ALARMISM is excessive or exaggerated alarm about a real or imagined threat e.g. the increases in deaths from infectious disease. The alarmist prefers intimidation and coercion to reasoned debate, and is often motivated by the desire to bring themselves to the forefront of discussion.
Climate alarmism can be described as the use of a linguistic repertoire which communicates climate change using inflated language, an urgent tone and imagery of doom.
Alarmism is fundamental to the human induced climate change narrative. Stories of boiling seas, frying cities, disease, famine, tornadoes, floods and hurricanes are the marketing tools used to garner the attention of the masses. Lulling people’s fear into a state of climate guilt, with the aim of pushing policy makers into ‘climate action…now.’
Deep within human nature there are certain types of people who yearn for catastrophe, they yearn to have significance in their lives believing that theirs is the time when the chickens are coming home to roost and everything is going to go tits up. The biggest selling environmental books in history, predict the mass destruction of the planet. Rachel Carson’s 1962 international bestseller “Silent Spring” predicted mass cancer from plant pesticides and DDT. Paul Ehrlich’s “The Population Bomb” 1968, argued on malthusian lines that population explosion would mean mass starvation around the world. People buy this stuff. They lap it up and books like this sell in droves, in a way that more reasonable books that say “hang on, lets look at the facts”, don’t.
Present day alarmists ~ Flannery, Gore, Viner, Hansen have been hopelessly wrong with their predictions and we’ve been gulled into spending trillions of dollars on desal plants, decarbonisation, inefficient/unreliable green energy schemes and draconian climate fixes, for nothing.
A common feature of debates about global warming is that alarmist claims often go unchallenged. At best, criticism is inconsiderate. Worse, critics are portrayed as shills of the fossil fuel industry or climate change ‘deniers’. Labels aimed at discrediting the opponent and shutting down debate.
Importantly alarmism is used to promote a cause where the science and evidence for it is insufficient.
This blog aims to challenge alarmist claims, bringing to your attention the mass circulation of climate and environmental “catastrophe”, served up to you by eco-activists, green lobby groups, progressive politicians, rent-seeking corporatists, grant-driven scientists, fund-driven university departments all pushed pro bono by the climate-theory obsessed mainstream media machine.
Another clue to the tenacity and effectiveness of this particular ‘scientific’ hoax is the name change from “Global Warming” to “Climate Change”.
“Global Warming” can be verified and therefore its hypothesis, “AGW”, nullified via data and empirical evidence.
“Climate change” is useful because it minimises the dangerous possibility of negating the theory through observation. Any kind of change in the weather is “climate change.” That means literally any evidence supports the theory.
If you really want to tick off a scammer, ask him what piece of observable data would lead him to conclude that his climate change theory is incorrect.
Killing The Earth To Save It
Within the climate debate, it is important to understand HOW environmental alarmism and exaggeration is actually damaging the environment, harming emerging economies and shamelessly hurting the poor.
It should also not be underestimated that the United Nations’ war on Carbon Dioxide would devastate humanity, the environment and destroy the poor…tragic outcomes in line with the United Nations’ Malthusian agenda.
See here for a straight forward example of what to expect …
The ultimate prize to the eco-activists and their big government benefactors is the control of carbon, which would touch every aspect of our daily lives. Consequently, greenhouse gases and global climate change are of paramount importance to the eco-activist agenda. While much has been written about global climate change over many years, the basic aspects of the issue haven’t changed; we are asked to forget things we once knew and ignore the simplest hypothesis that the earth’s climate is ever changing.
