        Climate Change: We're often told by advocates of climate change that the "science is settled." But in fact, "science" itself is in a deep crisis...


        ...two-thirds of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist's experiments, research suggests." This isn't just his journalistic opinion, but the conclusion of the University of Virginia's Center for Open Science, which estimates that roughly 70% of all studies can't be reproduced...


        ...to reproduce others' experiments or findings from models is at the very heart of science...


        ...a government paper that called into question the 18-year "pause" in global warming was based on "experimental" data and politicized. That "paper" was used to justify President Obama's signing of the Paris climate agreement...


        ...University physicist Will Happer told the left-wing British newspaper the Guardian earlier this week: "There's a whole area of climate so-called science that is really more like a cult. ...   

        ...Real science has nothing to fear from more openness and discussion, but everything to fear from more politicized dishonesty.

There are folks that say "I don't believe in a god, I believe in science".  The problem w/ that is the fact that while science is an excellent method of inquiry it's horrible when it's turned into a belief system.  This is becuase it's easier for folks to forget the substance of science (observation and analysis) and replace it w/ the form of science (guys w/ white coats and thick books pompously strutting).  Personally, I vote against using my tax dollars to supplant the substance w/ the form.
