Peer review: Verdens smarteste hund Dr Olivia Doll

Filed under: Australien, Eksperter, Evidens, Greenies, Klima, Medicin, Videnskab — Hodja @ 22:30

Perth Australia is now home to the world’s smartest dog, at least on paper.

Local “academic” Dr Olivia Doll — also known as Staffordshire terrier Ollie — sits on the editorial boards of seven international medical journals and has just been asked to review a research paper on the management of tumours.

Her impressive curriculum vitae lists her current role as senior lecturer at the Subiaco College of Veterinary Science and past associate of the Shenton Park Institute for Canine Refuge Studies — which is code for her earlier life in the dog refuge.

Ollie’s owner, veteran public health expert Mike Daube, decided to test how carefully some journals scrutinised their editorial reviewers, by inventing Dr Doll and making up her credentials.

The five-year-old pooch has managed to dupe a range of publications specialising in drug abuse, psychiatry and respiratory medicine into appointing her to their editorial boards.

Dr Doll has even been fast-tracked to the position of associate editor of the Global Journal of Addiction and Rehabilitation Medicine.

Several journals have published on their websites a supplied photo of Dr Doll, which is actually of a bespectacled Kylie Minogue.

Professor Daube said none of them smelt a rat, despite Dr Doll’s listed research interests in “the benefits of abdominal massage for medium-sized canines” and “the role of domestic canines in promoting optimal mental health in ageing males”.

Today Ollie is being featured in a more reputable publication, the Medical Journal of Australia’s Insight magazine, which is looking at the surge in journals which charge desperate would-be researchers up to $3000 to get their studies published.

“While this started as something lighthearted, I think it is important to expose shams of this kind which prey on the gullible, especially young or naive academics and those from developing countries,” Professor Daube said.

He said the authors would be gutted to know their papers were being reviewed by a dog, who often needed to be offered a treat before she dragged herself in front of the laptop. “It gives all researchers paws for thought,” Professor Daube said.

Dr Doll refused to comment unless she was taken for walkies.

metroXpress skriver i dag: “Antarktis har fået ny issprække”

Længere nede i artiklen står der: “Forskere har tidligere estimeret vandstanden i verdenshavene til at kunne stige med 10 centimeter, hvis det store isbjerg dannes.”

Nu har vi igen med en journalist at gøre, som ikke gider faktachekke den propaganda, han spreder.

Selv på det stort set venstredrejede medie Wikipedia står der:

“Sea-level is not affected directly by the fragment breaking away from Antarctica, as the fragment is already floating on the ocean.”

DDR er gået i total Fake News propagandamode med klimaskræmmekampagne denne uge

For eksempel med isbjørnekannibalisme, hockey-stick i Vejrudsigten og klimaflygtninge.

Horisont DR i aften: Øen Isle de Jean Charles i Louisiana er ved at synke i havet.

Som sædvanlig er det hele løgn:

“Recent USGS work indicates that rapid relative sea-level rise is not the primary cause of erosion of the barrier islands.”

All of the news reports about “Resettling the First American ‘Climate Refugees’” exclusively blame AGW and rapid sea level rise for the plight of the Biloxi-Chitimacha-Choctaw people of  Isle de Jean Charles, despite the fact that the real causes of their dilemma are Andrew Jackson and geology.  Sea level rise in the vicinity of Isle de Jean Charles has been rather unspectacular…

Læs forklaringen her.

Og lad mig lige minde om denne her:

Steffen Kretz var, som “klima korrespondet” i Grønland, her hvor jeg bor. En af mine venner er fisker og fanger og Steffen Kretz opsøgte ham og forklarede ham at han i et interview gerne ville have ham til at sige: “Man kan ikke længere skyde sæler på isen pga klimaforandringer”, min ven svarede at det ville han ikke, for det ville være en løgn, godtnok forandrer naturen sig, måske menneskeskabt, måske ikke, men sæler kan man altså stadig skyde på isen. Steffen Kretz sagde så: “Men kan du så henvise mig til en fanger der vil sige det?”.

Steve Milloy fra JunkScience slås videre med EPA (Enviroment Protection Agency) og NAS (National Academy of Sciences)

EPA og NAS prøver på at feje ham ind under gulvtæppet, men han har bidt sig fast.

