"Not true. If measured data shows that there is no global warming, then any
model that shows there is global warming trumps the actual data. Also we
might even fire the person who produced the measured data or at the very
least, assign him to a different job."
In the case of the USGS, for politically unpopular positions as resource
analysts, they either fired individuals or allowed them to come to harm in
This actually happened to the resource analysts when they predicted too much
molybdenum, gold, silver, etc... in a wilderness area. The newly-"greened"
USGS in the Clinton Administration simply allowed the guys to be sued
individually in court for estimating the presence of mineral endowment (as
required in the EIS) and provided no attorney to defend their techniques.
I'll dig-up the reference to a publication about that. One of them fought
back, and used his life's savings to defend his methods in court. The
controversy went all the way up to the Academy of Science. A commission
chaired by DeVerle Harris was established and the methodologies were
essentially upheld - But not before a lot of damage was done.
Here it is:
