Sierra club has abandoned the environment

“Even more infuriating is that the Sierra Club has joined in the charade by pushing for the project. Recent opinion pieces and advertisements regarding the Sierra Club’s support for Apex’s proposed industrial wind project along the shores of Lake Ontario — despite the massive environmental destruction such a large-scale industrial project will cause in a major migratory flyway — are simply disgusting. Apparently the Sierra Club is indifferent of the local citizenry’s and other groups’ overwhelming opposition to the project. Or, like the corporate rent-seekers at Apex, they just don’t care.” click here

The linear-no threshold single-hit model is no longer valid as a default assumption for risk assessment

Edward J. Calabrese. The linear No-Threshold (LNT) dose response model: A comprehensive assessment of its historical and scientific foundations. Chemico-Biological Interactions. 301 (2019) 6–25. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cbi.2018.11.020

The linear no-threshold (LNT) single-hit (SH) dose response model for cancer risk assessment is comprehensively assessed with respect to its historical foundations. This paper also examines how mistakes, ideological biases, and scientific misconduct by key scientists affected the acceptance, validity, and applications of the LNT model for cancer risk assessment. In addition, the analysis demonstrates that the LNT single-hit model was inappropriately adopted for governmental risk assessment, regulatory policy, practices, and for risk communication.

1988 Climate alarmist claims refuted by NOAA tide gauge data

“In all more than 200 coastal locations are included in these measurements with more than 100 of these coastal locations with recorded data periods in excess of 50 years in duration. None of these updated NOAA tide gauge measurement data records show coastal location sea level rise acceleration occurring anywhere on the U.S. coasts or Pacific or Atlantic island groups.” click here
