Richard Feynman’s Key to Science in 63 Seconds, via Brain Pickings.
The longer version is better:
“Physicist Richard Feynman explains the scientific and unscientific methods of understanding nature.”
It’s all good, but the key element of it comes ca. 5:30, regarding “vagueness” in theories.
That’s AGW in a nutshell. If you fail to grasp why there are legitimate skeptics, just pay careful attention from 5:30 on for a couple minutes.
Then compare to AGW claims, including the need to shift terms: “Global WARMING” to “Global CLIMATE CHANGE” and so forth.
reminds of something I heard – “If you break the thermometer because you don’t like the temperature, either the experiment and/or your theory is flawed. Best to start again when you’re not red in the face.”
