Polar Bear Champion Charles Monnett Accused of Scientific Misconduct
It will take more than a warm summer to keep the global warming hoax from continuing to crumble. Charles Monnett, the government bureaucrat/scientist who helped make polar bears the mascot of the envirocommunist movement, now finds himself on leave, having been accused of scientific misconduct.
It’s unclear whether Monnett’s “integrity issues” have to do with a 2006 article in which he claimed that four dead polar bears drowned as a result of the imaginary global warming crisis. The Latin name for polar bear is Ursus maritimus or sea bear; they are highly buoyant and can swim for hundreds of miles. The dead bears contributed to the absurd propaganda campaign mounted by Al Gore.
Myron Ebell, of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said the case reinforces the group’s position that people should be more skeptical about the work of climate change scientists.
Even if every scientist is objective, “what we’re being asked to do is turn our economy around and spend trillions and trillions of dollars on the basis of” climate change claims, he said.
With $zillions of government funding on the line, scientists involved in the hoax are anything but objective, as the Climategate scandal confirmed.
Monnett’s duties included managing $50 million worth of the studies Big Government conducts with our money to prove that economic freedom makes it be too hot out.
