UN Official Says Quiet Part Out Loud: ‘We Own the Science and We Think That the World Should Know It’

UN Official Says Quiet Part Out Loud: ‘We Own the Science and We Think That the World Should Know It’

Melissa Fleming, Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications, owns no portion of real science.

I would like to introduce you to Melissa Fleming, the Under-Secretary-General for Global Communications.

She recently made a disturbing yet revealing remark at a World Economic Forum panel about science.

Melissa Fleming, Under-Secretary for Global Communications at the United Nations at WEF ‘Disinformation’ event: “We partnered with Google,” said Fleming, adding, “for example, if you Google ‘climate change,’ you will, at the top of your search, you will get all kinds of UN resources. We started this partnership when we were shocked to see that when we Googled ‘climate change,’ we were getting incredibly distorted information right at the top. So we’re becoming much more proactive. We own the science, and we think that the world should know it, and the platforms themselves also do.”

During the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Sustainable Development Impact Meetings last week, the unelected globalists held a panel on “Tackling Disinformation” where participants from the UN, CNN, and Brown University discussed how to best control narratives.

Fleming also highlighted that the UN worked with TikTok on a project called “Team Halo” to boost COVID messaging coming from medical and scientific communities on the Chinese-owned video sharing platform. “We had another trusted messenger project, which was called ‘Team Halo’ where we trained scientists around the world and some doctors on TikTok, and we had TikTok working with us,” she said.

Clearly, Fleming takes Dr. Anthony Fauci’s “I am Science” approach to communication. Unfortunately, as I noted in my post on the ideological capture of science, those reporting on highly technical and complex topics do not have a solid educational background or experience in the subjects.

A look at Fleming’s background clearly shows she is in no position to discern what is really true disinformation…..or simply competing theories that can reasonably explain the same set of data as would be required in the correct application of scientific theory. In fact, the schools where she obtained her non-science degrees are not known for allowing robust variety in viewpoints.

Fleming holds a bachelor’s degree in German studies from Oberlin College, Ohio and a masters’ degree in broadcast journalism from Boston University, Massachusetts.

There are many reasonable arguments against the assumptions about Earth’s climate. Furthermore, many aspects of covid that were deemed “misinformation” have now proven to be true…and many of the facts touted by experts are patently false. There are two of many highly technical and complex subjects where robust debate, experimentation, analysis, and hypothesis revising need to occur.

If the scientific approach is short-circuited by people such as Fleming, we will lose many of the gains made by scientists who can offer competing hypotheses. The magnitude of the problem and potential for disaster cannot be overstated.

Germ Theory” was developed in the mid-19th century. The premise, which turned out to be fact, was that certain diseases are caused by the invasion of the body by microorganisms. The French chemist and microbiologist Louis Pasteur, the English surgeon Joseph Lister, and the German physician Robert Koch are given much credit for the development and acceptance of the theory.

However, “experts” in the mid-to-late 19th century dismissed the idea. The result was more death, including that tragic, painful end of President James Garfield. Garfield was shot on July 2, 1881, by Charles Guiteau; the president died in September.

Two days after the shooting, experts, including Frank Hamilton, a surgeon in his late 60s from Bellevue, examined the president, “without pausing to wash their hands or clean their instruments,” Oshinsky notes. Hamilton’s age was a factor, with the old guard less receptive to newfangled ideas about handwashing and instrument cleaning.

As fellow Bellevue veteran Alfred Loomis put it at the time, according to Oshinsky, “The [germ] theory, which so recently has occupied medical men, especially in Germany, is rapidly being disproved, and consequently is rapidly being abandoned.” Loomis, respected enough to also serve as president of the New York Academy of Medicine, mockingly told an audience of his fellow physicians, “People say there are bacteria in the air, but I cannot see them.”

Of course, bacteria don’t care if you believe in them. Infections caused Garfield to lose almost 100 pounds between the shooting and his death, and his autopsy showed that a good part of what was left of him was pus.

Fleming owns no portion of natural science. Americans need to make sure our elected representatives enact policies and enable protections that allow scientists to do real science and ensure competing theories are given proper platforms.

Comments

She misspelled propaganda.

Science *requires* logical and accurate criticism. Science which refuses to be criticized is faith, which explains a lot about the First Church of the Burning Earth, otherwise known as the Global Warming crowd.

Anyone who claims to “own” the science, or “to be” the science or that science is somehow “settled” belies the fact that they are either:

1) completely ignorant of the scientific method
2) a gaslighting tyrant-in-waiting

or perhaps

3) both

Science by Tik Tok……are these people joking or just a joke?

