Although it is good that Mr. Gore made his movie,"
andreached a fair amount of folks who may not otherwise be reached, this is not, and shouldnever be a political issue.Scientific data should be as clear as water to all. What is dangerous and what is notshould be self-evident.What is good medical care and what is bad ought to be clear, too. I guess we have alsogone and politicized that one.We live in a world that has considerable experience with natural disasters. Perhaps theone closest to us, because it happened in our own country, is hurricane Katrina.
should indeed be no less real.There are a couple of strange things going on here.First, science seems to have lost any sense of objectivity of data or findings, at least for most of the public. I always believed science was an ideal, that scientific pioneers wereheroes, that this was one of the most noble -- if not the most noble -- of human pursuits. Ido not know one person who is not involved in the scientific professions who feels thisway.I do know people who talk about "religion vs. science" as if they are two boxers in a ring,in this -- the most relitigious country on Earth. For me, there is absolutely no duality between the two pursuits. None. Perhaps someone remembers Clarence Darrow, thefamous defense attorney in the"

So basically, the Earth could have been created inseven days if they were really long days nobody could have measured anyway. Why dowe still debate this? Why can't we all get along?
