Alexey Guzey on the Business of Science

I wrote my recent piece on global warming in part to show that the business of science is broken. Not the scientific method itself, but how we pay for and get science, mostly in academia. Alexey Guzey has a very good thought piece on this that I hope you’ll read. Among other things, he points out that peer review is a farce. People argue with me about peer review, but they don’t bring data or an outside perspective, they just assume it works. Having looked into it, I assume it is mostly hijacked to serve the agenda of a small group in every domain of inquiry. Read Alexey’s piece and explore his web site:
