Dr Kary Mullis won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for developing a way to copy a strand of DNA. (His technique, called PCR, jump-started the 1990s' biorevolution.) His discovery is hailed as one of the monumental scientific techniques of the twentieth century. He's known for his wide-ranging interests - and strong opinions. In this very interesting 30 minute video he looks in an entertaining way at the development of the scientific method starting back in the 17th century. He talks about his interest in backyard rocketry and then lets loose in the last 15 minutes at man made Global Warming. Use the slider to go straight to minute 15 if you don't want to watch the whole video but I do recommend the whole video for context.
Kary sure doesn't muck around. He talks about scientists who are not honest and the IPCC. He says the whole global warming theory is trash. So much for there being no debate and the science being settled.
