Goatchurch will be underground for several weeks

Stuff comes up. In the meantime, there are many things you can do. One of them should be to reach out and Adopt-A-Whore. Some are just as bad as Mr. Ebell. For example, Expert 10 looks pretty silly, evidently spends more on his haircut than his suit, and speaks a lot of tripe. Why not bag him? Leave a note to say you have done so.

What are the alternatives for action? There are many fine websites that try to document the whole clique at once, like Source watch. Others, like Exxon Secrets, try to present this vast body of information in a humane way. But it's easy to get overwhelmed and depressed.

That's why if you are not a superhuman, like me (meaning I'm not superhuman, like the people who made those websites are), you have to make it personal. You can try to fight a huge famine involving millions of people, or you can adopt one single impoverished child and make sure he has enough resources to live and enough food on the plate every day to stay alive.

Compared to this, the task of making sure that one professional liar has all of his lies laughed at in cyberspace, seems trivial in comparison.

Come on, go ahead. You know you have the anger. These guys individually don't do much work on their own, when you measure it. They work for their wage and nothing else. They have nothing to be proud about. Like anyone in that situation, they do as little as they can get away with, before bunking off to their boozey dinners, yachting holidays, expensive mistresses, gas guzzing truck-ugly twit-mobiles, and holidays in the sand. They lie to their paymasters about what a great effect they are having on public opinion, with their pathetic drivel about how the world is improved by making the rich richer. All they're doing is making us depressed because we don't know how such crap gets into our media and poisons it. Two strands of horse-tail have more scientific knowledge and credibility than any of these guys. You can be better than them on about five minutes a day. Try it. I will link to it. We can build up an entire shadow think-tank in the blogsphere that corrupt and simulate that which is paid for by Exxon. Truth and accountability in a public space at real time. This is the message of hope.

You might like to read the article in Mother Jones this month at

which details the extensive networks of "think tanks" funded directly by ExxonMobil.
