A Most Curious Piece of Censorship

The global warming theory has caused an absolute shower of research money to fall down upon the heads of atmospheric scientists -- people who once got little funding. So few atmospheric scientists question the theory outright. It would kill the goose that lays the golden eggs.

Even when they find something good about global warming they manage to make it sound bad. There is for instance a report here showing that warmer seas produce more fish. Anyone who likes fish dinners (as I do) would think that was excellent news. But the article in fact sounds very mournful. You have to look very closely at it to see the good news.

So the only scientists who often question the theory are Russian scientists (they don't get much in the way of research grants anyway) and retired scientists (their research grant days are over).

So what happens when somebody gathers some data that throw the theory into a cocked hat? The report gets censored. A Russian scientist presented some findings that were reported here: http://www.physorg.com/news11671.html on a respectable Western physics site. The title of the article was: "Greenhouse theory smashed by biggest stone". But the article was up for only a matter of hours before it was taken down. And if you do a Google search or an MSN search you will find no copy of the story anywhere on the net. The censorship was thorough.

But not thorough enough. One of the naughty boys (they ignore copyright) at "Free Republic" copied the story and reposted it just in time. See here. Happy reading!

Free Republic is another of the sites that Google seems to censor -- perhaps for legal reasons. I will however take a risk and repost the article on "Greenie Watch" tomorrow.

The article is not censored on the AAAS's EurekAlert News site.

But you should also check out the response from a top climate scientist at NASA GISS about the article here:

Essentially, this theory is completely bunk.
