FYI - "Thomas Eddington" is WSJ's mistake - Kerian's piece which originally appeared in First Things correctly identifies "Arthur Eddington."

Excellent piece, Russell. Keeping track of conservative journalism's...um, "issues" with science, is a thankless task.

Paul Rupert

I don't see any substantial difference between Kerian's call for better science and Mr. Sietz's own paean to uncertainty in his "Climate Wars" post at this website.

Quoting Kieran's piece at
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB121433436381900681.html?mod=opinion_journal_federation

However complex the information may be, the standards are quite clear. One need not be a Beltway newshound to know that whatever follows the phrase "unnamed sources in the capital" or "rumors in Hollywood are" is not real journalism. Similarly, one does not need an advanced degree in natural science to understand that whatever follows the phrase "most experts agree" or "no one can measure the exact effect but" is not real science.

RESPONSE

My 1990 piece exhorts journalists to read the science for themselves : Kerian's in The Wall Street Journal is prima facie evidence that he has not-.
He writes of :
" man-made global warming. This is a hypothesis that remains untested, makes no predictions that can be tested in the near future, and cannot offer a numerical explanation for the limited evidence to which it clings. No equations have been shown to explain the relationship between fossil-fuel emission and global temperature. The only predictions that have been made are apocalyptic, so the hypothesis has to be accepted before it can be tested."

Every assertion in this passage is baldly untrue, as any who have troubled to read the science in question can testify- Kerian's piece manifests the ravages of reliance on secondary sources

Joseph Previtali

Let's see if I get this right? The "scientific" and "academic" response to Mr. Kerian's article is to engage in ad hominem attacks on his editor and him. I am dizzied by the scholarly heights to which, thanks to this article, I have soared.

RESPONSE

Glad to see you made it this far . Now flap on over to the sidebar and help yourself to the climate science links before you lose altitude.

Paul,
I'm afraid that you got nothing right. Since you're concerned about scientific and academic evidence, note that neither appear in Kerian's article. One can't be surprised when such "complaints" are not specifically addressed.

George Bush was given reports in his first year saying climate change is here, real and requires action. His delay strategy included spending more than anyone, (more than countries which accepted the 2001 findings and initiated action). Such poor judgement will prove costly for us.

The climate budget goes mostly to military contractors building sensor spacecraft and for computer time to run models. Kerian's cheap accusation says more about his own mentality than the motives of scientists. But given that he demonstrates no understanding of their findings, that is not surprising.

It is very disappointing when respectable editions allow themselves to release unscientific speculations.

. Never mind that the Mount Saint Helen's sized blowout failed to punch a hole in the sea ice directly above it- the two mile water column evidently providing ample quenching of the heat.

This is a wonderful site. The things mentioned are unanimous and needs to be appreciated by everyone.
