Did you know that 11,000 scientists around the world have just declared we are in a climate emergency?
I hope not, because it didn’t happen. But that didn’t stop a great many media – NBC right in there among them – to report it as fact.
From John Hinderaker’s article at powerlineblog.com:
Earlier this week, the world’s news media reported breathlessly that 11,000 scientists had issued a report contending that the Earth faces a “climate emergency.” NBC News, to cite just one example, described a “study” produced by an “international consortium of more than 11,000 scientists.
Actually, there was no study, there was just a press release. And it wasn’t 11,000 scientists, it was 11,000 random people who put their names on a web page. But today’s reporters are so biased and so incompetent that when it comes to “climate change,” they will swallow anything.
I suggest you use the link and see the additional material Mr. Hinderaker provides. It is very worthwhile.
And then you can wonder along with me why, if the climate emergency is real, it is necessary to put out crap like this.
Is climate change real? Maybe so, maybe not. But this is hardly the way to sell it.
