A fascinating read. As usual follow the money and the government control of everything. He writes about an article written by a former believer who got off the band wagon. But perhaps the biggest of the underlying problems, and it is common to both arguments since it inevitably exists when there is large unpredictability and uncertainty, is the presence of strong forces encouraging public overstatement and a belief in worst-case scenarios… But the real worry with climate research is that it is on the very edge of what is called postmodern science…. Postmodern science envisages a sort of political nirvana in which scientific theory and results can be consciously and legitimately manipulated to suit either the dictates of political correctness or the policies of the government of the day.
