Stand Back, I’m About To Try SCIENCE

Via Pavlov’s Cat comes this further evidence of the sad decline of our public broadcaster. Here we have a genuine mystery. Two approaches are possible: investigation using scientific techniques of hypothesis testing, or sitting back in one’s chair and summoning the full force of prejudice (in the original meaning of the word).

Guess which the ABC decides to promote?

And we wonder why global warming deniers grow like wildflowers.


About Stephen Luntz

I am a science journalist, specialising in Australian and New Zealand research across all fields of science. My book, Forensics, Fossils and Fruitbats: A Field Guide to Australian Scientists is out now through CSIRO Publishing. I am also a professional returning officer for non-government organisations. I'm very politically active, but generally try to restrict this blog to scientific matters.
