Climate Change and the Death of Science

Climate Change and the Death of Science
Buy the Truth

Published October 31, 2009

EXCERPT:

What has become of science? We thought that science was about the pursuit of truth. Then we became perplexed at how quickly scientists have prostituted themselves in the service of political agendas. We have seen the unedifying spectacle of scientists refusing to share their data, fiddling their results, and resorting to ad hominem attacks on those who have exposed their work to be fraudulent. We have seen the Royal Society becoming a shamelessly crude advocacy society. We have seen President Obama choosing notorious climate alarmists and liars to be his personal advisors. We have seen the peer review process and journal editors colluding to prevent publication of results that do not serve the politically-correct agenda, and scientists refusing to consider results that demolish their pet theories. What is going on here?

Post-normal science is a dreaded development that needs to be stopped.

It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

–William O. Douglas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1952

RE: Climate Change and the Death of Science
Rather worse than politics I fear. This is an orchestrated attempt at global world control. I assume they, the UN and western governments, expect China to accept this takeover bid as it is already firmly communist.

I sense a feeling of panic as the UN and co drive up the schedule of global meetings to try and achieve accord but the climate itself is no longer cooperating.

I did not ask that question,the blogger I posted from did.

Here is the answer she wrote:

Quote:What is going on is that science is no longer what we thought it was. It is now a tool in the hands of socialists, and the smart money is flowing into the pockets of ‘scientists’ who will serve their agenda.

Yup it is politics for the purpose of control.

It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

They do not need the climate anymore,just enough pliant lemmings to establish control with.

The weak is always the first to be exploited when an authoritarian power has been established,yet it is often those very same victims who allow it to happen with their uncritical support.

Interesting post over at WUWT.

Conspiracy theorist or what!

This man is loosing control of his supposed intelligence. Why would the IPCC want to form a world government?

If the science of monkton fails then try the “theyre taking your freedom” tack.

Crazee!!

WHERE have you been for the last several years???

“No tin-foil hats needed. This is all happening right out in the open….

[T]he Commission on Global Governance, founded in 1992 at the suggestion of former West German Chancellor and socialist Willy Brandt. Maathai worked on the CGG alongside Maurice Strong, Jimmy Carter and Robert McNamara. The group’s manifesto, “Out Global Neighborhood,” calls for a dramatic reordering of the world’s political power – and redistribution of the world’s wealth…..” http://the-classic-liberal.com/maurice-strong/

RE: Climate Change and the Death of Science
Hi All,
I wonder if "we" here are all guilty of a bit of a "euro / USA" centric view.

Yes, Europe and USA (and Japan) have all drunk way too much "koolaide",
BUT,
the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, AND China - combined 40% of the world's economy) most definately have not.
NB - Paying occasional and appropriate lip service to the "green cause"
your "enemies" appear engaged upon towards their own self destruction is NOT the same thing as "drinking the koolaide".
- It is better described as obviously helping where and when possible to weaken the competition, so BRIC can benefit.

At a global scale this is becoming a more even "battle" as the USA / Europe is in economic decline,
and the BRIC countries go from strength to strength.

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

H. L. Mencken.

The hobgoblins have to be imaginary so that
"they" can offer their solutions, not THE solutions.

RE: Climate Change and the Death of Science
Over at Calder's Updates there is a disturbing essay

Wishful thinking, Czech style

it is heavy reading (for me) as I see parallels with current world events and the enforced doctrine of "anthropogenic global warming".

Intro:
Quote:Every since Thomas More invented the term, utopias have cast futures in a “normative” manner, saying here’s how the world ought to be. Such wishful thinking is political. The Marxist vision of a better world of true Communism, “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs,” led huge sections of the human species into the long dark tunnels of Stalinism and Maoism, where utopia was deferred indefinitely.
