Scientists are only human

I have noticed signs around town listing vague feel-good statements, including “Science is real.” U.N. scientists, when tasked with determining the cause of “global warming,” were forbidden from considering any factor other than CO2. Once their computer projections (there were no actual experiments) conformed to the desired outcome, it was declared “settled.” This is not science.

Scientists are human; they can and will lie, cheat and steal. They can be greedy, short-sighted and egotistical. They can have an agenda. They crave acceptance and will go along with a (dubious) “consensus” to avoid being shunned and labeled a heretic.

Renegade researchers have found a definite link between solar activity and climate variation, and yet their findings are not published. Given the choice between a government grant and public shaming, there is little wonder why so many jump on the bandwagon. The scientists who are calling for a ban on plant food (CO2) are the same ones who in the ‘70s were calling for the ice caps to be covered with soot to stave off the coming ice age!

Scientists are not gods; let’s not make science a (false) religion.
