Update II. Island of Doubt remarks:
Alan I. Leshner, chief executive officer of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and executive publisher of the journal Science, in an op-ed published in today's Washington Post, excoriates Sarah Palin for her illterate essay, published earlier this week, on the topic of climate change. (Amended citation slightly for style, PNN)And
Why is that people like Leshner should be compelled to respond to people like Palin, when the latter is clearly not in a position to offer informed observations?It must be the widespread notion that anybody is entitled to his opinion, and every opinion has to be treated as if qualifications, or lack thereof, on the topic in no way influence the validity of such an opinion.
