In this episode of PDRP, we discuss how science affects politics. And how it doesn’t. And how it’s used and abused to achieve political goals, and how everyone should apply just a little bit more critical thinking in their lives, and why global warming actually is a real problem. Also – please, don’t be offended anyone, you know me, and I’m trying to be as objective as possible. And this whole global warming and scientific issues are those who carry a lot of meaning and importance to me. Today’s guest is – Ryan Caligari, from Rumor Flies podcast, our fellow Dark Lord and you should totally check him (and his buddies) out – http://www.rumorfliespodcast.com/ he’s a chemist with deep knowledge about the subject matter, and even though I don’t agree to all of his political views, I do respect him for what he brings to the table – and that, dear listeners, is the promotion of rational thought. We should all have more of that. And empathy. They’re tied together.
