Aristocratic cowardice, betrayal and opportunism

Photo by author. 2013.

Since I took the photo above and below almost 10 years ago as part of my preparation for writing my faction novel, I’ve learned a lot more about the topics mentioned in the title.At that time I had not yet heard of the horrible organized betrayal and global lust for power of the World Economic… Continue reading Aristocratic cowardice, betrayal and opportunism

Dutch viceroy Donner speeches – senility or scribism?

Jan Hein Donner in 2012 receives a first copy of a book on Christian dogmatics.

A new translation of an older and longer Dutch text. The reason for this article was the annual report 2016 [Dutch original text is from 2017] of the ‘Council of State’ and more specifically the ‘reflection’ in it by that time ‘vice-chair’ Donner [1] of that important judicial organisation in the Netherlands. He gave his… Continue reading Dutch viceroy Donner speeches – senility or scribism?

J. Cook on repeat: ‘consensus’ and the scientists

Take note: 2 minutes further in the interview he repeats this statement!

The reason for this article is twofold: a remarkable article on a strange Dutch website and an atypical reaction under an earlier article of mine about ‘climate denier’ as badge of honor. I’ll start with the more important of the two: an article written by one Kim de Roder. Actually, not Roder’s discussion contribution itself,… Continue reading J.

However, I had not yet formulated the title of this piece as a conclusion. Among other things, I went through… Continue reading ‘Climate denier’ as a badge of honor

It did not explicitly address the question from the title of this article. Is climate science a real existing branch of (serious) scientific practice?That I… Continue reading What IS climate science?

The suffering of the climate prophet. And lead outweighs CO2

Stephen Schneider

When considering running for a seat in the Provincial Council I started reading the complete IPCC report, however, I got stuck on page XI. The Synthesis Report 2014 turned out to be officially dedicated to Mr. Stephen Schneider, who -for that reason- can be called climate prophet. I use that term climate prophet for the… Continue reading The suffering of the climate prophet. And lead outweighs CO2

Looking at a beheading or a totally mutilated vagina

Hanny Lightfoot-Klein: the most beautiful woman in the world?

There are pieces on both topics from the title of this text in my book Islamophobiaⁱ, which do not differ much in size, but about female genital mutilation (FGM) I actually wrote calmer than about the  beheadings. After I had seen a video clip of the truly Furious Ann Barnhardt (with three capital  letters), famous… Continue reading Looking at a beheading or a totally mutilated vagina
