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.
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.
