"A Call to Judge Based on Relevant Facts and Assessment, Not the Odd Opinion" - Getting this right is pretty important considering all that is at stake and the cost of waiting. It's about the economy and the costs in human terms. Let's stop playing games by quoting random "scientists" and start asking the media to qualify statements from "scientists" by asking if the opinion was peer-reviewed.
