Peter Boghossian and James Lindsay exposed the massive corruption in the peer review process by getting many fake academic papers published in what used to be highly credible scientific journals.

The scientific community as a whole is ideologically captured, and we always knew that would happen because the incentive isn't to just discover facts and present them, but to support certain conclusions, like "climate catastrophe".

Nobody is going to fund research into the benefits of global warming. Alarmism is the only thing that can motivate people to empty their pockets and abandon liberty.

Fortunately there is also incentive to not remain corrupted. If scientific journals want to be taken seriously and not regarded like The Enquirer, there's only so much garbage they can carry, otherwise they will create a vacuum in the space of scientific reporting, and nature abhors a vacuum.
