    Nate is a low-grade pseudoscientist.

    Why is no one talking about global darkening? It’s a little after 6:30am where I’m typing this, and the world is enshrouded in darkness. Oh wait—it’s starting to get light again. False alarm.

    All those pinko liberal scientists got together and dreamed up global warming for their own benefit….which is….well,never mind.

    This is a new phase of Gore’s conspiracy. Look how well inventing the internet worked for him! (Kids, can you say, “DARPA”? I knew you could. It’s a beautiful day on the web.)

    Genome – Gonna have to invent a new word for what used to mean “rich”.

    Last panel totally unrealistic: as if these eggheads ever pay attention to evidence. If only conservative TV personalities had some way to get heard!

    I’m going to have to roll up my pants-cuffs: the sarcasm is getting pretty deep in here!

    97% of scientists say climate change is real. The other 3% work for the oil industry.

    Genome (though I suspect your real name is Nate), do you have any idea of how much a scientist makes? As a scientist myself, I can tell you that a scientist’s reputation is actually enhanced if he can show that the status quo is wrong. In general, basic researchers have no reason to fudge their data. If you publish something that is wrong, your peers will like nothing better than show the world how stupid you are and how smart they are. That’s how science works.

    There are always some contrarians. Always.
    They’re trying to get some easy exposure in their community by taking a controversial position, and in the unlikely event that they turn out to be partly right, they get bragging rights.
    (And if their ethical standards are low and someone wants to pay them to be a spokescritter, hey, bonus!)

    This made me laugh AND think. And tap my foot a little.

    We had the same sort of argument when congressmen from tobacco growing states said that the science on the link between smoking and cancer was still out, produced a few fringe scientists who said as much, and the CEOs of the tobacco companies went in front of congress and took turns saying “nicotine is not addictive” when later internal memos showed that they knew it was. If you are willing to cause slow, painful deaths in your customers to make yourself rich it is not a stretch to think that those in the fossil fuel industry would lie to pad their own coffers.
