The demise of the reputation of the scientific community is imminent.
So many "niche" biologists and poorly-trained environmentalists have become so emotionally involved in their "research" that they have lost sight of reason, a fundamental skill of a good scientist. Their poor decisions, their prejudice and their deliberate avoidance of peer review is creating an image of a community of "mad scientists" in the minds of the population at large.
Patrick, I'm beginning to change my mind on this guy's posting; and I apologize to you for giving him credibility...I was thinking of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six--given how prescient his Debt of Honor was about the modus operandi of the 9-11 attacks...
At the time I wrote to you last night I hadn't seen the posts indicated he hijacked your ping list.
That's double plus ungood.
And the later posts here definitely smell of troll...
