World makers, social network makers, ask one question first: How can I do it? Zuckerberg solved that one in about three weeks. The other question, the ethical question, he came to later: Why? Why Facebook? Why this format? Why do it like that? Why not do it another way? The striking thing about the real Zuckerberg, in video and in print, is the relative banality of his ideas concerning the “Why” of Facebook. He uses the word “connect” as believers use the word “Jesus,” as if it were sacred in and of itself: “So the idea is really that, um, the site helps everyone connect with people and share information with the people they want to stay connected with….” Connection is the goal. The quality of that connection, the quality of the information that passes through it, the quality of the relationship that connection permits—none of this is important. That a lot of social networking software explicitly encourages people to make weak, superficial connections with each other (as Malcolm Gladwell has recently argued 1 ), and that this might not be an entirely positive thing, seem to never have occurred to him.
But, you may fairly ask me, “John, never mind that, record high temperatures have continued month after month and year after year. Isn’t that enough prove the climate change problem?” Please, trust me if you can, when I tell you those record temperature claims are made they are totally invalid because the temperature records and the temperature system have been drastically manipulated with bias. Thousands of scientist depend on the Federal climate change research money to keep their institutions and person income intact. This climate change industry funded by we tax payers at the total rate of over 20 BILLION dollars a year demands these claims to keep rolling along. So the date team (part of a NOAA unit strangely in the Department of Commerce) has altered the data and collection system and data points over and over again, increasing our current temperatures every time. If you look only at the “old system of raw data” all of these increases and records disappear. That is the whole ball game. Last year was not the warmest year. Last month was not the warmest month. The correct weather events are not unprecedented by any means. The number and severity of tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, droughts, heatwaves, etc. are all within historic norms.
