    Only scientific opinion that matters is the one that you agree with — even if it is 1 out of a 1000.

    The only scientific opinion that counts is the one that the Universe agrees with — even if it is unknown/ignored by the Human Race.

    Whe Earth was Round LONG before anyone noticed, even before there was anyone TO notice.

    Welcome to Objective Reality!

    The Earth is an oblate spheroid.
    The Fossil fuel titans want their money and they don’t give a shinola what it will cost us. They won’t be paying for it.
    It is politically incorrect the ways we can mitigate our effect and in turn save on costs. And it will cost in many ways by many means already now and more in the near future.

    Well, heck. It’s not that the politicians who think they know more about science than the scientists are going to be alive in fifty years when the scorched chickens go to Greenland to roost. And those that are will have their nicely air conditioned mansions in the Rockies, all paid for.

    Would this disease happen to cause delusional thinking? That’s symptomatic of an STD spread by human contact with vulpes vulpes, an epidemic in the U.S.

    Actually 3% rather have corporate money than a reputation in science.

    75 % of Americans believe in Angels, it must be true. Caution when listening to concensus, as George Carlin said, " you know how dumb the average person is? Well half are dumber than that"

    Of course, denial from the left about all the hormones and sex hormones in our water and how they’re causing so many disorders is never mentioned here. BUt that’s because science is only used when it agrees with your position, much like “tolerance”.

    Regarding the linked strip, it appears most commenters, like our fearless cartoonist, conflate speciation with adaptation and just call the whole mess “evolution.” Almost everyone does it, which is why it’s so unusual to hear an intelligent discussion of the topic.
    .
    It’s very similar to how global warming is conflated with ozone depletion. Same idiocy, just different areas of science.
    .
    The exact area of idiocy? Thinking that you can understand something scientific without studying it. Sorry, everyone: science is complicated; even the scientists only know their part of it, usually. The rare ones who know multiple areas are usually the ones who make the revolutionary theories.

    I feel obliged to quote Henry Barnett MD, FRCPC, sage of stroke research at U Western Ontario: “[Scientific] ‘data’ is not the plural of ‘anecdote.’” So, science is not merely the collection of ‘educated’ opinion, but conclusions based on the skeptical view of the evidence that any and all can see/touch/smell/hear. If they only would try to do so.
