More Truthiness on “Climategate”

Several posts ago, I talked about truthiness, Stephen Colbert’s word coined to express ‘truth’ that is known “from the gut” without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or facts .  The climate change deniers continue to go wild over the 13 years of hacked emails from East Anglia University, saying they are proof that global warming is a hoax.  This is blatantly untrue – glaciers continue to melt, droughts in Africa continue, and the Antarctic ice cover continues to shrink.  The science is not in question; there is an overwhelming amount of it out there. And taking a few lines out of more than a decade of personal emails doesn’t change that. Check out this “Climate Denial Crock of the Week” video, where some of this “truthiness” is exposed:


Today is “Meatless Monday” so take that into consideration when planning your meals.  If you feel you lack inspiration and recipes, check out this Meatless Monday website.  Run by a non-profit group associated with the Johns Hopkins’ Bloomberg School of Public Health, their aim is to reduce meat consumption by 15% to improve personal health and the health of the planet. So you can feel good in so many ways when you dig into your meatless enchilidas or vegetable stew tonight!
