No Signatures on Stealth Denial Website

on

Here’ s a chilling little website, a totally anonymous exploration of “science” that asks, hopefully, “Are we doing things that speed up this (climate) cycle or perhaps is global warming slowing the onset of the next ice age?”

The site is called “Is Canada Ready,” and it seems calculated to make readers feel:

a) that climate cycles operate independent of human activity (read: it’s not your fault); and

b) that we’re on the verge of a global cooling catastrophe that we might prevent by continuing to pump CO2 into the atmosphere.

Absent any mention of a funding source or a single credentialed contributor, you have to take the site with a truckload of salt. But it looks relatively credible and assumes a moderate tone – a phony even-handedness – that seems intended to draw in the unwary.

So … be wary.

Anti-science rhetoric and special interests have pushed us to the edge of climate chaos. But just as quantum physics disrupted our view of matter and energy, quantum social change disrupts our beliefs about what’s possible, how fast, and by whom.
