When Government and Science Mix

If global warming is true, then why are governments trying to suppress the skeptics:

Ministers who question the majority view among scientists about climate change should “shut up” and instead repeat the Government line on the issue, according to MPs.

The BBC should also give less airtime to climate sceptics and its editors should seek special clearance to interview them, according to the Commons Science and Technology Committee. Andrew Miller, the committee’s Labour chairman, said that appearances on radio and television by climate sceptics such as Lord Lawson of Blaby , the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, should be accompanied by “health warnings”.

A more accurate question to ask is: what do both Keynesian economic models and global warming models have in common?

The answer is that both allow the government to intrude on the private transactions of individuals and interfere with a market economy in order to provide benefits to an elite few at the expense of the mundanes they rule over.

Government scientists do not practice science.  They are a holy priesthood of modern Statism who make money off of taxpayers while providing validation to their fellow brethren in a process akin to a circle jerk, which they dub “peer review”.

And since science has pretty much been captured by the governments of Western civilization, we are seeing more and more studies become politically motivated to the point that many of them are outright falsehoods at worse, and at best inaccurate science.

This is what happens when you mix science with government.  You don’t get well-funded research and sound discoveries and innovations.  You get censorship, fraud, bigger government, pseudo-religious practices, and sometimes genocide.

After all, what Hitler did to the Jews was based on politically-motivated science, was it not?

I am not anti-science.  I don’t know enough to make a claim that global is or is not happening.  But given that many of the pro-global warming crowd has been exposed as frauds and liars, I find the assertion to be dubious at best.

Forget separation of Church and State.  We need separation of Science and State too.
