Democrat presidential candidates have been using doomsday scenarios to scare congregants of the church of climate change into voting for them. In their first two debates going into the primary, the candidates warned that made human-made climate change is the most important issue of our time.
Reason reported on the Democratic Party presidential primary debates – Unless the United States solves the problem of man-made climate change in the next 12 years—or maybe 10 years—it’s game-over for humanity. At least that’s what viewers for the two CNN Democratic presidential debates might take away from urgent declarations made by various candidates. Let’s go the transcripts.
In the first Democratic presidential debate, former Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke declared, “I’ve listened to the scientists on this, and they’re very clear. We don’t have more than 10 years to get this right.” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (MA) warned that the “climate crisis is the existential crisis for our world. It puts every living thing on this planet at risk.”
But wait, there was more! “By 2030, we will have passed the point of no return on climate,” claimed Montana Gov. Steve Bullock. South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg said that “science tells us we have 12 years before we reach the horizon of catastrophe when it comes to our climate.”
Sen. Kamala Harris (D–Calif.) stated that “we must have and adopt a Green New Deal. On day one as president…I would re-enter us in the Paris agreement. And put in place [policies] so we would be carbon neutral by 2030.”
While they didn’t set a climate doomsday deadline during the debate, Sen. Kristen Gillibrand (D–N.Y.) did declare that “the greatest threat to humanity is global climate change,” and Sen. Cory Booker (D–N.J.) stated that “everything must be sublimated to the challenge and the crisis that is existential, which is dealing with the climate threat.”
Petteri Taalas, secretary-general of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is warning radical climate alarmists to stop threatening people with end of the world scenarios.
Epoch Times – On September 6th, Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization, Petteri Taalas, issued an unprecedented rebuke to climate alarmists in an interview published by a Finnish magazine.
During his interview with Talouselämä magazine, Taalas called for a calm and rational approach to the climate debate and disagreed with those who are promoting end-of-the-world scenarios.
“Now we should stay calm and ponder what is really the solution to this problem,” Taalas told Talouselämä magazine. “It is not going to be the end of the world. The world is just becoming more challenging. In parts of the globe, living conditions are becoming worse, but people have survived in harsh conditions.”
The WMO and the United Nations Environment Programme created the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 1988. Since then, the IPCC has become the leading institution worldwide to promote the theory that human activity contributes to global warming.
Taalas said that while skepticism of the human-activity theory has abated in recent years, climate scientists are under increasing assault from radical climate extremists.
“While climate skepticism has become less of an issue, now we are being challenged from the other side. Climate experts have been attacked by these people, and they claim that we should be much more radical. They are doomsters and extremists; they make threats,” Taalas said.
