    U.S. MEDIA GIVES WAY TOO MUCH AIR TIME TO CLIMATE CHANGE DENIERS WHO DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT, STUDY FINDS

    https://www.newsweek.com/media-air-t...ntists-1454498

    Media outlets reporting on climate change will bring in deniers in an effort to "balance" coverage and present an alternative view. However, to viewers, this then places them—often a person with no scientific background—on the same level as someone who is an expert in the field.

    "It's not just false balance; the numbers show that the media are 'balancing' experts—who represent the overwhelming majority of reputable scientists—with the views of a relative handful of non-experts," study author Professor LeRoy Westerling said in a statement. "Most of the contrarians are not scientists, and the ones who are have very thin credentials. They are not in the same league with top scientists. They aren't even in the league of the average career climate scientist."

    Last year, the U.K.'s BBC was found to have broken accuracy guidelines in 2017 after Lord Nigel Lawson—a known climate change denier—made inaccurate statements that went unchallenged. Following the incident, the broadcaster sent out a memo to staff saying it gets climate change coverage "wrong too often" and that journalists "do not need a 'denier' to balance the debate," the The Guardian reported.
    Shocking.

    Deniers have no expertise, and don't really care what the truth of the science is. Like we needed a study to tell us that? heh. Of course we did. Nerds.

    Neither the advertiser nor the outlet suffers for the educated outrage of the audience: it's a look at me dance, a mere spectacle of controversy contrived for TV or video.

    It's a celebration dance of impunity and scorn but in the end, natural feedback loops will not be mocked; the rate of change will not be mocked.

    minimizers like you will probably live long enough to eat your own words.

    Geological change, historical timeframe. Early indications seem to be the climate models were too conservatative.

    "look at me, I'm a victim"

    Pick a better word, and if you say "skeptic" I am going to reach through your monitor and smack the shit out of you, because the way you approach this topic is shamefully unskeptical.

    you deny evidence.

    you deny ever admitting anything wrong with your shitty arguments

    You deny there is anything wrong.

    Seems to fit pretty well.

    Climate change is probably already lifting your boodle. If we do nothing to mitigate it, the economic and social impacts will be worse.

    Climate change is going to be a huge civilizational cost regardless. "Not my boodle" skeptics like you tend ensure the maximum future impact.

    the BigCarbon/Capitalist anthropocene massive extinction continues

    Alaska's water temperatures have been so hot this summer that salmon are dying off in large numbers

    Salmon are showing up dead in record numbers across Western Alaska this summer, and

    scientists believe it is due to an unprecedented heat wave.

    counted
    “850 dead unspawned salmon on that expedition, although they estimated the total was likely four to 10 times larger.”

    The scientists saw no signs of disease or infections.

    These salmon, they believe, are dying off in record numbers due to the heat.

    Scientists Definitively Debunk the Biggest Climate Change Lie

    not only is the planet
    warming faster than at any time in the last 2,000 years, but

    this unique climate change really does have neither a historic precedent nor a natural cause.

    The only period in which the world’s climate has changed, everywhere and at the same time, is right now.

    The present sustained, ubiquitous warming is unique in that it can be

    coupled directly with the Industrial Revolution,

    the clearing of the forests,

    population growth and

    profligate use of fossil fuels.

    the Nature study clarifies a point of possible confusion.

    There have been changes in modern human history,

    but none of them global and synchronous (happening at the same time).

    They were random fluctuations within the climate system, and

    even
    changes in solar activity or volcanic surges could not affect all of the planet at any one time.

    The peak periods of pre-industrial warm and cold periods occurred at different times in different places.”

    This paper should finally stop climate change deniers claiming that the recent observed coherent global warming is part of a natural climate cycle.

    “This paper shows the truly stark difference between

    regional and localised changes in climates of the past and

    the truly global effect of anthropogenic greenhouse emissions.”

    The show is, collectively, massively more informing on a variety of topics than Fox "news" that hyper-focuses on culture war things that you people think is important.

    What is your take on bail bonds, for example?

    PragerU

    Good example of the kinds of slick propaganda that sounds good to people like you, much like sciency-sounding brochures for magic crystals sounds good to the anti-vaxx crowd.

    What was most amusing is the expert there failed to mention another group of stakeholders in the debate.

    If you watch the video the omission is glaringly obvious.

    Shockingly enough Mr. Lindzen receives a fair amount of funding from this group of stakeholders.

    Who do you think this group is Qhris? Take a guess.

    Funding[edit]

    Two of PragerU's largest donors are the hydraulic fracturing billionaires Dan and Farris Wilks.[7]

    Two members of the Wilks family are on PragerU's board.[7]

    The next-largest donor is the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation.[5][17]

    Other donors include the Morgan Family Foundation,

    Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund, Donors Trust, and

    the Minnesota-based Sid and Carol Verdoorn Foundation, led by former C.H. Robinson CEO Sid Verdoorn.[17]

    The organization has a $10 million annual budget, of which it spends more than 40% on marketing.[7]

    I get it. You can't defend anything. You say that is if I didn't already know that.
