George Monbiot is missing the point about Science.

Having been to see Ben Goldacre and been very impressed I thought I might try communicating a bit more with people and talking about “Science”.  Of course I am actually an Engineer but….

This Monbiot person has missed the point.  What matters is the content of the papers.  The results should be independent of the person and the lab: repeatable by others.

The contents of an e-mail server in East Anglia is irrelevant, if the contents of an e-mail server matter then your papers were pretty rubbish in the first place!
