U.S. Scientists Say They Are Told to Alter Findings

Crisis of Conscience

I have some serious issues with cost-benefit analysis. Things like this reinforce my view that we might be better served if we engaged in a little less quantifying of things just for the hell of it and instead tried to fully understand scientific issues before we go asking the ignorant masses how much they'd be willing to pay to preserve environmental resources for which they can't even comprehend the benefits.
