“Don’t call me an alarmist,” says alarmist

Sarah E. Myhre is not an alarmist. Really, she isn’t.

“Just don’t call me an alarmist,” says Sarah E. Myhre, a junior climate scientist from the University of Washington in Seattle, at the end of her article for Live Science.

Yet earlier in the same article she writes of “the immense challenge of communicating the terrifying and heartbreaking (and I mean those words specifically) risks that come with climate change”.

Here are some of her recent tweets:

Apart from climate alarm, her tweets feature remarks about white people and men.

The article contains some of the usual misleading comparisons used by climate alarmists – greenhouse gases “trap” heat like a “blanket” (no they don’t, a blanket traps warm air, but in the atmosphere hot air rises), and climate change is falsely compared to the smoking-cancer link.

She recently appeared in an odd video, intended as a response to the recent Dilbert cartoon on climate science, discussed by Ross McKitrick, who notes her alarmism and intent to shout from rooftops.

This is one of the problems of climate science. It has politicised itself into an echo-chamber of groupthink, to the extent that enthusiastic young activists who already have the alarmist mindset are attracted into the field, enhancing the bias further. The chances of these people doing decent, objective, professional science are very slim. Near the end, the article laments “a crisis of trust between the American public and climate scientists,” but sadly the author does not have the self-awareness to understand the causes of this mistrust.

    It seems like an overwhelming percentage of lecturing climate “experts” are twenty something college students who dutifully recite the apocalypse mantras of their leftist professors.

    Come back when you’ve stopped receiving participation trophies for just showing up. Come back when you’ve shed your “safe spaces”. Come back when you’ve paid 15 or 20 years of taxes and seen for yourself that the sky isn’t falling like Professor Gore has been saying for the last 30 years.

        You get unearned good grades from leftist professors just for showing up
        and
        the louder you’re a screaming banshee
        and
        the more you violently act out your rage
        the greater your chances of an ” A “

            Because the Bottom line is, If today’s scientist can fudge data for power, prestige and money, then what do you think can happen over 2000 years with the same?

So what ever you got is probably worthless, and so you will find out! Realize that what you were tough may be wrong and then think about what you learned!

    Universities were the places to debate now they are drifting to being intolerant and while overstating their value . Church’s used to hold the brainwash trophy . Not anymore .
    President Trump is on the right track . Apprentice programs
    are a tried and true method of bring people into the workforce .
    Do you need an $100,000 BA to work at a bank or coffee shop or to learn a trade .
    Universities customer base are getting fed up with their value proposition .

    Rather than take a good look around them, they have these “devastating” images stuck in their heads from all the false prophets of climate change; something from out of a sci-fi movie (Al Gore’s, more specifically). They’ve been totally brainwashed. What can happen that hasn’t happened before?

      Yes, and looking at from a religious point of view, what was the cause of the disasters claimed by the leaders? Sinners that was the cause, Now look at the current blame Climate sinners! Scam is a scam is a scam! Bottom line!

    These protesters are the same as the pothead jerks of the 60’s and 70’s.
    I’m not trying to justify JFK & LBJ’s entrance and expansion of the
    French Indochinese ( Vietnam ) War
    But their ” reasoning ” and methodology are the same

    No opinion but their opinion is acceptable.

    There is no reason to present your case or opinion or logic,

    The question is already proven .

    Any disagreement will be met with anger and violence.

    And yet they claim to represent freedom of
    thought
    assembly and
    riot.

    4TIMES has a good point here. If the idea is to be an activist who positively changes the world, there is no shortage of REAL human crisis and suffering to attend to. Why focus upon such a contrived and dubious issue as man-made climate change?

    The people who dedicate themselves to real causes have little time for self adulation, dressing up like Comic-Con characters,and chasing down the photographers at campus demonstrations-turned parties.

    Positively motivated social activists don’t need to take marching orders from their morally derelict, tenured professors. In this insulated and protected campus world of protest, all roads lead to some form of political socialism – an ideology that has ironically for many years impoverished, enslaved, and murdered millions, of innocent people under various guises of “social justice”.

    Sarah and her friends need a few more REAL history courses instead of the “progressive” fairy tales that substitute for politically corrected truth.

      Their scientific method is socialist in practice. They prop each other up. Praise each other’s contributions. They’re faithful to their union. No public disention .No snitching. Stick together and the money will flow. This particular specimen has a bright future at the trough.

          When someone promises you paradise, ponder their motivation and question their ability to deliver.
