Best Summary of Science, ever

I'm just going to offer a quick link to today's xkcd comic:

The two lines that struck me are the middle section:
In science you can't publish results you know are wrong, and you can't withhold them because they're not the ones you you wanted.
and the rollover text:
You don't use science to show you're right, you use science to become right.
Would Al Gore and the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit please take note.


  1. I wish the politically-motivated climate change denialists would take note.

  2. Yes, indeed, it applies to everyone.
