Science is broken

From Net Zero Watch

Net Zero Watch is today publishing an important paper on the failings of institutional science.

The author, statistician and philosopher of science Professor William M Briggs, takes the reader on a journey through the dizzying array of problems that affect science today, from the fallacy of falsification, to dodgy models, to the crisis of replication and more.

Professor Briggs said:

Not all science is broken, but much of it is, and much else is of little real use. Why is this? I hope my paper explains why.”

Net Zero Watch director Andrew Montford said:

This is a thoroughly entertaining romp through the details of a very serious problem for society. Briggs has deployed his wit and wisdom to great effect.”
