There’s a refreshing article over at The Guardian from Climate Scientist Tamsin Edwards concerned about the damage done to science by political advocacy in her movement:
I believe advocacy by climate scientists has damaged trust in the science. We risk our credibility, our reputation for objectivity, if we are not absolutely neutral. At the very least, it leaves us open to criticism. I find much climate scepticism is driven by a belief that environmental activism has influenced how scientists gather and interpret evidence.
You think? Or maybe it’s even worse, Tamsin. Perhaps your reputation is already in tatters due to the breathless fear mongering of “scientists” in the environmental movement. Maybe your credibility is already shot to hell due to your arrogant and immature notions of “Scientific Consensus ™”. It’s just possible that attributing every weather event, hot or cold, wet or dry, to man-made global warming made “scientists” like you the laughing-stock of “Science.”
I’m not a skeptic because I believe environmental activism has influenced how scientists gather and interpret evidence. I believe environmental activists masquerading a scientists only gather and interpret evidence that supports their desired narrative. Any evidence to the contrary is ignored, suppressed and/or attacked.
Here’s a newsflash: The day you bastards shamelessly abdicated your responsibility to scientific and moral truth to surreptitiously support a false narrative in a deliberate effort to affect politics and force unnecessary change upon the lives of billions of humans, you destroyed yourselves. To all our detriment.
Now, you can take your, “Golly, maybe we took it a little too far” routine and shove it up your ass.
