(Casey Hendrickson) – Anyone with the IQ above your basic fecal speck knows that global warming no longer exists, and never was the result of man-made activity. False science doesn’t end there, however.
While a large volume of false scientific information is distributed in the United States, the problem is much more severe than we imagined.
As it turns out, you are far more likely to be given inaccurate (or fabricated) scientific data by American scientists, than any other group of scientists in the world.
Physorg.com: “US scientists are significantly more likely to publish fake research than scientists from elsewhere, finds a trawl of officially withdrawn (retracted) studies, published online in the Journal of Medical Ethics.”
Hmmm … how very interesting.
I remember being told in high school that scientists don’t make that much money. Times have changed, and science is big business now. Have you ever wondered why scientists do the stupid studies they do? It’s because they get money for doing them. Even though we already know kids who drink more than four sodas per day tend to bounce off of walls, we’ll study it anyway to get the money.
Not only are US scientists more likely to publish false data than anyone in the world, but they are more likely to be repeat offenders. They are also more likely to have their work cited by other publications.
This explains so much, doesn’t it?
US scientists, in an effort to make money, lie about their scientific findings (ala climategate). This false data is picked up by numerous publications (NY Times, LA Times, WaPo, etc.), and is reprinted as if it were fact. Now millions of Americans are convinced of some scientific finding that is not rooted in fact. To make matters worse, when the data is proven to be false (or fabricated) and the findings are retracted, there is no such retraction in the publications that helped distribute that false data.
Finally, a study worthy of a government grant.
