Will the overselling of climate change lead to a new scientific dark age? Thats the question being posed in the latest issue of an Australian literary journal, Quadrant, by Garth Paltridge, one of the worlds most respected atmospheric scientists.
Paltridge was a Chief Research Scientist with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO). The latter is Australias equivalent of the National Science Foundation, our massive Federal Laboratory network, and all the governmental agency science branches rolled into one.

An excellent question which really needed to be asked.
Our scientific establishment has become extremely political. Our education establishment is likewise.
America needs to somehow wrest back, leadership.
No, real science will continue to advance,
just politicized scientISM will be suppressed.
If you want to understand the agenda, it’s all here in one declarative sentence:
“Science proves the bible wrong.”
Totally irrelevant to the facts.
It is all about the liberal point of view. March in lock step with any liberal idea, and everything will be forgiven and forgot. Think not?
Do some research on ‘global cooling.’ Yes, the same fruitcake scientists that are now predicting global warning, 35 years ago predicted cars and greenhouse gasses would cause global cooling. Having a track record of ‘0’ means nothing if you will stay on the liberal line.
And when science is totally controlled by ideology, we are already in the “Scientific Dark Age.” The real question is “will we get out of the Scientific Dark Age before we f-up the world.
It already has.
Where will we get new scientists, when 99% of the schools and universities in this country “teach” the type of “science” used by global warming fanatics to “prove” their case?
We are already there.
Fake testing, “scientists” selling political views for ill gotten gain
Homeschooled children of conservative engineers... :)
Science is stronger than ever - incredible developments in medicine, computer technology, applied chemistry and the like continue apace.
It’s the public perception of science that will take a hit. And that may be a good thing - because of the technical achievements of the last century, more and more people came to confuse scientific knowledge with general wisdom. And like actors who are great at their craft but have their heads wedged in a familiar orifice when it comes to other things, there are lots of scientists who can master esoteric fields, but are absolutely clueless when it comes to politics or culture.
Lead to? It’s a sign that we’re already there. AGW is just another pagan religion.
I hope so.
This happened during the Clinton administration. They changed funding criteria for the explicit pursuit of political agendas (reported in Science magazine). The Bush administration never changed it back. When science changed from understanding physical reality to pursuing agendas, it was the beginning of the end. The public was bound to notice eventually.
Heck, we’ve got the EPA - that motley collection of general science major D students.
And glow-bull “warming” is just another layer of stinky, smelly, septic libstuff (with flies included at no extra cost).
Thank G*d for the second ammendment.
Unfortunately most of the research comes directly from universities and they have been taken over long ago by the alarmists.(leftists)
We can all be glad the kooks didn’t freak out back when the world first started warming up from the last ice age. Everyone assumed warmer weather was a good thing. At least it felt better on frost bite.
Does anyone here really believe the lib/left/socialist/dims would ever STOP coming up with Krazy Krap in an effort to advance their agenda?
The answer to both questions is No. Science will continue unabated.
But, will it be fair and honest science?
