"Scientific consensus" reduced to a game of chinese whispers over the telephone.
This isn't just about global warming.
Just like the Depression isn't about a few bad loans.
This is evidence of a worldwide descent into a madhouse planet of gibbering Jerry Lewis style morons. It isn't just one field or discipline. The truth is, incompetent people have seized the institutions of the Western world and are busy running them all into the ground.
I predict that orthodox science will never recover fully from this scandal. Never, at least not in our lifetimes. Never again will people invest much trust in it.
Thanks, bolshevists. There's another notch in your belt for something else you ruined. You must be so proud to have amassed such an amazing record of successful demolitions. Music, art, literature, cinema, debate, business, religion and now science. All in the crapper and permanently discredited as garbage. Another profession that decent people avoid for fear of being associated with rough trade.
There's no place left in this world for good men except to retreat and tend to their own private gardens.
This story will end when the good guys in this tug-of-war simply let go of the rope and give up. Without their service as suckers to this regime, there isn't enough tangible and intangible capital in the system to keep it going. The whole civilization nowadays is mostly camp followers with a handful of straight men who play by the rules. This is coming to an end because there is nobody left who has any faith in the system or a stake in it's continued success.
What we are seeing is the final wild looting rampage in which anything left that can burn is thrown into the fire or dragged away to sell.
