Author Thomas Sowell argues that public demand for intellectuals is largely manufactured by intellectuals themselves. He says intellectuals make alarming predictions using causes like global warming to create a need for their services.

-----

Thomas Sowell introduces his new book Intellectuals and Society and expounds on what he calls "the fatal misstep of intellectuals" -- the assumption that superior ability within a particular realm can be generalized as superior wisdom or morality over all. He offers examples of this misstep in areas as divergent as economics, the environment, and national defense.

Finally, he warns us to resist the influence of intellectuals and points out that the demand for public intellectuals is largely manufactured by the public intellectuals themselves. - Hoover Institution

Thomas Sowell is an American economist, political writer, and commentator. He is currently a senior fellow of the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. In 1990, he won the Francis Boyer Award, presented by the American Enterprise Institute. In 2002 he was awarded the National Humanities Medal for prolific scholarship melding history, economics, and political science.

Peter M. Robinson is a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, where he writes about business and politics, edits Hoover's quarterly journal, the Hoover Digest, and hosts Hoover's television program, Uncommon Knowledge.

Spraying seawater in the air causes cooling, but , no money in it.❄ the earths temp went up 2 degrees and life expectancy doubled, .. The temp increases over time followed by increases in co2.. That's seems pritty normal... Water vapor and co2 are not actually pollutants... Whirrling and twerreling does get the money goin to somewhere. Follow the $$$.😎

The intellectuals have a product for sale. The market may not exist therefore you create the market. These "intellectuals' create the crisis with one hand and then magically offer their solution (their product) with the other hand.
This plays perfectly with 'Global Warming". It's creating wealth for both the "intellectual" (see Al Gore and Michael Mann) and now for governments around the world a new "tool' for tax collection. Net result, mis-direction of facts and a total conflict of interest!!!! Awful.

I make the observation that 98% of sea level rise, since the end of the most recent Global Ice Age, 11000 years ago, took place before Christ was born. That is why there are ancient villages, towns and cities scattered all over the coastal sea bottoms of the world.

When the ice comes again , and it always has, most of civilization will perish.

Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert is a retired geologist and data computation expert. He has painstakingly examined and tabulated all NASA GISS’s temperature data series, taken from 1153 stations and going back to 1881. His conclusion: that if you look at the raw data, as opposed to NASA’s revisions, you’ll find that since 1940 the planet has been cooling, not warming.

Sowell does a bunch of videos where he puts down black people. White prejudice people hear that and say "you see that, if a black guy says it about black people, it must be true. NOT! Sowell likes the tax cuts for the rich that the Republicans give him, so he supports the party that favors the rich. And in doing so, he supports the party that hurts most blacks(and whites) with their policies. Sowell is a sell out. Now he an expert on Global warming. There is a bunch of videos where they say climate change is a hoax. 99% of scientists agree climate change is real. And why do we want more pollution in the air and water? Be smarter than that. Don't fall for the hoax videos that are sponsored by the coal companies. They care about money not your Health.

If you thought obamacare was expensive, just wait until this takes root. Kiss your future goodbye once the United Nations gets to tax you, too! After all, the NEED your money for to spread around the world to push their agenda! Isn't it unfair that YOU have money when people in other countries don't?

Thomas Sowell is the Truth. If the African American and Latino community would listen to Thomas Sowell we would have a far greater impact on this country. This man is a beacon to our country.

The climate warms and cools naturally.... this man-made focus is a hoax, as is the 97% consensus, they simply hand picked which opinions to count.
