Advocates just can’t figure out why when it comes to climate change (read Global Warming) so many people are skeptical about the science. Well it’s not rocket science especially in light of the SCAMS that have been exposed over the past few years regarding the flimsy science behind it. And some of that “flimsy science” has in fact been outright falsifications.
Seems that the Inspector General for the National Science Foundation (NSF) issued a report recently alleging that 23 NSF scientists who applied for US taxpayer-funded research grants either plagiarized the text or manipulated the data but they were NOT barred from receiving any future grant money. In other words they lied about their research!
These falsifications took place in 2015 and 2016 according to the IG report. The IG found at least 8 instances in which the scientists deliberately manipulated the data and outright lied about the results of their research. To top it off officials with the NSF ignored recommended sanctions against these scientists and academics! Several were “temporary barred” (slap on the hands) from additional federal funding but almost all of them will be eligible for any future funding so they can, no doubt, conduct even further FAKE SCIENCE. One researcher was caught plagiarizing text into no less than five NSF proposals.
The IG reports says, “These actions were a significant departure from the standards of the research community, and therefore constituted research misconduct” (FRAUD). The IG report recommended that the NSF classify the plagiarism as “research misconduct” and require the researchers to complete A COURSE in proper Research Methods! Excuse me? A COURSE in Research Methods? Do you mean these liars never took such a course in college? What good would taking such a course do for these charlatans? Obviously they didn’t pay attention in college during their Research Methods courses!! Continue Reading
