Polls: Rising number doubt honesty among scientists
|August 5, 2011||Posted by News under Climate change, Science|
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of American Adults shows that 69% say it’s at least somewhat likely that some scientists have falsified research data in order to support their own theories and beliefs, including 40% who say this is Very Likely. Twenty-two percent (22%) don’t think it’s likely some scientists have falsified global warming data, including just six percent (6%) say it’s Not At All Likely. Another 10% are undecided.

The number of adults who say it’s likely scientists have falsified data is up 10 points from December 2009.
The government needs to vote the people out of office and elect a new “pro-science” public that would never think they had any right to question such things.
