Twelve Days, the scientists, world leaders, are going to meet in this UN sponsored event, to try and come up with a Global Climate Plan. Uh huh, and like you can put two leaders in a room, and get five different views. Unless of course you are Stephen Harper & whoever is the US President. Then you get whatever the US President says.
I don’t understand how any leader, of a relatively robust nation such as Canada, can be so willing to bend over backwards, to appease a bully like the United States? Granted, Obama isn’t anywhere as bad as Bush was, but still, you’d think we’d have some original thinking. I guess though, when you are basically bought and paid for by your Corporate Sponsors, original thinking is the last thing on your mind. Least that’s the case with Stephen Harper.
Still, the idea of Climate seems to be once more, something people are leery of. I mean is the climate changes, due to us, or is it actually a natural occurrence? Does history show these radical shifts or not? And yet, it makes sense, to be environmentally conscious, but we ignore that, because Business certainly can’t see the profit in it, so they attack it.
“I think a lot of people are skeptical about this issue in any case,” the UN’s top climate official, Yvo de Boer, told The Associated Press. “And then when they have the feeling … that scientists are manipulating information in a certain direction, then of course it causes concern in a number of people to say, ‘You see I told you so, this is not a real issue.”‘ ( source – CBC News )
In my mind, YES many scientists do indeed fudge things, or give a view that is perhaps not scientifically accurate. I think that the mix of business with science is dangerous, and that too much is slanted, in order to appease the sponsors of the research. Grants from huge corporations rarely seem to generate contrary reports that are harmful to those sponsors. So naturally one becomes skeptical.
Then there is the Puppets of these Corporations, who attack any Scientist who offers a theory that contradicts a corporate line. Such as the Oil Industry and research into the effects of carbon into the atmosphere. The Tobacco Giants who managed to muzzle the scientific community for ages, and yes, the drug companies as well. Politicians & Scientists rely too heavily on those corporate donations, and that always comes with a price tag.
Those political parties that rely on Unions are no different, and so it does make the public wonder. Is there a need for change, or not. Is the damage irreversible or not? Can we actually make an impact on preserving our climate, our earth, by recycling, by lowering emissions?
This is the result of too much interference in the Science community, by politicians, by labor unions, and by corporate sponsorship. There is a bias, and even the Media helps foster that, by its inaccurate reporting.
