Denial of science is wider than you think

Dear Editor:

Again we see reports of denial of health science at an American inspired church in Mt Roskill.  Remember Brownlee’s recent conspiracy theory type accusations against the motivations of the government’s approach to Covid-19?

Denial is more main stream than it may seem, the most important one being the denial of the massive changes required to combat climate change.

The denial is worse in the USA with accusations of the so-called “deep state” (what does that even mean?), where historical racism is denied as well as climate change and Covid.  Also, with the 9/11/01 anniversary upon us it is appropriate to note the science of high rise building collapse is still denied in the NIST ‘official’ explanation of how the World Trade Center Building #7 came down, as debunked in a recent study from The University of Alaska.

NZ Defence Industry Association happy weapons stocks going $up after French war talk?

The Editor,  The Dominion Post,  Wellington

19 November, 2015

Dear Editor:

It seems an ironic coincidence that the NZ Defence Industry Association annual conference is occurring just as weapons stock market prices are rapidly rising (as reported by Glen Greenwald on Tuesday) after the French chose their desperate and suicidal ‘war’ response to the attacks in Paris.  Those who claim that the conference is about legitimate business opportunities should be happy, then.  Read the rest of this entry »
