“Feeling” Based Science

Rather than do any actual fact checking, the New York Times does science based on “feelings”


Had they done any research, they would have known that sea level at the Marshall Islands has been falling for several years, and is no higher now than it was 20 years ago.

    The New York Times proved itself to be a traitorous organization with their printing of Walter Duranty’s lies about Holodomor.

    Gareth Jones who told the truth about Stalin’s starvation policy that Duranty denies was very conveniently murdered. This had very major ramifications because it influencd Roosevelt’s 1933 decision to grant official recognition to the Soviet Union and the American public’s acceptance.

    Last I read the NY Times still refused to give up Duranty’s 1932 Pulitzer Prize and After more than six months of study and deliberation, the Pulitzer Prize Board has decided it will not revoke the foreign reporting prize awarded in 1932 to Walter Duranty of The New York Times. — November 2003

    However in 2013 — Last fall, PJ Media and the New Criterion teamed up to award the first-ever Walter Duranty Prize for mendacity in journalism
    The Vogue article is breathtakingly bad. Powerline has some good comments on Kerry and Syria that flesh out the Vogue article.

    A surprising number of people seem completely unable to differentiate between feeling and thinking. They feel something strongly. They then think of reasons why their feeling must be correct. Often the best reason they can think of is “la la la la la! I can’t hear you!”

    Our technological prosperity has made survival so easy that many of these non-thinking yahoos function almost indistinguishably from humans with actual thinking ability. They have jobs, they drive cars, they shop for geegaws. They vote. God help us, they vote.

    Didn’t anyone notice that the last article was from Guam? No one could possibly know more about human caused flooding than those poor residents of Guam. They live precariously on the razor’s edge, about to tip over at any moment.

    Most of the Pacific Islands were photographed extensively in World War II, some since. The Marshall Islands are no exception.

    The Island of Delap (AKA Majuro) shown in the map above has gone thru a lot of evolution (above water). The original airfield from WWII was naturally located at the highest, longest, widest ground, at the southeast corner of the island. Today that is where the “town” of Majuro is. The current airport was relocated to the west in 1972.

    Here is a photo progression of Majuro, from the old airfield to today the town. It confirms the tide gauge data trend. With no part of the island higher than three meters above sea level, the land Majuro sits on has not changed in 70 years.

    h/t Abandoned and Little Known Airfields for this collection.

    This is BTW true and repeatable for literally hundreds of islands across the Pacific.

  5. Thanks. So reality looks a lot like Michael Crichton’s “State of Fear”
