Climate researcher Judith Curry (70) says that if researchers care about their careers, they should not publish anything that is against man-made climate change. Translated: One who speaks the truth needs a fast horse. Scientists will be interested in exaggerating the subject in order to gain fame and money. “It’s an artificially constructed consensus,” Curry told the New York Post.
The researcher describes a peer pressure that would prevail among scientists. He noticed this when he published his study on the formation of storms. “We found that the proportion of Category 4 and Category 5 hurricanes doubled,” Curry said. The media picked up on the study – climate activists disseminated the results, seeing their warnings as vindication. Finally, a connection was made between Curry’s findings on extreme weather events and global warming. But there wasn’t even one. Curry used spoiled dates. A mistake he himself later realized.
Curry also remembers the “Climate Gate” scandal. In 2009, hackers stole internal documents from researchers at the Climate Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia. Explosive material: evidence that at least suggested that research and opinion concluding that climate change was not an existential crisis was withheld. The researcher sees the United Nations as the mastermind behind the alarmism.
The origins of today’s climate change propaganda lie in the United Nations Environment Program (IPCC). Some officials hate oil companies and are using the climate change issue to push their policies, the scientist said. The IPCC should not focus on the benefits of warming. The work was much more than just looking at dangerous human-caused climate changes.
