Science and the civil part of civilization is being exploited by big government and greedy corporates. Together we can do something about that. For dumb reasons, explained below, you can “Buy” me $1 units of chocolate support.*

|After requests seemed only fair to make a button for Canada, NZ and the EU. :- )|
|Other non-paypal, non-credit card options (ie. mail and direct transfer details).|

*Why this daft arrangement? Would you believe — the Australian government say that I need permission to accept “donations”. (It’s your money, but you can only donate it to a Registered Charity.) So instead I’m “selling” units of $1 emergency chocolate kits which go to needy bloggers (me) – just choose the quantity. 10 units is a $10 donation. Thank you!
Your help makes a big difference
We can’t do it without you. Our household is funded largely through donations by people like you who are fed up at the failure of institutions, science associations and journalists. Thanks for your help.
Not surprisingly, there is no government job we could apply for which aims to make governments less of a burden, and there’s no big-oil funding, no UN agency, and only a few Institutes and Associations with real integrity left. Government science is being strangled. Only independent scientists are free to speak their minds, and free to follow that data, no matter where it leads.
If you can help us pay our bills, we’ll help you say what needs to be said.
Join us to get logic and reason into government policies, media stories and one day, maybe even universities.
