FORMER CLIMATE CHANGE SKEPTIC NOW AGREES CLIMATE CHANGE IS MAN MADE!
Makes you wonder what does this have to do with this blog. For starters, this is all about TRUTH, EVOLUTION and EMPOWERMENT. If you don't know the TRUTH, it is harder to improve (EVOLVE), if your facts are wrong or you haven't improved, then you are less able to execute something. Something could be as simple as carrying your luggage to the airport (strength, fitness), paying for your vacation (financial), or simply curing your flu (medical information).
The evolution in the above mentioned instances can be described as "more strength/fitness means you can carry more luggage or have an easier time bringing it around with less problems", "more money means it is easier to pay for your vacation, prolong your vacation, less requirement to scrimp", "more TRUE health information means you are able to treat more diseases more easily so that it wont ruin your vacation, work schedule, dates and sex life..". MORE means better.
Going back to the link and subject above, the scientist involved was a skeptic of Global Warming being Man Made. It is good that he didn't let pride prevent him from discovering the truth. Many people refuse to see the truth because of pride. They would rather live in their illusion. They would rather insist on being wrong than admit to others or themselves that they are wrong.
Ergo, they become less evolved, less empowered because they refused the truth. Because of PRIDE.
