Science magazine photoshops polar bear on ice floe, foes attack

This was supposed to illustrate the dangers of climate change. But what it did was to give climate change foes more ammo to use, “see they faked it again.”

I’m staggered at the political stupidity of too much of the climate change movement. After the considerable recent damage caused by reports of faked data – followed by climate change proponents doing nothing until way too late – everyone involved really needs to make absolutely sure their reports are unassailable.

Part of the problem is arrogance, climate change proponents are so convinced their science is correct, they don’t need to defend their views. Sorry, but politics doesn’t work like that.
