Making Climate Skepticism Illegal: The Regime’s Crackdown On Disinformation

Update

Original story.

Before we get into this, it is interesting to note that if I had kept my original headline, “Attempting to make global warming skepticism illegal”, it would have caused heads to scratch inside of turn. Propaganda works.

All right: Two new, and two successful, power grabs by the Regime were completed last week.

The first was the start of the Disinformation Governance Board, under the Department of Homeland Security. This creates a mechanism to define official thoughtcrimes. I repeat: if official disinformation exists there necessarily must exist Official Truths (which are only coincidental with Truths), and therefore there must exist an entity in charge of creating and regulating them.

The second grab was creation of the Office of Environmental Justice, under the Department of Justice. There is no such thing as environmental justice. But such a fiction can be defined with respect to The Science (as in “Listen to The Science!”). The Science is research provided by Experts. And Experts, you recall, are educated credentialed important individuals who align with and are supported by the Regime, directly or indirectly.

The first thing you will have noticed is that all things must now be named for what they are not. That is the well known nature of advertising.

The second obvious observation is that these new agencies are two aspects of the same thing: official control of information.

The DGB will be the clearing house for Official Truths (OTs) as we discussed, and the OEJ will be (among other things) one of its police forces for certain kinds of non-political thoughtcrimes.

The right kind of police force, too. Armed men—the government trusts and loves guns when they are in the hands of official agents—equipped with armored SWAT vehicles are not necessary for thoughtlaw arrests. Lawsuits are far superior. Which is to say, the power to legally steal money of those whose thoughts are officially classed as disinformation.

Like the DGB, the OEJ has been in the works for some time.

Here’s a headline from January: “Can You Be Sued For Climate Disinformation? New White Paper On Legal Liability For Climate Denial.”

The Climate Social Science Network recently published a report on greenwashing litigation, a landscape analysis of how climate disinformation is being challenged in courts, based on a database of climate laws, and another of climate litigation.

First, they lay out what’s meant by greenwashing and its more specific climate-washing variant, referring to how companies use rhetoric to conceal their pollution in climate-friendly terms. Greenwashing, per the report and the many studies it cites, consists of “unsubstantiated or misleading claims regarding an actor’s environmental performance,” including “selective disclosure” of good news but not bad, while climate-washing “may encompass issues that go beyond the natural environment.”

There is in the legal white paper not even a hint of a shadow of a notion of a dream of the mere wisp of an idea that climate doom could be false or over-certain. Climate doom will happen unless bad thoughts (like “greenwashing”) are vanquished.

They sternly warn company lawyers to “avoid disinformation regarding climate change and action.” And they tell would-be suers “Existing soft and hard law can be the basis of litigation.” Such as will be provided by the OEJ.

OT lists are being made. The White House gathered Experts to ritually condemn “climate delayism”, and to provide the government the ability to say “Experts created the OT list, not us.”

Other Experts took to Nature, in the peer-reviewed paper “Computer-assisted classification of contrarian claims about climate change“, to show that computers—computers!—can spot wrongthink.

“A growing body of scholarship investigates the role of misinformation in shaping the debate on climate change,” the Abstract opens. Growing body. Experts can always be counted on to provide the regime what it needs.

They warn that “contrarian” thought “increasingly, has challenged climate policy and renewable energy.” And that “Organized climate change contrarianism has played a significant role in the spread of misinformation and the delay of meaningful action to mitigate climate change.”

This paper is proof of our contention that in order for there to be official disinformation, there must be lists of OTs. That is the only way a “computer” can identify misinformation. Because all models only say what they are told to say, their “computer” model must have be told what constitutes wrongthink.

OTs exist, certified by Experts, and will be used to control and police thought. The focus will be more than on global warming, of course, but given the waning of coroandoom, the regime needs a juicy crisis to focus on.

“We must,” said Janet Inflation-is-Transitory Yellen, “Decarbonize our economy.” It is because of the vast, vast sums involved in this “decarbonization”, which is to say, of transferring the wealth from those on the outside to those on the inside, that the DGB and OEJ will flourish.

  1. The reality is, WE are the carbon they want to reduce. They aren’t even hiding it anymore. The “environmental” movement is simply the modern home of Communism, aka forced collectivism, and as such, tolerates no dissent.

    Whenever someone starts talking about “climate change” I like to ask, “At what time in human history, was the global climate stable, and most ideal, for people living closer to the poles, as well as those near the equator?” They never have an answer.

    Perhaps our Climates Alarmists would like to go back to the days of the Maunder Minimum (1645-1715 A.D.), a time when reduced sunspot activity led to catastrophic global COOLING.

    While our climate has been gradually warming since the end of the last ice age 15-20K years ago, we’ve also had periods of cooling, due to reduced sunspot activity and other factors such as volcanic eruptions.

    Astronomers are currently observing reduced sunspot activity, which may account for the long, cold winters and increased snowfall now happening in the northern hemisphere. Indeed, there’s been ZERO warming for over seven years now, which the climate hucksters either hide, or call a “pause”.

    What is the Maunder Minimum?

    “The most famous grand solar minimum of all is undoubtedly the Maunder Minimum, which endured from approximately 1645 until 1720. It was named after Edward Maunder, a nineteenth-century astronomer who painstakingly reconstructed European sunspot observations. The Maunder Minimum has become synonymous with the Little Ice Age, a period of climatic cooling that, according to some definitions, endured from around 1300 to 1850, but reached its chilliest point in the seventeenth century.

