Hiring a lukewarmer Bret Stephens by The NY Times to cover the climate debate is too little, too late. But he referred to an article by Andrew Revkin who had been a regular NYT climate alarmist. In this article My Climate Change, published in a small website issues.org more than a year ago, Revkin admitted to the alarmism, organized pressure, and more.
The main quotes:
“I saw a widening gap between what scientists had been learning about global warming and what advocates were claiming as they pushed ever harder to pass climate legislation or strengthen the faltering 1992 climate change treaty.”
“In 2006, I was part of a team of reporters at The Times that undertook a multi-year series called “The Energy Challenge” (nytimes.com/energychallenge), examining what it would take to deeply cut reliance on coal, oil, and gas, and move to climate-friendly technologies. The deeper we dug, the more we ran into enormous disconnects between the data and the claims. It was very clear that any transition to clean energy would be neither simple nor quick—and it wasn’t only for lack of political will.”
“In a radio interview I heard some years ago a BBC employee recalls his first day of work at the media establishment. An experienced colleague-mentor led him upstairs and out onto the roof. The two of them then stood together on the edge of the roof and urinated down on the people many floors below at ground level. (They were both male BTW.) This, the mentor explained was an important rite of passage impressing on a new employee the correct BBC attitude to hold towards the general public.” Continue reading BBC Pisses on the Public, Kisses up to Warmists→
It’s no secret that formerly respectable and mainstream media outlets have become fake news purveyors. Whatever it is that drove journalists to lie and manipulate, the evidence exists to prove their intent to deceive.
Much like television commercials and print advertisements, news stories are written to sell the reader something. Many times, what the news outlets are selling is politically motivated. On almost any given topic they choose to cover, they’ve been seen to cherry pick quotes that are in line with their interests and agendas, to omit relevant information that may harm their stand on something, and to use language that falsely imputes guilt on Republicans and conservatives.
In September 2016, WaPo published an article with the title: “Scientists published climate research under fake names. Then they were caught.” The subject of the article was one of the lesser known cases of suppression of climate dissent in formerly respectable peer-reviewed journals; suppression that’s supported by a formerly respectable media. That case clearly shows the impossibility for dissenters from climate alarmism orthodoxy to publish in scientific journals.
The Washington Post’s reaction is an expression of its contempt for free speech, which includes the use of pseudonyms. Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay wrote The Federalist Papers under the pseudonym (or the “fake name” according to WaPo) Publius. In The Federalist Papers they advocated ratification of the Constitution, seemingly another object of the WaPo contempt.
The media blackout of what looks like an act of climate terrorism, continues.
Following the ridiculous “March for Science,” at which third-rate performers and copywriters pretended to be scientists, unidentified shooters opened fire at the office of Dr. John Christy. Dr. John Christy and Dr. Roy Spencer (who both work in the same building) are two of the prominent scientists who developed measurement methodology and have been maintaining the only truly global temperatures record — the satellite temperatures dataset.
Listed below are 15 lies in this NYT article . This is after the article was corrected on March 4, 2017, two days after it was originally published.
The article’s title is: “Top Trump Advisers Are Split on Paris Agreement on Climate Change”
Lie #1. Trump advisors are not split on the Paris agreement. The U.S. is not a part of the Paris agreement because this agreement has not been ratified by the Senate. All parties of the Paris agreement knew that Obama’s signature did not bind the U.S. Whether the Trump administration repudiates or just ignores that agreement is hairsplitting. Besides, having different opinions is normal. Only Obama’s administration was a single-opinion government. Next: Continue reading How many Lies can one New York Times Article Contain?→
Communazi — a leftist who adopted ideology of racial and/or ethnic hatred.
FSM — Fakestream Media. Former mainstream media, except for the Fox News.
Pluto-Communism — a shared goal of the far Left and Silicon Valley plutocrats, supporting it. Pluto-Communism combines features of conventional communism (use of three-letter organizations against the opposition, silencing dissenting speech, impoverishing workers, and persecution of traditional religions) with forced transfer of the wealth to selected plutocrats, supporting the Pluto-Communist ideologue. Because suppression of speech and violation of other inalienable rights of citizens is conducted through plutocrat-owned corporations, some people are slow to recognize that such regime is anti-Constitutional. The Obama administration has moved us halfway toward this goal.
The long-observed phenomenon of newsmaking – where the media is creating events instead of reporting them – has long been in existence.
In a recent example, a team of Democrat staffers and journalists launched a national campaign against elected Republican Congress attempting to hit them where it hurts – in their states and electoral districts. The gist of the campaign is to appear as members of a grassroots movement of dissatisfied citizens, rather than a Democrat-organized attack. Examples from the campaign guide (bold font is original; red highlighting is mine): Continue reading When newsmakers talk of “GOP’s delusions”→
The fake news networks (FNN) widely reported a demonstration of about 150 alleged tech workers against President Trump in connection to the immigration order. The photos from the demonstration show massive presence of UNITE HERE! – an extremist union whose captive membership consists mostly of unqualified workers.
I appreciate the sacrifice of these tech workers (if there are any; see the fake scientists demonstration) for the sake of profits of their employers who advocate unrestricted immigration from low-wage countries that replace American tech workers.
Apparently, producers and editors of the leftstream TV channels lost ability to distinguish fiction from reality. Such TV genres as reality shows, environmentalist propaganda, and the liberal drivel in general blend reality and fiction in various ways. Combined with echoes of academic postmodern contructivist theories, this leads to the current post-truth reporting. Alternatively, the leftstream TV expresses contempt to its viewers. Whatever the cause, the fictional character “Bill Nye the Science Guy” has been presented as a real scientist on ABC, CBS, MSNBC, and CNN.
If you watch news on any of these channels, these might be fake news. New York Times has called this actor “the science guy” as well. Bill Nye receive BS in mechanical engineering in 1977 and worked as an engineer for some years after that. By 1993 his engineering gig was over. He has been an actor and a “TV personality” for the last 20 – 25 years. He can be called a former engineer, if it helps.
Wikipedia was hit by a scandal in 2009 when the public learned that William Connolley, a British Green Party politician and avid climate alarmist, was a Wikipedia administrator using his privileges to push climate alarmism while simultaneously suppressing dissenting voices. In addition to this, he personally edited more than 5,000 Wikipedia articles related to climate change debates. Wikipedia revoked his administrator’s privileges and the scandal has since dissipated.
