(LifeSiteNews) – This spring, Harvard Medical School is slated to begin implementing a new curriculum geared toward getting future doctors to incorporate climate activism into their practices.
The Boston Globe reports that instead of adding new classes specifically devoted to the subject, the curriculum approved in January will be incorporating into existing classes material on how “climate change” affects human health, how health care systems supposedly contribute to the phenomenon, and how doctors can “be part of the solution.”
Examples included amending lessons on health problems caused by extreme temperatures to include claims that “climate change” is the underlying cause of those temperatures, and “climate advocacy as a way for medical students and physicians to support their patients” incorporated into an introductory course on the “responsibilities and expectations of medical students and doctors,” something Harvard already did last year and the new curriculum will expand upon.
“We thought about [courses] individually and, one by one, worked on curricular content in close collaboration with both the faculty course directors who run the course and faculty experts,” said Julia Malits, a fourth-year student and member of the student group that convinced school administrators to adopt the curriculum.
The G20 meeting this October will see the most powerful nations in the world - the U.S., Canada, the U.K., the E.U., Australia, India, China, Russia and Brazil among others - discuss climate policies that are already affecting billions of people around the world.
This powerful cadre of international leaders wants the world to run on solar and wind power, forcing an end to the use of gas, oil and nuclear power, as well as crushing beef farmers because of supposed methane emissions.
But the harsh impact of such policies is already being felt, with energy blackouts and soaring inflation hammering people around the world, making it beyond time for all of us to speak out.
SIGN: Tell G20 leaders that their radical climate policies are making basic foods, fuel, heating and electricity increasingly unaffordable for normal citizens.
As western leaders turn off the oil spigots and impose draconian restrictions on farmers, we've all experienced the pain of increased prices, not least at the pump and the grocery store.
This inflation was entirely avoidable if only our politicians prioritized food and energy security over climate theories, but instead they have succumbed to radical environmentalists whose agenda would cripple the livelihoods and living standards of much of the globe.
Communities all around you are feeling the weight of crushing price hikes, which will soon reach your own food isles and gas pumps if it hasn't already.
The effects of inflation are being felt in the developing world most, as fuel and food prices sky rocket, making even worse poverty an inevitabilty for hundreds of millions of people.
Reality will hit home for us soon.
The harshest effects of energy shortages will be felt this winter in the west, when our leaders' decisions to cut oil supplies and reject Russian natural gas will:
- force heating, fuel and electricity prices to sky rocket
- continue to make food more expensive
- risk a global depression as inflation spirals out of control
- prompt more blackouts
- make civil unrest a real possibility
The media are already preparing people for rolling blackouts. States like California and countries like England are warning citizens that they face severe electricity and gas shortages.
Now is the time to speak out and be part of a movement that can prevent this disaster spreading.
SIGN the petition calling on international leaders to abandon their reckless energy agenda and return the world to economic stability.
The entire climate change industry is based on models that have been consistently inaccurate for decades, with Al Gore among the most infamous prophets of doom to be proven wrong.
In 2009 Gore told the COP15 climate change conference in Copenhagen that the North Pole would be ice-free by 2014, a claim that remains wildly off the mark.
Arctic sea ice has increased since 2012 and is now close to the average for 1991-2000 – another inconvenient fact for climate change alarmists, alongside thriving polar bears and more coral on the Great Barrier Reef. https://t.co/3m7jcaj1hV— Toby Young (@toadmeister) September 1, 2022
Al Gore is not alone in getting things wrong however, as this brief timeline of scaremongering headlines proves:
The world needs to wake-up to what's really happening: our lives are being upended on the basis of climate theories and models that have been consistently wrong for decades.
It's time to stop the scaremongering and push back against the radical agenda of international elites.
SIGN & SHARE: Tell G20 leaders that their radical climate policies are making basic foods, fuel, heating and electricity increasingly unaffordable for normal citizens.
“I really commend students for leading the charge here and across the country,” said Dr. Gaurab Basu, Harvard Medical’s new climate and health curriculum theme director and co-director of the Cambridge Health Alliance’s Center for Health Equity Education.
As of 2022, 55% of medical schools in the United States teach students the health effects of “climate change,” according to an Association of American Medical Colleges survey. That amount, up from just 27% in 2019, has been attributed in large part to student activists.
At a time when the response to COVID-19 has resulted in unprecedented mistrust for the medical profession, however, pushing future physicians to incorporate yet another left-wing cause into their practices is likely to exacerbate that mistrust further still.
Activists claim there is a “97 percent scientific consensus” in favor of anthropogenic global warming (AGW)—the view that human activity, rather than natural phenomena, is primarily responsible for Earth’s changing climate—but that number distorts an overview of 11,944 papers from peer-reviewed journals, 66.4 percent of which expressed no opinion on the question; in fact, many of the authors identified with the AGW “consensus” later spoke out to say their positions had been misrepresented.
Further, contrary to claims that people are dying due to “climate change,” data from the International Disasters Database show that “climate related deaths” (i.e., deaths due to floods, droughts, storms, wildfires, and extreme temperatures) have dramatically and steadily declined since the 1920s.
AGW proponents suffered a blow in 2010 with the discovery that their leading researchers at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, East Anglia Climate Research Unit, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration had engaged in widespread data manipulation, flawed climate models, misrepresentation of sources, and suppression of dissenting findings.
In March 2019, Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore called AGW alarmism a “complete hoax and scam,” a “kind of toxic combination of religion and political ideology” that is “as bad a thing that has happened to science in the history of science.”
