"Living is easy with eyes closed, Misunderstanding all you see"
This site was launched in January 2003 as a companion to The Millenium Project site. People kept asking me to give some pointers to sites which I could recommend as an antidote to the hate, the lies and the nonsense in the sites listed at The Millenium Project. The Green Light is a collection of sites which I believe give reliable information and which can be used as references or to find counter-arguments. I don't necessarily agree with everything in these sites (just as I don't necessarily disagree with the content of all sites listed in The Millenium Project), but I believe they offer a better picture of reality than the collected badness at the other place. The list of sites here will be added to and updated regularly. Suggestions for additional sites are always welcome.
Facts Versus Fears : A Review of the Greatest Unfounded Health Scares of Recent Times by Adam J. Lieberman and Simona C. Kwon. It seems that every time you pick up the paper there is another horror story about some health threat from food, the environment, vaccines, or any number of other sources. This book looks at the things we have worried about needlessly.
