Scientists Fight Climate Doomsday Talk Or Something

I don’t think the vast majority of “climate scientists” have gotten the memo that things aren’t apocalyptic

No obituary for Earth: Scientists fight climate doom talk

It’s not the end of the world. It only seems that way.

Climate change is going to get worse, but as gloomy as the latest scientific reports are, including today’s from the United Nations, scientist after scientist stresses that curbing global warming is not hopeless. The science says it is not game over for planet Earth or humanity. Action can prevent some of the worst if done soon, they say.

After decades of trying to get the public’s attention, spur action by governments and fight against organized movements denying the science, climate researchers say they have a new fight on their hands: doomism. It’s the feeling that nothing can be done, so why bother. It’s young people publicly swearing off having children because of climate change. (snip)

Doomism “is definitely a thing,” said Wooster College psychology professor Susan Clayton, who studies climate change anxiety and spoke at a conference in Norway last week that addressed the issue. “It’s a way of saying ‘I don’t have to go to the effort of making changes because there’s nothing I can do anyway.’”

Ah. So they are not above pitching doom and gloom, they just don’t want all the people internalizing the doom and gloom that’s being pitched to stop trying to Do Something, to say “nah, it’s over, we’ll just live our lives. We don’t need all the taxes and fees and liberty taking government laws and rules.”

Gill and six other scientists who talked with The Associated Press about doomism aren’t sugarcoating the escalating harm to the climate from accumulating emissions. But that doesn’t make it hopeless, they said.

“Everybody knows it’s going to get worse,” said Woodwell Climate Research Center scientist Jennifer Francis. “We can do a lot to make it less bad than the worst case scenario.”

Is it any wonder that so many, especially the Gen Z’s, are just saying “the hell with it?” The Cult of Climastrology scientists and such have scared them so much, have pimped the climate apocalypse so much, that many just see no point in acting. If you’re being told that the company you work for is in horrible shape and there’s zero way to save it, would you fight to save it, even if you love the company? Would you just move on?

“It’s not that they’re saying you are condemned to a future of destruction and increasing misery,” said Christiana Figueres, the former U.N. climate secretary who helped forge the 2015 Paris climate agreement and now runs an organization called Global Optimism. “What they’re saying is ‘the business-as-usual path … is an atlas of misery ’ or a future of increasing destruction. But we don’t have to choose that. And that’s the piece, the second piece, that sort of always gets dropped out of the conversation.”

Perhaps, but, the climate cult has sold the doom so hard that few pay attention to that second piece. And, how many have figured out that the second piece requires all the taxes, fees, and surrendering of liberty and life choices? It seems really popular in theory, but, not practice. You can’t be the leaders in a doomsday cult and not think people will not think the worst. They reap what they sow.

    It’s a climate catastrophe until its not. The left is always the doomsday scenario people. They whined and hollared and screamed bloody murder about everything and anything.

    It worked for awhile until something known as Saul Alinsky became known to the general public and then to follow it up was the strategy of Cloward and Piven of overwhelming the system until it collapses.

    Today they have abandoned Saul Alinsky, except DOWD and are now full blown Cloward and Piven on the USA and the WEST in particular and the world in general. Do not be deceived. The Russians have pulled almost completely out of the UKRAINE today as we speak except for the East which they already controlled.

    The left and DOWD and HAIRY tried to drum up a war to save their political way but the people with a conscience fought back. No wars for US. We know what your doing. We know it was simply another CLOWARD AND PIVEN event in a long line of EVENTS meant to decimate the economies of the world to establish the new world order.

    The NEW WORLD ORDER is not a conspiracy. The World Economic Forum, DIAPER JOE BIDEN AND HIS BAND OF HUGGIES and Justin Trudeau of Canada have all expressed it in speeches.

    Social scores, housing collapse, food shortages, inflation, rising wages that will now never end the cycle of inflation. Hell in 2007 when Nancy Pelosi arose to power in the House the first thing they did was RAISE WAGES by a SINGLE DOLLAR on top of STAGGERING GAS PRICES under the weight of bad house loans and the USA nearly collapsed.

    Today it is much worse, propped up by the fed and their massive printing binge. Make no mistake the fate of Democracy lies in the hands of ANYONE without a (D) next to their name in November. Anyone is better than anyone with a (D) next to their name.

    Because if you have a (D) next to your name you are voting for MASSIVE influxes of illegals to crush the system. You are voting for Crime and violence against Americans. You are voting for Unsustainable wages rising this fast to keep inflation roaring. You are all for destroying Oil and Natural gas and with it the RV industry, the boating industry, the Motorcycle industry, The Militaries ability to defend America from all enemies foreign and domestic.

