Nuclear Weapons: History, Science and the Public: TV program and more information

March 15, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

The April 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series helps you understand how nuclear weapons came into existence – and the science behind them – and the public’s reactions to learning about the hard realities. From ancient times, people have wondered how the natural world works.  People have also wondered how they could use the power of the natural world to kill their enemies.  Modern science and engineering allowed people to increase their knowledge – and increase their ability to kill. Since the 1940s nuclear weapons have been part of our reality.  Most people try to avoid thinking about […]

COVID-19’s origin: New evidence points to lab experiments instead of the official explanation

March 8, 2021 GlenAnderson 0

Ever since the COVID-19 crisis occurred, I have been reading information about its origin.  The official story claimed it arose in an animal-to-human transmission at a meat market or from bats.  More recent scientific evidence has been debunking the official story and explaining how it arose from a scientific lab that was doing risky experiments and lacked adequate safety.  Here are some articles:   #1: This informative article was published in Politico, a mainstream political periodical.  It reports that in 2018, American diplomats warned of risky Coronavirus experiments in a Wuhan Lab, but the Trump regime failed to listen. https://www.politico.com/news/magazine/2021/03/08/josh-rogin-chaos-under-heaven-wuhan-lab-book-excerpt-474322 […]

Reject baloney. Base public policy on honest science.

December 21, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

Even before Trump waged his war against honest science, “special interests” and their “think tanks” and conservative media were promoting baloney that allowed businesses to corrupt governmental agencies (all the way from the federal level to the local level).  They have been hurting environment, public health, and truth itself. Trump made this worse, as we know, but big business had been abusing federal, state and local agencies for a very long time, including Washington State’s agencies that deal with the environment. This is part of a very long-standing tradition in American culture — a tradition of “anti-intellectualism” that historian Richard […]

“Nuclear Winter” is a serious and deadly threat after nuclear weapons are used.

December 15, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

The public is only scarcely aware of nuclear weapons.  Many people stopped paying attention 30 years ago when the Cold War ended.  Even then — and much more so now — the public had been propagandized so effectively by the U.S. government and mainstream media that they were very poorly informed about the danger that could kill all of us if an international conflict escalated — or if a mentally unstable president got angry at another nation — or if a computer problem or inaccurate data analysis or some other glitch caused nuclear weapons to be launched unwittingly. On the […]

Powerfully informative resources prove Trump’s horrible corruption, incompetence, etc.

December 15, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

We keep seeing various articles documenting various ways in which Trump is cruel, corrupt, incompetent, etc.  Recently two reputable national magazines focused entire issues on compiling such articles.  They are powerful resources.  I recommend them highly.   The July-August 2020 issue of Mother Jones focused especially on Trump’s extreme mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic.  The front cover says:  “PLAGUED:  Grift, Greed, Gaslighting:  A Special Report on Trump’s COVID Corruption.”  Read it here:  https://www.motherjones.com/mag/2020/07/toc/   The October-November 2020 issue of The Progressive contains many articles on a wide variety of Trump’s terrible public policies and other actions.  It documents his cruelty, corruption, and […]

Youth-led climate case in the European Court of Human Rights makes important progress!

December 9, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

The short news article I linked below begins with this paragraph: What has been described as possibly “the most important case ever tried by the European Court of Human Rights” cleared a significant hurdle Monday when the international body ordered more than 30 European governments to respond to a historic youth-led lawsuit seeking to force political leaders to take ambitious action against the existential climate emergency.   Later paragraphs say: Citing the “importance and urgency of the issues raised,” the European Court of Human Rights granted the youth-led case priority status, a move the plaintiffs and their supporters celebrated as […]

Trump’s contempt for truth and his war against science are serious problems.

December 9, 2020 GlenAnderson 0

In mid-August 2018, Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said on public TV, “truth isn’t truth.” Fact-checkers have identified more than 20,000 lies and serious misrepresentations that Trump has told during his presidential campaign and 4-year term. On several occasions Trump publicly denied having said things that he had said in public — on video — in front of witnesses and the general public. Trump has wiped scientific facts off from federal government websites in order to protect his lies about the climate and other matters from being contradicted by published scientific information. He has silenced — and fired — people who […]

Here are more things Biden should do promptly after taking office

Two days ago I posted a list of some things that a variety of good organizations and smart individuals are urging Biden to do as soon as he takes office.  Here is that blog post:  http://parallaxperspectives.org/good-organizations-urge-biden-to-take-these-good-actions-promptly   More organizations are urging additional actions, so I am listing some of them here:   Americans United for the Separation of Church and State (www.au.org) wrote: The Biden-Harris administration has the opportunity and the moral obligation to right the wrongs of the Trump administration and build a better future – one that values religious freedom and equality for all.  That’s why AU has announced a […]
