This happens every day

© 2016 Jim Spence -  It is one of the most astonishing aspects of 21st Century life. Climate change paranoia is baked into every nook and cranny of our culture. It starts with our failed education system, which cannot separate fundamental facts from what Democrats wish were true. The brainwashing and indoctrination starts early and goes on non-stop in countless bastions of society controlled by Democrats. School children are conditioned to view all weather “events” based on the vague notion of “climate change.” It is as if there is no longer any mention of the fact that hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods have been around for all of recorded history. And of course now that population density is higher, the impacts of common weather events are greater. However, these facts don’t help the climate change paranoia narrative, so they are omitted……except when children are home-schooled.
What is even more disturbing is the total absence of accountability in the climate change alarmist’s prior predictions. Having been an avid consumer of news as well as an observer of both climate prognostications and actual results, it is beyond amazing how wrong all of the supposed “settled science” types have been when it comes to forecasting dire consequences of global warming. It would seem that continuing to drive cars and fly commercial jets to and from the places we want to go to is not going to lead to an apocalypse after all.
Consider the fact that the San Jose Mercury News reported way back in June of 1989 that a “senior environmental official at the United Nations (Noel Brown), said in no uncertain terms that, “Entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels if global warming was not reversed by the year 2000.” Sorry folks. Not now, when we still don’t have rising seas, but seventeen years ago when we did not have them, was the time when the jig was up on that catastrophic prediction. There are many more bogus predictions.
Though the U.N.’s most esteemed “climate scientist” could not have been more wrong in 1989, the U.N. continues to float the same anti-fossil fuel propaganda, as if it still has credibility. The U.N.’s top climate scientist said in 2007 that we had only four years to save the world. Rajendra Pachauri, who served as the head of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was emphatic in 2007. “If there’s no action before 2012, that’s too late,” he said ominously. “What we do in the next two to three years will determine our future. This is the defining moment,” he added. He was right about one thing. He defined himself as not knowing what he was talking about. Again, and amazingly, there seems to be no consequence to being chicken little or the boy who cried wolf for these schmucks.
Environmentalists did not stop at predicting rising seas and the wiping out of coastal communities all around the world. Noted climate change/global warming alarmist George Monbiot suggested in a column in the UK’s Guardian in 2002 that within, “as little as 10 years, the world will be faced with a choice: arable farming either continues to feed the world’s animals or it continues to feed the world’s people. It cannot do both.” Oh really George? It turns out that around 930 million people worldwide were undernourished in 2002, according to the U.N. However, by 2014, that number had declined to 805 million thanks to burgeoning agricultural production all around the world and despite big expansions in the global population.
Great Britain’s Prime Minister Gordon Brown joined the folly. He actually said there was only 50 days left to save Earth back in 2009……from global warming. Talk about crying wolf. Brown was voted out of office, but not for his asinine global warming predictions. The U.K. suffered from a deep freeze a few years ago with thousands of deaths not long after Brown warned it would get "too warm."
What is going on here besides a public education system with a Democrat agenda that is determined to teach baloney? Well, there is Hollywood perpetuating apocalyptic myths as well as the news media parroting things that discredited scientists keep blathering on about.
The problem with the entire climate change scam is that it is built upon basic data misrepresentations. And sadly, it is the basic data misrepresentations of the climate change crowd, and not the so-called “deniers” that violates basic scientific norms.
Instead of welcoming all inquiry and sticking with a rigid adherence to clean data, grant gathering “scientists” have been caught over and over again acting as pitchmen for billions of dollars to fight the climate change boogieman. 
One of the great thinkers of the 20th Century identified the problem which has from time-to-time plagued the advancement of knowledge. It was Richard Feynman who chastised scientists and suggested it was fundamental to discuss objectively all the relevant evidence, even that which does not support the prevailing narrative. Of course reasonable people know that this is the basic difference between "science" and "naked advocacy." And for the media, the Democrat controlled education system, and Hollywood to behave as advocates while claiming to be scientific is one of the great scandals of the 21st Century.
Repeatedly we see a grotesque violation Einstein’s primary dictum, “One must not conceal any part of what one has recognized to be true.” This happens every day. There are no Einsteins in the climate change scam.
