Piltdown man and global warming | Law of Markets
I’m in London and on the first day here I went to see the skull of the Piltdown Man, the notoriously faked missing link with the skull of a human but a monkey like jaw. The reason for the exhibit was that it was in 1913 that it had been discovered so, settled science as it was all the way through to the 1950s when carbon dating proved that it was a very cleverly designed artifact whose actual creator no one has ever known (except the person who did it). So I said to the guide that I looked forward to a similar exhibition in fifty years time about global warming as the greatest scientific con in history, a thought to which he took exception but was very nice about it. But it will happen. How anyone in London can worry about global warming is beyond me. Bring it on should be the idea.
Greenpeace statement on the 2013 State of the Nation Address of President Benigno Aquino III | Greenpeace Philippines
We are gravely disappointed with the President’s statement on energy. While he claims support for renewable energy, he contradicts himself by poking fun at the same. He continues to use antiquated arguments that the coal industry uses to slam renewable energy, most of which have been already debunked. His preference for coal is clear despite the overwhelming scientific evidence of its contribution to climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions.
