Truth and fact are based on repeating experiments and getting reproducible results.

Carbon Dioxide and Methane trap heat. If you study the history of science, you’ll see that no hypothesis can never be 100% verified. Carl Popper showed, however, that an hypothesis can be falsified. Given the preponderance of the evidence from basic chemistry, as well as long-term trends (our planting zones have shifted northward), I will continue to consider the gigatons of Carbon Dioxide we emit to be a grave threat to civilization. That should not be a political issue.

Thus I do label the GOP approach to climate change as well as, in many of its quarters, a 6000-year-old earth as “anti science.” I miss the old GOP from the pre-Reagan era, but there you have it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
