Scientific Establishment Rocked By New Science Scandal

The World Health Organization’s cancer agency dismissed and edited findings from a draft of its review of the weedkiller glyphosate that were at odds with its final conclusion that the chemical probably causes cancer. Documents seen by Reuters show how a draft of a key section of the International Agency for Research on Cancer’s (IARC) assessment of glyphosate – a report that has prompted international disputes and multi-million-dollar lawsuits – underwent significant changes and deletions before the report was finalised and made public. –Kate Kelland, Reuters, 19 October 2017

The world’s biggest scientific experiment is on course to become the most expensive source of surplus power. With wind-farm campaigners starting to promise subsidy-free power by 2025 and electricity demand in Europe stagnating, the future of fusion research looks bleak. —Bloomberg, 20 October 2017

The Netherlands will miss 2020 targets for renewable energy production and greenhouse gas emissions despite new investments in wind power, according to a government review published on Thursday. —Reuters, 19 October 2017

Further advances towards climate change targets are threatened by political resistance. […] Rapid growth of generously subsidised renewable projects has left end users, taxpayers or energy companies with steeper bills while private investors have secured lucrative profits. —Financial Times, 20 October 2017

    Is this the same WHO who (however briefly appointed a 93 year-old crook to be their Goodwill Ambassador for Health, a gangster who has ground his national health service so far into the ground that patients needing an operation have to buy their own anaesthetics and medication and who himself flies abroad for medical treatment? Take a bow, Robert Mugabe.