    So yeah. Its a climate catastrophe of unimaginable depths but IF WE JUST TAX YOU ENOUGH IT CAN ALL BE AVERTED. GO FUK YOURSELVES CLIMATE NAZI’S and please feel free to head on over to China and get that country in line with your “”The worlds gonna end mantra”””

      And in the middle of this Gish Gallop Ranting Screed we find…

      Facts Matter typed: The Russians have pulled almost completely out of the UKRAINE today as we speak except for the East which they already controlled.

      Well of course wingers defend Putin! The Russian army has left Ukraine! What great news!

      Are the pics and videos from Ukraine real or staged? Probably CGI, right? Anyway, little democratic Ukraine is kicking Putin’s ass – so much for the right wing authoritarians great hero. President Zelenskyy rules!!

      • Facts Matter says:


        Glad you see the light DOWD. FACTS MATTER and these are the facts.

        LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL…….DOWD you are a hilarious moron. I think you can’t remember if your posting as Hairy or Dowd.

        How quickly you flip from what I wrote to trying to make me to defend Putin somehow as if I give a shit about the vicious monster that runs Russia.

        IT was you that was slamming your fist on the table for the world to rise up and defend Ukraine while those on the right have become sick of wars waged for political reasons.

        YOU and the left wanted your own war for political reasons to take the heat off of your own failed policies. The left are terrorists who are invading the shores of the USA with Criminals, thugs, drug dealers, MS-13 gang members and rapists.

        BUT I KNOW….LETS DEFEND UKRAINES B O R D E R!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! screams dowd and the left.

  2. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The Doom and Gloom set, who think it’s hopeless, are on the side of the deniers, who think it’s unnecessary! In practical terms, nothing will be done!! Yay!!

    • Doom and Gloom says:

      I said what?

      I am not a denier, I am the restistance. I will fight for a smooth and fair transition to Green. I do not care who makes the money. I don’t care WHICH MEGA BILLION DOLLAR CORPORATION RUN BY LEFTIST GLOBALISTS MAKE THEMSELVES RICH BEYOND ALL AVARICE!!!!

      Nope. I don’t care. I hope that Green wins out and becomes very viable but in the meantime I will fight the AGW movement because I am 100 percent convinced that Russia and China are funding the destruction of the USA for their own ability to rule the world with no one to stand in their way.

      What Canada? New Zealand? Belgium? France? The UK are going to save the world from the evil monsters that kill people for sport?

      No I will fight until I no longer know who I am on a nursing home bed. AGW is a scam. But if that scam leads to a global revolution in energy. FINE….just make it seemless, painless and all will be fine with the world. EVERYONE has SUN and WIND and many have tidal and Hydro and other means to WIN from GREEN energy.

    What’s hopeless is pitching doom and a gloom when there’s no evidence of such. Science is funny that way-when you have evidence of your assertions usually there’s no need to pitch anything- you let the data do the talking. Only thing they have now are computer projections, which aren’t evidence..

  4. Hairy says:

    Sea level rise is expected to rise 2 to 4 feet by 2100 a year which I predict few posters here will be alive.
    Yet Teach, how many times have YOU posted saying that Gore or Obama are hypocrites for buying property that they themselves are trying to convince us might be flooded in the future? When their houses will be not flooded in the next 100 years?
    Sea level rise is not equal everywhere some areas are rising faster than others. It certainly will effect the poorest of humans more than the rich. White people will be effected much less. I am more concerned with the less fortunate humans than in flooding in South FL

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Why are you “more concerned with the less fortunate humans” than we in South FL? Don’t I count or is your racism and classism in the way? You commies are all the same. We taxpayers always come last while the “less fortunate” (read Democrat voters on welfare) are first in line because they contribute so much to society.

      As a fire fighter for twenty years how many people of all ages, sexes and races do you think I ran into burning homes to save? Not to mention their fukin’ pets? Yet you are “more concerned” with the less fortunate. Thanks for your gratitude you worthless POS. God forbid you thank a cop or fire fighter you’d rather thank a democrat voter.

      FJB and all the leftist commies.

      • Doom and Gloom says:

        Hairy lives in Elwoods attic about 498 feet above sea level.

        He is safe so he does not care about mericans. He only cares about what he is taught at the XI school of the Cultural revolution.

