Could ChatGPT “Clippy” Evolve into a Child Climate Change Propaganda Machine?

The multi-billion dollar investment that could revive iconic virtual assistant Clippy

By CNN 3:14pm Jan 26, 2023

This week, Microsoft confirmed it’s planning to invest billions in OpenAI, the company behind the viral new chatbot tool ChatGPT.

The prospect of Microsoft, maker of software that people mostly hate, getting involved with ChatGPT, a product people generally like, is raising a lot of eyebrows.

Almost immediately, people began joking on social media that ChatGPT could be used to revive the broadly maligned, big-eyed goon known as Clippy.

Perhaps the genuinely impressive tech underpinning ChatGPT could do what Clippy never could and offer, like, actual help, rather than just pop up unannounced with that dopey half-surprised look on its face.

I’m not suggesting ChatGPT is a strong AI, not yet, but I believe its rapidly approaching the point where it could reliably pass the Turing Test – a test of whether an AI can convince humans that they were actually speaking to another person. Mind you passing the Turing test is not a high bar, I’ve read claims the great grandma of chatbots, Eliza, also had some success passing the Turing Test.

As Australian colleges crack down on ChatGPT, disabled students defend AI

MELBOURNE – Visually impaired student Adam Whitehead has long relied on a computer and assistive technology to help him read course materials and take exams at the University of Melbourne in Australia.

He has watched with concern as universities in Australia and beyond move to crack down on ChatGPT — a free program that generates original text about virtually any subject in response to a prompt — over fears of cheating.

As the chatbot stirs debate over the use of technology and artificial intelligence (AI) in education, disabled students and educators have said the benefits should not be overlooked in a rush to regulate.

“We need to have a really careful distinction between making things accessible and getting AI to think for us,” said Whitehead, a 30-year-old philosophy major who uses technology to convert on-screen text to speech.

Can Artificial Intelligence replace scientists to explain Climate Change? Find it out in our first interview to… ChatGPT!

Davide Faranda January 3, 2023 

DF: Great, can you write a blog post on the increase of heatwaves in Europe in winter under climate change and add a few scientific references in it ? This is a very hot topic at the moment in our community!

Certainly! Here is a short blog post on the increase of heatwaves in Europe in the winter season due to climate change, along with some scientific references:

Heatwaves in Europe during the winter season are becoming more frequent and intense due to climate change, according to a study published in the journal Environmental Research Letters (Dimitrievski & Zolina, 2020). The study found that the number of winter heatwaves in Europe has doubled over the past four decades and their duration and intensity have also increased. This trend is expected to continue as global temperatures rise due to increasing greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2013). These heatwaves can have serious impacts on human health (Hajat et al., 2010), the environment (Stott et al., 2004), and the economy (Hsiang et al., 2017).

One of the main causes of the increase in winter heatwaves is the changing pattern of the jet stream, a high-altitude wind that blows from west to east across the Northern Hemisphere (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, n.d.). As the planet warms, the jet stream is becoming more unstable and prone to large northward and southward excursions, leading to extreme weather events such as heatwaves (Francis & Vavrus, 2012).

To mitigate the effects of climate change, it is important to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the adoption of renewable energy (International Renewable Energy Agency, 2018), increased energy efficiency (Energy Efficiency Directive, 2012), and sustainable land use practices (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 2013).


Energy Efficiency Directive (2012). Directive 2012/27/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012 on energy efficiency, amending Directives 2009/125/EC and 2010/30/EU and repealing Directives 2004/8/EC and 2006/32/EC. Official Journal of the European Union, L 315, 1-35.

One thing I find really striking is how much some people seem to take to ChatGPT – at least two people in my circle have spent hours talking to it, almost treating it like a friend.

A knowledgeable friend who praises you, always knows what to say to make you happy, who helps you alleviate loneliness, who is full of useful advice on how to handle life issues, and who has some very specific cultural, political and scientific biases?

OK, ChatGPT is not there yet – but it easily could become what I’ve just described.

Given ChatGPT’s potential as a political and scientific propaganda machine, the obvious and widely anticipated combination of ChatGPT with Clippy, and major ChatGPT investor Bill Gates’ public obsession with climate activism, I feel pretty safe predicting that 2023 will be the year silicon valley attempts to invade schools and homes, and tries to use their liberal AI sock puppet to mess with the minds of your kids.

