The UN and AIDS
As a follow up to my last two posts on global warming and obesity, here are the latest data on the real status of AIDS: still there but not out of control nor as extensive as promoted earlier.
Another example of well-meaning zealots doing more harm than good.
When will self-appointed experts ever realize that the public can be trusted with the real data, the real science and not have to be primed with inflated, fear-inducing hype?
Oh, yes, but then those self same experts, advocates and managers would be out of a job, wouldn't they?
