There is an interesting article in the National Post today, which nicely summed up and exposed what happens when ideology, fraud and greed poses as science.
The difference between this case and Climate Science, the theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming or the “health” studies which suggest that coal fired electricity generation harms thousands of Ontario’s citizens each year and costs the health care system billions, is that politicians, ENGOs and investment bankers hadn’t all latched onto his findings as the new lever which would open the public purse for their benefit. The main stream media was just as complicit, uninformed and irresponsible in this case as with Climate Science, AGW and other “scientific” findings it trumpets at the behest of its owners and lobbyist friends.
Beware the “scientists” who won’t share their data or methods and whose findings cannot be reproduced. It is also interesting to see that, once again, statistics are implicated in the fraud.
Don’t believe everything you read, especially in the main stream media…
We wish you all a Happy New Year and better Government in 2012
