Well, John, if you cut off their Government Funding, you will find that real science takes precedence. Otherwise, you are going to get the Politics of Reality Shows, not the Truth. And the Media elitists will gladly play along as they foolishly attempt to dissect another "government funded study" of something that hasn't happened since the government started funding the "science".
Want a REAL hoot? Just ask them what is the "perfect climate". Your answer will be another packages piece of "science" that borders on insanity.
