lamest smoking gun ever
1500 pages and that's it?
This evidence of deception doesn't involving facts or figures, but the tone of an email?
Followed by a full page presupposing the motivations of scientists...sorry, to use your comedy scare quotes correctly: "climate scientists"
If the motivation of scientists invalidates their research and its conclusion...why didn't you apply this logic to that Channel 4 documentary a couple of years ago?
You know the one which dismissed climate change, by scientists who weren't actually experts in the fields and were in the pay of the oil industry?
Pre-supposes the conclusions of the investigation rather!
Re: governments looking for "a quick issue to deal with"
Yeah, 'cos long term sustainability strategy is a quick issue for any government deal with; and with publicised effect on short term economic development they really want to jump on such a bandwagon unnecessarily!! Suggesting that climate science is done at the behest of government doesn't make sense; the greens aren't in government.
Re: "The scientists may say they are merely feeding a demand"
Conjecture; they "may say" a lot of things. Did they say it?
Re: "evidence to the contrary is shunned, and scientists who advance it ostracized or smeared."
Supposition. Contrary example; reaction to and continued investigation of FTL neutrinos.
If the inference is that climate change detractors are being unfairly shunned, at least get the balls to state it openly along with supporting, what do they call it now... evidence.
Oh, and that's the opposite of your MMR analogy (where that particular BS was correctly debunked by the scientific community at large).
A lack of expertise doesn't encumbered the author... so why isn't he commenting on the data itself?
Surely not because the latest meta-studies (even the those sponsored by oil magnates) have unequivocally stated that this is happening?
If the results are bogus, then the only way to prove this is research showing that it's bogus.
-That's how science works.
Your "Analysis" suggesting that some comparatively poorly paid scientists are in the pocket of governments (who don't even want to take their advice)!
-That's how gossip works.
