ClimateGate GlacierGate OzoneGate And The EcoScientists

EcoScientists told us to spend hundreds of billions of dollars to scrap every air conditioner and refrigerator in the world and change to a new Freon in order to close the ozone hole; but they didn’t tell us that natural variability is having a bigger effect than Freon and they didn’t tell us that closing the ozone hole will contribute to global warming and cause the Antarctic ice to melt faster!

-
It appears that EcoScientists who are involved in these Eco-movements that involve major government policy decisions should be clearly and publicly identified because they’re giving the rest of the scientific profession a really bad name!
-
Perhaps combining science with politics contaminates these EcoScientists with the same afflictions that contaminate politicians. The root of that contamination is of course massive grants of tax money “gifted” by the politicians to those EcoScientists who generate the best story to support the movement. Those who do not agree need not apply! Those who oppose need a backup employment option.
-
Major onerous characteristics of these EcoScientists are that they fail to present the uncertainty in their hypothesis, totally avoid identifying potential adverse consequences of their recommendations and fail to disclose their sources of funding and conflicts of interest.
A prime example of this is the Rachael Carson DDT ban which has led to over one million malaria deaths each year for over 20 years in third world countries. No one was ever identified as getting ill from DDT and clearly a major focus on responsible application would have been a responsible first and probably only required action. Interestingly, it was primarily government agencies that were irresponsible in how they were doing DDT applications.
-
It appears these EcoScientists are primarily located in government agencies and grant supported sections of universities where they are immune to independent evaluation of their work and performance and therefore are safely tenured and nurtured by the politicians they satisfy. Sounds like scientific socialism doesn’t it?
-
The liberal media plays a major role in this scenario by ensuring that these politicians and their symbiotic EcoScientists are shielded from public scrutiny and accountability as we have witnessed by the lack of public visibility into ClimateGate, GlacierGate and OzoneGate.
