    The new Dark Ages not only suppresses scientific findings, it sends out misinformation.  Add to that, scientists are often funded by business interests to cloud knowledge, we no longer know what is legit.  Cynical is too mild a word for how I feel.  The "science" defending cigarette smoking was probably not the first instance of paid scientific bullshit, but it is the template for the shit that followed.  In sum, money is king, even scientists are whores.

    Apres Bush, le deluge.

      The so called cycles don't exist but we don't know how or why NASA started talking about them. The one piece of evidence on management's roleI have is the PBS interview video, which I found disturbing.

      look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.
