Environmental progress begins at the confluence of applied science and political science. The more we know about each one and the mixture the faster the progress.
In what ways do applied science and politics differ? What happens when they come together?
The two paths of endeavor diverge by as little as word meanings. The end results are amazingly far apart.
The life force of science and applied science (engineering) is defining terms with precision. Fixed meanings of words are drilled into students. Countless lessons focus on strict definitions.
“Pressure” means force per unit area, measured in pounds per square inch or the equivalent. Nothing more, nothing less.
The political world is different. The great difference is not merely that “pressure” has a different meaning. Rather it has a multiplicity of meanings.
“Pressure” means a host of things demanding attention. Or “pressure” means the burden of mental distress. Or “pressure” means to urge action that favors a certain interest. All meanings are in the dictionary.
