New Slander of Reich on Slate.com – How about writing a rebuttal?

New Slander of Reich on Slate.com – How about writing a rebuttal?

"Dr. Wilhelm Reich’s Orgasm-Powered Cloudbuster"
http://www.slate.com/blogs/atlas_obscura/2013/08/19/see_wilhelm_reich_s_orgasm_powered_cloudbuster_at_his_orgonon_estate_in.html

Well, here it is, one of maybe 50+ similar things since the publication of the Christopher Turner book two years back, all repeating the Brady slanders from 1947, like chattering parrots or laughing hyenas.

Most everyone getting the OBRL postings has benefited from Reich’s work and discoveries. So how about taking time to go to Slate, at the link provided above, and leave them a comment setting the record straight? If you can’t think of anything to say, then just tell them what they do is wrong and false, and recommend they read Reich’s own writings for a change. Or reference my new book to them, which exposes the ugly details.

If you haven’t already got and read this new book, then do so now, to obtain the proper ammunition in the struggle against the liars.

What’s needed is to swamp these kinds of slander-smear websites and newspapers with rebuttal commentary, steering their readers to more rational websites and books.

If this sort of thing is not opposed with some vigor, it only grows stronger and louder, and more rational voices are purged from the public sphere. It is not written in the cosmic ethers that good and truth will prevail over evil and lies. That is determined by how people act, and what they don’t do, as much as what they do.

More on Saharasia, “Climate Change” and Hot versus Cold

More on Saharasia, "Climate Change" and Hot versus Cold

Firstly, here’s another verification of the Saharasia findings (http://www.saharasia.org), on how massive starvation and forced migrations would have triggered the onset of human armoring, social violence and war, during the early period when climate rapidly converted from wet-green-lush into bone-dry-barren.

Secondly, over the last months, I’ve collected a number of interesting articles on the climate debates. As usual, little of the evidence against the CO2 theory of warming gets equal public attention. Here are some of those lesser known materials.

Another Verification of Saharasia

August 3, 2013

Science magazine recently published a study which adds another substantial support to my Saharasia findings from the early 1980s. The Science study is titled "Quantifying the Influence of Climate on Human Conflict" by authors Hsiang, Burke and Migue.
http://www.sciencemag.org/content/early/2013/07/31/science.1235367

Abstract: A rapidly growing body of research examines whether human conflict can be affected by climatic changes. Drawing from archaeology, criminology, economics, geography, history, political science, and psychology, we assemble and analyze the 60 most rigorous quantitative studies and document, for the first time, a remarkable convergence of results. We find strong causal evidence linking climatic events to human conflict across a range of spatial and temporal scales and across all major regions of the world. The magnitude of climate’s influence is substantial: for each 1 standard deviation (1?) change in climate toward warmer temperatures or more extreme rainfall, median estimates indicate that the frequency of interpersonal violence rises 4% and the frequency of intergroup conflict rises 14%. Because locations throughout the inhabited world are expected to warm 2 to 4 deg. by 2050, amplified rates of human conflict could represent a large and critical impact of anthropogenic climate change.

This is an interesting set of findings, though unfortunately set into the CO2 theory of global warming. My Saharasia findings, published here:
http://www.amazon.com/Saharasia-Origins-Sex-Repression-Warfare-Violence/dp/0980231647
indicate, indicate the core regions of Saharasia are exceptionally hot, but also charged with atmospheric aerosols and dusts, as well as being of exceptional low humidity and carrying capacity.

This situation forces inhabitants into nomadic lifestyles, living on the marginal edge of existence. When a drought hits, they may go into famine and starvation conditions, triggering land abandonment and mass migrations, along with raiding and war against other cultures. My findings are more complex that merely that, however, but you can get the book for the details, and also visit our Saharasia page for more details and summary articles in many world languages.

The Science study did not investigate the core Saharasian desert regions, unfortunately, only some of the sub-Saharan zones.

Here’s a popular rendition of the newer findings.
