    The laws of physics are set permanently.
    Science can only explain what is existing naturally, but can never explain "why" it exists this way.

    Can you explain why science works so well?

    Science explains how, based on evidence, and evidence is based on precision or accuracy of your measurement instrument.
    Hypothesis comes first, and evidence is used to test the hypothesis.
    If evidence disproves the hypothesis, then a revised hypothesis must be produced.
    Science also can have pre-conception, scientists can choose to pick evidence that fit their hypothesis and ignore other evidence that disprove their hypothesis.

    For example, even though most scientists blame global warming on burning of fossil fuel, but there are also scientists who said it is not relevant,
    and so Trump said that global warming is a hoax.

    Actually, it can work either way around. Sometimes a new hypothesis is needed to explain evidence; sometimes new evidence is needed to test a hypothesis.

    No!

    Ideally, scientists should try their best to disprove their own hypotheses by all possible means. Because, as Feynman said, the easiest person to fool is yourself. There's nothing more embarrassing to a scientist than having to retract a finding because it has been disproven by somebody else who collected evidence that the original scientist was unaware of, or ignored, or chose not to collect.

    Trump doesn't appear to be too hot when it comes to his knowledge or understanding of science.

    How could burning fossil fuels not be relevant to global warming? Burning fossil fuels creates carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, which can only drive warming. The argument is very simple to understand.
