Article: WARNING: wild extrapolation (a classification system for science news)
The Guardian (UK) has a great science section with articles, commentaries, and blogs. The science articles are generally well-written, informative, and unbiased. On the other hand, the paper is a very left-wing, British newspaper and web site. As such, some topics are very much biased. For example global warming is a fact, and anthropogenic climate change must be dealt with now (and dealt with by increasing government regulation, taxation, and subsidies).
This article is a fun read for people generally interested in the increasing flood of science articles.
