It's fabrication by little minds who reject learning about the climate science and who have made it their duty to demonize anyone who is interested in conveying what scientists have learned about what we are doing to our one and only planet Earth. Since my position free's me of the constraint students and scientists exist under - I feel it my duty to keep exposing the malicious dishonest underbelly of the double-standard of our current climate science education dialogue.
But, right now the issue is maliciously slandering my dad in order to demonize me. Thing is, I had wonderful dad! Not perfect, but better than most, and way the heck more interesting than any of my friends' dads.
Dieter Werner Miesler (7/20/1925 - 5/22/2006)
Durango resident Dieter Werner Miesler died in Durango from complications of pneumonia and longstanding Parkinson's disease on Monday, May 22, 2006. He was 80.
He was born to Helmut and Olga Miesler in Breslau, Germany, on July 20, 1925. His family said he was artistically inclined. He became a self-taught musician, writer and photographer. By his late teens, he played the bass, cello and piano.
Mr. Miesler was drafted into the German infantry in 1943. He was injured and captured by the British in Italy and imprisoned in Egypt.
While a prisoner of war, he became a trustee and formed a jazz band. For the duration of the war, he and his band entertained British officers at the officers club.
After the war, Mr. Miesler returned to Germany. He married Hungarian-born Ildiko Valeria Fodor, a music librarian, in 1946 at Lake Constance, Germany.
Because of the deprivations of post-war Germany, the Mieslers immigrated to the United States in December 1955 with their three children and settled in Chicago. Mr. Miesler worked at Altman's, Chicago's largest camera store. At night, Mr. Miesler played the jazz organ in dinner clubs. On the side, he cultivated his love for classical music, playing and touring with the Chicago Chamber Orchestra as a bassist.
Mr. Miesler began a German bimonthly magazine Die Neue Welt (The New World), which he single-handedly produced, wrote, photographed and edited, while the family published, assembled and distributed it.
His family said it was a literary and visual success, but lacked a sufficient audience. They still treasure copies from its one-year run.
In 1968, the Mieslers moved their family to Burlingame, Calif.
There, Mr. Miesler established Dietrich Foto-Grafic. His family said, "He was artistically talented and a persuasive salesman, but he was a poor businessman."
The business failure put stress on the Miesler marriage, and the couple eventually divorced.
At the age of 50, Mr. Miesler enrolled in Foothills College to study physiology and massage.
While working with an older client who was facing amputation because of poor circulation, his massages improved the blood supply so that the limb was saved.
After earning a bachelor's degree in psychology and gerontology and a master's in health science from San Jose State University, Mr. Miesler created the DayBreak Geriatric Massage Project.
He produced numerous instructional videos, correspondence courses and teaching aids about the muscle system. He toured nationally to present workshops.
After almost 20 years at the Daybreak project, Mr. Miesler began to exhibit the neurological symptoms of Parkinson's.
He turned the business over to a longtime associate, and it has developed into the Daybreak Geriatric Massage Institute.
In April 2001, Mr. Miesler moved to Four Corners Health Care Center in Durango to be closer to his son Peter Miesler.
Family members said they will miss his "irrepressible, witty, charming spirit."
