Climate activists “waging war on the mind”

Press Release

A new paper from Net Zero Watch argues that climate alarmists are waging psychological warfare on the public.

Author Stephen McMurray says that professional psychologists are using fear as a weapon to manipulate public behaviour.

McMurray says:

Psychologists are saying, quite openly, that telling people facts doesn’t work, and that psychological pressure should be brought to bear in other ways. Their professional bodies seem to have no interest in preventing this shameful and completely unethical behaviour.”

McMurray says that the Government and Civil Service are also quite open about using psychological warfare against the population at large. Indeed, the view in Whitehall appears to be that fearmongering, as widely applied during the Covid pandemic, was a success, and should be seen as a model for use in the drive for Net Zero.

Civil servants seem quite happy to treat the public as lab rats for them to experiment on as they see fit. They are out of control, and nobody in Government seems to have any interest in stopping them.”
