Well Made Point by XKCD

How to spot someone whose critical thinking skills are in need of improvement. XKCD.com has a classic today:
A New survey conducted by George Mason University is interesting:
- Over half of Americans (56%) say “global warming is affecting weather in the United States.”
- A large majority of Americans say their state and local government should make it a priority to protect public water supplies (78%), transportation/roads/bridges (73%), people’s health (72%), the electricity system (71%), agriculture (70%), and public sewer systems (69%) from extreme weather over the next 10 years.
“The great thing about science, is it’s true whether not you believe it.” Neil deGrasse Tyson
But … but …
Al Gore is fat and keeps his thermostat at 74! David Suzuki has three houses and lets his tour bus idle for hours.
Oh! Well in that case, all that science must be wrong! 😉
