Concerning your research article "Simultaneously Mitigating Near-Term Climate Change and Improving Human Health and Food Security,"

if your confidence intervals actually drop as low as 10% for your measurements you might as well not report them because what you're basically saying is "we have no idea what this value is and we're making shit up".

Furthermore, if your error interval includes zero, your value is meaningless.

Seriously this is terrible science and I cannot believe it passed peer review.

THE THING ABOUT PEER REVIEW IS

IT'S SUBJECT TO HUMAN PERCEPTIONS

AND ALSO SOMEONE WHO JUST WANTS TO LEAVE AND BEGIN HER VACATION EARLY AND THEREFORE RUBBERSTAMPS SOMETHING, SHE'S SURE SOMEONE ELSE WILL CATCH IT, SHE HAS PLANE TICKETS THAT WILL NOT STALK THEMSELVES

Also seriously?
