There is a lot of noise - but much of it is not actually "information" at all!
When someone says "look up" for example they are producing noise - but they are not actually giving you any information. And when someone says
"contrails cannot last hours" it is easy to check whether that is correct or not - you will only find that statement supported by others who say it is
true, and not by any science whatsoever. So again they are not providing information.
Or when someone says "there is too much aluminium in the soil" and provides some scarey figures - aluminium in soil is not something you think about
every day - so where do you go to find out what levels it should be?
but there are some tips - for example look for original tests and not just someone repeating something. Also look at what is being compared - for
example often aluminium in soil is compared to the EPA limit for drinking water - but drinking water is not soil so it is not a valid comparison!!
So yeah - it is easy to think there is too much information to process - so I think it pays to take it one item at a time if you are new to the
discusion - think about what it is that strikes yuo as the most interesting or important point, and then concentrate on that for a while, looking for
credible research and sources, and move onto the next one when you are satisfied you know enough about it.
Eventually you will get a picture of several points that you know well, and thus a better handle on the situation.
