During the 1930s, there were many apologists for Joseph Stalin’s brutalities, which he committed in the name of building a workers’ paradise fit for an improved humanity. The apologists complacently said, “You can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs.” To which George Orwell acidly replied: “Where’s the omelet?”
Having just gone through some bullshit of "Everything you wrote about Castro is false! He raised literacy!" etc., I think they only omelet they care about is "He was a socialist!", and all the death and ruined lives and so forth doesn't count.
Antarctic sea ice had barely changed from where it was 100 years ago, scientists have discovered, after poring over the logbooks of great polar explorers such as Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton.
Experts were concerned that ice at the South Pole had declined significantly since the 1950s, which they feared was driven by man-made climate change.
But new analysis suggests that conditions are now virtually identical to when the Terra Nova and Endurance sailed to the continent in the early 1900s, indicating that declines are part of a natural cycle and not the result of global warming.
But globular warmening is still a big threat we must act on, etc.
But I thought the science was settled!
“The idea that the speed of light could be variable was radical when
first proposed, but with a numerical prediction, it becomes something
physicists can actually test. If true, it would mean that the laws of nature were not always the same as they are today.”
Why, it's almost like the 'laws of nature' aren't, and there are things we just don't know yet...