    • Jl says:

      Yes, John-seas have been rising for about 20,000 years. And “expected” means, well…it could happen. Or not happen
      “Sea level rise will effect the poorest of humans more than the rich”. And renewable energy being more expensive and less reliable will effect the poor more than the rich. By the way, who has expensive houses on the coast-the rich or the poor?

    Nahhh! It’s the wealthier white people who have the seaside homes. Even Barack Hussein Obama is half-white!

    dOwd the racist: “Sea level rise is not equal everywhere some areas are rising faster than others. It certainly will effect the poorest of humans more than the rich. White people will be effected much less.”

    Sea level rise is not equal therefore, neither are it’s effects. And seas don’t rise according to race.
    The rise will certainly effect the wealthiest and whitest of humans since they are the ones who purchase the waterside homes (like me and I’m not wealthy) in the first world. Similarly, the rich oligarchs, tribal chiefs, kings, and Ayatollahs in the second an third world like their homes next to water too. They may be black or brown or tan but they’re not as stupid as you think they are. They, like us, enjoy nice shit when they can get it. That would include seaside estates.

    If you leftist aren’t dividing people into classes, races, religions, colors, sexes or incomes you don’t know what to do with yourselves.

    FJB with a red hot poker.

    I didn’t type that, you liar, you.

    Mr Dana typed: Nahhh! It’s the wealthier white people who have the seaside homes.

    The wealthy have the largest homes, but hundreds of MILLIONs of working class and poverty stricken folks the world over are threatened. But they can move inland to the deserts or wildfires. No big deal.

    The vile L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! typed: Fuck Joe Biden with a red hot poker!

    Interestingly, an odious local FOX radio asshole made that comment about Parkland HS student David Hogg, and was canceled from his radio AND TV shows! Something unseemly about suggesting the violent rape of a teenager got him canceled! He has resurfaced on another reactionary radio station, “The Patriot”, with the coveted 5 AM slot! The lady-voiced jimhoft was a regular on his old FOX radio show.

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      The increasingly insane Dowd the Red wrote: “I didn’t type that, you liar,you.”

      Yep, I made a mistake and blamed that stupid statement on you only because it sounds like something a moron like you would say. Fortunately, being a leftist commie you immediately called me a liar and dialed it up to eleventeen. So now, like a leftist, I neither need to nor intend to apologize. In fact, fuk you. Had you just said you didn’t say that it was Hairy I would have apologized for my error. Not now shit for brains.

      Wanna talk about rape, dOwd?

      What does an odious FOX radio asshole have to do with anything? Only Pepperidge Farm remembers.

      How’s Hunter doing? Any more charges? I guess drugs, raping underage kids, money laundering and treason are enough for now. There’s a guy with no visible means of support living in a $25k a month Malibu seaside mansion while we taxpayers pay $50k to house his SS contingent next door. What a gig this slime bucket has. You bitch about Trump getting SS protection but Hunter wasn’t even an elected official.

      FJB, and his asshole son. Hahahaahhaa

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Every time you type you make mistakes, or lie. Breitbart reports the house rents for $20K/month and the Secret Service cost in $30K/month, not $50K.

        DonJon’s children and their spouses, all millionaires, also receive taxpayer protection.

        A new analysis of spending by the Secret Service shows that in the six months after former President Donald Trump left office, the agency spent around $1.7 million for the protection of his family, including his four adult children (unelected) and their spouses (unelected), along with three of his former White House officials (unelected).

        The expenditures on these individuals is considered extraordinary, given that the Secret Service typically only grants extra protection to former presidents, their spouses, and their young children (under the age of 16) after they leave office.

        But prior to exiting the White House, Trump ordered the extra protection for his adult children, as well as for former Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and former National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien.

        Hunter Biden hasn’t been charged with any crimes.

        Fuck DonJon, his whore wife and his asshole kids.

  8. James Lewis says:

    “To capture the public imagination, we have to offer up some scary scenarios make simplified dramatic statements and little mention of any doubts one might have.

    Each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective, and being honest.”

    Leading greenhouse advocate, Dr Stephen Schneider ( in interview for “Discover” magazine, Oct 1989)

    Now anyway you cut it that is an invitation to lie. And he didn’t stop there.

    “Dr Stephen Schneider is perhaps the most media-exposed Greenhouse expert, having developed a charismatic speaking style, complemented by his 1970s good looks, and penchant for extravagant claims about impending environmental disaster.

    For example, in a TV interview in 1990 to Britain’s Channel 4, he remarked –

    “The rate of change is so fast that I don’t hesitate to call it potentially catastrophic for ecosystems.”
