All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

GEORGE MONBIOT

I am rapidly getting to a change of attitude to George Monbiot, hitherto one of the most extreme supporters of the global warming mythology.

The last two issues of my "Guardian Weekly" have contained ground-breaking articles that I support enthusiatically.

The first, in the 4th November issue is entitled

"The Subtle Poison We are all Addicted to"

It is the most swingeing and effective attack on the entire advertising industry I have ever seen. He shows how it stirs up social unrest by persuading people to buy things they do not need with money they do not have, that has to be borrowed from somewhere. It has disrupted our entire social structure by encouraging  people to live beyond their means. Our economic prosperity has become dependent on retail sales, not on productive industry, satisfying family and community relations, or anything that is worthwhile from being human.

He admits that he is attacking the basis of his own career. No media outlet or politician dares say these things as they all depend for their existence on the bribery of the advertisers.

I have spent my life trying to avoid advertising. I wore out several carpets in the early days of television, turning the sound down when the ads appeared and my mute button unfortunately gets seized up rapidly nowadays. Yet I welcome Junk Mail, the most honest form of advertising, since you do not havew to read it and it often gives useful information about what is being sold.

Now, today, (18th issue) Monbiot has yet another article. This time it is called "The 1% are the best destroyers of all time" with a summary "Our common treasury in the last 30 years has been captured by industrial psychopaths. That's why we are nearly bankrupt" and "the very rich are not wealth creators: they have preyed on the Earth and have impoverished both people and the planet."

So he is still on about "the planet", but somebody is beginning to understand what all those protesting people all over the world are really protesting about.

Cheers

Vincent Gray
