Established Science

The past years have been resounding to loud proclamations that certain political actions were made necessary by Established Science. The Global Warming policies, as well as the measures taken in dealing with Covid19, are prime examples where the general population has been cowed by loud proclamations that inconvenient, unappreciated and expensive measures were necessary to save humanity because they are required by the realities of Established Science. I beg to differ. More than that, I am reminded of a warning from years past:

“… if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.”

This was Churchill warning us of the Lights of Perverted Science. We should examine contemporary threats. As a scientist I suffer from today’s politicians co-opting convenient scientists on both sides of an argument and muddying the waters of reality for their own purposes.
