Fractal Radio | Episode 30 – Science vs Politics (Case Study)


This little episode was prompted when one of my favorite pundits, Jimmy Dore, discussed the plans of some fisherman to sue oil companies for causing global warming. Which said fisherman implicate in their troubles catching fish.

I point out that nitrification from agriculture and urban sources is a much stronger causal link for marine life dieoffs.

I then launch into a broader discussion of the fact that science does not work by consensus, and dissect the ‘97% of scientists agree’ claim.

The boundary between science and politics needs to be understood and respected.

Thanks for watching.