Scare-Pollution-Cover-Final-122116-300x433Meget kort fortalt drejer det sig om, at EPA påstår, at luftforurening (PM2.5) er øjeblikkeligt dræbende, samtidig med at de har udført medicinske eksperimenter med luftforurening på lungesyge patienter og børn, efter de har informeret forsøgspersonerne om at det var ufarligt. Altså eksperimenter, der ifølge Nürnberlovene er uetiske og ulovlige. NAS har hvidvasket EPA.

Steve Milloy vil tvinge myndighederne til enten at indrømme, at luftforurening med partikler er ufarlig – eller at EPA principielt har udført menneskeeksperimenter etisk på linje med nazisternes forsøg på KZ-fanger. Der er kun de to muligheder.

Hvilken betydning har kampen? Det drejer sig om milliarder i forskningsbevillinger, afgifter og ødelagte industrier over hele verden. Kulindustrien, partikelfiltre på biler. Forbud mod brændeovne etc etc.

Det er forståeligt, at myndighederne kæmper med næb og kløer for at opretholde illusionen om, at luftforurening med partikler er livsfarlig.

Læs bogen – hele argumentationen er der – meget letforståeligt.

Hvorfor alarmisterne ikke vil basere deres klimapolitik på videnskab

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) may soon be required by federal law to base its policies on actual science—and of course environmentalists are livid about it.

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) reintroduced a bill known as the Secret Science Reform Act that would prohibit the EPA from “proposing, finalizing, or disseminating regulations or assessments based on science that is not transparent or reproducible.” The bill was originally introduced in 2014 though it did not clear all congressional hurdles. Barack Obama—our most super-sciencey president ever—vowed to veto it if ever reached his desk.

Don’t believe me? Here’s the opening sentence from an oppositional op-ed by Dianna Wray of Houston Press: “A lot Republicans hate the Environmental Protection Agency, but have left it to San Antonio Republican Representative Lamar Smith to come up with a bill that, if passed, could actually stop the agency from doing just about anything.”

Oh, I see—if it weren’t for secret science, the EPA wouldn’t have any science at all. According to Wray, if they can’t hide their data and refuse to show their calculations they’ll be “crippled.” There’s just one problem with this idea—secret science is a contradiction in terms. Science isn’t science if its results can’t be held up for inspection, judged worthy or unworthy, and accepted, refined, or rejected. If a theory is too delicate to withstand the heat and pressure of scrutiny, it doesn’t deserve anyone’s acceptance.

Legally speaking, the word “science” was defined in McLean v. Arkansas (1982), a famous court case that exiled creation science from public schools. Judge William Overton found that creation science was not science at all because it failed a five-prong test. According to his decision genuine science must:

1)     be guided by natural law;

2)    be explanatory by reference to natural law;

3)    be testable against the empirical world;

4)    have conclusions that are tentative, i.e. are not necessarily the final word; and

5)    be falsifiable.

Anything that fails even one of these prongs cannot rightly be called science. That’s a high standard. Some might call it too high, though that would depend on whose theory is being put to the test. Nonetheless, the McLean test has value. Ideas that don’t live up it cannot legitimately be called scientific. Whether they’re true or not is another question entirely.

The EPA Lied — Nobody Died

The EPA human experiments controversy is now over.

As between choosing whether EPA committed multiple felonies vs. lying to the Congress/public about PM2.5 killing people, the National Academy of Sciences has chosen the “lying’ option. Total victory achieved.

A controversy that first appeared in these pages five years ago, came to an end last week. The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) concluded that human experiments with air pollutants conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) were not dangerous — meaning EPA has been lying to the public and Congress for years about the extreme danger of the “pollutants” in question.

[…]

So when the first Obama EPA administrator, Lisa Jackson, testified to Congress that “Particulate matter causes premature death. It does not make you sick. It is directly causal to dying sooner than you should,” that was a lie, one compounded by her next false claim that particulate matter kills about 570,000 Americans per year.

[…]

As it turns out, the only time EPA told the truth about particulate matter was when it told its human guinea pigs that the experiments were harmless. Meanwhile the Obama EPA used the phony killer particulate matter scare — backed by almost $600 million in utterly fraudulent scientific research and fueled with secret scientific data — to virtually wipe out the U.S. coal industry, severely harming coal miners, their families and their communities.

