Astronaut bases scientific conclusions on perceptions and feelings.

With absolutely no measurements or scientific data, Canadian astronaut Bob Thirsk announced to the world that the Earth “bears scars” of human destruction.  Although he acknowledged this “perception” was probably wrong that didn’t stop him from feeling sad at witnessing the damage to the Earth visible only to him through his feelings. 

"This is probably just a perception, but I just have the feeling that the glaciers are melting, the snow capping the mountains is less than it was 12 years ago when I saw it last time," Thrisk said. "That saddens me a little bit."
