Caution: this is not a post involving Amateur Radio.
The root of my concern began while trying to sort out the whole Global Warming Business. Accent on Business please. Its not only a business but it is also the Religion of Gaia. Not particularly fun to write about this following Deep Horizon but I addressed that issue in a prior post. Today’s renewal of my concern stems from a guest post at “Watts Up With That” blog by a fellow named Willis Eschenbach. You really should read it Here . The article is not arcane in the least and it frames perfectly my concerns about modern living.It is a quick five minute read.
In the aforementioned article Eschenbach researches quotes made by Reuters viz ice melting or going away. The source was published in a journal called GRL. When doing a google on selected search terms he found an amazing number of published web references to this same Reuters cited journal article, which coincidentally does not exist. That my friends is the root cause of my concerns. This is not a unique event. In a broader sense this is more new normal than not.
I researched for a sane baseline of truth for almost three years WRT Global Warming. Until the publication of FOIA.zip it was an impossible task. Mostly rooted in establishment scientist community discrediting legitimate framers of valid questions. But that is a small chunk of the problem. GW is small potatoes compared to say, financial reporting, News, process reporting within Government etc.
The withering flow of information, disinformation and out right propaganda is alarming. How does one go about filtering right/wrong, truth/fabrication and of course the corollary is how does one make an informed decision which is basic to good government? Good living?
The informational ground we stand on seems to be a movable bit of property. In a situation like I have described, basic principles wont help because you can only make an honest decision on hard facts, and vested interests seems to be in control of our available data. It is enough to make one seasick.
Thanks for reading my Blog. Best, Chas W5PG