    “Temperatures plummeted in Europe. The growing season became shorter by more than a month, the number of snowy days increased from a few to 20–30, the ground froze to several feet, alpine glaciers advanced all over the world, glaciers in the Swiss Alps encroached on farms and buried villages, tree-lines in the Alps dropped, sea ports were blocked by sea ice that surrounded Iceland and Holland for about 20 miles, wine grape harvests diminished, and cereal grain harvests failed, leading to mass famines.”

    Here is an exhaustive list of what happened all around the world, as a result of global cooling during the “Maunder Minimum”:

  2. The next Republican President will abolish both offices, the left will sue in federal court, and carefully selected Progressive judges will rule that Presidents have no right to just undo stuff that previous Presidents did. We’ve seen it already under Trump, guarantee this will become the de facto norm.

  3. “Decarbonize our economy.”

    LOL. That’s like saying, “Desiliconize” or “Deoxygenize”. Eventually we must ban each of the elements of the Periodic Table, yes?

    Twits.

  4. As the vile lash-up between neocon-globohomo-America-last and PC-Prog America-haters strengthens, their manipulation and “behavioral nudges” grow stronger and more obvious (if you’re aware).

    Of course, in their nightmares, their opponents, Normal-Americans, see through their tissue of lies, fakes, and frauds. It appears that their terror of being exposed began with the fraudulent and faked data for global warming. Those Normals who saw through that scam tend to be the same Normals who see through the Really-Bad-Cold-Will-Kill-Us-All scam, the Slava-Ukrainia scam, and who will see through each of the coming scams.

    Thus, all Normals who can see through scams must be eliminated from the pool of marks–not allowed to interact with the mass of unthinking, chanting believers.

    A great case study of scamming, and fraud, manipulation of people and their lives, is the Jim Jones cult. It was a prototypical operation of sifting through the population to find the most vulnerable marks, eliminating those who had defense mechanisms (independent thought and logical reasoning), and then using fear, isolation, pressure, humiliation to mold the suckers as the Great Leader willed. Mold them until they gladly and willingly drank the Kool-Aid, after they fed it to their own children first.

    Sound familiar? We’re living through it now.

  5. Thank you, Ann, for reminding us that we are (geologically speaking) in an ice age now. It is just an interglacial period and we do not know how much longer it will last. We are past its peak and heading toward the next great glaciation. Axial tilt is slowly decreasing from its max (24.5 degrees) toward its minimum (22.1 degrees) and is currently about 23.44 degrees, see here: https://www.timeanddate.com/astronomy/axial-tilt-obliquity.html. That means that the high latitude maximum insolation is already decreasing. That’s without any cloud cover (aerosols) interfering and reducing it more. So, why do we want to decrease the amount of plant food in the air, which is already way too close to plant starvation levels, when we can and should be increasing it toward much better levels, for plants? /rhetorical

  6. When the entire population is likely to be your enemy, some broad sweeping general excuses must be found to conveniently lock-up or dispose of belligerents at your will.

    Criminalizing all manner of common-sense things is one way to go.

    Hence all the brouha-ha over climate, sex, gender etc.

    Eventually a stage will be reached at which the law flips back and forth everyday, like the rules of some game-show played upon the public.

  7. In reference to the cult explanation: cults are usually small scale groups of weak minded people run by a strong, often hypnotic, individual. Jim Jones was probably a somewhat amplified version of Charles Manson. An even larger cult was (and still is) the Branch Davidians, the group attacked by the military and police in Waco, Texas on orders from Janet Reno.

    America is currently being “run” by an incontinent and highly confused elderly human, who claims that his son with a laptop is the brightest person he knows. He is not a Jim Jones type. So, who is actually running America? One can only speculate.

    We are very close to completing the transformation into an Orwellian society where Big Brother is just a figurehead. The oligarchs of the elite inner circle are buying up the politicians who in turn use the nameless, faceless bureaucracy of government and oligopolies to run everything in a “four legs good, two legs bad” fashion.

    The oligarchs apparently believe that a synthesis based upon Orwell’s 1984 and Huxley’s Brave New World will produce an ideal society, where people are controlled through fear and/or with drugs.

    Just remember the fate of Winston at the hands of O’Brien’s education machine. What will you see? Four fingers or five? The newly synthesized somnambulating life forms will not even know they are somnambulating.

  8. While sensible arguments and observations like Ann’s are valid and reasonable
    it does us no good to get down in the mud and wrestle with these pigs. The 24/7
    brainwashing continues unabated as the ranks of the climate clerisy swell. This
    brainwashing is the most deadly existential threat humanity has ever faced it has been
    consciously executed and accelerated on a global scale that beggars belief. The ‘Rights’
    latest hero and legendary welfare queen, ‘Musk’, is the biggest proponent and beneficiary
    of the ‘save the planet scam’. I’m sure he’ll bring us in for the big Twitter win but don’t
    get your hopes up.

    Criminalizing everything permits the state to arbitrarily detain or execute anyone, for any reason, at any time.

    C.R.Dickson-

    I’d add THX-1138 to your list of media that seems to provide guiding principles for the lunatics in charge.

  10. cdquarles asks ” So, why do we want to decrease the amount of plant food in the air, which is already way too close to plant starvation levels, when we can and should be increasing it toward much better levels, for plants? /rhetorical”
    A non rhetorical response that seems to have evaded most is that we, in fact, can hardly increase the atmospheric CO2. Although we are accused of that crime and apparently will be not allowed to tell people about it, our emissions are only responsible for about 30 PPM of the 130+ increase since the industrial revolution. The rest is provided by nature. https://edberry.com/blog/climate/climate-co2-temp/why-climate-change-is-a-fraud/
