Newtonian laws tell us precisely what will happen, where and when. I don’t expect Climate Science to do this, and it’s a good thing
Painting opinions as facts destroys good factual points. What we want to say isn’t always what others want to hear.
Politics is not science. Decisions should be made with all interests represented for proper cost/benefit analysis.
