I saw it coming. Politics gets into anything, it makes lies. With politics, science can be the greatest "Lie Generator" because science is respected far beyond it's fallibility. Science isn't finished being corrupted by politics. When the Roman Catholic Church was respected (through fear), they had politics come and make it even worse than it was. The same thing is happening now with science.
EDIT: The same thing! Fear is causing people to succumb to the efforts of politics: Global Warming, Ozone Holes, etc. Not yet the great Inquisitions of the RCC of old, but theories of great harm if the people do not succumb to more control over themselves.
