Baseball statistics to climate science … insight from advertising

August 23rd, 2012 · No Comments

For most of 2012, the following ad has been running.

Sadly, too many take baseball statistics far more seriously than climate change science. (After all, who would put up with George Will’s truthlessness about climate change if thrust into discussions about baseball?)

This ad reminds of me of something …

This ‘doubting’ sounds all too familiar in terms of: let’s not act until the science is 100% settled and “proven”.

Well, that isn’t how science works.

And, waiting to “prove” means inaction even in the face of massively supported scientific understanding of humanity’s impact on the climate.

Sadly, unlike debates over obscure baseball stats, the demanding of 100% “proven” certainty when it comes to climate chaos has real-world implications.
