Might these 'scientists' have received a bung from the increasingly powerful comms corporations?

Taking a page from the warmists and hedging their bets, so that whatever happens they were right?

After nearly 50 years the cunts can't make their minds up if 'the pill' is good or bad for women's health.
Climate science must be a doddle in comparison, because they have all the fucking answers.

'On the one hand ...... however, on the other hand......'
Think you could have a very good point Fausty - you can't trust any of these bastards further than you can throw them.
In the pursuit of social cohesion (NOT), this may give you a laugh. Not sure what the point of it was, however, the words are funny - and oh so true:

doublethink: "The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them....To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies..."

No surprise that Orwell worked at the BBC.

Fausty, you are right... I bet they commissioned the research because oldies don't make enough calls.

My wife and I are on the same account and our total phone bill is around £4.50 a month.

I saw this headline and said to myself 'what fucking experts'?

Make your fucking minds up! IS it getting hotter or colder?

Last year mobile phones were going to give us all head cancer!

BOLLOCKS!

--------------------------------The bitter winter afflicting much of the Northern Hemisphere is only the start of a global trend towards cooler weather that is likely to last for 20 or 30 years, say some of the world’s most eminent climate scientists.

WTF happened to all the snow that the met office forecast yesterday ?
They can't forecast a mild or cold winter, a bbq summer or a washout or whether tomorrow will snow or rain ?
But the fuckers can say that by spending $100Bn on reducing CO2 then they can reduce the earths temperature by 2 degrees centigrade by 2050. How the fuck does that work ?

The BBC is the new Daily Mail.

It's all bollocks of course, mobile phone radiation doesn't cause or prevent any diseases at all because it's not that sort of radiation.

DZ said...

It seems to be feature of modern life that PR wallahs and journos can get away with comment on scientific matters that they don't themselves understand.

So they rattle on earning their money and then the blogs are full of 'believers' and 'non-believers'. What the hell has belief got to to do with the scientific method? Nothing.

Reminds me of the early panic about mobiles frying the brain. My company did a full 3D voxel model of two merged 3D scans of a live body (CT and MR) for a nameless government research institute to play ray-tracing. What did they discover? That the radiation from the phone was focussed by the skull down the funnel containing the optic nerve and was more likely to fry the lens of the eye rather that your brain. Did you hear about that? Thought not.

Seen anybody in the opticians lately?

bofl said...

the bbc is shite.......

but what short memories you all have......during blairs years he complained that the beeb wasnt on his side..so they were forced by blair to get rid of anyone that didnt want to suck his gay cock!

as for the snow-the forecast has been totally wrong in the se essex area........1inch yesterday-today most has melted.just a few flakes...but the forecast was 16 inches!!!!!!

ffs.....just what is the point ?

I put it all down to a man in a cave somewhere in the Afghan/Paki border.

AP said...

A scientist says "Both statements are perfectly compatible, as indeed global warming is entirely consistent with cooling temperatures for the last eight years and the recent weather. Mobiles may trigger Alzheimer's, but mobile induced cancer will kill you first hence protecting you from Alzheimer's by dying before you get old. Ergo both statements are true"

Except that they are probably both bollocks

I think my 82 yr old Mum's mobile has given her Altzheimer's ..

Rogerborg said...

As I bask in the balmy heights of +4 C, I wonder how the same Scienticians that predicted yesterday that it would be -20 C today can have any credibility in making predictions fifty or a hundred years away.

Same difference ?

DZ said...

So our allies in the US don't want to tell us how they avoid being blown up by IEDs. I wonder why?

Let me think ...... oh yes. Diversity and wossname. Got it.

caesars wife said...

mmm nothing to do with people who own mobile phones eating a good diet and being in middle social incomes then !

From Argyll to Armagh, endangered languages.

My current batty bwoy asked about the status of the Irish language. I told him in between some arse pumping, Brendan Behan said that if you wanted Irish people to learn Gaelic God should have given them brains. Gaelic was compulsory at school yet my cousin didn't even know what C.I.E was Coras Iompair Eireann=Irish Travel Company, like British Rail in England. Only crappier...
I learned some from a gay pal (now dead) from AID's who did 10 years as a political prisoner at Portlaoise. (PIRA membership). He was a language fanatic. To illustrate from my Fathers family his Mother was a mongol and English speaker, her parents were bi-sexual and brother and sister, initially just Irish Gaelic speakers but had to learn English. "If you want to get some head get some sweets" My real father Monkey Adams used to say.
Today Irish speaking regions are shrinking in terms of viability. One of the points in the Pink Book or (POOFTERS MANUAL) was "Learn to Swallow. Don't say you are too busy, nobody is that busy. Get that Pearl Jam down yout throat. If you don't learn it do not mock those who do". The Irish issue is a joke in Northern Ireland (surprise, surprise), on the Falls Road whilst hawking my recently I heard Polish accents but they spoke Polish, there are schools in the Irish medium and shops that just serve you if you say please. (they will switch to English for tourists). What is the future of Irish or any minority language in Europe? What of Scots? Lazy poncing bastards. Is it all a matter of money, the answer being that higher taxes English will ensure Irish language survival in a digital, Hard Rock Cafe Pink world? I am now confused having drunk three whole bottles of 'Arse Opener' The room is spinning and I really wanted a wank tonight, but try as I might it will not get stiff and looks like a minature Walnut Whip. I will try and think again of Will Young or Graham Norton......Oooh matron. Free Tibet, Increase Incapacity benefit and housing benefit. Why can't I get that dream job at the Pink Poodle Club?
