“Science is not the enemy of the planet”
“I try to use it in support of science, for example I try to explain that science is not the enemy of the planet, but that the concern of saving the planet is that they will get there by doing science and relying on science.said the 75-year-old professor.
“There are some activist groups that seem to me to be on the wrong track by saying that if the planet is going bad it’s science’s fault.“, rated by the faculty of the Polytechnic and the University of Paris-Saclay. “I think what people do in science is wrong. Science itself does not exist. If we don’t understand the science, we can’t solve the problem“, he continued.
Not wanting to specifically cite groups, the French Nobel condemned “An anti-scientific speechIt is in saying “this”.It would be great to get back to normal“.
