If you want to believe news reports Prf. James Lovelock think we are too stupid to stop climate change.
What he actually said was
"I don't think we're yet evolved to the point where we're clever enough to handle as complex a situation as climate change, the inertia of humans is so huge that you can't really do anything meaningful.”
He also said
“What I like about sceptics is that in good science you need critics that make you think: 'Crumbs, have I made a mistake here?' If you don't have that continuously, you really are up the creek.”
“The good sceptics have done a good service, but some of the mad ones I think
have not done anyone any favours. You need sceptics, especially when the science gets very big and monolithic.”
The problem is that Prf. James Lovelock says something one minute that makes you go wow! and the next minute you go d'uh! If you can sort out his wows from his d'uhs you can spot a mad skeptic. Let me know when you can do that and i'll give you a job sorting good from bad data recovery programs that i keep recieving for beta test.
