    Dr. Dong-Pyou Han spiked a clinical test sample with healthy human blood to make it appear that the rabbit serum produced disease-fighting antibodies, officials said. The bogus findings helped Han’s team obtain $19 million in research grants from the National Institutes of Health, said James Bradac, who oversees the institutes’ AIDS research.

    Those of us concerned about the decaying credibility of Big Science were dismayed to learn that the whistleblower site Science Fraud has been shut down due to a barrage of legal threats against its operator. With billions of dollars in federal science funding hinging on the integrity of academic researchers, and billions more in health care dollars riding on the truthfulness of pharmaceutical research claims, the industry needs more websites like this, not fewer. Regular readers of Retraction Watch, a watchdog site run by two medical reporters, got the news along with a story about the blog’s anonymous editor, who...

    Gore Losing the War: 59% Don't Believe Man Is Warming the Planet By Noel Sheppard Created 2009-01-19 13:28 He won an Oscar and a Nobel Peace Prize, but a recent poll suggests the Global Warmingist-in-Chief Al Gore is losing his propaganda war to convince Americans carbon dioxide is destroying the planet. In fact, the number of people who believe that long-term planetary trends are responsible for the relatively small increase in temperatures in recent decades rose ten percent since last April while those viewing it as a man-made problem have decreased by six percent. Talk about your inconvenient truths! This...
  • 44% Say Global Warming Due To Planetary Trends, Not People

    Al Gore’s side may be coming to power in Washington, but they appear to be losing the battle on the idea that humans are to blame for global warming. Forty-four percent (44%) of U.S. voters now say long-term planetary trends are the cause of global warming, compared to 41% who blame it on human activity. Seven percent (7%) attribute global warming to some other reason, and nine percent (9%) are unsure in a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Democrats blame global warming on human activity, compared to 21% percent of Republicans. Two-thirds of GOP voters...

    If you're wondering why North America is starting to resemble nuclear winter, then you missed the news. At December's U.N. Global Warming conference in Poznan, Poland, 650 of the world's top climatologists stood up and said man-made global warming is a media generated myth without basis. Said climatologist Dr. David Gee, Chairman of the International Geological Congress, "For how many years must the planet cool before we begin to understand that the planet is not warming?" I asked myself, why would such obviously smart guy say such a ridiculous thing? But it turns out he's right. The earth's temperature peaked...
  • How the world was bullied into silence (global warming coverup)

    Canada Free Press ^ | January 19, 2009 | Dr. Tim Ball
    Advocates of human caused global warming to take increasingly ridiculous positions to defend the indefensible One of the most disturbing aspects of the global warming scam is the number of prominent people and entire segments of society bullied into silence. Consider the case of Dr. Joanne Simpson described as follows. “the first woman in the world to receive a PhD in meteorology, and formerly of NASA, who has authored more than 190 studies ... Then consider her statement. “Since I am no longer affiliated with any organization nor receiving any funding, I can speak quite frankly….As a scientist I remain...
  • Science Journals Delivering “Political Science”

    Last May, a Korean report in Science magazine prompted headlines around the world by declaring it had made tremendous advances in the heretofore disappointing field of embryonic stem cell (ES cell) research. It has now prompted much soul-searching in media land. “How could we have been fooled?” reporters are asking themselves in print. Well, wake up guys, because the major science and medical journals have been fooling you for years. And what appeared to be a trickle when I first wrote on it in 1999 has become a torrent. In fairness, for many submitted papers it’s quite difficult for journal...

    The fabricated evidence on human stem cells published by Hwang Woo-suk and colleagues had a life shorter than two years as scientific fact. In contrast, the infamous hominid remains of Piltdown Man announced in 1912 stood as real for nearly 40 years. Hwang Woo-suk et al.’s DNA evidence and photographs of human embryonic stem cells reportedly from a cloned blastocyst were “fabricated,” according to an international investigating panel convened by Seoul National University. The investigation sprang from questions about the cells and DNA evidence posted anonymously at Korea’s Biological Research Information Center. The SNU panel’s independent testing of evidence led...

    University of Toronto fraud ^ | April 8, 2005 | Michael Pyshnov
    In 1985 I was a mature PhD student at the University of Toronto. Two of my papers were published earlier in The Journal of Theoretical Biology. I postulated and described a "division wave" of cells in the tissue and showed that the division wave is the only way in which the cells can divide and multiply without destroying the structure of the tissue. In my PhD research I made the discovery (predicted by me) of embryonic cell patterns responsible for the structure of adult organs in Drosophila. The opinion of the Department about me was this: "We estimate he is...

Wright, who coined the term "bimbo eruptions," said Clinton's womanizing had "nothing to do with sex" and everything to do with "this inferiority complex . . .
