An Absolute Must Read on the Left’s Attack on Science

You really need to go read this whole piece at the Wall Street Journal.

Roger Pielke, Jr. is a scientist and professor. He believed mankind is causing global warming. He believes that government needs to impose a carbon tax and more to restrain our emissions outputs. But Pielke has been vocal that some of the fearmongering by the left on the issue of climate change is not true.

For example, Pielke has repeatedly pointed out that claims about storms, tornados, and droughts related to climate change are not supported by the evidence. He has pointed out that insurance claims due to natural disaster are actually less than most people expected. But these are the claims the left uses to scare people into enacting their anti-capitalist agenda.

For daring to tell the truth, even though he agrees with the left on climate change, Pielke has been harassed, bullied, and censored.

I hope you will read the whole thing because the left-media is about to double down on efforts to scare us over climate change. And we must remind ourselves repeatedly that what they claim is often not true, but is designed to scare us and people get punished for pointing it out.

And it is not just climate change. From scientists who point out there is no scientific basis for birth based sexual orientation to no science supporting transgenderism, the left will silence any scientist with actual scientific research if that research defies leftwing orthodoxy.

The left posits that it is the party of science. Really, the left is the party that has politicized science in pursuit of its social justice goals.
