the irony of science

Mar 10, 2018 | 08:18 1 Been thinking ...imagine that..lol.

So the science is clear about using methyl bromide is bad for the environment and really is ineffective against bugs we don't have below 5 degrees. And it doesn't work below that temperature. India ignores that science and can't be convinced to use another fumigant.

On the other hand I am told to believe science in regards to climate change when there are some red flags in my thought process.

1. The accuracy of measuring devices is not the same compared to 100 years ago.
While discussing this at the home farm where there is both an old mercury thermometer and a new digital one and comparing results ...its easy to find half a degree difference.

2. Mankind"s measurements are a millisecond in the whole scheme of things.

3. Why does the local newscast always provide records for the day that go back 75 years. Seems odd that if it was this cold or warm on this day that long ago its pretty hard to find a warming or cooling trend.


Just some thoughts for a saturday morning.

But the question remains ....why is one science rammed down our throats as the gospel....and the other science that is proven ...ignored? Reply With Quote

The agenda clearly is bigger governments (especially at the U.N. level) and also a distribution of wealth beyween countries and from private sector to government. Reply With Quote

Answer to Bucket: Because "science" has become a political tool to legitimize propaganda. Sort of reminds me of how some "cowboys" trick, coral and slaughter wild horses. Reply With Quote

1. The accuracy of measuring devices continues to improve no doubt. Unless you suspect the thermometers of 100 years ago consistently either under or over-estimated there is no issue.
2. True enough but at the same time our human lifetimes are usually measured in spans of 90 years or less and so these are the time frames that our societies must deal with for their very survival.
3. Entertainment - and only in North America from my experience. Never seen anyone claiming these represent climatic changes, nor could they as one day doesn't represent a trend. Reply With Quote
Mar 10, 2018 | 22:54 7 It's like this fact.
Scientists said for decades that the adelie penguin population in Antarctica was in decline due to climate change. Suddenly scientists find the decline with a 1.5 million super colony of the birds on an island chain off the continent. Apparently, climate change didn't affect the island chain, only the continent.

At least scientists didn't hide the measurement. It just moved away from where they had been looking. Reply With Quote
