Richard Muller’s ‘BEST’ reports trigger a flood of dueling op-ed pieces, some of which actually make no mention of the studies. What are the lessons for a would-be planetary ‘safety net’?
Physicist Muller’s ‘BEST’ Report Satisfies Few In Reaffirming Validity of Temperature Station Records
‘BEST’ researchers release not-yet-peer-reviewed findings supporting validity of temperature station records and rejecting urban heat island arguments. Climate ‘skeptics,’ having anticipated good news, cry foul … and climatologists long supportive of the evidence wonder, ‘So? What’s New?’
A new Australian site, claiming more than 200,000 readers monthly, combines scientific and journalistic principles to improve public understanding of science, including climate science. This is the first Yale Forum re-posting from The Conversation, which strives for ‘academic rigour, journalistic [...]
