• Polar bear extinction scare based on dodgy assumptions and statistical conjecture

    • Date: 11/09/21
    • Susan Crockford, Polar Bear Science

    The latest extinction scare is based on meaningless number-crunching without relevance to the real world of polar bears. A new paper published today deals with an animal conservation issue I’ve addressed twice before: the theoretical assumption that loss of genetic diversity must be detrimental to species survival despite there being little evidence that this has been the […]

    Naomi Oreskes’s book has been described as a defense of science, but it is nothing of the sort. The cornerstone of her thinking is total consensus determining truth in the natural world. Her approach is a scorched earth epistemology. Why Trust Science?By Naomi Oreskesreviewed by Christopher Essex 1. Science and the Oscars I write this […]

  • A new crisis for climate science?

    • Date: 03/08/21
    • Steven Hayward, Power Line

    Last week Science published a remarkable article — remarkable for implicitly ratifying what climate “skeptics” have been saying about climate models for at least a decade, namely, that they are running “too hot.” We are just weeks away from the two major climatista jamborees of 2021. The first is the UN COP 26 meeting in Glasgow next […]

    Leading climate scientists conceded that models used to estimate how much the world will warm with rising levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are running too hot. “It’s become clear over the last year or so that we can’t avoid this,” Gavin Schmidt, director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, told Science ­magazine.

    Reef-scientists often claim that coral bleaching is a new phenomenon that only started in the 1970’s due to climate change. But a remarkable new paper published by Tomas Cedhagen, of Aarhus University in Denmark has uncovered a very early lithograph showing bleaching in 1862. But back to bleaching. There are actually many other early observations […]

  • Gas giants’ energy crisis solved after 50 years

    • Date: 23/06/21
    • Quanta Magazine

    Jupiter and Saturn should be freezing cold. Instead, they’re hot. Researchers now know why. Living as they do in the distant, sun-forsaken reaches of the solar system, Jupiter and Saturn, the gas giants, and Uranus and Neptune, the ice giants, were always expected to be frosty realms. But when NASA’s Voyager spacecraft sailed past them […]

    • Sky News Australia

    Physicist and author Peter Ridd says just about every area of the Great Barrier Reef – according to the statistics – “has completely recovered” since the 2016 bleaching event and is in “no danger”. “The area which was hit by the 2016 bleaching has completely recovered; every area except one has got above average coral […]

    In this short but important essay, Patrick Michaels, himself the target of campaigns by politically motivated colleagues, reviews the successful campaign by left-wing extremists to force those on the right of politics out of universities. He paints a pessimistic picture of the future of US academia, warning that it risks becoming irrelevant. The essay can […]
