Advertisement And multiple studies show that the petition signed by those 500 scientists denying climate science is itself based on incorrect science. So which do we believe? By numbers of scientists on each side? Climate change deniers lose. By numbers of studies on each side? Climate change deniers lose. By the scientific credentials of the scientists on either side? Climate change deniers lose. By the credibility and integrity of motives behind funding? Climate change deniers lose. By the credibility and integrity of which politicians and public figures flock to which side? Climate change deniers lose. What really irks me is this. What if climate science is wrong? What if scientists get their way, and: Replace our reliance of fossil fuels with renewable energy which will run till the end of time. Thereby bring down costs for everyone and vastly improving air quality, and eliminating millions of cases of cancer and other respiratory illnesses caused by city pollution. Force oil companies to fix all their oil spillages, thereby restoring environments back to their pristine natural habitat. Pay back to all the native communities who've had their land destroyed, thereby undoing a small but no insignificant part of the injustice which has been inflicted upon these people. Force oil companies to pay for treatment of all city dwellers who developer respiratory diseases? Bring to justice all the companies who publicly lied about emissions, who funded demonstrably fake science to cover up the risk of emissions, who paid to mislead the public (all of which has most definitely happened, whether climate science is true or false, they are guilty of this much and more - you remember the VW scandal) and bring laws to prevent any corporation from ever doing the public over like that again, in any industry. and then, decades later, we find out that the projections and models were wrong, and emissions are in fact, not heating up the planet, and the climate science deniers were right. What's would be so bad about that?! What harm would be done? A handful of billion dollar companies lose revenue? Those same companies who not only don't pay tax but actually pay negative tax because they receive government subsidies, who lie to us, who poison us, who give us cancer and try to deny it? This is what its all about: protecting the revenue of a handful of parasitic corporations so their billionaire shareholders can make even more millions. 20 years ago they use to need to pay scientists to publish fake studies that put climate science in question, they now have an army of internet conspiracists doing the work for them for free!!!
