Climate Change and the Art of Science

Having an article published in a peer-reviewed journal doesn’t mean the author or authors are right, but while far from perfect academic journals sift out much totally shoddy research. Better yet, journals provide starting points for other researchers who may or may not agree with the conclusions of the original researchers.

Right now, for example, I’m reading Rewards and Intrinsic Motivation: Resolving the Controversy by Cameron and Pierce, a work shredding studies done mostly in the 1970s. That’s the way science works. Someone concludes something, and, typically, others jump in sometimes agreeing and often disagreeing in glorious detail.

So where are the studies, the peer-reviewed articles contesting climate change?

Here’s a good article on that topic: “The Very, Very Thin Wedge of Denial”
