Medical Xpress, November 2, 2011: Diederik Stapel, the Dutch social psychologist who has made news on a rather regular basis over the last several years, and who had even become popular on some television chat shows, has been found to be a complete fraud, making up data, rather than conducting field trials as he claimed. In his so-called studies of social phenomena, he’s made claims suggesting for example that eating meat makes people more aggressive, or that scientists working in messy labs tend to discriminate more - Popular Dutch psychologist Diederik Stapel found to be a fraud

WUWT, November 15, 2011: Must be Durban season. From Princeton University here’s a highly charged press release lapped up by some MSM professional worriers today that uses words like “erratic and extreme” to describe that it’s getting rainier in some places, a whole third of the planet in total, except in South America, where it isn’t, and over Russia and the Indian Ocean, where the data was “…voided due to a lack of consistent data.”. And despite the title of the press release, here’s this little speculative nugget from the lead author: “We have not yet looked for direct ties between weather variability and increased carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere, but I would not be surprised if they are connected in some way,” Medvigy said - Erratic, extreme, press release puts Princeton climate science in a new light

The Orange County Register, November 30, 2011: Will a warming planet take a toll on mental health? A recent survey by UC Irvine scientists suggests it might, especially for beachgoers. Hot, crowded days at the beach increase stress levels, while cool beach visits with plenty of elbow room bring a sense of well-being, the study by scientists at UCI's Department of Population Health & Disease Prevention shows. "It was surprising to me that cooler days were associated with improved response to mental restoration," said public health and social ecology professor Oladele Ogunseitan, one of two authors of the study. "In my own mind, it contradicted the conventional wisdom of people going to the beach in droves on very hot, sticky days" - A psychological toll for global warming?

Max Planck Society, December 16, 2011: From shoals of fish to human society: social organisms need to make collective decisions. And it is not always the majority that prevails. In some cases, a small, resolute group may succeed in bending the whole community to their will. Using computer models and behavioural studies of fish, a team of scientists, including researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden, has discovered that uninformed individuals support the decision of the majority and may prevent a particularly determined minority from prevailing over the rest. For a democratic society, this means that individuals who are undecided need not necessarily present a risk to the democratic decision-making process; on the contrary, they can offer protection against the dominance of a small but strong-willed group - Following the crowd supports democracy: The majority can benefit when individuals are uninformed

Noen vil kanskje hevde at Norge og Japan hadde kommet mye dårligere ut hvis totalitære idealstater som Nord-Korea hadde blitt inkludert i undersøkelsen:

    University of Michigan, December 21, 2011: New research from the University of Michigan suggests obesity can be seen as one of the unintended side effects of free market policies. A study of 26 wealthy nations shows that countries with a higher density of fast food restaurants per capita had much higher obesity rates compared to countries with a lower density of fast food restaurants per capita. "It's not by chance that countries with the highest obesity rates and fast food restaurants are those in the forefront of market liberalization, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, versus countries like Japan and Norway, with more regulated and restrictive trade policies," said Roberto De Vogli, associate professor in the U-M School of Public Health, and lead researcher of the study - Supersized market economy, supersized belly: Wealthier nations have more fast food and more obesity

University of Connecticut, January 11, 2012: An extensive research misconduct investigation has led the University of Connecticut Health Center to send letters of notification to 11 scientific journals that had published studies conducted by a member of its faculty. Dipak K. Das, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Surgery and director of the Cardiovascular Research Center, was at the center of a far-reaching, three-year investigation process that examined more than seven years of activity in Das’s lab. [...] Das had gained attention in recent years for his work into the beneficial properties of resveratrol, which is found in red wine - Scientific Journals Notified Following Research Misconduct Investigation

Technology Review, January 23, 2012: The idea that our universe is embedded in a broader multidimensional space has captured the imagination of scientists and the general population alike. This notion is not entirely science fiction. According to some theories, our cosmos may exist in parallel with other universes in other sets of dimensions. Cosmologists call these universes braneworlds. And among that many prospects that this raises is the idea that things from our Universe might somehow end up in another - How Neutrons Might Escape Into Another Universe

Flinders University, February 7, 2012: Climate change models must be reworked in a bid to save some of the world’s smallest and slimiest creatures from extinction, a Flinders University PhD candidate warns. Biological Sciences postgraduate student Coraline Chapperon says any future policies for global warming must consider mobile organisms on rocky beaches – such as snails – and their capacity to survive the predicted rise in extreme conditions such as heatwaves. She said the majority of current global warming research is mistakenly driven by air temperature which does not reflect the body temperature of most animals. [...] To prove how crucial individual animal body temperatures are to global warming policies, Ms Chapperon has spent the past three years investigating the temperature and behaviour of snails and their ability to cope in extreme conditions - Global warming could kill off snails

ScienceNordic, March 11, 2012: No, this is not 1 April – and this is not an April Fool’s hoax. Mad as it may sound, Danish researchers have announced a theory that may not only explain why people all over the world are getting fatter and fatter, but also warn of the serious consequences for life on Earth of continued pollution of the atmosphere by CO2 emissions. In itself, the theory is quite simple: CO2 contributes to making us fat - New theory: CO2 makes you fat

Tråden heter søppelvitenskap/pseudovitenskap/junk science, ikke bare pseudovitenskap. Jeg vet ikke hva OP konkret hadde i tankene, men en ting er sikkert: teorien om AGW har medført kanalisering av store pengemengder til forskning innenfor dette relativt snevre forskningsfeltet*. Det er utvilsomt en del PhDer der ute som utelukkende blir til fordi midlene fantes** og hypotesen kunne kjedes til AGW/CO2/GW.

* I større eller mindre grad på bekostning av andre forskningsområder, avhengig av om politikerne velger å ta flere penger fra skattebetalerne eller ikke.
** Mer spesifikt: pro-AGW-politikere tok pengene fra skattebetalerne og fordelte dem til sine AGW-relaterte prosjekter.

Så forskningen blir ugyldig fordi du ikke liker eller ser poenget med det de forsker på?

Politikerne har ikke egne forskningsprosjekter. Politikerne bevilger midler til forskningsprosjekter. Det er to forskjellige ting.

Jeg ser ingen kommentar fra QIQrrr på hva han mener er galt her. Er det galt med hypoteser og teorier i vitenskapen? Skal forskerne spørre QIQrrr om lov før de forsker på noe eller tester hypoteser?

Leste du det jeg skrev? Søppelvitenskap og pseudovitenskap er ikke det samme.
Politikerne har ikke egne forskningsprosjekter. Politikerne bevilger midler til forskningsprosjekter. Det er to forskjellige ting.

Det ville hjelpe veldig hvis du gjorde en innsats for å forstå hva folk skriver til deg, i stedet for å lese enhver setning 100% bokstavelig og finne noe du kan bruke til å komme med et standpunkt som er diametralt motsatt. Jeg vet selvsagt at de fleste politikere ikke forsker selv. Tvert imot, flere norske toppolitikere har knapt bestått videregående. Når jeg skriver "til sine AGW-relaterte prosjekter" mener jeg at de sørger for at pengene kanaliseres til klimaforskning som de senere kan bruke til å score politiske poeng og stemmer på (og som i mange tilfeller ender opp som bensin på AGW-bålet).
