climate history that falls outside of the preapproved narrative.
Here is a video that shows how the “settled science” people are intentionally manipulating the public…
We can clearly see from the information presented in the video that the people promoting massive social changes based on climate change predictions are viewing their climate change data about fires through a very intentional preapproved tunnel vision and ignore anything that contradicts their narrative. This is not an isolated incident of tunnel vision in modern climate change “science” this is the new “activist science” (much of like the new activist journalism) standard, simply focus on what supports your narrative and ignore everything else while publicly smearing all those that disagree as lunatic conspiracy theorists wearing tinfoil hats. Climate change activists seem to think that they don’t have to actually argue intelligently when those who oppose them are publicly smeared as a bunch of wackos.
If you think I’m exaggerating about the tunnel vision of scientific activism then you aren’t paying attention to what’s going on.
This is all “settled science” folks and if you don’t believe every damn word of it you’re a science denier heretic and a political outcast from the hive mind of “right” thinkers, you might as well be wearing the Star of David on your lapel because you’re an idiot “wrong” thinker and have earned your public scorn and persecution.
Who the hell do all these “scientists” think they are making claims and basically stating that they’re accurately predicting exactly what Mother Nature’s climate is going to do in the next 5, 10, 30, 50, 100, 1000, etc years and predicting what exactly the resulting apocalyptic changes are going to be across the planet? Geologically and scientifically speaking, climate science is still in its’ embryonic stage of development because we don’t have completely accurate information of how climate change actually works it’s still all theoretical, but yet We the People are supposed to simply swallow everything these arrogant scientists predict as if it’s facts that are permanently etched in marble and not correlation = causation tunnel vision. To date, none of the wide spread apocalyptic kind of climate change predictions have come true, all we have is some bad weather that the fear mongering activists claim is worse than it’s ever been, which is more tunnel vision lies. Climate scientists are arrogant charlatans and they’re lying to We the People.
To be absolutely truthful and honest, cleaning up the environment would b a great thing for the planet and the entire human race. The best I can tell, everyone and everything would benefit from having a clean planet where resources aren’t squandered and pollution of all kinds are kept to a bare minimum, but all the cultish hype and lies surrounding the “settled science” we hear from apocalyptic climate change advocates is just a bunch of correlation = causation arrogant science-speak bull shit.
We the People need to fully understand that there’s nothing about the “settled science” of climate change, and its corresponding activism, that is actually settled.
