Why Science Matters

This blog is about current issues where science is involved in defining problems and seeking solutions.  To me, science is not a catechism of truths to be accepted, but is rather a method of discovery with rules to follow. Early in my life, I learned and adopted the scientific method of creating an explanation, testing it experimentally, questioning and modifying, and continuing to explore alternative ideas.  Ideas that work out in life as predicted become knowledge, but are also subject to further experiences that challenge basic assumptions.

At the moment, climate change or global warming is a major issue, and there are several posts and pages here regarding this.  The climate system is amazingly complex and our knowledge of it is only beginning, so the subject is fascinating to those who are curious about life and nature. Science Matters is my attempt to share what I have learned over recent years in reading and commenting on climate and related issues.

      Hi Christel, I see that you are a social scientist with a mission to help the IPCC push its agenda more persuasively. Despite having the commanding attention of most of mass media, politicians and celebrities, skepticism is increasing, and rightfully so.
      However, the problem with IPCC is not a failure to communicate. Rather, the organization itself is corrupted and its practices in need of radical reform. It will remain unbelievable so long as it ignores science and scientists with valid disagreements from “consensus” science.
      A good summary of what is wrong with IPCC, see About the IPCC http://climatechangereconsidered.org/about-the-ipcc/
      For examples of how IPCC has subverted rational and objective research into the climate system,
      See Rise and Fall of CAGW https://rclutz.wordpress.com/2018/01/11/rise-and-fall-of-cagw/
      and See Rise and Fall of the Modern Warming Spike https://rclutz.wordpress.com/2018/03/11/rise-and-fall-of-the-modern-warming-spike/
      Christel, you need to dig into the systematic perversion of science by IPCC in service of a political agenda. That is the real story hidden from the general population.

    Good response, Ron.
    I wonder if Christel has any sense of self-awareness or would be willing to question the methods, motives, underlying worldview, etc. of the climate consensus.
