National Climate Assessment Now Incorporating (checks notes) “Indigenous Knowledge?”
The Native American Rain Dance is a ceremonial dance performed in an effort to summon spirits to cleanse the earth with rain. They believed that if the spirits thought your dance was good enough, crops would grow. Rain was also believed to be a symbol of forgiveness.
To this day, in at least Central California, Kuksu dance rituals are believed to assure the renewal of the world’s foods. Kuksu was personified as a spirit being by the Pomo people.
The Grass Dance is another tribal dance where Native Americans ask “Mother Earth” for strength.
Do any of those dances sound scientific to you? Obviously, not. However, according to the Biden Administration, “indigenous knowledge” is climate science.
The newest report from Washington on climate change says it used “indigenous knowledge” to arrive at its findings, according to the Daily Caller. The fifth National Climate Assessment incorporated this “ knowledge” to assess “the science of climate change and variability and its impacts across the United States.”
This assessment is considered among leftists to be “the most up-to-date and comprehensive U.S. report to evaluate climate change risks, impacts, and responses.”
Last Dec. the Bided Administration formally recognized “Indigenous Knowledge as one of the many important bodies of knowledge that contributes to the scientific, technical, social, and economic advancements of the United States and our collective understanding of the natural world.”
According to the Daily Caller, federal guidance states that when data contradicts Indigenous knowledge, this does “not necessarily indicate that the Indigenous Knowledge or other form of knowledge is in error.”
"This is extremely dangerous," Anna Krylov, a professor at USC told the Washington Free Beacon. "When I conduct experiments, I need to follow the rules and procedures and think about safety. I have to keep track of what I’m doing. I'm not thinking about chants or dancing."
According to the outlet, Canada also began incorporating Indigenous Knowledge into its policymaking. A 2006 Canadian assessment concluded that "the acceptance of spiritual beliefs as ‘knowledge’ by governments was dangerous because it could be used to justify any activity, including actions that were environmentally destructive.”
Scientist Frances Widdowson, who was fired over her criticism in Canada, said that the urge to include Indigenous Knowledge in direct policy implies "irrational beliefs" that they are "noble savage[s]" who have access to wisdom that is out of reach for white people, according to the outlet.
"There’s not an ‘Indigenous Laws of Physics’ and a Laws of Physics," she said. "There’s just the Laws of Physics."
It seems that cherry-picking endpoints in an effort to produce climate “trends” was not working out for the left as they tried to convince people to buy into their climate alarmism. But since 100 percent of climate predictions have been incorrect, they must now resort to spirit dances in an effort to convince the masses.
No matter how hot summer gets, the last that will help is doing a rain dance. And at this point, “climate science” is nothing more than “political science.”
