This is basically how global warming predictions work and precisely how theoretical physics works.

So if I understand that graph correctly, microscopic stuff should be extremely tasty?

I know that dirt tastes like, well dirt.

Disagree. Randall Munroe's surmise is interpolation, AGW alarmism is extrapolation.

Americans are surprisingly rational about climate change, new study finds

Title seems benign, but then it leads off with:
Quote:
0:01 I am fascinated by science deniers. Flat earthers, anti-vaxxers, climate change deniers,
0:07 it’s just amazing to see how badly the human brain can malfunction. Of course,
0:12 it’s not just a brain problem, it’s also a social problem. In particular, the fraction of climate
0:17 change deniers differs strongly by country, and it’s especially high in the United States.
This bar graph is where she finds confirmation for her bias. Which isn't, apparently, against Indonesia.

What I find interesting is the part where 'the climate is not changing'. Mexico and Indonesia are close to agreement ....with me. Maybe one percent chance the human contribution is the primary driver.

Climate change is pretty much a religion.
Pick whichever CO2 sensitivity model that you like best and pray/panic or point and laugh accordingly.

2.8! 5.1! ...

Scot Adams would ask, "So, you can buy politicians but you can't buy scientists?"

There's a tucker Carlson video where he talks about how doctors are paid anywhere from millions of dollars to tens of thousands of dollars by drug companies to push products.
Another video not by tucker talks about how medical science has the most retracted papers.
Science is for sale to anyone willing to fund research.

Not just for sale, but also open to anyone uttering support of the en vogue ideology. The people uttering it can even do so in jest, and it's accepted science.

What do we do? Research, the publishing process, and peer review is still the most reliable way to discover how the universe works.

When the gatekeepers are compromised, the only solution is new gatekeepers.
