Predatory science journals pivot to video – Ottawa Citizen

More BS things to make it even harder for the uninformed to spot fake science and charlatans.

Things like these fake journals should be illegal and those who use them to advance their careers or push bogus ideas need to be called out in very public ways so others with similar ideas rethink their plans.

These fake science publishers make it so difficult to persuade paranoid anti vaxxers that the BS claims of discredited quacks like Wakefield are wrong. That real science and real scientists believe that the facts say global climate change is real. That political BS about it being a sham is just partisan political propaganda propped up by monied interests that stand to lose if a shift away from petro-chemical reliance takes place.

They make the world a worse place. They foster idiots and their idiotic notions and, because they don’t understand real science, well intentioned mommy bloggers and activists push quackery thinking they have science on their side.

About xamble

Most things I do involve computers. Nowadays that sounds stupid to hear because everyone uses computers. Except I was saying that before the IBM PC came on the scene. (hint: my first programs were entered on punch cards in an IBM-29) Now I mostly use them. Mostly to provide a community service in my small town. Because I could when it was asked and still can. And I'm a wannabe writer. Various books in various states of incompleteness. A few short stories. Might do more of that.
