Science and Retractions

Retraction Watch, http://retractionwatch.com/, is a blog that monitors scientific and other journals for retractions. It sounds really simple, and the basic concept is. But the implications are fascinating.

And you should get the same results, within the inevitable instrumentation error. If you get a very different result, something is seriously wrong.

A scientific journal should make every reasonable effort to ensure that published papers are accurate. Peer review at its best is part of this process, but has its critics. Peer review and the editorial process don’t catch everything. Occasionally an error slips through and a paper is retracted.

The Supreme Court has never before granted a stay of any federal regulation while it was under review by a lower court. What are the implications for Wyoming?

Political Aspects of the Clean Power Plan

“I've got a pen, and I've got a phone.” – Barack Obama

The name “Clean Power Plan” would suggest it is about clean electrical power, and, ostensibly, it is.

“The EPA has become a rogue political arm of the White House,”

Reliability and the Clean Power Plan

Such is the stuff of unicorns and leprechauns.
– FERC Commissioner Tony Clark

One aspect of the Clean Power Plan (CPP) we have not yet discussed in this series of blogs on the Clean Power Plan is the reliability of America's electric power generation in 2030.

That only 74,000 people were left with no power is a tribute to some excellent engineering. For how much longer?
