### RealClimate loses

Thanks God, RealClimate.ORG, the propagandistic blog designed to politicize science, a kind of blog that refers to all politically inconvenient scientific results as the "industry-funded misinformation" (which is always banned on their website) lost in both categories of the Deutsche Welle International Weblog Awards 2005, despite their shameless self-promotion and their attempts to increase the number of votes in unfair ways - so similar to their "scientific" methods. And despite the fact that the competing blogs are composed of a much smaller number of authors than RealClimate's "hockey team" of eleven authors.

When I say that they label all politically inconvenient scientific results as "industry-funded misinformation", what I have in mind are these 38 hits on their website. As Joseph Goebbels said, a lie that is repeated 38 times becomes the truth. Imagine that in spite of this river of naive political articles about funding by the "evil" industry that make Fidel Castro look like a moderate conservative in comparison, they define the goal of realclimate.org on their title page as follows:

• ... The discussion here is restricted to scientific topics and will not get involved in any political or economic implications of the science. ...

Haha. Very funny. If climate science were funded by serious industry instead of mostly corrupt left-wing foundations, these guys would be begging on the street.
