Suspicious of Science

Suspicious of Science

Scientific researcher holding at a liquid solution in a labit has become quite the fashion to be suspicious of scientists, and to claim that their point of view on anything (vaccine, climate, carbon, etc.) is biased. This is quite the contrast to about 4 decades ago when progress through science was most admired.

Charlie Pierce, political writer, summed it up this week…

Now, though, a substantial portion of the population has been taught that the worst people in the world to trust are the people who know the most about anything. They have nothing to say to us. We have our good old common sense which, I have learned, grows less sensible as it grows more common.
