    Is there any kind of legal backing for scientific debate? It seems fraudulent employee behavior is in the cross-hairs, while scientific debate is allowed in

      Is there any kind of legal backing for scientific debate? It seems fraudulent employee behavior is in the cross-hairs, while scientific debate is allowed in "good faith."  Support for science is not balanced legally against voluminous bodies of fraud law.
      Or is it?  I plead ignorance.
      Soviet-like, yes, but also very, very American.  It also reflects McCarthyism. Large, complex state perceives threat -- circles wagons.

      For those who might have missed this: Virginia's attorney general has
      launched an investigation of a leading climate scientist who, until a few
      years ago,taught at the UVA

      It seems that any scientist who comes to conclusions incompatible with the
      right wing worldview now has to worry about his/or research being
      the victim of a politically motivated witch hunt. Not all that different
      from the old Soviet Union it seems.
