    • International Business Times

    A study by the University of York found evidence for a period of enhanced pre-industrial sea-level rise of about 2-3 millimetres per year in three locations — Nova Scotia, Maine and Connecticut, which were largely natural, without any human constructions or man-made factors. These three locations are partly related to the North Atlantic Oscillation – […]

  • ‘Consensus’ Science & Risk Aversion Threatens Scientific Stagnation

    • Date: 26/02/20
    • National Review

    A new paper sheds light on how the U.S. science community discourages innovation. During the Cold War, when rivalry between the capitalist West and communist East shaped international affairs, nonaligned countries were labeled as Third World. A rather vague designation, it came to denote low-income countries with weak states and institutions. When the Soviet Union fell, […]

  • No Raw Data, No Science: Another Possible Source Of The Reproducibility Crisis

    • Date: 21/02/20
    • Miyakawa, T. No raw data, no science: another possible source of the reproducibility crisis. Molecular Brain 13, 24 (2020)

    I propose that a lack of raw data or data fabrication is another possible cause of irreproducibility. Abstract: A reproducibility crisis is a situation where many scientific studies cannot be reproduced. Inappropriate practices of science, such as HARKing, p-hacking, and selective reporting of positive results, have been suggested as causes of irreproducibility. In this editorial, […]

    Several Skeptical Science team members have contacted me by email in the past hours with vaguely sinister but eminently deniable threats. I expect they will come after this column next. And if you hear that I have left academia, like Judith Curry, you’ll know why. A climate advocacy group called Skeptical Science hosts a list of academics that it […]

    Earth could face frosty weather and biting snow storms over the next 30 years as an ominous “solar minimum” grips the planet, a scientist has warned. Fortunately, it’s not all doom and gloom – other experts believe that a Grand Solar Minimum will have little effect on our climate. The cold snaps – caused by […]
