global average tempertaure
it is composed of:
ocean surface tempertature [g.a.]
land surface temperature [g.a.]

"The area of the oceans remains cooler, than over land,
in a scenario [projection/simulation] where we have a global average temperature rise of eg. 4 degrees C, most land areas have warmed by more than 6 degrees C."

Philosophy of Science ++

the strategies the science community uses to achieve to work together on one common goal [over such a long period of time].
The "rules" that define the society of science.
_there is a TRUTH out there, wit a capital T and we try to find it [06:00]
strategies to most successfully ectract the truth:

_be honest with yourself and with others [11:20]

_it doesn't matter who you are, only the content of your ideas are relevant [12:20]

_In Science we have heros not prophets [Steve Weinberg] [13:50]

_We are never in the posession of the whole truth, and never pretend to have complete certainty [14:30]

_we do the best we can and boldly extrapolate ideas we have most confidence in. [15:00]

_be tolerant to other peoples ideas, keep an open mind[15:40]

_it is necessary to be Intolerant + harshly judgemental of ideas that are not perfectly honest, intelectually lazy [especially your own] [16:40]
Erich Fromm
a German social psychologist, psychoanalyst, sociologist, humanistic philosopher.
[books:The Art of Loving,...check it out!]
“A technological civilization is programmed by the principal that something ought to be done if it is technologically possible.
If it is possible to make nuclear weapons, they must be built even if they destroy us all.”

4_4    power
Hannah Arendt
[1906 - 1975] German-born, American political theorist.
topics ranging from totalitarianism to epistemology, had a lasting influence on political philosophy

Persecution of powerless or power-losing groups may not be a very pleasant spectacle, but it does not spring from human meanness alone. 

What makes men obey or tolerate real power and, on the other hand, hate people who have wealth without power, is the rational instinct that power has a certain function and is of some general use.
Even exploitation and oppression still make society work and establish some kind of order.

Only wealth without power or aloofness without a policy are felt to be parasitical, useless, revolting, because such conditions cut all the threads which tie men together.
Wealth which does not exploit lacks even the relationship which exists between exploiter and exploited; 
aloofness without policy does not imply even the minimum concern of the oppressor for the oppressed.
