So safe to say the sixth great extinction event is well underway and yet we’ve only just warmed the planet 1.8 degrees F over the pre-industrial climate. What happens when we warm it 3.6 degrees, the agreed limit in Paris in December, 2015 and at a faster rate?

Tony Noerpel's latest article titled Certainty and Reality.  In this article, he also received and kept comments from author William Byers of The Blind Spot, Science and the Crisis of Uncertainty

 

Certainty therefore is not to be confused with reality or truth.

 Byers writes: “We must always be vigilant about the tendency to trade in our freedom for the illusion of security and certainty.  The danger is ideology, the power of an idea or a set of ideas. Science and religion both have the potential to become ideologies with disastrous consequences.” p.68

A couple of profound quotes out of this article:

 

Ideology is quite the opposite, being based on beliefs rather than evidence and a sense of certainty or unwillingness to compromise or admit errors despite overwhelming evidence against one’s opinion.

 

Science compensates for our irrationality while ideology encourages it.
