  • Wrong-speed dating Wed, 9 Sep 15, 9:41pm
    Last year I posted a series of articles about statistical issues surrounding radiocarbon dating, a subject that is important in its own right but also directly impinges on the climate debate because of the way in which it...
  • Defusing the methane bomb Tue, 18 Aug 15, 6:37pm
    Environmentalists and some of the more eccentric members of the scientific community like to allude to the possibility that the Arctic permafrost will melt, releasing a methane time bomb into the atmosphere which will inevitably...
