A few things that caught my eye this last week.
Actually this past week was a virtual firehouse of interesting analyses and material, unfortunately I am short on time and can’t do much in the way of analysis. I’ve pulled a number of articles to include in future main posts. I hope you will find these articles interesting.
Fabius Maximus has an article Cutting to the heart of the public policy debate on climate change, that picks up on themes raised in my recent ‘absence of evidence’ post.
Bloomberg has an article Scare tactics fail climate scientists and everyone else.
Another excellent rant: A Long Rant on the Politicization of Science.
Keith Kloor responds to the lynching of RP Jr with A Climate Mob.
Cli-fi gets a plug in this NYTimes article Using the arts to teach how to prepare for climate crisis.
JoNova has a post Journal admits Lewandowsky paper retracted because it failed twice.
From Sowell’s Law blog: Are climate skeptics legally liable for criminal negligence?
Here’s one for Uncertain T. Monster: Rethinking fat: the case for adding some into your diet.
Matt Briggs in CBSnews.com: Ivy league statistician debunks NASA funded ‘socialism or extinction’ study.
Nature has an article Streamline IPCC reports.
As a preview of what we can expect from the forthcoming WG3 Report: U.S. sees danger UN may overstate costs of global warming fight.
JC note: This week I am in Boulder CO to participate in the Conference on World Affairs. The panels I will serve on are listed [here]. Of particular interest, I will be giving a talk on Friday entitled Climate Change: It’s About the Data. The discussant for my talk is Kevin Trenberth. That should be interesting!
