Truth and Science

Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth; a documentary about the truth and, well... truth of global warming, is a lovely platform for the geeky, earnest politician/science professor. Who knew a slide show could be so darn compelling?! I think Gore finally found a way to run for president on his terms. Cool.

Scientists and such seems to be on the radar today. Here are some quotes from Baltimore's sublime Urbanite Magazine

If you haven't found something strange during the day, it hasn't been much of a day.

-John Archibald Wheeler, American theoretical physicist

Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas

-Marie Curie, Polish chemist, pioneer in the field of radiology and two-time Nobel Prize winner

It has yet to be proven that intelligence has any survival value.

-Arthur C. Clarke, British author and inventor
