Re: How are we going to save the planet?

Thanks. He may well be scientifically trained but that doesn't qualify him to pose as an "expert" on a field which he has not specialised. I was trained in engineering, but in electronics so I wouldn't claim to be an expert on bridge design. Apart from maybe Wien Bridges . Climate is an immensely complex subject and there are doubtless studies which are flawed but the concensus seems to be that the recent more rapid changes coincide with the rise in industrialisation. Diet is another area open to misinterpretation, remember all the fuss about animal fats being bad for us? That has been proven to be untrue and even the guy who first published the work admits the conclusion was flawed. I never stopped eating butter anyway!

As for the applause at the end, audiences are generally polite .
