I recognize that this is a long piece, but I urge you to read through it in its entirety. The further down the post you go, the more terrified you’ll be for the state of climate science and public policy in general in re: publicly funded scientific research.
This is way…WAY worse than Climategate 1.0 – this is one of the ugliest sequences of misconduct and treachery that I’ve ever heard of in my life in science. We all recognize the peril when a private company bankrolls science and employs people who are involved in journal scholarship…how is this any different? Where does the money come from? The government. Who employs the journal editors and other bigwigs in climate science? The government. Who decides what information reaches the government and the media to inform policy? THE GOVERNMENT.
Don’t even ATTEMPT to pretend with me that these folks are impartial. Not after reading this. Not after see with my own eyes how precisely climate research has been so besotted with tyrannical oppression of opposing points of view.
This is an utter and complete disgrace.
