  1. I'm beginning to think we no longer need any more information to understand what's happening. The data are all around us in real time, and now it's time to get past the academic sphere. People need to notice what's real. Since they are not doing that, more information is not going to help. If they won't even listen to themselves, WTF hope is there they will listen to experts? What hope they will recognize expertise when they see it? What hope they will recognize nonsense when they see it? We are blinded with stuff.

    If I sound discouraged, it's because I am. Longer words and more sophisticated arguments preach only to the choir.

    • Never underestimate the value of preaching to the choir.

      But you are right in thinking that more information isn't enough to get people accept. But just because it isn't enough doesn't mean it isn't important or useful. I think it is, though this particular example could use some work in making it more engaging, even I was bored.
