It is obvious from comments I see on blogs and in newspapers that the general public doesn’t really understand the scientific method nor the scientific mindset. In a recent Realclimate.org blog post regarding the Guardian Newspaper’s coverage of the Climate Research Unit email hack, the following comment by Dr. Steve Easterbrook sheds light into the mind of a scientist. Dr. Easterbrook is a professor of computer science at the University of Toronto who is using his computer skills to address the challenges of climate change. Dr. Easterbrook has consented to the use of his comments here.
