A Question for James Lovelock on His Predictions of Global Depopulation and the Desertification of Europe: What is Your Evidence That This is Coming?
James Lovelock is 88 and turning into an apocalyptic crank. In a recent interview with Decca Aitkenhead of The Guardian, he makes some rather extreme predictions supported by no evidence whatsoever: His latest book, The Revenge of Gaia, predicts that by … Continue reading
Journalist Howard Kurtz has been goofing up lately, but the way he addressed it this past weekend is incredibly impressive (as can be seen in the below video). It’s rare, almost unheard of in any context, for someone to so … Continue reading
I stumbled on the quote below while reading Walter Isaacson’s excellent recent biography of Albert Einstein. Einstein was being asked by an American journalist about the anti-theoretical pragmatism of Thomas Edison. Edison liked people with a lot of practical knowledge in their … Continue reading
