Probably not in your lifetime, but there was a time when those of us who were interested in planetary and earth science thought scientists actually researched subjects without determining in advance what their conclusions would absolutely must be.
Research which heaped doubt on the rate of global warming was deliberately suppressed by scientists because it was “less than helpful” to their cause, it was claimed last night.
In an echo of the infamous “Climategate” scandal at the University of East Anglia, one of the world’s top academic journals rejected the work of five experts after a reviewer privately denounced it as “harmful”.
Scandalous, to be sure.
But in doing a little research of my own I was surprised to learn that scientists have always been big fat liars… much like Democrats. Which makes sense, since most of them are godless Democrats.
Here are a few scientific conclusions that scientists assured us in the past were settled fact.
Alchemy: For centuries, scientists were convinced that gold could be made from lead. Like yours truly, I’m sure you’ve figured out by now that you have to be Barack Obama, the settler of all scientific debate, before you can even convert your lazy lead ass into gold.
Earth is the Center of the Universe: For 1,000 years scientists sold us this nonsense spawned by Ptolemy in the second century. Today everyone knows that Planet Barry, the settler of all scientific debate, is the center of the universe.
DNA: Not Important: I know, huh? Even OJ’s jury couldn’t get their heads around this one in 1994. OJ is still looking for the Columbian drug dealers who butchered his ex-wife and a completely innocent bystander. Oh, and Second Chance Lance is buried somewhere in the L.A. legal labyrinth, judging kiddies court.
1970’s Global Cooling: Time devoted multiple covers to it. A new, maybe mini-, maybe larger, ice age was coming. The science was settled. Buy a heavy coat and screw PETA and Mary Tyler Moore.
The Flat Earth: Although most scientists had discarded the flat earth myth by Columbus’ time, many scientists still believed it was round like a disc, not a sphere. It was probably understandable though. Most of the scientist back then were either Italian, German or French, and they have always thought their $#!+ doesn’t stink.
Martian Canals: Throughout the nineteenth and much of the twentieth century scientists believed that a network of canals (some even said manmade) existed on Mars. They even provided the public with “detailed maps tracing their paths.” Of course they were wrong; Klingons were just drag racing their dune buggies.
Evolution: Piltdown Chicken: The dinosaur with bird feathers smuggled out of China in 1999 that finally established, once and for all, the “Missing Link,” you bible-thumping morons! It was a BIG hoax. In fact, no one has ever discovered a shred of evidence to support a missing link between any two species. The good news? Piltdown Chicken has no MSG.
So once again, “climate displacement” scientists have been cooking the books to support their manmade global warming myth. It’s no big deal; they might get lucky someday and stumble onto a fact or two that will prove beneficial to mankind.
In the meantime they will just distend their carbon footprints by flying off to the latest Al Gore revival meeting and applying for more multimillion-dollar government grants to justify their consumption of precious oxygen.
