What happens when you stretch the the epistemic boundaries of science too far
The kind of dogmatic science this article discusses is especially nefarious because it gets around the separation of Church and State. No constitutional clauses prevent the government from pushing this new religion. It's happening already in elementary schools.
“My argument should not be misconstrued as a wholesale dismissal of the need to reduce CO2 emissions” The so-called science of C02 as a driver of climate is extremely flawed. To the point where it’s absurd to agree there is a need to reduce emissions. Honest science demands two things - well, really only one. Honesty. The honesty to seek falsification of your hypothesis. The honesty to seek reproducibility of your conclusion. Perhaps it isn’t even honesty that’s required but the simple search for what is true. Very very few climateers are interested in a “truth” that would contradict their beliefs. Most climate science is quasi religious. The truth is revealed, and it’s the job of the priesthood to offer “proofs” of the divine revelation. What we have is confirmation bias masquerading as science in service of a cause. Such “noble” causes are always the province of the faithful. Bottom line - seek the truth or stop pretending you have any truck with science.
