Dear Chronicle of Higher Education:
You're a respected academic publication. I cannot understand how you can in good conscience host blog posts like Peter Wood's. Even if it's made clear that you wish to provide a space for the open exchange of views, hosting bloggers who are writing ignorantly on basic science in areas of great public importance and flinging unsubstantiated allegations and Glenn Beckish insinuations, including about scientists, tarnishes your academic credibility and is disappointing to see. Bloggers hosted by you should be held to far higher intellectual standards.
