Climate Change: They Lied

Posted on 4 October 2022 by Guest Author

This video includes conclusions of the creator climate scientist Dr. Adam Levy. It is presented to our readers as an informed perspective. Please see video description for references (if any).

We've been warned about climate change for many decades. So what's been stopping us from acting?! Well, in part, the lies of fossil fuel companies. These lies have taken many shapes: doubt; denial; delay and greenwashing. Now, three bodies of evidence show the shady reality of climate change misinformation.

Comments 1 to 2:

  1. Very entertaining person. It leaves me with the question of where the blames should lie. Fossil fuel companies are making the stuff, but we are the one's burning it. When the price of motor fuel practically double this past spring, it, not the war in Ukraine or the overturn of Roe V Wade or the 8.5% inflation rate, commanded more attention. It seems to me that in order to reduce and finally eliminate most of the fossil fuels we fault as the leading cause of climate changing emissions, we need to severely ration, even outlaw much of its production.

  2. FUDG, Fear Uncertainty Doubt Greenwashing:  Needs to be added to our lexicon.  Updating the acronym Fear Uncertainty Doubt (FUD) for the Climate Emergency inaction period we are in we get Fear Uncertainty Doubt Greenwashing (FUDG) ... and yes I mean to imply the pun.
