Czech translation of Scientific Guide to the 'Skeptics Handbook'

A Scientific Guide to the 'Skeptics Handbook' is now available in Czech. Many thanks to Jenik Hollan who did the translation. As well as the A5 PDF for online reading, you can also download the A4 PDF for printing out to fold into an A5 booklet.

Just to let you know a little about Jenik, he studied physics at Masaryk University in Brno. Since then, he's worked at the N. Copernicus Observatory and Planetarium, done research in meteor astronomy and pollution of the natural night environment by artificially added light and in thermal properties of windows. He's taught astronomy at the Fac. of Education and lectured on environmental issues at Masaryk Uni. He's also compiled a great set of climate resources translated into Czech.

Thanks to some feedback from Jenik, I've also added some units to the bottom of the figure on Page 9, so it's clear what the numbers mean (Watts per square metre per year, the trend in downward infrared radiation).

Lastly, many thanks to John Russell who created a two column version of the Word document the translators have been working from. This makes things clearer and easier for both the translators and myself. So if you're currently doing a translation of the Guide, please download the updated Word document. Thanks!
