    The one thing that seems most absent in their (LU) examples
    is the scientific consensus. Please see

    Nature 412, 112 - 114 (12 July 2001)

    The National Academy of Science is likely to have its
    own inherent problems and agendas. However, when they
    agree there is a problem, I suspect there probably is.
