“Alarmists”? Not so much.

Dan’s Wild Wild Science Journal–  Very interesting comments from Naomi Oreskes about an apparent conservative bias among scientists. I don’t mean that politically- I mean that they are likely to downplay the extreme when it comes to the results of their research. This runs very counter to the claims of many “skeptics” of climate science (or any environmental science that reaches conclusions they don’t like) that scientists are alarmists who often make mountains out of molehills.
