“It occurred to me…” Academic gowns show universities are medieval institutions being dragged kicking and screaming into the 17th century. Global Warming was just one issue The Club of Rome (TCOR) targeted in its campaign to reduce world population. In 1993 the Club’s co-founder, Alexander King with Bertrand Schneider wrote The First Global Revolution stating, […]

“It occurred to me…”Young men have so lost direction that they have their caps on backwards.   The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed and hence clamorous to be led to safety by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. H.L.Mencken The Intergovernmental Panel on […]

The Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change (IPCC) implies current climate change and its rate are beyond any previous changes. They are wrong. Worse, despite moving the goalposts from the threat of global warming to the threat of climate change they examine only warming and its negative impacts, while the world cools. As a result governments […]

Environmentalism was a new and and necessary paradigm that appeared in the 20th century. Of course we need to care for and protect the Earth. Distressingly, the idea was grabbed by a few people and used to push a political agenda. They distorted, exaggerated, misdirected and deceived the people in the guise of saving the […]

It is parroted by all […]

“It occurred to me….” The Green Planet is really Blue. Geoffrey Chaucer (c.1342 – 1400) is among the giants of English literature, recognized for his perceptive and realistic stories about human nature. Like Shakespeare, his characters and stories are recognizable and relevant at any time in history and in any society. His most famous work, […]

“It occurred to me ….” They say, incorrectly, one person cannot change the world. Unfortunately they usually change it for the worse.   Al Gore did more to bring melting Arctic ice to global attention and concern than anyone. Polar bears became victims and poster animals for destructive human production of CO2. He’s done more […]

I used to think when a politician announced an inquiry it meant arms length from politics and complete freedom of access for the inquiry participants. It’s what most people think and why a politician who calls for such an inquiry is generally lauded. I learned the truth after appointment to my first commission of inquiry […]

  A paradigm shift is a fundamental change in approach or underlying assumptions. Any new paradigm creates necessary changes, but also problems and victims. Feminism and environmentalism are two major new 20th century paradigms. Sadly the major victims of both are mothers and housewives, the two most important, but denigrated and ignored jobs in society.
