re: #21 LudwigVanQuixote
Meh. I’m anti-death penalty in general, so I can’t really get with you on executing anyone over this.
However, I do think that a lot of the smears of scientists have exceeded libel and slander, frequently.
I also would love for there to be a penalty for any elected or appointed official who made a statement that was scientifically untrue or an outright lie, beginning, of course, with recanting. If you can’t tell the truth or admit mistakes, I don’t see why you should keep your job.
That one will never happen.
