Senior Editor of Scientific American calls for world government and "species-wide alteration in basic human behaviours"

Gary Stix, Senior Editor at the Scientific American, confirms in his recent blog article what many have suspected; what global warming alarmists want is a Brave New World, ruled by a (socialist) World Government:

Effective World Government Will Be Needed to Stave Off Climate Catastrophe

I’ve come to the conclusion that the technical details are the easy part. It’s the social engineering that’s the killer. Moon shots and Manhattan Projects are child’s play compared to needed changes in the way we behave.

To be effective, a new set of institutions would have to be imbued with heavy-handed, transnational enforcement powers. There would have to be consideration of some way of embracing head-in-the-cloud answers to social problems that are usually dismissed by policymakers as academic naivete. In principle, species-wide alteration in basic human behaviors would be a sine qua non, but that kind of pronouncement also profoundly strains credibility in the chaos of the political sphere. Some of the things that would need to be contemplated: How do we overcome our hard-wired tendency to “discount” the future: valuing what we have today more than what we might receive tomorrow? Would any institution be capable of instilling a permanent crisis mentality lasting decades, if not centuries? How do we create new institutions with enforcement powers way beyond the current mandate of the U.N.? Could we ensure against a malevolent dictator who might abuse the power of such organizations?
Behavioral economics and other forward-looking disciplines in the social sciences try to grapple with weighty questions. But they have never taken on a challenge of this scale, recruiting all seven billion of us to act in unison. The ability to sustain change globally across the entire human population over periods far beyond anything ever attempted would appear to push the relevant objectives well beyond the realm of the attainable. If we are ever to cope with climate change in any fundamental way, radical solutions on the social side are where we must focus, though. The relative efficiency of the next generation of solar cells is trivial by comparison.

Stix is calling for "Species-wide alteration in basic human behaviours" in order to achieve World Government. This is clearly in line with the kind of "human engineering" proposed by professor New York University professor S. Matthew Liao and his co-authors.

Something has clearly gone terribly wrong in some parts of the scientific community!

Scientists can be remarkably gullible and unpleasant when playing politics. I'm not quite sure why.

what is scientific notation
Scientific Notation include in the mathematics course. In the world of science some time we deal with numbers which are very small and those which are very large. In some branches of science large numbers while in others very small numbers are used.
