Real science is never settled, and anyone who has certainty on such things is not qualified to discuss it — Lloyd Chambers. That applies to climate science, COVID-19, and Einstein’s theory of relativity. Repudiating rational debate on science is as anti-science as it gets.
Feel free to discount ZeroHedge, and its commentary on this matter.
What I want to see/hear is scientific confirmation or refutation of the specific claims in the papers! Not some dumb-ass interview with an alleged expert who might or might not be neutral. I want specific scientific confirmation or refutation of the points in the paper—not character assassination or mind reading or politicized opinions. Just the truth, please.
