Unfortunately, some misuse science. Some of their intentions, are far from benevolent. They see science as a mechanism for political power and control. There is great danger from those who would use science for political control over us.

How do they do this? They instill, and then continuously magnify, fear. Fear is the most effective instrument of totalitarian control.

Clearing up the Mess produced by Climate Alarmism: watch out for Nolans and Baizuos.

The damage done to children and other vulnerable groups by the climate alarmists has yet to be quantified and assessed, but seems likely to be deep and extensive.  Here is one recent example: young women, whose entire education could have been contaminated with climate alarmism, are agonising over whether or not to have children:  http://wgntv.com/2018/01/31/climate-change-is-impacting-some-womens-decisions-to-have-children/

This blog will continue to report on people and materials that can help those who wish to repair such damage over the coming decades.

Here are a couple of types of people who will get in the way of such efforts: nolans and baizuos.

NOLAN /di’khe’d/ A bigoted blowhard, someone unwilling to listen to other points of view, someone who thinks they have licence to cast moral judgement upon others, someone who makes a show of being independently minded, intellectually rigorous and scrupulously impartial but is in fact someone who toes the party line and is in reality no more than a PC ‘bot’ churning out the Liberal Establishment orthodoxy whilst suppressing inconvenient facts. Alternate /J.O’Brien/

BAIZUO.  'The word 'baizuo' is, according to political scientist Zhang Chenchen, a Chinese word that ridicules Western “liberal elites”. He further defined the word “baizuo” with the definition “People who only care about topics such as immigration, minorities, LGBT and the environment” and “have no sense of real problems in the real world”; they are hypocritical humanitarians who advocate for peace and equality only to “satisfy their own feeling of moral superiority”; they are “obsessed with political correctness” to the extent that they “tolerate backwards Islamic values for the sake of multiculturalism”; they believe in the welfare state that “benefits only the idle and the free riders”; they are the “ignorant and arrogant westerners” who “pity the rest of the world and think they are saviours”. The term has also been used to refer to perceived double standards of the Western media, such as the alleged bias on reporting about Islamist attacks in Xinjiang.  The use of the word “Baizuo” could be an insult on the Chinese Internet.'
'Baizuo' is apparently pronounced 'buy-tshwaah'
