This last bit "make the evidence up" is done with "scientific" models
- often retrospective data curve fitting - and this is the problem
they (govt paid "Scientist"s) have at the moment, their nice hockey
stick curves (from the 1980s?) were modelled perfectly for the data,
to fit the desired "scientific" outcome, and now the new data doesn't
fit the desired hockey stick outcome, so ridiculous "scientific"
explanations are trotted out, from "a global pause in global warming"
to "important data points not previously included in the model" and
other hogwash pseudo-"science" designed to regenerate the hockey

It's political bullshit, not science. They know it. We know. Anyone
self respecting adherent to the actual scientific method knows it.
But a lot of propaganda to the contrary of the scientific methods is
identifying religious nuts to the discerning, which from one view is
a public service - just not worth anywhere near the "public"
theft-money spent on such "science" propaganda.
