In a world flush with integrity that could be a possibility . Number cruncher's can be just as corrupt in making their data's say what they want it to say as well if not better then your average Joe .
But I do know how we deal with the fact that not all knowledge is "good". The solution to this problem is science. Science lets us distinguish between the probable and the improbable, with ever increasing certainty.
climateaudit.org... If Science has integrity then this should be dealt with immediately . I am not going to hold my breath though because there is or seems to be higher ups that have to have this meme or agw to continue and to heck with the truth .
In putting together this note, I have had the benefit of input from two statistical experts: Professor Gordon Hughes (Edinburgh University) and Professor Roman Mureika (University of New Brunswick, now retired). Both of them regard the statistical methods in Marotzke’s paper as fatally flawed.

Knowlegde is power/control/might. There is no doubt in my mind.
I wish to stress this point, so that people might understand why these things happen, and how we might prevent it. Bad things happen because of stupid people. Education is the solution.

Angry people aren't 'uneducated', they are educated (reared) 'differently'. They have usually been abused at an early age and, or not being given coping skills to deal with ordinary life. The result over time is a build up of a lot of little resentments that become one big cup filled with anger. At this point the slightest affront can set off huge outbursts, resulting in what we see in the news.
What is your cup filled with? What runs over into your world?
Every soul has the ability to rise above the crap they have been exposed to here and control what they are putting out to not make things worse. It is hard but it can be done. Mastering the self. One step taken on that road is one step you do not have to take later.
