Naugthy academics, again

Via Kieran Healy: Shameful saga of an academic who writes "reviews" of his own books on, and gets caught ! More interestingly, this was not the first time!

George Monbiot has an op-ed in today's Hindu: Junk science sources (you can also find a better version, with references, in his blog). He recounts another sordid saga of a powerful scientist, who quotes junk science and gets caught.
