Climate Risky Business

Ron Clutz takes a closer look at some of the machinations of climate alarm propagandists in their endless attempts to manipulate public opinion.

Science Matters

A new theme emerging out of the IPCC Fifth Report was the emphasis on selling the risk of man-made climate change. The idea is that scientists should not advocate policy, but do have a responsibility to convince the public of the risks resulting from burning fossil fuels.

An article illustrates how this approach shapes recent public communications in support of actions on global warming/climate change.  Treading the Fine Line Between Climate Talk and Alarmism (Op-Ed)  By Sarah E. Myhre, Ph.D. | June 23, 2017.  Excerpts:

What is our role in public leadership as scientists? I would suggest a few action items: Work to reduce risk and cost for the public; steward the public’s interest in evidence; and be steady and committed to the scientific process of dissent, revision and discovery. This means communicating risk when necessary. We would never fault an oncologist for informing patients about the cancer risks…

  1. Stephen Richards says:

    Risk management is about understanding risks both impact and probability. That requires being able to show conclusively that risks are quantifiable. Usually we do that with experts who are able to show proof of impact and probability.

    Climate science has never been able or willing to do that.

  2. The true climate picture and why/how the climate changes.

    I agree with this video 100%

    By the way global cooling has now begun and should continue for many years.

    I might add the weakening geo magnetic field will compound given solar effects , an area of neglect
    Another area of neglect are thresholds . For example in the video it brings out the point that low cloudiness increases around 2% when cosmic rays have increased to x levels in the past.

    My thought is what if cosmic ray levels increase beyond the levels they attained in the past. Could that create a threshold for cloud formation that might increase low cloudiness by much greater amounts then the 2% which has occurred in the past?.

  3. The mainstream is oblivious to the two videos I have presented. They ignore this completely and talk about the pathetic AGW theory which is in a word is WRONG!

    Yes, these empaths can hear the earth screaming.
