Whence Waves Wither

Big Bang BICEP2 bombs. Gravitational waves disappear under the withering skeptical gaze of the scientific method. A worrying disregard for the scientific method in some very senior scientists who really should know better” – Ouch! That’s gotta hurt.

Fat, the food that keeps on giving. Investigator Nina Teicholtz’ results spur the US Gov to withdraw cholesterol warnings and UK Gov to rethink saturated fat advice. Government dietary fat recommendations were untested in any trial prior to being introduced.”

Global Warming has just taken more body blows. World-UN Climate Panel chief Pachauri  resigns amid sexual harassment police charges.