I’m not sure quite how to phrase this, but it’s ironic to see the same people who worship at the altar of pseudo-science like “climate change” and “Socialism”, deny, disrespect and literally try to destroy those who believe in God.

The climatistas are winning by hook and by crook, especially the latter, and Google is fully in bed with changing their search algorithms to help out.

    In the process, Google is damaging their own reputation. It seems that Google’s ego is so large that they cannot see that their credibility is rapidly declining.

    Does everyone remember Google’s “Don’t be evil”, something which the removed long after been evil.

Even if this group was correct in their premises (and they ARE NOT) their attitude and REQUIREMENTS to follow them blindly are extremely disturbing.

You’d think that the mountains of evidence that included scientists pressured to align their findings with a narrow field of propaganda and lies having been published when their site was hacked would have humiliated them, but they still carry on as though they were never caught with their collective pants down.

Remember Nasty Pelosi’s response to the exposure of their Stalin-like tactics? She said “This is about someone stealing this information!!!”

Un-freaking-believable!

Global warming is pure nonsense!

Remember high school chemistry experiments, where everyone followed instructions a compared results?

In theory, if an experiment occurred in UK and Australia, the results should be the same, corrrect?

There are NO tests that can be performed that will prove the global warming non-sense.

Prove me wrong.

The UN wants to micro manage everyone’s decision so BIG BROTHER will control everyone.

The UN is intrinsically evil organization!

Basically they are saying if you don’t agree with us you are stupid and not qualified for you job.

If you are doing science you don’t have to use the tactics of the swindlers in The Emperor’s New Clothes.

This is exactly the kind of media coverage we need to see more of, the kind that prominently identifies the fact that they are WEF and Davos insiders. We’ve just only recently started doing this to Soros stooges and it is making a big difference.

The reason this is so important is because so many of major events (like the Nord 1 and 2 explosions) are being reported only in the context of national interests and political party affiliations rather than in terms of WEF plants embedded in important political and/or functional organizations. The invisible organization that explains much of what is going but goes unmentioned. If we start adding “WEF” or “Davos regular attendees” to the narrative, these major events suddenly begin to make more sense.

Of course, that is just conspiracy theory and as we know, conspiracies only happen in movies.

These major

Well, you can see her perspective: they pay for the research, and determine which research gets funded, so by default, they “own” it.

Think about how much research is funded by the government vs. private industry, and you will see why NIH funding comes with significant strings.

We know globalist leftist elitists ‘own The Science’. They fund it. They have a virtual monopoly on the funding.

That’s why scientists who want a career and research funding dare not question the ‘owners’ and the ‘science’ they own.

When lefties control real science funding, and the real science might conflict with their ‘social’ and ‘political’ ‘science’ orthodoxy, real science takes a back seat and is told it better behave, or else. Real scientists who want their funding and careers to continue make sure ‘the science’ conforms to what their economic and political masters want. See the Soviet Union for many examples.

The same thing happens with so-called ‘social sciences’ and ‘political science’. None of which are sciences at all. They are pseudo sciences with a political agenda. And they never have to answer for their failures. For the failure of their schemes and ‘theories’ when using the population of nations as guinea pigs. They either ignore the failures or dismiss and wave them away with jargon filled rhetoric and sophistry. And/or they just lie.

Marx called his theories, and the theories of his fellow travelers, ‘scientific socialism’.

    1633 April 12 Galileo is accused of heresy

    History.com

    On April 12, 1633, chief inquisitor Father Vincenzo Maculani da Firenzuola, appointed by Pope Urban VIII, begins the inquisition of physicist and astronomer Galileo Galilei. Galileo was ordered to turn himself in to the Holy Office to begin trial for holding the belief that the Earth revolves around the sun, which was deemed heretical by the Catholic Church. Standard practice demanded that the accused be imprisoned and secluded during the trial.

    This was the second time that Galileo was in the hot seat for refusing to accept Church orthodoxy that the Earth was the immovable center of the universe: In 1616, he had been forbidden from holding or defending his beliefs. In the 1633 interrogation, Galileo denied that he “held” belief in the Copernican view but continued to write about the issue and evidence as a means of “discussion” rather than belief. The Church had decided the idea that the sun moved around the Earth was an absolute fact of scripture that could not be disputed, despite the fact that scientists had known for centuries that the Earth was not the center of the universe.

