So it’s been at least two decades now of climate scientists promising doomsday very very soon, and yet they keep making pronouncements like “Climate Change Worse Than We Thought, Likely To Be ‘Catastrophic Rather Than Simply Dangerous'” and expect us to pay attention. Weren’t you guys making exact same claims like that twenty years ago? You actually think anyone new is going to pay attention if you just keep repeating it over and over for years and years as nothing happens (other than ships looking for global warming data getting stuck in ice)? It’s starting to make me think that climate scientists have the problem solving skills of chickens — which would explain a lot.
Instead of these constant claims of doomsday that have become white noise, climate scientists need a put up or shut up date. They need to declare a specific date that they say everyone will be dead by, and if we aren’t all dead then, we get to make fun of them and call them idiots who have no idea what they’re talking about. So no more vague, unproveable claims of some future calamity at some unspecified time; we need a hard date that everyone should be dead by if they actually have any idea of what they’re talking about. And if they won’t come up with that, they might as well save their breath on any more pronouncements no one is going to listen to.
