Minister of Social Justice? Climate change debate DEBASED by non-climate scientists

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

There are generally three groups in the scientific community that research climate change and impacts on the environment.

They are the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a group of government bodies that essentially believe that anthropogenic, or human induced climate change is what’s behind rising temperatures and there’s what we call the skeptics, groups of scientists that generally question human induced global warming.

It’s important to note that these two groups agree on a lot of the main points regarding climate change, including that it’s incredibly difficult to predict catastrophic consequences from increasing temperatures.

Then there’s a group of scientists outside both of these groups that don’t have any expertise in climate change, but publish papers that suggest that climate change is responsible for acne, that it starts wars and that it affects women more than men.

They are the ones propelling this end of the world, doomsday, fear based narrative about climate change. And Catherine McKenna, our Minister of Environment and Climate Change, is one of them. Recent tweets made by the minister promoting the idea that climate change is having more of an effect on women than men, demonstrate this.

I reviewed published papers on gender and climate change and there were very few authored or co-authored by actual climate scientists. Many came from sociology, agriculture and anthropology backgrounds – all important fields, but not climate scientists.

The more these people speak on this issue, the more climate change becomes a basis for instilling fear and unfortunately, they dominate the conversation. But the truth is that the debate on the impact and causes of global warming is ongoing and it’s not settled.

People like Catherine McKenna detract from the merits of the real experts that we should be listening to.

Mr. Korea,

At least we are intelligent enough to know that climate change will affect both men and women unlike the ding bat McKenna!

Holly Nicholas, you spin a fine web of deceit. I am thinking that you are just stoking the fire to get all the Neanderthals in here worked up. And with this bunch you will likely succeed. Hooray for you!

However most intellectual people, including the 97% of credible and acknowledged climate scientists from around the world, unequivocally agree that human induced climate change is very real and is having a profound affect on our environment.

It’s a shame that people like you, who obviously have no credentials to speak to the matter, are given a forum to spew your ill-conceived rhetoric. You simply do humanity a disservice.

Apparently the CBC considers themselves to also be experts in the field of climate change. Notice their recent increase in their – not open for comment – stories on the subject. Th influence these have on the “ready to believe anything they are told by the MSM” crowd only serves to obstruct intelligent debate and knowledge.

Seems like the MUSLIBS have really high standards for cabinet ministers. They seem to be a mix of lawyers and academics neither of which has any real world experience except for maybe being ski and drama instructors, barmaids and empty headed ding bats?
We need women in the cabinet, doesn’t matter if they are qualified in any field, put them in there.
When things are broken, call technicians and engineers.
To confound people, call on lawyers and bureaucrats.
The country is broken so these dimwits in the Tower of Babbling Idiots led by the Fool on The Hill, senor El-Bow, are ruining the country.

Robert – the mentality is certainly comparable to Romper Room! This woman hasn’t got a clue about anything.

Another fine example of the “Because it’s 2015” cabinet. This cabinet reminds me of the old children’s show “Romper Room”.

“In other words, McKenna is just another angry bitch out to get even with her past. "

In other words, McKenna is just another angry bitch out to get even with her past [and men].

McKenna is trained as a human rights and social justice lawyer.[from wiki]

In other words, McKenna is just another angry bitch out to get even with her past.
