Generic Drug Hazards: Told ya so!

No medicine, inadequate medicinal bioactivity, poisonous contaminants, you name it. China has wrecked havoc on our nation’s pharmaceutical supplies, and consumers have essentially no protection, and no recourse. “China doesn’t have anything like the consumer protection laws and product liability laws like the United States does,” said Rosemary Gibson, a health care expert at the Read More …

New Finnish & Japanese Study Finds No Evidence For Man-Made Climate Change

The study found that, “During the last hundred years the temperature is increased about 0.1°C because of carbon dioxide. The human contribution was about 0.01°C.” Kauppinen and Malmi conclude that global temperatures are controlled primarily by cloud cover and that “only a small part” of the increased carbon dioxide concentration is anthropogenic. KAUPPINEN, J and Read More …

Agricultural Applications of Nanotechnology

Giraldo et al (2019) have examined the potential use of nanotechnology in plants to improve crop yields and increase the stability and resilience of the world’s food supply. The underlying concept involves the application of embedded or “wearable” smart plant sensors that could provide feedback on environmental changes and pathogen-related stresses in real time. This Read More …

Electric vehicles emit more CO2 than diesel

Well color me shocked (OK, not really)! A new German study shows what should have been common sense – that the power plants that supply energy for recharging electric vehicles, means that electric cars are NOT “green”. Moreover, the emissions generated in the manufacturing process for EV batteries must be added to our CO2 output, Read More …

Thoughts on Science and God

Can a belief in God be reconciled with scientific thought? Richard Feynman (the great explainer) thought so – by acknowledging the power of uncertainty. Uncertainty and skepticism are cornerstones of good scientific practice, regardless of your metaphysical leanings. When one abandons skepticism and doubt, one devolves into a “tyranny of ideas”, and that’s not good Read More …

Fecal Bacteria and McDonald’s Touchscreens

British researchers swabbed every customer kiosk touchscreen at eight (8) McDonald’s restaurants in the London metropolitan area, and found evidence of human gut-related bacteria on every single one – nasty, but not terribly surprising. When hundreds or even thousands of people touch a screen, some are bound to have bacteria on their hands, and that Read More …

The Mini Ice Age: “Oh my God, we’re all gonna die!!”

Low sun spot activity – it’s all the rage today in the hysterical global news media.  Lots of terms are being tossed about like “Mini Ice Age”; it’s going to get “very very cold”, and of course every idiot’s favorite: “Climate Change!”.  The quasi historical reference used to surmise that global temperatures will get frosty Read More …
