Many on the Left are in FULL MELT DOWN MODE over climate catastrophe fears
As I’ve written about extensively in the past few days, the Left has raised a generation that truly believes the world is about to end.
Here’s what I said yesterday:
“Here’s the thing – the Left has literally been promoting that narrative since before this new generation was BORN. Many of us have lived our ENTIRE LIVES being told that THE WORLD WILL COME TO AN END – SOON.
I can understand that someone with a “fragile constitution” may be terrified at this – because what the Left says is LEGITIMATELY TERRIFYING.
As I mentioned last night, I feel really uncomfortable with the whole Greta Thunberg thing.
Mostly because a bunch of adults are either laughing or clapping as a 16-year-old with aspergers has a very public meltdown.
Why is she having this meltdown? Because the Leftist media has been pushing this “end of the world” narrative down our throats for the entirety of her short life, and her aspergers gives her laser-focus on this one topic. She can’t tune it out, or brush it off, or determine that the Left is overblowing the entire situation for clicks and votes.
This young girl with aspergers believes the world is truly coming to an end… and she’s panicking. It’s not funny – it’s horrifying. It’s horrifying that the Left has done this to her – and is now holding her up as a weapon for it.
And it’s not isolated to Greta. We have now raised a generation that truly believes we’re all about to die.”
THIS IS HORRIFIC. THE LEFT IS VERY CLEARLY DOING THIS ON PURPOSE. They WANT people to live in fear – so that they may use that fear to their own political advantage.
They keep saying “listen to SCIENCE.”
Well, scientists DO want you to listen – and they have something rather important to say: “Pump the breaks.”
According to Breitbart:
More than 500 scientists and professionals in climate and related fields have sent a “European Climate Declaration” to the Secretary-General of the United Nations asking for a long-overdue, high-level, open debate on climate change.
Just as 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg addressed the U.N. Climate Action Summit in New York accusing world leaders of robbing her of her future, scientists were begging the United Nations to keep hysteria from obscuring facts.
“Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific,” the declaration states. “Scientists should openly address the uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real benefits as well as the imagined costs of adaptation to global warming, and the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of mitigation.”
The scientists underscored the importance of not rushing into enormously expensive climate action before fully ascertaining the facts.
That’s the thing. I think of myself as a bit of an environmentalist – I am CERTAINLY an outdoorsman. (Outdoors-woman?) I am NOT willing to completely eviscerate the world’s economy over something we don’t legitimately understand yet.
“There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent,” they declared. “However, CO2-mitigation measures are as damaging as they are costly. For instance, wind turbines kill birds and bats, and palm-oil plantations destroy the biodiversity of the rainforests.”
The signatories of the declaration also insist that public policy must respect scientific and economic realities and not just reflect the most fashionable frenzy of the day.
“There is no climate emergency. Therefore, there is no cause for panic and alarm,” they note. “We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy proposed for 2050.”
THERE IS NO CLIMATE EMERGENCY.
THERE IS NO CAUSE FOR PANIC AND ALARM.
“If better approaches emerge, and they certainly will, we have ample time to reflect and adapt. The aim of international policy should be to provide reliable and affordable energy at all times, and throughout the world,” they state.
In particular, the scientists criticize the general-circulation models of climate on which international policy is currently founded as “unfit for their purpose.”
“Therefore, it is cruel as well as imprudent to advocate the squandering of trillions on the basis of results from such immature models,” they propose. “Current climate policies pointlessly, grievously undermine the economic system, putting lives at risk in countries denied access to affordable, continuous electrical power.”
“We urge you to follow a climate policy based on sound science, realistic economics and genuine concern for those harmed by costly but unnecessary attempts at mitigation,” they declare.
THIS. ALL OF THIS.
