    • Anthony Watts, Watts Up With That

    The “uncertainty monster” strikes again We’ve been highly critical for some time of the paper in summer 2015 by Karl et al. that claimed “the pause” or hiatus went away once “properly adjusted” ocean surface temperature data was applied to the global surface temperature dataset. Virtually everyone in the climate skeptic community considers Karl et al. little more than a sleight of hand. […]

  • This Isn’t A March For Science — This Is About Economic And Political Policy

    • Date: 17/04/17
    • Tim Worstall, Forbes

    The complaint which is driving the ‘March for Science’ isn’t about an attack on science at all. Far from it, it’s one group of scientists not understanding that the policy they advocate is, by the scientific experts in the policy, considered to be a bad one which should be replaced.  “Let’s be clear: the work […]

    In this blog, I will examine the hypothesis that blogs are, on average, of higher quality than journal articles. Below, I present 5 arguments in favor of this hypothesis. 1. Blogs have Open Data, Code, and Materials When you want to evaluate scientific claims, you need access to the raw data, the code, and the materials. Most […]

  • Warm Winter: U.S. Climate Prediction Center Makes A Wrong La Nina Prediction

    So much for a cold winter. Despite predictions of a colder, snowier season in the northern U.S. from the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center, the winter of 2016 to 2017 proved anything but. “It was half right,” National Weather Service Meteorologist Eric Ahasic said of the long-range forecast.“It was colder and snowier than normal in eastern […]

  • Eugenics: When Scientific Consensus Leads To Mass Murder

    • Date: 10/04/17
    • Ross Pomeroy, RealClearScience

    Eugenics, the notion of improving the genetic quality of the human race through selective breeding, is a dark stain upon science’s past. It is a prime example of how science can be misused to support nefarious ends. Eugenics is most commonly associated with Nazi Germany, where poor, mentally ill, blind, deaf, developmentally disabled, promiscuous, homosexual, and […]

    Despite widespread denial among climate activists, a growing number of scientific research papers in recent months have confirmed the global warming hiatus, trying to explain its possible reasons (for the latest studies see here, here and here).  The latest study claims that the Southern Ocean played a critical role in the global warming slowdown. The post-2002 global surface […]

King said the government overestimated the effectiveness of its programs to encourage diesel vehicles. King was the U.K.’s chief scientific adviser from 2000 to 2007 and until recently a special representative […]
