The Truth About Scientific Consensus And Peer Review

One of the main points that the global warming hype crowd (such as just about everyone at the Daily Dead Fish Wrapper - at least those who write about GW) likes to beat to death in their attempts to convince us to ruin our economy is that the science behind the hype is based on consensus. This "consensus" is supposedly among "peer-reviewed" scientists (Sheryl Crow liked to throw that term around quite a bit on her "Stop Global Warming College Tour").

Well, it's time for an education on the truth about peer review. This education is provided in an article written by Robert Higgs, a Senior Fellow in Political Economy for the Independent Institute.
