Climate Change Script; Need Some Pointers

Post by Red » Fri Jul 05, 2019 8:25 pm

Climate Change is an obviously real, man-made phenomenon. I might need some help with writing this script since there is so much bullshit out there from deniers. (climate's always changing, etc)

I said on the other thread I am currently working on my next video, which will be about climate change. I want to make sure I have the video make as concrete of a case for climate change as possible. I've made some pretty decent progress on the script, I'll send you guys the final draft soon.

I'd start with something like this: "The pseudoscience that had the most dangerous results were probably the Trofim Lysenko's agricultural recomendations. They played a major role in the Great Chinese Famine of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Anti-nuclear movement and climate-change denial are similar in their logic to Lysenkoism, and can easily end up being about as dangerous, if not even more."

Teo's idea is good, focusing on the harms of pseudoscience, and talking about the consequences of doing nothing about climate change if it's true and if we can afford that gamble (for people on the fence). Then cover the evidence.
