Part of that is the conflation between two extremely different kinds of climate science.
There is the climate science that says the world is warming. That’s kind of undeniable, along with the correlation between warming and industrialization. So, there’s a tremendous scientific consensus that those are happening.
Where there’s no consensus *at all* is where this will go in 20, 30, 50 years. But the Al Gores of the world state certain future predictions as if they were some sort of fait accompli, which is certainly not the case. Nobody knows where this puts us in the future.
I know why they do this….they hope to create enough terror in the population so that governments are spurred into political action. But as the failed predictions mount up, polling in the US and Europe show mounting skepticism regarding new predictions. Basically, people are no longer listening to the climate alarmists.
This is a very cruel thing, if you think about it. I have a sweet niece in Germany who has fallen for the alarmism lock, stop, and barrel — — to the point that she’s saying that she never wants to have children because she believes it irresponsible to bring them into the world just to be subjected to all this suffering the climate alarmists are talking about.
