"Science corruption increased during the 1960s and literally overwhelmed science during the 1970s due to increasing complexities which were met by incompetents through corruption and overwhelm of rationality. Science bureaucrats ran with the corruptions of science instead of correcting them. That result was an inevitable characteristic of the bureaucracies due to the darkness of operating behind closed doors...When rational persons try to correct errors in the bureaucracies, they are called whistleblowers and forced out if not thrown in jail, as endless examples have shown...Then during the 1990s, bureaucrats took their stupidity a step further in requiring a statistical analysis with every number published in the biological sciences...Now days, laboratory scientists are so overwhelmed by everything other than science that they find it impossible to get much done. That degree of overwhelm makes it easy for corrupt scientists and nonscientists to scandalize real scientists out of science for trying to correct errors."
In a court filing responding to a lawsuit filed by John Stossel claiming that he was defamed by a "fact check" Facebook used to label a video by him as "misleading," Meta's attorneys assert that the "fact check" was an "opinion," not an actual check of facts and declaration of facts. Under libel law, opinions are protected from liability for libel.
“We’re in deep, deep doo-doo,” said Suzuki Saturday, speaking at an Extinction Rebellion protest on Vancouver Island. “This is what we’re come to. The next stage after this, there are going to be pipelines blown up if our leaders don’t pay attention to what’s going on.” ... Asked whether or not he would support the bombing of pipelines, Suzuki said, “Of course not.” “The violence is coming from the authorities, from government, from the RCMP,” said Suzuki. “They’re declaring war against those that are protesting.”
Still, Suzuki warned he feels that there are few remaining options for protesters who feel government isn’t moving rapidly enough to tackle climate change. What else is there but violence, he wondered. “I think it’s going to be threatened by groups that feel government isn’t going anything,” Suzuki said.
Bjorn Lomborg: "Hurricanes in 2021 were unprecedented — as in unprecedentedly few. Globally, 2021 had the fewest hurricanes ever in the satellite era (1980-2021). Globally, 2021 had some of the fewest strong hurricanes in the satellite era (1980-2021). With 16 strong (Cat 3+) hurricanes, 2021 was the second-lowest strong hurricane year since 1980. Globally, 2021 was a weak hurricane year. When measured by total energy (Accumulated Cyclone Energy), 2021 was the 9th weakest year. Did you see that reported anywhere?
Hurricanes in 2021 were weak and exceptionally few. But we heard lots about North Atlantic hurricanes. Conveniently, North Atlantic is the only basin where hurricanes are stronger. Does this leave us well-informed?. But we hear lots about names storms (hurricanes + weaker storms). Ever-easier to detect, so numbers keep climbing (4 of 2020s 30 named storms wouldn't have been named in 2000!). Not as relevant, but hey, scary numbers."
