In a conference that took place in Europe this week Sir Peter Gluckman, Chief science adviser of New Zealand´s PM accused scientists of arrogance when they comment on government policy. Of course politicians would be much better off if scientists just showed a conformist like attitude. The conclusion is that for politicians formed in Mr. Trump school the "good scientist" is the one that is always in tone with the official policy. The "fake scientist" is the other one that prefers to think using his own head. The problem is that Sir Peter Gluckman does not have a clean slate that allows him such high horse declarations. He forgot to mention that is a co-author of two papers retracted due to falsified data.
Not surprising the young investigators in those papers took all the blame and the senior researchers came out clean as pure virgins. Still even if senior scientists did not put their hand on that data they are at least morally responsible for failing to instil a culture of research integrity on those young researchers.
