But the single page in a top science journal Jan. 20 proved as hot as the fire that scorched 500,000 acres of Southwest Oregon. It rattled one of the state’s most prestigious colleges and threatened momentum behind a congressional bill to speed action — including logging — after fires.
So, one page in one study by one graduate student (not even a credentialed scientist) is enough to discard years of prior research? Why is that?
Because it is the environmentalist equivalent of the Resurrection. It fulfills their quasi-religious prophecies and is therefore accepted without contention.
I guess this means that the Forestry scientists that thought their studies showed otherwise are idiots and should be terminated from whatever positions they hold. After all, we’ve been told to trust the science and according to the faithful, this study has shown the science to be all wrong.
But what will happen if someone does another study showing that this one is wrong?
Nothing at all. This is now the Gospel and anyone questioning it will be damned as a heritic.
