Looking at the thread title and reading the material I am reminded of the headline the other day "Climate Change Scientist Found Guilty of Fraud"
The title, by linking him to climate change, tries to promote the idea that his theories and his fraud were linked when in fact they are just unconnected facts about the guy.

Cheap trick, man. Very cheap.
