Science Is The Only News That Matters

Spend your days with MSNBC or PBS or Fox droning on in the background about Trump and Clinton as you shower and shave and polish the silver? Edge replies, quite rightly: ‘Science is the only news. When you scan through a newspaper or magazine, all the human- interest stuff is the same old he-said-she-said, the politics and economics the same sorry cyclic dramas, the fashions a pathetic illusion of newness, and even the technology is predictable if you know the science. Human nature doesn’t change much; science does, and the change accrues, altering the world irreversibly.” We now live in a world in which the rate of change is the biggest change.” Science has thus become a big story, if not the big story: news that will stay news.’
