The media’s climate fearmongering doesn’t help anyone

In an era of sensationalism and clickbait headlines, the media’s portrayal of all hot weather as a sign of end times adopts an apocalyptic tone.

Each scorching summer is touted as further evidence of an impending climate catastrophe with little room for nuance or objective analysis. Lost in the hyperbole is the inconvenient truth that cold weather actually poses a far greater threat to human life than heat waves do.

In other words, no, we’re not all going to burn up this summer — and in fact, more of us might survive next winter.

Contrary to popular media efforts to make a bogeyman out of warmth, humans possess physiological protections and have made behavioral adaptations that enable them to withstand and even thrive in warm weather.

I believe I heard on the radio that the buoy reading in FL was BS? The reading was in a lagoon and not the ocean? Anybody else hear that?

Is someone hinting to Deep State that the populace is no longer drinking the climate change kool-aid...?

"The media’s climate fearmongering doesn’t help anyone."

Well, it's doing wonders for Al Gore's bank account.

FALSE! Climte scare mongering is one of the pillars of Democrat support along with abortion and racsism. They will bang the gong every day over these 3 pillars.

Climate is what it is, deal with it. Fortunately, the Good Lord made mankind a highly adaptable species, with a vast curiosity and capable of ingenious solutions to problems, well able to deal with whatever slings and arrows fate and the Evil One may hurl at them.

Changing weather patterns are but one of the tests thrown up to challenge mankind and force further adaptation, but there are those who mistake challenges for crisis, and make some inappropriate response, creating even more chaos and mischief, eventually leading to endless misery.

But since people do not seem to have enough adversity in their lives, it is incumbent that new mischief must be invented.

“They will bang the gong every day over these 3 pillars.”

That’s right now. There is a steady paycheck for people to create obstacles to strike fear into voters. Communism, terrorism, the bomb, starvation or pain, financial know, the sky is falling.

But these are tools, not fears. In a nutshell, here’s a list of things that have been mainstays in the government’s herding of the cattle for many years:

1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people
2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.
3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.
4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.
5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).
6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in school.
7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.
8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

You’ll find them under Alinsky’s rules for radicals. And people fall for them every time. Both sides of the aisle have people designated to scare people (goons). And both sides point fingers at the other side. This tactic is not new and has been used since our creation as a country. Before that, it was everywhere else.

Fact is a jewel. Lies are a meadow muffin. Jewels are hard to find and that’s why they are expensive. People are always stepping in meadow muffins even though they could walk around them. It’s just people and we are still frightened animals that hid in caves. It takes time to not be afraid of fire. We haven’t reached that yet and haven’t even determined who the predators are. And you’re right, the predators know that.

They love “climate change” because weather is so unpredictable. Seriously, unless you live in Southern California, how many “10” days do you actually get per year. So all the other 70-90% non perfect weather days can be blamed on climate change.
