(genomeweb.com): The current system of research publication is "antiquated" and "hindering" science, and it's time to make the results of scientific studies openly available to everyone. Despite the fact that a lot of research is federally funded, much of it is only available through journals that require a paid subscription. "Why should taxpayers have to pay twice to have access to science?"

But climate change seems to have reached the point where even some apparent facts have become points of contention, and at least some reporters have become comfortable with simply making things up and ascribing their imaginings to credible scientific sources. Apparently fed up with similar practices in editorials produced by Canada's National Post, a climatologist has now sued the publisher for libel and defamation.
