    Based on the summary of topics provided by these guys, it looks like your typical healthcare/energy/environment debate with the added bonus of grinding an axe for certain policy pressure groups.

    This smells suspiciously like the whole "politicization of intelligence" farce, just substitute Mary McCarthy with James E. Hansen. We're going to pretend that scientists working in government are these incredibly ethical, upright human beings getting dumped on by crooked overseers with nefarious agendas. In the university, this is equivalent to a faculty bashing its administration, public affairs, trustees, alumni and students to its heart content while whining everytime they get bit back.
