The media loves action and controversy because it gives them stuff to report and talk about. More viewership and readership means more money. The media will always take the side of a story that is more profitable even though they may know that it is not the correct side to take in terms of what is right and what is wrong. If you understand this, you will always understand why they report stories the way they do.
The Ukraine story is a prime example of this modus operandi. Had the media reported that Viktor Yanukovitch is the democratically elected leader of Ukraine (which he was) and a mob of dissatisfied people are trying to subvert the democratic process by kicking him out of office prematurely because of one decision he made that they did not agree with, we would not have been in the situation we are in today. Had the media reported that the usual process in a democracy is to demonstrate and show your disapproval but wait for election time to oust a leader, like we would normally do in the USA and other Western countries, the mob in Ukraine would not have been embolden and America would not have been put in the impossible situation of having to respond to Russia and Vladimir Putin. Had the media reported the situation Continue reading…

What percentage, or what proportion, of the air around us is carbon dioxide? Is it
A) More than 50 percent
B) More than 25 percent
C) More than 10 percent, or
D) Less than 1 percent
So, what do you think? How much carbon dioxide is in the atmosphere relative to other gases?
The answer is less than 1 percent. ……….. Did you know that? How many people do you think know that? The answer is significant, very significant, because climate change proponents claim that carbon dioxide is having a massive effect in the atmosphere? But how can something that is present in such tiny quantities in the atmosphere create such havoc. And actually, carbon dioxide is much much less than 1 percent of the gases in the atmosphere. It is actually 0.039 percent. So it is not even a half of a percent. In fact it is not even a tenth of a percent. It is about one twenty-fifth of a percent. If you look at it on a pie chart, carbon dioxide does not even show up. That’s how small a percentage it is. It exists in such small amounts that it is referred to in science as a trace gas. The dominant gases in the atmosphere are nitrogen (about 78%), and oxygen (about 20 percent).
If we were to represent carbon dioxide with dots, for every 2,500 dots of air, one dot would be carbon dioxide. This is how rare carbon dioxide is in the atmosphere. And I started out with this point because I think it is the strongest evidence against global warming for the following reason: Continue reading…
