  1. There's that word 'confidence'...which may be known by more than one application.

    That sounds ... honest !

  2. BTW If it is proposed that scientific use is meant, I say that is a response to the sally being Gored by the dictionary ( Being a scientist is not his major claim to fame ).

    I like Forbes' take "Blood And Gore: Making A Killing On Anti-Carbon Investment Hype"
    Where it comes to promulgating and capitalizing upon carbon-climate-crazed sociopolitical pressure, you would be hard-pressed to find two better authorities.
