The scientific method is a process for experimentation that is used to explore observations and answers questions. Does this mean all scientists follow exactly this process? No. Some area of science can be more easily tested than others. For example, scientists studying how stars change as they age or how dinosaurs digested their food cannot fast forward a star's life by a million years or run medical exams on feeding dinosaurs to test their hypotheses. When direct experimentation is not possible, scientists modify the scientific method. In fact, there are probably as many versions of the scientific method as there are scientists! But even when modified, the goal remains the same: to discover cause and effect relationships by asking questions, carefully gathering and examining the evidence, and seeing if all the available information can be combined in to a logical answer.
Even though we show the scientific method as a series of steps, keep in mind that new information or thinking might cause a scientist to back up and repeat steps at any point during the process. A process like the scientific method that involves such backing up and repeating is called an iterative process.Except if you're a liberal demanding action on climate change. Then scientific method, not so much. In fact, if you question the left's take on climate change (which used to be called 'global warming' but then the earth stopped warming) they will refer to you as a 'science denier.'
Scientists cannot fast forward the future to determine what the earth's climate will be, although there is evidence that the earth is warming very slowly.
What scientists cannot know at this time is how much human beings contribute to climate, and even if we do, will anything within our power be able to have an effect on climate change.
The hypocrisy within the climate change movement is palpable as the limousine liberals fly to protest demonstrations in their private fuel-guzzling jets, burning more fossil fuel in one flight than the average person burns in a year. (You know who you are, Mr. DiCaprio.)
In Washington D.C., thousands of scientifically challenged protesters are marching Saturday on President Trump's 100th day in office. The are demanding action on climate change and they plan to encircle the White House.
Even former President Obama, a person who told us that generations from his election that "this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal," ended up not changing anything but race relations.
In Boston Common, people gathered to challenge Trump's first 100 days in office by protesting his agenda.
Socialist organizers say about 300 protest marches are expected to take place around the country.
The Peoples Climate March, a name reminiscent of Communist-style regimes, object to President Trump's relaxed restrictions on oil drilling, mining and greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants.
None of the protesters actually works in any capacity at a job these industries produce but they sure as day use what they produce.
