Brighter Earth, Dimmer Scientists
If Article 19 readers were asked to comment on data showing the Earth brightening in the 1990's, reversing a dimming trend over the previous 3 decades, we could have come up with the same admitedly clueless theories for why and what it all means that real live scientists did in the NYTimes on Friday. Shouldn't they really have a better grip on such things? I like how the article refers to their befuddlement as a "major gap in the understanding". Most of the time, scientists are probably just as dumb as the rest of us.
