There is a sociology of science. Scientists are not saints in white laboratory smocks. They have got interests like everybody else. If you want a tenure-track position in academia, don’t question the reigning orthodoxy on climate change.–George F. Will, dismissing the consensus view of global warming. 

The West Antarctic ice sheet has begun its fateful slide

With a push from Exxon, it’s starting to subside

Into the warming ocean, while California’s fried.

But George F. Will has spoken: Climate change, denied.

Humanity burns carbon like it’s going out of style

Rising waters lap against each continent and isle

But George F. Will defends us with the power of denial

And with his sneer turns back the rising tide.

Scientists in thrall to superstition

Fall in line to further their ambition

But George F. Will is armed with intuition.

He’s also got the Bible on his side.

So let each scientific sage and genius

Believe the Earth is turning into Venus

George Will with his tiny little penis

Will water all the deserts that have dried.
