Debunking Alex Jones and Wolfgang Halbig’s ludicrous Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theories

January 6, 2018 // 2 Comments

On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza fatally shot his mother before murdering 20 students and six staff members at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, before turning the gun on himself. A number of fringe figures have promoted conspiracy theories that doubt or dispute the events that took place that day – claiming, for example, that the massacre was actually orchestrated by the U.S. Government as part of an elaborate plot to promote stricter gun control laws. The most [...]

Top Ten Myles Power F**k-Ups

December 6, 2017 // 1 Comment

It has been well over two years since I last made a video correcting ten mistakes made on my YouTube channel. I would like to think this length of time is a reflection of the amount of research and fact checking that goes into every single video, but the truth is that another correction video is well overdue. Luckily for me, my audience loves nothing more than pointing out inconsistencies, misconceptions, and flat-out errors in my content, which means I have an abundance of things to [...]

Ozone Therapy Debunked – Part 3

November 24, 2017 // 0 Comments

It’s been quite some time since I last sat down and wrote a blog post on the subject of ozone therapy – an alternative treatment (aka something that has not been proven to work) in which proponents recommend exposing yourself to relatively large concentrations of this toxic gas. Those who recommend it believe that ozone has the ability to cure, amongst other things, cancer, AIDS, and multiple sclerosis – despite the fact there is no credible, peer reviewed evidence to support the use of [...]

Debunking 9/11 Conspiracy Theorists

November 14, 2017 // 0 Comments

A sceptical look at claims made by ‘truther’ protestors at ground zero in September 2012 from the viewpoint of a chemist. For those of you who don’t know, a ‘truther’ is a person affiliated with the 9/11 Truth movement, who rejects the official explanation provided for the 9/11 attacks and instead claims that a US government conspiracy was to blame. The videos in this series cover everything from the alleged thermite found in the dust to the collapse of World Trade Centre 7. [...]

CBS Publishes a Video That Implied I Was Promoting MMS

October 26, 2017 // 1 Comment

ver the past two years, I have been producing content online warning people about the dangers of MMS and exposing these charlatans for the quacks they are. Recently, I investigated a pseudo-clinical trial that took place in Uganda, which apparently showed 154 people being cured of malaria using MMS. I showed, using their own footage, how they designed an experiment to get the results they wanted, and how there is no evidence for MMS’ magical properties. So, you can imagine my surprise when I [...]

Agent Orange – The Synthesis of 2,4,5,-Trichlorophenate – #3

October 18, 2017 // 0 Comments

  The tactical herbicide Agent Orange, which was used in South-east Asia by the United States Department of Defence during the Vietnam War, was made from equal parts of the n–butyl esters of 2,4,5-T and 2,4,-D. For almost half a century, controversy has surrounded its use, mainly because it contained a highly toxic dioxin impurity (TCDD). Despite this impurity being thoroughly investigated, there is still a lot of confusion by the public regarding how it was formed and why it took so [...]

Exposed: Fake Ugandan Red Cross Medical Trial That Fed People Bleach

October 8, 2017 // 3 Comments

Stitched together full documentary exposing the unethical “clinical trials” that took place in Uganda back in 2012. In this video I show you how those involved designed an experiment to fool people into thinking you can cure malaria by drinking bleach. What was once known as Miracle Mineral Supplement, but for legal reasons had to change its name to Miracle Mineral Solution (MMS), is a 28% sodium chlorite solution in distilled water currently being sold online as a cure-all tonic. Jim [...]

Debunking Chemtrails – Depopulation & the Space Preservation Act – #3

September 22, 2017 // 1 Comment

An interesting conspiracy theory that has grown in popularity over the last decade is the belief that the long-lasting white clouds left in the sky by aircraft are actually chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed on the population for nefarious reasons. The people who believe in this conspiracy theory call these lines in the sky ‘chemtrails’ and feel so strongly against them that back in May of this year, they organised protests around the world. In an attempt to better [...]

Agent Orange – Corrections – #2.5

September 5, 2017 // 2 Comments

I am currently in the middle of producing a series of videos documenting the history of Agent Orange, the herbicide used during the Vietnam war. I published my first video on the subject back in June, but originally started researching for the project at the beginning of 2017. Despite spending a considerable amount of time with my head in the books before I made my first video, I have recently found out that I have somehow managed to make two rather large and embarrassing mistakes in my first [...]

Kyle Kulinski: Another Lazy YouTuber

August 23, 2017 // 1 Comment

Like the Young Turks, Kyle has found himself an inflammatory blog post, this time by The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), which tells the story of an ‘escalating legal battle’ between Monsanto and the people who believe that they got cancer from exposure to glyphosate whilst spraying weeds on farms, orchards, and lawns. The blog also reports that the law firm representing these people (Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman) have emails that show ‘Monsanto’s efforts to marshal scientists in [...]

Debunking Chemtrails – Contrail vs. Chemtrail – #2

August 16, 2017 // 0 Comments

This might surprise you to hear, but everyone I talked to at Save Our Sky (a protest against chemtrails and geoengeneering) accepts that aircraft can make white lines in the sky called contrails. These contrails are almost identical to chemtrails, apart from one major difference according to the protesters. Contrails only last seconds, whereas chemtrails can persist hour after hour. But is this true? Can contrails only last for a few [...]

Will GMOs Kill Us All? – Skeptics in the Pub Talk

July 17, 2017 // 1 Comment

For decades now, we have been told by organisations like Greenpeace, GM-Freeze, and Friends of the Earth that genetical modified (GM) food is dangerous and has been shown to be harmful to humans.They have done a great job at convincing the population of their dangers by quoting scientific literature that claims GM-food has been shown, among other things, to cause cancer, leukaemia, and stomach inflammation; but is there really any truth to this? What do the papers these organisations are [...]

Debunking Chemtrails – Introduction – #1

July 9, 2017 // 1 Comment

People online can unknowing find themselves in an echo-chamber, having their more fringe beliefs amplified and reinforced by a lack of exposure to conflicting views and evidence. That, coupled with the fact that anyone can publish anything online, has lead to a renaissance in conspiracy theories, pseudo-medical procedures, and general bad science. One of the more interesting conspiracy theories that seems to have grown in popularity over the last decade is the belief that the long-lasting white [...]

Agent Orange – Introduction – #1

June 25, 2017 // 0 Comments

Over the next few months, I plan to produce a series of blog posts followed by a series of videos documenting the history of Agent Orange by discussing its discovery and synthesis, the first warning signs which were ignored, its use in Vietnam, the aftermath of its use, the people who tried to convince us that it was safe, and the legal case against Monsanto et al and what is happening now to help those affected. In 1961, as part of America’s escalating war of counterinsurgency in Vietnam, [...]
