HuffPost Science Off to a Good Start


Yes, I am well aware of skeptics of The Huffington Post, especially in coverage of science, medicine and technology. Skepticism is a healthy process in science. So let’s look at the facts.

Below is a list of some of the first posts on the new Science section in The Huffington Post – and, in case you were not aware, writers at HuffPost are by invitation only.

I invite you to explore this site! While some may disagree with the writer’s interpretations or conclusions, they would be hard pressed to challenge their credentials.
