I had the opportunity to meet Michael Fumento on a recent trip to Washington DC. I found him as knowledgeable in person as on paper. Here is an example, in which Fumento describes how science journals are being politicized.
This seems a real problem to me. At least on the issues in which I am involved, “science” is becoming merely another special interest that uses the same spin and jive techniques as other political movements. If this continues, it will corrode science at its core.
Fumento is right to be concerned. I will be writing increasingly on this issues in the coming months.
