Irrational Fear is very prevalent in today's society, even though it’s usually not supported by scientific data. My name is Dr. Matthew Wielicki and I am an expert in earth science with a Ph.D. from UCLA and a professor-in-exile. Members of the scientific community routinely discuss the negative effects of irrational fear but dare not speak out lest they lose their positions and research funds. Subscribe to this substack to get up-to-date information that counters the irrational fears of climate change, culture, and politics. Thank you for your support.
