Regulation Rain

My neck of the woods is experiencing rain, lots of it. The view out of the study, usually looking down the valley towards the sea is presently light grey windy rain. The barometer indicates 1000 HPa.  Weather is coming from the north nor-east.

But in France where it is also raining alot, with flooding, calls for more regulation of human activity to forestall global warming seems high on the agenda, according to Armstrong Economics. Yet it was the 1910 Paris flood that was the most devastating and Paris was flooded for two months.

But we can stop this climate capriciousness by raising taxes and flooding ourselves with more regulations, so our climate priests assert.

But what would we know.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.
