Yeah nowhere did I say the court case justifies the science.
The science does a perfectly fine job of
justifying the science.
What this court case does is justify all the lying media that have been trying to undermine and derail the science.
But just as I predicted in the OP - some people have this disinfo so deeply ingrained into their bloodstream there's just no going back to facts and
Here's the thing about "science" (And for the record, I LOVE science, but I'm also a realist)
Science is merely a bunch of theories and hypothesis' waiting to be disproved by other scientists. It's happened throughout history, and will continue
to happen. Facts can be made to support any theory. Anything we humans touch or create is fallible.
"Science" once told us that we could not survive in space, other scientists said no, and now we have a space program. They once said Mars had canals
Ever hear of the "Blank Slate Theory"? Scientists once believed that when we were born, we were an empty vessel and our experiences and knowledge we
accumulate throughout life is all we have. We now know that we have genetic instincts, and inherited traits that help determine our personality.
You should also look up "Einstein's Universe" or "Static Universe"even he was wrong, and had to abandon a whole body of work.
How about the 1989 "Invention" of Cold Fusion? It was hailed as the next big thing, and was later revealed to be a farce.
My point is, don't hold too much faith in science, it's an ever changing field. And will continue to be so.
Do I believe in Climate Change? Yes, I absolutely do. I however believe we are wasting our time trying to fight it or reverse it.
It's cyclic, and is caused by the sun. We may aggravate it a bit, but the Earth has survived far worse than we humans.
Our time would be better spent realizing how stupid we were to build cities on the coasts of our continents, even though history is full of stories
that the seas have been rising since the last Ice Age, and looking for ways to correct that mistake.
