Corruption of Climate Science Has Created 30 Lost Years

by Dr. Tim Ball on May 5, 2011

Traditionally, the older scientists held to the prevailing wisdom and were challenged by the new, skeptical graduates looking for wider answers. In climatology, the opposite has happened. The so-called skeptics challenging the prevailing wisdom are the professors who have researched and taught the subject for 30 years or longer. Their knowledge is much wider than that of the new young scientists because climate science has stagnated for thirty years. All the funding was directed to only one side of climate science, and that was the side promoted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and accepted as the ‘official science’ by governments.

It’s now frightening how little climate science is known by both sides of the debate on human causation of global warming. I wrote this sentence before I saw a paper from Michigan State University that found,

Most college students in the United States do not grasp the scientific basis of the carbon cycle – an essential skill in understanding the causes and consequences of climate change.

The professor says students need to know because they must deal with the buildup of CO2 causing climate change. This discloses his ignorance about the science of the carbon cycle and the role of CO2 in climate. It’s not surprising, and caused by three major factors: a function of the emotional, irrational, religious approach to environmentalism; the takeover of climate science for a political agenda; and funding directed to prove the political, rather than the scientific, agenda.

The dogmatism of politics and religion combined to suppress openness of ideas and the advance of knowledge critical to science.

One Response to Corruption of Climate Science Has Created 30 Lost Years

  1. Neil Craig says:

    I entirely agree. On the related subject of nuclear power we have also lost 40 years of development (which at the rate of growth then woyuld mean humanity could have had 2.4 times more electricity and be at least twice as well off). In both casesthe cause is political & government control of “research” money being used to promote the official scare story. “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” Henry Louis Mencken

    The answer is that government research money should be paid purely for results (eg X-Prizes) rather than being handed to politically approved “researchers”.
