3. Here we go again.
Edited on Sat Apr-30-11 09:06 AM by Buzz Clik
Alternet has given lots of ink to Huber, and very little attention to the growing number of research institutions who are refuting his claims. So, Huber writes another letter, and Alternet is back in business.

Consider this contradiction:

From the first page of the article: "While his first letter described research that was not yet complete or published, his second letter cited much more evidence about glyphosate and genetically engineered crops based on studies that have already been published in peer-reviewed journals."

This states that Huber is making his case by citing a lot of published literature. But, here comes this at the end of the article:

"But there is already a major story here: the lack of independent research on GMOs, the reluctance of U.S. journals to publish studies critical of glyphosate and GMOs, and the near total silence from the media on Huber's leaked letter."

Well, which is it? Does Huber have published evidence support his claims, or is there a conspiracy to keep critical data out of the literature? It simply cannot be both.

This is the problem with taking your case to the popular media before vetting it in the scientific arena. Huber knows this but went forward with it anyway. Makes you wonder why.
