Can Science Save Us?
An intriguing question and discussion from University of Bristol scientists. Mankind has utilized science and technology to both aid and hinder life on Earth. And in many areas, from poverty to climate change, we have the opportunity to make a real difference using the knowledge stored inside our collective brains.
But without the action of humans, science is agnostic and can not act on its own. We must weigh our options and decide what to do. It’s a fairly obvious statement, I know, but I think it gets lost in news of discovery X or invention Y.
Without action, they’re just words and numbers.
