Two “important” reruns – how science has been consistently lying to us:
It’s clear (isn’t it?) that both of these posts are still 100% accurate. And so is this one: Contradictions Within Science
I’ve pointed out the fact that we cannot expect much leadership from government on how to manage climate change (mitigate or adapt) because they lack the desire to deal with the real truth. We’ve been badly let down by political leadership (globally). But you should also know that climate scientists are STILL failing in the same realm – they’re still not reporting the whole truth.
Nor have they yet banded together and formed a consortium of demands. Somewhere on this blog I wrote about Real Climate and the request I had made (years ago) for them to unify their voices and demands, and raise a global alarm. It went ignored, twice. Everything I try to get published is ignored. I’ve posted plenty of examples here:
In fact, I have so many of these articles here on this ridiculous ‘reticence’ that I’d have to dedicate several pages to their links. But the point is this: They’re still lying to us. Back when they should have told us the truth about how devastating rising temperatures would be, they didn’t. And back when they should have mobilized and acted, they didn’t.
Almost nobody will lay it out – what we are truly facing. I have – many times, but it doesn’t change a damned thing.
Climate scientists are still not reporting the whole truth. The truth means the end of civilization. And probably their jobs if they were to actually speak the truth, but what would a job matter when you’re going to lose an entire civilization? Peter Wadhams pointed this out: Scientists “too frightened” to tell the truth. There’s been a massive collective failure to speak up and report the whole truth when it was critically important.
Unfortunately, we’re still swimming in a tide of lies at this late hour. We’re not finding hope – just more lies.
Year after year I sit here and document the disturbing trend of dishonesty, disinterest and disbelief on issues that affect all of mankind. And get totally, utterly ignored. Even the readers here do not find it worthwhile to weigh in and make comments. The only support I’ve seen in many years all came from ‘foreigners’ (non-Americans). So I have to ask myself – why bother? Why keep writing at all? Why point out anything? Why even make the this effort? There is zero evidence that there is any benefit to anyone.
I don’t have that answer – until I look into the face of my grandson and bust out into tears. I care about him and his future, and the horrifying disaster we’ve left for all the children of the world. But I appear to be almost entirely alone with this compassion. Americans are too busy trying to hide behind a wall. Or distracted with the Stupid Bowl and who kneeled and who didn’t. Or some other such nonsense.
I’m trying – for him, and for my adult children. But you dear reader – gave up. You don’t support the voices that matter. Maybe the real threat is you.
