The Sound Of Weaponized Science

| 5 Comments

Dr.Susan Crockford;

Today I sent a letter to the editors of the journal Bioscience requesting retraction of the shoddy and malicious paper by Harvey et al. (Internet blogs, polar bears, and climate-change denial by proxy) published online last week.

The letter reveals information about the workings of the polar bear expert inner circle not known before now, so grab your popcorn.

I like reading about the history of science. Personal attacks, character assassinations and weaponized science is nothing new in science. What's interesting is that the most viscious, even deadly, scientific controversies have strong political and religious components. When scientific theories involve power structures and money they get incredibly ugly. Heretics threatening the establishment must be eliminated. Whenever opposing scientists are threatened with professional exile, jail or death, you've got religion and politics not science. It's also interesting to look at who ends up being correct.

I found it amusing that the paper attacking Crockford chastises her for not doing field work. Climate science future forecasting, especially CAGW, is unverifiable models all the way down. It's basically Advanced Augury for political scientist but with more uncertainties and fudge factors than reading sheep entrails.

" It's basically Advanced Augury for political scientist but with more uncertainties and fudge factors than reading sheep entrails."

When in doubt, go with the sheep.
They are difficult to edit, or "adjust".....

I find it amusing whenever the CAGW’s claim that a “denier” is being “paid” by “Big Oil” ... or The Heartland Institute ... or any such ridiculous attempts to smear, and diminish the TRUTH being published. Guess what!? Everyone works for $$. Why is there no outcry when eco-extremist-billionaire Tom Steyer funds pro-Global Warmist propaganda ? Or leftist governments (like the USA and Canada), or any one of the thousands of Environmental “charitable” Foundations ??

If you think the Heatland Institute is biased ... then you should acknowledge that they are overwhelmingly OUTNUMBERED by so-called Environmental Groups. The pro-Global Warmist (read: Socialist) propaganda has a massive $$$$ advantage over the voices of reason ... and science.

Susan is doing us all a great service.

Off topic.

POLL SPOTTING
Do you agree with the NEB's controversial approval of Kinder Morgan's request to bypass Burnaby laws to build a pipeline?

Might post again in tops later tonight.

When truth contradicts the narrative, the statists gleefully and shrilly follow the narrative. Why?

Because if "we" aren't threatening the polar bears, they don't need our help. If humans aren't threatened by the various political hobgoblins, the latest being human induced global warming, who needs these establishment geeks and their phony baloney jobs and their parasitic attitudes?

If their mendacity were outed, they would have to get real jobs like the rest of us. The truth hurts them. Con artists react violently when outed.

The false narratives of the progressive alt-statists are coming apart one by one - the wisdom of throwing money at issues; human induced global warming with which the earth and the polar bears are not cooperating; and the new hoisted on their own petard du jour, leftists respect women.

I personally think the herd instinct is kicking in as people sense without even realizing it that leaner, meaner times await, so extravagance addicted and entitled statists must be weaned off government sacking of the treasury. The entitlists, not living in the real world, will be the last to realize this, but the first to be the object of public outrage at learning facts they were already aware of, aka the Lance Armstrong effect.

Terence Corcoran weighs in:

"Climate scientists in the Amstrup/Mann/Lewandowsky camp have apparently had enough of Crockford’s steady debunking of many of their polar bear alarmist claims and have set out to destroy her and her reputation via what can only be called a vicious personal attack."

So here’s the summary of this so-called science paper: We compare the blogs that agree with us on polar bears with blogs that don’t. We label those that don’t agree with us “deniers” and smear one of the scientists whose work is cited on those denier sites."

If this is science, we are all doomed. Out on the ice, the polar bears seem to be safe for now. But it’s us humans who are at risk of succumbing to the malicious catechism of the high priests of climate change."
