Michael Klein, the gentleman who runs http://sciencefiles.org, today publicly initiated a very interesting challenge of José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission. His introduction to the matter should be self-explanatory:
In a concerted action crossing borders, British and German organisations and scientists dedicated to equity and scientific rigour have joined forces to urge José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, to stop Viviane Reding from making the European Commission the laughing stock of Europe. In a letter signed by scientists and representatives of these British and German organisations, Reding is shown to bend and misrepresent evidence, to seek to manipulate public opinion, and to be unfamiliar with principles like equity and justice, although she’s a Commissioner of Justice.
Michael’s website covers the text of the challenge in both German and English:
The following is a PDF of the English version only:
Michael Klein is to be applauded for this excellent initiative, which we are pleased to support, and we look forward to Mr Barroso’s response.
