The Daily Show – Burn Noticed – YouTube

One of my biggest complaints is when the degrees, the time spent learning of their subject, plus the time spent studying and researching their subject of the scientist is ignored.  I get so angry when someone with no training or study of a subject then claims to know more than people who spent their lives doing the work.   I recently seen a video on YouTube where a teenage boy thought he would school Professor Stephen Hawking in science because he was reading a book by a religious author his pastor gave him.  He somehow decided he simply knew more than a professor who had studied the subject all his life.   I hear such stupid shit and it makes me angry.  The same with the idea there is a question about climate change happening.  No there is no longer a question.  The data is in, gathered by people who spent their careers studding this data and what it means.   Just because you are a used car salesman who got elected to congress and is well funded by the oil and chemical companies doesn’t mean you are suddenly a climate specialist.  The rest of the world gets this.  It is real , it is happening.  The only country that pretends it is not happening is the USA.  Why, because big business is offering big money to people to deny it so they can make more profit without regulations on their businesses.      It is that simple.  Sadly the ones who suffer are the people.   Hugs

  1. Perhaps even more worrisome is the recent rise of anti-science sentiment on the extreme political left. Very troubling times we’re living in.

    • Wow I was not aware that was a huge problem yet, I thought it was more isolated. Sad and you are right, it is troublesome. Hugs
