Science can be mired in ideology
Re: People are entitled to their own facts on climate change.
After reading Mr. Robichauds letter I felt compelled to add my two cents concerning climate change. Humankind, for the first time in recorded history, has been able to manipulate the natural environment to levels unprecedented. We do this for survival and advancement; however, profit margins religiously satisfy the opportunists amongst us. Is our planet warming up due to human activity?
I agree the accepted concept concerning global warming is debatable. One thing that isnt debatable though, is that our planets ecosystems are the complex result of evolution. Science can explain things and help our understanding of the world around us, but the resultant human discipline of science can also be mired in ideology.
I just hope the ideological tug of war surrounding global warming has a positive outcome because the politics of humanity did not create life.
