Ethics in Scientific Inquiry

http://www.economist.com/node/21528593

An excellent article that highlights the imperfections in science.  Like all other fields of human inquiry, science is subject to human error and/or dishonesty.  The GP questions that should be raised include whether we have too much faith in the findings of science and the role of ethical/value systems in scientific inquiry.
Very good as a fresh example in science and tech essays.
