Ebola - something for the worry warriors to keep the news service going ?

Ebol is not a virus like another . Sure its dangerous --and there are high risks of infection in countries where its spreading at the moment . But we should leave it to experts ; not vent our spleens when it appears our leaders don't care , as the Representative aristocracy of the left insisted on QandA  tonight .
This group know you can believe in both ; you can be all things to all men ; have your cake and eat it . Talk tough but allow everyone to do what they think is right .But you have to stop people talking about " whats needful" because that could take too long and even threatening to your fix .
 If you have the right people in your democracy you will be proved right . Worry brothers when one Rowan ,or even one expert appears because it may expose the panel as a bunch of  incompetent but well aligned chatterers who are linked up for the point of sychofancy.

Like the young people who want to stop people dying in Syria at the moment ,  going to the site of dying and high risk to help , may not help . You can be just a nuisance ,Your airfare alone could shelter 1000's of refugees in a neighboring country or 1000 chats on heigene by a locally trained nurse .
The disease is not as easily spread as the media make out . Katherine mentioned millions - seems very unlikely. We won't just wait and do nothing we will listen and see ifbthere is anything we can  or others more suitbly placed,  can do
As was powerfully put Labor still don't get it ---- Their love affair with Greenlabor .

"We are never short of good intentions,  we are  just short of implementors" ( Woolworth chairman )

Religious people are prone to reject Science

Brian Hoskings won't be welcome in Australia once they realize Brian Hoskings  is going to operate like a scientist . What the CC movement want is a token professor of note , scientist or maybe  a book with 99% of scientists signing a document  that only Christine Milne has the gall to write. All they could find recently is an economist who has suspect qualifications in his home territory .  Just writing a short statement about CC to include AGW , C02 and carbon economy  would test the intellect of any High Priest -- not going to happen because they would have tried  ( conference after conference but not one dominated by scientists general) .

Brian Hoskings won't be welcome in Australia,  because like most scientists,  he makes the subject of problems risks and problems sound too complex to solve.

Paradoxically most of us earth scientists are still interested in the science,, and even the technology ( but less so in my case)  . I wonder how many others are in either (although the common  attachment to a toy by a boy is a bit terrifying)  . 
---We also know we all be extremely taxed by implementing any changes to change how our people use energy -- if we want action .
---We also know as mature practical people that government probably should NOT ever be trusted with a tax to experiment with solutions.( young ones naturally might differ and they deserve a job with better specs that Parties EVER would design for them )  I am convinced we would nearly all draw the line with giving ANY government more money to make us behave better. Anyone want to disagree ?

And whats the faith of the fearful  based on .... really ? let me suggest "Fear of scarcity",,,not Co2 or carbon but Oil  . Well that's interesting --if true  .They don't know much about E10 or algae to say that . They don't know much about history ecology , targeting human behavior ( the real worry ??) and sustainable agroecosystems ( surely a good place for Australia to spend more money !) Can't win war if you don't shoot straight and have everyone clear about the target . Huge problem for believers !

If going to win a productivity argument with thinking people,  all religions must state their principal concerns about evil; . where it is and what its name is need to be nailed to the door . Otherwise it won't last ....... and never ever on fear alone .
