Here’s the thing: If you listen to Fox News, or right-wing radio,
or read the denier blogs, you’d have to think climate scientists
were complete idiots to miss how fake global warming is. Yet
despite this incredibly obvious hoax, no one ever publishes
evidence exposing it. Mind you, scientists are a contrary lot. If
there were solid evidence that global warming didn’t exist, or
that CO2 emissions weren’t the culprit, there would be papers in
the journals about it. Lots of them.
I base this on my own experience with contrary data in astronomy.
In 1998, two teams of researchers found evidence that the
expansion of the Universe was not slowing down, as expected, but
actually speeding up. This idea is as crazy as holding a ball in
your hand, letting go, and having it fall up, accelerating wildly
into the sky. Yet those papers got published. They inspired lively
discussion (to say the least) and motivated further observations.
Careful, meticulous work was done to eliminate errors and
confounding factors, until it became very clear that we were
seeing an overturning of the previous paradigm. It took years, but
now astronomers accept that the Universal expansion is
accelerating and that dark energy is the culprit.
