Reality Check: Peer Review Or Peer Pressure

Greetings puny Earthlings.

I find it funny that those who love to call global warming doubters "sell-outs" who are in "the pay of big business" and that their research doesn't "pass peer review," because as we've been seeing with reports of hacked e-mails, there's no such thing as peer review in climate science, only peer pressure.

For those who don't know, the "Climategate" e-mail scandal is all about a plucky little devil of a hacker getting his hands on the e-mails between a Dr. Phillip Jones of the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit and senior advisor to the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and Dr. Michael Mann one of the chief authors of the now notorious, and woefully inaccurate "Hockey stick graph" made famous by Warm-monger and green fear profiteer Al Gore.

Now these weren't love notes they were exchanging, these two men, the two top brains in the field of "climate research" were actively conspiring to cover-up data that proved that the so-called "global warming" was a natural, and cyclical phenomena, and that it ended in the late 1990s.

That's an affront against the very nature of science, and you're probably wondering how these chaps managed to get away with it. I mean weren't these sorts of things supposed to be "peer reviewed."

Well yes, but peer review is only as good as the peers doing the reviewing, and whether or not those peers have the testicular fortitude to resist the overwhelming peer pressure so prevalent in contemporary Earthling climate research.

You see, if you dare write anything that might question the findings of those two men and their assorted climate catamites, you will find it very hard to get a journal to publish your research, and if some plucky journal does decide to publish, well guess what happens. Suddenly word starts zipping around the "climate community" that the journal in question isn't fit for toilet paper because they dared publish some evil anti-Earth propaganda.

That's right, you'll find your career sunk by those very same men with accusations of doing the exact same things that they themselves appear to do on a twice daily basis.

Climate research isn't science, it's a high school cheerleader squad, with its ranks determined by the bitchy machinations of the squad's meanest girls who crush all who dare oppose them with slander, and innuendo until they develop an eating disorder and give up, because they can't have their voices heard.

Now you're probably wondering why these men would sacrifice all sense of scientific integrity to become nothing more than a pair of glorified whores.

The answer is simple.


It's a deadly combination, but too much for folks to pass up.

You see to get any money to do research you have to apply to governments and corporation backed foundations. And if you don't want your application in the circular file you have to tell them what they want to hear, and what they want to hear is "Global Warming," and the more doom oriented the better.

Governments want to hear it because Warm-mongering Alarmism allows them to-

1. Gain more control of the lives of their people, using an "Obey or we're all doomed" message to regulate personal freedom into oblivion.

2. Use the "crisis" to justify massive tax hikes, even bigger spending programs, and the accumulation of massive debts, with most of the money going to...

Big corporations, who want Global Warming because it gives them...

1. An excuse to suckle at the teat of taxpayers, draining billions every year to supposedly spent on "alternative energy" programs, that don't really produce enough energy.

2. They will then use the excuse of "not enough power" to hike the price of energy, and along with it the price of literally everything you might possibly want, or need.

3. Meanwhile they race to the bottom, using the "carbon credit" status of the Third World, exploiting their resources, both natural and human, and pollute wildly, all in the name of "saving the planet.

Dr. Jones and Dr. Mann saw an opportunity and they went for it. They made themselves unassailable. The mainstream media and the current American and Western European administrations will not do anything to them. These men are the prophets of a new faith, a faith that gives them absolute control without the pesky morality that most religions come with.

So what good is peer review is climate research? Apparently it's not good at all, especially when men like those are the peers you have to submit too.

Keep watching the skies, because we're watching you.

Excellent analysis, in the nutshell the problem is government funding of research. No researcher wants to publish results declaring a need for government to go pound sand and leave us alone. You publish that and the next grant application will be rejected.

You publish that before tenure and you can kiss your tenure good bye. Remember the same people that review your papers are typically sitting on tenure review committees as well or they act as outside experts evaluating your research in order to provide an unbiased review of your work for your tenure committee.

You confess to that while having a beer with your hopefully future colleagues, right after a job talk they invited you to and no matter how well your talk went you will be rejected. And so on and so forth, on every level of academic career dissent is being ruthlessly purged.

Students (even undergrads) who think for themselves quickly learn to keep their heads down.
