News Briefs 17-04-2006

What better way to start your week than with a topsy-turvy dose of red-pill news?

Quote of the Day:

It’s amazing how much panic one honest man can spread among a multitude of hypocrites.

Thomas Sowell

  1. More views on global warming
    Man, it seems there are so many different takes on climate change coming out, the only thing we can really be sure of is that science really has no damn clue what is going on. Only that something is going on.

    1. no clue – and they all think they’re right
      >>…science really has no damn clue what is going on. Only that something is going on.

      Thrustbucket, you’re spot-on with that observation. If you do a web search or news search for “global warming”AND(“apocalypse”) or “global warming”AND(“Armageddon”), you’ll find hundreds of irate rants on both sides, and hundreds of news articles by reporters who aren’t having much luck sorting out what info to include in a ‘balanced’ report – not least because scientists seem to be changing their minds every week.

      And judging from the book review, if the Jasons figure out what’s going on with the climate, we probably won’t find out about it for at least 10 years. :-/

      Maybe someone should get John Edward to ask some ancient Mayans for their take. 😉


      Edit: I forgot to mention the side issues. Case in point:
      Environmentalism and the apocalypse.

  2. Alien autopsy
    “Santilli, who is played by Declan Donnelly in Alien Autopsy, insists he was trying to “re-create” a real Roswell incident. He claims he bought genuine footage that was badly damaged when it was exposed to the air after 48 years in a can.”

    This interesting footnote about the hoax being based on ‘real’ events should also be read with caution.

    Motion picture film is one of the oldest methods of capturing the moving image and has been in used for over 100 years. The film stock used from 1890’s up to 1953 was ‘nitrate’ film and this will not degenerate when exposed to air, and if the ‘genuine’ footage was on 16mm, then this would have been safety film which is also very stable.

    So, once again, beware!
