No such thing as settled science
Re: “Ottawa flip flops on science,” Editorial, July 2.
Indeed facts can be problematic—perhaps you would care to identify the Harper agenda you refer to amongst other things and, if you were to look at the topic in the cold light of day, scientific research continues to be decidedly selective in their choice of statistics to support their findings which problematic at best.
Need I remind you that there is no such thing as “settled science” as all too many, obviously including yourselves, would have us believe.
Your closing paragraph “If we don’t know how mismanaged and mistreated the environment is, then we won’t have to lie awake worrying”—what drivel—believe the only thing keeping you awake at nights is dreaming up more hyperbole in support of the Black Press agenda.
