…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
Ever wondered who believes the Anthropogenic Global Warming propaganda? I do not think that spruikers like Flannery, Koroly or Garnaut believe it, nor do the politicians, socialists, fascists and other world government admirers, nor the charlatans masquerading as scientists in the former institutions of higher learning and the least of all the captains of the finance and industry. But somebody, somewhere presumably must believe the dogma; somebody with no understanding of basic science, in other words somebody to whom the following statement is addressed:
An ancient form of natural salt, Himalayan Salt Dreams Crystal Salt is hand-mined in the foothills of the Himalayas. Ranging in colour from crystal-clear white, to dusty pinks and rich reds, the salt is free from pollutants. Sourced sustainably, the fairtrade salt is slightly milder than common salt.
No, it is not a joke, as far as I know. It may be a private joke of the merchants, who sell the salt. It did appear in one of those taxpayer subsidised throwaway publications printed on faux recycled paper for the people to whom an appearance is the substance because they can’t discern the difference.
I could dissect and demolish that statement, but so could any sixth-grader, at least in my time. The Australian of the Year 2007 is probably buying the salt. Or more likely selling it to Labor voters. No, wrong, he wouldn’t. Selling hot air is easier.
