We hear it all the time; 99% of scientists agree. All it takes, though, is one overlooked fact to tumble a consensus.
Tiny Life Benefits the Whole World
April 19, 2018
Some very small organisms can produce global effects, such as the tiny crustaceans that stir the oceans every night. What would the oceans be like without life? If minerals, gases and nutrients had to mix by diffusion, the process would be very slow. Wind and currents could help somewhat. Now, Houghton et al., publishing in […]
Science Fail: Shaky Assumptions Topple Long-Held Notions
October 3, 2017
Science is supposed to be self-correcting, we're told. But when towers of belief are built on assumptions later shown to be false, the consequences can be monumental.
Facing Reality About Life on Other Planets: Moon, Atmosphere, and Mass

This is part 3 of Dr Henry Richter's discussion on the requirements for life to exist on a planet elsewhere in the universe.
More Sources of Error in Climate Models
August 18, 2017
We continue examiningfindings that call into question the certainty of scientific consensus about global warming. Here are interesting papers from leading peer-reviewed science journals.
Chinks in the Climate Science Data
August 17, 2017
Consensus can be more robust than the data it rests on. That's true in Darwinism, and appears to be true in climate science, according to some published doubts.
Doubts About Climate Consensus
May 16, 2017
Several papers make it hard to believe that humans are to blame for climate change, or that scientists even know what is going on.
