‘Grantsmanship’ Distorts Global Warming Science
Almost every day another species of plant or animal is “discovered” to be threatened by global warming. I read a new report concerning moose in Scandinavia that are unexpectedly “threatened” despite what researchers admit is a growing population. Penguins are in danger from loss of Antarctic ice even though the Antarctic ice-cap is known to be growing with colder temperatures recorded in the southern hemisphere in recent years according to NASA. Fortunately for these species — which hitherto managed to survive and thrive on their own for hundreds of thousands or millions of years — intrepid 21st Century researchers have arrived on the scene with Al Gore just in time to “rescue” them from climate change. How is it possible that such disparate species all around the globe are in such dire straights all at once?
In contrast, if one continues to toil on relatively obscure scholarship where actual scientific data is important, trend lines have meaning, and logical debate is allowed, the chances of winning funding for one’s work are greatly reduced. Scientists have learned therefore that they will be rewarded handsomely by identifying any tangential connection between their favorite studies and “global warming” alarmism. Like Pavlov’s dog with a PhD.
These competitions are “refereed” by experts (peers) selected by the agency for the purpose of judging the competition (DARPA, by the way, uses a different mechanism for selecting their R&D contractors). Peer review has served our nation well since WWII and has, for the most part, insured the high quality of the American scientific enterprise. There is nothing wrong with “grantsmanship” per se — it is the scientific world’s version of “salesmanship” — but like good salesmen and women who know their customer, scientists know their customer wants projects relevant to “climate change”.
“When you look at a map of the world and see where these changes are already happening, and how many species and systems are already responding to climate change after only a 0.6C rise, it just heightens our concerns for the future,” Rosenzweig said. “It’s clear we have to adapt to climate change as well as try to mitigate it. It’s real and it’s happening now.”
The media add fuel to the flame of global warming hysteria by dutifully reporting every new species (preferably cuddly photogenic ones) reported by “experts” to now be threatened, thus allowing them to inexpensively recycle the same clips of glaciers calving icebergs into the ocean (as glaciers have done for millions of years), and highlighting the alarming “relevance” of the particular researchers’ conclusions. Meanwhile, the university, the funding agency and congress get to bask in reflected glory (the media covered it so it must be highly relevant!).
In my view, it will take an august body like the National Academy of Science to step in to once again insulate science from politics. And even they might fail. We may be doomed, not by global warming, but by this iron triangle’s distortions and fear-mongering that attempt to stampede our fellow citizens into foolhardy policies intended to “correct” an unfounded “crisis”.
