I found myself wondering if this Joint Science Academies Statement is for real. I really want it to be, but I like the so-called Chief Seattle thing and the so-called Mandela inaugural address a lot too. Wishing something doesn’t make it true. You would think a thing like this would get a whole lot of notice.
Anyway, it is linked from the Royal Society, and it also appears on the US National Academies’ site, which is reassuring. I would hate to have to retract that posting.
I really want it to be true. So, I am glad to report that it appears to be true, though I admit to still be hanging on to a shred of doubt.
So now I wish it were getting more attention. Why isn’t this on everybody’s lips these days?
