We’ve lost sight of the most important rule in debating science
Ethan Siegel

If a small plane … would that allow you to decide? If you tracked the level of ingested fluoride … would that convince you either way? And if we could accurately measure the global average land/ocean/surface temperature, … would that allow you to decide whether humans are warming the planet?

Only if I value knowing the truth, comfortable or not, more than I value holding beliefs that I find comforting.
