A friend of mine sent this link. It calls to mind the saying, “Numbers don’t lie, statisticians do.”
Don’t be fooled by the global warming hysteria. We SHOULD be good stewards. We should avoid waste. We should conserve water, recycle when practical, reuse when possible. But, we shouldn’t limit ourselves by perception. I often say that a good engineer can draw a straight line with one data point . . . but he shouldn’t.
Make sure you question the data and recognize that there may be more than one explanation for any event. AND always question the motives of the messenger – even me.
