Climate Change: Concord Monitor Claims “Effects have Exceeded our Worst-Case Scenarios”

Ottmar Endenhofer - Climate Polic is about economics

Talk about low-hanging fruit. Over at the Concord Monitor, the Granite-Geek feature has a blurb on Climate that is so blatantly false that it begs our attention. And it has it.

I first used the words “climate change” in a story in the late 1990s and it has been a regular part of my reporting since. How could it not? It’s a great story, and journalists love great stories. And it has only become a better* story over time, as the effects have exceeded our worst-case scenarios. That’s why journalism as a whole is ramping up its coverage of the topic.

Have you, by chance, covered any of these great stories? Forty-one examples of climate alarmism by so-called experts that were completely wrong.

I believe there are more.

Given this reality how can you say (with a straight face) that the storyhas only become a better* story over time, as the effects have exceeded our worst-case scenarios.”

You’re 0-41 on this list of worst-case scenarios. When are we going to see some reporting on that?


Because the effects have exceeded folks are all in on a deliberate fraud meant to shift America and the world away from free-market capitalism and toward global socialism. The only “sciences” involved are political and economic.

Don’t deny it, your own experts agree. This was always a socialist economics project.

“… the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”

Christiana Figueres, then executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change is not the only ‘expert’ to admit this openly.

Sounds like a great story. Where can I read your reporting on that?

Too busy scaring kids into giving up their future, freedoms, and their incomes to an all-powerful state based on a lie whose failures are stories you never shared?

Are you proud of what you are doing because I think it’s disgusting. And it sure as hell isn’t journalism. But it is a “story.” We call it fiction.
