How's this for bogus science? (and they are still talking about some Climategate...)
Just a brief summary:
-The speaker of parliament turns out to possess scientific talent. He registers a water purification patent in cooperation with another guy.
-His co-author turns out to have a criminal record, and a Science citation index search for his works produces zero results. Also, the guy has a history of proposing dozens of "inventions" ranging from plagiarized nuclear medicine patents to quite original perpetual motion machines.
-When the government announces a multi-million dollar clean water program, it turns out that out of all water filters available on the market, the best filters are the ones that were designed by the speaker of parliament in cooperation with the inventor of perpetual motion machines.
-Unfortunately, the Academy of Sciences refuses to endorse the bogus invention and calls the speaker's partner a charlatan.
-In response the speaker of parliament blasts the Academy's commission against bogus science and accuses the Academy of charlatanism. In his opinion, the Academy of Sciences has no right to judge what is true science and what is not.
And now comes the scary part. On the photograph, G.W. Bush is showing his interest in the Gryzlov-Petrik water filter. Isn't is scary that Republican puppet masters couldn't even find a competent scientific advisor for Dubya?
