No, Being a Climate Change Skeptic Isn’t Like Fearing Vaccines

Stephen Moore — The Daily Signal — March 22, 2015

National Geographic’s latest cover story generated lots of attention for comparing climate change skeptics to those who fear vaccinations, disbelieve NASA’s moon landing, and oppose water fluoridation.

The author bemoans the fact that only 40 percent of Americans (according to Pew Research Center) “accept that human activity is the dominant cause of global warming,” asking how so many “reasonable people doubt science.” Dubbing climate change one of the “precepts of science,” the author opines that climate change skepticism is “dispiriting” for anyone considered a “rationalist.” How could so many dismiss “settled science”?

Actually, there’s a healthy reason that the public has come to distrust government warnings and the scientific experts: they are often wrong.

Ironically, National Geographic’s sermon on settled science could have hardly come at a more inopportune time. In recent months, leading scientists have reversed themselves and have admitted their expert findings and advice were wrong on eating fat. After decades of telling us not to do so, we now learn that fat can be good for your diet and for weight loss. What we all thought to be true based on the expert testimonies, turned out to be precisely the opposite of the truth. Oops.  Continue reading here….

    I’ve been a subscriber to National Geographic for maybe 40 years. After seeing this issue, it goes directly to the recycle bin and won’t be renewed. It was getting thinner and thinner and harder to read due to a huge increase in advertising and missing page numbers. This was the last straw.

    Thanks for sharing this article.

    I’ve been part of an ever growing body of people who are in pursuit of truth. For me, it started shortly after Sept. 11th, 2001. This has not been easy because of the disillusionment I’ve had to process as i’ve sifted through the plethora of lies and deception to get to the truth.

    I’ve spent the winter following the conversations on wattsupwiththat. I’ve also been following climatologist, Judith Currie’s blog. Stephen Moore’s article affirms all of what I’ve learned. The scale of the IPCC fraud and its ramifications for the world is enormous..perhaps unprecedented in human history in terms of the damage. The list of complicit players who have been nothing more than opportunists is long. One day soon, these ‘green’ zealots will all be fully exposed.

    The connection between the IPCC fraud and Agenda 21 needs to be fully exposed in order for us to rescue rural Ontario from industrial wind turbines.

    And yes…I’ve decided to boycott the liars. We all need to.

      My apologies for spelling Judith Curry’s name incorrectly!

    Rosa Koire explains Agenda 21, in a nutshell, for Canadian viewers.
