So how do you choose your sources?
Do you look at what the established experts in their fields say?
Do you specifically look at the contrarian view points?
Do you always insist on being able to reproduce results?
or Do you look for sources who say what it is you want to believe?
When it comes the "current scientific viewpoint," similar issues are involved.
Who do you trust? Why do you trust them?
Science affects policy in modern society, so I think everyone needs some good ways to evaluate scientific sources, and sources that report science.
