"Government Corruption of Science"

Andy May

Thursday, Jan 20, 2021

Streamed Via ZOOM!


What is Weather vs. Climate ? What about a Theory vs. a Model ? What is Science ? Can there be any unbiased research sponsored by government or industry? No easy answers.  

Federal money often allows unelected and protected civil service bureaucrats to control scientific research. Dictating the projects and outcomes is not Science. Bureaucrats want scary predictions from scientists that they can use to gain power, prestige, and importance - and then use our tax money to pay for them. Private research is derided as biased, even though every government bureaucrat also has an agenda.


Guest Speaker: Andy May - is a writer, blogger, and author living in The Woodlands, Texas. He enjoys golf and traveling in his spare time. He earned a B.S. in Geology from the University of Kansas and retired from a 42-year career in petrophysics in 2016, following employment with Exxon, Kerr-McGee, Devon Energy and Kinder-Morgan. Andy is an editor for the popular climate change blog where he has published numerous posts. He is the author of three books and the author or co-author of seven peer-reviewed papers on various geological, engineering and petrophysical topics.

Let's be friends

Our ASME South Texas LinkedIn Group is growing!  We continue to build our membership on today's hottest Professional Network.  We are looking for a few people who would be interested in becoming Admins to help with keeping the site up to date with informative articles on Mechanical Engineering here in Houston. This is a great way to become involved and connect with other ASME members in the Houston Area. 


We are here to help with all your ASME and engineering related questions. Feel free to reach out to us on Social Media :
