if you want to see how this has been going on for many years take a look at Rick Stein's "Expelled" no intelligence allowed why do scientists have to say the king has clothes to keep their jobs when he is parading around in the nude? they are no longer scientists as science means knowledge or truth when truth goes under the bus then we don't really have any scientists any more we need to stand up for objective reporting by all scientists and not have funding linked to results

"Expelled" is a very good book on this subject of politically correct ideology regardless of scientific or economic fact and experience.

Something’s amiss at the Department of Interior. Eight government scientists were recently fired or reassigned after voicing concerns to their superiors about faulty environmental science used for policy decisions. Which begs the question, “Are some government agencies manipulating science to advance political agendas?”

Fictional book authors operate in a convenient world, unconstrained by facts and experiences of the real world. The antithesis of works of fiction are scientific findings solely based on provable facts and experience. For agenda-driven environmental science, facts can sometime prove inconvenient. It’s far easier to advance an agenda with agreeable science, even if that means creating science...
