Dark Age of Science
In my work I have found that
share the following features representing a Dark Age of Science:
The discussion following the two previous posts gives direct illustration of these features
as concerns AGW and my homepage, this blog and Book og Knols give more evidence, for those interested in analyzing and understanding these aspects of 20th century science.
It is natural to connect these signs of decline of science to the economical decline of Europe and America relative to the BRIC countries as observed in a recent talk by Vaclav Klaus. Collective fake of understanding of an economy without rational basis, may not be so functional.
