knowledge gap

According to an article in the NY TIMES:

Almost a third of ordinary Americans say human beings have existed in their current form since the beginning of time, a view held by only 2 percent of the scientists. Only about half of the public agrees that people are behind climate change, and 11 percent does not believe there is any warming at all.

That’s pretty scary.  Obviously scientists – and artists – need to work harder to raise the bar a little bit.

  1. Aren’t only something like a quarter of American adults college-educated? Doesn’t that pretty much tell us all we need to know?
