Young Australians should question the climate change fraud

Young Australians should be sceptical of climate change politics

Good news. One in five young Australians rightly think the media is exaggerating the global warming scare. What brave 18 and 19-year-olds. These freethinkers in this Millennial Future poll give hope reason may return. But our schools will try to stop that. Under the idiotic new curriculum planned for them, every year 9 student will be asked to research “examples of young people who are acting as global citizens, such as Greta Thunberg”.
How tragic that schools promote a teenage global warming hysteric but ignore adult scientists who say the world isn’t in danger.
.
Take Steve Koonin, hired by US President Barack Obama as Undersecretary for science to work on plans to stop global warming.
.
Obama had boasted this was “the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow”, but a strange thing happened when Koonin checked the science more carefully.
.
He changed his mind, and has now written: Unsettled: What Climate science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, and Why It Matters.
 

 
Yes, he believes humans have some influence on climate, but last week told me the science is clear: “Most of the extreme weather events that the public and the media are so focused on do not show evidence of human influence.”
.
For instance: “There are no detectable human influences on hurricanes over the last 100 years. In the US, heatwaves, are no more common now than they were in 1900 …
.
“Yes, last year 2020 saw terrible fires in Australia …. but, in fact, 2020 globally was one of the least active fire years on record.”
.
But now another US president, Joe Biden, vows to “stop” global warming.
It’s another fraud.
.
Biden’s Environmental Protection Agency boss was last week asked five times the key question about Biden’s $2 trillion green plan: “How much is it going to lower world temperatures?”
.
And five times Michael Regan refused to say, eventually adding: “I don’t have a figure in front of me.”
.
I’ve had the same non-answer from every politician I’ve asked about their own global warming plans.
.
Kevin Rudd, Tony Abbott, Bill Shorten and Anthony Albanese all refused to say what difference they’d make to the temperature.
.
So, teenagers, be sceptical. See our politicians pretend to fix what they pretend is a crisis, without even pretending to know what good they’d do.
