Scientific American: Scientists aren't more ethical, pure, & nobler than reg people

Postby kramer » Tue Oct 31, 2017 1:31 pm

This post is directed at those of you [Fordama comes to mind] who think scientists walk on water and who worship their every word:

If anyone thought scientists were somehow different from ordinary people —nobler, more ethical, more pure—then events over the past two years have been a sharp wake-up call. As with just about any area of human endeavor where men hold the lion’s share of power, the world of science and technology is plagued by sexual harassment.

In summary, scientists aren't 'better' than us regular folk and I've shown that they can lie, fudge, or alter their scientific data. Yet there are people here on this board who are frightened and terrified beyond belief [Fordama comes to mind] because of what many climate 'scientists' say about a little extra plant fertilizer in the air.

In addition, I've shown that sustainability is a socialist plan for the world (funded in part by the ultra leftist Rockefeller family) which means its being used as a trojan horse for political purposes.

Finally, I've shown using the latest data on plant fertilizer and temperature that there is virtually zero correlation between temperature and CO2 levels going back hundreds and hundreds of millions of years.

Bottom line: we should be a little cautious regarding the claims that we need massive life style changes to save the world from a future where the oceans have boiled away and flaming sulphuric acid is raining all over the world.

No ****, sherlock.

However they do have to follow protocols and have their work scrutinized, often by competitors. They have to continue to improve theories over time, and change them for new evidence. All knowledge is provisional, and action follows the best evidence.

But hey, when some loved one you know gets cancer, rush them down to the nearest shaman, as all those people who developed all that care down at the City of Hope used scientists doing science to come up with cures.

Love the hysterical "cancer" card... :D

Did you not understand the part where I said we should be a little careful when it comes to climate science?

Not hysterical, just true.

What's true is that we should question the claims by the 'authorities' on climate science instead of faithfully believing every word they preach as if they walk on water.

Scientists are constantly questioning.
