Surely there is some objective science to be found these days
You make a good point though, people abide by there providers for the most part, but are there no providers that are altruistic? If we can't believe a scientific consensus, what's left to believe in? A factor that really does make things different these days is trust, or should I say trust lost. I used to trust the gov, schools, history, professors, preachers,scientists, the news.... and now I do not know who I could honestly trust
I just find it hard to believe that there are no independent science organizations that maintain integrity and pursuit of truth and bettering ourselves and planet. Hell let's bring in Neil deGrasse Tyson, I trust him
ETA: So do you think this guy in the OP is dishonest in his statements? I thought he was convincing and represented the latest consensus amongst scientists. Where would you go to find out as many facts as possible surrounding this issue?edit on 7-8-2012 by speculativeoptimist because: (no reason given)
