Framing Science

This is the current post at Realclimate. Journalists are hopelessly led around by interest groups promoting a false skepticism by using gray propaganda to create an atmosphere of total uncertainty, and thus negate a need for action on global warming. Those doing this are industry lobbyists with a vested interest in the outcome. As sources this is a conflict of interest, but the need of a reporter to get a speaking voice from both sides in a story leads to a false equivalency in the story. This is wrong and makes a bad press and even worse policy. Both fail.
