Fighting Chemophobia 4th Edition is now on Amazon

James Kennedy

My fourth edition of Fighting Chemophobia is now available on Amazon.com.

This edition is paperback and black-and-white throughout… hence the low price.

Chemophobia is an irrational fear of chemicals. It includes the fear of aluminium in vaccines, methylparaben preservative in cosmetics and formaldehyde residue in shampoo. Since the early 1990s, advances in toxicology have allowed scientists to detect traces of adulterant substances in everyday products – even down to parts per billion concentrations. Toxicological research has shown most of these substances are in such low doses that they pose zero threat to our health.

Nonetheless, we get scared. We overreact to harmless, negligible sources of contamination and buy “natural”, “organic” and “chemical-free” alternative products at elevated prices because we’re psychologically pre-disposed to think they’re safer. Consumers are victims of aggressive marketing and misleading labelling from “natural” and “organic” companies, who exploit our psychological quirks to expand their market share.

Power Drain: Risible Reliance on Intermittent Wind & Solar Means Summer Blackouts Beckon

STOP THESE THINGS

Now you’ve made your acquaintance, get on and start using it.

Subsidised into existence, intermittent wind and solar now pose existential threats to Australia’s once reliable power supply, this summer and beyond.

No industrialised country has ever run itself on sunshine and breezes; no country serious about maintaining first world living standards, ever will.

So just how Australia’s energy boffins still cling to the notion that wind and solar are meaningful parts of the so-called ‘energy mix’, remains a mystery.

Ross Fitzgerald attempts to unravel that mystery in a pertinent and timely article below.

Don’t Leave Us in the Dark, Mr Morrison

Just now, the Morrison government still seems secure. Its narrow but decisive win has shattered an opposition that had thought it was coasting to victory. The Labor Party is about to begin a civil war between green-left ideologues and old-fashioned pragmatists…

Civil Rights in Song (3): Sweet Home Alabama – Neil Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd, George Wallace and all that

In 1970, Neil Young released his classic album, After the Goldrush. One of its standout tracks was Southern Man.

The following year, Young recorded the follow up, Harvest. This featured the song Alabama. The South more generally, and Alabama in particular was in his sights.

In 1973, Lynyrd Skynyrd recorded their classic song in reply, Sweet Home Alabama.

Well, I hope Neil Young will remember

A Southern man don’t need him around anyhow

Over the years, it was often assumed that the band hated Young, or even that they were the voice of the white racist south. Neither ‘fact’ was true.

Skynyrd’s Ronnie Van Zant would later claim that:

We wrote Alabama as a joke…We didn’t even think about it — the words just came out that way. We just laughed like hell, and said ‘Ain’t that funny’… We love Neil Young, we love his…

Do Women have anything left that we can call our own?

Scottish Women

On 27/9/19 the Twitter accounts for Scottish Transgender Alliance and Equality Network both tweeted:

“It has been claimed that they don’t fund single-sex services – that is code for services for women that operate a blanket exclusion of trans women. But such a service would almost certainly be breaching the Equality Act

The Equality & Human Rights Commission statutory code on the Equality Act says that women’s services may only exclude trans women “on a case-by-case basis in order to determine whether the exclusion of a transsexual person is proportionate in the individual circumstances

Blanket exclusion of trans women is likely to be unlawful. You can read more details on pages 197-8 of the EHRC’s statutory code of practice on the Equality Act, here:

It’s no wonder that @scotgov does not fund unlawful activity! ”

Needless to say I do not agree with their interpretation of the law.
