If he truly had some data to take down climate science, he would publish it somewhere.
No he wouldn't because no one would publish it, and the status quo would simply deride him as a quack, and people like you would say "look all these
scientists say he is wrong and he's a quack, so he must be a quack".
There was once this guy who said the earth wasn't the center of the universe, while everyone else said it was......
He got locked up but he was still right - weight of numbers of an opinion means nothing.
Anyway, I honestly don't think most of you have a clue how academia works. I know a professor of economics who studies a form of economics that would
make the world a fairer, happier place, but it has been forbidden by the powers that be.
It has even been labelled (after WW2) as anti-semitic - yes an economic theory is apparently evil!
Anyway, if an academic dares to publish anything about it not only are they labelled "Nazis", but they are also ridiculed by every man and his dog,
they then lose their funding and their career is over.
That is how it works - if you don't toe the line then your money gets cut off, you lose your job, and you are black-balled and will never get another
academic job ever again.
This is why you need to throw what you BELIEVE out of the window, start again with a totally open mind, LOOK at the ACTUAL EVIDENCE - not opinions or
what other people tell you it means in their opinion, or how other people tell you that you should interpret the evidence - and THINK.
This attitude that we've been encouraged to adopt of not learning, not thinking, and forming our opinions because someone with a fancy title or
working for an important sounding organisation tells us what to think, is what has got us into the mess we're in today, and it is PURE propaganda
aimed at controlling public opinion as developed by Bernays.
And sadly it's working.
