One might wonder about the conflicts of interest involved in inviting researchers to collaborate in a project that involves a critique of their work. E.g. would they treat us as collaborators or rivals.

But such potential conflicts of interest and "competitor-risks" nothwithstanding, I still think that such a collaboration is worth attempting. It has the greatest potential for substantial interchange of ideas, and it is consistent with the practice of conducting science in the open -- which is especially needed in a time of environmental crisis.
