It’s the Science, Stupid
Don’t be misled: There is no global-warming consensus among scientists.
By Thomas Sowell
If you take the mainstream media seriously, you might think that every important scientist believes that “global warming” poses a great threat, and that we need to make drastic changes in the way we live, in order to avoid catastrophes to the environment, to various species, and to ourselves.
The media play a key role in perpetuating such beliefs. Often they seize upon every heat wave to hype global warming, but see no implications in record-setting cold weather, such as many places have been experiencing lately.
Remember how the unusually large number of hurricanes a couple of years ago was hyped in the media as being a result of global warming, with more such hurricanes being predicted to return the following year and the years thereafter?
But, when not one hurricane struck the United States all last year, the media had little or nothing to say about the false predictions they had hyped. It’s heads I win and tails you lose.
As I always say, consensus science is junk science.
When the left started the mass hysteria about global warming, my only thought was to reach for my wallet.
I seem to remember a similar hysteria back in the ’70s about the coming ice age. That one didn’t happen, so it must be global warming instead!
Idiots. One and all that fall for this BS.
