Thoughts on climate change

According to his father, Albert Einstein was supposed to be an engineer instead of a physicist. For much of his life, Einstein was even disappointed that his oldest son chose to be an engineer.

Einstein was shunned early in his career because he boldly challenged accepted wisdom.
