Just out of morbid curiosity, I recently added “climate change” news to the news feed on my phone, and I have got to say that it’s been educational. This inspired me to search for similar articles on the internet, and i want to share some of my favorite headlines from the climate change alarmist hysteria factory of the last few years:
“Midwest floods foreshadow national security threat posed by climate change” (pbs.com 2019)
“Terrifying insights into climate change could build legislative momentum for emissions cuts, researchers argue” (phys.com 2019)
“This is the scariest graph I’ve ever seen!” (youtube.com 2018)
“Climate change may be escalating so fast it could be ‘game over’, scientists warn” – The (Independent.com 2016)
“10 Terrifying Facts From the UN’s New Climate Report” (MotherJones.com 2014)
“Here’s a Shocking Visualization of the Planet’s Rising Temperatures” (Gizmodo.com 2015)
“62 Years of Climate Change in One Terrifying Animation” (IGN.com 2014)
“This chart of rising ocean temperatures is terrifying” (Grist.com 2015)
Notice a trend here? After we get past the fact that climate alarmists are, for some reason, scared of graphs and charts, does the prolific use of “scariest“, “shocking“, and “terrifying” sound at all like objective science? No, it doesn’t, and that’s because this isn’t science. It’s manufactured mass hysteria, and the alarmists know it.
The climate change alarmists don’t want the American public to be informed about climate science. They want the American public to be so utterly scared about climate change that they will believe practically anything the climate change alarmists want them to believe. That’s also not how objective science works, either.
The fact is that sort of people who find climate science compelling aren’t doing so rationally, and how could they? Everyone under the age of 40 in the US has been inundated their entire lives by alarmist headlines. Every flood, every drought, every tornado, every hurricane, every wildfire, etc. is “proof” of climate change.
Except, of course, that they aren’t. Fear is the tool of despots and nuts, because fear, beyond every other emotion, motivates people to action, where reason and logic often will not. Are not reason and logic the heart of science? So why are these people making a public appeal in a fear campaign? Because they are wrong.
