Blue and Red Pills

There are a lot of people who simply are content to be. Given a choice, they’d take the blue pill and sleep. I was amazed last week to find out that a BBC journalist fits that category. He writes well actually. However, he writes BBC propaganda. Stories designed to scare, worry and manipulate. When challenged on this he makes those bland statements that he obviously believes such as calling me a climate change denier not worth wasting his breath on and then later, resorting to belittling and insulting comments such as he can see I am a mystic so was my degree in divination? Once he wound his way through those sort of comments I apparently bored him. Sad. That someone with an alternate viewpoint would bore him. I guess he has settled his mind already and is willing to sit on his high ground of egocentric thinking and pontificate and promote … nonsense. So cocksure that he is right just like the King Canute story or the one about the King and his new clothes….It’s what is wrong with the world right now – gullibility and a political mindset bent on promoting some fictional vision of a better world. A lot of younger folk seem to think like this – or rather, they don’t think but spout. Maybe I was the same when I was younger and I just forget…..

Anyway, I would always take the red pill. I want to see through the thin veil of lies and ‘this is so because it is so’ type thinking. To me its appalling that arguments such as the ‘science is proven’ (in of itself, a meaningless statement as science is never proven and cannot be proven), climate change denier, serve for true debate. Everyday, the fact that we live in a world of shadow, lies, manipulation and fantasy becomes clearer day by day. After all, singers now cannot sing (they use computer programs most of the time to autocorrect), athletes performances are enhanced by illegal drugs, Popular figures turn out to be child molesters and pedophiles living fantasy lives, we are told coffee is running out, oil is running out, global warming, alternative medicine is useless, fracking is bad, bees are dying and so much more….. and its actually ALL crap. Do the research and you will discover that these people do not know what they are talking about.

We are marketed to all of the time. Buy this, want that, like this, think that….. BBC and other journalists have become the new Priests of disinformation. Your life is being orchestrated and choreographed.

Isn’t it time to wake up and reject this?

Isn’t that just like the Matrix scene where you can take a blue or a red pill?

My contribution to taking the red pill is called How To Create Your Own Reality. It’s worth a read. It simply is a way for you to begin to orchestrate your own life. To break free and wake up. It is your choice.

The 97%

How many times have you glibly been told that 97% of scientists agree that man made CO2 is responsible for global warming and climate change? President Obama tweeted it not so long ago, Sen. Kerry used that statistic and so did the Pope. I wonder if any of the three of them realized where that statistic comes from and just how meaningless that really is?

There are two sources for the 97% and neither of them are very compelling. One was a two question survey sent to over 10,000 Earth Scientist asking two set up questions. The first asked if temperatures had risen in the last 100 years and the second asked if man had an impact on that temperature rise. Now only about 3500 surveys were completed and of them only 79 were completed by people who were ‘climate scientists’ – whatever that is. Of those 79 climate scientists, 77 answered yes to both questions – or 97%. I would have too and I am in the 97% according to the questions asked – isn’t everybody?

The other source of the statistics was a survey of peer reviewed papers by a University Professor in Australia. Again, if you actually read the paper he wrote you won’t be overly impressed. Actually only 37% of the papers suggested man made CO2 as a cause but by fudging the way papers were included or excluded, he managed to make it 97%. Statistics… damn lies and statistics.

Today, I signed a petition and I want to tell you about it.

The purpose of the Petition Project is to demonstrate that the claim of “settled science” and an overwhelming “consensus” in favor of the hypothesis of human-caused global warming and consequent climatological damage is wrong. No such consensus or settled science exists. As indicated by the petition text and signatory list, a very large number of American scientists reject this hypothesis.

Publicists at the United Nations, Mr. Al Gore, and their supporters frequently claim that only a few “skeptics” remain – skeptics who are still unconvinced about the existence of a catastrophic human-caused global warming emergency.

It is evident that 31,487 Americans with university degrees in science – including 9,029 PhDs, are not “a few.” Moreover, from the clear and strong petition statement that they have signed, it is evident that these 31,487 American scientists are not “skeptics.”

These scientists are instead convinced that the human-caused global warming hypothesis is without scientific validity and that government action on the basis of this hypothesis would unnecessarily and counterproductively damage both human prosperity and the natural environment of the Earth.

As of today, make that 31,488 Americans with science degrees and 9,030 PhDs.

Why?

Drip
A blob falls to the ground
A drop
A tear
Don’t worry; there is nothing to fear
Sip
Drinking it greedily down
A gulp
Swallow
In this sadness I will wallow

My eyes are wet
I cannot seem to forget
What the hell happened?
The lump in my throat
Reading your last note
What the hell?

Yes, What the hell?
What were you thinking?
Guess we will never know
Why you decided to go

People bury their secrets
The outside not the inside
So what was it inside of you?
Was it something you thought you knew?

Drip
A blob falls to the ground
A drop
A tear
Don’t worry; there is nothing to fear
Sip
Drinking it greedily down
A gulp
Swallow
In this sadness I will wallow
