Seventy years ago as a student I struggled to understand our science teacher as he spoke of a room full of ping-pong balls each one making two more as they collided.
We had just received news of the Hiroshima atomic bomb attack. The papers were full of pictures showing complete devastation as far as the eye could see. The scientific "experts" were quoted and all agreed that the city would be uninhabitable for the next 70 years!
Today Hiroshima is a modern, bustling city with a memorial building shell and a park as the only physical reminders of that terrible day.
Are the scientists of today of the same ilk as they forecast warnings of the effects of climate change?
Never miss a local story.
With the California wildfires right now producing more CO2 than a billion car exhausts and our government regulating our economy out of business with power-plant emission controls that will send us into bankruptcy, which scientists should we believe?
The world's human population is increasing every two weeks at a rate equal to the population of the State of Israel; perhaps we should be looking to do something about that.
