I'll check it out, thanks for the link.
Direct question: Do you think the majority of scientists are lazy, deceitful folk who work to lie and conspire for the purpose of obtaining grant money?
Not the majority...but if your funding comes from a source with an agenda, they know what outcome is expected. Going against the grain or questioning why , can put you on the unemployment line.
We've seen it happen many times.
How does one reliably determine what "the agenda" is? Who funds scientific endeavors without some sort of "agenda"?
Before, it seems funding was very secretive. These days it's wide out in the open, mostly far left environmental groups that boast of funneling money to causes that they want slanted.
People tend to think if an environmental group is funding something, it's a good thing because they are looking out for the environment.
But when you dig a litter deeper, sometimes that's not the case. That sort of thing is alive and well here in Canada..there are no restrictions on foreign funded groups doing those dirty deeds.
As an example, Saudi money flows into environmental groups who are doing a good job of shutting down our oil and gas industry by painting it as bad scientifically and environmentally.
The main goal is to keep relying on Saudi and other foreign oil..not our own
Two birds with one stone...foreign funded groups are protesting here right now against a pipeline that would give access to our own oil, while Saudi and Venezuelian tankers sail right by them into our harbors.
Crazy but true..those groups use scientific research to prove how bad oil is and we will all die if it continues...even if it was 100% true, why not use our own oil to kill ourselves?
