You obviously know so little about how science works I would just stop posting in the thread if I were you.
Do explain Einstein.
Science is not an absolute and no scientists think it is so. Science is the best approximation to explaining the world at any point in time. The aim of science is to improve, even destroy, previous explanations. Science is constantly changing our understanding of the world. You obviously don't think about the millions of moments in your day that have been considerably improved by science. You just want it all "now".
Science created the atomic bomb: politicians used it.
Science will very soon create almost external batteries: politicians will surpress it.
But are they immune to making mistakes?
Or just admitting to it when they do?
As far as the diesel issue is concerned, I am sure that most scientist knew that diesel was far more poisonous that petrol. So where was the backlash when Blair decided that diesel was the future? Have they no voice? It all seems very odd to me.
And I do have a great appreciation of science , and of course i understand how it works. What I do not understand is why is why , when a theory is wrong, and has caused untold damage, it is never the fault of the scientist, but of those who listened to them. Seems like a good deal.
