Jeffrey Love's Response
It is about circular logic.
Scientists are ignoring new science, because they think it is not published in
the magazines where they publish their own stuff. But because these same
scientists are peer-reviewers of these magazines, they simply block any
Even worse. They will block any science that they do not understand or that
shows problems in their own research.
The way this peer-review system is organized in science is very similar to the "Creation Museum".

According to him, here comes a single sentence proclamation of a magic solution for everything, if we only knew what it was.

Apparently it hasn't occurred to this guy (or maybe it has) that claiming you found the intellectual equivalent of the fountain of youth isn't the same thing as it actually existing, notwithstanding how many cheering acolytes you can sign up beforehand, none of whom have seen what's really behind the curtain.

The more you are invested in a system or way of thinking the more you resist the change.
Power and control, saving face and maintaining funding.
I'm sure many people who are limiting science think they are doing an important job keeping science "pure" or protecting the "good reputation" of science.
There is a story on Andrew Marino's Blog of Philip Handler that discusses the mess of science, actually there are many stories about the mess of science on his blog. Andrew Marino worked with Robert Becker in studying bioelectromagnetics and had run ins with many science power brokers on the effects of unnatural EMFs. Although i warn there is a NSFW (not safe for work) picture with the Philip Handler story but it is worth reading to the end to hear about the dream he had relating to the picture.
