OBSERVATION OF THE DAY. King Banaian follows up on Recant, or Be Excommunicated with an alert to observers of higher education.
If what Climategate teaches is the inherent flaws of the peer-review process, that would be worth as much as sticking another fork in the hockey stick. It relies on people motivated by professional ethics, people who choose to be academics for a variety of reasons that would make you skeptical of trusting them with your car, let alone with the search for truth.
Too true.
