This blog is one I came across a year or so ago, sometimes it is ordinary and
sometimes it is well worth reading.
This particular post struck a chord with me and I agree with it almost entirely.
I posted the the referenced du Fresne article here and the reaction to it by at
least one person is well explained by the above article.
Time for some balanced science.
I'm not sure who is advocating that Climate Change is from Unnatural
causes, but most people will probaly agree we can probably agree with
"Journalists used to be committed to uncovering the truth, no matter
how inconvenient. As a profession they were wary of spin and looked
out for propaganda, which they called out and treated with contempt.
Not any more. Many of todays journalists are banner-wavers and ardent
promoters of a massive propaganda campaign on an international scale
the like of which the world has never seen."
The book "Dirty Tricks" is now a few years ago, but recent revelations
regarding use of Facebook related data and "Cambridge Analytica"
offshoots indicate that such propaganda is still being peddled.
I agree that it is time for balanced science, and also time to reject
the implication that personal opinions, unsupported by scientific
facts, may not contribute to such a desirable balance.
