Trump the Dump

https://climate.nasa.gov/evidence/ https://royalsociety.org/topics-policy/projects/climate-change-evidence-causes/ https://www.skepticalscience.com/global-warming-scientific-consensus-intermediate.htm The three above links represent just the tip of (an ever-shrinking one, if this carries on) iceberg from experts and scientists from around the world, who all agree that man-made climate change is real.

Red vs Blue – the Gap is Shrinking

Slowly but surely the spectre of the unthinkable is moving closer and closer. The Conservative Party has been forced into an embarrassing U-turn on social care policies, and they have misled us on plans for NHS and school funding. There is a slow but steady march toward privatising the NHS too – the impact of… Read more

On June 8th…

It’s Red Vs Blue – and maybe Yellow will get involved – as the UK goes to the polls for a General Election called three years sooner than planned. Oooh! So what’s the deal? Why has Theresa May done this? The most obvious answer is that it will be a lot easier to consolidate her… Read more

Both articles offer an important perspective on the divisive issue of abortion – namely, they offer a female perspective. I have pointed these articles out to those… Read more

The Fight against Democracy 

On a few occasions now, I have ventured to Blogging Theology to discuss an oft-repeated topic – democracy. Incidently, these discussions have served as the basis for this page, which is a series of articles exploring the merits of democracy vs other forms of government.
