[Coral-List] Trust peer-reviewed articles rather than the press

Richard Dunne should trust peer-reviewed articles rather than the press, 
especially newspapers which have a poor scientific record.

climatefeedback.org has analysed Ben Webster’s article “Scientists 
are exaggerating carbon threat to marine life” in The Times. It 
estimated its overall scientific credibility to be ‘very low’. The 
analysis should be published later today. I will send the link when it 
will become available.

Also note that the scientist quoted in this article, Howard Browman, 
claims that Webster quoted him in a misleading way. Finally, the issue 
discussed, ocean acidification, is distinct from “global warming”. 
Both just share the same cause (the rise in atmospheric CO2).
