Well, Don, you know, intuition runs in whatever you have of knowledge, in your head and soul, in you as you are.
Intuition has a mysterious part too, you could say, but in any case it is not always right. I think everyone has to live with uncertainty, but we all have our fields where we know something, big things or small things.
I always felt that everybody has something to contribute.
But how much do you actually know about science?
A spontaneous thought or reaction in your head would have to base itself on what’s there, the world you live in, your knowledge too.
Spontaneity comes out of a personality, and knowledge is part of that.
The mysterious part of intuition can sometimes bring you results that surprise you.
But I wouldn’t recommend running a country in this way.
It can be difficult enough in other jobs. Doing things you really don’t know how to do, it is a real balance act. You may land on your butt sometimes.
And you actually need to “sort of” know what is actually right, to have a skeleton of the knowledge that others have, the real scientists, or at least the knowledge that such a skeleton exists.
It is not really ok to do a whole project on that kind of energy, it is something you do mostly when you are desperate, or in the initial stage of a project.
Then you will have to read.
If you actually want to succeed and land on your feet.
I am happy that you actually said that you believe the climate problems exist.
But I still think you are very unwise not to acknowledge that we create practically the lot of it.
How do I know?
I am not a natural scientist.
So I think simple.
Since 1750 up to today, machines has taken over production. Not much handicraft anymore for the making of consumer goods.
They run on electricity or fuel.
To produce electricity you need for the most part fuel, coal, things like that. There are waterfalls and nuclear power pants, but oil and coal are more common.
So to produce things you need a reasonable amount of electricity or fuel.
You burn the fuel, CO2 comes out of the burning.
So production rises.
The more we buy, basically, the more oil we burn.
There you have it, in my mind.
A skeleton of knowledge.
It is not exactly enough to pass an exam, but maybe enough to have a conversation with a scientist and ask some reasonably informed questions.
So how comfortable are you in your position?
How much knowledge do you have?
Is this a fair description of the problem, would you say?
