When scientific fraud kills millions
Scientific fraud often ends up killing people. Joseph Stalin's fraudulent "agronomist" Trofim Lysenko caused harvest failures when Soviet agriculture was ordered to follow his bizarre pseudo-science. "Scientific Marxism" killed 100,000,000 people, according to Marxist historians themselves.
The medical truth about the AIDS epidemic, that it was communicated by anal intercourse, especially among men, was suppressed for decades, causing thousands of more young men to die. And now it seems that the global warming fraud, just one aspect of broader EcoFraud, is killing people in the Third World. The proximate cause? A doubling of food prices. Why? Because of the diversion of food crops to biofuels.
In a letter to Australian PM Kevin Rudd, Lord Christopher Monckton writes:
Read the whole letter. These frauds take their toll in the Third World long before we see the effects in prosperous nations. For us the fraud is a luxury. For them it's survival.
