In the 90's Al Gore and the mainstream made a whole bunch of predictions that failed to eventuate... That should have been the end of "global warming" propaganda. But they changed its name to climate change so now its every kind of weather event can be linked to climate change.
This officially makes it a pseudoscience... Its predictions failed and now its become unfalsifiable. The fringe climate scientists have actually been predicting a cooling in temperatures due to a decrease in solar activity.
The mainstream resorts to demonizing such people with terms like "climate denier" in order to avoid debating them...
So not only was the mainstream wrong, the people they ridiculed and rejected were actually right...
The problem we have is that most people didn't go to university and most people that did go to university didn't do a hard science subject. And so they think that censoring dissenting opinions is normal when in actual fact it only proves a pseudoscience. They think that you're supposed to simply believe them when they say "follow the science" or "the science is settled" without knowing that this is a classical red flag of pseudoscience. And they don't understand what makes a claim scientific.
Simply put, the mainstream made a heap of predictions that were false. The sea didn't take out countries, we still have snow and the world didn't end. The outsiders that the mainstream fear, made predictions that are true... The world is getting cooler.
A claim is not scientific unless its falsifiable... Is climate change falsifiable?
Prediction made by mainstream "climate scientists" - Australia would never see snow again... Prediction was false
Prediction made by mainstream "climate scientists" - That large parts of Australia would be underwater... Prediction was false
Prediction made by mainstream "climate scientists" - That Australia's temperature would rise considerably... Prediction was false
Prediction made by mainstream "climate scientists" - That the world would end... Prediction was false
That's the end of such a hypothesis
Meanwhile, the other experts have predicted that a cool period would begin last year - Australia has just had its coldest summer in living memory, snow fell in Mexico, Egypt, and other unusual parts of the world. Prediction was true
No wonder the mainstream refuses to debate such people...
