Quotes

"Even setting aside disagreement among experts over the likely consequences -- and the inescapable uncertainty that disagreement reveals -- climate change represents a difficult risk-management challenge. Policy responses necessarily integrate both scientific information and subjective value judgments. Science can inform us about the climate system and our relationship with it. But it can’t tell us whether to care more about our children and their children or about ourselves. Science can’t decide what is fair for different nations and peoples..."
Princeton University astrophysicists Dr Timothy Brandt and Dr David Spiegel made the suggestions in a paper called "Prospects for detecting oxygen, water and chlorophyll on an exo-Earth."
(Inside Science)-- More than 100 years ago, the playwright Oscar Wilde had one of his British characters say that England and America "have everything in common nowadays except, of course, language.” It turns out, according to linguists, he was almost right. But lately, the two languages are getting closer."
"If you had a magic wand, what would be the best present you could give to a boy or girl to encourage them to take up a scientific career?"