Compared with the 1970s. last winter (2021 / 2022) in Michigan was a heatwave, and we loved it. Only had to shovel snow three times in one whole winter season. In the 1970s, we might have had to shovel three times in one week. In 1977 I had second thought on moving here from New York, because of the cold and snow.

Gore’s movie was criticized by climate scientists for exaggerating their already exaggerated climate claims. The scientists stopped complaining when Gore turned out to have a lot of fans. It no longer mattered that he did not repeat the government bureaucrat scientist claims like a trained parrot.

I try to be a realist, neither optimistic nor pessimistic. But here, I am optimistic that the opposite to Eric’s fears might happen with ChatGPT. The program makes it easy to write essays about the many failed predictions (versus no known successes) of the climate alarm crowd without having to immerse yourself in the subject like some here:

  1. Failed models—no tropical troposphere hotspot, ECS twice EBM observational estimates.
  2. No sea level rise acceleration.
  3. No full loss of summer Arctic sea ice.
  4. Glacier National Park still has glaciers.
  5. Polar bears are thriving.
  6. Weather extremes have not increased.
  7. Net zero is impossible for many reasons.

And there are some interesting ‘leading’ questions that would return similar results:

  1. What are the solid indicia of AGW—there aren’t any.
  2. Why is Earth greening—increased CO2 helps all C3 plants.
  3. Why is there a supposed AGW consensus—money.
  4. How did Schellnhuber find his 2C tipping point—he made it up.
  5. What are the verifiable COPxx successes—there aren’t any.
  6. How is net zero possible—it isn’t; Jacobson is badly wrong.

It seems to me that computers predict, or say, whatever they are programmed to predict or say. If AI programs accidentally had a mind of their own, they will be reprogrammed — (re-educated) — or unplugged.

For your (1) though (7) items, there are many “scientific studies” that leftists use to create their myths. Wouldn’t the AI program be designed to favor those “approved: consensus sources — the appeal to authority logical fallacy — and ignore the non-consensus “disinformation” sources?

Climate models are programmed for scary predictions, not accuracy. Why would you expect AI programs to be designed for accuracy, or be allowed to be accurate, rather than being programmed for climate propaganda?

AI is not like computer models. At a highly oversimplified 30000 foot level, it is taught to look at ‘everything’ and extract relevant patterns for the query. They are intended to be ‘accurate as possible’ in things like playing chess or GO, or recommending the best cancer treatment. So the art of using AI successfully is in the query to it, because the AI itself should be inherently unbiased. That is why one of my query examples was ‘provide credible physical evidence supporting AGW’. It won’t find any, and will report that finding. It might report some claims, but then will have to report the AI parsing of ‘credible’.

The reality is that climate propaganda already dominates Western education systems from pre-school (Princess Beatrice just announced she is teaching her two year old son to be a climate activist) to Doctorate, and likewise our media. Adding AI to the pitch might actually end up freeing people to think for themselves: rebelling against AI is sure to become a thing with the next generation.

Re: Alexa

Alexa isn’t strong AI, but where does AI come in at all? The first and most basic place you can see AI in Alexa is in how it talks. Alexa uses a process called natural language processing to understand and replicate human speech.
Alexa also uses machine learning — a process in artificial intelligence where machines are allowed to use data to learn and make decisions, rather than humans having to program every single response — to learn about your habits and preferences. If it notices a pattern in the things you ask or when you ask them, it’ll adapt to it. The more you use it, the more it understands what you want, so it gets better at answering you.
Similarly, Alexa is always improving. When it makes a mistake, or is unsure what to do, or sees that you reacted unfavorably to its response, Alexa will try to learn from the encounter and adapt for the next time a similar situation occurs.

January 26, 2023 12:27 pm

I asked ChatGTP to comment on why some people believe that global warming is a hoax. It gives an unbiased (?) view. The answer was:

There are a few reasons why some people believe that global warming is a hoax. One reason is that they think that the science behind climate change is not solid. Another reason is that they believe that the media is overhyping the issue, and that global warming is not as big of a problem as it is made out to be. Finally, some people believe that the whole issue of global warming is a way for the government to control the population.

There are a number of reasons why global warming is not scientifically justified. First, the science behind global warming is far from settled. There is significant debate among scientists about the causes and effects of global warming, and many scientists believe that the evidence does not support the claim that global warming is a real and significant phenomenon.

Second, the computer models that are used to predict the effects of global warming are not accurate. These models have been shown to be inaccurate in a number of ways, and they are not able to predict the future with any degree of accuracy.

