Levels of Proof as a Measure of Integrity

.. I think you can tell the integrity of a scientist by the level of proof that they require for things that they agree with, versus the level of proof for things they don't agree with.

Tim Kruger, Director of the Oxford Geoengineering Institute, on the BBC Radio 4 Material World program broadcast on Thursday 10th December.

I could see a circular argument here. If I don't agree with something because it hasn't been proven, then, of course, I will require more data than I do for something that has already been proven.
