Another Look at Science

Big Picture News, Informed Analysis

Since the early 1980s, grave concerns have been raised about the process by which scientific evidence gets produced.

betrayers_of_the_truth_coverTwo months ago, I embarked on a research project that veered off in unexpected directions, metamorphosing into a more time-consuming and labour-intensive exercise than anticipated.

Along the way, I learned a great deal about how science gets practiced in the real world – as opposed to the idealized “Science” of my imagination. Yes, I’d known full well that climate science was a mess. Rather than inspiring confidence, legions of its practitioners act as though they’re selling something. On the one hand, they’re quick to dismiss alternative perspectives. On the other, they grasp at every half-baked rationale available to advance their own worldview.

Where is all the scientific evidence for these outrageous assumptions ? Well this has happened before with gravity waves in 2014

    Science is being dumbed down and the majority of people don’t care or are to stupid too realise.
