The failings of institutional science

William M Briggs

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.”
