John Tierney on tainted research

On climate change and beyond: "Conflict-of-interest accusations have become the simplest strategy for avoiding a substantive debate. The growing obsession with following the money too often leads to nothing but cheap ad hominem attacks. ...It's naive to caricature scientific disputes as battles between 'industry' and the 'public interest,' as if bureaucrats and activists didn't have their own selfish interests (and wealthy, powerful allies like trial lawyers)."
