What The Climate Scare And Pandemic Fearmongering Have In Common


Recommended Posts

Issues & Insights

Climate alarmists have said it’s necessary to ratchet up the fear about global warming to get the public’s attention. It’s the same story with the coronavirus outbreak. Authorities wanted to strike fear in the people, so they exaggerated the lethality of a virus deadly to only a narrow demographic segment.

Compare and contrast:


Global warming, 1988. “ We have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have,” about global warming, said Stanford climatologist Stephen Schneider. (In the interest of full disclosure, the entire quotation ends with Schneider saying “each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest. I hope that means being both.” We’re leaving it up to readers to decide if he was advocating dishonesty to further the narrative or telling researchers and activists to cool it with the deceptive rhetoric. Either way, someone was pushing the agitprop.)

Pandemic, 2020. Britain’s Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behavior warned “that ministers needed to increase ‘the perceived level of personal threat’ from Covid-19 because ‘a substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened,’” the London Telegraph reported last year in its coverage of “A State of Fear: How the UK government weaponized fear during the Covid-19 pandemic,” by Laura Dodsworth.

Global warming, 2014. The academics who wrote a paper published in the American Journal of Agricultural Economics said their article “provides a rationale for” the tendency of “news media and some pro-environmental organizations” to accentuate or even exaggerate “the damage caused by climate change.”

“ We find,” they wrote, “that the information manipulation has an instrumental value.”

Pandemic, 2020. The Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behavior recommends the perception of fear regarding the coronavirus needed to “be increased among those who are complacent, using hard-hitting emotional messaging.”:snip:

It Begins: Cambridge Research Paper Pushes 'Authoritarian Power' to Halt 'Climate Change'

First, it was “global warming.” When that didn’t get the job done — it didn’t cover enough weather-related events — they went with the more inclusive “climate change.” And now, “the existential threat of our time.”


Welp, apparently there are still too many “climate deniers” out there, fighting the climate loons climate-conscious folks every step of the way. So what’s the climate-change crowd to do?

According to a recent University of Cambridge research paper, suspend at least part of the U.S. Constitution, implement authoritarian control, and do whatever the hell they want to do. Any questions?:snip:
