$84K study seeks ways to make public fear “climate change and overpopulation”
The National Science Foundation is funding a study to determine how to brainwash the public into fearing “climate change and overpopulation” as if they were Ebola.
The NSF awarded an $84,000 grant to researchers at the State University of New York at Buffalo yesterday to figure out how to make the public fear “climate change and overpopulation” as much as Ebola by analyzing how the public became concerned about a potential large-scale Ebola outbreak in the U.S.
“In addition to the issue-specific value of knowing more about risk perceptions related to the Ebola outbreak, findings from this project will inform the design of communication messages related to risk issues that are often perceived to be psychologically distant by the American public, such as climate change and overpopulation,” the study’s abstract states. “The specific mechanisms through which the study variables influence risk communication behaviors will also inform communication campaigns aimed at encouraging greater public engagement with risk information.”
“In doing so, the proposed research will integrate theory from social psychology and risk communication to explore the utility of psychological distance in informing public communication about emerging public health risks.”
The proponents of “climate change,” many of whom with positions of power within the government, have been facing growing public backlash as more and more evidence disputes “global warming,” so now they are simply trying to brainwash the public into accepting “climate change.”
They want the public to fear “climate change” so they can bilk taxpayers out of not only their money but also their rights.
But more scientists are openly exposing this scam.
“The polar ice is increasing, not melting away,” the co-founder of the Weather Channel, meteorologist Jason Taylor, said in an open letter to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. “Polar Bears are increasing in number.”
“Heat waves have actually diminished, not increased. There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms (in fact storms are diminishing).”
“I have studied this topic seriously for years,” he added. “It has become a political and environment agenda item, but the science is not valid.”
Two other scientists, Tom Harris of the International Climate Science Coalition and Bob Carter of the School of Earth Sciences at James Cook University in Australia, said there’s essentially zero evidence that carbon dioxide from human activities is causing “catastrophic climate change.”
“Yes, the ‘executive summary’ of reports from the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change continues to sound the alarm – but the summary is written by the politicians,” they wrote. “The scientific bulk of the report, while still tinged with improper advocacy, has all but thrown in the towel.”
“And the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change lists thousands of scientific papers that either debunk or cast serious doubt on the supposed ‘consensus’ model.”
Oregon-based physicist Gordon Fulks similarly explained that carbon dioxide has been blamed for a variety of non-existent conditions.
“CO2 is said to be responsible for global warming that is not occurring, for accelerated sea-level rise that is not occurring, for net glacial and sea ice melt that is not occurring … and for increasing extreme weather that is not occurring,” he said.
The fear of “overpopulation” is also largely blown out of proportion to fit a political agenda much like “global warming,” but it too has little scientific evidence.
“… The fertility rate of half the world is now 2.1 or less—the magic number that is consistent with a stable population and is usually called ‘the replacement rate of fertility,’” the Economist reported. “Sometime between 2020 and 2050 the world’s fertility rate will fall below the global replacement rate.”
