Climate Change Denial isn't science, either. It is a well organized and highly paid lobby sponsored by the oil industry.
Some parts of it are. Whenever people are involved in something, there will always be some who take advantage. There will always be some who are about pure science. There are scientists who work on it for their own enjoyment in researching and studying and to create a name for themselves. A negative reputation in the science community is a bad thing. Yes, some scientists can be hired or bought, if you prefer. But not all. Not by the majority. Most are seeking to make a name for themselves IN the science community. That's where it truly matters for them. Some are unable to enjoy the honest persuit of knowledge. They don't measure up (for what ever reason, maybe they're the geek in the nerd community) and will seek simply a means of income. They can be bought
Science is the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.
Science is a methodology for examining evidence., not a belief system.
Funny that supposed scientific studies are saying you must believe what we tell you without questioning us as the guy questioned by Cruz was saying.....something a bible thumper might do...?