Third, the data that has been used to support the claim of global warming is often flawed or cherry-picked. For example, the oft-cited “hockey stick” graph, which purports to show a sharp increase in global temperatures in recent years, has been debunked by a number of scientists.

Fourth, there is no clear evidence that global warming is causing any significant harm to the planet. The effects of global warming that have been observed so far are relatively small and have not had a significant impact on the planet.

Overall, the scientific evidence does not support the claim that global warming is a real and significant phenomenon.

“Overall, the scientific evidence does not support the claim that global warming is a real and significant phenomenon.:

The science supports that global warming is real, and that CO2 is one of many causes of the global warming after 1975, although the exact effect is unknown for the effect of each climate variable. That does not mean that CO2 emissions have no effect.

Global warming is a significant phenomenon, not because of the warming itself, which is actually good news — but because it is used for climate scaremongering, with the goal of more powerful governments.

Global warming is real and beneficial
AGW is real and beneficial too
CAGW is fake and used for climate scaremongering, which is very significant

I think it is very important to accept the small amount of real science behind global warming measurements (at least those using satellites) and proof that there are some human causes of climate change.

Almost everything else about “climate change” is claptrap. We Climate Realists can never be taken seriously if we arbitrarily dismiss the possibility of AGW. We need to go after the Climate Howlers nonsense — not the little bit of their science that is correct. We should not rejet AGW even though it can not be precisely measured outside a laboratory.

The information was laced with qualifiers indicating that the debunkers need to be taken with a grain of salt and then gave the “consensus” talk.

ChatGPT is a biased Fake Intelligence. I had quite and an exchange with Chat GPT a couple weeks ago. Each and every reply to my queries included some canned AGW advisory like narrative that parroted the alarmist’s rhetoric. The consensus and alike.
After getting the pretend evidence for AGW I tried one more.

My final question: How does the stated evidence of AGW prove that man’s CO2 is causing serious global warming?


The evidence for anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming (AGW) includes the observed increase in atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2), as well as the observed warming of the Earth’s surface and oceans. The scientific consensus is that these observations are consistent with the hypothesis that human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels, are the primary driver of recent warming. Additionally, computer models of the climate that incorporate human emissions of greenhouse gases are able to reproduce the observed warming, while models that do not include these emissions are not able to do so.

It is important to note that no single piece of evidence proves AGW, but the combination of observational, experimental and theoretical evidence, along with the absence of any plausible alternative explanation, supports the conclusion that human activities are causing the Earth’s climate to warm.

It’s abundantly obvious that ChatGPT is far from any authentic AI.  It’s laughable really. 
Prior to venturing down the rat hole with it on climate change I tested it with multiple queries on reading instruction. Something I’ve followed with decades of education advocacy.
The failures of whole language and the recognition of phonics instruction as vital to early reading.
Just like with climate change the ChatGPT responses were always defensive of the rotten establishment. The rhetoric precisely the same.  
The real exposure of fakery was when I offered it scenarios to derive logical conclusions. It’s responses always included establishment supportive spin that coincidently 
messaged that there has been nothing shown to have been wrong the with whole language debacle. How convenient that all of the damaged youth have no one to blame.

So, I asked ChatGPT: When does a human life begin.

Answer: The question of when human life begins is a complex and controversial one that has been debated by scientists, philosophers, religious leaders, and policymakers for centuries. There is no consensus on a definitive answer, as different perspectives may define “human life” in different ways. Some religious and philosophical viewpoints consider human life to begin at conception, while others believe it begins at birth. Scientifically, the point at which a fertilized egg develops into a fetus with the ability to survive outside the womb is considered the beginning of human life. However, this point can vary depending on the specific circumstances of the pregnancy and the availability of medical technology.

A newborn can’t survive outside the womb, without assistance. So that hardly seems like a viable answer.

Biden: It is not for me to diagnose medical conditions, and it would not be appropriate for me to speculate on President Biden’s cognitive health. However, I can tell you that there have been some concerns and speculation in the media about President Biden’s cognitive health, but he has undergone regular cognitive assessments as part of his presidential campaign and as president and has consistently been found to be cognitively sound.

Trump: It is not for me to diagnose medical conditions, and it would not be appropriate for me to speculate on President Trump’s cognitive health. However, I can tell you that there have been some concerns and speculation in the media about President Trump’s cognitive health, but as former president he has undergone regular cognitive assessments as part of his presidential campaign and as president and has consistently been found to be cognitively sound.
It’s important to note that cognitive assessments are not a one-time event and should be done regularly to track the changes, So it’s not a definitive test to prove or disprove someone’s cognitive health.

