Scientific journals are still credible

I see my name in a “Guest Column” from the July 9 Monitor where my friend Don Peterson writes about troubling aspects of the global warming issue.

His approach is different from the past in that, instead of discussing the science, he impugns editors of scientific journals.  Here he treads on dangerous ground.  For, if journal editors can be found to have purposefully rejected scientific papers simply because they do not agree with their opinions, where would it all end?  Once we come to believe that journal editors do this for global warming, we must logically decide that they will do it for all science.
