I am and have long been an unabashed advocate of carbon taxes and gas taxes, but... I have a concern that not enough attention is being paid to the innovation function for clean energy. Right now clean energy prices are marching steadily downward in the form of declining solar costs, my [...]

+Kevin Folta is on offense, after facing an industry-funded harassment #FOIA request. And he's winning. But he's asking for more help. If you are in a position to write about his situation, or post things to your evidence-based circles, he could use support.

Not only for him, but for some of the ones who have already been silenced by political activists. There are apparently 14 folks who have been served, and some are not allowed to speak out.

Stand with the #Science14 . And watch for more press soon, too. Apparently he's been talking with a lot of media outlets.
When US-RTK filed the public records request on the #science14, they didn't realize they were creating a turning point in public perception. The public is sick and tired of those that waste limited public funds to abuse i...

This nonsense is getting people sick. Hopefully there will be a silver lining and the antivax crap will die off
A new study this week finds strong evidence that people who rejected vaccines for their young children are clustered together in the same communities.

+Daniel Smith 67 isn't arbitrary. If you live to 67 your chances of living longer actually increase.

Cancer, like most diseases are an immune failure caused by genetic mutation and nutritional deficits. That's why everyone who smokes don't get lung cancer and some people who have never smoked do get it. Smoking accelerates/aggravates lung cancer, but isn't the cause.

Vaccinations have successful ridded humanity of scourges like small pox and offers a treatment to prevent rabies when bitten. But as TB proved, not all vaccination/innoculations wore to prevent disease.

Some diseases are purely nutritional in nature, like pellagra, rickets, and scurvy.

All of the affects of vaccinations are not know. Nothing of a medical nature is riskless, and little has ever been done to insure the safety and efficacy of vaccinations. Humans are the experiment when it comes to vaccinations.

Again I ask, why doesn't the FDA release the statistics of how many unvaccinated children have autism. It would put the issue to rest permanently.

“Conspiracy beliefs feed into a core feature of political extremism, namely a desire to make sense of societal events through a set of clear-cut assumptions about the world.”

Wingnuts “adhere to their belief system in a rigid fashion, leading them to perceive their political ideas as the simple and only solution to societal problems. Conspiracy beliefs feed into a core feature of political extremism, namely a desire to make sense of societal events through a set of clear-cut assumptions about the world.” This in turn “induces them to perceive evil conspiracies as causal explanations for various events.”

Abstract:
"Historical records suggest that the political extremes—at both the 'left' and the 'right'—substantially endorsed conspiracy beliefs about other-minded groups. The present contribution empirically tests whether extreme political ideologies, at either side of the political spectrum, are positively associated with an increased tendency to believe in conspiracy theories. Four studies conducted in the United States and the Netherlands revealed a quadratic relationship between strength of political ideology and conspiracy beliefs about various political issues. Moreover, participants’ belief in simple political solutions to societal problems mediated conspiracy beliefs among both left- and right-wing extremists. Finally, the effects described here were not attributable to general attitude extremity. Our conclusion is that political extremism and conspiracy beliefs are strongly associated due to a highly structured thinking style that is aimed at making sense of societal events."
New research finds those on the political extremes are more susceptible than moderates.

"Maybe I choose to bring back the mumps. Or maybe it’s diphtheria. Or maybe it’s some other potentially fatal disease that can easily pass among those too young or too medically unfit to be vaccinated themselves. But whichever highly communicable and formerly wiped-out disease that I opt to resurrect with a vengeance, it is a highly personal decision that only I and my family have the liberty to make."

Comments disabled because it's Saturday night and I don't intend to spend it moderating nonsense.

I'm not against vaccinations. I stopped getting flu vaccine in 1976, and that was the last year I got the flu. I stopped getting most vaccines after I got out of the Marines in 1970, and that was when my annual bouts of a variety of illnesses came to an end. Since 1976, I have had one tetanus booster for an industrial accident in 1992.

The person who started the measles epidemic in California had the full complement of measles vaccine. A substantial number of people who are getting the measles have had the correct complement of measles vaccines.

I had measles when I was a child in the 1950s. This gave me a lifetime immunity. I received six measles vaccines in the four years (and all the other available vaccines at the time) I was in the military.

I've had chicken pox, too. So, if I listen to the vaccine manufacturers it's only a matter of time before I get shingles if I don't get there vaccine. I'm not going to get the vaccine. Barbara Walters thought she couldn't get shingles because she never had chicken pox. She got exposed to a child with chicken pox and came down with shingles.

If I am bitten by a rabid animal, yes, I'm getting the rabies vaccine. If I am going to travel outside the country, I would get the required vaccines for where I am going. So, I am not against vaccines.

Le sigh.
"Of the 34 patients in the current measles outbreak whose vaccination status is known, only five were fully vaccinated, according to the Los Angeles Times. And the worst of the outbreak is centered in Orange County, ground zero for the anti-vaccination movement that's put children at risk over junk science."
A new study this week finds strong evidence that people who rejected vaccines for their young children are clustered together in the same communities.

Also, a huge asshole.

I don't suppose these people understand that most multicellular life forms can get cancer? No, I'm sure they don't.

+Daniel Smith It's a fact that I think you're an asshole. 

I'm still waiting for your ingenious debate to my original statement.
