Japan Says “iie” To Kyoto

The treaty, not the city! (“iie” is Japanese for “no” by the way). What do the Japanese mean by “No”?

“Japan will not inscribe its target under the Kyoto protocol on any conditions or under any circumstances.”

Wow! Not a lot of wiggle room there! I guess the Japanese got ticked that they didn’t win any of the “Fossil Of The Year” awards, and are trying to make a bold, early run for next years contest!

Dr Dean Edell To Retire From Radio.

Share Button

I just found out Dr. Dean Edell is retiring from the radio scene. I wrote this line on Facebook:

I can’t describe the HUGE impact he had on me.

So what do I do? Describe the HUGE impact he had on me.

He is the reason I became a skeptic, not afraid to ask question. His insistence to point out flaws in even major published studies showed me it’s OK not the automatically assume that you should alter your live because of one study.

Oh Well. Dr. Dean’s wisdom will be missed. I hope the guys at The Skeptics Guise To The Universe will have him on as a guest in the next few weeks. He blazed the path that they are following.

PS. Note that Edell started his show years before a certain politically minded guy popped up on the scene. Could have helped that certain politically minded guy in his rise to prominence, but decline because he didn’t want to mix politics with his show. I wouldn’t be suprised to hear that certain politically minded guy give Edell a mention.
