The National Academy Of Sciences Discovers A New Bear Species: Ursus Bogus

The National Academy of Sciences in a move to help beleagured Climate Scientists and show that the claims that they have a loose grasp on facts, printed an article in their  magazine SCIENCE. One teeny tiny little problem with this article, they used a photoshopped picture of a Polar Bear stranded on a rapidly melting piece of ice as proof. What makes it even more laughable it wasn’t exactly hard to find this out, since the picture was clearly marked as a fake where the authors took the image from.

Here is the picture as taken from its site:

and here is the caption from the site:

A polar bear managed to get on one of the last ice floes floating in the Arctic sea. Due to global warming the natural environment of the polar bear in the Arctic has changed a lot. The Arctic sea has much less ice than it had some years ago. (This images is a photoshop design. Polarbear, ice floe, ocean and sky are real, they were just not together in the way they are now)

Now I got a few things to say:

First to the editors of SCIENCE magazine: If you can’t figure out a simple photoshopped picture, you are not qualified to be an authority on Climate Science. Since these so called “scientists” can scam you with this , they certainly can scam you on something more technical like statistics. So until you fix your own house, you don’t have leg to stand on when trying to tell sceptics they are wrong . I guess this is what “Peer Review” editing is all about.

To the Climate Scientists that are complaining that they are undeservedly being attacked for exaggerating claims and falsifying data: Don’t used fake evidence to show your innocent. All this did is show that besides faking data and exaggerating claims, this proves how incompetent at it you are. The best thing you can do for yourselves is shut up, you are just digging yourselves a deeper hole to get out of but if you were going to learn that lesson, you would have learned it when NOAA got caught photoshopping pictures in a report.
