I Highly Recommend This iPhone/iTouch App.

One of the best science blogs out there is Skeptical Science. It is written by Aussie John Cook. His background is solar physics, among other things, and he does a fantastic job of showing the silliness of some of the wild things certain people say about climate science.
A few months back I was given the Woody Guthrie Award for a Thinking Blogger by Mike Kaulbars at Greenfyre’s. The recipient is supposed to pass it on to someone he feels is worthy of it.
So, after enjoying the award for a bit longer than I should have, I hereby award it to John Cook of Skeptical Science. Much deserved for many reasons, but his iPhone App. alone makes him worthy.
You should really get it. It is free and based on real science. Not the silliness put out everyday by Inhofe, Morano and the like.
Something else I read this week that I wanted to pass on.
It’s regarding the polls that show the public is now more skeptical of climate change. These are based mainly on false accusations labeled again Phil Jones and other at the University of East Anglia.
Same accusations against Dr. Ben Santer of Lawrence Livermore Labs. (Ben Santer I call a friend. He has more knowledge in his little finger than these people will ever accumulate).
Scientific Facts Live Independently of Public Opinion.
Not sure where I saw it, but it is very well put.
ps Good grief I misspelled the title. Fixed now!
What about a JV with my blog? Would be glad to hear from you!
Excellent post. If you want to listen to BBC Radio on the iPhone – I strongly recommend BBC Radio iPhone Streams – it is easily the best way to listen to BBC Radio on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and it’s free at BBCStreams.com.
Very informing post. If you are looking to listen to BBC Radio on the iPhone – I strongly recommend BBC Streams – it is easily the quickest and most reliable way to listen to BBC Radio on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and it’s free at BBCStreams.com.
I already use it Mark! It’s great too.
[…] in February, Skeptical Science was honoured to receive the Woody Guthrie award from Dan’s Wild Science Journal. The idea is the award gets passed on from blog to blog, to those whom they deem a ‘thinking […]
Found out about your website from John at Skeptical Science so you have now joined the elite on my bookmarks list. I am more of a Landscape Ecologist and Ecosystems Researcher than a climate scientist but it does affect what I am studying. It affects everyone, everywhere. So without further ado I will be reading more stuff from the climate science pages and anything else that catches my eye.
Keep up the good work.
John’s “Skeptical Science” is one of the best sites out there. I mentioned it during the seminar in Miami on Saturday.
