    COVID-19 News

    Yup. I think that really needs clarification. There is definitely pseudoscience going on, but what exactly they are referring to needs to be identified before it can be validated. One study found that the number of hospitalizations was about the same as you'd find at a typical NFL game. And...

    COVID-19 News

    I'm not so sure about all that. There's nothing wrong with earning a living doing what you do, regardless of whether or not you happen to be famous, and celebrities often advocate not simply for themselves, but for their fans and the disenfranchised, which now includes millions who have lost...

    COVID-19 News

    Interesting. A quick look at some of the articles about Van Morrison's views on the COVID-19 pandemic doesn't look like denial, as in he doesn't believe the SARS-CoV-2 virus is real. He ( and Clapton ) appear to be in the anti-lockdown camp ( same as me and a number of PhDs and over 50,000...

    I would love to hear your perspectives sometime ( off the record ). BTW, my Dad was the head geologist for a number of years at Pan Canadian. They didn't drill a well anywhere in North America unless it went past him first, and he showed me what the real maps look like. You know, the ones that...

    Thanks for that. Makes sense to me. Yes, I've heard that all before, and looked into it, and like I say, only about 7% has been reclaimed, and calling it a natural oil spill is dismissive of the scale of devastation that isn't natural. When only 1% of profits could clean-up everything as they...

    Interesting perspective, but I'm too far out of that loop to know what you mean. What it seems like you're saying is that TMX ( presumably an acronym for the trans mountain pipeline expansion ) through BC is a more effective strategy anyway. Being the heretic that I am, I'm fine with no...

    A Comment On The COVID Conspiracy - Which one was that again? There have been so many conspiracy theories that I've lost count. The forum here has pages and pages of them. But there have been some themes in the "scamdemic" or "plandemic" or whatever you want to call it, that stick out in my...

    Did Bill Cooper Plant the Seeds for the QAnon Conspiracy?

    I'd never even heard of Cooper ( except perhaps peripherally ) until @Decker mentioned him on a thread, which led me to an old article he ( Don ) had written. I think Don would be happier if nobody ever mention Copper's name again ( Don is very passionate about his beliefs and principles ). As...

    That's already been done, and approved. So one more time around the block. Regardless of whether or not the environmental risks will be "examined", I can pretty much guarantee that there will be insufficient environmental restoration rules in place. I live here in Alberta, and therefore it's...

    COVID-19 News

    Biden also wants to kill a major energy project between US and Canada on his first day in office. Maybe it's a good idea. Maybe it's not. As for the lockdown strategy, Sweden is presently doing a turn-around on their open-for-business approach and instituting measures. This is a very bad sign...

    Ontario Premier ignores harms of lockdown while imposing severe COVID measures "Ontario Premier Doug Ford said a lot of theatrical things on Tuesday as he further locked down the more than 14 million people in his province. But instead of focusing on what he said, let’s take a look at what he...
