How To Identify Alarmist Literature

Every other sentence has something along the lines of “that was debunked here” or “that was discredited here” and then the usual smattering of words like hapless, incoherent, etc….

But what you won’t see is any discussion of the actual data or the concept being contested. The defense of their belief system invariably comes down to ad homs and appeals to authority – because most alarmists don’t know jack shit about anything. Their belief system comes down to – “humans are evil” – and beyond that any details aren’t important.

  1. But if you cite a paper (or 10) that contradicts their assertion, they magically know that the author of the paper is a crank or is part of a big oil conspiracy. I ask them, how do you know? Well, they just know…

      Yeah Will.

      Our NZ Alarmist Chicken Little’s at the Hot-Topic Blog. Are bad for calling any scientist who doesn’t go along with their Climate Alarmism as a ‘Climate Crank.’

      • “did she bother to check the author bios and if so, did she notice that they have obvious biases and conflicts of interest that might have compromised their ability to choose and assess the evidence cited in their report? ”

        -from Keith Kloor, journalist, criticizing acceptance of a report on GM crops.

    I hate to sound conspiratorial but I think climate change has more to do with justifying Agenda 21 more than anything else, except aligning the pockets of cap and traders with cash. I recently read “Behind the Green Mask” which was really enlightening. You can see the Rio conference stuff being implemented in your own home town.

      Rio is over and nothing has changed. Agenda 21 is as useless as the United Nations. It won’t come to pass, mainly because even the UN delegates are beginning to realize that AGW is bullshit.

      Of course the solution to traffic congestion is to build more or better freeways. But they pretty much stopped doing that about 30 years ago. It’s no longer cool or politically correct to build a freeway. But society suffers immensely because of this de facto prohibition. We need to break the greens on this.

      IMF= part of the problem

    Any alarmist claim about the climate from any source no matter how dubious (i.e. animal “migrations” of 20 feet or some such nonsense) is accepted without question by the warmist climate clowns.

  5. Shooter says:

    Now I hate that word, “debunked”, thanks to alarmists. If they really were “skeptical” (i.e. John Cook) why don’t they consider any contradictory evidence? AGW is not science, as it doesn’t consider any other factors.
