The settled scientific consensus

Summary of IPCC AR5 Summary: One man's best estimate is that same man's refusal to believe his own data.

Heads being filled with slimy mush

John Horgan, @johnhorgan at the Scientific American @sciam blog, poses a moral question regarding Dr. Peter Gleick's recent ethical lapse:Should Global-Warming Activists Lie to Defend Their Cause? When, if ever, is lying justified? I talked about this conundrum this week in a freshmen humanities class, in which we were reading Immanuel Kant on morality.

There are some glaciers apparently melting in Canada. Professor Steven Sherwood, Co-Director of Australia's University of New South Wales Climate Change Research Centre, thinks… Continue reading Get a Clue

A convenient untruth

Consensus isn't science, even if there was a consensus. They call this a consensus?...Certainly there is no consensus at the very top echelons of scientists -- the ranks from which I have been drawing my subjects -- and certainly there is no consensus among astrophysicists and other solar scientists, several of whom I have profiled.… Continue reading A convenient untruth
