The problem today when reading about the results of academic or scientific studies is that the data may be fudged to promote a political agenda. We saw that during the Covid era where government and left-wing advocates cherry picked and/or omitted various information to have their agenda-driven narrative obscure the facts.
We’ve also seen this wobbly “science” utilized by left-leaning groups to convince us that the world is going to end in ten years due to climate change.
The latest claptrap science tries to convince us that climate change has been responsible for more home runs in Major League Baseball. It seems logical that warmer air is less dense and might lead to the ball traveling faster. But a mere hunch is not science. What about all the other variables such as reconfigured ball parks, steroids, improved training and bigger, stronger players?
The study’s agenda-driven author’s hypothesis falls apart when one looks at the fact that home runs in the Japanese league and the NCAA do not show a statistical discrepancy. Oops! Were these leagues playing on a different planet?
