Proponents of the global warming hoax are now calling on the worldwide media to flat-out censor opposing views. The climate alarmists say they are “too right to debate,” and that they are unwilling to even discuss scientific evidence which contradicts their opinions. According to the climate change pushers, their narrative is the only viewpoint worthy of press coverage and that their take on climate science is “fact,” while anything else is a “fringe voice” not worthy of acknowledgement.
In an open letter to The Guardian, 60 scientists, activists and other climate alarmists declared that they refuse to debate anyone who denies the existence of climate change. The holier-than-thou group contends that climate change is a fact because they said so and that’s all there is to it.
As the letter states:
We are no longer willing to lend our credibility to debates over whether or not climate change is real. It is real. We need to act now or the consequences will be catastrophic. In the interests of “balance”, the media often feels the need to include those who outright deny the reality of human-triggered climate change.
Balance implies equal weight. But this then creates a false equivalence between an overwhelming scientific consensus and a lobby, heavily funded by vested interests, that exists simply to sow doubt to serve those interests. Yes, of course scientific consensus should be open to challenge – but with better science, not with spin and nonsense.
The letter concludes:
As campaigners and thinkers who are led by science and the precautionary principle, and who wish to debate the real and vital issues arising from human-triggered climate change, we will not assist in creating the impression that climate denial should be taken seriously by lending credence to its proponents, by entertaining ideas that lack any basis in fact. Therefore we will no longer debate those who deny that human-caused climate change is real. There are plenty of vital debates to be had around climate chaos and what to do about it; this is simply no longer one of them. We urge broadcasters to move on, as we are doing.
Apparently, “better science” does not include the numerous studies which have disproved the infamous global warming “hockey stick” data — or the more recent studies which show that our planet is getting greener with more forest coverage rather than less.
It’s only “better science” when it fits the narrative, of course — otherwise its just “nonsense.” The argument that only so-called “climate deniers” stand to gain from promoting their views is a lie. There are entire industries being built around the climate change hoax — and politicians like Al Gore, a vocal proponent of the global warming movement, stand to get rich quick.
As sources report, Gore increased his net wealth from just $700,000 in 2000 to $172.5 million in 2015. He and his business partner made $218 million off of a carbon trading company between 2008 and 2011. Gore is a hypocrite: The amount of power he uses just to warm his pool is enough to heat six homes for an entire year. And in just 12 months, the Gore household uses enough energy to power one average American home for two decades.
Elon Musk, James Cameron and Warren Buffet have all made a fortune off of the fear-mongering that surrounds global warming, too. Those lobbies and “vested interests” are just as prominent in the pro-global warming community as they are anywhere else, and to pretend otherwise is sanctimonious “nonsense.” There’s a $53 billion market built on fear — and it was created by climate change alarmists.
