New Paper Claims Your Living Room Causes Diabetes

Posted by on Nov 10, 2020 in Chemistry | Comments Off on New Paper Claims Your Living Room Causes Diabetes

In the modern world of chemistry, where we can detect parts per billion, trillion, and even quadrillion, we can detect anything we want in anything else. In the modern world of epidemiology, we can also link anything to anything we want, as Harvard School of Public Health does often with its claims that some food or trace chemical is either curing or causing cancer when grant application season rolls around.

Swiss Fatalism Is So Endemic They’re Not Feeling Worse About The World During The Pandemic

Posted by on Oct 28, 2020 in Psychology | Comments Off on Swiss Fatalism Is So Endemic They’re Not Feeling Worse About The World During The Pandemic

The Swiss are famously negative about everything. The anti-science attack site Swiss Public Eye, for example, routinely undermines the science community and claim the world is doomed unless people switch to products made by their funding sources.

It's a pretty bleak existence but they've bee surrounded by militant Germany, France, and Italy for much of their history. They have forts built into nearly every mountain, compulsory military service and almost as many guns as America. They have been expecting to be overrun for centuries.

Fact-Checking Joe Biden Science Claims On Energy

Posted by on Oct 23, 2020 in Energy | Comments Off on Fact-Checking Joe Biden Science Claims On Energy

During last night's Presidential debate, former Obama administration Vice-President and Delaware Senator Joe Biden said something that had Democrats worried and even the most partisan fact checkers holding up an index finger: "I have never said I oppose fracking."

Democrats absolutely do oppose natural gas, along with nuclear and even hydroelectric power, so they may have been shocked by his statement. They can rest east. Not only does Biden oppose fracking, despite its benefit to the environment, he believes in lots of other anti-science things that cater to the populism of his base.

Organic Farming Is Not Compatible With Conservation

Posted by on Oct 21, 2020 in Environment | Comments Off on Organic Farming Is Not Compatible With Conservation

A recent paper finds that if just 15 percent of farmland reverted to nature, it would wipe out nearly a third of the carbon we've generated since the onset of the Industrial Revolution.

The good news; we can do that easily. The bad news; it involves science, and western elites in environmental activism, from Environmental Working Group in the U.S. To Swiss Public Eye in Europe, are never going to allow that without a fight.

Mask Significantly Reduce Spread Of COVID-19 – Are Laws Needed?

Posted by on Oct 8, 2020 in Immunology | Comments Off on Mask Significantly Reduce Spread Of COVID-19 – Are Laws Needed?

A study using Ontario's 34 Public Health Units over the course of two months found that wearing a mask can have a significant impact on the spread of COVID-19.

No argument there, anyone would be worried if their surgeon showed up in the operating room without a mask on, but the economists go a little further and claim mask mandates are the reason. They statistically associate mandates with a 25 percent reduction in COVID-19 cases.

Eating Less Meat Won’t Help Protect The Environment, Eating Less Will

Posted by on Oct 7, 2020 in Environment | Comments Off on Eating Less Meat Won’t Help Protect The Environment, Eating Less Will

A new paper seeks to take some of the guesswork out of subjective "sustainable" diets. Activists like True Health Initiative try to claim that a meatless diet is better for human health and the environment, for example, but their corporate sponsorships lead to skepticism. Claims about the emissions impact of meat production are often exaggerated by 700 percent. Environmentalists have never visited a farm if they think all grazing land could be growing tomatoes.

Conspiracy Theories Hinder Progress On COVID-19

Posted by on Sep 23, 2020 in Psychology | Comments Off on Conspiracy Theories Hinder Progress On COVID-19

Do you believe that COVID-19 was created by Bill Gates so he and his Big Pharma pals could get rich selling a cure? Do you believe career government employees are exaggerating COVID-19 to sway the election to their side?
