SkS Weekly Digest #16

SkS Highlights

The SkS author team went into high gear this week defending the integrity of SkS from a baseless criticism leveled by Dr. Roger Pielke Sr. on his blog site. The context of this unfortunate episode is documented in Dana's excellent article, One-Sided 'Skepticism'.

Although his blog site does not allow comments , Pielke did post comments on the thread to Dana's article. Included in Pielke's comments is the following  statement about Anthony Watts:

"I have worked with Anthony and he is devoted to the highest level of scientific robustness."

Toon of the Week



"It is the nature of the human species to reject what is true but unpleasant, and to embrace what is obviously false but comforting." H. L. Mencken
