Multiple major news outlets around the world, ranging from Scientific American and The Columbia Journalism Review to The Guardian and even Al Jazeera, have signed a pledge to begin referring to “climate change” – the theory that the world will soon come to an end unless Americans stop having a good time – as a “climate emergency” when they report on it. Worldwide gaslighting has begun.
On Monday, the Woke magazine Scientific American took to social media to announce to its nearly four million followers that it will change how it refers to the watermelon theories of the Left.
“Scientific American has agreed with major news outlets worldwide to start using the term ‘climate emergency’ in its coverage of climate change. Read our statement about this decision, and the impact we hope it can have throughout the media landscape.”

In other words, Scientific American has been compromised by Woke politics. You can’t trust any science that is based on a so-called consensus. That’s how they pushed climate change, and that’s not how science works.
I call them watermelon theories because just like everything else in the Left’s world of global warming turned climate change, the new theory climate emergency is green on the outside and socialist red on the inside. I’m still waiting for them to blame coronavirus on climate change. I mean, why not?
The headline the magazine went with was “We Are Living in a Climate Emergency, and We’re Going to Say So,” published on Monday.
Declaring climate change as “the biggest environmental emergency to beset the earth in millennia,” the commentary announced the name change:
“Given the circumstances, Scientific American has agreed with major news outlets worldwide to start using the term ‘climate emergency’ in its coverage of climate change.”
Scientific American claims that more than 400 media organizations have signed a statement that was coordinated by Covering Climate Now, a global watermelon journalism initiative.
The Woke Supremacy now has a junk science wing that will work in conjunction with DC Democrats to come up with ways of taking more of your money through higher taxation to pay for the gobbledygook programs they’re going to throw at us, the great unwashed. The Left pushed its sky-is-falling alarmism rhetoric for decades and outside of a small percentage of numb-brained leftist suckers who buy into the scam, most Americans think of people who adhere to the Woke rituals of climate change as wacky mental patients walking around in bathrobes who will remain harmless so long as you don’t go near them. But now the situation is getting serious because supposed serious people have been assimilated into the Woke and they have the power to change your life for the worse.
One has to wonder how much Scientific American spoke with the Biden administration over this. When you read a statement from a supposed scientific magazine that say, “Why ‘emergency’? Because words matter. To preserve a livable planet, humanity must take action immediately,” it becomes pretty clear that they have colluded with the Democrats on pushing for things like the disastrous Green New Deal. They are speaking the language of such climate scholars as Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) (AOC), Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and the whackos running the Biden administration.
Folks, that’s alarmism. There is no real-world evidence of what they claim is happening. Everything they present to the world in their white papers and symposiums and books sold on Amazon is based on computer models. I am a computer programmer in another life and I can tell you right now I can write any program that someone pays me to build that will give them the results that they want. Have we learned nothing from East Anglia’s climate change department having their emails and documents hacked that revealed they were making it all up? The climate mafia spent a lot of money propagandizing the hack in order to get their reputations back.
The first evidence I would present if before a board of climate quacks is the embarrassing history of alarmism predictions. In short, their predictions of gloom and doom never come true.
In 2005, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) warned that imminent sea-level rises, increased hurricanes, and desertification caused by “man-made global warming” would lead to massive population disruptions. In a handy map, the organization highlighted areas that were supposed to be particularly vulnerable in terms of producing “climate refugees.” Especially at risk were regions such as the Caribbean and low-lying Pacific islands, along with coastal areas. None of it came true, but this is the nonsense the watermelon people are now trying to blame for economic migrants hitting our southern border. They’re trying to say climate change is why the United States is taking in hundreds of thousands of migrants who illegally cross our border and not that they are trying to do to America what they did to California by replacing American voters with new voters who will be more obedient at the ballot box.
“The media’s response to Covid-19 provides a useful model,” the statement says, basically pushing how the leftist media, including social media tech tyrants, are able to control the narrative by censoring any opposing viewpoints while shoving their ideological fallacies down our throats declaring everything they want to push with expediency as an “emergency.” Never let a good crisis go to waste.
For now, the watermelon people are saying you can still call it climate change, but you are now required to refer to it as a climate emergency. This is no different from how the Left that controls means of communication – mainstream media and social media – forced the idea that the theft of the 2020 election was a Big Lie. The climate nuts are lying their rear ends off to you about climate change being man-made so that you feel guilty enough that you’ll allow their stupid green programs to be funded by your tax dollars.
