Lomborg Rebuked by Danish Government: Bjorn Lomborg has been officially censured by a committee of Danish scientists. They claim his work is bad science, but have little to base that on. Mainly that his book is not reviewed enough to be officially science, and too popular in format. Readers might think it is science, and we can't have that.

A good summary of the situation by Nick Schulz is here.

The idea of a government panel censuring honest science is rather frightening. I wonder how many European countries have this sort of thing?
