I’m off travelling for a few days, so will probably not be posting much – if at all – and may not have a chance to respond to comments. In fact, if I can do so, I will be trying to avoid the blog for a few days (I may, however, not succeed 🙂 ). I will say that there’s been an interesting spat between Roger Pielke Jr., and John Holdren (who is commonly referred to as the President’s top science advisor). If you want to know more, you could read Eli, or Sou’s, recent posts. All I’ll say is that if Roger thinks that what John Holdren is presenting is consistent with the evidence (as I think he does), then why is he arguing with him? Couldn’t he just say, “yes, I agree with that you’re saying. Maybe I should have made that clearer in my evidence”? Also, if people think that what you present appears misleading, maybe you’re not explaining yourself clearly enough. Just because everything that is said is factually correct does not immediately imply that the conclusions people will draw from what is presented is correct.
Anyway, I thought I’d leave you with a pick-me-up video from one of my favourite bands. Enjoy, and I will be back in a few days.
