Green scams

Post by Anaxagoras »

I see this sort of thing cropping up more and more recently and apparently the mainstream media either is not wise to it or they don't care because it's a feel-good story that can fill time between commercials for them.

Thunderfoot is doing a good job exposing these which the media falls for hook, line and sinker.

There was the "Solar freaking roadways" scam which he debunked perhaps too thoroughly and another recent one about "plastic from air" which is being touted as a solution for global warming to the innumerate.

What was not a surprise to me is that this is a scam. What did bother me is to see just how uncritically the TV shows covered this.

Facts do not speak for themselves. Somebody needs to speak for them and expose these frauds. I think he's doing gods work here.

A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.
