global-warming.jpg“The models solve the equations of fluid dynamics, and they do a very good job of describing the fluid motions of the atmosphere and the oceans. They do a very poor job of describing the clouds, the dust, the chemistry and the biology of fields and farms and forests. They do not begin to describe the real world that we live in. The real world is muddy and messy and full of things that we do not yet understand.”

Freeman Dyson a Professor of Physics at the Institute for Advanced Study, in Princeton writes on how technology causes political problems.  He makes perfect sense in a simple statement that you have to agree with, if you have half a brain.  “The public doesn’t have much use for a scientist who says, Sorry, but we don’t know.”   We want  Scientist to provide us with the answers and we tend to believe scientist who have sound confident answers to our questions.  I doubt a scientist that says “I don’t know” would get much respect, nor would he receive any grant money for any research.  If he failed to show results for the work he had been doing,  his future grants would look pretty bleak also.  This is just my own cynical ramblings about how little I trust anyone, business or corporation because I know the world worships the all mighty dollar.  My ramblings do not have a whole lot to do with the professors article, his article is pretty informative about some over looked facts on global warming.  Some I agree with some I do not and some I just don’t even want to consider but it is a good think piece. I suggest you read it, even if you are tired of all this global warming crap.  Edge
