Alien Exoneration

clipped from

The “exoneration” by Climategate investigations (like Muir Russell) that never bother to talk to skeptics, create an impossible conundrum of having essentially a trial with judge, jury, reporters, spectators, and defendant, but no plaintiff. The plaintiff is locked outside the courtroom sitting in the hall hollering and hoping the jury hears some of what he has to say.

Given this, I thought it valuable to revisit this Cal-Tech lecture on the state of science and consensus by the late Michael Crichton.
