NZ scientists: Intellectual rigor mortis set?

SCIENCE IS DEAD IN NEW ZEALAND!
WHY HAVE SCIENTISTS STOPPED LEARNING?
The Government and its Royal Society of New Zealand have released a “scientific paper” at a briefing in Wellington, concerning future earthquake risks for Christchurch and New Zealand, a report said.
“Nobody can predict when an earthquake will strike, the Prime Minister’s chief science adviser says,” according to the report.
THE BIG WHITE FACT IN THE ROOM remains that FIRE-EARTH Blog has successfully forecast earthquakes including those in New Zealand Region, Japan Region and elsewhere. AND the forecasts have been posted on this blog for everyone to see.
“The Government and the Royal Society of New Zealand today released a scientific paper at a briefing in Wellington, looking at earthquake predictions and future earthquake risks for Christchurch and New Zealand.” Report said.
“During the briefing, Sir Peter Gluckman hit out at Ken Ring’s controversial prediction that another big quake will hit Christchurch on or near March 20.”
FIRE-EARTH Moderators do not know who or what “Ken Ring” is. However, here’s a short list of possibilities as to his identity and brief:
- Ken Ring is another one of those ‘Internet prophets’ feeding on FIRE-EARTH quake forecasts
- He is a straw man created by NZ government to discredit by association earthquake forecasts released by FIRE-EARTH Blog
- All of the above!
[NOTE: Prior to successful earthquake forecasts being posted on FIRE-EARTH blog, the Ken Ring character had not surfaced. What’s the plan? IF Ken Ring’s latest prediction for another major earthquake on March 20, 2011 to strike Christchurch, New Zealand fails to materialize, and it probably would, then he would be “eaten alive” by the NZ Prime Minister and his cabal, the Royal Society of New Zealand and the country’s corporate media. Once Ken Ring has been discredited and severely dealt with, they hope New Zealanders would no longer take any earthquake hazard warning forecasts by any source seriously. Note also the confidence by which Gluckman et al make their ‘NO-quake’ statements, as if fully briefed on the plot!]
“Scientists could identify regions vulnerable to quakes and predict the likely magnitude of a quake but not the precise locality, depth or timing, he said.” The report added.
“Certainty as to a particular event or outcome just cannot be achieved. What therefore may happen, can only be described in terms of risks and probability.” Gluckman said.
And here’s the crunch:
“Scientifically there’s no reason not to rebuild in Christchurch,” he said.
Scientifically there’s “no reason not” to build a house of cards, or a castle in the sand … but you don’t authoritatively influence people to occupy them, or invite thousands of visitors and their uncles to come along, too, FIRE-EARTH contends.
[More than a third of the Christchurch earthquake victims, those whose name have so far been revealed, seem to be clueless foreigners who probably thought New Zealand was a safe place.]
What sort of science is that which mandates an allegedly democratic regime to condemn hundreds of thousands of people by locking them in an area where two significant earthquakes have struck within five months, killing or injuring thousands of people, destroying many homes and much of the infrastructure?
“GNS Science chief executive Alex Malahoff and Royal Society of New Zealand vice-president Keith Hunter were also on the panel.” The report said.
May they live long enough to eat their scientific paper! And that’s a prayer, not a “curse!”
Scientists who turn politicians, or those who fail to help people staying alive shouldn’t receive any money from the public purse!

Why did YOUR govt bury earthquake warnings which were meant to alert people, especially foreign tourists/students visiting New Zealand?

Truth is the bottom line, income from tourism, is more important to your government than human lives.
“and our govt are just people, citizens, like ourselves…”
REALLY? Are you a multimillionaire like your PM John Key?
Your PM is a greedy individual who has amassed a massive fortune, albeit from “immoral activities,” and who has shown no interest in the livelihood of quarter of a million NZ kids living in abject poverty.
That’s what you call democracy?
