  • Stochastic Stern Thu, 25 Feb 16, 8:33pm
    You know all that money we have been spending on developing economic models of the effects of climate change? Well apparently it has mostly been wasted...
  • Two worlds collide Tue, 23 Feb 16, 9:11pm

  • A $100,000 climate prize Thu, 19 Nov 15, 2:28am

  • What DECC knew Thu, 6 Aug 15, 12:08am

  • The temperature and the spin Sat, 17 Jan 15, 8:20pm
    Many scientists on the whole seem to have been suitably cautious about alleged record-breaking temperatures, taking care to place the new data in the context of the error bars...
  • The Chemist in Langley has another post on type 1 and type 2 errors, which is just as good as his last one. I found this quote particularly perspicacious:
  • Oreskes on statistics Tue, 6 Jan 15, 10:26pm
    Naomi Oreskes' article in the New York Times the other day, in which she called for use of 90% rather than 95% confidence intervals, seems to be generating quite a lot of interest.
