No hope of understanding

I have just read some of the letters to the editor in the September/October 2017 edition of Engineering Dimensions, and I am dumbfounded by the extent to which supposedly highly educated and professional people can be taken in by a few hypocritical crackpots like Gore, Suzuki and Butts. As one of those letters quite correctly points out, they “don’t have a hope of understanding” climate change (“Erring on the side of safety”). It doesn’t take a huge leap of faith to see the whole climate change fiasco is nothing more and nothing less than a huge money grab, founded on fake science and mass marketing. This is simply the anti-nuke campaign of the last century times 10, aided and facilitated by social media. I call upon fellow members and intelligent people everywhere to put a stop to this hoax and to the misguided and destructive redistribution of wealth that it spawns.
