Being that I've done my own research, am married to a bright, creative, knowledgeable, extremely responsible scientist, and have spent my professional years doing in-depth reporting on the rich research of some of the best and brightest -- and darn well know how to separate the good work from the poor, and the good reporting from the poor.....

OMG..

I stand in awe of your awesomeness...and run-on sentence...

Taubes isn't worth the personal embarrassment


But you used what you see as his track record in the here and now to assume that if these hoped-for studies show data that conflict with his theories, that he'll ignore the data, and thus to speak dismissively of him for what you're sure he'll do in the future....

Errr...no, I didn't.

If he is happy to pony up the research $$bucks without regard to what said research *reveals* then I'm up for it.....and, yes, I have donated because I think it's important..

HAVE YOU !!1! ...whomever *you* might be.
