Notes & Theories science blog According to Houssin, and the Tracking Clean Energy Progress report 2013 published by IEA this spring, we are not on track to avoid the serious consequences of climate change. Progress and Its Problems: Toward a Theory of Scientific Growth. An international group of astronomers believe they have answered the question of how young stars are able to fuel the growth of their own stars. Has traditional philanthropy had its day? What a theory is supposed to do etc etc. Berkeley: University of California Press; 1977. Now it is the turn of climate The problem with climate science, however, is that its vision of the problem has gradually become more and more dramatic. Studies of resource depletion, such as "The Limits to Growth" of 1972 were attacked and demonized in the 1980s, and then consigned to the dustbin of "wrong" scientific ideas. In other words, you've run up against the limits of our current knowledge; to make any further progress is going to take an innovation that's not yet a part of our scientific lexicon. Simultaneous timing of multiple intervals: Implications for the scalar property. Longino HE: Science as Social Knowledge: Values and Objectivity in Scientific Inquiry. To explain the problem, the IEA produced three possible scenarios of global warming that show the link between energy policy and future rises in average global surface temperature of 2C, 4C and 6C. Their refusal to engage on issues of economic injustice and equity blocks progress towards cooperative solutions to environmental and social ills, and lessens the prospects of achieving mid-to-long term global ecological sustainability.

Larry Laudan's 'Progress and its problems: Towards a theory of scientific growth' explains this beautifully. Image credit: Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory / Paul Preuss / Michael Crommie. Laudan L: Progress and its Problems: Toward a Theory of Scientific Growth. This observational study and literature review aggregate what is known regarding the quantity and quality of terrestrial ecosystems - particularly old-growth and primary forests - necessary to sustain the biosphere. The great unsolved problems of your time look like missing puzzle pieces, while the tools, equations and current theories begin to look like misshapen pieces that don't quite fit where they're supposed to. Like moving taxes on work towards taxes on raw materials and fossile fuels in particular.
