I am always dismayed when credible and transparent organizations are assaulted with baseless charges by anonymous posters who disagree with the work done by the Pacific Institute. It is my experience that commenters like the one who challenged the Institute on its transparency and leveled defamatory claims, are simply substituting ideology for knowledge. Knowledge, in this particular case, available on the very website he or she disparaged. Critics who defame with no facts or evidence are merely frightened that science will force them to recant long-held beliefs. Changing their minds may not be possible. To concurrent studies had concluded that some people are so ignorant that they don't know they are ignorant.
Pacific Institute's work in the international communities have empowered women and increased access to clean water for several communities in India, etc. Their collaboration with other sustainable non-profits abroad deepens the understanding and knowledge gained from community surveys and they continue to be one of the world's leading green non-profits in the water sector. Kudos to them, keep up the good work PI!
