Is it only me or are academics who aren't getting what they want behaving childishly? I know that is shocking. An Associated Press story with the "objective" title that "Scientific Influence Wanes, Research Funding Weakened in Bush Administration, Experts Say", complains that on various issues, apparently for outside government scientists we are talking about Global Warming, the scientists who are predicting the most dire prospects aren't being listened to. Rather than simply admitting that well-informed academics may have different opinions, the claim is that all scientists are simply being ignored. The Union of Concerned Scientists is also not exactly an unbiased source.
