Don't confuse actual science with politics and the greed politics spawn. If you think that science is driven by a bunch of money grubbers with no consciousness of furthering mankind's quest for knowledge, then you truly don't understand scientific research at all.<quoted text>
Right. An investor who wants to prove that greenhouse gasses are eating the ozone and is willing to put up millions of dollars to prove it will give the money to a group of scientists who's preliminary findings show that the results will likely be contradictory to what the investor wants. You do realize that any study can show any results depending on what is controlled for and what isn't? Knowing that, you still think the data is "straight forward"? Really?
Every great scientific discovery was challenged by those incapable of understanding the possibilities surrounding those discoveries. If listened to, those detractors would still have us believe the Earth was flat and one could buy their way into Heaven.
