More people suffer and die of cold weather and Western Academia’s phony climate change science than from hot weather. Hopefully, another cold winter won’t have the elderly in Great Britain*** burning books again to stay warm.
On the eve of the 31Oct-12Nov COP26 meeting (26th UN Climate Change Conference) hosted by the British in Glasgow, Scotland (many won’t bother to attend, e.g., China, Russia, Brazil, the Pope), North Sea winds literally stopped blowing, driving wind driven electricity production through the floorboards. A sudden need to fire up gas and coal-fired electricity plants arose overnight.
Fears for thee but not for we, hypocritical Hot World authoritarians, is political theater in this age of MSM disinformation and propaganda. Scientific cognitive dissonance has become scientific cognitive distortion.
Climate change research has been plagued since the days of hysterical fears of imminent cooling in the 1970s. Western climate science has become a pathological religion and should be taken with the seriousness that many outside Western academia compare to the science of ancient astrology.
Modern climate change alarmism is based on fake news that’s based on phony science that’s based on the misuse of continuously adjusted research data, poor statistics and unverifiable computer models. It is a knowing outright corruption of raw science without accountability of any kind, all made-up by a sycophantic culture of interrelated, self-reinforcing, self-serving gurus (elevated far above their competence for ideological reasons) who practice the art of superstitious preconceptions and flawed conclusions to push a politically-correct voodoo.
- We also know that the myth of a scientific consensus belies the actual fact of an ideologically-driven consensus supported by fraud and corruption. We know that the global warming alarmists have become further and further removed from the rationalism and dispassionate search for truth that the scientific method requires. We see the failure of academia and note its precipitous decline in a sense of truthfulness among officially sanctioned scientists in proportion to the confused the cognitive distortion of their Climatology belief system. We also see global cooling. We see all of the other completely natural explanations for global warming that the climate change catastrophists ignore.
As Philip Stott predicted in his article on cognitive dissonance, what follows is the usual insult and crapulent BS commie-dog campaign from the Left that’s now raised to a fever pitch before these prophets of global warming doom are all dragged down by the cold, dead stone of irrefutable logic. This final howling of the Heaven’s Gate cult of Climate Change fear mongers mark a point in time that may give rise to some hope in the next election. As Victor Davis Hanson (Lecture, September 8, 2021) asked and answered, “What can the citizen do… we can vote… we have to say, ‘No’.”
***Fallacy Six: The UK has shown world-leading decarbonisation
Finally, a sixth fallacy is about a conjuring trick. The claim that the UK is admired around the world for its example and for the speed of its ‘decarbonisation’ since 2000 – which is actually a deindustrialisation – is much repeated by British politicians and ‘green’ bureaucrats. This too is an illusion because much ‘decarbonisation’ is sleight of hand. Manufacturing and its associated emissions have simply been shipped offshore over the last two decades, mainly to China (so-called ‘carbon leakage’), and then the products re-imported and the related emissions debited to the manufacturers’ account. A totemic pride is also taken in ‘driving’ coal out of the power generation sector with no apparent comprehension of the true meaning and implications of what that means for the resilience of an advanced economy, nor, it seems, awareness of what has happened in Germany’s Energiewende when this experiment was conducted. ~Gwythian Prins (The worm in the rose)