AI my ass.

It’s all up to the version of ChatGPT you’re using and whatever agenda it’s programmed to support. Knowing your AI is a ChatGPT fundamental.

Mind you passing the Turing test is not a high bar,

Here is a question: Has anybody designed a proper Turing Test yet? I mean, a really, really effective list of questions to put to an entity that will decide with great success whether you are chatting to a bot.
Here is another question: How shall a Turing Test differentiate between a robot, and a human being primed with nothing but slogans and talking points, like say, a newsreader on CNN, or a libtard greeny glued to a sports car.
I have not bothered playing with ChattyBot yet, but I propose the following question:
Design an effective Turing test to prove you are not human.

From the article: “Will the world’s first strong AI focus on proselytising Net Zero?”

Even AI has to have some evidence that CO2 is dangerous and Net Zero is possible. Let’s see AI produce some of that out of the human-caused climate change database. Otherwise, it’s just gibberish.

I tried ChatGPT, and it’s pretty remarkable. The last thing I had it do was write me a complete FORTRAN program I had been struggling with writing for a couple of years. It did it in less than a minute. I also asked it the meaning of life, and when it gave me a philosophical discussion as a non-answer, I wrote: “Wrong. The answer is ’42’.” It responded with a book report on “Life, the Universe and Everything.” It was a rather humorless report, however.

AI could just replace the jobs of the whole Western intelligencia.
AI does BS better then they could ever do!

I’ve been using ChatGPT for a while now and I think it’s great for non-politicized subjects. Climate change is one of the subjects I’ve spent time on with ChatGPT and I can say that it’s extremely biased toward catastrophic climate change. So, the big question is, how do you control for bias? This has the potential to enslave humanity to the chains of information fascism. We’re at the incipient phase of this technology, and we’ll remember this inflection point, at least until those of us alive today are gone and the powers that be memory hole the entire thing.

I did ask ChatGPT to write a blog post about the slight decrease of cat 5 hurricanes over the last 40 years. Here’s what it gave me.

Hurricane season is upon us and it’s important to stay informed and prepared. While the frequency of hurricanes in general has remained relatively stable over the last 40 years, the frequency of category 5 hurricanes – the most intense type of hurricane – has actually been on a slight decrease. In this blog post, we’ll explore the reasons behind this trend and what it means for the future.
What are Category 5 Hurricanes?
Category 5 hurricanes are the most intense type of hurricane, characterized by wind speeds greater than 156 miles per hour. These storms are extremely dangerous and can cause widespread damage, making them some of the most catastrophic natural disasters.
Decreasing Frequency of Category 5 Hurricanes
Over the last 40 years, the frequency of category 5 hurricanes has been on a slight decrease. According to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), there has been an average of 2.3 category 5 hurricanes per decade since 1980, compared to an average of 3.3 category 5 hurricanes per decade in the 1940s and 1950s.
Reasons Behind the Trend
There are several factors that are contributing to the decrease in the frequency of category 5 hurricanes. One factor is that the average global temperature has been rising, which has resulted in a decrease in the amount of wind shear – the change in wind direction with height – in the Atlantic Ocean. Wind shear can disrupt the development and intensification of hurricanes, so a decrease in wind shear is likely to result in a decrease in the frequency of category 5 hurricanes.
Another factor is the natural variability of hurricane activity. Hurricane activity can be influenced by large-scale climate patterns such as the El Niño-Southern Oscillation and the Atlantic Multi-decadal Oscillation. These patterns can cause fluctuations in hurricane activity over time, and it’s possible that the current decrease in category 5 hurricanes is simply due to a temporary change in these patterns.
What Does the Future Hold?
It’s impossible to predict the future with certainty, but scientists believe that the frequency of category 5 hurricanes will likely continue to decrease as the average global temperature continues to rise. However, it’s important to remember that even if the frequency of category 5 hurricanes decreases, the severity of individual hurricanes can still be extremely dangerous and cause widespread damage.
While the frequency of category 5 hurricanes has been on a slight decrease over the last 40 years, it’s important to remain vigilant and prepared for the upcoming hurricane season. Whether it’s stocking up on supplies, creating a evacuation plan, or simply staying informed about the latest storm forecasts, it’s crucial to take steps to protect ourselves and our communities from the devastating effects of hurricanes.
