Endetiden (kan også kalles 1,5-gradersmålet)
Folk som ikke undersøker om klimaskremselspåstandene holder vann lar seg som regel overbevise av det de tror er flertallet av forskerne. Selv om 97%-påstanden er avslørt som humbug - opptil flere ganger - virker det som om de fleste ikke har fått det med seg. I alle fall har ikke hovedstadsmedia (inklusive NRK) + BT, Adressa og TV2 prøvd å sjekke dette faktum.
Veldig mange med akademisk bakgrunn har samme mangelfulle innsikt - eller mangel på nysgjerrighet. De tror på klimapåstandene fra aktivister, IPCC, politikere og det klimaindustrielle komplekset uten å undersøke dette selv.
En del akademikere med naturvitenskapelig bakgrunn fikk åpnet øynene ved Climategate, der e-poster fra sentrale "klimaforskere" (forskere som er aktivister fortjener betegnelsen "scientivister" ) ble offentliggjort av en ukjent varsler. Det ble straks igangsatt en del hvitvaskingskampanjer da dette ble avslørt, men ingen av disse hvitvaskingene tok tak i det sentrale tema; manipuleringen av sentrale klimadata, oppdikting av temperaturutviklingen, påvirkning av peer review-prosessene, truslene mot redaktører som ville trykke motstridene rapporter - i det hele en etisk framferd av verste slag. Mange av forskerne som også var i stand til å lese andre ting enn vitenskapelige rapporter, fant ut at de faktisk burde undersøke IPCCs påstander litt nøyere. Det er slike forskere som egenlig definerer forskjellen på A- og B-forskere (gjett i hvilken kategori de fleste norske "klimaforskere" hører hjemme!). Ett sentralt ikon, Hockey-stick-grafen til Michael Mann var med på å sparke i gang klimaredselen. Den ble ganske raskt avslørt - men igjen - dette er noe de færreste har fått med seg. Det hadde heller ikke Andreas Wahl da han ble medskyldig i det manipulerende propagandaprogrammet "Klimakrisa" på NRK.
Hockeykøllegrafen - den er fullstendig oppdiktet
De som fortsatt tror på 97% av alle forskere mener at verden går under på grunn av våre CO2-utslipp bør kanskje ikke lese videre om de har svakt hjerte, for her er noen sitater fra A-forskere:
"The most famous example of what I consider outright cheating was Michael Mann’s famous “Hockey Stick” graph… This graph has had an amazing existence, rising from the ashes each time someone points out a fatal flaw. Why? Because the UN IPCC desperately needs this graph."

Slik kan jeg fortsette. De som ikke får med seg hva dette betyr har ikke forstått forskjellen på bruk av den vitenskapelige metode (stikkord Popper) og renheklet juks.
Sitatene er hentet fra Mark Steyns bok "A Disgrace to the Professsion" som kan anbefales på det varmeste. Mark Steyn (forfatter, teaterkritiker og sanger) er saksøkt av Michael Mann fordi han har uttalt seg negativt om Manns hockeykøllegraf. Jeg anbefaler at man kjøper boken - som er god - ikke minst for å støtte Steyn i sin kamp mot pseudovitenskapen.
