What is this Science that was adhered to and believed in? Did they ALL believe in the same thing and adhered to it?
You know that isn't true. There are groups of Scientist who all disagree of parts and section on each others views on All parts of Science.
That time, was it when they thought the world was going to freeze or when they said the earth is flat?
Come now, it's not Q-anon and social media who are saying Science is wrong. They're backed by Big Business to push for the Climate Agenda.
The people who make money pushing for the BIG climate regulations are the ones who will make money on it.
Kerry lives on the Coast. If he was worried about the sea rising, I'm think he would live in the mountains.
I do not believe everything "Scientists" say and then change their minds from one day to the next. If there is ever a one Scientist view, then I'll never listen to them again. Science is about Always questioning.
*I'm not saying people shouldn't be as responsible as they can to the environment but there are a lot of Government Control with which I do not agree.
Problem today is people, especially in your circles, will pick and choose who they will listen to, rather than acknowledge that the ones who have actually done all the extensive research and have studied everything there is on the subject (otherwise known as the experts) probably know more on the subject and ought to be referred to instead. But, no, Instead people choose to believe they are somehow smarter than these experts.
Personally, when 97% of the world’s climate scientists conclude from their research that man’s CO2 contribution is warming the planet, and have backed it all with evidence presented in countless peer-reviewed publications, then why on earth would I instead choose to listen to the 3% fringe? Why would anyone?
We know why people do, though, don’t we?
It is the same reason the GOP is the only political party in the world that does. It’s the same reason people listen to the Big Lie. It is because they don’t like what experts say: It goes against their world view, their religion, their belief system, and their circles. And, indeed, those circles are a hundred times more stronger than they were before this century, thanks to social media.
You bring up the flat earth theory. This is a perfect example of this. Galileo, a scientist, who dared to look into a telescope objectively absent an a priori belief system, shook up that belief system and was persecuted by the church as a result, being put under house arrest for the remainder of his life.
And of course, that isn’t all that is done. You people need to come up with conspiracy theories to excuse irrational belief and make it rational in your own mind. Your stated big business, collusion, election fraud, pedophile rings, and so on.
I choose to look at facts, data, and science. Of course we should always question. But we should also be able to receive the answers when they are given.
