What we need to do is diagnose and then treat.  I just provided the diagnosis.  The treatment protocol is not to kill them, or fumigate, but to deprive them of positions of so-called "leadership".

How do you propose to do that?  They'll just maintain their power by force and kill you if you try to deprive them of their power and control.

Have you ever been outdoors in a swampy area with an ungodly number of mosquitoes?  I mean a fog of mosquitoes?  Millions and millions of 'em?


JRM,
The problem, as RE pointed out, is that the top dirty dogs always game the system. But I go a step further. I claim the problem is that DOUBLETALK and LYING that undermines scientific objectivity is destroying human civilization. WHY? Because, if there is no standard for what is CORRECT and what is INCORRECT, chaos and collapse is guaranteed (eventually - it takes a while for the mountain of mendacity to blow society apart).

We have reached a stage in which it's "okay" to LIE if you make a lot of money from it BECAUSE you are preserving profits for corporations who's products are deleterious to the biosphere in general (and humans in particular). It's NOT "okay". It's NEVER going to be "okay". All these heinous tactics exposed in the following video like attacking the objective scientist messenger, giving equal time to fringe opinions of in uncredentialed "experts" (funded by industry polluters WITHOUT full disclosure of funding), distorted statistics, cherry picking "positive" aspects of a pollutant (without a shred of scientific proof), media blitzes repeating the same lie (following by a back page retraction published weeks later in only one source), ETC. MUST result in charges AND criminal prosecution EVERY TIME they publish self serving BULLSHIT that harms the public welfare.

Otherwise, THEY WILL CONTINUE TO RUIN ANY OPPOTUNITY FOR GOVERNMENT AND SOCIETY TO ACT to prevent all the crimes corporations wishing to disguise the damage their products do (e.g. GMOs, makeup, pharmaceuticals, fossil fuels, Tobacco, etc. - it's a LONG list BECAUSE it's a list of CAPITALIST "success" stories).

Agelbert NOTE: The following METER READING is sine qua non for those who champion the above mendacious strategy:
               


Stunning film exposes climate "sceptics" Merchants Of Doubt


Published on Aug 30, 2016

Merchants of Doubt is a 2014 American documentary film directed by Robert Kenner and inspired by the 2010 book of the same name by Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway.

The film traces the use of public relations tactics that were originally developed by the tobacco industry to protect their business from research indicating health risks from smoking.

The most prominent of these tactics is the cultivation of scientists and others who successfully cast doubt on the scientific results.
