Lysenko believed plants and seeds could be acclimated to extreme elements, whereupon the offspring would be resistant. His ideas became the official dogma of Russian botany. Russian scientists who disagreed were ostracized, imprisoned, or executed. The Russian people suffered many crop failures and other privations for this. This pairing of false science with government control is known as Lysenkoism. Today, Lysenkoism is alive and well in climate science. Just as with Lysenko's false botany, governments have embraced climate alarmism. Skeptics have been ostracized but not yet fined or imprisoned.
