Re: Food fights

I suspect the only science news many citizens pay attention to are stories about nutrition and diet. Which sets them up to believe science is, at best, wildly provisional, with scientists (or people presenting themselves as scientists) making dire pronouncements one day only to contradict themselves tomorrow. This has consequences beyond the realm of diet and BMI. Why expect climate science to be any different than food science?
