“On the one hand, as scientists we are ethically bound to the scientific method. On the other hand, we are not just scientists, but human beings as well. And like most people, we’d like to see the world a better place, which in this context translates into our working to reduce the risk of potentially disastrous climatic change. To do that we need to get broad-based support, to capture the public’s imagination. That, of course, entails getting loads of media coverage. So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements, and make little mention of any doubts we might have.”
That’s a quote by Stephen Schneider, global-warming advocate and member of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Interestingly, he was one of the scaremongers of the 1970s who said Earth was headed for a calamitous ice age.
See, liberal policymakers are scaremongers. They can only achieve their agenda by spreading fear (and if this doesn’t work, they use the courts to overrule the people’s votes).
Another example of their scaremongering:
The IPCC…[asserted] in its 2007 report that Himalayan glaciers would likely melt by 2035 due to man-made warming. This prompted great alarm across southern and eastern Asia, where glaciers feed major rivers. As it turned out, the bogus claim was traced to a speculative magazine article authored by an Indian glaciologist with no supporting science behind it, who also worked for a research company headed by IPCC’s chairman. The report’s author admitted “We thought that if we can highlight it, it will impact policymakers and politicians and encourage them to take action.”
Liberals: Spreading Fear With Your Tax Dollars.
