Yep, then I researched the authors credentials and reputations.
In case you have further doubts or questions, I have a degree in EE which included in depth courses in chemistry and materials science. For the last 28 years I've been in the chemical business buying, selling and trading with many of the major petrochemical companies including Shell, Exxon, BASF, Dow, Dupont to name a few. So I am not exactly an extremist, anti technology, anti fossil fuels fringe group wacko and do have a bit of first hand exposure to the technical side of things. So yea, I can read a scientific paper and only have to get out the dictionary for the really long words.
