Uncommon Descent Serving The Intelligent Design Community

Less science, more crackdowns!


The global warming hype, unlike the nutrition freakout or the far side of Darwinism, could actually be true. But the behaviour of the proponents tells against that.

From Willie Soon and István Markó at :

Increasingly, we are seeing more and more outrageous and aggressive anti-scientific claims that anyone who is not willing to embrace the dangerous global warming bandwagon and to condemn its culprit, CO2, is actually the equivalent of a Holocaust Denier.

This sort of name-calling, loud self-promotion and fact twisting actions, closer to political rodeo than to healthy scientific debates, are simply telling us that our opponents have already lost their fallacious arguments and are getting short on any real scientific facts.

Professor Albert Einstein had it perfectly right. When he was told about the publication of the pamphlet “100 authors against Einstein” in 1931, he replied: “Why 100? If I were wrong, one would be enough.”

It is fitting to hear the comment of Professor Hubert Goenner about the three main editors/contributors of “100 authors against Einstein”:

Obviously, these three men were united not only by their common interest in philosophy and opposition to relativity theory but also by their incompetence in the fields of mathematics and physics. More.

"The global warming hype, unlike the nutrition freakout or the far side of Darwinism, could actually be true." Only in the sense that Star Wars could have actually happened long ago in a galaxy far, far away. Its a speculation. There are lots of those and they are less than a dime a dozen. If you are looking for a scientific idea, Global Warming hype is not the place to find one. Andrew asauber
