Australian news, and some related international items

Lies about ethical investments, lies about Climate Change

Today’s news –  articles about “ethical investments”.  That turns out be an issue for “Secrets and Lies”.  Some companies are described as ethical because they claim not to invest in uranium.  But – read the fine print, where it sometimes goes on to say “where uranium is directly intended for nuclear weapons fuel”.  Now that’s a nice copout, isn’t it?

Another issue for “Secrets and Lies” – the enormously successful push by fossil fuel companies to set up the incorrect story that scientific opinion is “equally” divided on Global Warming and Climate Change.

One silly part of this is that climate scientists are accused of having a secret agenda to promote “socialism”.

Strange – because the nuclear and fossil fuel lobbies also want governments to cover the costs of nuclear power setup, security, and waste disposal – apparently nuclear socialism is OK!
