Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
Politics should never play a role in how scientific facts are determined and presented. Yet the so-called "alternative facts" have entered our lexicon from a political stage in the US and scientists around the world are scrambling to secure a voice that articulates what "facts" mean and how they are obtained. In general, science is under attack by politics. Although small and informal in comparison to other scientific organizations around the world, GeoHab is not immune from such attacks and scientists involved with GeoHab need to consider how to keep their organization scientifically pure with a strong voice of creditability. A brief review will be made on how GeoHab got where it is and the beneficial impacts made on the science of habitat and geologic mapping, and examples provided that illustrate the social and civil benefits of the organization and its scientists. A discussion will be made on what we see as the way forward and how GeoHab can put to rest the concept of "alternative facts".