    This time, Galileo’s technical argument didn’t win the day. On June 22, 1633, the Church handed down the following order: “We pronounce, judge, and declare, that you, the said Galileo… have rendered yourself vehemently suspected by this Holy Office of heresy, that is, of having believed and held the doctrine (which is false and contrary to the Holy and Divine Scriptures) that the sun is the center of the world, and that it does not move from east to west, and that the earth does move, and is not the center of the world.”

‘Because we said so’ worked when I was five but not so much at fifteen and not at all once I turned eighteen. I am an adult with considerable life and work experience across multiple fields of endeavor. I posses multiple college degrees. I am more than capable of evaluating the evidence to form a logical conclusion.

The evidence here indicates that the UN, among other bodies, with the assist of big tech, wishes to follow in the path of the NZ PM during Rona who stated ‘we are the source for truth’ referring to her govt’s propaganda efforts and seeking to downplay any dissent from skeptics. Skeptics who were later proven correct when the ‘truth’ was belatedly released.

Anyone who would accept at face value what any govt organization or agency offers up as fact with no examination or questioning is an unserious person. IOW, a lemming who is likely to lose the Darwinian struggle

Ironically, Google’s original Page Rank, code named “Backrub” essentially crowdsourced a page’s value by other pages back-linking to it.

Having traveled through ranking pages to deliver hits to paying advertisers, they now rank pages to deliver propaganda placement to playing, or extorting overlords.

Interesting evolution.

    It’s why they had to drop that pesky ‘Don’t be evil’ corporate motto… the cognitive dissonance became too unbearable, even for a bunch of silicon valley soy bois.

      BierceAmbrose in reply to Paul. | October 5, 2022 at 4:45 pm

      Yeah, some of the stuff Google does under the hood is even sketchier than search-hacking. They gave up on not being evil around when they quietly ditched 20% time. Expanded their DC lobbying presence about then, too.

      Turns out the techno-utopian vision was hard, and wouldn’t fund 3-star catered, party-jet expeditions to Burning Man. Larry and Serge were happy to not be evil until it looked like that might mean having to settle for a smaller private island.

“Sustainable” is code for DEPOPULATION.

Make that mental translation every time you read the blather of these predatory “elites,” and things will begin to make sense.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to nordic prince. | October 4, 2022 at 10:46 am

    Any lifeform that populates to excess is likely to suffer depopulation by the hand of nature. Where humanity is concerned, the higher or population density is, the faster a pathogen will spread, and mutate.

    I think that increasing population degrades quality of life, I am old enough to remember what it was like when America had under 200 million people, I think that we were better off then.

      BierceAmbrose in reply to JohnSmith100. | October 4, 2022 at 4:40 pm

      Long-ish term population projections already have us depopulating, without the need for disasters. See Hans Rosling’s data foundation. (He uses UN data — those pesky wrongthinkers with their suspect science.)

      From the sociology of population, people in aggregate dial back on births and family size with greater GDP per person. They also spontaneously start including environmental impact in their un-coerced choices over about $6,000 annual individualized GDP.

      It seems like if we want fewer people, living better, we ought to help them … live better.

      Populations follow an exponential growth curve for only so long, then it flattens and stabilizes in a “steady state” equilibrium due to naturally limiting factors such as environment, food availability, etc. This is called the logistical growth curve.

      The thing is, we don’t really know what the carrying capacity of the earth is, and any attempts to quantify that cannot take into account future advances in technology that could potentially increase the carrying capacity. The earth is able to sustain many times more people than it could two hundred or even a hundred years ago. Same earth, same amount of space, but we are better able to make use of the environment now compared to then.

      Every time man tries to play God, it ends in disaster. Man- made attempts at population control are no exception.

      The other thing to remember is that these predatory elitists consider virtually ALL of mankind as “excess population” in need of culling. When they speak of “reducing carbon,” YOU are the carbon they want to reduce.

      To paraphrase George Carlin, you ain’t in their club.

Well, she is an Oberlin grad, so……

    JohnSmith100 in reply to star1701gazer. | October 4, 2022 at 10:50 am

    There was a time when Oberlin turned-out well-educated people, as in a generation or two ago. Hiring any from the past ten years would not be a good idea.

From Isaac Asimov’s novel, Foundation:

“Hardin continued: “It isn’t just you. It’s the whole Galaxy. Pirenne heard Lord Dorwin’s idea of scientific research. Lord Dorwin thought the way to be a good archaeologist was to read all the books on the subject—written by men who were dead for centuries. He thought that the way to solve archaeological puzzles was to weigh the opposing authorities. And Pirenne listened and made no objections. Don’t you see that there’s something wrong with that?””

Kinda sums it up nicely, doesn’t it?
