Here in the Real World, Science is a Workhorse, not a Fetish

Another day brings more exposure of the scientific fudgery by the East Anglia gang...

David Holland, a private citizen with an electrical engineering degree, has been filing Freedom of Information requests, and the East Anglia gangsters have been violating the law by snubbing him.  They've also been hiding or destroying data, which is really illegal. (Source:  Telegraph)
A grandfather with a training in electrical engineering dating back more than 40 years emerged from the leaked emails as a leading climate sceptic trying to bring down the scientific establishment on global warming.

David Holland, who describes himself as a David taking on the Goliath that is the prevailing scientific consensus, is seeking prosecutions against some of Britain's most eminent academics for allegedly holding back information in breach of disclosure laws.
How did these ivory tower "scientists" view Mr. Holland's requests?
In one email dated May 28, 2008, one academic writes to a colleague having received Mr Holland's request: "Oh MAN! Will this crap ever end??"
Mr. Holland, with his humble bachelors degree and 40 years of real-world experience, has a better understanding of scientific methods than these charlatans do:
"These guys called climate scientists have not done any more physics or chemistry than I did. A lifetime in engineering gives you a very good antenna.

It also cures people of any self belief they cannot be wrong. You clear up a lot of messes during a lifetime in engineering.

I could be wrong on global warming – I know that – but the guys on the other side don't believe they can ever be wrong."
How true.  In the real world, you solve real problems--or you don't.  In the rarefied air of theoretical academe, you spin tales for your financial benefactors, especially when they are guilty, rich Westerners with a science fetish:

Himalaya Glaciers Melting?  Follow the money!
It can be revealed that The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), whose director is Rajendra Pachauri, the chair of the IPCC, was awarded a portion of two grants, which were worth a total of almost £3 million for research on the glaciers after the inaccurate claims were published. (Telegraph)
This is why free speech is so important.

No not until the cows come home now as we have this Climate sham on the run and crumbling like Obama's birth tale finally will as the pressure mounts.

Anyone who profited starting with Gore should be hauled in and prosecuted for the biggest conspiracy ever perpetrated on civilization since.....Obama himself.

You would think that after all of the snow storms that they would retract their grave error on global warming and apologize for freaking out the people.

Good grief!

Silverfiddle said...

They will never apologize Leticia! They may complete the circle again and try to scare us with talk of a new ice age...

This is a scam Ray. To think they tried to fleece us for trillions. They should be locked up for criminal insanity.

Most Rev. Gregori said...

Silverfiddle is correct, there will be NO apologies forthcoming. After all, "Why let a good crisis (manufactured or otherwise) go to waste?"

It is so sad that there are so many people out there who are so easily conned and frightened.
