Lost in Math: How Beauty Leads Physics Astray

1This book is a tour of the great and powerful theoretical physicists of our time and exposes the fundamental problem in physics today. Theoretical physicists now write fantasy instead of explaining data. They develop theories that cannot be proven. As Feynman said, if it doesn?t agree with data, it is wrong. I would add if it can?t satisfy the Popper falsifiable test, it is not science.

Rising: Dispatches from the New American Shore

4 How do you engage readers with a topic such as climate change? For me, almost all the books about climate change are so complicated and so politicized. The author, Ms. Rush, tells the true stories of individuals dealing with climate change on a day to day basis. She connects the dots and builds a compelling argument for us. After reading this book, I?m on board with her thinking.
