Parker Crutchfield, an Associate Professor of Medical Ethics, Humanities and Law at Western Michigan University: "...a solution would be to make moral enhancement compulsory or administer it secretly, perhaps via the water supply." ... "Like receiving a vaccine to beef up your immune system, people could take a substance to boost their cooperative, pro-social behavior." ...
"These substances interact directly with the psychological underpinnings of moral behavior […] Then, perhaps, the people who choose to go maskless or flout social distancing guidelines would better understand that everyone, including them, is better off when they contribute, and rationalize that the best thing to do is cooperate." ...
"Another challenge is that the defectors who need moral enhancement are also the least likely to sign up for it […] a solution would be to make moral enhancement compulsory or administer it secretly, perhaps via the water supply." ... "But a strategy like this one could be a way out of this pandemic, a future outbreak or the suffering associated with climate change."
Kit Knightly: This isn’t just a panicked response to an unforeseen emergency, Crutchfield’s area of bioethics research focuses on “questions like how to induce those who are noncooperative to get on board with doing what’s best for the public good”, and a look through his articles reveals that this is an agenda which pre-dates our current “pandemic”.
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.”
Nye testifies to the House Homeland security committee at Congress about climate change on June 8, 2021
Bill Nye Excerpt of his testimony: "Climate change is frightening. The effects and changes are so big and coming so fast that many of us are in denial about the consequences. I’ve come to believe that climate change contrarians especially are just scared. So am I. You’ve probably read recent reports concerning decreasing birth rates worldwide. Ask around. Women and men everywhere are thinking twice about bringing kids into a world that’s on fire. It’s time to take action now."
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."
Paul Homewood: "It is absolutely clear that the number of strong tornadoes has declined since the 1970s. Alarmingly, however, this page has been 'disappeared', and the link now comes up with this:
Fortunately Wayback still has a copy of the original web page, and I also have it on file. It is blindingly apparent that NOAA found their original assessment far too inconvenient, something that should be kept out of the public domain at all cost."
Climate chauses wind speeds to decrease...Except when climate change causes wind speeds to increase...
Claim: Atmosphere expert Professor Paul Williams, of the University of Reading, told the Financial Times that winds have ‘generally weakened over land over the past few decades’. He said one explanation for plummeting wind speeds could be ‘human-related climate change’, that would see poles warming ‘faster than tropics in lower atmosphere’ areas. Prof Williams said: ‘This would have the effect of weakening the mid-latitude north-south temperature difference and consequently reducing the thermal wind at low altitudes.’
