Since my mind is like a steel sieve…
I was listening to that interview, I’m thinking, on NPR, but it was some time ago. So, I would completely understand if one doesn’t put much stock into what I’ve related.
But to continue. I was listening (yes again) to a professor giving testimony before a congressional committee. He mentioned that they had used the software that is being currently being used to predict the climate. Of course, this computer model is saying that the climate, by the end of the century, will be several degrees warmer. They had put in data for the last many decades and then tried to see how it would predict what the climate would be today. It predicted that it would be significantly warmer than it is today. Again, there is no evidence that this software was corrected after fraudulent code was found in it, data that was arbitrarily inserted as code that would affect the outcome.One never heard of efforts being made to correct the software after this demonstration of its error. Nope, nothing to see here. But yet its predictions are still being used. Science?
It has been mentioned that research behind papers published that are critical are funded by special interests of the status quo. I don’t doubt it. But, the question in my mind is, since the boards approving papers for publication are very biased, are they making sure that only paper critical that gets publish are these ones, thus bringing into question any critical view?
I remember some forty years ago, there were climate scientists that were saying that the earth was heading towards another ice age. My reaction was, and you may want to sit down for this for it is quite shocking, skeptical.
What I wish, since I do love science, is that all research would have been done quietly and objectively. Maybe the politicians wouldn’t have noticed until honest results would be published, whatever those results would be. From what I see, the whole “science” that is behind, what has become an obvious agenda of greed and power, is completely lacking integrity. They have, for me, lost all credibility. And that makes me sad. And irritated.
