Climate Feedback engaged several climate-alarmist scientists to write reviews of Stossel’s video. Stossel claimed he reached out to all of those reviewers but only one, Patrick Brown of San Jose State University, agreed to discuss his review with Stossel. “Brown didn’t like that these scientists said that America can adjust to rising sea levels by doing things like building dikes to hold water back like Holland has,” Stossel said on a video responding to the censorship. Brown was especially vexed at the completely accurate claim that sea levels have been slowly rising for millennia. “To me, when I watch that video, what I hear is that sea levels have been rising at a pretty constant rate forever, it’s very small, it’s not a big deal and we will … adapt,” Brown said. “That’s not the mainstream view.” ...
Climate Feedback labeled this claim “misleading,” although even Brown told Stossel, “That’s true. We don’t see a change in hurricane frequency.” “I think that’s wrong that you were criticized for saying that,” Brown told Stossel. “The IPCC, they don’t claim that [hurricanes] are increasing, they don’t claim that droughts are increasing, they don’t claim that floods are increasing.” Brown would later e-mail Stossel and say, “The problem is the omission of contextual information rather than specific ‘facts’ being ‘wrong.’ Brown conceded, “It’s a tonal thing, I guess.”
This project uses bots to interact with news articles about climate change in an attempt to help make those articles more visible. According to the website's description, every day these bots search for climate change news, and then 100 bots will visit each article and click on every ad. You can also see a list of all the articles that the bots are reading, in case you wanted to visit them too.
Koonin told Climate Depot on June 3, 2021: "I attach a response that I submitted yesterday to Scientific American. Not surprisingly, they declined to publish it."
Koonin: "To paraphrase a statement attributed to Einstein, 'If I were wrong, it wouldn’t take a dozen scientists to disprove me - one would be sufficient.' As I write in Unsettled, I welcome serious, informed discussion of any of the points I raise in the book. Unfortunately, the article by Oreskes et al. falls well short of that standard."
Ben Santer "said he is cutting ties with a prestigious government-funded laboratory over its plans to invite a scientist who has spread climate denial to speak in a seminar. ... Santer, who is affiliated with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, sent out an emailed statement viewed by Earther and first published by the Union of Concerned Scientists in protest of a planned LLNL seminar with Steve Koonin, a well-known climate denier whose new book on how climate science is “unsettled” has attracted widespread praise from right-wing media and condemnation from basically everyone else."
"According to Nye, both him and Mann are frequently asked two common questions: “What can I do about climate change,” and “What can be done to convince someone who’s a climate denier?” Nye calls these the $10 trillion questions, because climate deniers are so “dug in” to their beliefs, which only makes it harder to convince them of what the science suggests.
The only definitive way to see significant action to prevent climate change is to simply wait for deniers and contrarians to “age out,” according to Nye. “There’s an old saying — ‘science proceeds one funeral at a time,’” Nye said, “but it’s not happening fast enough.”
