I Wonder What Galileo Is Doing Tonight...
I find it irresistible not to at least take a moment to wonder aloud what Galileo is doing tonight. My hope would be that the great man is resting in peace and that his head is NOT spinning in his grave. How, now, can Galileo possibly find peace when so few top-rank scientists -- all NOT members of the IPCC -- refuse to speak out clearly regarding whatsoever they believe to be true about the distinctly human predicament presented to humanity in our time by certain unbridled over growth activities of the human species that loom ominously and threaten to engulf the planetary home God has blessed us to inhabit?
Where are more leaders like Al Gore who are willing to support the good science of climate change that is being presented in the solid scientific observations and consensually validated empirical data from Dr. R.K. Pachauri and the IPCC?
Perhaps there is something in the great work of Al Gore and the 2000 scientists in the IPCC that will give Galileo a moment of peace.
What would the world we inhabit look like if scientists like Galileo adopted a code of silence, speaking only about scientific evidence which was politically convenient, religiously tolerated, economically expedient, and socially correct?
