Read here and here. Regardless of the science discipline, it appears that the science community is on a suicidal, self-destruct path of totally destroying their credibility with the public. It seems that on a daily basis, some scientist(s) is claiming his/her research predicts, based on computer model predictions, imminent disaster if society doesn't act quickly by spending money on more "scientific" research or taking action on the directions of the scientist(s), by spending even more money. In the case of global warming science, the public is tiring of the constant, inaccurate fear-mongering ("predictions"). Now comes the realization that the swine-flu death predictions were way over-the-top also....it's no wonder the public distrust of scientists is growing.
It's not only the scientists that are the problem. One always needs an leftist/liberal enabler, an authoritarian facilitator to spread the unproven fear, 24/7. Which means, of course, all potential disasters have to have their respective United Nations agency sponsor (er...how else to get gullible journalists' attention, thus greasing the skids of power corruption?). In the case of the swine flu, it's the World Health Organization (WHO) a UN affiliated agency. From a WHO representative we have this, which sounds awful familiar to the crisis talk we get from the UN's IPCC:
"What may be surprising is that it wants to use that power to help bring about a global economic and social revolution--and that Director-General Chan was so blunt about it in a speech in Copenhagen..."
"She said "ministers of health" should take advantage of the "devastating impact" swine flu will have on poorer nations to tell "heads of state and ministers of finance, tourism and trade" that:
* The belief that "living conditions and health status of the poor would somehow automatically improve as countries modernized, liberalized their trade and improved their economies" is false. Wealth doesn’t equal health.
* "Changes in the functioning of the global economy" are needed to "distribute wealth on the basis of" values "like community, solidarity, equity and social justice."* "The international policies and systems that govern financial markets, economies, commerce, trade and foreign affairs have not operated with fairness as an explicit policy objective."
