'Global Warming' As Pathological Science
by James Lewis - November 2nd, 2007 - The American Thinker
Trofimko Lysenko is not a household name; but it should be, because he was the model for all the Politically Correct "science" in the last hundred years. Lysenko was Stalin's favorite agricultural "scientist," peddling the myth that crops could be just trained into growing bigger and better. You didn't have to breed better plants over generations, as farmers have been doing for ages. It was a fantasy of the all-powerful Soviet State.
Today, "global warming" is the new Lysenkoism. This article provides a list of the incredibly stupid claims to science of the political left of the last century. This latest junk science claim is frightening because otherwise rational beings are insisting that it is true in the face of compelling evidence it is not man's fault. Why are they so sure it has to be man's fault? It plays into the fears of a generation that was never taught to think by a corrupt education establishment but always taught to assign blame.
That makes it hard to deal with because to make progress you can't just appeal to the public based on logic, you must find a way to explain the process to people who have opinions and think they are a substitute for facts. No matter how many lies and exaggerations are told by the "global warming" hysterics on the left, a large portion of the public will not hold them accountable. The consequences are evil.
If that is not pathological, nothing is.
