Hello Mr. Anderson, saw your brilliant response
to the Climategate question in The
There is one wonderful project I mention in the book - the SEARCH programme for sea ice in which every
year scientists say at the beginning of the year how much sea ice they think will be left
at the end of the summer. Month by month they revise their predictions, they explain why
they're revising them.
All the discussion is on a website open to the public - transparent, how
scientists think, when they get things wrong, how they deal with error. That's the way to
go and not more and more exchanges of emails between people who think they're battling the
world. I think that's completely wrong.
and thought you might be interested in a similar means of innovating science process
somewhere between the Climate
Collaboratorium and iPhone
App: Science vs
Climate Change: Get Smarter:
Thanks for your insight, going to get your book and thanks for your time,
