The Fiction of Climate Science

From Forbes Magazine.

"You can't blame these scientists for sucking up to the fed's mantra du jour. Scientists live off grants. Remember how Galileo recanted his preaching about the earth revolving around the sun? He, of course, was about to be barbecued by his leaders. Today's scientists merely lose their cash flow. Threats work."

I'm wondering WHAT ELSE we're blindly following that was spewed out by grant-hungry research groups, like medical researchers, legal researchers, industrial researchers, and worse--NASA. Is ALL the wool over our eyes, and are we REALLY living in a matrix fueled by colored pills?

How much else of our world is fiction?

Isn't it interesting how sufficient sums of money, and the potential to make huge amounts of MORE money, are enough to smooth things over and make the real (unsavory) world go away.

"Sadly, the public just learned that our scientific community hid data and censored critics. Maybe the feds should drop this crusade and focus on our health care crisis. They should, of course, ignore the life insurance statistics that show every class of American and both genders are living longer than ever. That's another inconvenient fact."
