For hundreds of years, Western scientists made incredible discoveries and huge contributions to humankind, especially in the fields of medicine and technology. But today, clearly the Western scientific community is nothing more than a clown show pushing propaganda and narratives, as evidenced by a new 'study' published in the once-prestigious journal The Lancet.
As reported by Bloomberg News: "Climate change is making us angrier online. A lot angrier. Hateful comments spike on social media when temperatures rise above 30 degrees Celsius (86 Fahrenheit), researchers at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research have found."
“It’s an indicator of how well people can adapt to high temperatures,” claimed Annika Stechemesser, lead author of the study earlier this month. “If temperatures go too hot or too cold, we found that there’s an increase in online hate speech, no matter the socioeconomic differences, religion or political beliefs.”
“Our results show that if September is particularly hot, we can expect to see more hate on Twitter,” said Stechemesser. "You’ll have more hateful behavior if you find yourself in a certain temperature range. The first thing to do is limit global warming, that’s the most obvious approach to solving this.”
No, this isn't a joke, but it certainly reads like one.
Marc Morano of ClimateDepot.com, which tracks the left's insane 'climate change' claims, said in response to this 'study': "Climate science' has finally jumped the shark! Wacky World of Climate strikes again! This is what passes for 'The Science'! The new mantra from climate activists will no doubt be: 'Support the Green New Deal or you are pro-violence & hate speech!'
"This is Bloomberg News reporting this drivel and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research backing the study, and the once prestigious journal Lancet actually publishing it. This wacky new study in Lancet is at odds with 1941 research showing that people get 'more docile' during warm weather. Maybe 'global warming' is the reason Americans did not push back harder on unscientific and draconian COVID restrictions," he added.
Once again, literally everything either causes climate change or is affected by it, including online attitudes.
What is worse, however, is that the globalist elite are using bogus 'scientific studies' like this one to make all sorts of flaky and dangerous policies, such as ending the use of fossil fuels too quickly before they can be replaced with cheaper, viable alternatives (and it isn't wind and solar).
Noted author Michael Shellenberger, who writes about and tracks this climate nonsense, recently testified before Congress and pushed back on efforts by the Biden regime and the Democrat-controlled Congress to rapidly shift to 'green' energy and electric vehicles at the cost of our current fossil fuel infrastructure.
"U.S. carbon emissions declined 22% between 2005 and 2020, global emissions were flat over the last decade, and weather-related disasters have declined since the beginning of this century. There is no scientific scenario for mass death from climate change. A far more immediate and dangerous threat is insufficient energy supplies due to U.S. government policies and actions aimed at reducing oil and gas production," he testified during a recent House hearing.
"The Biden administration claims to be doing all it can to increase oil and natural gas production but it’s not. It has issued fewer leases for oil and gas production on federal lands than any other administration since World War II. It blocked the expansion of oil refining. It is using environmental regulations to reduce liquified natural gas production and exports," he continued.
"It has encouraged greater production by Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, and other OPEC nations, rather than in the U.S. And its representatives continue to emphasize that their goal is to end the use of fossil fuels, including the cleanest one, natural gas, thereby undermining private sector investment," he added.
In other words, the Biden regime and Democrats are looking to destroy our economy for no good reason other than to push their climate change lie, using our 'scientific community' as cover.
