Aliens Cause Global Warming

As part of my contribution to the success of The Sagamore Journal, I’d like to offer readers and comrades a selection of prose which has been influential in molding my thoughts. This first submission is in tribute to the late Michael Crichton – a master of writing and an analytic thinker who could seamlessly mold science with fiction to compose literary works that bordered unbelievability. Mr. Crichton was also one of the few scientists who was asked several times to appear before congress and offer his views on the state of our world. The following link is perhaps his most famous speech.

Memorable quotes:

There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.
