Criticizing the mainstream is highly risky: Young scientists forced to conform to established models to avoid putting careers at risk

By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt

In Weltwoche of 6 April 2016 Prof. Mathias Binswanger was very clear on why young university researchers are quasi forced to submit themselves to the trends of the day, i.e. the overriding mainstream in any particular scientific field:

Mathias Binswanger: ‘The principle is ultimately always the same: Foremost one has to be an often published and often cited figure in his/her scientific field in order to be able to contribute to the ranking of a university. But how does one often publish or become often cited in respected journals of his own field? The most important principles are: Adaptation to the mainstream and do not question any established theories or models. All submitted articles first must go through a peer-review process where champions of the scientific discipline evaluate it. Under these circumstances a young researcher has no option but to go along with the mainstream theories represented in the top journals and to use the empirical processes that are currently in trend. Only in this way does he/she have any chance of having enough publications to make him/herself eligible to be a professor. Through this very kind of pressure to conform applied by top journals is science obstructed rather than promoted.’”

It is hardly necessary to mention that this principle promotes a “Stalinist conformity” with the highly politicized climate sciences for young researchers. typically today mostly only retired professors dare to speak up when it comes to doubt over the supposed imminent climate catastrophe. These professors finally beco0me free to openly express themselves without threats to their  careers threatened.

    Conformity is the only way the AGW kooks will keep their scam alive. They must keep everyone on the reservation. Dissent is not allowed under the threat of judicial punishment. Incredible that the sheep keep believing that crap.

    Waiting for the usual AGW kooks to make their appearance.

      Agreed. And it’s not just a few usual AGW kooks, it’s relentless hordes of them – half of them ‘bots. And the more animated ones run hog-wild on their own silly websites like grist.org where they congratulate each other on their wisdom and insight on the evils of carbon. Plus they plan the demise of Liberty and Capitalism and inexpensive energy, reveling in complete twilight zone status. Look, they even have their dullards resort to psychobabble to peddle their fiction: http://grist.org/climate-energy/heres-everything-we-know-about-how-to-talk-about-climate-change/ They have no clue that this so called “science” is just a nonsensical veneer that hides detailed and nefarious plans for massive wealth redistribution and the purposeful destruction of national sovereignty everywhere. We’re so screwed if we get another climate change alarmist in office.

      How do you know that?

    The great scientists of the past must be turning in their graves. Today’s universities should be ashamed of themselves.
