Ignorance is everywhere but in some places it is more deeply spread than in others and on some topics, such as the environmental protection I can find myself in despair about the ignorance. Fox News is a good example, although it is not unique. I have seen similar ignorance displayed on the BBC and by the Advertising Standards Authority. Some may be well educated but education does not make you smart.
The following is a good and recent example of what I mean.
Three journalists on Fox Business Network hardly showed themselves to be informed or even educated in that clip. Apparently the viewers were told
- Germany has a lot more sun than the United States
- Solar will not work when its cloudy or rainy and
- Solar just won’t work on the East Coast of America.
It would be funny if it was not so tragic.
