Media: ‘It Is Not at All Typical to Stifle Basic Scientific Information’

13 February 2017 — FAIR

Janine Jackson interviewed Andrew Rosenberg about the Trump administration’s hostility toward science for the February 3, 2017, episode of CounterSpin. This is a lightly edited transcript.

Andrew Rosenberg: “If you tell technical experts…you have to only give us information that we like, then you’re not getting technical advice. You’re telling them not to do their jobs.”

Self-organizing robot builders – and all thanks to ingenious termite logic

15 February 2014 — RT

The possibilities are vast. The machines can be made to build any three-dimensional structure on their own and with minimal instruction. But what is truly staggering is their ability to adapt to their work environment and to each other; to calculate losses, reorganize efforts and make adjustments. It is already clear that the development will do wonders for humanity in space, hard-to-reach places and other difficult situations. Continue reading this...

  • The Grisly Underside of Fossil Fuels

    “As recently as the 19th century, the grizzly race discovered fossil fuels and everything changed almost overnight. What followed was an explosion of the grizzly population, leaving little ecological room for the survival of other species – to say nothing of the environmental requirements for a complex organism like H. s. sapiens.” Continue reading this...

Quantum physics, dialectics and society: from Marx and Engels to Khrennikov and Haven By Ben Gliniecki

9 December 2013 — Socialist Appeal

 Quantum physics occupies a fascinating place at the cutting edge of modern scientific research. First developed in the early 20thCentury, quantum theory is allowing today’s scientists to plumb new depths when it comes to matter and motion. A new book, Quantum Social Science, by Andrei Khrennikov and Emmanuel Haven argues that applying the logic of quantum theory to social systems can take our understanding of human society to a whole new level.

Cancer of Corruption, Seeds of Destruction: The Monsanto GMO Whitewash By F. William Engdahl

19 December, 2012Global Research

Because of the power vested in the EU Commission in Brussels, Belgium, with command over a space encompassing 27 nations with more than 500 million citizens and the largest nominal world gross domestic product (GDP) of 18 trillion US dollars, it’s perhaps no surprise in this era of moral promiscuity that powerful private lobby groups such as the tobacco industry, the drug lobby, the agribusiness lobby and countless others spend enormous sums of money and other favors—legal and sometimes illegal—to influence policy decisions of the EU Commission.

The World Of Free Energy By Dr. Peter Lindemann

27 December 2011 — Global Research

In the late 1880’s, trade journals in the electrical sciences were predicting free electricity and free energy in the near future. Incredible discoveries about the nature of electricity were becoming common place. Nikola Tesla was demonstrating “wireless lighting” and other wonders associated with high frequency currents. There was an excitement about the future like never before.
