The Hidden Hand of Activism

" Unbiased scientific inquiry is not possible if the scientist has an agenda related to the research question in terms of his or her activism needs. In climate science the hidden hand of activism favors findings that support activism against fossil fuels. In this case, the researcher’s activism needs can be served with an excessive reliance on climate models that are programmed with the fossil fuel to CO2 emissions to rising atmospheric CO2 concentration to warming driven by way of climate sensitivity – that is the responsiveness of surface temperature to the logarithm of atmospheric CO2 concentration.

Once objective scientific inquiry is corrupted in this way, the role of observational data is to verify the models and not to challenge the models. ..........

Clutching at straws.

Science has never been entirely free of bias of the scientists and has sometimes held onto a false theory for a lengthy period. However, not all scientists have the same bias and truth, supported by the weight of evidence does eventually break through.

Scientists are not the only group who hold onto something against the evidence. Vested interests are way more guilty of that. Worse, they deny the evidence and do their best to hide it. Think James Hardy Industries and the tobacco industry. Always though, truth does prevail in the end.

I certainly have my fingers crossed .... but I think the horse has bolted as far as the CO2 scam is concerned. Shonky climate science has pervaded every aspect of daily life. Angry
