Leading climate scientist: 'democratic process isn't working'
James Hansen, a climate modeller with Nasa, told the Guardian today that corporate lobbying has undermined democratic attempts to curb carbon pollution. "The democratic process doesn't quite seem to be working," he said.
Hansen is funded by George Soros’ Open Society Institute under the ‘Politicization of Science’ program. In December 2008, it was discovered that Hansen’s claim of the hottest October on record was due to false numbers being used. It was also dicovered in 2007 that Hansen had falsified records. Source.
So if it isn't working, just what are we supposed to do? Declare martial law, I suppose.
More than three-quarters of Britons want to see jobless immigrants forced to leave UK
You see these articles all the time. Most Americans or Europeans aren't in favor of all sorts of things: abortion on demand, gay marriage, unlimited immigration, the EU, etc. etc. Yet governments continue to force some or all of these things on us, knowing full well that we don't want them.
Is this "government of the people, by the people, for the people"? Is democracy really giving us what we want from government?
