While Greta Thunberg was being hailed as a “savior” of mankind all across the mainstream media and social media outlets for her impassioned U.N. climate speech, there was basically no media coverage that a group of prominent scientists and engineers petitioned U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to pursue sound science in climate policy research. The researchers stated that many leading climate models are “unfit.”
AND Magazine staff conducted Google and DuckDuckGo searches that revealed this news was not found on MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS or FOX. Nor did we see it reported in The Washington Post or the New York Times. (Apologies if we missed it, but they did not show up in the first three pages of either of the above search results, so if it was published but did not show in those searches then maybe we should also be discussing bias in Google search engine results).
Real Clear Politics stated: “A network of scientists and professionals attempted to inject reasonableness into what should be a robust discussion about a complex issue: climate change” (sic), with a link to an article from the Epoch Times, which discussed the U.N. petition in more detail.
As reported from The Washington Times
“Current climate policies pointlessly and grievously undermine the economic system, putting lives at risk in countries denied access to affordable, reliable electrical energy,” said the Sept. 23 letter signed by professionals from 23 countries.
Most of the signers hailed from Europe, but there were also scientists from the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South America.Read the full article https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/sep/29/scientists-tell-un-global-climate-summit-no-emerge/here:
No matter how you feel about the climate/climate change issue, AND Magazine believes that 500 scientists signing their name to a document which claims current models of climate research are “unfit” is just as, if not more important, than the speech of a sixteen year old with no experience in the field of climate studies. We would bet that more Americans, and citizens of the World, would think that the reasoning of experienced scientists might hold more sway than an emotional speech.
