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.

“We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy,”

Climate alarmists are convinced extreme weather is increasing and out of control, due to a 0.0001 mole fraction increase in a harmless, essential trace gas. They call this “mainstream science.”
In fact, the US is having the least extreme summer on record. The number of record daily summer temperatures (maximums and minimums) is at an all time record low.
The number of all time maximum summer temperatures is also at a record low, at zero.
The number of record daily temperatures is seventh lowest on record
Summer afternoon temperatures this year have been average, and have been declining for over a century.
The frequency of hot summer days has been 44th lowest on record, and declining for over a century.
US Tornado count has been lowest on record, and there have been no hurricanes striking the US. By this date in 1886, the US had already been hot by four hurricanes,
Fire burn acreage is down 90% since the 1930’s and 41st lowest on record (so far) since 1926.
If mainstream science ignores actual data and reports the exact opposite of reality, then they have become nothing more than the Big Lie. President Eisenhower warned about this.
