A friend posted this on Facebook today – and I felt almost compelled to share it.

The messaging is important. It provides some contrast to what is often taken to be objective truth in the Mass Media. He makes some very interesting points here:

  • MSG is not unhealthy
  • Nuclear Power is the safest method of energy production there is
  • Fracking is not as bad as the media/NGOs would have us believe
  • Gas is efficient
  • NGOs market just as much as Industries

Ivo Vegter is a columnist and author of Extreme Environment, in which he warns about environmental exaggeration and how it harms emerging economies. Taking excessive risks may be dangerous, but so is excessive risk avoidance. Using several startling or amusing examples, he’ll make a strong case for why facts and reason must trump emotion and exaggeration.”
