A Textbook Example of Alarmist Fear Mongering

A spokesman for the World Wildlife Fund, Professor Ove Hoegh-Gulberg, revealed to a BBC reporter today, just how much the group is not about solid scientific information but rather about inducing as much fear as it can in the public. It must have something to do with the “Fund” part of their name. Whatever the esteemed Professor’s area of expertise is, it is not logic or clear communication.

“I must say that the report (the WWF released today) describes a ‘worst case scenario,’ but it is not as bad as the future we are currently headed for,” said Hoegh-Guldberg.

What? If the report fails to be as bad as reality, how is it anything like a worst-case scenario?

He went on to describe our situation by using the analogy that we are in a car driving straight for a cliff. The choice we must make is to switch to a path just as hard and bumpy as the one we are on that will lead us straight down the face of the cliff. Apparently, either way we are headed down a straight drop.

The report claims that a 0.7-degree rise of temperature has completely changed the way the world’s ocean currents flow. What will happen when we see a 4 or 5-degree rise?

What about a drop? Since 1998 the average world temperature has been dropping, and we are now at levels seen last pre WWII. This is why most alarmists who occasionally do read scientific information have ceased using the words “global warming” in favor of “climate change.” Seems like the WWF is behind the times.
