-- Mobile Team Note --

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another brief summary of efforts of Cornell's Mobile IBWO Search Team here:

http://audubonmagazine.org/fieldnotes/fieldnotes0707-webexclusives.html

Martjan Lammertink remains "cautiously optimistic" but won't be part of the field team next season, opting instead to spend his time re-assessing all the data collected so far. There will be a team however, and it will resume exploring in December; no hint here where, besides the Congaree, efforts will be concentrated (it likely hasn't even been determined yet). In spite of cynics' efforts to derail it, the scientific process marches forward.

"the scientific process marches forward"

isn't this more accurately the pseudoscientific process?

The CLO bigshots are smart enough to know they goofed but not ethical enough to admit it yet.

no

"The CLO bigshots are smart enough to know they goofed but not ethical enough to admit it yet."

and you would know that by... ESP???
 
"The CLO bigshots are smart enough to know they goofed"

I infer this from changes to their website and in the tone of their public statements. I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt by assuming they have some understanding of the curret situation. Is it possible that they still actually believe? Their removal of "found" and "the rediscovery" from their website would suggest otherwise.
