“Global warming” and “climate change” have been aggressively promoted by environmentalists as an unassailable scientific truth, from which dissent is seen as bordering on the level of criminality.

There are many precedents for politically driven incursions into the world of science. Galileo was famously persecuted by the Catholic Church for stating that the earth revolves around the sun. More recently, the Soviet Union aggressively sponsored a genetic theory that stressed the influence of the environment over that of genes. In the Soviet Union of Stalin, geneticists were hounded, imprisoned and even killed. The following documentary details the Soviet sponsorship of “nurture over nature” theory, most notably advanced by Trofim Lysenko, a man who was later discredited as a fraud.

 

Any attempts by the state to influence scientific theory should be viewed with extreme caution,today more than ever.
