On the Advocates of Global Warming, and/or Climate Change:

Pierre Duhem, 1861-1916

Pierre Duhem, 1861-1916

“To maintain a theory that the facts contradict shows evidence of a childlike obstinacy. As for those―and there are some―who conceal or knowingly falsify the results of experiments about the facts they are charged to observe in order to avoid ruining an idea whose success flatters their vanity, it is no longer up to logic to condemn their error but to morals or morality to permit their trickery from flourishing.” ― Pierre Duhem, Essays in the History and Philosophy of Science, translated and edited, with introduction, by Roger Ariew and Peter Barker, Copyright © 1996 by Hackett Publishing, Inc., Page 21.
