The report was published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society. Using accepted scientific techniques, 116 scientists from around the world calculated whether the odds of the extreme weather events were increased by global warming. They based their calculations on observed data, understanding of the physics of the climate and computer simulations — techniques that the National Academy of Sciences said were valid earlier this year.The NAS says bullshit is valid science, therefore all bullshit is now science. We don't only have fake news, we have fake science done by fake scientists.
Basically a more complex version of this:
Narrative (fake news) will increase as reality deviates further and further away from the Cathedral's fantasy world. When the Cathedral controls official information, such as getting the CIA to say Russians hacked the election, it can bend reality. When it cannot control the frame, anyone not drinking the Kool-Aid immediately sees the lies. The Cathedral still controls the frame on science, among other topics. Breaking the frame and reality will intrude and cause a psychotic break for Cathedralites.
