And Then The End’s Upon Us….

I’m sure that if you’ve listened or watched the BBC today you’ll have noticed their hyperventilating, unrelenting, not so much, ‘in your face’, as ‘in your face and right down your throat’  reporting that the UN have concluded that anything we do now to combat global warming will be too little too late as it’s all horribly irreversible and unstoppable. Doom is all we have to look forward to so please adopt a windmill. However, it may not be all bad but the BBC managed to loose that inconvenient bit in the noise.

I have one, and only one question. Why, with anything of a gloomy and doomy nature, be it climate, smoking, alcohol, fat, fizz, sugar, custard’ll kill y’all or whatever, the MSM will only countenance the fanatical shrieking of the rabid voices from those inside the asylum walls?

The calm, collected, measured voices of reason, from our side of the asylum walls, to counter this hysteria, seem ever absent from all ‘official’ news outlets and is only available to those wot knows how to walk the Web.

How many folk, after listening to the BBC news, will make it their business to check the facts as reported? Thousands? Hundreds of thousands? That’s cool, but sadly leaves many, many millions quite happy to accept, as gospel, anything the mainstream hooks, crooks and comic singers tell ‘em.  And that’s scary.

Quote;  G. K. Chesterton.

“Fairy tales do not give the child his first idea of bogey. What fairy tales give the child is his first clear idea of the possible defeat of bogey. The baby has known the dragon intimately ever since he had an imagination. What the fairy tale provides for him is a St. George to kill the dragon.”

I don't think folk really believe all the doom-mongering. It's just something to watch on TV.

You may well be right. The Daily Mash would seem to agree with you. “If scientists want us to be scared of climate change they are going to have to try a lot harder, it has been confirmed.”

By the way, did you spot this from early March? http://cphpost.dk/news/energy-minister-ready-to-scrap-offshore-wind-farms.8763.html
