This Sunday on Facebook: Some years ago my youngest son gave me ‘Mort’ by Terry Pratchett, I don’t think that he gave it to me to start a conversation, I’m sure he just thought I would like it. It turned out to be one of those books that I ‘skimmed’ through, being (for my part) a time when my immortality was assumed. The book by Terry Pratchett was quite amusing in parts but not being a ‘Discworld‘ fan, as the reviewer above clearly is, I didn’t enjoy the read that much.

This week on Facebook: I think that action on climate change (which I have been writing about) is a euphemism that enables people to write about the effects of Mathusianism, particularly when comparing economic growth and climate change. Not only is Malthusianism influencing world populations, it is increasingingly being used as a political weapon.

However, perhaps a former president of Greenpeace¹ provides some explanation to this dichotomy. Read more of this post

Next week on Facebook I try to present the challenges to climate change, something that has turned out very difficult to do with a claimed 97% of the scientific community reporting it as an Anthropocene event. For my part I can see no end to whatever is inducing any perceived climate change. Read more of this post

This week on Facebook: Many years ago I remember reading about a group of scientists (or perhaps not yet scientists), who affirmed the (known to them) expected results of a scientific experiment. The information (affirmation) was a false lead and the experiment was meant to find out how much scientists are biased by ‘expected results’. That scientists can be biased was a revelation to me (at the time), perhaps contributing towards my innate cynicism regarding scientific results¹.
