We’re #1!! And it’s pretty clear that we as a country have been slow to respond to COVID-19. I maintain that at the core of this is a shortchanging of science at best and a disbelief in science at worst. Now, mostly everyone is paying attention to 19 and we as a country are scrambling to make the best of it like Stafford behind our O line has for years. It is what it is.
So my off-topic question is:
Will our country’s obvious early error in dismissing/ignoring the science of this contagion make us more likely to buy into the science of global warming?
Both are worldwide “diseases”, with the speed of the approaching problem being the major difference. Will we as a country pay more attention to scientific consensus in the wake of this pandemic? Or maybe the scientific community just got lucky with their pandemic models this time…
