Albert Einstein famously quipped: "There are two things that are infinite: the universe, and human stupidity".

Thank you for reaffirming Einstein.

Since I'm such an idiot could you explain to this poor idiot why? Please.

Finally the adults who have taken Engineering 101 have started to step in and impose some reality checks on the lunacy of "alternative energy".

India has started to hold the wind power generators to account: http://www.bloomberg...face-fines.html

Also, to see how this affects us more closer to home: http://quixoteslasts...ere-in-ontario/

For those that still harbour illusions regarding the integrity of "science" and the credibility of those that self identify as scientists, this article in "Nature" should be of interest. The state of play in "science" has become so bad, and the corruption so extensive, that even scientists are openly ridiculing science.

When the argument gets too close for comfort, the charlitans of science usually refer to "peer review" as the final argument underpinning the supposed integrity of science. This article puts the nail into that coffin.

Used car salesmen and lawyers have real competion when facing "scientists".

I get your gist, canuck. In my layman mind, I understand and favor your points made. My science teacher wife/former research scientist and I have had long talks about this very subject, and her insight has enlightened my understanding about the natural cycle of the environment along with the corruption of blinded scienific ideals in many fields and education. Your communist and nazi parallels were dead on for me.

For those who still cling to the delusion that there is integrity in science, and that scientists should be afforded some kind of credibility beyond that offered to any other snake oil salesman, here is an article describing the latest scandal in "science".

 

The common refrain of the charlatan scientist is to refer to "peer review" as being the final and definitive arbiter of truth and credibility. As we know, this is the most common crutch leaned up by those frauds and other wise unemployable who call themselves "climate scientists". When challenged they invariably refer to their "peer reviewed" papers of to "established practice".

 

The Washington Post has a different persepctive:

Just think, less than a generation ago, science was a respectable profession; and scientists were looked at with awe. Kids wanted to grow up and be rocket scientists.

 

Now? I wouldn't let my daughter date one. I would rather she went out with a used car salesman. At last they are respectable thieves.

Here is a link to a very interesting article which goes a long way towards explaining why the village idiots and "climate scientists" are so taken with the religion of global warming.

But more particularly, it explains why the standards in science have plummeted to the extent that "science" and "scientists" have become a sad joke, and the object of much derision.

The article traces the development of "education" in our schools as it transformed from a tool which was aimed at imparting knowledge, and particularly the facility for independent and critical thinking, to what it is now.

Now it is a tool and means of social control. Specifically, it is aimed at conditioning the minds of people so that they will respond to events and circumstances in predictable and controllable ways.

This means that when a person is presented with a new idea, that person will always fall back on whatever their indoctrination has planted in their minds. New ideas will automatically be rejected. Old ideas, no matter how much they are disproved by observable evidence, will be adhered to.

By this means, order and stability in our society is maintained; only those ideas and forms of behavior that are acceptable within this indoctrinated framework will be followed.

In other words, under this process of indoctrination, everybody will be a good little robot. The robots will be trained from an early age.

This also explains why "science" has been replaced by doctrine; why social cohesion has been replaced by "multi-culturalism"; and why independent thought has been replaced by "political correctness".

Central to this is the religion of "climate science". It gives the people something to cling to; at the same time, it provides a predictable and controllable channel through which to direct their behavior and responses. While their behavior is channeled, they are no threat to the established order. While they can be controlled to react to "climate science", they will not be reacting to more significant issues. 

To watch the process in action watch the true believers react if their religion is criticized. Is their reaction one that is consistent with rational thought; or is it a reaction which is entirely predictable, and consistent with ideological indoctrination?

 

Does "climate science" have anything to do with climate; or is it just a red herring being used to deflect attention from other issues, and keep the people under control?

 

Read the article here; and then read some of the other articles written by the same author on her home page:
