"...many literature reviews nowadays consist of pseudo-random lists of papers related to the problem domain of interest, followed by a statement of what was done in the current paper. No direction.

“The official records vary slightly because of subtle differences in the way we analyze the data,” said Reto Ruedy, climate scientist at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies. “But they also agree extraordinarily well.”
