Have any science journalists attempted to confirm the Heathrow protestors' claim that they were "armed with peer-review science"?


I didn't hear the interview and she is clearly dim but does that make her actions wrong? I suspect the Today programme interviewer knows about as much science as she does which is depressing but an increasingly common situation.

I don't know if you have seen Richard Dawkin's TV programme 'Enemies of Reason' recently which is hilarious, poingnant and arrogant in equal measure. Our thinking and speech is full of contridictions, some more than others, but it's a litte harsh to single her out for her misunderstanding of the word 'carbon'. She is far from alone. Perhaps the Today programme is trying to pull in that all important yoof audience.
