  •  Epistemic Dysfunction (6+ / 0-)
    People are educated, trained, to think you add one to one and you get two.  Complex Systems don't work that way.  You add one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one and one and you get something completely different.  

    Also the IPCC didn't help when they went around claiming all these Bad Things were going to be happening in far away in time, far enough away not to worry anybody.  Complex Systems don't work that way, either.  When they finally gets to moving they moves Real Quick.  

    Finally, I am willing to bet your friends and neighbors haven't a clue about what has been going on in Complex Systems, bifurcation mathematics, Non-Linear Dynamics & all the rest of it and I hasten to add there's no reason they should.  And if the research and experimental results from the foregoing are not known and added to one's mental model what is going on is simply bewildering.
