How science really works, in the context of the recent global-warming-hacking manufactured kerfuffle. I mean, really — are people really surprised that some scientists are bastards, and say mean things behind the backs of others? Really?
This is how it works: you put your model out there in the coliseum, and a bunch of guys in white coats kick the shit out of it. If it’s still alive when the dust clears, your brainchild receives conditional acceptance. It does not get rejected. This time.
This is a concept not only lost on the global warming deniers, but on the larger crackpot population. The ones who start whining about being abused and disrespected the minute you start asking questions about their treatise. Welcome to the major leagues, rook.
