If the repeated and consistent failure of climate scientists to accurately predict the impact of climate change hasn’t made you skeptical about their doomsday lamentations, perhaps the utter politicization of the scientists involved in the COVID response will educate you.

If temperatures continue to rise past 1.5 degrees Celsius, the likelihood of increasingly deadly wildfires, floods, heat waves and other disasters becomes unavoidable, scientists have warned. Countries must immediately and drastically reduce greenhouse gases caused by burning oil, gas and coal if the world is to avert the most catastrophic effects, experts have said.
