MUST READ : On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare
Posted: June 29, 2020 | Author: Jamie Spry
â€œREMEMBER when we paved the world with electronic waste
that chopped eagles and condors and made bats extinct
because we thought wind was natural and uranium evil?
â€“ man that was a dark age!â€
â€“ Michael Shellenberger
â€œMUCH that passes as idealism is disguised
hatred or disguised love of power.â€
â€“ Bertrand Russell
TIME Magazine â€œHero of the Environment,â€ and U.N. IPCC expert reviewer Michael Shellenberger drops another inconvenient truth-bomb in the fight against the dangerous and costly politicisation of science.
â€œBut mostly I was scared. I remained quiet about the climate disinformation campaign because I was afraid of losing friends and funding. The few times I summoned the courage to defend climate science from those who misrepresent it I suffered harsh consequences. And so I mostly stood by and did next to nothing as my fellow environmentalists terrified the public.â€
REGARDLESS of your position on the magnitude of anthropogenic carbon dioxide as the supposed â€œclimate control knobâ€œ, this is a timely and important read. Especially in the dangerous new age of postmodernism that we currently inhabit where truth, reason, honesty and integrity within government, academia and the sciences is in such short supply.
Ergo, props to Michael Shellenberger. Questioning dogma objectively, in the quest to restore scientific integrity, is risky business, these days.
Now he can make money debunking the stuff he made money off of. :pondering:
