Don’t fall for the big lies

The Island Packet - - Opinion -

There is a say­ing that if you tell a lie of­ten enough even­tu­ally peo­ple will be­lieve it. Such as Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump con­spir­ing with the Rus­sians to fix the 2016 elec­tions.

The cur­rent big lie that has now gone world­wide is that global warm­ing (aka cli­mate change) is caused by an in­crease in car­bon diox­ide in the at­mos­phere. Even if there is an in­crease in car­bon diox­ide, there is no sci­en­tif­i­cally proven causal re­la­tion­ship. While many sci­en­tists be­lieve it, not one has been able to sci­en­tif­i­cally prove it. Not one!

It is also cu­ri­ous that those who pro­fess that oceans will flood cities and man-made global warm­ing will de­stroy our en­vi­ron­ment, they all seem to ap­pear in the left-lean­ing main­stream me­dia. While sci­en­tists who be­lieve that man­made cli­mate change in sci­en­tif­i­cally un­proven, they only ap­pear in the right-lean­ing me­dia, such as The Wall Street Jour­nal. This leads one to be­lieve that the is­sue is more about pol­i­tics than science.

We know that the cli­mate has al­ways changed and will change in the fu­ture. So why are many in the world will­ing to po­ten­tially de­stroy economies on the false premise of man-made cli­mate change?

There is also an­other cu­ri­ous point of view. Those peo­ple who, like me, be­lieve that man­made cli­mate change is false are ridiculed by the left as “deniers.”

Please do not be­lieve this cur­rent lie un­til it is sci­en­tif­i­cally proven that cli­mate change is in­flu­enced by man-made causes. “Deniers” of the world unite!
