To Orwell Today,

Hi Jackie,

Reading your items on climate, made me also think about another climate prevelent today in our ORWELLIAN Society. This is known as the climate of FEAR.

Hardly a day goes by without our news media putting out sensational discoveries that pain killers cause death, heart attacks, breast cancer; male Viagra causing strokes; smoking kills everyone; mobile phones cause brain damage; car exhaust poisons us; herbs are dangerous; no physical jerks cause heart disese etc, etc. Then there's FEAR of terrorism with body searches at airports, 4 million CCTVs, helicopters, surveillance, 75% police budget, FEAR of neighbours, stranger dangers, etc. Everyone's a potential terrorist. No wonder rates of mental illness are soaring.

Best regards,
Raymond Wills

Greetings Raymond,

Yes, the weather wizards are busy in all areas - even with their Climate of Fear.

All the best,
