Are the scientists in on a grand conspiracy?

Do the scientists know that they are lying?

Is the goal of the lying to get grants, award$, tenure, and prestige? Are they being bribed to lie?



Still don't know if they are being bribed to lie, but they seem to threaten any of their own who do not go with the program.

Well, it was a french foreign minister who said that, not a scientist. The truth is likely somewhere in between what both extremes are saying.

You could of course read the other side of the story from the Guardian.

Quote: Bengtsson
Bengtsson said in a statement late on Friday: "I do not believe there is any systematic 'cover-up' of scientific evidence on climate change or that academics' work is being 'deliberately suppressed', as the Times front page suggests. I am worried by a wider trend that science is gradually being influenced by political views. Policy decisions need to be based on solid fact. I was concerned that the Environmental Research Letters reviewer's comments suggested his or her opinion was not objective or based on an unbiased assessment of the scientific evidence."


Nice try. Even the person whose paper was rejected is rejecting the Times' story.

The only reason GW is still around is there
are enough dopes in the world with access
to money that believe it. If there weren't,
it would have died long ago.

Sure, and if you were being bullied by a bunch of intolerant Warmers, you'd probably do the same.

Climate change = The weather

Warmers who complain about 'climate change' are basically complaining about the weather. *facepalm*

Good thing the world is broke, we'd be hearing about
this forever if it wasn't.

CA is forcing Fiat to lose $14,000 per car to meet electric car mandate.

Some days I almost can't wait for the Chinese to take over and straighten this nonsense out.
