A Frank Statement or two!

Dear Contibutor,

I’ve read your recent article

A FRANK STATEMENT

Recent reports have given wide publicity to a theory that Global Warming is in some way linked with human beings.

Although conducted by scientists of professional standing, these experiments are not regarded as conclusive. 

At the same time, we feel it is in the public interest to call attention to the fact that eminent doctors and research scientists have publicly questioned the claimed significance of these experiments.

Distinguished authorities point out:

1. That research of recent years indicated many possible causes.

2. That there is no agreement among the authorities regarding what the cause is.

3. That there is no proof that Global Warming exists,

4. That statistics purporting to link Global Warming with human activity could apply with equal force to any one of many possible causes. Indeed the validity of the statistics themselves is questioned by numerous scientists.

 The recent cold snap should have convinced the few gullible enough to still believe the great global warming conspiracy that the planet’s climate isn’t changing. It’s clear that climate scientists have made up the whole thing in order to maintain their funding. Reputable scientists have to resort to funding from private industry in order to do independent research.

 

It’s worth remembering that Governments of all persuasions have a history of lying to us. Who can forget the WMD fiasco, when we invaded Iraq on a false pretext.  Similarly, we’ll find that “Climate Change” has been invented by the Labor party to balance their budget. 

 

Thankfully they haven’t been as extreme in silencing their opponents as the previous Howard Government who wouldn’t even allow David Irving into the country for fear he expose another conspiracy.  As for Port Arthur, we all know the dubious nature of how Julian Knight was convicted and that lead to Australians having their guns taken away from them by force, by aliens from Rothwell.  

The fact is that CO2  is a natural occurring gas and is actually good for trees. All scientists know this. But climate scientists seem to try and suggest that we can have too much of a good thing.  

And I’m concerned that it seems to be a rewriting of this:


“A Frank Statement to Cigarette Smokers

As it appeared in the New York Times and 
over 400 other newspapers on January 4, 1954

     RECENT REPORTS on experiments with mice have given wide publicity to a theory that cigarette smoking is in some way linked with lung cancer in human beings.

      Although conducted by doctors of professional standing, these experiments are not regarded as conclusive in the field of cancer research. However, we do not believe that any serious medical research, even though its results are inconclusive should be disregarded or lightly dismissed.

     At the same time, we feel it is in the public interest to call attention to the fact that eminent doctors and research scientists have publicly questioned the claimed significance of these experiments.

     Distinguished authorities point out:

  1. That medical research of recent years indicates many possible causes of lung cancer.

  2. That there is no agreement among the authorities regarding what the cause is.

  3. That there is no proof that cigarette smoking is one of the causes.

  4. That statistics purporting to link cigarette smoking with the disease could apply with equal force to any one of many other aspects of modern life. Indeed the validity of the statistics themselves is questioned by numerous scientists.

     We accept an interest in people’s heath as a basic responsibility, paramount to every other consideration in our business.

      We believe the products we make are not injurious to health.

     We always have and always will cooperate closely with those whose task it is to safeguard the public health.      For more than 300 years tobacco has given solace, relaxation, and enjoyment to mankind. At one time or another during those years critics have held it responsible for practically every disease of the human body. One by one these charges have been abandoned for lace of evidence.

     Regardless for the record of the past, the fact that cigarette smoking today should even be suspected as a cause of a serious disease is a matter of deep concern to us.

     Many people have asked us what we are doing too meet the public’s concern aroused by the recent reports. Here is the answer:

  1. We are pledging aid and assistance to the research effort into all phases of tobacco use and health. This joint financial aid will of course be in addition to what is already being contributed by individual companies. 

  2. For this purpose we are establishing a joint industry group consisting initially of the undersigned. This group will be known as TOBACCO INDUSTRY RESEARCH COMMITTEE. 

  3. In charge of the research activities of the Committee will be a scientist of unimpeachable integrity and national repute. IN addition there will be an Advisory Board of scientists disinterested in the cigarette industry. A group of distinguished men from medicine, science, and education will be invited to serve on this Board. These scientists will advise the Committee on its research activities

This statement is being issued because we believe the people are entitled to know where we stand on this matter and what we intend to do about it.”

If you’re just going to plagiarise, we already have plenty of journalists on staff who do that much better than you!
