If one of your major model inputs is off by up to 50%, what does that do to the precision of your predictions about degrees of temperature change a century from now?

Hidden Volcano Comes to Light

It was the largest volcanic eruption in history. It happened five years ago. Did you hear about it? Probably not. Here's why.

More Sources of Error in Climate Models

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.

More Reasons to Doubt Consensus

Recent scientific papers cast doubt on the ability of researchers to understand systems as complex as climate.

Doubts About Climate Consensus

Several papers make it hard to believe that humans are to blame for climate change, or that scientists even know what is going on.

The Myth of Science Self-Correction

Sounds good in theory: scientists check each other with peer review, and knowledge advances. In reality, scientists are only human.

Major Scientific Revolutions Are Still Possible

Beware the myth of progress. There's more scientists don't know than what they know.

Awe, Shucks: Backwards Causation in Scientific Explanation
