http://www.cnn.com/2010/OPINION/04/1...ex.html?hpt=C1

Just wondering what you guys think about his thoughts. Don't look at it from a religious aspect.

the part on vaccines...

Never heard of him before but I love his thinking. I think he presents some great arguments against "denialism" and I think I might have to look into his book.

Thanks for the post.

I didn't read the entire article, but what I did read I was like "Christ, why hasn't anyone tackled this head on before?" lol.

Seems like a decent book. However, I think one has to be warery that it doesn't lead to people accepting 'facts' without a throrough, balanced, thought about it with researching things for themselves.

I say this mainly because I'm a huge skeptic on Climate Change. Not that I don't think it isn't real, I just don't believe CO2 emitions are to blame. I also don't believe cutting CO2 emitions will help. And I certainly don't believe that Climate Change is anything unusual - when the Romans were in Britain 2000 years ago, they had the place covered in Grape Vines, as an example. But anyway, this is another topic and could lead on to opening a big can of worms.
