Scientists pressured to say ‘everything is a cause of climate change’

Nationals Senator Matt Canavan says it might be necessary to “rekindle the benefits of unorthodoxy” to create an effective government response to climate change.

During Senate estimates a CSIRO official failed to explain why a previous CSIRO finding which said there was no evidence to suggest a link between climate change and bushfires was not found in a recent document explaining the bushfires.

Mr Canavan told Sky News host Chris Kenny it would have been “pretty easy” to include the fact there has been no evidence linking climate change and bushfires in the document.

He said climate change activists however demand “it has all got to be one way” and “everything is a cause of climate change”.

“Scientists sometimes feel that pressure too and are somewhat reticent to put the more complex picture into papers like this,” he said.

“It is very easy to blame climate change and that becomes the orthodoxy and cannot be challenged, yet it leads to some very poor policy decisions.

“Everyone apparently is saying if we shut down coal-fired power stations there won’t be any bushfires in Australia anymore.

“It is absurd but it gets somehow established as gospel in this place.”

The Climate Hoax Transforming Our Society

Australian Wildfire Facts Blocked by IFCN, Poynter and facebook

The horrific Australian wildfires are the result of many causes, not just climate change – and much can be done to reduce wildfire risk through well-researched, well-known mitigation techniques. The public should know this. But Poytner Institute’s ‘fact check’ network and Facebook are preventing the public from learning about wildfire mitigation techniques that were not properly implemented or arsonists who are known to start many wildfires. Poynter Institute claims to be a global leader in journalism and in support of a free press, and democracy. Poynter has partnered with Facebook on a journalism integrity project to supposedly prevent false news from distribution, but instead it is blocking important facts from getting to the public. Poytner set up the “International Fact Checking Network” (IFCN) which is a network of journalists and scientists of various disciplines who are supposed to provide non-partisan and objective review of news items to ensure that false news is not distributed. Based on IFCN pronouncements, Facebook will then demote page quality is a post is deemed to be ‘false news’ (i.e. does not promote climate change as the cause of wildfires). The problem is that Poytner, IFCN, its sub-networks of Science Feedback and Climate Feedback, and Facebook all seem to be stuck in climate dogma. This video summarizes much of the material in Friends of Science Society’s open letter to Poynter and Facebook on this topic. https://blog.friendsofscience.org/202…

Urban Flooding – Rainfall hasn’t increased, so what’s changed?

Paris Climate Accords: Political Sound and Fury Signalling Nothing – Part 2

Dr. John Robson explains why even if all the signatories to the Paris climate change treaty met their targets it would do no good according to the alarmists’ own models, making Paris like the Kyoto Accord all pain and no gain. Which is why signatories are not meeting their targets or even making any significant effort to do so.
