It's gotta be there someplace...
I heard a sound bite on the radio news a few days back about humans using up too much of the sun’s energy.
I tracked it down to an article in the Sydney Morning Herald, an Australian newspaper.
Guess what? At this point in time, the paper is available online at no charge.
To tell you the truth, since the Sydney Morning Herald article mentioned above was at an Australian site, I wondered if the whole thing was a joke. (I admire the Australian sense of humor and self deprecation, having spent a bit of time visiting an Australian family member in that country.)
But, to root for the truth didn’t take long. I urge anyone reading this to take a look at the links provided and do some of your own rooting.
What was the conclusion reached by the researchers? Did the Sydney Morning Herald put a spin on it? Did the SMH reporter appear to have read the complete paper? Did the scientists put a spin on their research?
Was the discussion on Snopes interesting, enlightening and/or entertaining?
You can have lots of fun rooting for the truth!
An oft repeated web aphorism is I read it on the internet so it must be true! And the more web-links one can provide in citation, well, there’s your proof! A search on the I read it... phrase brings up some interesting articles that I present below as absolute proof:
Also, let’s hope everyone knows about phishing. It’s actually very simple to make a site that looks really professional. Or even looks like a trusted site that it is not!
Remember, it’s up to you to decide who’s real and who’s fake.
