After reading the book Climate Coverup by James Hogan where he exposes a long-term plan by corporate interests to sway public opinion and cast doubt on legitimate science concerning human impact on climate change and what we can do about it I find a clear example right here in Prince Rupert.
I take exception to The Northern View printing material from such a blatant example of yellow journalism as Tom Fletcher in his Separating science from superstition article in the Oct. 2 edition. I trust the usually clear heads on the north coast won’t be duped by his disillusioned nonsense.
We live in this wonderful technological miracle of a civilization brought about by dedicated scientists who have escaped the fantasies of superstition. And he accuses them of that?
The vast majority of legitimate scientists in the field of climate change have declared it to be a fact and that one humanity can do something about. It is not a matter for debate or opinion by those of us who make their contribution to society in other areas.
One wonders at the motives of someone who blatantly seeks to influence the public by muddying the waters of a life-threatening issue.
Either he is totally consumed by his own inflated ego and delirious sense of the power of his pen or he has succumbed to those who place economics before life, or more accurately, choose short-term thrills for long-range pain. Why else would he choose to be part of the problem instead of part of the solution? Talk about irrational behaviour or in its old term, superstition.
These corporate monsters and their cronies are nothing short of guilty of crimes against humanity and the planet. Like I said above, they choose short-term economic thrills over long term genocide. I’m hearing that the relevant scientists and the more clear headed politicians are getting a game plan together at the United Nations to get around these mindless obstacles as water gets around rocks to get to the sea.
If it’s not too late.
