Recently a post made in a facebook group that I am an admin for was found to be "fake news" by a group of alleged scientists.
"To fight false news, Facebook pushes misleading content farther down in News Feed and provides additional articles on the same topic. If a group repeatedly shares false news, Facebook may push all of that group's content down in News Feed, which may mean fewer people visit the group. Facebook may also stop suggesting that people join the group."
They notified the three admins of our group and we shared their bold admission of censorship with our group and then with Fakebook members at large.
Apparently a Youtube video where a real scientist, Roger Hallam, being interviewed by BBC and telling his interviewer that we will go extinct if we do nothing by 2100 was considered "fake" by three individuals tasked with censorship of certain scientific information. These three yokels don't want you to know that you might be going extinct soon. They are being PAID to keep information from you.
Paid by the #DeepState who want you to continue your slave wage job that sustains corporate fascists like the Koch brothers. Every spandex pair of pants you buy lines the coffers of the Koch brothers, even with one dead (at last). There are SO many Koch products that you need to keep buying, and so they want to keep the truth from everyone. To accomplish that they use biased and questionable sources to support their lies of "fakery". I won't share those questionable sources. They don't deserve to be clicked on. If we are being deliberately squelched in site searches, so should they.
Please watch and share the video below far and wide. Even if it is not 100% accurate, it is within the parameters of TRUTH that people need to know about and start talking about! You can watch the video linked below and be your own judge of what is "misleading". I trust a scientist with years of experience in the field far more than a couple of hacks being paid to disinform folks and censor your access to all information. The very likely happening of #NTHE (near term human extinction) is NOT fake news.
My response to these science hacks:
"Your claim that the information shared in this BBC interview of Roger Hallam is false is false. Hallam is a distinguished scientist speaking from evidence, not from a Koch check.
You need to do better fact checking and maybe shred your Koch checks. Your science is sloppy. Let me tell you why.
The ACTUAL science shows we are in the Sixth Mass Extinction currently and that “Biological annihilation” is occurring. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-35068-1
We can expect humans to be part of the annihilated early on. We are the most fragile after all.
So many laypeople think if they vote the right way, if they recycle, if they write letters and march or wear stupid hats that our “leaders” will do the right thing and “fix” abrupt climate change. But you and I know they are mistaken.
Maybe for a number of reasons they are mistaken.
Global warming/Greenhouse Effect cannot be fixed. Certainly not by limiting emissions.
The problem with trying to correct the problem of the Greenhouse effect by limiting emissions is the Aerosol Masking effect. It’s a real pain in the butt catch 22.
If we slow industrial activity in the hope of limiting emissions, we actually increase warming drastically. Nay, catastrophically.
This unexpected consequence of our behavior can cause many deaths in a short period. We have vastly underestimated the warming that is going camouflaged by AME.
It is very obvious to a growing number of legit, experienced, field practiced scientists (not those Koch ones) that we are in the last decades of our species, if not THE last decade. When the Arctic melts and has a Blue Ocean Event, maybe even this fall, it will trigger catastrophic warming. Warming that will make the hurricane bombs and droughts of our midwest farmers look like Sunday picnics. You may not know this but grains require stable ecosystems to grow. Aka habitat. Also, civilization and its 7.8 billion people need grains to live. No Arctic means no grains. No grains means no people. We are this close to seeing the last chapter of our species. And we have done it to ourselves. You especially have helped by lying. Lying to yourselves and lying to the public. Carl Sagan must be rolling in his grave.
If you insist on misinforming the populace with your made up Trumpism of “fake news” whenever the mood strikes you, people are going to leave Fakebook and go elsewhere for the truth. They already are. Your censorship is pure corporate fascism and flies in the face of what freedom of speech actually is.
Our Extinction is at the door. We are in planetary hospice right now. We could be helping people prepare to live out our last days with dignity and compassion, instead we are lying to them, separating families, imprisoning people, creating more homelessness, letting the sick die in misery and waging wars of conquest against brown people living on oil fields. Shame.
Thank you for reading.
May your extinction be swift and painless.
This past July I had the pleasure of traveling for the second time in two years to New Zealand where a dear friend invited us to stay with him on the island of Rakino where he lives. The boat ride to Rakino, the only way in which to get there, is about a 45 minute ride and passes some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. An ocean scape of stunning beauty scattered with islands, the occasional Orka or smaller dolphin pod, fishing boats, yachts and rainbows. I learned that New Zealand was the last place that humans colonized and therefore is less impacted by our natural bent to grind the living planet into dust. However, on the two large islands, North Island and South Island, the evidence of modern humans is inescapable. The once native forests have been largely replaced with pine forests for lumber which are allowed to establish and grow, creating numerous ecosystems for many species which are then brutally dislocated when the artificial forest is razed for its lumber several years later. Alongside these perfectly spaced pine forests are lush, rolling valleys of sheep and cattle pasture where bucolic images of sheep and Black Angus lounge and feed all day. These creatures are where New Zealand gets its fame for some of the best meat in the world's meat industry, meat still safe from Mad Cow disease.
There were no cats or rats in New Zealand until humans arrived with these pests and which quickly laid waste to the flightless birds, especially the renowned Kiwi bird, where New Zealanders get their pet nick-name from. Unlike Australia, New Zealand has no dangerous bugs or animals. Unlike Australia, everything creeping or crawling or flying in New Zealand does not want to kill and eat you. The temperate weather offers a stable growing zone where pretty much any agricultural industry can thrive, and they do! New Zealand is likely the closest thing to paradise on Earth!
