Let’s start with some quotes to set the tone:
Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled.
- Michael Crichton
To me, consensus seems to be the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies. So it is something in which no one believes and to which no one objects.
- Margaret Thatcher
Start thinking for yourselve at your own risk. There is no going back.
I am gonna list the common decades old treatment of climate change sceptics.
4. Loss of employment
5. Character attacks
7. Fake news attacks
8. Congressional investigations
Sounds familiar? Notice the lack of debate the of actual science and facts?
For decades now there is the claim that 97% of scientists agree on anthropogenic global warming. The one that the msm is pushing like there is no tomorrow. There is not a single other class of science where there is a scientific consensus. Period! Example atom theory: first they thought the atom is the smallest particle in reality, then they found out its not. Protons electrons and neutrons where a thing suddenly. Then we discovered even weirder smaller parts. Along the way we had to change the agreed on model of orbitals for atoms entirely. Climate science should be treated like any other science. Theories based on facts that have to be adjusted if new and better facts and findings are made. Sounds reasonable to me. Let's assume for a moment the worst and AOC is right and the gig is up in 12 years. Would it not be our TOP priority to have the very best scientists with the most impenetrable working standards going at it? One would think NASA, the guys who sent men to the moon, may be those elite scientists. Fun thing tho, Harrison Schmidt the only scientist to ever walk the moon is a prominent man made climate change sceptic. Also just as a reminder 49 former NASA scientists and astronauts sent a letter declaring "their disbelief in the catastrophic forecasts, ... it is clear that the science is NOT settled." This was back in 2012 from the actual unforgiving field of rocket science, where every tiny error will resort in death and despair. The NASA weather leeches that bask in the space accompishments claim an authorative position of unearned competence. The 97% number has ben debunked countless times but it still remains on NASA’s page. The CEI tries to force NASA remove the 97% statement by a petition filed under the Information Quality Act. Under guidance released by Office of Management and Budget in April, NASA has 120 days to respond to CEI’s request for correction and its response must include a “point-by-point response to any data quality arguments” raised in the request. Here is the article from the CEI. Have fun with it.
In about 4 month we should see if any good comes of this. In the meantime:
Have a nice day!
