There are numerous reasons for why/how climate science has been hijacted and turned into science snake oil being sold for a political agenda, ratings and especially that other green it makes...........moola.
I won't be able to finish in the brief time that I have right now but must state that I'm an environmentalist, who believes strongly in conservation of natural resources and taking measures to clean up real pollution.
Also, that the physics of CO2 are pretty clear that its a greenhouse gas and is warming the planet by X amount(my guess is that 50% of the 1 deg. C warming has been from the increase in CO2). Nobody can know for sure because its impossible to separate the CO2 warming from the natural warming(which we still don't understand).
However, one side has decided that ALL warming and much of the bad weather is the result of humans emitting CO2. Interestingly, as an operational meteorologist that has been spending most of the day for the past 36 years analyzing global weather, I can say with confidence that the past 40 years have featured the best weather and climate for growing crops and most life on this planet(including humans) in at least the past 1,000 years.
Just knowing that fact and comparing it to what you've been told, should make you very skeptical of the sources and what you've been told.........because the mainstream narrative has got it wrong. Not just a little wrong but as in completely the opposite of right in many cases. This includes what you've been told about the science AND the scientists.
The warming IS causing heavier rains, melting of Arctic sea ice(probably worse wildfires because there is more fuel from CO2 increasing plant growth) and potentially, slightly stronger hurricanes/typhoons...............so I am not what some want to describe me as a "denier" of science or anti science..........just the opposite.
What I deny, is the skill of global climate models to project the weather/climate for the next 100 years, based on a speculative theory that is NOT verifying. My case is simply that we should give greatest weight to observations of what is and has been happening in the real world for the past 40 years vs believing computer simulations that have all been too warm to much too warm.
All I would ask is that the modelers and "some" climate scientists do the right thing. Stop waiting for the real world to catch up to their religious belief from 25 years ago, which is getting farther away........and adjust the mathematical equations in the models so they represent the real world better.
Then, the world governments and media would have to stop using these busted projections to fuel a movement being fraudulently sold as "Save the Planet" in order to generate gains that have nothing to do with saving the planet. Ironically, the best thing that has happened to the planet in the last century, by a wide margin, has been the increase in CO2.
To call CO2, a very beneficial gas..... Carbon pollution would be akin to calling H2O..........Hydrogen pollution. H2O is responsible for over 90% of the greenhouse effect in our atmosphere and, like CO2 contributes greatly to all life.
Carbon, the solid in the form of particulate matter is pollution but that has nothing to do with CO2, which is something completely different.
Now the first point of my explanation.
1. Almost nobody...... 99.999% of people understand climate enough to do their own research to yield an independent, expert view on climate change/global warming. This means everybody must trust the gatekeepers that release that information.
I will explain to you how the entire system got extraordinary corrupted and allowed the gatekeepers to hijack climate science and those in strong positions to reap gains based on how the system was set up.
