“Watt’s Up With That?” is a great blog that I enjoy viewing on occasion. It is an anti-global warming site, though one of the more intelligent that I’ve come across, and — regardless of what you think of the subject — Anthony Watts does a great job of pointing out some of the errors of “groupthink” in his field.
Yesterday saw a nice entry (“Another scientific consensus bites the dust”) in which he highlights the discovery that something taught for quite some time — about Earth’s magnetic field protecting our atmosphere in a way that Mars and Venus do not experience — is apparently completely wrong. And, discovering this was apparently a simple matter of a few scientists getting together to compare notes.
I used to love science and loved thinking that scientists have everything figured out. Now I still love science, but I enjoy it more when we discover that some old ideas need to be thrown out for new ones, so stories like this always get my attention.
For GW supporters and skeptics, alike, I consider Anthony Watt’s blog to be must reading for those serious about the subject. I mention it here simply for your consideration.
