For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled.
     —    Richard P. Feynman
From his book:  “The Pleasure of Finding Things Out
[The above quote is from Feynman’s report on the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster (frozen O-rings – the danger of which was discounted by management).  It appears to me to be equally applicable in a host of other areas:  biological warfare, fracking, corporate fishing and farming, etc.
If there is no global warming and we reduce / stop polluting, the Earth’s ecosystem continues and mankind lives;  if there is global warming and we don’t reduce / stop polluting, the ecosystem collapses and most – if not all – of humanity perishes.  We can continue to roll the dice, but who’s fooling whom?      —    kmab]
