    Scientific institutions need to start charging these liars with scientific fraud and malpractice, and pulling their credentials as Scientists.

    “Professor of the Public Understanding of Risk”? That’s quite a title.

    As I retired academic I know that about 10 years into my career in the 70s I noticed that I was raised to think of academia as a place where you sought truth without preconceptions. But I noticed that as a career academic I had somehow noticed that to be a successful academic I had fallen in with the general practice of having an agenda. You had to have not just a field, but a bone to pick. It bothered me. Another 10 years down the track and I found myself walking across campus one day thinking ‘AT LEAST WE ARE NOT CORRUPT LIKE POLICEMEN TAKING MONEY TO NOT DO OUR JOBS” I got another few steps before I realized that was exactly what i was doing. I was corrupt and had to get out. I did. It was remarkable how long it took me to recognize this inconvenient truth. There are certainly still uncorrupt academics but it is no longer safe to assume that academics are basically honest or even always conscious of their dishonesty. Agenda driven science has become so common that any MSM report of research has to be assumed to be spun and the research itself should be taken as tentative until replicated by hostile scientists.

      The situation has gotten worse and worse in the last 20 years especially. Before the late 80s, frauds like this were spectacular but rare. With the Boomer generation now in charge, they’re ho-hum and par for the course. Everyone has to be on guard for the latest “study” “proving” some leftist twaddle. A generation is long enough for the twisted career and money incentives to make a permanent mark.

    At least Seralini released his data, which more than you say about the “global warming” BS brigade, which refused to release the “hockey stick” files until forced to. Once analyzed by others, the fraud at the heart of the “hockey stick” — deliberate misanalysis and doctoring of statistical methods — quickly became apparent.
