I am now a fan of Tom Murphy


Tom is an astrophysicist, with impressive credentials, and in this chatty and powerful essay, he has made me into his fan.

He covers several related matters, passing from one to another in a logical way. The start is the tribal way many people respond to trigger words like “COVID” or “climate change,” then gives the best explanation of how a scientist assesses evidence of any kind on any matter, and then applies this to the case study of climate change.

The essay is quite long, but hey, it’s the holiday season. You will both enjoy it and feel informed, educated, and if you are like me, validated.

About Dr Bob Rich

I am a professional grandfather. My main motivation is to transform society to create a sustainable world in which my grandchildren and their grandchildren in perpetuity can have a life, and a life worth living. This means reversing environmental idiocy that's now threatening us with extinction, and replacing culture of greed and conflict with one of compassion and cooperation.
