There is such global hysteria about climate change that few would stop to consider its potentially positive effects. To attribute all global warming to CO2 in my opinion is lousy science. And I wonder who gets funded these days: Those researchers who lament global warming or those who simply want to study it as calmly and objectively as possible?
Not too hard to guess.
But that’s the point. Science is not entirely objective. It’s a human enterprise, grounded in social norms and expectations. Unfortunately, too many folks these days are brainwashed by science to appreciate that. So that’s why I often call science the “new religion” of the 21st C.
