Climate Depot's Morano: "After years of claiming you can't challenge 'the science' they now claim you can't challenge their 'solutions!'"
Via Axios: Gina McCarthy, President Biden's top domestic climate adviser, said tech companies should do more to prevent the spread of inaccurate information about climate change and clean energy.
McCarthy: "The tech companies have to stop allowing specific individuals over and over again to spread disinformation."
McCarthy said the problem of disinformation has shifted from disputing the reality of climate change to inaccurate claims about the feasibility and benefits of moving away from fossil fuels.
McCarthy on how the definition of alleged climate "misinformation" has shifted to climate skeptics challenging whether climate "solutions" actually impact the climate. They are now "seeding, basically, doubt about the costs associated with that and whether they work or not."
HSBC: Stuart Kirk's perfectly reasonable comments: “Who cares if Miami is six metres underwater in 100 years? Amsterdam has been six metres underwater for ages, and that’s a really nice place. We will cope with it,” he said.
According to the WHO’s website, “An infodemic is too much information including false or misleading information in digital and physical environments during a disease outbreak. It causes confusion and risk-taking behaviours that can harm health.”
Climate Staticistian Dr. Matt Briggs: The second grab was creation of the Office of Environmental Justice, under the Department of Justice. There is no such thing as environmental justice. But such a fiction can be defined with respect to The Science (as in “Listen to The Science!”). The Science is research provided by Experts. And Experts, you recall, are educated credentialed important individuals who align with and are supported by the Regime, directly or indirectly. ... The second obvious observation is that these new agencies are two aspects of the same thing: official control of information.
Experts took to Nature, in the peer-reviewed paper “Computer-assisted classification of contrarian claims about climate change“, to show that computers—computers!—can spot wrongthink. “A growing body of scholarship investigates the role of misinformation in shaping the debate on climate change,” the Abstract opens. Growing body. Experts can always be counted on to provide the regime what it needs. They warn that “contrarian” thought “increasingly, has challenged climate policy and renewable energy.” And that “Organized climate change contrarianism has played a significant role in the spread of misinformation and the delay of meaningful action to mitigate climate change.”
Steve Milloy: Today’s elevation is not all that different from the low points of 1956 and 1965 (about 1,090 feet, shown in first graph), especially when you consider the increases in water use and human management of reservoir levels over time. No doubt that drought is affecting Lake Mead. But Western drought is natural (the region is a desert, after all), and Lake Mead was comparably low more than 100 ppm CO2 ago.
Bill Gates, Sir Richard Branson, Hollywood actors, venture capitalists — they’re all pushing lab-grown meat as the solution to world hunger and environmental sustainability, but scientists last week told a panel of experts they have serious concerns about the product’s safety.
