Snake oil salesmen of the old west were more sincere than our current population of "scientists'. Most are seeking funding to expand their knowledge and open themselves up to corruption through this eagerness to learn. Others are just plain out to get paid...hoping for government contracts or tenure at some Leftist university. They will say anything the government tells them to and will even provide rational sounding "facts" to back their data up. But as soon as other scientists check...the debunking starts anew. According to our global warmers...we should have been under 25 feet of ocean 30 years ago. Lucky for these scam artists that the average American has about a 6 month attention span for historical crisis's....example Fast & Furious.
