Fear Mongering at Its Best

Fear Mongering at Its Best
By Erick San Juan
The netizens are now being bombarded with reports of the so-called end of the world or the beginning of the new age based on the Mayan calendar. Such doomsday scenario is being posted on the internet from bloggers to not so reliable news reports – all to sow fear amongst the world’s populace. Reports also connect the recent calamities from hurricanes to earthquakes to the forthcoming ‘end of the world’ scenario. We never learned on how we were duped to spend to online all our computers to evade the Y2k computer collapse "kuno" last 2000.
Fear mongering continues as more and more individuals believe in the lies being propagated by these  global ‘terrorists’. Like the ones in the recently concluded UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, a 12-day conference of 200 nations to curb global warming via human carbon emissions into the atmosphere held at Doha in Qatar from November 26 to December 8. After the said event, press releases were carried by mainstream media parroting the doom and gloom scenario.
Annually such meeting is being held in order to sustain the global warming (interchangeably climate change) hoax and for as long as there are world leaders adhering to such foolishness, the deception will continue.
As what Alex Newman, a foreign correspondent for The New American online said :
“…. recent efforts to exploit fear by climate alarmists and UN bureaucrats seeking to blame “global warming” for weather events like Hurricane Sandy, for example, are absurd on their face, according to Lord Monckton and a wide array of experts. In reality, these sorts of bogus claims are nothing more than fear mongering aimed at drumming up hysteria and duping the public to facilitate a global agreement that would benefit the UN, power-hungry governments, dictatorships, and elements of “Big Business” — all at the expense of humanity, science, prosperity, liberty, national sovereignty, and real environmental problems.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Reports are the ‘scientific’ source of claims for more severe and extreme weather,” observed Dr. Tim Ball, a climate scientist who has been one of the more prominent experts to challenge the UN’s dubious theories aside from former IPCC experts themselves. “In fact the incidence and severity of extreme weather — hurricanes, wind storms, tornadoes, heat waves, drought, floods, ice storms, etc. — have not generally increased recently and are well within long term natural variability.
Despite those facts, top UN officials continue to make blatantly false claims about climate, warning that if governments refuse to promptly force their populations to submit to the outlandish demands, certain disaster awaits. The tone is only getting more and more hysterical, too. Last month, before the COP18 began in Doha, even UN boss Ban Ki-moon himself made those same absurd allegations, damaging his remaining credibility further; possibly beyond repair.”
Sadly, even our own climate envoy to the UN convention, Naderev Sano was believed to be taken for a ride blaming the climate change hoax on the devastation brought about by the onslaught of typhoon Pablo in the country. But most activists like Sano are foreign funded through NGO's. Actually, Pablo is a wake up call to all government officials, elected and appointed to address the perennial man-made problem like illegal logging, etc. that has caused and will cause disasters to all of us.
It is natural that our country is being visited by not less than twenty typhoons per year and any excuses coming from the national and local leaders are not acceptable when it comes to saving lives or preventing such disaster to claim lives.
Corruption is still prevalent and after every disaster there is no accountability or whatsoever from responsible officials who allow such deaths to occur. The solutions are not in any ‘superbody’ like the United Nations, it is right within our reach, our own leaders’ commitment to serve the country’s citizens and give them protection whenever there’s a calamity.
So, instead of Naderev Sano’s appeal prop to the world at the UN convention to find solutions to the impacts of climate change, Sano should appeal to the present administration to do it's role to avoid the loss of more precious lives. It’s still all about accountability, stupid!
And if we will continue to ride the deception of the fear mongerers, the death toll will continue to rise and in the end we will ask dumbly, what hit us?
Let us all be vigilant and think twice before believing the lies being fed to us, there are a lot of them especially on the internet. We have to study and conduct research on our own in order to balance the different views being presented to us. An intelligent mind cannot be deceived easily. God bless us all.
