The Death of "Experts"...

The Niagara Non-Falls

We are going through a period in the media that may well - happily - bring to an end the age of "Experts".
For the last decade or so, in desperation to gain eyeballs, news outlets have resorted to publishing and broadcasting "climate porn", translating it into the scariest story possible - that humans were causing it - backed up by those whose livelihood depends on commenting on (a) the climate catastrophe and (b) human guilt as a result of using fossil fuels (even though the use of these is the largest difference between developed and undeveloped populations).
But natural events tend to not watch CNN. While the alarmist "experts" were predicting "global warming" the globe started cooling off, or at least not warming any more. Been almost 20 years with only one blip in 1998.
So they tried to change the story; that the frigid temperatures are caused by ... wait now.... global warming (which hasn't taken place).
So the "experts" shifted their tall tales to "climate change". And heads along Fifth Avenue and Penn Ave in DC and Toronto's Annex, started nodding up and down.
But this is a ridiculous conclusion. Climates have always changed this is not either the hottest or coldest period on earth that has sustained mammalian life.
So anyone who backs these experts has been deluded by them and should never listen to them again. Beware of false prophets.
