LYING ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE TO ADVANCE THE RED-GREEN AGENDA IS GOOD

PEER-REVIEWED PAPER: 

Lying about climate change to advance the environmental agenda is a good idea, say two economists in a peer-reviewed paper published in the American Journal of Agricultural Economics.

Don’t have to ‘believe.’ Here is the actual PEER-REVIEWED paper …

Information Manipulation and Climate Agreements

AbstractIt appears that news media and some pro-environmental organizations have the tendency to accentuate or even exaggerate the damage caused by climate change. This article provides a rationale for this tendency by using a modified International Environmental Agreement (IEA) model with asymmetric information. We find that the information manipulation has an instrumental value, as it ex post induces more countries to participate in an IEA, which will eventually enhance global welfare. From the ex anteperspective, however, the impact that manipulating information has on the level of participation in an IEA and on welfare is ambiguous.

Tim Blair:

Wild-eyed warmist Bill McKibben calls for a climate scientist strike:

STRIKE! STRIKE! STRIKE!

At this point it’s absurd to keep asking the scientific community to churn out more reports. In fact, it might almost be more useful if they went on strike: until you pay attention to what we’ve already told you, we won’t be telling you more …

Down tools, warmist workers of the world!

Because it’s perfectly clear by now that you can’t scare politicians with the news that the world is ending.

McKibben’s piece was published by MSNBC, which evidently is comfortable running his line about the end of the world. Leftist media is now deeper than ever in crazy old man territory.

As for the strike, go for it. Let’s make it global. Australian taxpayers will be grateful for the savings.

UPDATE. The strikers will have to stop lying.

Want to be a “climate scientist”? Well you can be within a week. Simply write a paper on the weather or whatever, have it peer-reviewed, then publish it in some dodgy Green journal and voila!  You’re a “scientist!” Now you can start reporting your conclusions to the UN’s IPCC about how we are all about to die of sun stroke while drowning in high tides at the same time. They are looking forward to hearing from you

  1. Whoops! Was that a little Freudian slip in there? “to participate in an IEA, which will eventually enhance global welfare.”

    Translation: they mean to create a new global welfare system, where we, the producers are penalized with a greater level of taxation on our income and wealth, whilst our wealth is forcibly extorted into government coffers to be used against us for objecting to the Neocommunist agenda. And a few pennies are thrown at the worlds poor and ne’er do well parasites (read: voting blocs ) just to give the appearance that the worlds governments care and are allegedly doing something to eradicate poverty.

    There was a time when peer review meant something in academia and science. Liberals ruin everything!

    Mediocrity here we come.
