    I think scientist in general are far more conscientious people than oil executives. The scientific community has ethics, which is clearly something the oil industry lacks.

    I guess by your logic we should do away with all potentially dangerous technology then?

    Ethics? Climategate?

    Regardless, scientists do not necessarily control their creations. Do you believe what Monsanto does with its patented genetically modified organisms is ethical? If not, why don't Monsanto scientists step in and stop the company?

    You're right, I hate technology. Congratulations on seeing through my facade.

    In that post, it is clear that I want all "dangerous technology" abolished.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."
