A Macro-threat like Global Warming was not scaring people enough. Time to switch to a Micro-threat like a pandemic.

Where did global warming go? It seems the media is completly avoiding this topic. Does that sound strange to you? It does to me. According to al gore we should all be dead by now from the perils of global warming. Personally im feeling a little cold.
Now can you see how easily the media controls you?

However, when 1,000's of scientists that study a subject all agree - with very few exceptions - that this is real, why doubt it so much?

You say they do not have sufficient knowledge, but where do you get the idea that you have enough to doubt any form of scientific consensus? Of course it isnt democratic, do you grab a group of peers to see if the pen you throw off the table will drop to the floor? No, you try hard.
You have no reason to doubt anything scientific except an apparently overwhelming urge to defy as much of anything that you can.

"Global warming" wasn't working out so well, so they changed it to "climate change."
