Abstract

Science is “quantitative” and “qualitative.” The word and definition of “Science” comes from the Latin scientia, or “knowledge.” Science is a “systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.” As Prof Dan Kammen (PhD in Physics) explains, “scienceis the fact-based exploration of the function of the natural world.” Clark learned this from Professor Kammen (2006) when we were both working with the UN IPCC but also at University of California, Berkeley went and lectured in some of his classesas he formed the Renewable Energy Institute there in the late 1990s.
