Munchausen by proxy syndrome (MBPS) is a relatively uncommon condition that involves the exaggeration or fabrication of climate illnesses or symptoms by a primary caretaker (scientist). One of the most harmful forms of science abuse, MBPS was named after Baron von Munchausen, an 18th-century German dignitary known for telling outlandish stories.
Sound familiar? See the the similarities? Read on.
In MBPS, an individual — usually a scientist or warmer — deliberately “makes” the planet appear sick or convinces others that the planet is sick. The scientist or warmer misleads others into thinking that the planet has climate problems by lying and reporting fictitious data. He or she may exaggerate, fabricate, or induce symptoms. As a result, scientists usually order tests, suggest different types of solutions (like carbon taxes and other asinine ideas), and may even hospitalize the planet or perform surgery like drilling ice cores to determine the cause.
Sound like some warmers and scientists we know? Sure does to me.
Typically, the perpetrator feels satisfied by gaining the attention and sympathy of warmers, greentards, and others who come into contact with him or her and the planet. Some experts believe that it isn’t just the attention that’s gained from the “illness” of the planet that drives this behavior, but also the satisfaction in being able to deceive individuals that they consider to be more important and powerful than themselves. (Like Obama, Gordon Brown, etc).
Because the scientist or warmer appears to be so caring and attentive, often no one suspects any wrongdoing. A perplexing aspect of the syndrome is the ability of the scientist or warmer to fool and manipulate other scientists and the public. Frequently, the perpetrator is familiar with the science profession and is very good at fooling the scientists and warmers. Even the most experienced scientists can miss the meaning of the inconsistencies in the Earth’s symptoms. It’s common for scientists to overlook the possibility of MBPS because it goes against the belief that a scientist or warmer would never deliberately hurt his or her Earth or fellow human beings.
Other theories say that Munchausen by proxy syndrome is a cry for help on the part of the scientist or warmer, who may be experiencing anxiety or depression or have feelings of inadequacy. Some may feel a sense of acknowledgement when the false science confirms their skills. Or, the scientist or warmer may just enjoy the attention that the sick planet— and, therefore, he or she — gets.
The things that go on with climate “alarmist” “believers” “warmers” and scientist who continue to advocate anthropogenic global warming, or now “climate change” is amazingly similar to Munchausen by Proxy Syndrome.
How can it be stopped. Well here’s some suggestions.
Perhaps we’re wrong by making all the efforts to bust the science by showing everyone the
“tricks”, data manipulation, missing data, unfounded science, data from magazines, peer-reviewed papers that are only peer-reviewed by fellow “warmer” scientists or non-scientists who happen to agree with their position.
I’d suggest we’d be better off getting the men in the white coats to grab these guys, put them in straight-jackets, and let the psychiatrists work on them until they admit their problems and get therapy.
Think about it. What is going on with climategate is eerily similar.
