scientific writing

I read scientific articles for a living. They are frequently needlessly complex and have a stilted style about them. Evidently, communication through the written word is not part of scientists’ training. It should be.
Scientific writing could use an English major Which is worse, stupidity or malignant intent? Hype and alarmism hype’s evil twin in today’s scientific enterprise. A bright, refreshing wine with a bit of a smoky aftertaste – from the nearby wildfires.
