    wow! pretty explicit. the new paradigm is being replaced with the old one! real science is winning the day and crap secretive science is being herded into a smaller and smaller circle.

    my hat is off to Steve McIntyre and others of his ilk for refusing to take NO! for an answer.

    of course all this has been said before but now it is actually being written up, examples acknowledged, expectations stated.

    This However -- worries me greatly.. Because the very folks abusing the ethics may now be trying to COOPT the term for their own agenda..

    OEC - Climate Change Educational Partnership (CCEP)

    The "online ethics" organization going to grade schools to discuss "global warming"?? A joint project with the NAScience? Hmmmmmm... Are we gonna encourage data juggling and selective editing of data in the name of ethics??

    I love your new sig. I know a few people who think the worst of other folks only because it is something they would do.
