Happy New Year to everyone. I will return in a day or two to regular posting, unless overwhelmed by global warming or other such things. It seems global warming is pretty much the end-all excuse for everything now. The Malaysian airline that had its plane crash into the ocean blamed climate change. In all fairness, I am not surprised a business would try and blame something for its problems—it’s just very counter productive and really sounds clueless.
One should worry more that people now blame everything on climate change than they should worry about global warming itself. Bad science and using science to circumvent personal responsibility will take humans down much, much faster than CO2. So for 2015, we should concentrate on improving people’s understanding of science and accepting that the climate will take care of itself.