Epidemiologiske studier over luftforurening er utroværdige

LUFTFORURENING

Aktivister overdriver skader på Great Barrier Reef

The chairman of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, Russell Reichelt says that activist groups are distorting surveys, maps and data to exaggerate the coral bleaching on the reef.

The bleaching affects 22% of the reef and is mostly localized to the far northern section, which has good prospects of recovery.

Two reef groups are in conflict. One is Reichelt’s GBR Authority, and the other is a special “National Coral Bleaching Taskforce” run by a guy called Terry Hughes. The Australian media was overrun with stories last week about how a report was censored to hide the damage. What was under-reported was the conflict and the propaganda.

The real problem appears to be that yet another agency was set up to find a crisis, and their existence depends on finding one. The Taskforce was set up in October last year.

We have the largest coral reef structure in the world, but sometimes the ABC can’t find a picture of bleaching from it, instead using an image from Samoa (top right). Greenpeace used the same trick.

Interview med Steve Milloy forfatter til ‘Scare Pollution’

EPA er USA’s superaktivistiske miljøagentur Environmental Protection Agency.

EPA står bag junk forskning i bl.a. luftforurening, som er medvirkend51lat5pxpfl-_sx322_bo1204203200_e til enorme unødvendige udgifter for den vestlige verden.

Steve Milloy har stillet myndighederne i USA overfor et kæmpe dilemma. EPA går officielt ud og siger (EPA administrator Lisa Jackson som vidnede overfor en underkommitte fra House Energy and Commerce Committee 22. september 2011):

“Particulate matter causes premature death. It doesen’t make you sick. It’s directly causal to dying sooner than you should”

Samtidig har Milloy med ihærdigt arbejde gennem flere år påvist, hvordan EPA har fået gennemført illegale forsøg på mennesker (inklusive børn) med udsættelse for meget store doser luftforurening uden at informere forsøgspersonerne om risikoen for bl.a. at dø.

Så systemet har kun 2 muligheder: ENTEN er luftforurening ikke så farlig, som EPA påstår (hvilket er Milloys egentlige ærinde), og så kan myndighederne ikke regulere ‘luftforurening så rigidt, som de gør, ELLER EPA og adskillige amerikanske universiteter (som modtager i 100-vis af millioner dollar fra EPA til forskning) har overtrådt alle medicinske etiske regler for menneskeforsøg, som er blevet indført efter ‘Lægeprocessen’ ved Nürnbergdomstolen efter 2. Verdenskrig. Hertil kommer de læger som har udført forsøgene og de videnskabelige tidsskrifter, der har udgivet dem.

Der findes ikke andre muligheder.

Der er selvfølgelig ingen i Danmark, der har refereret sagen, som naturligvis også har betydning for dansk miljøforskning og -lovgivning. Man er for eksempel i gang med tiltag, der skal lægge afgifter på alle brændeovne i landet, og måske på længere sigt forbyde dem.

Congress is reading ‘Scare Pollution’… are you?

2016 var det varmeste år nogensinde – eller? Fake news?

They say that mathematics is the language of science, which is a way of saying that science is quantitative.

It is moved forward by numbers and measurements, not just by qualitative observations. “It seems hot out” is not science. Giving a specific temperature, measured by a specific process at a specific time, compared to other systematically gathered measurements—that is science.

So when you read an article proclaiming that, for the third year in a row, last year was the hottest year on record, you might expect that right up front you will get numbers, measurements, and a statistical margin of error. You know, science stuff. Numbers. Quantities. Mathematics.

And you would be wrong.

Istid?

Filed under: Greenies, Istid, Klima, Politik — husmanden @ 10:39

Uanset hvad det er så hører vi intet om det.

Vore hjernedøde politikere og presse lader os intet høre om vejret, der jo er klimaet nu og her, i resten af verden. Vi hører intet om is i Venedigs kanaler og bugten uden om.  Intet om is i Sortehavet, store snefald i Spanien, Italien, Israel og Nordafrika. Her er et lille indblik fra adapt.  Forhåbentlig står istiden ikke lige for døren, men skulle vi ikke tænke?
