Why are people still skeptical about climate change
the politicians who are "skeptical" arent really skeptical. they have an audience/voter to cater to. those voters and their communities are the ones involved in and have jobs in oil, coal and natural gas; all the white trash hillbilly white folk who are retardicans. they have to take the opposing side to stay in power.
>Nobody important actually disagrees with me, they're just pretending to.
Pretty sure Cruz and others truly do not believe it.
To be honest I don't think it's as alarming an issue as it was talked about. Warming hasn't been occurring at the rate scientists were once predicting. Not even close to it.
Because of family stuff I've had to delay my schooling/college for about a year extra - which isn't too bad. I'm pulling into a spring semester course at the local community college to clear up some transcript errors before applying to a real university, the only problem I'm facing is my major.
I'm going to into biomechatronics, but there's no real set course or degree for it - what's the best way to figure out what exactly to take for it? A few people who are top in the industry study stuff like biophysics, and a...

The only thing I want to do with my life is perform medical research. I'm really trying /sci/ but I only ever scrape by on theory exams. What am I even working towards, no grad school will ever accept me to carry out research with average grades. I know something has to change but I feel like I have tried everything. How am I supposed to know if I'm not wired for this?
what mw does my laser have to be in order to burn stuff
Why do most scientists don't care about politics or are just left wing because that whats cool now?I understand that they love science and might think politics don't matter have time but with the rising of the left and everything being censored because it hurts their feeling soon the only scientists will be the one who go into in women's studies,african-american studies and fat studies
OP's a colossal faggot but colleges ARE getting kind of crazy with safe-space and appropriation bullshit.
STEM professors at yale got called 'out of touch' and 'disjointed from reality' for showing support for the professor who said that people should be allowed to wear halloween costumes and free debate should be encouraged
What classes must one pass before posting on /sci/?
The ln term is just 1 (inside is the definition e)
the sin^2 term is 1
not sure about the sum, but I'm willing to bet the cosh shit reduces to 1 as well and the sum then is 2, so you get 2=2
Is medicine a meme degree?
No. It's a really important degree. Honestly, there is no such thing as "meme degree" unless we are talking about really absurd ones like women studies. Just study whatever you enjoy.
Let's talk about Inter-universal Teichmüller theory. Oh wait...
In order to view my math final exam grade via an excel spreadsheet my professor is putting together, and to avoid other students knowing each others scores, we are choosing code names which will be used for viewing grades.
what should my "codename" be for my math final?
the dude has a sense of humor, but has asked that the name not be crude, vulgar, or inappropriate. I leave for my final in 25 minutes. the answer with the most replies will be the name I use.
If it helps you decide, I will most likely get an A.
Should I try to re-learn all of algebra/precalculus within the next 4 weeks so that I can place into calculus and all of the classes that require me to concurrently take calculus, or should I play it safe, staying one year behind and take college algebra and not be able to take calculus until next fall? Is it possible to re-learn everything up to calculus within 4 weeks using something like khanacademy?
Im studying in biotechnology.
Basicly comps. Sci + biology
I rate myslef 10/10
Is there a /sci/entific way to get rid of my suicidal thoughts?
I've been feeling like shit for months and I don't know what to do
If you want to get rid of them, you're not really depressed yet. This is only the beginning. After a few months/years of more suffering you will embrace suicidal thoughts. They will become stronger and your entire life will revolve around finally gathering the courage to do it. At least that's how it works for me. Been in therapy and taking meds. Still more and more convinced I'm gonna kill myself after finishing university.
What, physically, are you calculating when you're solving a contour integral?
I was going to post a snarky reply but I stopped when I couldn't actually get an answer. The way I understand it is that contour integration is just one of (infinitely) many ways to compute the closed integral between two points where regular integration only allows one.
here lads, what ever happened to Lockheed Martin's idea for a compact fusion reactor?
The SL-1 accident happened and the army didn't want anything to do with nuclear reactors anymore. Regardless if Lockheed actually got anywhere, it would likely be kept secret. The only people who could possibly afford a compact (ie can fit inside an intermodal container) nuclear reactor is the military.
"Big oil" had nothing to do with it. The oil lobby doesn't give a shit about compact reactors given that it won't...
