A fascinating and honest account by an insider., 14 Jan. 2013
I found the description of the science behind climate change by a brilliant scientist compelling and well explained. And there is the fascinating and depressing account of how an honest (but initially politically naive) scientist trying to do science in the traditional way (peer reviewed papers in reputable journals with a time scale of years) gets ambushed in the instant media by unscrupulous vested interests employing rhetoric rather than rational argument. It is unfortunate that the scientific establishment did not recognise that in modern times its role explaining itself to the public is as vital as carrying out research in a rigorous manner and this has led to the current messy confusion.
