Global Warming Alarmists Plan to Push Their Agenda Through the Arts and Social Media
America’s global warming alarmists have redoubled their effort this spring to fill the daily news cycle with dire warnings and “doom and gloom” prophecies that the world will come to a sweaty and sticky end unless Congress acts to cut dangerous greenhouse gas emissions.
Typically, these news stories are based on scientific reports filled with numbers and graphs that the average citizen will never read and probably couldn’t understand even if he or she tried.
Alarmists in the United Kingdom understand that scientific reports have limited public relations value, which is why they’re turning to the arts and social media to get their message out to their fellow citizens.
Julia Slingo, a scientist with the U.K’s national weather service, “has called for a radical overhaul of the way climate scientists go about their business, arguing that they need to make their reports less turgid and more engaging,” The Independent reports.
“We have to look increasingly at what society requires of us …,” Slingo said recently to a gathering of leading climate change scientists. “We increasingly recognize that to reach the general public we have to use all sorts of different channels of communication.
“And it’s not through tables and graphs. Sometimes it is through art, through music, through poetry, and storytelling and that is increasingly something we have to think about – how we communicate in a more humanist way.”
Slingo called for a groundswell of “citizen science” in which everyday people use social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to “document” what they see happening in the natural world around them.
It’s the global warming alarmists’ attempt to build a “bottom-up” movement.
The question has to be asked: Why are progressives so intent on making global warming a top political priority?
Some of them truly believe the planet is in imminent danger unless governments take action to curb harmful human activities.
But others are using global warming as a pretext for empowering government leaders to regulate virtually all forms of human behavior, including what we drive, where we live, what we eat – and potentially how many children we may have.
The progressives’ fight against global warming – or whatever they’re calling it this week – is really just their latest, and perhaps most cunning, attempt to gain control over your life.
And if the scientists’ charts and graphs aren’t scaring enough of us into becoming proper little eco-warriors, then they’ll use our favorite TV shows, musicians and movie directors to get us to buy into their agenda.
They’ve already been doing this (remember Kevin Costner’s “Waterworld”?) but it’s going to become more pronounced in the months and years ahead.
