Peer review is dead

Al Gore and Barack Obama keep telling us that climate science is “settled.”

Temperature hasn’t risen since the nineties?  Climate computer models have it wrong?

Nothing to see here folks, move along.

If climate science was truly “settled,” why would the global warming crowd need to resort to exaggeration, character assassination and suppression of opposing views?

Prof. Dr. Lennart Bengtsson of Sweden is a perfect example. 

Bengtsson is a huge figure in climate science.  He was director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology and the author of volumes of research.

This week Dr. Bengtsson was forced to resign from the academic board of a British think tank after a coordinated pressure campaign by the warmists.

Even worse — they blocked publication of his research labeling it “less than helpful” to their agenda.

Facts are facts.

If observed temperatures don’t fit the models that fact deserves publication.

Science should not be taken hostage by a political agenda.

Global warming advocates like to point to the “peer review” process as proof of the worth of their claims.

It is clear that a small number of zealots have seized control of the peer review process and transformed it from a means of checking scientific validity, into a means of subjecting science to ideological control.

The next time a warming campaigner shrilly throws the sanctity of “peer review” in your face, don’t mince words.

Tell them straight.

Peer review is dead.
