The sciences of economics, ecology and climatology have a lot in common. These are studies of complex systems where it is difficult (if not impossible) to perform controlled experiments. They also all have a very problematic political component. Differing political factions are heavily invested in particular hypotheses that are not clearly provable.

What I find interesting is that so many of the people who favor drastic, intentional intervention in the sphere of one of these complex systems (economics) are terrified by the prospect of even unintentional effects of human activity in the others.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
