If their case is so strong, then why are they afraid of dissenting voices?
Wikipedia has been credibly accused of censorship and participating in a “cover-up” concerning climate change skeptics.
On #InternationalWomenDay2020, Wikipedia deleted the names of 6 women scientists fighting for “Climate Realism.”
But those weren’t all the scientists that Wikipedia tried to airbrush off its website.
An entire list of notable scientists who disagree with the scientific “consensus” of global change has been deleted.
For a website that calls itself an “encyclopedia,” many internet users are calling the action Stalin-esque.
More details on this alarming development can be seen below:
The deletion comes as some politicians and prominent public figures have called for climate change denial to be considered a criminal offense.
Climate activists like Greta Thunberg have said that those who don't believe in man made climate change should be put "against the wall."
Over the years, there has been an increasingly aggitated sentiment towards those who have doubts over increased government regulation when it comes to energy production and free-market research on alternative energy sources.
Breitbart was the first major news outlet to break the story:
Wikipedia has deleted its ‘List of Scientists Who Disagree with the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming’.
Stalin — who set the template for airbrushing inconvenient people out of history — would no doubt have heartily approved of this wanton act of censorship.
But what would probably have pleased him more is the magnificently twisted justification offered by the editor responsible.
“The result was delete. This is because I see a consensus here that there is no value in having a list that combines the qualities of a) being a scientist, in the general sense of that word, and b) disagreeing with the scientific consensus on global warming.”
What this Wikipedia editor is saying, in other words, is that if you’re a scientist who doesn’t believe in global warming then that automatically makes you not a scientist.
In fact many tens of thousands of scientists are sceptical of catastrophic man-made global warming theory, including some of the most eminent experts in the field, among them physicists Dr Richard Lindzen of MIT and Dr Will Happer of Princeton.
But the kind of intolerant leftists who tend to edit Wikipedia pages don’t want you to know this.
Their archived debate as to whether the ‘List of Scientists Who Disagree with the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming’ offers a fascinating, if not exactly surprising, insight into their mindset.
The editors variously refer to these often eminent scientists as “cranks” and “a club of fools”.
If Wikipedia does not reinstate the list of credible scientists who are skeptical of climate change, then the accusations of bias will appear to be true.
Our major universities have been accused of brainwashing young minds.
Hollywood is poisoning the public through politicized entertainment.
Now, internet giants are eliminating dissenting voices from their platforms.
So who are the scientists on the list?
Well... these aren't just any scientists.
These are NOTABLE scientists.
For example, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, Ivan Giaver, is a scientist who is skeptical of the climate change narrative. His name was one of those included when the list was deleted.
Because Wikipedia is a public and open source website, comments defending scientists on the list are still visible to the public:Let's take a look at the list of people responsible for your so called "fringe theories advanced for religious purposes," shall we?
- Patrick Moore, one of the founders of Greenpeace;
- Ivan Giaver, who won the Nobel Peace Prize;
- Judith Curry, retired head of the Atmospheric Sciences Department of the Georgia Institute of Technology;
- Richard Lindzen, retired head of the Atmospheric Sciences Department of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and member of the National Academy of Sciences (you know, that thing Einstein was a member of);
- Vincent Courtillot, a member of the French Academy of Sciences;
- Khabibullo Abdussamatov, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences;
- John Christy, who is a professor at the University of Alabama at Huntsville, who keeps the temperature data used by NOAA and NASSA, and who contributes to the IPCC reports;
- Roy Spencer, who keeps the data with John Christy;
- Frederich Seitz, former President of the National Academy of Sciences;
Electroverse, a website that documents earth's weather and climate patterns also weighed in on the deletion of the list:
Dr Roger Higgs concludes by noting the three BBC-style disingenuous omissions in the title alone: “List of scientists who disagree with the scientific consensus on global warming” — (1) these are not just any scientists, but well-known and, in many cases, distinguished scientists (Happer, Soon, Lindzen, etc, etc), in diverse fields of science; (2) they disagree with the consensus on man-made global warming (no educated person denies global warming; Earth has always alternately warmed and cooled); (3) the consensus is only among climate scientists (whose salaries, research grants, and reputations depend on public belief in man-made warming).
The internet is all about promoting the free flow of information.
The deletion of the list of prominent scientists skeptical of climate change certainly reeks of a political motive.
Several users are fighting to have the list reinstated.
This story is still developing.
