Irregular Climate podcast: episode 5

Posted on 26 June 2010 by John Cook

Irregular Climate has posted Episode 5. iTunes users, grab the podcast here. Everyone else, you can listen to the podcast on the web. Some of the topics:

  • They discuss the PNAS paper Expert credibility on climate change (Anderegg 2010) which we blogged about earlier this week. It's an interesting listen, discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the paper.
  • Next, they examine the responses to the PNAS paper.
  • They look at how Mike Hulme was quoted out of context (blogged by John Bruno here), exploring IPCC processes and the nature of consensus.
  • Sperm whale poop
  • For my skeptic debunk of the week, I touch on the PNAS paper briefly but also look at the broader picture of scientific consensus.

And much more...
