Scientists use TikTok to explain, fight climate change

Finally the real reason why Tiktok is banned in US is because government doesn't want their people to learn about climate change on Tiktok, just keep habit until the earth can no longer sustain.

Climate scientists or climate alarmists? Inquiring minds want to know.

Science and scientists? Beware. Science doesn’t even fit to TikTok and their users and scientists would at least know that, and additionally would also know that the platform is not a good choice because widely known and banned as a potential Chinese spy tool. They are only green propaganda spreaders, using that network for fast multiplication and knowing those simple people won’t question their ideology.

Seeing as no intelligent person has ever classified them as alarmists, they are clearly scientists.

Too much Fox News for you. They lie to you, you know.

I don't hate anyone but listening to anything that a high school kid has to say about science is peak stupidity.

Heh, you guys sure spend a LOOOOOT of time being angry about that high school kid.

Seems you guys give her opinion an inordinate amount of weight.

The media certainly gave her far too much attention and her stupid climate strikes that did real damage to the educational attainment of underprivileged youth.

Yes, and you guys hating her and commenting on every topic on her, talking about how much she sucks as a high school girl definitely took away from that attention, right?

her stupid climate strikes that did real damage to the educational attainment of underprivileged youth.

Heh, so she DOES scare you guys. So scary, that autistic high school girl, right?

I mean, let's be honest, without the hatred and focus of the right, no one would even know her name.

She should be thanking the right for ensuring her message is amplified to the youth.

Have their reports validated and congruent with the consensus? yes. That means they are scientists except on the mind of anti-scientific groups that try to represent anything they don't want to accept as false.

Science doesn’t even fit to TikTok and their users and scientists would at least know that,

What logic argument can you use to prove this claim? one of the roles scientist are supposed to fulfill is the spreading of scientific knowledge, not only to their peers but to the population in general. As long as the knowledge is spread without being twisted, falsified or misrepresented then the medium used for that purpose is fit.

The article is talking more about high schoolers being exposed to scientific findings, not the opposite. But even if that was the case there are plenty of High School kids that have a valid insight about science, and listening to their personal perspective about it (for example what they expect from it, or what kind of things they found more interesting) can be very educative, even for scientists.

Only FOX/Trump people would pick on little kids expressing their opinions about climate change. How mean.

If it's all a hoax then you are welcome to buy up costal properties and see which direction their values go. Look at Miami Beach area for a start and what's happening on Australia coasts (and it's not taking thousands of years before man had any real CO2 influence).
