It was an Murdoch controlled paper editorial, they didn't write it, they signed it.

Engineering is applied science, engineers are not considered scientists, but nice try. You might want to check your facts, because now you look like you really don't know what you are talking about.

Where's that pipeline coming from again? Bigger oops!!
