So that’s just three out of the hundreds of environmental scare stories which appear across the world’s media every week – every one of them utter bollocks in almost every detail. And people believe them: of course they do! The mainstream media may be ailing but they are by no means dead. For a significant chunk of the population, they are still the trusted, go-to source for information: after all, you wouldn’t want to be one of those crazies who gets their information from all those partisan news sites and blogs on the internet, would you?
This is a major problem.
It cannot be said often enough that virtually the entire environment industry is a fraud.
All those stories you read about anything from climate change to species extinction to threatened reefs, glaciers and atolls – they may sound superficially plausible because they are delivered with passion and urgency and “expert” testimony in apparently respectable media outlets. But they are like elaborate edifices which look magnificent from a distance only to be revealed, on closer examination, to be crumbling facades riddled with woodworm and dry rot, botched with poor materials and third-rate workmanship.
And rather than allow these cathedrals of lies to collapse – as they should have done long ago – the environmental alarmists have propped them up with a succession of jacks and anchors and wedges and flying buttresses.
Worse, I see few indications that this is about to change because the penalties for lying are non-existent.
