Soviet Science and Climategate


From a half-remembered Open University programme in the late 70's , I bring you this paragon of scientific impartiality and empirical thought , Trofim Denisovich Lysenko , and his eponymous pseudo-science Lysenkoism .

Anti-scientific charlatans manipulating and suppressing data and dissenting views to bolster the machinations of their political masters ?

I wonder why we haven't heard much about him recently ?
