My purpose for posts such as this is not to stir up dissension, but rather for knowledge and consideration. Despite what you’ve heard, there are many that aren’t buying the doomsday climate change narrative. This issue is important for Lyme/MSIDS patients because we’ve been told repeatedly that “climate change” affects tick and disease proliferation when research by a tick researcher has completely debunked this notion. I’m including links after the article for you to read for yourself.
The reason this issue is important is there are only so many research dollars to be vied for. For 40 years patients have languished with little research designed with them in mind. The last thing we need is more climate data that will not help one patient one iota.
John Stossel Destroys Climate Change Myths In New Video
Are We Doomed?
Scientists did show up to debunk some of the common myths being pushed by folks like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and other extremists.
Stossel noted how over the years he’d covered so many scares that had turned out not to be what people claimed, that in fact, we’re living longer than ever.
Yet the alarmists like Greta Thunberg say “entire ecosystems are collapsing” and we are on the brink of “mass extinction.” Politicians like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and former Vice President Joe Biden proclaim, “We have 12 years left.”
The scientists took on that myth. “Please, let’s have a discussion!” begged astrophysicist Willie Soon.
Pat Michaels, former president of the American Association of State Climatologists, dissected the 12 years/extinction claim:
“It’s warmed up around one degree Celsius since 1900, and life expectancy doubled, yet that temperature ticks up another half a degree and the entire system crashes? That’s the most absurd belief.”
And what happens when in all likelihood we’re all still here in pretty much the same condition in 12 years?
Climatology Professor David Legates predicted, “In twelve years, it’ll be 12 more years.”
Exactly. How long has this been going on? Since at least the 1970s when folks pushed the spurious claim we might be entering a new ice age.
Willie Soon said it was all about emotional handwaving.
But, as the scientists explained, we adapt and address conditions. That’s the human way.
Stossel asked the scientists, “You acknowledge though the water is rising?”
Legates agreed. “Yes, the water has been rising for approximately 20,000 years.” Alrighty, now.
The scientists also debunked “global warming is making storms worse” and that carbon dioxide is harmful, both of which they pointed out is wrong.
Another myth? The government can somehow save us.
“The Obama administration’s model projects that the amount of global warming that would be saved going to zero emissions tomorrow … would be 14 hundredths of a degree Celsius,” according to Michaels.
An insignificant difference for global warning. But a killer for the country. “You’ll surely have an impoverished dark country,” he said.
But, as Stossel observes, the other side doesn’t want to debate, they just want to impose their will, without question.
So why are politicians so eager to push all this on us? One word: control.

John explains, “The climate change range expansion model is what the authorities have been using to rationalize how they have done nothing for more than thirty years. It’s a huge cover-up scheme that goes back to the 1980’s. The grandiose scheme was a nefarious plot to let doctors off the hook from having to deal with this debilitating disease. I caught onto it very quickly. Most people have been victims of it ever since.”
“This climate change ‘theory’ is all part of a well-planned scheme. Even the ticks are smarter than the people who’ve concocted this thing,” he says.
“Climate change has nothing to do with tick movement. Blacklegged ticks are ecoadaptive, and tolerate wide temperature fluctuations. On hot summer days, these ticks descend into the cool, moist leaf litter and rehydrate. In winter, they descend into the leaf litter, and are comfortable under an insulating blanket of snow. Ticks have antifreeze-like compounds in their bodies, and can tolerate a wide range of temperatures. For instance, at Kenora, Ontario, the air temperature peaks at 36°C and dips to –44°C, and blacklegged ticks survive successfully.
“Ticks are marvellous eco-adaptors. They will be the last species on the planet. Do you see how silly this theory of climate change is as a way to rationalize what’s happening. It’s all a red herring to divert your attention,” he explains.
And lastly, take a look at what this doomsday attitude is doing to our young people:
These young people believe that their parents “trashed the planet,” and that we are “all going to die in a few years.” They call it “environmental racism.”
According to this 2004 article by the Guardian, we shouldn’t even be alive and Britain should be ‘Siberian’ by now: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2004/feb/22/usnews.theobserver
Unfortunately, people are suffering and dying but not because of the climate.
How about we focus on those issues?
