‘Expert Consensus Reports’ are scientific mumbo jumbo!

THE “EXPERT CONSENSUS REPORT” TECHNIQUE IS TOUTED BY THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES!

expert consensus report 2SO MUCH FOR THE EXPERTISE OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES.

To understand the significance of the National Academy of Science’s  admission, one  simply has to take a close look at the Delphi method of consensus – developed by the private RAND Corporation – and consider whose interests the RAND Corporation was created to serve.

The Delphi method
The Delphi method was developed by the RAND Corporation, the Robber Baron’s private think tank.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Delphi method is a structured communication technique, originally developed as a systematic, interactive forecasting method which relies on a panel of experts. [Item # 1] The experts answer questionnaires in two or more rounds. [Item 2] After each round, a facilitator provides an anonymous summary [Item #3] of the experts’ forecasts from the previous round as well as the reasons they provided for their judgments. Thus, experts are encouraged to revise their earlier answers in light of the replies of other members of their panel. [Item #4] It is believed that during this process the range of the answers will decrease and the group will converge towards the “correct” answer. Finally, the process is stopped after a pre-defined stop criterion (e.g. number of rounds, achievement of consensus, stability of results) and the mean or median scores of the final rounds determine the results. [Item #5]

Delphi is based on the principle that forecasts (or decisions) from a structured group of individuals [Item #6] are more accurate than those from unstructured groups. The technique can also be adapted for use in face-to-face meetings, and is then called mini-Delphi or Estimate-Talk-Estimate (ETE). Delphi has been widely used for business forecasting and has certain advantages over another structured forecasting approach, prediction markets.

Item #1

Who selects the panel of experts? By determining who is an “expert” and by cherry-picking those so-called experts, the final result can be easily rigged.

Item #2

Those who write the questionnaires can also determine the outcome.  It is soooo easy to frame questions that would support your premise and avoid ones that would expose it as faulty.

Item #3

Of course the hand picked facilitator, writes the anonymous summary. This means that the participants are not permitted to see the response of the other so-called experts. The facilitator is free to screen out any responses that don’t support his/her goal and the attendees wouldn’t even know. He/she can then ‘spin’ the summary any way he/she wishes.

Item #4

The ‘experts’ are encouraged to change their position to align with others – that may or may not be as knowledgeable as they are.  This is called ‘group think’. This stage does not include an open discussion, which could increase the general knowledge of the participants, and might convince the group to support an altogether different conclusion.

Item #5

” . . . the process is stopped after a pre-defined stop criterion”! This method allows for the most knowledgeable experts to be silenced and their opinions overridden by the majority of less knowledgeable experts.  And, mean or median results [math scores] can be used to create the illusion of “consensus”, with the input and opinions of the most knowledgeable buried in the process.

Item #6
To convince the public and policymakers that this process produced a valid conclusion/consensus, those that invited or defined the “structured group” generally attach all of the names of the participants to the final report. The inclusion of their names and credentials makes it appear that ‘experts’ agreed with the conclusion . . . and therefore the artificially crafted “consensus” report can be falsely promoted as science-based.

Conclusion
By controlling the following factors, a structured group can be hand-picked and manipulated into seemingly supporting faulty ‘consensus science’:

  • facilitator
  • invitees
  • questionnaires
  • discussion
  • final scores
  • final report

This is the strategy that the National Academy of Science admit they use to create reports and promote whatever garbage they wish as being science-based. One of the most important scientific frauds ever created via the Delphi Technique is CO2 Global warming. Two great efforts to expose how the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was manipulated by the Delphi Technique are:

  2. Each blog post uncovering and then discussing symptoms like evil act after evil act, crisis after crisis has at its core the desire to understand how these things happen, who’s responsible and, ideally, what can be done about it. I would like to propose a shift in our perception that will allow all to focus only on truth. No conjecture.
    Are you ready?……..
    The truth is, this Country was conquered by forces loyal to London with policies inspired by Communist. Utilizing the cloak of the 1863 Lieber code, FDR installed his rival government by stacking the Supreme court which resulted in our law form, Common law, being shelved, not banned or made illegal, shelved, and replaced with the Communist infested American Bar Association designed UCC, Statutory and Administrative Law. This occurred because Congress in the thirties didn’t know how to stop FDR from keeping this Nation under Emergency Powers. They still don’t, or rather don’t care since the Emergency Powers Act has been in force every single day since Roosevelt declared it, through the re-signing of those Emergency powers by every, that’s right, every President since him. Your Constitution is and has been rendered moot for the past 81 straight years. The verifiable facts of this are there for anyone to find but most are lazy so I’ll provide two links I dare anyone to disprove. 81 years of being in a declared state of Bankruptcy and 81 years of shadowy tyrannical rule most will be unable to comprehend.
    Bringing this out of the shadows is the current occupant of the White House who is following through on his promise to fundamentally change this government. They no longer need to continue the charade. 51+% dependent on this government is by design and so is the next logical step in the transformation. The disarming of America already being attempted in CT and MA. Once that is complete, the Jackbooted conquerors can do anything they please. Like Hitler and Stalin, millions will suffer horrifically because the last generation that could stop it, us, didn’t.

    Every item in the column to the right is a mere pimple on the butt compared to the terminal cancer which is the source of all those side issues. Now you have been given the truth. With that comes the inevitable question…..
    Whatcha gonna do about it? If you can comprehend the magnitude of the deception and fear for yourself, family and progeny, you’d best find and befriend the three percent or less of this population also awake.
    Good luck!

    • Thanks.

      I am aware of the permanent state of emergency and have posted several pieces on this topic. Also, on the right side of my web site you will see a link to Senate Report 93-549 which is further documentation.
