The other day Hal had a real good post up about how, yet again, liberal social science types – talk about an oxymoron – had found that conservatives hated science, proving how dumb they are. Of course the devil was in the unreported/hidden details. What conservatives objected to wasn’t science, but how politicized so many people claiming to be doing science, but really doing nothing of the sort, were, but considering the source and the narrative, you would never, ever find that out either from the social science types behind this survey or the LSM. Of course the comments, despite Hal’s best efforts, devolved into an argument about AGW, which for conservatives is the de facto proof of why they distrust the so called scientific community peddling this nonsense.
Like Hal, I was hoping to avoid this post resulting in the same rehash of the same tired arguments, but the fact is that, this story, dealing with scientists at NASA finally getting tired of the cultists leading the AGW collectivist agenda and their shenanigans, actually serves to up my credence of the members of the scientific community, and hence is relevant.
Basically we have people that want the scientific process to actually be allowed to work, and to let the truth come out for a change pointing out that relying solely on blatantly false and unscientific models, rather than the empirical data – you know the stuff that the AGW cultists conveniently
destroyed misplaced – is not just bad practice but unscientific. We can rehash the argument about how loaded with crap these models are, with the same people coming to the defense of the indefensible, but I do not even want to bother. The fact is the empirical data wouldn’t be so easy to rig, unless they engage in the massive massaging of cherry picked pieces of said data, like we found out they did after the East Anglia revelations, and then destroyed the data, yet again, to prevent people from understanding what a crime they committed.
I also do not think it is a coincidence, and very relevant, that the people behind this letter are former NASA scientists. They are likely retired older people from back in the day, where/when they took scientific work seriously, and would have had a huge problem with the politicized bullshit the left pushes as science these days, and/or people that left or where removed from NASA for not toeing the political line. I am sure the MSM will do its best to not report any of this controversial news – I looked but found nothing – and if NASA holds true to form, they will ignore or give lip service and not much else to this request. After all, the money is there for those that give big government what they want, and what they want is the narrative that lets them push the “man made” nonsense their new world order and tax schemes are predicated on.
Still, it does show some scientists, even if they are old, take science seriously. Hopefully we get a lot more of this too. It would help to make people resort to well informed decisions and enhance the trust that is sorely lacking in the block of politicized left leaning community that pretends they are scientist like those beholden to the church of AGW.
