Really Sciency Stuff

This blog; Lazarus: Reason from a dead man walking, was started over a year ago and was a vehicle for collecting my comments on a range of forums, and blogs, mainly where I see reason and rationally disappear in an avalanche of nonsense.
Over that time I have posted on irrationally of religion, pseudo-science, astrology, medical quackery and I intend to continue to do so. But most of the posts here are clearly on the denial of Global Warming, Climate Change, and it's related science and research. So it seems that a separate blog specifically looking at it's portrayal, misrepresentation and denial in the media was the way to collect all this in a single place.

So I have started a second blog; Really Sciency. It must be noted that this Blog has more than a passing resemblance to Real Science, the  climate denial and political blog by Steven Goddard, which should not to be confused with any actual real science. I chose to parody it because it is hard to imagine another blog that has strayed so far from reasoned analysis and debate on the science of climate change. The irony and Orwellian nature of it's title sealed the deal.

They say that imitation is the greatest form of flattery so perhaps the author of Real Science will imagine some sort of accolade at the mimicry but if being parodied because you are so far from reality is seen as a good thing then being accused of being in denial is case proven.

Mr Goddard is such a prolific poster that I have no intention of responding to any more than a small fraction of his posts. But a quick look at his content shows that many of the posts are purely political, simple cherry picking and often just immature nonsense in any case.

I intend to initially populate Really Sciency with a few posts related to 'Real Science' that I have previously posted here and then it will be original posts, whether specifically related to something on 'Real Science' or not, but I will mirror all posts across my two blogs for a while so that my few readers can either follow both or migrate to this one if they are only interested in Climate Change. Links between both sites will always be available.

If you do subscribe to this blog or follow it in any way please do so for Really Sciency.


  1. Sounds exciting although Steven Goddard is just one of many climate deniers, I wonder if you focus on one you might be feeding their over inflated ego. A good example of a site successfully 'fisking' is Wotts Up With That by Ben.


  2. BTW check this out you'll like it

  3. I don't think Goddard's ego could get any more inflated, even though I see he has only just over 100 subscribers. I don't intend for it to be all about his site and when it is I will only point out the absurdities, misrepresentation's etc.

    Wotts is great and to be honest that gave me the idea of mimicking a denier site when I decided to have a blog just for climate.

    I left you a message to get in touch on your own blog, did you get it? Any chance of getting in contact with you directly/privately to talk about a little project I'm considering which you may be able to help with?

    Please tell me that 'twitpic' is a joke. It can't be serious, surely?

  5. Wow, that twitpic item must have been written by someone in denial of the fact that they urinate. ;)

    I'll check out that new blog Lazarus. Although I'm already suffering from blog overload.

    Happy New Year. :)
