The distortion of science for ideological purposes has a long history, and the results are generally ugly.

Australian Keynesian economist Professor John Quiggin has decided that the debate over global warming is over, and has ceased to bother with any argument contrary to his, from what I assume is his newly acquired, stance of conversion to the secular faith of AGW.

I posted a comment (no 119 I think) but as JQ seems to edit his blog, I adopt a precautionary position and copy it here.


In Science there is no debate about facts - the hypothesis is either true or false.

What part of the sentence I just wrote have you difficulty with?

If it's consensus then it is not science and never has been.

So global warming theories are not science but technically sophisticated religion, for which you have fallen, hook, line and sinker.
