  1. Dear Charles Doswell,

    I very much enjoyed your article on “Government Funding of Science – How it Works”. I will be pointing people in that direction whenever the subject comes up.
    I was missing a debunking of part 2 of the deniers argument – which is that “scientists gets funding for showing that ‘A’ causes ‘B’ “. In reality the peer reviewers would laugh you out of the room for already having made your conclusions. What you, of course, apply for funding for, is to find out the consequences of ‘A’, and from previous research you expect ‘B’, ‘C’ and ‘D’ might happen but don’t know how likely they are. And you always have to allow for unexpected things to come – that is, after all, what research is about.
    Thanks for fighting the fight for reality. It is fascinating and sad, how popular it is nowadays to just declare for facts, what has been freshly pulled out of somebodys grasshole… Sorry, – that was a little graphics. Hope you don’t mind.

    Best wishes,

    Regner Trampedach, Astronomer at JILA/CU Boulder.
