That is true of all science today, Stephen. That is a particularly bad argument on your part. Virtually all science depends on grants and academic and government financing. So you are invoking conspiracy theories. Good work.

You mean the community that lives or dies on whether they get grant
money? And the way to get grant money is to justify why they could be
fed MORE money. Can you imagine how the "science community" would
continue to survive?
Now, the medical research community is another story.
Perhaps a better use for that grant money would be to develop Best
Practices for installing fiber cable that can withstand immersion to a
depth of 200 feet without failing -- thereby coming up with something
positive in light of the so-called scientific predictions.
Instead of "the sky is falling", say "here is how to prop up the sky on
a dollar a day."
