Will I ever be a scientist or atleast do something with a Physics PHD?

Hello all. I've been pretty die hard on being a scientist. iIve researched lots and lots of advise but it only leaves me wanting and needing more. A part of me tells me I will, because I have drive and determination. I'm not interested in that string theory craziness. In fact I have a strong interests in things such as alternative energies, advanced materials, conductors and etc. I want to pursue my PASSION. I love math and i love physics so i REALLY want to get a Physics PHD. I am a high school student at current. But I've done my research and remain some what unwaivered. Thesis work and living breathing and eating a PHD is nothing that I fear. I want to do RESEARCH and DEVELOPMENT. and Academia I do not want to do.
I've made plans like PHD then industry or PHD then Air force scientist officer. But what are the hopes of me becoming a RND Scientists(physics) in industry?
Will the future continue to get bleaker and bleaker? Will I have to do the "Engineering" degree that may never satisfy my need to learn and advance my skills?

My brother is a science PhD (he did physics as an undergrad, meteorology for his PhD) and works in research, not in academia. He's very happy with what he does (and cannot understand why I am a college professor instead of working in a research institute as well!)
Seriously, the majority of PhDs seem to want to go into academia - teach in a university and do research - so the fact that you do NOT want to do that may give you an edge. In today's high tech world, there will almost certainly continue to be industrial opportunities for scientists focusing on R&D.
I will point out that you are still in high school and have a long way to go before you will earn that PhD. Probably at least six to eight years (depending on many years of high school you have left). The economic situation and employment options may have changed significantly by then. But I think you'll be safe from the dreaded engineering degree.

Originally Answered: Most popular scientist of the past were christian, do todays scientist need to be more open about their belief?
Yes, today's scientists who follow Christ need to speak out more in defense of Christian views and about the scientific findings that support Christianity.
Scientists are all too human. They believe passionately in their hypotheses, and they hate to see them falsified. When theories they've backed are shot down by contrary evidence, they may lose academic reputation, promotions, and grant money. It takes courage to be an honest scientist.
Today, no matter how overwhelming the evidence, scientists will be punished for saying that the climate is not warming, that Darwinism is not supported by the Cambrian fossils, or that homosexuality is not predestined and immutable. Scientists doing actual science may not get tenure, promotion, or grants for telling the truth about scientific findings.
Sounds like a good plan - far more grad students want to stay in academia than there are jobs for us. It's great you actually want to go into industry. Sure, you can definitely get a PhD - it takes time, motivation, and some talent at math, and it sounds like you've got all that. Spend your summers in college doing research projects with professors to get a feel for which fields you're most interested in and to get some experience for grad school. There are many applications for a physics PhD in research and development.

First of all RELAX.
I know and understand how you feel.Im a college student right now and l have been dealing with a lot of majors cause l cant decide what l want to be.Im still looking at that and omg its so hard.I dont want to later regret the major l got.
So as of right now lm doing just my general ed. and then lma decide what l want to be.Its also hard for me to decide because l want to transfer to a Cal state so cant wait for that.
Just do what lm doing and talk to a counselor once you start college it is reallly going to help you a lot.They willl make you an Ed plan and telll you what classes you have to take.

Nope, you're no longer the Lone Ranger! i do no longer the two. yet what I do have is greater effectual than each and all of the PhD's which will ever exist. i'm constantly turning out to be in God's understanding ... is there everybody who can boast approximately being smarter than God? Prov. 3:7-18 7 don't be smart on your person eyes; concern the Lord and leave from evil. 8 it particularly is going to be wellbeing on your flesh, And power on your bones. 9 Honor the Lord along with your possessions, And with the firstfruits of all your strengthen; 10 So your barns would be crammed with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine. 11 My son, do no longer despise the chastening of the Lord, Nor loathe His correction; 12 For whom the Lord loves He corrects, in basic terms as a father the son in whom he delights. 13 chuffed is the guy who famous understanding, And the guy who helpful factors information; 14 For "her" (understanding) proceeds are greater proper than the salary of silver, And her benefit than advantageous gold. 15 She is greater effectual than rubies, And each and all of the flaws you may want won't be able to evaluate together with her. sixteen length of days is in her precise hand, In her left hand riches and honor. 17 Her techniques are techniques of pleasantness, And all her paths are peace. 18 She is a tree of existence to those that grab her, And chuffed are all who keep her.

Originally Answered: Are global warming scientist a special brand of scientist?
"Climate Science" would be a non-issue if Great Britain's Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher hadn't offered The Royal Society money for proving CO2 was causing Global Warming. This is how the IP CC was established and has always been a political organization and an extension of the United Nations (which is just another political organization seeking power over the populace). There was a clear political objective when this offer was made and this objective remains the same today.
In short, Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming scientists are nothing but political and environmental activists, especially if their goal is to help mitigate something that is a non-issue and is admittedly something that is barely understood.
