Some Scientists Are Trying To Make Us Care About ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

Thirty years of spreading awareness, which includes a goodly chunk of the media being leftists who Believe, and still people do not believe enough to Do Something. They just aren’t willing to give up their modern lives, their liberty, nor see their cost of living skyrocket

How some scientists are trying to get us to care about climate change

Despite life-or-death warnings to curb climate change, the western world isn’t responding as urgently as many climate scientists are hoping.

Rising sea levels and the recent string of record-breaking global temperatures aren’t resonating enough, a conservation scientist and educator said in a phone interview with CTVNews.ca.

“Showing photos of decimated coral reef will tug at your heartstrings, but I’m not sure if it will actually change the way you vote or the choices that you really make,” said Sanjayan Muttulingam, CEO of Conservation International, a non-profit that works to protect natural resources for people’s livelihood and food.

This seems to be confirmed by the alarming admission from scientists that Canada is nowhere close to its own targets in fighting climate change. According to Muttulingam, westerners would change their behaviours if they “fully appreciated how this is impacting their own lives in a real way.”

CTVNews.ca spoke to Muttulingam and a climate change economics professor who both say they’re part of a growing cohort attempting to answer people who are bluntly asking: “Who cares? How’ll this actually affect me?”

And the non-rabid believers, the casual members who have the same beliefs as the hardcores but haven’t transitioned to genuflecting to Al Gore daily, can see that the “solutions” will cause problems in their own lives. Really, it’s something they read about and more on.

They’re hoping to re-frame the scientific conversation by explaining how climate change is ruining the things people love and impacting their personal finances.

“Science isn’t science, until it’s communicated,” Muttulingam argued. But by failing to always put “humans at the centre of the equation,” he believes scientists inadvertently misjudged their audience.

“When it starts hitting our pocketbooks, our jobs, or the health of our children, that’s when you are going to start seeing consumers more willing to act than ever,” he said.

Nice! They’re going to give the “let’s try and scare the crap out of people” talking points a try. Considering they’ve been trying this for 30 years, I don’t think it’s going to work.

    They’ll have to work hard to persuade people that what the warmunists want to do will “(impact) their personal finances” less than whatever changes global warming climate change will have. Even in much more liberal France, the gilet jaunes are are protesting what high government taxes to fund ridiculous programs, while voters in Washington state, a mostly Democratic state, voting in an election which Democrats mostly won, still turned down higher taxes to fight global warming climate change.

    Everyone is for fighting global warming climate change . . . right up until it hits them in the wallet.

    So… to sum it up. A guy who makes a living as a climate activist, is being a climate activist. Did I leave anything out?

  3. StillAlive says:

    The Case Orange report cites a number of US patents for the invention of a “Specific contrail generation apparatus for producing a powder contrail having maximum radiation scattering ability for a given weight of material. The seeding material consists of 85 percent metallic particles and 15 percent colloidal silica and silica gel in order to produce a stable contrail that has a residence period of up to 1 to 2 weeks.”

    Then in 2009, the publication of a report entitled “Modification of cirrus clouds to reduce global warming” put the case for further geo-engineering strategies.

    Obama during his 8 years in office conspired with the UN to Spray the atmosphere with chemicals that have not been studied in depth.

    The UN enlisted in geoengineering military combat against climate
    In 2007, The World Meteorological Organisation (of the United Nations) published a statement that included “Guidelines for Planning of Weather Modification Activities.” This document clearly implicates the UN in plans to conduct aerosol spraying activities on a wide scale.

    While you sleep the UN is spraying the atmosphere to control the weather. They believe that mankind can spray the atmosphere and cool down the planet. So insane are these people that funding needs to be pulled from the UN. PERIOD.

    They have no idea what they are doing. And they are doing this as the world enters a grand solar minimum which is highly likely to see a mini-ice age and now the UN is helping the ice age by artificially cooling the atmosphere and given one Mt. Pinatubo in the next 20 years will see this world plunged into chaos and global ice age and not just geographically specific.

    The left is INSANE.

    Is this the Case Orange report (2010) you reference?

    Can you document your two statements below?

      He will when you will.

      PS Jeffery’s finally gotten over pouting because all he got this year was coal in his stocking.

      Again.

      • Jethro says:

        And we assume you believe that the US and UN are distributing mind-altering, climate modifying chemicals through airliner and military aircraft “chemtrails”, too. Yet, conspiracy-addled right-wingers can’t accept that the gov’t, corporations and wealthy have conspired for decades to take your productivity and money for their own. They promise to end abortion, corral the Blacks, Mexicans, Muslims and gays, and all they expect from you is your unwavering support, your soul, your dignity and your spirit…

        PS You whine like a spanked titty-baby when I correct your chaff and even when I don’t. Obsess much? No ideas of your own?

        • formwiz says:

          Certainly sounds like Zippy. The program didn’t have to work or even be implemented. All it had to do was be discussed.

          Kind of like Fast&Furious or Benghazi.

          Only those really happened.

          PS All I do is point out Jeffery’s contradictions. He’s the one who wines about being caught.
