...and here we are: a new article on spiegel-online, written by Hans von Storch, Richard Tol, and Roger Pielke jr.:
A clear statement by three influential scientists and active bloggers: they advise Pachauri to resign; and they suggest a fundamental reconsideration of the IPCC process.
This makes my former entry almost look pretty old. Of course, at least these three scientists fully agree with the previous spiegel-online article. I am really stunned: the answer to my question is not on this blog, but on spiegel-online. The boundaries between science, science blogs and media are permeable and porous. The media are integral part of the scientific process, as science is an integral part of politics.
Did you ever wonder about the relation between science, politics, media and the public? It is not about separating them again and confining them to their respective fields; instead, we follow the process, breathlessly.
