Regarding specific posts that Doug mentions, articles published by lobbying groups with the sole intention of influencing policy, and which disregard the latest science, are touted as "peer-reviewed", and given the same weight as articles based on solid science. Yes, yes.... even "solid science" is biased, the author of those posts will argue, because the authors selected the subject subjectively, and blah, blah, blah.... But the aim of coral-list is not to argue these points and confound the issues, for the sake of just arguing. People have better things to do.
