The Arctic ice is growing (not) and the strange world of partial science

One of the science blogs that I follow had a nice link relating to one of the arguments against climate change.

Basically, the person picked the data that supported his argument, rather than bowing to ALL of the data (which implied things that did not support his pet theory). We can all feel his pain - it is sooo disappointing to have the data go against what you think, but one just has to buck up and accept it.

Anyway, in the spirit of the training session we just did on how science works and the social world of scientists, you can check out a couple of insider science blogs.

These blogs come via a cool science journal, SEED.

See: Deltoid

or the longer article at Skeptical Science

or you can look at this other blog that just has a nice color picture of a fruitfly brainbow.
