“Trust the experts,” we the peasants are exhorted by the governing authorities in all matters at all times – common sense, intuition, individual judgment be damned.
They never bother to explain why some experts are to be mindlessly obeyed while others are to be dismissed.
For instance, I don’t suppose MSNBC or The New York Times will be running articles beseeching us to listen to these 1,600 scientists who recently signed a declaration contradicting the official narrative surrounding something called “climate change.”
Via The College Fix:
“A total of 1,609 scientists, professors and other scholars have signed on to a new declaration that argues there is no climate change crisis.
“There is no climate emergency” is the title of the declaration that consists of 53 pages’ worth of signatories from across the globe, including some Nobel Laureates and other researchers from prestigious universities. Other signers include engineers, attorneys and other professionals.
The declaration, published with its endorsers in mid-August, lists six main arguments against the alleged climate crisis, including that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant and is actually “plant food” and “the basis of all life on Earth.”*
*This is the single most important aspect of the “climate change” hoax to grasp: it is a war on carbon, on its face, but, at the core, it is a war on life on Earth, which is comprised primarily of carbon. 18.5% of the human body mass is carbon, which has often been described as the “backbone” element due to its inclusion in many organic molecules.
From the declaration, titled “There Is no Climate Emergency,” signed by 1,600 credentialed scientists, many of whom may coincidentally find their grants dried up in the near future:
“The geological archive reveals that Earth’s climate has varied as long as the planet has existed, with natural cold and warm phases. The Little Ice Age ended as recently as 1850. Therefore, it is no surprise that we now are experiencing a period of warming…
The world has warmed significantly less than predicted by IPCC on the basis of modeled anthropogenic forcing. The gap between the real world and the modeled world tells us that we are far from understanding climate change.
There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent. However, there is ample evidence that CO2-mitigation measures are as damaging as they are costly…
To believe the outcome of a climate model is to believe what the model makers have put in*. This is precisely the problem of today’s climate discussion to which climate models are central. Climate science has degenerated into a discussion based on beliefs, not on sound self-critical science. Should not we free ourselves from the naive belief in immature climate models?”
*Recall this COVID death model predicting deaths in the millions, propagated by the Public Health authorities to justify unjustifiable lockdowns.
For the record, here’s Al Gore predicting in 2009 that the polar bears would all be dead in five years (and that they can’t swim even though they swim hundreds of miles at a clip):
Related to the point made that the climate is naturally evolving, let us not forget that “climate change” was once called “global warming,” but was amended so as to make the term as open-ended and therefore versatile in its social engineering applications as possible. Even the proponents of unprecedented social and economic upheaval in its name can no longer say exactly what “climate change” refers to because it refers to nothing and everything all at once. It’s a cliché, a buzzword, a banal platitude.
But the implications are genocidal.
