Next week on August 3, I’ll be releasing my latest list of climate scandals, a gate-update (see Current list of climate scandals). This is a month earlier than originally planned.
The list that’s posted now is visited on average about 100 times a day. Clearly it has become some sort of resource.
Unsurprisingly, the new list coming out has grown, and it will continue to grow. This is assured because of the way climate science is operated, funded, rewarded and politicised.
The disease is hopelessly chronic and there is no treatment in sight. The system is designed, built and programmed to keep producing many more scandals. Already I see dozens of new gates in incubation.
“Climate science” even has its own immune system that works to keep out the deadly virus called “truth”. The reality of that immune system became clear with the Muir Russell, Oxburgh and Penn State enquiries.
Soon I will have to break the climate-gate list into Volumes 1 and 2. I have no doubts about this.
The real threat, unfortunately, is that “climate science” risks becoming a malignant cancer that will threaten to spread to other fields of science and to our public institutions. In some cases it already has. Because of “climate science”, the public is losing trust in science and the civic institutions that are supposed to police it. As mistrust of climate science reaches ever higher levels, so will the public mistrust in other fields.
Scientists in these other fields need to take notice.
