All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

Science Under Assault!


John Droz Jr is a physicist environmental advocate and novelist.

The following address was published on Mar 7, 2013

Science is under siege from lobbyists for those with self-serving economic or political interests. This is detrimental to our society's survival. This talk was given to North Carolina  legislators on Feb 6, 13. The slides (without audio), plus 100+ extra slides, including six pages of references, are available at ScienceUnderAssault.Info. Make sure to download the PDF version there, as that will be the best quality.

John puts to rest that oft misquoted "97% of scientists..."

John talks of the precautionary principle. Our mutual friend Dr Gordon Fulks wrote of the Precautionary Principle HERE.


John refers to Michael Chricton's  2003 Caltech Lecture. The full text can be found HERE.
