Let’s call this the “Earth Day” episode where we continue this weeks theme of arguing about the “science is settled” approach and how politics has permeated our hard sciences. In our last episode, Dr. Brian Keating discussed how politics impacts who wins the Nobel Prize. One such winner was the Former Vice President Al Gore for his focus on global warming and climate change. A decade later, much of Al Gore’s predictions have not only not come true but Gregory Wrightstone’s comprehensive book Inconvenient Facts, The Science Al Gore Doesn’t Want You To Know demonstrates newer climate data from the United Nations and NOAA showing over 60 inconvenient facts invalidating much of what Al Gore, the left, academia, and our media have been reporting for years.

Gregory is a geologist with more than 35 years of experience researching and studying various aspects of the Earth’s processes. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Waynesburg University and a master’s from West Virginia University, both in the field of geology. He has written and presented extensively on many aspects of geology including how paleogeography and paleoclimate control geologic processes. Gregory is a strong proponent of the scientific process and believes that policy decisions should be driven by science, facts, and data, not a political agenda. Greg has been interviewed on many news networks and speaks at events all over the world on his findings. Greg and his data can be found at InconvenientFacts.xyz and on Twitter @GregoryWrightstone.

Dr. Brian Keating, PhD, is a professor of physics at the Center for Astrophysics & Space Sciences (CASS) in the Department of Physics at the University of California, San Diego. He is a public speaker, inventor, and an expert in the study of the universe’s oldest light, the cosmic microwave background (CMB), using it to learn about the origin and evolution of the universe. He has written for many publications including Scientific American and is about to be the first speaker from the hard sciences at Prager U. Brian bravely counters much of scientific academia where he believes the overwhelming majority of scientists are atheists and “hardcore leftists” and their beliefs actually impact the politics of science. How does this affect scientific findings and those who are awarded?

His latest book, Losing the Nobel Prize: A Story of Cosmology, Ambition, and the Perils of Science’s Highest Honor where Brian “provocatively argues that the Nobel Prize, instead of advancing scientific progress, may actually hamper it, encouraging speed and greed while punishing collaboration and bold innovation. In a thoughtful reappraisal of the wishes of Alfred Nobel, Keating offers practical solutions for reforming the prize, providing a vision of a scientific future in which cosmologists may, finally, be able to see all the way back to the very beginning.”
