In an uncertain age, anyone who suggests that consensus beliefs could be improved on can find themselves looking for work.
Caroline Crocker at AITSE tells us of a popular University teacher, Nicholas Drupela at Oregon State University, who doubted the current bumf about climate change, and got the boot. Here’s a probable reason. More.
The part we don’t get is, we just heard recently that the climate change lobby voted to accept “grey” papers and put political correctness before achievement. Plus, scandals in that quarter are nothing new.
Meanwhile, there are purportedly serious academic studies going on about why we don’t believe the climate change alarmists – studies that owe nothing to the possibility that they have not behaved in such a way as to make themselves believable.
Like we say here: They can compel obedience, but not trust. Trust is earned.
