I heard about The Great Barrington Declaration this morning on WMAL‘s Mornings on the Mall. Here is how the declaration begins.
What should we make of the declaration? Well, we are always being told “the science says”, “to follow the the science”, that “the science is settled”, and so forth. The idea is that “science” has the answer and that the “science” is not debatable. Nonsense! Science is like any other type of knowledge. We know “something”, but we have incomplete knowledge. Now we each have to make sense of what we know and figure out what we can do with what we know. In politics, debate is “required” to make the best decisions.
Various political interests would have us do what they want us to do, and what these various political interests want us to do is not necessarily in the best interests of our family, friends, neighbors, and countrymen. So, some of these various political interests would scare us into doing what they want us to do. The signers of The Great Barrington Declaration have provided us an opportunity to resume the debate and to do so calmly.
