I have a quibble with Dr. Ricky Rood. In Dr. Rood's blog "Salience: On the Eve of the 2016 Election" he states:
Science-based knowledge and knowledge in general has become conflated with political and cultural groups of people.I think it is a mistake to use the word conflated here. That word has misleading connotations. Who did the conflating? No one. It just inevi...

I ran across some YouTube videos and a blog by doctoral student Marc Hudson. He has a very British sense of humor and sometimes talks about things that bore me to tears [no doubt a reflection on me], but nevertheless he also talks about interesting things, too. For instance his interviews of Kevin Anderson are quite good. I am just kidding abo...

The role of CO2 in photosynthesis, has been a major talking point of climate change denialists for some time. One attractive quality this theme has is that there is a sizable body of research and practice backing up the notion that increased CO2 can benefit plant growth. (For instance, see the third IPCC report on impacts to...

Come See Me Tonight: It's about Time, Dammit

By: bappit, 02:51 GMT le 06 février 2016


A comment by Dr. Ricky Rood regarding his blog “Won't cha let me take you on a sea cruise? (It's about the hiatus.)” reminded me of the days when I spent time reading books like The Philosophy of Symbolic Forms by Ernst Cassirer and The Human Condition by Hannah Arendt.
