Words of Wisdom

No one really believes that the “science is settled” or that “the debate is over.”  Scientists and others that say this seem to want to advance a particular agenda.  There is nothing more detrimental to public trust than such statements.

A pro-GW post from Dr. Judith Curry, lifted from Watts Up with That. 

Recently, I received a comment that he was surprised that I, occasionally, post pro-GW pieces even though I am a "lukewarmer" (see Dr. Curry's piece for a definition). I am pleased to provide quality scientific information regardless of source or the author's political stances.

I usually post more on the skeptical side because so much of the pro-GW "science is settled" rhetoric is so over the top or outright misinformed (yes, Sen. Boxer, it is still summer in Brazil and will be for nearly another month), plus media coverage is quite biased toward the pro-GW side.
