What you’ll notice about global warming believers is that they are totally unwilling to have adult-style conversations. It is all of this emotional hysteria, which appears generally unhinged.
All global warming activism is some version of Greta’s infamous emotional breakdown at the UN.
I suppose it’s logical enough that “the science” would point out that it’s best to steer clear of logical or fact-based discussions, and instead focus on emotionally manipulating the public.
It’s what we call “the Holocaust model.” If someone asks where the ashes of six million people disappeared to, you just start screaming and crying and saying they’re evil.
It’s sort of weird to publish this strategy in a research paper, maybe.
Anger is by far the most powerful emotional predictor of whether somebody plans to take part in a climate protest, research suggests.
The study, which asked 2,000 Norwegian adults how they felt about the climate crisis, found the link to activism was seven times stronger for anger than it was for hope. The effects were smaller for other actions, but fear and guilt were the best predictors of policy support, while sadness, fear and hope were the best predictors of behavioural change.
So we should crush hope and replace it with anger, fear, guilt, and sadness.
This seems to be a society-wide policy on every issue, actually.
On average, people reported having fairly mild feelings about the planet heating.
“The problem isn’t that people feel too scared about climate change,” said Thea Gregersen, a climate psychologist at the Norwegian Research Centre and lead author of the study. “The problem, in Norway at least, seems to be that they’re not scared enough.”
In another universe, where I was evil, I would produce a David Cronenberg style movie about global warming.
Everyone would be really scared.
Much more scared than they were of Al Gore’s stupid bullshit about the ice caps melting.
Faced with rising reports of ecological anxiety, psychologists across the world are racing to understand how people’s feelings about the destruction of nature affect their mental health and behaviour. But the few studies to interrogate the link between emotions and actions have shown mixed results.
“We’re nowhere near having a comprehensive understanding,” said Caroline Hickman, a climate psychologist at the University of Bath, who was not involved in the study. “If anybody presents this material confidently as certainties or pretends they’re an expert, ignore them. Run away.”
When the researchers in Norway asked participants what made them angry, they found most people mentioned human actions such as causing the climate crisis or failing to stop it. A further 26% said their anger related to human qualities such as people not caring.
I actually understand doing the study.
But The Guardian deciding to publish a report about it is what is amazing.
I’m surprised The Guardian hasn’t been taken over by American Jews at this point. They are constantly publishing stuff you’re not supposed to publish.
People should feel angry because they had been deliberately deceived by fossil fuel companies and governments had let that happen, said Dr Laura Thomas-Walters, a social scientist at the Yale Programme on Climate Communication and an activist with Extinction Rebellion, who was not involved in the studies.
The link from anger to activism was logical, she added. “It’s in the name that activism is an ‘active’ behaviour, and anger can spur action.”
But messages that make people angry can also push others to shut down, particularly if they feel powerless. There were robust studies from health psychology that showed communicating risks could backfire if people were not also told how they could protect themselves, said Lorraine Whitmarsh, the head of the UK’s Centre for Climate Change and Social Transformations, who was not involved in the study. “People really need to feel they can make a difference on climate change. And it’s much harder to make a difference on climate change than it is on health risks, because it’s a great big global collective problem.”
Scientists are working to understand the role that hope plays. A review study published on Tuesday found “partial yet inconclusive evidence” that increasing hope makes people engage more with the climate. It found people whose hope was rooted in complacency were less likely to engage than those whose hope was linked to action.
I think that the fact that the people pushing the global warming hoax are willing to just admit, outright, that there is no reason to try to sway people with facts and they should focus entirely on emotionally manipulating the public basically amounts to evidence that global warming is a hoax.
I’ve never tried to make people angry at Jews, for example. People get angry, but they get angry because I explain to them what the Jews are doing.
I’ve focused more on humor.
I don’t feel a need to emotionally manipulate anyone.
The basic fact is that none of these doomsday scenarios that are being outlined by the global warmers make any logical sense, because the whole thing is a hoax.
Just look at the way they claim forest fires are caused by global warming. Then go look at the fact that forest fires are natural. Then go look at the various theories of how preventing this natural occurrence have been implemented. You then have a full view of how these forest fires are inevitable, and are not related to global warming.
Even if global warming were real, “global warming is causing forest fires” is a demonstrably false statement.
What’s more, the global warmers are very selective in only ever attacking the middle class of Western nations.
Greta never protests against China building hundreds of coal power plants, or OPEC oil, or Russian oil and natural gas, or private jets being flown to climate conferences.
The only thing Greta ever protests about is shutting down European and USA energy projects and their… pic.twitter.com/z0VuliFJzF
