Ho ho ho.
Ho ho ho.
Scientists have my trust when they do solid science. PACE etc is not solid science - so it doesn't have my trust.
Good to know the SMC are committed to fighting fake news. Let's hope they include their own back catalogue in their quest to root it out.
Sadly, no option to comment on the article.
PACE was not science, it was a story, propaganda.
It says 17% of people believe politicians tell the truth - wow!!! (it would imply the population is 17% goldfish)
I was going to tweet that it was an appalling attack on what Jenny Rohn wrote, until I saw her tweet:
Now that's chutzpah.
"the Science Media Centre exists to counter misleading reporting of science"
hmm, and who is there to counter the SMC s misleading reporting of 'science'(?)
Is this a call for scientists to fight unsubstantiated SMC claims? No?
Well, right about now, I'm wishing that my family had more severely questioned the "science" that said that margarine was healthier for you than butter.
Based on those findings, my family dutifully switched to trans fat laden margarine in the early 1970's.
Fortunately, the error was discovered, science corrected itself, and artificial trans fats were banned from all edible products in the US... 78 days ago.
Years behind Europe. The message was out in the 80s. It takes time for society to wake up.
