Science – and who’s destroying the reputation of it..

Hint, it’s not the Republicans hindering science (albeit that seems to always be implied..). It’s the mono-cultural self-asserting bubble of academia.. which drives people to have confirmation bias and shoddy research. But there are good news, since it seems as if the next president tries to restore at least some sanity when it comes to the original tasks of government agencies job-description. Maybe the EPA stops focusing on a greenhouse gas plants need for growth and redoubles efforts when it comes to lead-contamination in the US (I know, one can dream).

NASA is returned to the original goal of space exploration.. and while the article clearly bemoans that.. it seems – to me –  that even before the new president takes office the good news are rolling in.. the 36% of man-made climate change believers in the science community might be sad (and who knows how many have succumbed peer pressure since 2013) to , but hopefully the others feel some more space and freedom to express their believes.. as peer pressure is reduced..and maybe even the NASA page corrects their statement about how many scientists really believe in man-made climate change. After all there are scientists that don’t want to be thrown into the political fray .. even if their association promotes a political agenda..

There’s a wonderful article out there – go and use the link – it’s worth your time – that actually very accurately describes, why the real destruction of scientific trust is wrecked by the “tolerant” left..

That’s the ultimate casualty in the Left’s war: scientists’ reputations. Bad research can be exposed and discarded, but bad reputations endure.

The above conclusion of the article is what I have felt in the community and in my personal life already more than once.. and while I aimed to push back it is hard to explain to people why so many statements of the press are wrong, and even worse, why so many of the “scientific” publications about climate or global-something out there are biased, questionable and with agenda.

I close with two of my favorite cartoonists pictures about global warming..

Even the EPA concedes that all changes they want (at 100’s of Billions of Tax-Dollar) would only result in 0.2 degree C change.. (i.e. within the inaccuracy of measurement…. !!)

What does (it) matter?

A line by now famous, the “what does it matter” should be applied to the many facets of ignoring the facts for “trumping” up phony stories.. (sorry, but could not resist..). Here are some random examples.. lot of links to read..

The Libertarian party is gonewelcome to the Democrats’ plantation. Almost all the principles the Libertarians were standing for are gone, too..

Gaffes are more important than actual facts or plans.. for the Libertarian party, for the Democrats, and for the Republicans.

Despite having had eight years of war mongering, destabilization of the Middle East and empowering the opponents of the US by the current administration, the inadept war hawk president wanabe Hillary is not called to it.. the Libyans could comment,.. or the Syrians, or the Israelis, … or just wiki…

the aftermath of the world-wide “Great Recession” of 2008 and the ensuing Eurozone crisis; the P5+1 dialogue with Iran; the widespread Arab Spring protests that toppled numerous governments in the Middle East and precipitated civil wars in Libya and Syria; the opening of new fronts in the “War on Terror” such as Mali and Yemen, and the growing and controversial role of drone aircraft in the conflict; attempts to negotiate free trade agreements in the Trans-Pacific and Transatlantic areas; the mass unauthorized publication of classified documents by WikiLeaks, as well as Edward Snowden‘s revelations of extensive government surveillance; the Russian invasion of Ukraine; and the return of US Forces to Iraq.

All this mess not her fault, or the presidents.. can’t be!

Tax-returns are “trumping” – see, I did it again..- 1000s of classified e-mails, which are read by 5 foreign governments and have been confidential – and department policies and laws were purposely violated.. but let’s attack the publisher (wikileaks) rather than the creator of these circumstances..

Violence from the right.. while we now find that violence is incited from the left, by agitators (see you tube) and most damage reported is to right leaning people (by left leaning “protestors”) – go to BING and search..
