default position … “loss of trust”

Another one ‘rocks the boat’, or in this case the orthodoxy enviro journals. This is my default position, and has been for some time, but I could not have said it so well.

Welcome to the club, Jim Bouldin, Bishop Hill reports: Quote of the day, Nature edition

My default position toward Nature…at least for earth and environmental science papers, has shifted from innocent until proven guilty, to roughly the opposite. I just don’t believe what they claim until I’ve read the paper involved closely, and since I don’t have time to do that, that means I basically don’t accept what they claim. I’ve just seen too much bad science and I don’t trust them to be fully objective and place scientific veracity over hype and headline. Sorry.
