Eisenhower's warnings about the Military-Industrial Complex have been much-quoted and much-ignored. Peace offers limited opportunities for graft.
There's another section of the same speech that should be carved into granite.
The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.
What does this have to do with anything?
Please allow me to translate....
Our government is running out of things to tax. Carbon emissions are one of the last frontiers. They want to do it under the heading of preventing Global Cooling/Global Warming/Climate Change or whichever term is unprovable.
There is no money for anyone in the grant/allocation/scholarship/greenery racket who wants to point out that climate is doing what it has always done. It has always changed, it is changing, and it always will change.
In the present circumstances, can you imagine our government funding any research to prove that?
