I assume you mean the Crichton speech. I printed it out and will read it by Tuesday, for certain. However, politics is extremely pervasive in science these days. With a single notable exception, space exploration is conducted by governments. The large cyclotrons are being built with government grants. I can't say for sure how many university research projects are funded through government grants, but my guess is that it's well over half. And these are BECAUSE the scientists have sold their souls to the devil (I think you already know how I feel about most government projects).Originally posted by RC:
Well if you haven't read that first article, you should when you get a chance. He talks about how general consensus has nothing to do with science and makes a great point. Keep politics out of science.
I'll get back to you once I've read the speech. Why couldn't they let it have full width lines? It took 12 pages when it should have taken about 5.Originally posted by RC:
According to the article, like "nuclear (new - clear not new-kew-ler ) winter" , global warming is being pushed for political reasons and I would be very susceptible to that if he's right. Great analogy.
AND, that is something that REALLY gets up my nose! Say what you mean for Pete's sake! I hate being manipulated.
Amen to that.Originally posted by RC:
I will close by saying that I still feel it is past time to get off the fossil fuel teat, global warming or no. The expense is greater than economics. No other excuse needed.
