The Corruption of the Peer Review Process

One of Hollywood's most committed environmentalists [and that's saying something], Ed Begley, Jr., goes on FOX News to discuss the AGW scandal. He has his talking point down pat and reiterates it over and over -- trust nothing that is not from a "peer reviewed" source. You will be hearing this a lot in the next few weeks as the environmental alarmist interests close ranks. But that misses the point of the whole scandal. The hacked e-mails clearly show that the peer-review process, already badly compromised in both medical and environmental science, had completely broken down. The conspirators were deliberately subverting the process and in this case peer review cannot be trusted. So, don't believe what you hear from Ed Begley, Jr.
