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.

Three Cheers for 'Human Achievement Hour'

The disgraceful panic over rising CO2 levels has led to many harms, not least to the mental well-being of children, and the physical well-being of just about everyone.  The jejune 'Earth Hour' is but one manifestation of the rot that has spread into many groups, organisations, and even governments.

Celebrate 'Human Achievement Hour' instead:   https://cei.org/humanachievementhour

Or, how about 'Energy Hour':  https://climatelessons.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/earth-hour-is-phoney-energy-hour-is.html
