The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present — and is gravely to be regarded.
Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.
- President Eisenhower January 17, 1961
Pierre Gosselin wrote a piece about climate scientists who want to control policy, while not being accountable to policy makers. Gavin Schmidt wants to use his junk science to control policy, and says questions from policy makers are “tiresome.”
His predecessor, James Hansen, devoted his entire career to controlling policy through junk science and data tampering.
When data didn’t match his theory, Hansen simply changed the data.
Gavin tries make it sound like Katharine Hayhoe is a bystander, when in fact – like Hansen – she has devoted her career to controlling policy with her wildly fraudulent junk science.
The Midwest is having fewer hot days.
The Midwest is having more cold nights.
Ice melt was latest on record this year.
And then there is Gavin himself, who is a climate modeler and also generates the fake data he checks the models against.
Of course he doesn’t want people policing his fake data. Because it is fake.
Note that after 1998, the observations are likely to be below the simulated values, indicating that the simulation as a whole are predicting too much warming.
People like Gavin Schmidt and Katharine Hayhoe are exactly what President Eisenhower warned us about. Funding for their scams needs to be purged and policy needs to be controlled by policy makers who represent citizens – not snake oil saleswomen pretending to be scientists.
